I have an Amazon affiliate account. However, the hubs tutorial explained linking the account by just using the product's URL. How am I making any money if my account name is not embedded in the code or url because the top one won't have my account name embedded. How does hubs or Amazon know to credit me?
if you have your Amazon affiliate code set under 'accounts' on HP, then your code is automatically inserted into any Amazon capsule you put on your hubs.
Remember too that that HP's affiliate code will be there 40% of the time, and yours will be there the other 60%.
As Izzy says, it is automatic once you have filled in the Amazon code in the "affiliate settings" under "my account". From that point HubPages does all the work for you, inserting your code wherever it is needed.
I did that a couple days ago. Thanks for the helpful feedback.
