I just got approved for Amazon so I've started adding a few products to my first Hub to do with winter safety. I added them in the Amazon capsule by their ASIN or ISBN #'s and I like the way it's turning out. But then I went to my Amazon account to make sure I was doing it right from the affiliate pov and for a link they gave me a whole paragraph of HTML. ???
My question is do I need to manually add my amazon affiliate ID to the capsules somehow in order to get my percentage (I put it in the form in the learning center when I was signing up--but now I don't know how to get back to where I did that to check it) or is it already built into the capsule?
Thank You for your time!
As long as you've added your affiliate ID into the My Account section of HP, you're good to go and don't need to input it anywhere else.
You can also select Amazon products by bringing up the page on Amazon and grabbing the URL. I find that to be much simpler. You might also want to try using keywords instead of individual products.

Last night I couldn't get an amazon capsule to appear in my new hub. I kept getting a message that says "Something went wrong..." I need this capsule to show the product I am talking about in my hub.

I am confused about putting a product on my hub. I can do the product, but if I try to imbed the description, it is HTML. I cannot find an answer at Amazon or in the FAQ here. I am a new associate. Thanks.

Authoring Hubs is about sharing and spreading ideas. Most of what we do is word-based, and a capsule to show off related Zazzle stuff would be an eye-catching way to allow readers interested in those ideas to buy...
