I was wondering, if someone clicks on, say a book that you have on your hub in an amazon capsule... and while they are there, they navigate away from that book, but they buy another one somewhere on amazon. Does that count toward your account, or do they have to buy the book that you sent them to for it to count?
No, they don't have to buy the book--as a matter of fact, one of the hubs I wrote is on how to make kids' Indian outfits for Halloween, but I constantly get sales from Amazon on that hub from people buying already made outfits, lol...
And other items, too, on other hubs, which I guess is more what you were asking. A lot of items I've gotten sales from were not what I was writing about in the first place, which sometimes is a good thing, commission-wise!
From what I understand, as long as your cookie for Amazon is still active, then you get credit for the sale.
I don't know how long the cookie remains active, but maybe someone more experienced than myself could explain it. Hopefully someone else will come along and do just that.

When does it say "active" for Amazon under my account. Does it take awhile to show that? I thought I signed up to it right.

I've started writing more articles here after not being so active for a year or so. One of the reasons I was discouraged from putting time into HubPages was the removal of Amazon capsules. This had a hugely detrimental...
