I was wondering since HP is doing this Amazon program now for us, does this mean we need to use a different code when setting up Amazon on our own website? Apply for another account or????
I notice that the tracker code is for HP. I am trying to set up a widget for my own site and want to make sure I set it up right.
No you can use the same code, but it's a good idea to go to your account and get a new tracking ID for your own site (just so you can see where the sales are coming from).
HP isn't doing the Amazon program for us - not yet. There's still a question mark (I think) over whether they will make us all switch to their Amazon account, or allow us to continue using our own if we choose.
If they do switch us all over, then they will use their Amazon account, not our accounts. So you won't be using the tracking code on HP any more, and you'll be free to use it on another site if you want.
However it's pretty simple to set up another tracking code, so you might as well!
Thanks Marisa. For some reason when I made a widget for amazon on my own site it inserted the HP tracker. I need to straighten that out.
As Izzy said, just set up a new tracking ID. You don't have to, it's not "stuck" to Hubpages, just makes it easier to track sales.

When I signed up for HubPages, things were done differently. I may have signed up with an amazon ID, that is now defunct. I am wondering now, if the new way references the ID I signed up with; unfortunately I can see no way to check. Can someone provide me insight on this please?

I have been trying to track this down for the last few weeks. Many of my Amazon Ads are using "hubpages-20" as the Amazon ID Tracking code. (My Tracking code is "chef...-20") This all started when HP switched to the new Amazon module. A few things I noticed.1) On some pages it...

I have followed instructions on both HP and GA itself but when I get to the place where the upgrade should be, it's not there.I see what it is supposed to look like. Just can't figure out why my option to upgrade isn't there. Anyone that has insight is welcome to give me some pointers.
