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