You are not paid by hubpages but you can join google adsense, amazon, Ebay partners.
Then you can link those accounts to your pages by logging into hubpages clicking "
my account" and going to "affiliate trackers" I think or something affiliate
Then once you do that hubpages will split it 60/40 60% with you and 40% with them it is explained in this site (not mine) but it got me started copy and paste the whole site below even if its clickable it will not work if you do not copy and paste the id part!
Hope this helps!
