    Is there anyway to use national Amazon identity codes on Hubpages?

    Can you elaborate on what national Amazon identity codes are?

      Basically it is a plug in that allows a website to identify the region you live in and take you to the regional Amazon company. This is very good because it means you will have national postage and packing instead of expensive overseas p and p.

      This is a link to the plug in:

        Ah - that's been raised on Hubpages many times. If you do a search of the forums you'll find quite a few people asking why Amazon UK can't be used here. But as Sunforged said, there must be some reason they've decided not to.

    Yeah those are a pretty good tool, we have a localizer on xobba that will place the users country specific amazon code based on the vistors geo-location.

    Perhaps that is headache or a tax nightmare for a site of this size.

    Currently, the HP amazon capsules only allow for a US amazon id but you can direct link with your country code, many of the smarter uk writers make sure to add a noticeably link for their UK readers

      Yes the direct link is a good idea but I found that it can be cause me to be guilty of over-promoting.

      Wouldn't they also have to change their capsules so you had to use keywords?
