Account Approval

Your Amazon Affiliate account will be opened and ready to make sales as soon as you complete the registration. After you make three sales, Amazon will then fully approve your account by checking your account details and your website.

Don't panic! It's easy to solve :)

Sometimes, when applying for an Amazon affiliate account, your application will get rejected. This is usually due to a lack of content; if this happens to you, don’t panic.
