Default Amazon Associate Network... easy to get accepted?

Hello everyone,

I'm fairly experienced in PHP & web design, but new to affiliate marketing, I was just wondering if you could give me some advice about the Amazon Associate program..

Is there anything I should know before signing up?

how easy is it to get accepted, is there anything I should be aware of before I apply?

- should I have a fully fledged website up and running based around the niche I wish to promote products in first, or can I submit any domain I own ragardless of it's current content? - is just a basic holding page of a domain I own and a brief explination of how I intend to use it enough?

They do seem to ask quite a lot of very specific questions about your domain, obviously the last thing I want to do is get rejected. Ultimately I intend on using SEO techniques to get a niche store full of amazon products ranking in search - as I haven't decided on a niche yet, I've not decided on the final domain name, so for now, for testing purposes, can I sign up using any active domain I own regardless of it's current content, or one with just a holding page so long as I explain to them what I intend to do with it?

Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give!

If you get a proper website that looks like a real media/advertizing company, you will get accepted asap.

Fill out the form and then call 'em up later. Speeds up the process.

Any questions just let me know

From what I remember I was approved right away. You should be fine just showing them any basic website.

Yeah, just a simple word press blog is enough for you to be accepted.
Mine was almost instantly approved too.

I applied for Amazon about a year ago. They asked me what methods would I use for advertising. I told them I would use PPC and I got denied because they dont allow that kind of traffic!

Cheers guys, I've submitted only a basic homepage, but explained my future plans in what I would consider to be a considerable amount of detail for both the site in question and several others I'll be working on, so hopefully they'll be okay with everything. I'll just have to wait and see! They automatically send you the affiliate ID upon registration, then you just have to wait for them to view your site and activate the Affiliate ID code, hopefully I'll not have to wait too long...

I managed to register in the dev area to obtain the API keys without any problems too, no authorisation was required for that. At least I can start experimenting with some code! - fingers crossed I receive the official acceptance email for the affiliate program soon.

I'll keep you posted.
