    Ok, so I've made a simple amazon review site. Very small reviews and many items. Basically that site is there to sell amazon products.

    I've heard they inspect your site first to decide whether they want to do business with you. Knowing how hard it is to get adsense approval these days - - Will amazon accept this site and approve me? As I say, at the moment - it only has small reviews on each item and click to buy links that lead to no where.

    Amazon automatically accept application, you only need to put a privacy policy on your site, letting your visitors know you earn with amazon links place on your site.

    I have never heard of the Amazon Affiliate process being difficult to get approval for. One good tip to follow is to make sure you have a regular verified Amazon sellers account before you apply for the Affiliate program. This further legitimizes your accounts in Amazon's eyes. The real thing you have to be careful with about Amazon is to make sure you are not in state that will eventually lose its Amazon access due to the tax fights and laws between Amazon and the states.

    Really? Where in the TOS does it say that? I don't remember any mention of it. I've been using Amazon as an affiliate for years and don't have any mention in my PP.

    They do not check your website before approval.
    They will review your site after you make some money.

    I am with amazon for years, I'm using several different sites and I never have any problem. I remember that my first site also had not english content. Amazon is not so strict as Adsense. So don't worry about not approving.
