    I found a specific niche, and want to do reviews of the products that are from one company. They sell on Amazon.

    I was wondering if the Amazon Affiliate program lets you pick any product on Amazon that you want to advertise. Or do they only allow certain products??

    I can't check, because to sign up I need to have the website first, which I don't. I don't want to make the website now and then be disappointed because it's not in the affiliate program.

    Thanks guys, great forum.

    You can pick up any product. They pay 4% commission for low volume of sales, and increase % if you sell more

    No you don't need a website, you can even sell using an Astore.

    Yeah amazon seems to let you promote any product, (at least I can get an aff link for a random product that is not sold by amazon itself).
    Though I can't guarantee 100% this apply to every products, but it seems like.

    You can choose any product of your choice mate . It is not like , you have to promote the product selected by amazon . Choose the product of that category in which you specialize . :)

    I thought new members could not give negative but were able to give a POSITIVE...

    is this a "pending" POSITIVE ???


    Have the rules changed??
