    Anybody here use amazon associates? I tried to ask them about this but they told me to try back another time to catch associate specialist.

    The thing is when I signed up I remember it asked me for a website where I will promote products, and it says it will be reviewed after first sale.

    But since I made that Associate account, I made some other websites, and also posted affiliate links on social media....
    all come under the same Amazon tracking ID / Amazon associate account.

    But since they said the website will be reviewed... does that mean when I make a sale from any website or social media that they will go and review my original site and if they fail it for insufficient content or something, close my associate account and none of my websites worK!!! Is that possible?

    Because the idea I get is that many people post affiliate links, or use several websites to promote the products so are they all doing this under 1 associate account?

    Any advice apreciated ... cus amazon couldnt give answer and I have limited patience thanks!

    I do not quitte understand your question. What I do know is that they are probably going to approve your application if you make a sale. They just want to see if you are able to make a sale and drive traffic.

    lol I guess that makes sense. But iv seen people saying their account was not approved.

    Basically when I signed up with amazon associates, they asked me for my website address. They told me as soon as I make my first sale that they will review this website. Chances are the first sale will come from a different site that I never told amazon about. So my question is - Should I have made more than one amazon associate account when using several sites?

    Right now,,, im trying to find out if there is a section in my associates account to add more websites or social media pages.

    I'm sure it won't be a big deal.... just would be very annoying if a few websites stopped working at once

    If I were you, i will place the affiliate link on the site that is getting the most traffic, and when a sale is made, you can use it on other websites.

    Well.... I took a few wrong steps but found my answer! ><
    Just incase anybody else was wondering........

    I have more than one Web site. How do I enroll all of them in your program?

    You may use a single account and Associates ID for multiple Web sites. You can list all of your Web sites in the description field in Your Associates Account Information. If you need separate reporting for each site, Please note that there is a limit of 100 Tracking IDs per associate account. If you have further requirements, please



    We do not recommend that you create an Associates account for each Web site. It will be much easier for you to keep track of your earnings if you use a single account.

    Woo hoo.......... finally a sale! Not much money but it worth something after the effort put in.

    I would be interested to know what other peoples conversion rates are with amazon.
    I don't mean the conversion rate of your website itslelf... I mean how many people per 100 finalize a
    payment after being re-directed to amazon

    My conversion rate on clicks is 8-10%. Also, I think you saw that based on the explanation you copied over, but you can create separate tracking IDs for each site you own. This not only helps you keep track of which site is making you money, but it also keeps your websites from being clearly associated IMO.

    Yeah I seen that option the other day. I must separate them. Really do need a lot of organic traffic to make it worthwile considering many established e-commerce websites have a conversion rate under 10% and with an associate site that drops much further to one/10th of that as soon as the user clicks through.
