    I've heard of WP plugins that will automatically propagate your website with all the Amazon products and their titles/description. I was just wondering though, if i'm just starting out with Amazon and trying to get approved, will that cause me any issues using a plugin like that?

    Plus, do you guys have any suggestions for easy ways to get approved by Amazon's Affiliate program? Or is that really an issue with getting approved?

    Thank you! So that's also if I use one of the WP plugins? It sounds like they add a bulk amount of products into the site automatically. Just don't know if they're ok with all that automation.

    Amazon will give you 6 months to make a sale before they will officially approve you. I think its a new policy or smth. So the plugin thing should not be of any problem as long you can make a sale within 6 months.

    Amazon gives 90 days for you to make a sale. I made a sale yesterday and finally (after 8 attempts) Amazon approved. Mine is a gaming review blog. This is what I did:-

    1. Omit all other affiliate links that you have (until approval)
    2. I added links to Amazon Terms & Conditions and Participation Agreement (at the footer)
    3. Also added the below

    yoursite.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to (yoursite.com).
    All item links from this site goes directly to Amazon. The payment processing and fulfillment is performed 100% by Amazon. Problems with items, charges, and shipments are the responsibility of Amazon.


    I know you are asking about plugins but I hope this helps as well. Cuz I learnt it the hard way :p

    Are you talking about building astore?

    Do you also understand that this plugin creates plagiarism?
    The end problem is, you won't be able to promote
    this kind of site on the search engine.

    I always advice as a newbie you should stick with amazon review sites.
    You also need to know how to build them to get optimal result.

    You are wasting your time. amazon won't get your account full-approved. they do manual review after your first sale, and if they find your website is not an "established" website or only have amazon content instead of original content, they will reject your application.
