    Ok fuck it seems that Apple Store have set some certain rules to be automatically accepted into their affiliate programs. Does anyone know this? From what I know, it's probably a certain publisher location, or a publisher category. To those who got accepted if you don't know this kindly just state your location and category, I would be grateful.

    I got automatically denied. Please help.

    I think that a lot of it is volume based. I got auto-denied for Oakley, but after pushing a lot of volume through CJ reapplied and was accepted. -e-

    I was auto denied as well.. I could not find contact information even on their website (affiliate section)....Normally CJ lists email address and phone number of Affiliate Manager of the Company but for Apple Store this info is missing....

    I made it in that on the first try.. Just get some sort of revenue (regular monthly) with them and they will let you in...

    has anyone tried skimlinks.com? They take a small cut of all your commissions, but they are already accepted on pretty much all affiliate networks. So if you get approved on skimlinks, you have easy access to all merchants, from one manageable account. Also, u just add some js code on your site, and it automatically converts a normal say amazon.com link to an affiliate link on the fly, so you can link direct to amazon and your users wouldn't see it as an affiliate link. I guess this is for lazy bloggers, but if you're having trouble getting accepted, try this route instead.

    They are quite new but have about 5000 merchants from US and UK

    skimlinks is very choosy as well

    anyone can confirm if you can get into Apple Store via skimlinks ??

    >> [email protected]

    if the program is managed by him directly,
    i guess he will welcome smaller publishers as well.

    What other sites are good alternatives to Apple Store ?

    Don't sweat it, I have been really successful on CJ. Got my own developed website, good 3 month EPC, live in the US and Apple still denied me.

    Guys. Don't waste your time. As an Apple affiliate, I will not be promoting them anytime soon. No commission on iPod, iPad, or iPhone.
