    I have a brand new website. Custom domain, https, great layout with logo...

    But no content yet.

    Will Amazon still accept me to their affiliate program? or do I need to get some content up first? If so, how much content?

    Thanks!

    I don't Think so any posts are required.
    All you must have is a website....
    But I'm not 100% Sure....

    It's not necessary for content but Amazon will check your website after the first sale. Amazon will not approve your website if you don't have enough original content on your site.

    I would suggest that you first build around 2 pages with 5 post each before applying. Because before you no it and you didn't make a sale within 180 days you will automatically be disapprove and then you need to reapply.

    Amazon checks your website after the first three qualifying sales. You must have 3. Not sure why everyone says 1sale. Maybe that was old way of doing things.

    I’ve read some stories of guys getting rejected because they didn’t have enough content. As far as how much content you need? Who knows as Amazon doesn’t do anything consistently when it comes to their affiliate program.

    I would guess that you definitely have to have at least some content because they have to know how your website is set up to see whether or not you violate any policies. They cannot possibly tell whether or not your website is OK if you have no content.

    I have website specially for amazon product, multiniche. All my website content is only amazon product. I have about 4K amazon product in the site, each product have related video, review, and description. No origin content - I'm lazy, just multiniche shopping site amazon product with auto promoting to social media, yes I'm too lazy. It just part of my experiment site. But yes, they pay me without any issue with the website content. I just have problem with their newest feature, Onelink - because now it's autoconvert geo.

    Thanks. I assume you use the ApI to auto generate content. Does it take a while for page to populate with their 1 second interval rule between db queries?

    Im having trouble getting prices to work exactly as I want them which is to pull straight from db.

    The price notes meaning the ‘price current as of 10.30.17 at 10.30am’ or whatever?

    Yes, using amazon aws api with 1 sec interval up to 100 post per schedule.
    Unfortunately I never get issue with getting price, so I don't have anything to suggest :(.
    Correct, price notes like you've mentioned :)
