Ok, so when I sign up for Amazon Affiliate accounts I have always used "real" sites that I own. But recently I've been taking on clients and offering full service marketing for their amazon affiliate accounts. Some have asked me "If I don't have a site right now can I just use any random URL to get approved to their affiliate program." Initially my instinct was to say "no, best we keep it whitehat to ensure payouts." But...in thinking back, Amazon has NEVER once asked to have me verify any sites I applied with for proof of ownership. So, does it really matter? Otherwise for clients that do not have sites I have to build sites for them to get approved (yes I know this is more money for me, but it is typically something I offer on the backend after I deliver more value). Charging more on the front end also creates a greater barrier to entry for newbs. And my target market are those making under $100 a month from the Amazon network. Appreciate the advice BHW team!
