    Hi, I just want to make it clear before applying to Amazon.

    And I would also be interested in the same regarding the eBay affiliate program (don't want to open 2 topics for basically the same question:D).

    Thanks!

    Amazon don't. Not sure about ebay, they are a lot harder to get into nowadays.

    Ya, I signed up for the eBay affiliate about 3 years ago and they didn't make you do it then. I signed up for Amazon affiliate less than three months ago and I didn't have to do a phone verification then either.

    Good luck...

    Thanks for your answers!

    BTW what kind of website should I apply with to Amazon?
    Would a simple Blogger blog with 3-4 unique articles and very few visitors be good (like with AdSense), or do I need something more professional?
