    Hi there,

    Message from Amazon:

    Since your website doesnt appear to be finished, were unable to view your content in its entirety...

    and bla bla bla... , so they do not accept me in to their associates network as website I provided seems not finished [​IMG]

    Can I just provide other decent website (not mine) ? I just need to get accepted, as I'm not gonna use that website to drive traffic and so on

    you can use someone else website, and start displaying their ads.. but it will be against their TOS and for every domain you add in your affiliate account, you need to verify it..

    You need to create content or you can hire someone to create content for your site. Then ask your site to reviewed by Amazon. This way is better than using other else website!

    It`s so easy to get accepted on Amazon. Buy domain, add some content (even spun content with Word-Ai, Spin Rrewriter) and add their terms on your site and apply. After you have applied you can already start sending traffic to them (it makes acceptance quicker) and your done. Within an hour you have a full website (which they will accept) and got regitered. Easy!

    I don't think they accept email marketing without a proper website

    You can do direct sales through email, but once you get caught they will drop the ban hammer me thinks. I was doing it without knowing it was wrong, but only helping existing customers, stopped soon as I found out you shouldn't be doing direct links without a website.

    Still read there are lots of big sites promoting Amazon affiliate links via emails. I'm kinda confused tbh

    I've got one verified on a 'complete' but crappy site. Just make something small and easy, mine was for my podcast and just had an about and links to FB/Soundcloud etc. They seem more likely to approve podcasts as affiliates.

    Is your site the only referrer or do you promote direct links elsewhere as well? Wondering if Amazon count sales if it came from other site than your website (forums, newsletter)
