    I've tried several things,, I've had a full page of items from Amazon on the site (stuffforyou.co.uk) and still Amazon are not accepting me although im accepted on others such as Skimlinks and eBay. Any suggestions?

    Getting into Amazon is an easy thing. I don't know why are you facing difficulty. Your site is not loading to see where you are going wrong. I know people who got into Amazon with just four or five articles. Make sure that your site is appealing with unique content and neat presentation of the product. Follow their Affiliates Guidelines strictly (Read: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/agreement/).

    I also had a problem getting into Amazon's affiliate program. I made a review site similar to yours with about 5 articles and Amazon said they do not want "mini-Amazons".

    You need to build a store with a nice looking theme. Amazon has gotten a little harder on accepting slim sites and ugly site layouts.

    Just buy a simple azon store from a Fiverr seller and submit that for a approval..

    Or I can just do what Moonpeach did and download a theme. Apparently, it doesn't matter if the theme is 100% unique or a downloaded theme considering Moonpeach's website has the CandyZon theme from the website Themeplates.

    Thanks for this! I usually only use templates when I'm promoting Clickbank products, but I didn't use templates when I first applied to Amazon's affiliate program.

    I just followed the first part of this (setting up etc with addons/themes) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/58572-auto-blogs-cracks-how-i-make-3k-month.html . Next thing thatd be good would be to find something that will tweet everytime Associate Goliath posts, Twitter Tools is real good but that only works for manual posts and not automatic ones.

    I never said it had to be unique. It could be a 100% clone, it just can't be ugly as hell.

    Okay, I'm going to apply again either today or tomorrow since my online store is almost finished.

    I had the same problem with my site bestkidsfashion. This site uses Xenia Amazon plugin that generates huge amount of products on your store in minutes and Amazon did not like this fact. What I did is just changed a little my domain and put blog.bestkidsfashion where I just uploaded several posts and removed all ads. As a result Amazon accepted my site and after that I immediately changed the domain back. No problem.
