Before you can create an Amazon Associates account, it's important to have a fully functioning website with content on it. Amazon requires that you provide details of your site during the sign-up process. Make sure you have at least 10 blog posts on your site before creating your account to avoid potential rejection.
Amazon Associates accounts are regionalized, meaning that the account you sign up for will determine the products you can promote and the commissions you can receive. For example, if you sign up for an Australian Amazon Associates account, you'll only be able to generate links and receive commissions from products available on the Australian Amazon storefront. If you want to promote products from the US Amazon storefront, you'll need to sign up for a US Amazon Associates account. The process for signing up to different regional accounts is similar.
When choosing which regional Amazon Associates account to sign up for, it's important to consider where most of your traffic will come from. This can be determined by where you plan to focus your promotional activities geographically, whether that be via SEO or other marketing strategies.
Our Shopify app has a feature that dynamically chooses the right affiliate link to show to your users based on their location. This ensures that they are always directed to the correct Amazon storefront. You can find more information about this feature in the link provided in the video description.
To sign up as an Amazon affiliate, you will need an Amazon account. Click on the sign-up button on the homepage of the regional Amazon Associates account of your choice. While you can use the account you already have for buying on Amazon, it's recommended to create a new one exclusively for your affiliate empire.
During the sign-up process, you will need to indicate who the main contact for the account is. Since you're likely the only person working on your empire, you can list yourself as the main contact. You will also need to list the websites and mobile apps where you plan to post your affiliate links. If you're only planning to use the site you just created, you can simply list its URL.
It's important to answer the questions about your traffic and content honestly. Having at least 10 blog posts on your site is strongly recommended as it increases the chances of your application getting approved. Avoid using content from other sites, as this may result in rejection.
Read and agree to the contract terms, and then click "Finish" to submit your application. Amazon will review your application, and it may take between one to three days to receive a response. You will receive an email once your application has been reviewed.
If your account is approved, you can start adding affiliate links to the content you've created. However, there are important ground rules and guidelines about the Amazon Associates program that will be covered in the next video.
