Application Review Process

We look for associates who are a value-add for Amazon customers – if you’re a passionate reviewer, stylist, content creator or curator who would like to refer your audience to products on Amazon, you may be the right fit.

After you sign up, our Associates team will check your application once you’ve driven qualified sales (we require at least three within the first 180 days). Please note that personal orders do not qualify. In our review, we check all of the Sites you’ve provided (websites, mobile apps, and social network pages) to ensure that they meet our customer experience bar. All Sites must have robust original content (even when advertising is removed) – a good rule of thumb is at least 10 posts. They must be publicly available (for example, they should not be a closed group, or behind a paywall). Unsuitable Sites cannot participate under any circumstance.

This is what we’re looking for in for each of these categories. Please review these carefully before your submission and during your review period, as we will reject applications if they do not meet these standards. Unfortunately, we aren't able to reassess an application once it's been rejected. Please also remember to keep your Site list updated so that we are reviewing the right traffic sources.

Websites

Content on your website must be recent (generally within the last 60 days). You must own your website.

Mobile Apps

Your app must comply with our Mobile Application Policy requirements

Social Networks

We currently only accept the following social networks: Facebook (including open group pages and fan pages), Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Twitch.tv. Your application must clearly list your account or group (do not list the social network url only).

Your social network account or group must be established, with a substantive number of organic followers/likes (in most cases, at least 500). It must be publicly available (for example, no closed group pages).

Useful reminders

Please also keep in mind that under the Operating Agreement you need to identify yourself as an Amazon Associate with the language provided here. You cannot offer any person or entity any consideration, reward, or incentive for using your links, or request support through use of your links (for example, by referring to proceeds from orders going to a particular charity or organization, or promoting use of your links to support you or your company).
