Amazon Associate!, When should you apply?

Last Update: January 12, 2016

Good day all,

I am in the early stages of my site build for my chosen niche, however I see my self filling it with content over the next few weeks after work and getting it to a good stage.
I have the Jshop theme on wordpress because eventually I wish to build a shop page using affiliate products from Amazon related to my niche, my question today to you all is, when should you apply to become an Amazon Associate so you can have product links on your site, under reviews etc?
Do you need to be highly ranked on google first?
A lot of what I will write about will incude a recommendation to a product or a story related to a certain product that could be then offered to purchase.

Your top tips to what to have so Amazon agree and when to apply would be more than appreciated and I look forward to all your advice!

Have a nice day,

Bryan

I would say to have all the basics like Privacy about contact pages and about 4-6 informative posts. 100% unique and helpful to your readers. Amazon should temporary approve you then immediately. However when you make your first sale, amazon will manually go back and look at your site to make sure it complies with there STRICT rules. Don't break them, not even by accident. Once they see your site isnt copied, spam etc they should approve you 100%. Then they do random inspections on your sites over the years to make sure your still a 'good affiliate'.

Excited to continue and get to that mile stone!
