A few days ago, I went through all the steps of applying to Amazon's affiliate program and I now have full access to the associate area of their site. However when I tried to insert an affiliate link into one of my posts, it doesn't work. Nothing comes up except a "not found" page. Is this because I haven't been all the way approved yet? Why would I have access to these affiliate links if I can't use them?

If they have approved you then you should be able to and links are you choosing the html code, make sure your inserting it in text mode to and save.. sometimes we can miss out the small things

Actually..nevermind I guess. I just tried again and it is working fine now, even though I am doing the exact same thing I was earlier... Technology is weird!

it takes as much time to get approved as it does to lose your account. If you have not got enough traffic ie hundreds of visitors per day you should not even be thinking of being an affiliate for Amazon. It is too late fro you but it may help others from losing their affiliate account

No, if you have access you're all set.
Many have problems with the links.
