Okay... so 180 days flew by with no Amazon sales, so I've been booted out of the Amazon US Affiliate program - on the very day I got accepted to the UK, Spain and Canada programs. Was about to link them all up on my website, can I re-apply for Amazon US right away? Will all my book links still work as before, or do I have to re-do all of them?

You can reapply the same day you are cancelled. They just give you a new code number and you're good to go.

Every day I am waiting for the dreaded email! I know it's May sometime that my 180 days are up, so this was timely for me to see the responses. I am preparing myself to go through changing all the id's :)

I hear you Mara, I was exactly the same... if you can find a friend to click on any of the links in your site and buy a little something you can save yourself a whole lot of trouble.

Thanks Lauren - I made it doubly hard for myself, by joining US and living in the UK. Don't have friends in the USA per se, although I have tried to do an exchange with some on here that are affiliates with both.

Yes! You can reapply right away. Trust me I fought very hard to get into Amazon! It will change your affiliate id so you will have to change every amazon link you have on your website. I am so sorry you have to go through this. I went through it about 4 times and many hours on the phone with Amazon! I am finally an affiliate! Best of Luck!

Thanks so much Julie. Oh my word... I'd better make sure it doesn't happen to me again. That's a whole lot of links to change!

Hey @jjanquillare, may I ask why it was tough for you to get into Amazon? If it's not possible to share, I'd understand. But I thought I'd ask, in case there's something I am missing or don't know about. Thanks! :) - Pam

I think when you reapply to Amazon your affiliate ID will change. Mine did. If that's the case then the links won't work properly. The only way you'll find out how long before you can reapply is to just reapply and see what happens.
