How to Sign Up for the Amazon AFFILIATE Program-Step by step guide for beginners


Hey everyone. In this video, I wanted to show you how you could set up for the amazon affiliate program. So you got to go on Amazon and you got a set up for that our affiliate program and then you will get a special link that you could use for all their products to put it on your YouTube videos, on your website and every time someone clicks on that link it will take you to Amazon but it will take it to that special link that you set up through your affiliate and you could get paid a percentage of that sale from Amazon and the duration of the time that person spends on Amazon you will get paid that affiliate from all the sales not just a product that led them to Amazon so for example if you’re talking about a lens or a camera and it leads someone to amazon.com let’s say they don’t buy that camera, but they browse around and buy something else, you get an affiliate commission from that sale. Now if it’s your first time on this channel, I make tech tutorials just like this one five times a week, so please consider subscribing. Before I jump on the computer and show you the process of signing up for an affiliate, I want to make one more comment about it. If you don’t make any sales within six months of signing up so if you sign up today and you don’t make any sales for six months at the time of this recording Amazon actually doesn’t approve you being part of the program. So make sure you have something set up make sure you have a little bit of following on a YouTube channel or a website before you sign up, so you didn’t get kicked out from amazon’s program. I’m talking about experience because when I first launched my youtube channel on the very first day I sign up for the Amazon affiliate program and six months later even though I had made close to a hundred videos I still didn’t have any sells or maybe I had one I think you need a minimum of three when I was doing it and they kicked me out of the program so this process I’m gonna show you how to do it again from scratch. I sign up for the program, and hopefully you could get at least a handful of cells in the first six months So you could stay with the program and not get rejected by Amazon alright. Let’s jump on the computer I want to show you where you find our philia program, and the steps that’s required to sign up for the Amazon affiliate program Okay So let’s go through the signup process the first thing you want to do is you want to go to Amazon? And you want to make sure you sign in in your accounts if you don’t do this now, it’s gonna Ask you to do it later when you sign up for that failure program So make sure you either have an account or you sign into your account So I’m gonna go ahead and sign into my account here, and once you’re signed into your account Let’s scroll all the way to the bottom of the page where you see the footer of Amazon.com and you should see Become an affiliate if you don’t see that just google Amazon affiliate, and it’ll probably link you to this page But once I click here it takes me to affiliate – program Amazon.com so that’s the URL where you could join for that affiliate program once you’re here You either could click on this banner or join now, so I’m just gonna say join now for free and I’ll follow this along You asked me to sign him one more time and it’s gonna ask me to confirm my address now again I have my information because I sign into my account so you already knew my shipping address So I’m gonna press next and now it’s gonna ask me to type in my dress again you can use a YouTube page here, or you could put in your Website URL. You could read these instructions here So the one I’m signing up for I’m based in the US so this is for the US Amazon affiliate program And it says you will need to apply separately for each international Amazon associate programs, so make sure you’re in the right region And you’re signing up for the right program because they are different. I’m showing you how to do this with the u.s. program if you look in the middle of the page it says your account will be closed if you do not make qualified referrals within the first hundred 80 days like I said before I Wasn’t able to do that the very first time I signed up for this so they actually closed my account and he says you could Reapply for the program once you’ve made the changes to the website I’ve made that judgments to the website to the URL So now I’m gonna go ahead and reapply for the program. So go ahead and read this if you need more instructions I’m gonna type in my website Here alpha Navy comm and I’m gonna go ahead and add it and you could add multiple websites here So I got one more website. I’m gonna add it here and I have my youtube channel I’m gonna add also Again, you just need one to adhere, or it could be a YouTube channel you could also create one But like I said make sure you’re gonna get one Cell or multiple cells in that first hundred eighty days to qualify, so let me go ahead and press next here It says or any of the websites are mobile apps listed here director for children under 13 That’s a note for me in this case. I’m gonna press confirm So now it says to create an associate store ID so if you go over the instructions here It says it could be your website – 20 for Example that could be a store ID so let me go ahead and type in a store ID So I’m just typing the name of my store, and he’ll add the numbers for me by itself I have the websites if you have mobile apps list them here What is your website about how to video platform and? What’s the best topics that describes your website so go ahead and choose from this list and then it asked you What are the things you want to sell on Amazon? This is not that important? You can sell many things, but go ahead and choose appropriately here I’m gonna choose computer and office and electronics in this case what type is your website or mobile app I’m gonna put contents website, and my secondary is a shopping engine and how do you drive traffic to the website so the ways I do it is through social network and Through blogs and SEO I’m gonna go down. How do you utilize your website and have to generate income? So in this case if you have any others. I’m gonna do Amazon associate. This is what I’m actually signing up for here How do you usually build links I use WordPress so that’s content management system how many? Unique visitors do you get per month? I’m just gonna put the minimum here actually under 500 is the minimum But I’m already close to 5,000. I’m gonna click that and what’s the primary reason? I’m joining the Amazon to monetize my site How’d you hear about us? I’m gonna choose Ward amount and go ahead and go through the security here I’m gonna type this in and press next It’s gonna verify your identity so it’s gonna give you a phone call so let me type in my number and get that call We verified your PIN. Please return to amazon.com to complete your registration Okay that completed my registration. I’ll just do this checkmark here, and I’m gonna press finish Now it says. Thank you for applying for amazon.com associate program Here’s my unique ID so this is the idea that’s gonna identify me on Amazon And it says enter payment and tax information you could do that now or later. This is straightforward If you’re a US citizen you need your Social Security, or if you’re a business you need your taxi i-n number I’m gonna set that up later for that side You’re paid you could get paid through a gift card or your bank account. You could get paid via a check and Now you’re set up with your Amazon program. It’s gonna send you a reminder to set up your tax information But right now. I’m gonna focus on making the sells because in the next 180 days I want to definitely make multiple cells so then I don’t get rejected by the program and the way you do this now once you’re at this point is if you look up a keyword or What you’re looking to sell so let’s do iPhone X Charger for example if that’s what I wanted to have an affiliate link for I could go ahead and search for that and I could See the results that it gives me So let’s say, this is the one I wanted to sell I could press get link here Or I could do this drop down and it’ll give me the link and this is the link I could go ahead and put on my website or On my youtube channel or wherever I want to do that affiliate or you could shorten it and this is the link which is much nicer to create so and Then you could go ahead and copy and paste that or you could build a link which allows you to use Images and things like that so if I wanted to present it this way on my website I can with text an image option or with the image only option or with the text only option And this is the URL I basically have to take this snippet and put it on where I want to put it so this is great for web sites The URL link the shortened URL link was great for Instagram and social media anyway I hope this gets you started with the Amazon affiliate program like I said before I make tech Tutorials just like this one that are easy to follow five times a week And I really hope you subscribe to this channel, and I see you on the next video.

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. very informative thanks! Do you have a video on how to market the different kinds of Amazon promo codes? Where and how can I get single use codes for products, or multi-use codes? Do I need to contact / create a relationship with the seller of an item i am interested in marketing? I am familiar with a couple of websites which provide multi use codes for items listed on amazon.

  6. HELP!!! It won't let me pass to the third step (I am stuck on the Website and mobile app). I don't know what is wrong! Thank you!

  7. I am having a big problem with the verification call sign up step. my problem is that they dont call me. It usually tells me that "we are sorry, but there was a problem while we are trying to call you. try again in a few minutes.

  8. Howfinity, I just did it how you explain in this video and Booommm! I just started to post links of Amazon in my videos. Thank you

  9. has anyone had an issue with the phone call? It keeps saying "Sorry, we are having difficulties in completing the verification. I am using a US number and the call does go thru however, after I put in the code, nothing happens. Any suggestions? Maybe the call needs to be during business hours?

  10. Unfortunately you have to pay a large fee for a tin if you don't have one, so I guess it costs quite a bit to start this,

  11. I wish I had watched this video before, completely overlooked the "qualified sales & having enough traffic part"…unless I post a super jaw dropping enlightening video in the next few days, I see myself reapplying for the program : /

  12. I have a question: say like if i already have an account and sign up to become amazon affiliate but dont get saled and they kick me out will my amazon account that I already had get deleted? And can you re-sign up to become amazon affiliate again?

    Thanks

  18. Hello man thank you for the video. I would like to ask about international links for amazon how can you do that? You said you have to apply one by one to all other regions? this is how it works? Thank you 🙏🙂

  20. ok…. So, once you're in the Affiliate Program and you'd like to use YouTube Videos to feature products do you use your YouTube HOME PAGE or the individual You Tube video page of each product?

    Absolutely no one is being specific about this in the last hour of videos on this subject that I've watched.

  21. Hey, for some reason they keep denying my application, I applied twice already made more than 3 sales within a month and they say they can't approve me because I don't own the website I'm using which is YouTube. Any suggestions?

  26. Smashing video, peeps entering into the amazon associates program really need to watch this. The sweetest advice I ever got for my Amazon affiliate websites was to just make sure my websites Amazon links definitely worked. They just often tend to stop working over time, sellers stop selling stuff, things go out of stock and so on. Theres some pretty good Amazon link checkers with no cost trials, just Google it. The one I used detected 165 links to unavailable or out of stock items. I hate to think what commission that cost my business over the last few months 🙁

    My websites in the new mums niche but most niches are the same so here are some other good bits of advice, look at increasing SERP and Amazon CTR, boosting content SEO, gaining backlinks to your site, and build an email list from the start, its traffic on tap then.

    And build a respected brand, not just a generic review website. When people come to your site first because they trust you that's free high converting web traffic.

    And it goes without saying, taking notice of marketing experts just like you as well 😉

    But the one tip that costs literally nothing… at any point…

    Be relentless, don't give up. Making good money with Amazon takes time but you'll get there if you put the work in 🙂

    Anyhow amazing video, you have earned another sub here. Don't stop making these fantastic vids, please!

  27. I really want to do this but the only issue is, when people click on your affiliate link (let’s say you inserted it into Instagram stories) … A potential buyer will browse, click on an item to buy, but will be prompted “Sign In” to their account. … Most people will just memorize the item name, exit Instagram and open their Amazon app that is already signed in. They will especially do this if they buy through Amazon Smile to contribute a % toward their favorite charity.

  28. During my automated call to verify the PIN, I took too long trying to get it onto speaker mode and by the time I started entering the PIN it was like "sorry, we couldn't detect your response" or something, then it said to try again in one minute. I tried again too soon, twice, and now it's locked me out for an hour. FML.

  29. Thank you so much, I subbed. This was clear and easy to follow. I could not find this info anywhere luckily I found your channel 🙂

  30. Hey. Just wondering how you went about reapplying for the program after you got kicked out? I did the same thing with my channel. Whoops

  31. I subscribe and allow the add to run. waoo I cant belive I finally have my own amazon affiliate link, thank you thank you

  32. Hi, Just a the video I needed!.. THANK YOU! I got to sign up with amazon affiliate account but if I want to start making money I have to provide tax information…? Now if that comes into it there's very little point because the tax system In Ireland I'd need to be earning a certain amount and if not I have to pay a tax fee at the end of the tax year which can be costly whether xor not I make money… So is there a way round this??? Do I need to setup tax in order to continue??

  33. Good advice i never heard before. So i think will link as a non-affilliate. What's difference between the 2 url's, is it the same with a extra identifier ?
