So to become an Amazon Associate first thing you wanna do is head over to– See Screenshots below, this is how you know you’ve arrived on the correct page.

Sign in or Create account.

If you already have an account with Amazon, you can just log in. This will list the Associates Account under your existing Amazon account;. Want them separate? Scroll down to the “Create a new Amazon account” “Join Associates.”

Create Your Amazon Associates Account


Simply enter the requested information to create your Amazon Associates account.
Enter your information. Simple and quick form.  Enter your name email and password and click the yellow “Create your Amazon Account button. Turn on your push notifications people! 😉


Create a separate email account for Your Business. Frequent is common and you’ll need the organization. It also prevents a human error like missing an important update email, valuable newsletter, promotional info and so on. If you have one, great, if not consider putting one together.  A G-mail or MSN will do and are excellent choices to start with.

Website And Mobile App List

Now, on this page, is where you can send your websites and mobile apps. If the mobile app does not apply to you, don’t worry, you can still send the remaining information. The site, however, is a must at this point with Amazon.

Once you’ve put your websites/mobile apps, you’ll moved forward in the application process to this page, Profile.

Your Profile.

Here you will create a sub-id, this is what will be Amazons tracking method. You will also need to give some info on what exactly your site is about. Is it a blog, e-commerce, resource, etc.? Input more specific information about the channel (site) you are going to use for the promotions and affiliations with Amazon.


You’re not completely done just yet, but the first steps, your foundation paved. You’ve taken one of the best steps toward financial freedom. Congratulate yourself. You have Amazon Associates and all its programs and products at your fingertips.


As stated before, this is not a survey site. There isn’t anything “typical” or its subsidiaries. It is a good rule of thumb to take this opportunity as the business proposition that it is. Your chance to dominate space and be just as productive and successful with it. That being said the submission of your tax identification (if you have a TIN# you will be prompted to use that number) If not, your social security number will suffice. Don’t worry, once you’ve reached this last step in the sign-up, you have FULL ACCESS to Amazon Central 24/7!

Your Pay Preference

Select the payment method that best suits you. Your choices include:

  1. Receive payment via Amazon gift card. $10 least earnings.
  2. Provide bank information for direct deposit (this option is available for US Associates only) minimum $10 earnings
  3. The last but certainly not least method, pay by check. $100 minimum earning or select a custom amount of $100+

You have the option to complete this now or come back to it. I recommend completing it immediately that way you leave no room for human errors that you could have prevented, such as when life happens in an instant, and you forget
