    I’ve been an Amazon Affiliate before, but I kept getting kicked off the program. The main reason for this is that I just didn’t have enough traffic at the time to remain on it. I have more traffic now, but I’m still not sure if it’s enough for them. I’ll have to look into it further to be sure. In any case, I would like to jump in there again at some point and it’s good to see some more information about it. Thanks for sharing!

    That’s awesome, is there a certain amount that you have to “sale” every month to stay active or stay on their affiliate list? Also, is there a limit on how much do you need to earn before you get paid? 
    I have been considering joining amazon associates, but I have been hesitant because I am not sure if my site is quite ready.

      Hi Mattie,

      Thanks for reading my blog and providing some feed backs. I’m sorry for the late reply. 

      So far, i’m not aware of any sales target by Amazon for their affiliates in order for them to stay active neither do i know of any sales limit before you get paid. But, what i do know is they will accept you as an associate if you meet their criteria and you have good contents on your website. Having said that, there is no harm in trying and that is the only way to know.

      All the best.
