I recently wrote my first hub and opened an amazon associates account. I got a response saying the following..... "Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept your application. Upon review, I noticed you supplied the popular site www.hubpages.com as your registered URL. Your application and account have been rejected and closed.
We need a complete and valid URL for the website where you intend to display links to Amazon.com before we can process an application."
Does everyone who advertises amazon products have their OWN website too or am i missing something?? Please help as I am all geared up to be a hubber but have fallen at the first hurdle!! I notice the amazon books I listed on my hub came up alright so I am completely confused.
No-one's answered so I'm only trying to help.
I don't think the link the want is the general hubpages address, ,but your user name URL? The one at the top of your profile page?
Try submitting the actual URL of one of your published hubs. If that doesn't work, I would suggest starting a free Blogger blog, adding some solid content over a few days and submitting that URL for approval.
Once approved you will be able to use your Amazon Associates ID across other sites and platforms such as Hubpages.
Thank-you both for your replies, perhaps my behind-the-scenes admin needs some attention. I shall try opening an account again next week with your suggestions. Fingers crossed.
There is a specific way to do this, I will get back to you in a copule of minutes when I find the page you need!
Got it, it is your profile URL, give this a read

I had an Amazon Associate's account for almost just as long as I've had my Hubpages account. While I never really earned much on it, I still appreciated the little income I would get, especially around Halloween. I then tried to sign up for the Hubpages Amazon program, but after trying it for a...

Okay, I've said this numerous times in numerous posts recently, because it's true, but I've recently come back to HP after a very long absence and have discovered a lot of changes. One change that has nothing to do with HP, other than being somewhat of an income source, was that my...
