Over the last 9 days, All of my Amazon links stopped working?

They were created as Native Shopping Ads and Custom Ads.

It was ALL good for months, then GONE.

I was using the HTML code provided to get this done.

Reach out to Amazon and Support, and nobody has a clue.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I've always used SiteStripe for my Amazon links, there was a top banner for a long time talking about how they were ending support for those two ad types. It's unfortunate, but once you convert everything to the SiteStripe links and format it that way, I'm sure you'll feel great about it!

It sucks to have to go back and make those changes, but it's necessary. Cheers 🍻

Maybe you could create your own images on whatever format you were using beforehand? You can use any product image on Amazon and maybe create a similar process? Wish you the best in converting everything 👍

Thank you Colton

It was great because you could easily just place a 4 picture grid with a number of products or a list or even just 2 images

Now I will just have to settle for one

And that's not the pain point it's that I have to go through all the post on the site

Anyway it's a process.

How is that coming along? I also want to note, that you have to be careful using Amazon's logo within your content. There are some barriers when it comes to using Amazon's name, logo, and identity if you are going the route of creating your own "ads" to be similar to what they had before.

You can absolutely use any product image, but you should look into their affiliate policies within the dashboard of Amazon Associates and ensure that you aren't breaking any of their policies if/when you use your logo.

Hello Colton

Thanks for reaching out

Have been using Site strip but again it was not as good as the custom links

But at the end if the day Amazon will be a small part of my business

I appreciate you checking in

How are you?

The same thing happened to me; my custom links and native shopping ads. Strangely enough, the images stopped working as well.

So, I had to go back and edit all my links.

Nope. I used the product images on Amazon for the items I am promoting.

Your old links should work. The code is the same except for where you access your links. But yes, Site stripe is what to use for affiliate links now.
