Hey Jamie, it's Ivan! I tried to find some solution to your problem, but I failed. This is something that sounds serious and my BEST ADVICE is to go ahead and send a private message to Kyle or Carson. I'm 100% sure they know what might be the course of your problem. After all, guys have over 15 years of experience with affiliate marketing.

Hi, I had a look at your post using your link.

Then clicked through to Amazon to check the link from your site:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F9391XK/

This is the tag: (it's in the link above)

tag=cbdoil20-20

This is your tag and it looks correct in your link (see above) which I got from your website after clicking through from your 'Hemp Go Green 100% Hemp Canvas Heavy Duty Reusable Shopping Bag' widget.

However you do not have any 'Affiliate Disclosure' that is specific to 'Amazon' in your article /post, neither do you have it in your 'Affiliate Disclosure' page on your website.

There are templates you can use for your Affiliate Disclosure page in WA here…https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/content/create/6

Also, include this page at the header level of your website not only the footer - I spent a few minutes trying to locate this information before I found it in the footer on your site.

Again, place the Amazon Affiliate Disclosure and ANY affiliate disclosure where the reader can see it clearly in the article/post itself - most affiliate networks and programmes are strict about this as they have to comply with the FTC requirements.

You fulfil your part as an affiliate by also complying with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and their new rules for Disclosure Compliance by placing this disclosure on your disclosure page AND in your articles/posts.

See my Amazon Affiliate Disclosure at the top of one of my posts, for example:

affiliatemasterz.com/best-books-for-motivation-and-success/

This is another one of my posts where I show my Affiliate Disclosure for Bluehost also at the top of my post:

https://affiliatemasterz.com/how-to-start-your-own-blog-site/

I hope this helps!

Hi - as far as I am aware, the tag is your store ID, for example, xxxx-20 or xxxx-21. However, if you are taking your link from the Site Stripe bar, it should automatically have your ID embedded in it.

Were you perhaps using a link shortener? That is not allowed. It has to be clear that your link leads to Amazon.

Thanks for the reply... no, I don't even know how to use a link shortener lol I log in my affiliate account, do a search and copy the link and put it in my post. I recently put some ads here https://cbdoilrealreviews.com/hemp-fun-facts/

i see the 20 in the link that launches.... not sure what they are looking for....
Thanks so much.

Hi - yes, your links look ok to me. I wonder if they have sent you the wrong reason for rejection, as you are actually breaking a couple of their other rules. You are not allowed to mention the price of an Amazon product, and your Affiliate Disclosure doesn't meet their requirements. Have you only got this one website, and this is the one listed in your Amazon account? Did you previously have a siterubix version of your website, and that is the one in your Amazon account?
