Are you violating Amazon Policies? Outdated WA training could get you banned!
Online Entrepreneur Certification - Level 3 : Lesson 6 of 10
Kyle advocates that we include pricing in our review posts, but there is a problem with this.
Manual insertion of pricing for a product is not allowed!
In Amazon's policies: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/help/operating/policies...
You will see the following under:
2. Links on Your Site
(b) General Requirements Applicable to All Special Links
Here is a post I found online that talks about 9 things that will get you banned on Amazon, apprently, showing pricing is one of them! https://marketever.com/mistakes-get-banned-amazon-affiliate/
(I have no affiliation to this site, it is displayed for educational purposes)
They also made another disconcerting rule in another section of thier policies:
6. Content on your Site
(t) You will not display or otherwise use any of our customer reviews or
star ratings, in part or in whole, on your Site
Basically, you can include star ratings on your site, but they cannot claim to be Amazon's unless they are automatically being updated by Amazon's API!
Apparently, I have a lot of editing to do. I've been including star ratings saying they are Amazon's and manually placing pricing for a long time.
Also, if you don't believe me, do a search for the top ranking reviews on something, I think you will find most if not all of them comply with these policies.
FYI: I love Wealthy Affiliate,I don't want to see anything bad to Wealthy Affiliate or it's members, this post is meant to help you not get banned by Amazon!
I want to see WA's training updated to match Amazon's policies immediately.
I think many people could get banned very quickly if Amazon sees that they have outdated pricing or star ratings on their posts!
As listed in Amazon's policies, I also include this in my affiliate disclosure and disclaimer forms:
