Introduction

Making money from Amazon Associates program can very lucrative and I know of a lot of affiliates that are making more than $10 000 pm. But just imagine you wake up one morning and receiving a mail from Amazon telling you that your account is being terminated.

I think this can send shivers down anyone's spine if Amazon is your only source of income. The good thing is that you can also avoid this by NOT doing a short list of very simple things.

Let's get right to it.

Everybody really needs to read this post so they can recognize how important it is to follow Amazon's (as well as other companies) affiliate policy.

I'm very glad I did and I will make adjustments accordingly.

Thanks for a very informative post!

I found out this week my Amazon Affiliate links were broken, no wonder I had no sales. Please check your affiliate links to make sure they actually work now if you are having no Amazon Sales.
I blogged about it on my blog.

My account just got banned!

I am not in my best place....

I received this in my e-mail:

Thank you for your interest in the Amazon Associates Program.

We have completed our review of your application to the Amazon Associates Program, which included a visit to the website where you planned to create links to our store.

We found you listed the URL for your website as https://mytoddler.org. Your website includes the unapproved use of http://Amazon.com trademarked words, images, or reviews.

We do not allow the use of URLs, trademarks, logos, etc. that include words that are trademarked by http://Amazon.com LLC. This includes variations or misspellings of any trademarked words. We are therefore unable to approve your application. Accordingly, we have closed the account under which you had been temporarily approved and that approval has now ended.

If your website has been further developed and now contains appropriate content, you are welcome to submit another application by using the following URL:

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/join

Please review our Operating Agreement for further details:

We hope to see you again.

******GOING TO CALL THEM TOMORROW!

If anyone has advice please help!!!!

I am sorry to hear. I would delete this article.

https://mytoddler.org/whats-the-best-tablet-for-kids.

You also need to remove the price at the starting summary of your article and please put an affiliate disclaimer on your website.

Thank you for the help, Just so you know they said the only problem that I had was that I was copying their images without an Amazon API sign up. They said that I can no longer use that login and that I need to Creat a different one!

you can simply re-apply I believe. It just means you get a new ID for all the links you used on your pages.

Do you need to re-apply with a different email address too? In that case you make a different account on your siteEmail system.

But yes, fix stuff up first of all. I might have a similar problem now that I think of it.
