This is just a quick video to let you know that I am, “Oh So Disappointed in the Amazon Affiliate Program.”
Out of the blue, I got an email from Amazon one day saying they were “terminating our affiliation” and I hated that. They said quote,
Effective today, Amazon is terminating your Associates account as well as the Operating Agreement that governs it (link below).
We reviewed your account as part of our ongoing monitoring of the Amazon Associates Program. During our review, we determined that you are not in compliance with the Operating Agreement, found here: <https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/help/operating/agreement>. The violations include the following:
-Purchases resulting from Special Links on your Site have been for personal use, resale, or commercial use, or have been made by your friends, relatives, employees, contractors, or business relations. “
None of this is true and if anything DID happen, I had no clue whatsoever what was going on wrong. So unfortunately I am no longer an affiliate with them and I feel really bad about that.I WILL still recommend products that I believe in and will work really hard to get you direct links to those making the products.
This came out of the blue for me, has it happened to anyone else? Chime in and let me know, share your story.
Hope you like the episode and if you do, subscribe, share the link and as always, I love to read your comments below. And to continue to follow the adventures, you can find me online at:
