    Hi Guys,

    I received an email from Amazon Affiliates today. They told me that my account is closed due to violation of TOS. The reason given is displaying their customer?s review in a manner that is not allowed.

    What I did on my websites was I quoted a few Amazon customers? reviews (few sentences) and with a ?read more? link with my affiliate link.
    I did not aware that this is not allowed in their TOS. When I first started IM, I read some ebooks (can?t remember the names) and follow exactly the tutorials given. Quoting Amazon customers? review is one of the suggestions from the ebook. I don?t blame anyone but myself. I should have been more careful in my learning.

    I am sharing this with those who are doing Amazon affiliate. Hopefully you guys do not make the same mistake as I did.

    What I am planning to do is


    1. Remove all Amazon customers reviews on my websites
    2. Email Amazon affiliate customer service team for appeal. Hopefully they are willing to take a look and reinstate my account.

    If there?s anyone with similar experience, I would appreciate your advices on how to get back my amazon affiliate account. Thank you very much.

    No problem mate. It's not a nice feeling getting account closed. Hopefully my thread will help some people.

    Indeed, especially when your account already earned good amount of commission. I dislike that feeling. Hopefully, you can get back your associate acc soon.
