Well this has not happened yet, but curious!!!

What will happen to my affiliate earned commision.

Suppose I have $300 in my account that has been earned! What will happen to it.

I know everyone will tell that you will not get any return. But, reply only if you have experienced it.

Yep if you violate their terms it’s their legal ticket to keeping all your earnings. Seems unethical as fck though, but then again, they are a monster company so I would expect nothing less.

Because Amazon could at any point, change their TOS, as they clearly state, without any prior notice. I wouldn't put it past them one bit.

Inside your Affiliate account, there is a "contact us" button. You can chat them up, as there is a chat option. That's the fastest way to talk to them why your account is on hold/banned. You need to sync your time with them, as their chat time is on PST.

As a few others have stated, there are two levels of customer service for affiliates. The first level is the one you can get a hold of via chat. And I can tell you first hand they are trained monkeys who don’t know shit about their own program except to regurgitate bs answers for your questions. Zero insight.

The second level support you cannot talk with. If they feel like talking with you, then they will contact you. That’s usually when they hand down a ban and tell you your account has been deleted and they always point out there is no way for them to review your account once it’s been removed from their system.

@waterworks, well if that's the case, why is Amazon still the no.1 affiliate program? Whether you believe it or not, but I have seen more services on building Amz affiliate sites, than anything else.

I have tried chatting them twice -- first was about why I was not credited with the ordered items, and second was why my dashboard says $0, when I got lots of referred orders within that month -- both are helpful; first issue answered me correctly, 2nd issue was a bug so they send a ticket to their tech dpt to solve it.

If you got banned, try the chat first and ask why. If chat doesn't work, try email. If both doesn't work, call them up. I believe they have phone number somewhere.

Amazon banns random accounts to cut on their outcomes
It happend to me 3 years ago, and there was tons of people here who followed their TOS and got banned with no reason.
I've been working 100% legit with them and followed all their TOS, and after 1 year they've decided to suspend my account and all my holding funds (it was a lot) went back to their wallet.
New and advanced affiliate alike, don't ever waste your time promoting Amazon affiliate program, as they will probably bann you, if not today so in a few months or years, and you are going to lose a lot of money.
Open your own Shoppify e-commerce store instead. It's 10 times safer and profitable.

Thank you for all your responses....
Yes I have not be banned from Amazon.
The reason to make this thread is - that I have heard many of them getting their account banned without any reason.

amazon will not ban your account without reason and if you follow their rules you will be fine, in most cases people who get banned tried to cheat something and now talk crap about their affiliate program which is one of the best in world. so stick with the rules

I got banned for not applying a critical questionnaire they asked for, but I received my earnings which was LESS than the threshold.
Another account I closed it my self to receive the earnings which was less than the threshold of payment as well.
