    was using it for a couple months and what I did was put the amazon links up on a website that would be viewed more i figured they don't give a fk where the sales come from as long as they get sales.. made about 75$ its 100$ to cashout and today i find they disabled my account with this email.. One of my accounts is a quotes nitch but it's so damn hard to get any amazon sales through a quotes nitch so i used one revolved around college websites.. Thx for jewing me out of 75$ don't use it i figured amazon being so reputable that they wouldn't be so shady like this.
    Hello,

    As of June 1, 2013 well only approve Facebook.com &quotFan Pages&quot and/or &quotVerified&quot Twitter.com pages in the Associates program. All other social network sites are not eligible to add Associate links, or for use to create an Associates Account.

    In reviewing your website, we noticed that youve applied with a social network website. At this time, were unable to approve your application and have closed the account under which you had been temporarily approved and that approval has now ended.

    Thank you for your interest in Amazon.com Associates.

    You were not fully approved in the first place, and they stated it clearly, only twitter/facebook is accepted.
    I guess you should have hidden your traffic source or something.

    It`s more like 1800+ with 4% commission but they do care where the traffic is coming. You must have a site according to their terms and you can`t spam the affiliate links. Drive traffic to your site which is following Amazon terms and you`re ok (or show to Amazon what they want and do real Blackhat).

    Cheers
