    I have made quite a bit of money the first month I joined Amazon. Almost $600. I took it off of a method from here, and I have heard of this method leading to bans however.

    With that being said, the $600 I made in June is now in my unpaid balance. If I do end up catching the ban hammer before that is given too me, will I eventually end up getting my pay out? Or will I get squat?

    Thanks

    Which method thread are you talking about?

    If it shows up in unpaid balance, you can be sure that it'll reach your pocket.

    You'll get nothing if they ban you with you cash still unpaid. What are you doing that could result in an Amazon ban?

    the thread actually got taken down, but I would put my affiliate link into my reviews discreetly. The problem would be amazon looking and seeing that the purchases are not being referred by another website.

    I don't see why they'd take your account down if you're sending them traffic through your reviews. Amazon works similar to the Google Adsense ie., the clicks shouldn't have to be generated from the website/blog they approved while reviewing your application. As long as the reviews are legit, your account will stay up just fine.

    he already replied that the thread is deleted. :p

    I hope you get paid, using reviews is not something amazon doesn't allow. :)

    If you put your aff link to reviews on Amazon.com it will lead to ban.

    Cheers

    I saw a thread a while back about leaving a negative review on a popular product and pointing people to an affiliate link for an alternative product.

    Seems like Amazon could ban you if they caught wind of what you're up to, since it violates the part of their TOS where you must let the potential buyer know that you're an affiliate of amazon.

    The question he asked was if he would get the money on his unpaid balance OR not... I want to know the answer myself, anyone have trusted info about that?

    I did not get the ban and received my $959 i made in 3 months! I am now continuing after being on the low to ensure I would receive those payments. Lets see how much I can make in the month of October! 3 days into coming back I already made $30 so this is great!
