Hi guys, I'm a newbie to the forum but not really a newbie in IM. So, I have two questions about the amazon affiliate program. 1 - I have an account that's a few years old and I went through 1 approval (had to change how I link in some places). When you add a new site, when do they check it (if at all)? 2 - At least one every 6 months or so, someone gives me a scare about accounts being shut down because of the images used - let's try and put this one to bed. * One one hand you have people that say that they prefer if you don't "waste" their bandwidth and use their api on all images. * Others are saying that you can ONLY use their api. Now, for the products I don't have I do use images that are the same as on the Amazon site - it doesn't mean that I use THEIR images - these are available on the manufacturers pages and with other retailers. Bottom line - is there a cause for concern here.
