    Recently, I was rejected from Amazon Associates due to a trademark violation. Thinking it was due to my "Buy Now on Amazon" buttons that featured the Amazon logo, I deleted them. I then came to find out that you cannot host Amazon Product images on your website. I know one way around it is to take the images from Amazon using the HTML code; however, that is a pain in the ass to edit and properly fit on the webpage. I then attempted to use EasyAzon, but even when posting images via EasyAzon, I still get an image location such as https://i0.wp.com/websiteurl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/412xxxxxxxL-1.jpg?resize=474,500. Obviously showing that the image is still hosted via my website.

    Anyone have ideas on how to best get around this. I've already been rejected twice, and I am getting tired of replacing all the affiliate links on my website.

    Update: After removing the "Buy Now on Amazon" buttons that featured the Amazon logo, and the consumer comments I had used in some of my articles, my website was accepted, despite still utilizing Amazon's product images hosted on my website.
