    So... Got my Amazon Associates account banned.

    Plugin: Ninja Popups

    I am not a native English speaker and I have gone through Amazon TOS probably 100 times. I thought I can use the popup window if I don't force cookies to visitor's PC, and I was wrong.

    I feel like an idiot, but I'll just confess it. Amazon is my only source of income.

    Everything else was legit. Got the traffic via Google only, and I was making 5k+ per month.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Holy crap. I'm sorry to hear about your experience. I'm just getting started with Amazon, and your thread has definitely saved me from making the same mistake, so thanks. I hope someone is able to help you resolve your concerns, because $5k in monthly lost revenue is an ugly situation.

    Looking forward to seeing how you are able to recover from this situation. I would definitely reach out to Amazon and make a bid on telling them it was security flaw or issue, and seek reconsideration, but I have no experience with that and can't speak to its effectiveness.
