    I keep getting my application denied from Amazon associates and idk what I'm doing wrong. This is the button I'm using, which isn't Amazon trademarked as far as I know. The images I'm using are taken directly off the item's sales page, is that wrong? I have a disclaimer in my About for using Amazon. I'm getting real tired of having to re-do every single affiliate link I have.

    What reason are they giving you?
    I would say it could definitely be the button - there are plenty of examples of them having rejected an application due to a button being to similar to theirs.

    Either use a different button colour so it doesn't look at all like amazons, or use the ones they provide.

    I don't think you are allowed to use sales page images, they are amazon copyrights

    Agreed; if the button is an issue, just change it. Google images is your friend. ;-)

    100% the buttons. I went through the same thing, until I used a API to change the product links - times failed until I realized. Make your own button, make it green.

    As above, you need to make your buttons look less like the Amazon colours.
