    I had good success with Amazon in the past 2 months but recently I got banned because I send visitors directly to Amazon site.
    The thing is that I didn't notice that the Amazon script interferes with my Ajax call and launches my call and a popup with Amazon search because adb blocked the popup...(this finally explained the low conversion rate)
    I exchanged some mails with them but they don't understand that wasn't intentional.

    Any advice how can I get my account back or any had a similar problem?

    Here is the Ajax call code:
    Code:
    $(function() {
      $('form#inputForm').submit(function(event) {
        event.preventDefault(); // Prevent the form from submitting via the browser
        event.stopPropagation(); // Prevent the form from propagation via the browser
    
        $.ajax({
          ...
        })
      })
    })
    
    And the Amazon code is the native ads. Every native add I tried got me the same result.

    Unfortunately, you might not get your account back. It is against their policy to send visitors directly to them.
    Keep emailing them (google all their responsive email addresses) and you might be lucky to get in touch with someone who will reason with you.
