    I received this email from amazon yesterday


    the trademark bidding wasnt intentional and i had other ppc campaigns i was doing with amazon products and were also converting well and i was wondering if anyone has ever got this email and still gotten paid because normally when amazon bans affiliates they say you will not receive futhur payment but i didnt get that and i have contacted them that the trademark bidding wasnt intentional and the keywords i was using probably triggered the keywords and they also said in the email that they warned me and i failed to comply but i didnt get any email from amazon saying i was trademark bidding so i was wondering if anyone has ever gotten in this situation before and got paid and can you let me know what you think.

    thanks and would be looking forward to replies.

    So were you using Amazon related keywords, or just product name keywords like "nintendo" or "playstation"?

    I can see how they would get pissed off with "kindle"

    Long Live Affiliate Programs.

    We give our leg and arm and years for their wealth and our living.

    For them it takes only a pre-made email template to through off us.

    Anyway thanks for the following information particularly.

    To be more helpful can you reveal the term "xxxxxxxxx". Confidential then NO PROBLEM.

    All the best for you future activities. Don't give up just hit hard.
