    Just something that you might have missed:

    Are you sure that you've send all your social media traffic to your website and not straight to Amazon. Because you can't send traffic straight to Amazon from sites that you don't own or control.

    The second reason can be that maybe you've put a text link or image link in the top of your post above the fold then what happens is the RSS feed post that link to your social accounts, what happens is people click the link then it takes them straight to amazon bypassing your website.

    Well just something I've read on Amazon Associates forum about link placement.

    Isn't there also a minimum 1% conversation rate?
    If you have lesser than 1% conversation rate it could mean you use spam and they close your account.

    Thank you so much. I have been doing it wrongly with the images but I don't input price just dollar symbol.

    Can you advice me on how to get the image live from them into my site?

    hi there

    you can use amazon site stripe API for the images generation
    regarding pricing u can also do that with API inter-linking
    theres some wordprss plugins that does the trick,e.g. easyazon etc.

    using $$ symbol is safe.

    Simply use their widgets. As simple it is. They also include pricing, etc. All updated through their servers in real time.
    Their tools are not visually outdated anymore and have a clean and nice design.

    Yip that letter they've send you clearly shows some inappropiate or inflated clicks to Amazon. Anyone would get suspicious if over a few days clicks went from 5 a day to 100.

    But did you even send all the information they've ask you?
    And if you've even send half the information then they probaly thought you are hiding some info and that's the reason you've got banned.

    Maybe find a new host and set up with them to refer customers to. I would reach out to a few different companies and let them know what kind of business you can bring there way and see what kind of deal you can get worked out that way.
