It was bound to happen sooner or later. More and more states are leaning towards the same legislation.
Sounds like earners in Missouri need to set up a virtual address in Delaware + incorporate and continue business as usual.
Well... I live very close to another state. hopefully I can contact them so I can change my address over to the other residency I have family in, I just hope it's not the next state to pass a similar bill...
Guess amazon.com would only be relevant to international sellers in the near future.
damn thats crazy! I respect amazon for standing up to the govt. though
I'm not sure punishing affiliates is really the best way to stand up to the government, though. Fortunately, the two biggest cities in Missouri border other states. I'm in St. Louis, so I'm sure there is some sort of way around this, although I think it's incredibly stupid.
So disheartening, move on, so many opportunities out there.
Welcome to the club, Colorado got hit a while back ago also, vigilink was an ok alternative till amazon caught up with them and told them to honor there rules and not let banned states participate. linkshare and cj are the next best options
So, no problem. Use Viglink and continue to earn with Amazon.
That's not going to work.. vigilink sent out an email about 2 months ago saying amazon wanted them to comply with their policies of keeping banned states out, so they will disable amazon links if your in one of the banned states
How about using skimlinks? There's nothing that I've read that says they don't allow publishers in Amazon's banned states to publish their amazon affiliated links. I'm not entirely sure on that though.
