    Quick points:

    Right now this is for India and some people from Italy as well are saying they got this message.

    I hope this won't happen in USA :)

    I can confirm this is real. Amazon isn't paying us anymore and serving only the essential items.

    Remove affiliate links, or a better way: Go direct affiliate with the product creator @ 30%+ instead of Amazons 3%.

    Not seen this for US, Canada or UK. Checked on Amazon and my email. Either this is a hoax (@Jeepy have you checked the email headers?), or is not targeted at my markets...yet.

    Amazon are so selfish!! They only care about them selves.
    Let us remove all affiliate links and create affiliation links directly from producers...

    "ensuring safety of our associates" by asking them to stop traffic which they built after a lot of time, money and energy, that is called Bull Shit...

    For those who got the message: did you stopped sending them traffic? If you still are sending visitors do you receive any orders? Maybe they will just pause the orders and ship them later?

    i am not even selling on amazon, but no other way to put it, that's crazy!

    Flushing years / months of hard work down the toilet in one email?

    That's the one thing i hate in IM, being dependent on those traffic sources, or methods that might get slapped, even if you're 100% whitehat.

    Essentially building your own list is the only way to cut the ropes, but that takes time and hard work, specially from scratch.

    You will also still be depended on said "sources" to build it in the first place.

    I can confirm, this is in Amazon India. The amazon.in website now only show essential items for delivery
