    Hello

    I'm running a blackhat website and I'm getting a conversion ratio of about .59%. Is this acceptable for Amazons Affiliate Program?

    I'm aware that low percentages can get you banned from a network, but I still don't think is too bad of a conversion rate considering it's only a 24 hour cookie.

    Amazon doesn't care if you have low conversions, only if the traffic is legit and you're not breaking their ToS. They only pay you when there is a sale.

    Amazon is good at finding people doing BH with them... and kicking them out the door.

    I wouldn't risk it

    Seeing how my current conversion rate is between 60%-90%, I wouldn't dream of having such a low rate. It's just asking for a personal review.

    How long have you been below 1% for?

    well I get traffic that sometimes converts even less than 1%, it's targeted and whitehat, it's just because it's from youtube :) (probably) never had any troubles, but it's not really a lot of money

    Well, even before I started doing BH stuff, I've had a conversion rate of about 2% and they never asked questions. I didn't think a 1.5% difference would matter much, but, I'm just checking the community for some feedback.

    Thanks everyone!

    Why would you even bother with a website if your conversion is 0.5%? That's really poor. My conversion with Amazon is 25%.

    Because it's free, automated traffic I'm bringing in.

    It took me literally about 10 minutes to set up and I see about 2,000 visitors to my affiliate link a day making about ~$100 in commissions/day.

    That's why I "bother"

    i am reading this correctly? how did you come up with a conversion rate of more than a 100%? each visitor buys 2 or more products?
