    I just got myself banned from Amazon (right on payout day - what a coincidence) and I have lost a substantial amount of money. I'm not going to start cryng or attributing blame, what's done is done. Time to move on.

    I run a Science Fiction fan site, so my question is: what affiliate sytem should I use now? I'd be most grateful for any ideas you may have.

    Kind regards,

    James :)

    Try ebay, when I go banned from amazon I went over to ebay and use it a lot. I use easybay pro plugin
    You can add live, auto updating auctions to posts, pages and widgets, set and forget.

    I got banned like 4 times before I gave up on them. They took my $4xxx in total.
    I am still thinking to try once again coz nothing else work better for my traffic, I tried ebay and CJ and both are shit.

    Btw, what was the reason of ban?

    Ebay was bad? In my experience they're nicer and give a higher commission than amazon! :O

    I have used it before, but you need to be dealing with bulk buyers or you're going to be getting pennies >.<

    Alibaba or Aliexpress? Seemed to me like express wasn't wholesale?

    It's not just about the commission %, it's about the product availability, price, and trust which is important to convert your clicks into sales.
    Don't just think as an affiliate.

    Aliexpress is like the amazon of alibaba isn't is, so if you refer a dropshipper you're in for a treat

    Ok sure thing :) I think they're starting to do better with those things as they have their own marketplace like amazon, it's not just used goods like it used to be >.<

    Do you need a Paypal account to become an affiliate?
