    Hello :)

    my little Amazon Affiliate Website got rejected. Could anyone who have done Amazon Affiliate Website before take a look on my page and maybe tell me what i did wrong ? I would pm you the site if you wanna help me.

    Thats what they wrote me :
    We have completed our review of your application to the Amazon Associates Program, which included a visit to the website where you planned to create links to our store.

    We found you listed the URL for your web site as: xxxxxxx Your web site includes the unapproved use of Amazon.com trademarked words, images, or reviews.

    We do not allow the use of URLs, trademarks, logos, etc. that include words that are trademarked by Amazon.com LLC. This includes variations or misspellings of any trademarked words. We are therefore unable to approve your application. Accordingly, we have closed the account under which you had been temporarily approved and that approval has now ended.


    Thanks in advance guys

    You must of trod on their trademark somewhere. I suppose to get around it, you can create a dummy website, get it approved and then use the code on the site that got rejected. You do of course run the risk of getting an infraction/ban from Amazon (I guess).

    Be careful who you PM the site to, as some may decide the niche is good and profitable and go from there.

    Do you mention anything in your website about amazon? Probably it's the reason why they reject you.
    And surely you could change another website for the approval then change back to this website after approved.

    Thank you guys for the answers!

    The best solution for me in the end was it to get in contact with the support via live chat. The guy took his time to really help me but couldnt find anything and even his team couldnt find any violation so they resubmitted my application and i got my old account back and everything is fine now.

    Amazon affiliate is getting harder to join these days and after joining you may fall into one trap or the other which may make them ban your account.
