    Hi,

    I just got an email from amazon associates saying that my account has come up for review and while it's been under review they have determined that i am not in compliance with the operating agreement and that my account has been closed. Apparently i have not complied with rule number 8 which states that you are not allowed to promote associate links on sites that you do not own.

    Truth be told i have been promoting there links on a forum to get sales in but i do also have two legitimate sites that i own that i am promoting there products on as well. Am seriously wounded because am in the process of building these two sites up and getting them ranked and now this has happened and i don't know what to do.

    I've just sent them an email acting confused as to why my account has been closed even though i know the reason why it's been closed, i just wanted some suggestions from you guys on what i should do if there is anything i can do?

    Thanks

    I don't understand a simple thing. Why do affliates try to violate the rules and think that they can escape? Don't you think that they know you or someone will rip them off. You are trying to (or tried to) con Amazon, where every click is tracked.

    The account is gone. Try some other affiliate platform. Or buy an account (which might be banned again when you change the affliate payee name.)
