    So I applied for an Amazon Associates account and was denied. The reason being my website. The method I am trying to use doesn't involve a website, so I quickly made one in Blogger and ripped content off another site. Could this be the reason I was denied? Any tips when re applying?

    EDIT: Also as Amazon doesn't allow direct traffic, is their any way around this other than using a landing page?

    What state do you live in (if in the US)? Amazon doesn't allow affiliates from certain states. I don't know of many people who get rejected because of a bad website. They're pretty lenient on things like that.

    Where are you trying to send direct traffic from? They do allow direct traffic from some sites (youtube, tumblr) but not from others (twitter, google). There are ways around it but they all put your account at risk.

    Hi everyone,

    I really need some help - I can't post a new threat on here yet. So I have been doing Amazon Associates, and I have been doing really well, but I don't know if I'm breaking TOS. So here is my method - I pick a product, such as Kindles, BITLY the URL to amzn.to then I Google Kindle and go to the news tab, and go through articles on different sites and post a comment with my affiliate link. I've sold over 30 kindles this month and a bunch of other products - am I breaking TOS? Has anybody done this before? Some help would be appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    usually you could get accepted in amazon associate with out much hassile but you need to submit a website, if they are not accepting try purchase a .info domain and then do get one review rewritten and apply for amazon associate you will definitely get accepted, i don't know why you got denied as when i started associate i used a blogger blog to get accepted But the content was 100% original, when you get a domain try to stay away domain name that contain form amazon trademark and there product like kindle they will reject you.

    yes that is against amazon TOS. I suggest you stop if you don't want to get banned or reject payment.
