    I was promoting several products as an affiliate with Clickbank and now my links are going to a page that says "affiliate is not allowed to promote this product". I made many sales with this vendor and I notice the vendor has the same thing with his other products when I promote it. Why in the beginning I was allowed to promote and make money and now I can't? I even tried with another hop link and it doesn't let me... so I know my main link isn't the problem. I did contact the vendor and waiting.

    Yes, wait the answer from the vendor. Ask him, why your CB ID blocked. And also what was your fault.

    Did you severely spam the links?
    On some vendor's pages I read that they don't link spamming their product because it makes the product look bad.
    Idk maybe that's the reason, just see what the vendor says.
    Good luck tho

    It sounds like the vendor either (1) got a spam complaint for your affiliate ID or (2) you were generating a high refund/chargeback rate (eg due to making claims about the product that the vendor did not do). In either case, wait until you hear from the vendor.

    Hey Mancar, I was promoting these products Via PPC and some social media. Could someone just report your hoplink to a vendor and it would automatically get blocked? I used a proxy and made up a new hop and it says this affiliate don't have access to promote. Will some vendors need to approve affiliates first... it just weird that I made sales and rarely any refunds that my link got blocked. Thanks

    Did you breach their TOS in any way? E.g. some vendors will specify that affiliates cannot bid on brand names (eg name of product) - I find such rules silly as I believe if you are selling through affiliates you should help them as much as possible and not hinder them, but some vendors do that.

    Also, some vendors do require that they approve you first ye. If this is the case, when you click the 'promote' button in the CB marketplace, it will say that you will need to be approved first (by contacting the vendor directly).

    What do you mean main link? Are you sending traffic to a review, a 301 redirect, or directly to your hoplink?

    If you do yoursi​te.​c​o​m/​herp-derp, which instantly turns into the hoplink, which changes to the sales page. I'm pretty sure that would keep people from reporting your hoplink, as well as add another layer to the origin so the vendor doesn't see Facebook spam or something.

    UPDATE:

    I just got the vendor to add me to their white-listed offers! No, I was not spamming just doing Bing PPC.

    I've been banned by vendor before, just create another CB account and go on, they ban you because you have high refund rate
