So…I shared about my $2.95 commission from being an Amazon Associate…and was pretty happy…and then it all came crashing down when a couple of hours later, Amazon sent me an email stating they're revoking my associate status.
I was dumbfounded (though I tried to play it cool with my wife), and it bothered me a little. I dropped them an email saying:
Hi Amazon Associates
I'm sorry to hear that – can you advise me which parts are the parts that has unapproved use of Amazon.com trademarked words, images, or reviews?Do let me know so I know how to amend/correct and update them accordingly, please advise, thanks
All sorts of stuff ran through my head (including walking away/diversifying from Amazon), trying to trace back what I could have done wrong, and it did bother me. But I decided to sleep on it, and when I work up the next day, I got this email from them:
This is Lilliy with the Amazon Associates team. I hope you're doing well today.

We'd appreciate your feedback. Please use the links below to tell us about your experience today.
Whew! It was reinstated and everything was restored. Gosh. That was scary.
What about yourself?
If you’re a student, stay at home mum (SAHM), working full time or part time, or retired: you must build an online business on the side. Please don’t quit your job yet, build it on the side until it’s profitable enough to replace your salary, then you have more options.
It’s not a luxury but truly a necessity for your future.
I’ve built multiple businesses (and lost multiple too) and I can tell you frankly that building a business on the internet is the cheapest/most cost-effective way to business. There are thousands of people who do so sharing on topics that they’re passionate about (like how NigelChua.com shares on passive income and online business, which is my passion…for years now).
I know I am making some money online (see my income reports), and I know my financial future is getting better and better. But it is not easy, and takes a lot of time to learn and apply but I am building my passive income internet businesses that will work for me day in, day out; serving readers and customers profitably and delivering value 24/7.
