Got A Really Scary Email From Amazon

I was celebrating yesterday for making my first $2.95 on Amazon Associate for recommending products from Amazon (that article here) and just a couple of hours after that, I got this scary email from them:

Amazon Associates <associates@amazon.com>7:38 PM (10 hours ago)

Thank you for your interest in the Amazon Associates Program.

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: https://www.nigelchua.com. 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.

If your website has been further developed and now contains appropriate content, you are welcome to submit another application by using the following URL:

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/join

Please review our Operating Agreement for further details:

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/agreement

We hope to see you again..

Needless to say, I was pretty much shocked and stumped, and so I dropped them this email:

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

That was 10 hours ago - see what they say, fingers crossed!

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.
