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:
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:
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!
