Complaint Review: Amazon Affiliate Program -
Amazon Affiliate Program Amazon Associates Program Amazon Affiliate Program Amazon Affiliates Amazon does NOT pay earnings - Deletes accounts for NO reason!
I had been an affiliate with Amazon for YEARS from early on when I started blogging. I always followed their guidelines and reached out whenever I had questions. About a year ago (give or take at this point) I received a notice from Amazon that I was removed from their affiliate program for "violating their guidelines" and to correct the issues to avoid the account closure, but it was not clear nor did it state exactly WHY or WHAT I did.
I responded and asked for an explanation several times and NEVER received a response back. About a month later, after NO response from them (via both responding to the email and contacting them through the contact form on the Amazon associates dashboard, I got the official notice of the closure to my affiliate account. Again, no clear explanation.
To my knowledge, I never actually violated their terms. I always left the disclosures, etc. If I did actually violate their terms, as they claim, why would they never respond to my reply? It comes across as a complete setup to get free advertising then using a false claim to not have to pay people. I've heard of this happening to quite a few others as well. Amazon has proven over the years to be a dishonest company and clearly doesn't treat it's employees nor affiliates well. Everyone is just another number to them.
