Banned From Amazon’s Associates. Now what?
If you are on this page, you are part of the ones that got Amazon banned. Same as you, this huge company convinced me that they are full of surprises. Bad ones…
After my Amazon Associates aplication was approved, I was ready to go. I worked hard to create a music store with over 9300 songs and albums, each linking with my affiliate id. Who thought I will be on Amazon banned list ?
One day, I receive an email from Amazon that said they made a second review of my application which said:
“Thanks” to a link in footer ( which was there when they approved my application the first time) that pointed to Amazon.com, they decided to terminate my account due to “violation of terms“, although they made a first review and was no problem.
They receive issues and reports, but no matter why you have banned, the answers will be “We can’t help you, you did something wrong”.
For me was a big hit. At this point I lost the money and the time invested in this project. Their suggestion was to create a new account and get a new affiliate id ( because you can’t use an old one). But the problem here is that I had over 20.000 affiliate links to replace the old affiliate id.
So I have decided to terminate the project, forget about Amazon,move forward and start working with the fulltime Affiliate Networks.
The list I made contains the Affiliate Networks I work with. They are safe to work, they have very good paying offers, quality user-friendly websites, tools for advertising, various payment methods and good support.
I really recommend you to affiliate with these networks bellow. As long as you respect the minimum requirements, you risk nothing.

MaxBounty is the number one Affiliate Network when it comes to PPL ( pay per lead). It pays up to $80 for a single lead. The only downside is that MaxBounty has a strict applications approval, but I have made a post to help you get approved 100% sure.
Crakrevenue is the leader Adult CPA Affiliate Network. Some of it’s features are:

I love PeerFly because is accepting publishers to become affiliates from all over the world and you can request payments even daily.
It has over 1300 offers, including for PPL. As for the payments, you can set two monthly limits ($50 and $500 ) and withdraw with Wire, Check and PayPal.
Keep in mind that for completing your application you will receive a phone call from a robot which will give you a PIN number. To verify your account, you must send a picture of driver license, passport or id card by email.
