Will amazon ban my affiliate account for doing this?

6 replies
I have shared my affiliate link to my friends and told them to order the product to my address. Address was same in every order. I collected the phones and I purchased in bulk for reselling. There are nearly 200 items in total. Most of them are the same product in large quantity in same address.

I want to know if amazon will pay my affiliate fees or will directly ban my account...

    Well if you didn't break any rules other than sharing your affiliate link I see no reason why they should ban your account. You just have to wait and see mate.

    Your plan is to have friends "buy" and send to your address so you can be paid Amazon affiliate commission for items you are buying to resell....

    You think Amazon won't notice....200 identical products sent to the same address, using the same affiliate link, ordered by people in the same general geo-location.

    I doubt it work for long.

  • Read this affiliate policy before you sharing link to your friends.

    What is Amazon's policy for Associates placing orders for themselves?

    You may not purchase products during sessions initiated through your own Associates links and will not receive referral fees for such orders. This includes orders for customers, orders on behalf of customers, and orders for products to be used by you, your friends, your relatives, or your associates in any manner.

    I'm sure the OP knows Amazon's policy - he thinks he is smarter than Amazon. If he were operating within the TOS he wouldn't be worried about getting paid or being banned.

    I expect Amazon will issue a reality check at some point....

    It's always easier to ask a question of random strangers on a public forum who will probably confirm your wrongdoing . . . than go to the source's web site, read the terms of service, and scrap your ill-advised money-making dreams.

    Your best bet is to review their TOS to confirm.

    I don't see anything wrong with this though
