Amazon Affiliates is back and reinstated in california

14 replies
As you may have heard, California Governor Jerry Brown has signed legislation repealing the law that had forced us to terminate our California Associates. We are pleased to invite all California Associates whose accounts were closed due to the prior legislation to re-enroll in the Associates Program.

If you haven't already re-enrolled, please click here:

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com...ment/main.html

When asked to sign in, please use the same email address and password that were previously associated with your Associates account. To make your return to the Program as seamless as possible, when you re-enroll, your account settings (login, Associates ID, payment information, etc.) will be the same as they were previously. Traffic you referred while your account was closed won't be eligible for advertising fees.

    So what happened to outstanding commission balances when Californians were locked out?, did affiliates get stiffed like so often happens when they get kicked off for any reason the advertiser chooses, or were they paid off for any outstanding account balance when shutdown and now start with $0.

      That's a good point. It would only be right for Amazon to reinstate the commission that was present before the account closed - after all - the affiliates did earn that fair and square.

      Anyone got their account reinstated? Is your balance back to $0?

      I'm still waiting for my commission check for the balance I had accumulated before Amazon kicked us out. They assured me I would receive a check at the end of September and to contact them if one does not arrive. I'm going to give it a few more days.

      If you happened to leave your site up and running during the down time, any commissions "earned" during this period will not be distributed to associates.

      Regardless, this is great news!!

    I just got the email a few minutes ago. I'm glad I was too lazy to change out all of the affiliate links on the handful of Amazon product review sites I had, now I don't have to change them back.

    Maybe I'll promote those sites, get them making some money and then sell them before California gets booted out of the program again.

    And if you got caught trying to cheat Amazon, by falsely claiming residency in another state, I doubt you will be reinstated.

    Very happy that sanity has prevailed in this case, thank god. I don't even live in California, I live nearby in NV, but hopefully this will discourage other states from taking similar actions in the future.
