Amazon affiliate trademark issue?

trademark

(Krishna Moorthy D) #1

My amazon Canada account was closed due to a trademark violation. The same blog is already approved by amazon India, USA, Germany and UK. I had some dollars in Canada too :confused: . I’ve not used any trademarks in domain name. Any idea about this?

This is bad bro, trademark violation as in, something to do with your domain name or? Can you kindly share any screenshot or the official email you got please? :slight_smile:

My domain name doesn’t contain any kind of brand name or trademarks in it. I have not done any kinda “known” trademark violation :confused:

Have you been using any modified version of Amazon ‘Buy’ button or any other unauthorized button apart from the ones provided by Amazon here bro? I heard about cases where some folks’ account got suspended because of this. :frowning:


(Krishna Moorthy D) #5

Shit. I usually use buy now buttons which I create using thrive builder. But I don’t think that’s a major issue. I got my account approved by Germany, UK, India, USA with the same buttons :confused:


(Krishna Moorthy D) #6

These buttons looks like shit bro, how can you get conversions from these. Also I’ve seen a lot of top authority websites using their own buttons for amazon, I don’t think this is the issue :frowning:


(Pradeep Kumar) #7

Possible bro, do review your blog once again and reapply. I’m sure it’ll be accepted back. Do kindly update me. I’ll speak with someone else regarding this as well, I used Amazon.com and Amazon.in only primarily for affiliate marketing. :smiley:


(Krishna Moorthy D) #8

Yea, cool bro. Also I recommend you to try Germany and UK affiliate with Geni.us because trust me. You’ll surely get few pounds every month from those blogs. You can use Payoneer to get payouts. :slight_smile:

I’ve taken images from amazon.com. That’s the issue it seems!
