AMAZON terminated my affiliate account on 28 April 2021
As a former Amazon Associate I used to earn from qualifying purchases
"Under the terms of the Operating Agreement (https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/help/operating/agreement), we may terminate your account at any time, with or without cause. This termination is final and not subject to appeal."
Below are the reasons they stated (keep in mind, they provided no option for me to change to suit them). This page was here to help share with people how the program worked, and how you could help support my efforts of helping others.
-You are incentivizing
others to visit the Amazon Site via your Special Links by offering
rebates, cashback, discounts, points, donations to charity, or other
incentives, or by stating that customers can support you by shopping
through your Special Links.
Due to this, I have removed ALL Amazon links from MilitaryCAC.
MilitaryCAC will no longer recommend Amazon. If you find a link I missed, please email me and let me know, so, I can remove it ASAP.
My only source of income for the website is now donations via the donations link. Once the money I have dries up, it'll probably be the end of this website. The money is used for the following expenses:
1. $2800 / year for Dedicated server for hosting the website (shared server could not handle the web traffic)
2. $ 875 for TeamViewer & Splashtop remote access software (something none of the official help desks do)
3. $ 150 / year for 2 Exchange accounts (Check email from multiple computers and mobile phones for better support)
4. $ 250 / year for Domain names & registration fees
5. $ 150 / 3 years for SSL certificate (Site can be accessed via https://)
6. $ 35 / 7 years for Domain certification (Verifies that MilitaryCAC.com is registered by Michael Danberry)
7. $ varies / year Purchase new CAC readers to test.
