Has anyone else gotten this when checking Amazon Associates page???? I have emailed them with no response. What has happened now.....
Try looking through the Amazon Associates Forum:
Yes I have also received that the other day around when my amazon account was just approved. I hate them!
Are you from a state that Amazon no longer works with: Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota, North Carolina, or Rhode Island
While you won't be able to use Amazon on HubPages, there are options.
You can go to Wizzley and sign up for viglink through them. Then you allow Viglink to convert your Amazon links. to Viglinks. You're paid through the Viglink program. There are 30,000 other affiliate programs available to you through VL.
You can also sign up for an individual Viglink account and use it on your own website. There are alternatives and they are very good ones. I have almost 200 Wizzles and they're getting good traffic.
If you're willing to be flexible and try new things, you'll be okay. If you insist on staying here and beating a dead horse, you'll lose ways to monetize your work.
Viglinks just announced that they will be finding alternatives for amazon for links in webistes by users from ineligible states.
Skimlinks will still serve Amazon, but not for long IMHO.
Where did you read that, I'd like to go take a look? Off to their website now.
Wow, they've just recently changed their TOS. I looked at it just a few weeks ago. Well that' strategy is down the drain for Amazon.
However you can focus on stores such as Wal-Mart and Target that are located in those states, because they already have a nexus and charge state sales tax. With Viglink, you don't have to belong to separate programs - and many of these programs are hard to get accepted in. Wizzley is still an alternative for writing.
Thank you for your responses. I finally got a response from Amazon as well:
We closed your accounts on June 30, 2013 due to an unconstitutional tax legislation in Minnesota.
We share your concerns about the Minnesota legislation and we appreciate your position as a former Associate in that state. Because of this unconstitutional legislation, we closed the accounts of all Minnesota -based Associates.
While we oppose this unconstitutional state legislation, we strongly support the federal Marketplace Fairness Act now pending before Congress, which would create a simplified, constitutional framework to resolve interstate sales tax issues and would allow us to re-open our Associates program to Minnesota residents.
We thank you for being part of the Amazon Associates Program, and we look forward to re-opening our program when Congress passes the Marketplace Fairness Act.
Sucks...I had a balance to be paid on that account too.....
The balance was probably paid, have you checked?
Wow, I just read this forum and because I'm from Minnesota I checked and they closed my account as well (balance unpaid). I only had like 20 cents, so I didn't affect me much...BUT, my question is this. Should I go through my hubs and remove any amazon links? Am I just doing free advertising for them right now?

I'm kinda pissed and extremely dismayed. I've been with Hubpages and Amazon Associates for 5 years now and haven't made a dime with Amazon the entire time. I've reached out for help numerous times and not a single person told me that I have to get my Amazon links from the Amazon Associates website...

I had an Amazon Associate's account for almost just as long as I've had my Hubpages account. While I never really earned much on it, I still appreciated the little income I would get, especially around Halloween. I then tried to sign up for the Hubpages Amazon program, but after trying it for a...
