Amazon and Adult sites

Discussion in 'Amazon' started by a_person, Sep 17, 2010.

    Hi,

    I got my site (adult site) rejected by Amazon affiliates. I read the Associates Program Operating Agreement and they say that they "may reject" an application if the site contains adult content. Which means that they may also approve it.

    Anyone got an adult site approved by Amazon?

    If it is impossible to get approved, then I must say that does not make any sense. Amazon sells sex toys and adult DVDs. It would be a normal thing to have these items showing up in an adult site.

    This Amazon rule sounds like the Google rule of blocking AdSense on adult sites. Google sell ads to adult business, show them in the search results and make a lot of money from it. But people are not allowed to do the same?​

    I think they might not have any related products for that niche at present and that's why the clause in the TOS.

    They might sell stuff later in that niche, thongs or sort i dunno. Hi hi.

    From my experience, most people would not click on products on adult sites - they're there to have fun and be entertained. My suggestion would be to look into pay-per-click programmes. There are a few out there and if your site has good traffic, you could make more on the PPC than you would with Amazon.

    Good luck.

    they approve those lingerie sites and videos sites but usually reject video downloading sites and those image sites. most ofthe time these sites are Warez sites.

    You have no idea how many Internet models are now using the wishlist feature to get spoiled by men. And believe me, they get a lot of gifts (adult related or not). From $5 Disney DVD to $800 piano.

    But if I can't promote Amazon on my site... :mad:

    No. Amazon doesn't accept adult related websites. But there are many affiliate programs that you can prove... and many of them manage sex toys, DVDs, subscriptions and much more. I can recommend you Pussy Cash and many others.

    Amazon sells sexy underwear etc. so it depends on exactly how hardcore your adult site is

    They are all the same, Google for example doesn’t permit adult site to use ad sense either

    I think it is a situation where they are saying "sure you can go ahead and do it, but if we want to we will pull the plug".

    I have several adult themed sites where I use Amazon, however I would not classify them as "porn" sites. They are mainly sexual education type sites, if you have the right type of content you can make real good money selling the amazon adult products. Just don't throw it up on a site with just porn and nude girls, there are better affiliate programs for that, that will actually convert better. Try to use the adult products for sites that are helping peoples sex lives and marriages, etc.
