Default Amazon links compliant with TOS?

Do you know if your links are compliant? My amazon affiliate account was just terminated for link shortening so they say. I don't think it was datafeedr but I just wanted to make sure.

We do not shorten any links. By default we mask links but the landing page URL is always the full Amazon affiliate URL.

Did Amazon provide any more information? Did they mention the exact site in violation?

Are you using somewhere on your Datafeedr site(s) or on third party sites you use (Twitter, ....) shortening services like,,...?

They didn't provide any information as to what the exact violation(s) are/were just terminated me and aren't paying me for 2 months of commissions (approx $3000) which sucks. I think I have found the reason which was a theme I used but then again not a 100% sure because they are very vague with the reason for the termination and just sent me the link to their TOS. I am beginning to make the slow transition of all my former amazon sites and getting appropriate products to replace with. Datafeedr is making it easier for the most part.

There's now an option to use direct links to all Amazon products. To enable this:

1. Go here: WordPress Admin Area > Tools > Datafeedr

2. Upgrade the Datafeedr plugin to version 3.11.5457 (or greater)

3. Go here: WordPress Admin Area > Tools > Datafeedr > Amazon API > Link Settings

4. Check the always use direct links for Amazon products checkbox.

That will unmask/uncloak all Amazon affiliate links on your site.
