Update: Approximately 12 days after first being reported, the author of the BestAzon WP plugin closed the open WP support tickets stating the issue has been resolved. We now see the demo links on their site working however, there are still ongoing complaints from BestAzon WP plugin users that the links aren’t working.
Recently we’ve been contacted by a growing number of niche and authority site publishers that were previously using the competing service BestAzon, but have found their Amazon affiliate links no longer work, and are looking for help ensuring their sites are fully functioning for the holidays.
