Donations?

Are apps able to have donation buttons or will they be denied for having one?

So in otherwords I have to have IAP or ads if I wish to make anything with a free app? Would I be allowed to have an IAP that is simply a donation and nothing more?

There is no support for donation in the app at this moment. But you can work around by integrating IAP in your app, not Ads. For a temporary Donation feature you should follow these steps: 1. Create a consumable type IAP item in your app in Distribution Portal and determine the price for the item. 2. Integrate IAP SDK in your app. Refer : https://developer.amazon.com/public/apis/earn/in-app-purchasing/docs/quick-start https://developer.amazon.com/public/apis/earn/in-app-purchasing https://developer.amazon.com/public/apis/earn/in-app-purchasing/docs/sample-apps#Consumable%20Sample%20App It should be consumable since user can donate more than one time. 3. You should check the items availability from app, then show the donation button. Later when you want to disable the donation button, you can suppress the item from your prtal with out changing the app. But still it's a work around. We would not recommend it.
