    When you say you are trying to add a banner, what do you mean? Can you please clarify what you are trying to accomplish?

    Yes, I am trying to add a clickable link in the form of an image that will take people to Amazons website. I copied the html code(?) and pasted it in the text widget. But only the text showed on my blog and not the image from amazon.

    Only certain HTML code is allowed in a text widget. See this article for details: https://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    Also, there are very strict rules about affiliate links and advertising on WordPress.com.

    For more information about advertising here at WordPress.com, check out this article:
    https://en.support.wordpress.com/advertising/

    Advertising on WordPress.com is limited to affiliate links and sponsored posts. Each of those has limitations and restrictions. Please read the articles thoroughly to understand what is allowed.

    WordPress.com does have a service called WordAdsfor high traffic sites.

    If you want to have full rights to do any kind of linking or advertising, I would recommend getting a WordPress.org self-hosted site.
