The Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
TL;DR: The readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
So, in compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about posts on this site: Some of the links on this site are affiliate links. We can receive a small compensation from the sales of certain items.
When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on this site to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly and not from us. In exchange, Amazon and/or other companies pay us a small commission for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a not. You will not pay more.
- Amazon affiliate links
We participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links.
If you place an item in your “shopping cart” within 24 hours of clicking the link, we get a small percentage of the sale.
- Other affiliate links
These affiliate links work the same way. These will vary in the time to add to the “shopping cart” for us to get the small commission. Again, prices are not different. You will not pay more by clicking the link.
