What is an affilate link?
Purchases are made through an external website. When a reader clicks on an affiliate link to purchase an item the reader buys the item from the external company. Then Amazon or other companies pay me a small commission for promoting their site or products.
Importantly prices for you are the SAME if you purchase through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You do not pay more by clicking on the link.
I use two main kinds of Affiliate links.
- Amazon Affiliate links: We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites. This means that I get small fees by advertising and linking to products on Amazon properties. Again these links are at no additional costs to you. These links work in that if you click through an affiliate link on our site and place the item in your shopping cart and purchase the item within 24 hours then I’ll get a small percentage of the sale. They are not pay per click but rather pay per sale. If you click on one of the Amazon affiliate links and then purchase other items within that 24 hour period I will earn a commission on those items as well.
- Product Affiliate links: These links work the exact same way but are for non-Amazon products. These include other services and products that I endorse and/or use myself. Again no change in price for you simply a small commission paid to me upon your clicking and purchasing the product.
