In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
These rules are set to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company.
In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links MyAppliancesHub.com are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What Are Affiliate Links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites:
When a reader clicks on an affiliate link on MyAppliancesHub.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from MyAppliancesHub.com).
Amazon and other companies pay MyAppliancesHub.com a small commission or further compensation 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 non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
I use two main types of affiliate programs:
Amazon Affiliate Links.
MyAppliancesHub.com is a 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 its affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a unique code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale.
Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, I will get a commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like a store.com/… or amazon.com… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.
Product Affiliate Links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or other compensation type.
Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliated links, as well. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links.
You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
These links are not “pay per click” unless otherwise denoted.
