We’d like to provide full transparency about how we sustain our website and continue to offer valuable content to our readers. Part of our funding comes from affiliate links and merchandise sales, and here’s how it works:
- Affiliate Links: Throughout our site, you might come across links that direct you to products or services on external websites, especially platforms like Amazon. These are called affiliate links. When you make a purchase through one of these links, we receive a small commission from the vendor. This doesn’t affect the price you pay; instead, it’s a way for the vendor to reward us for directing a customer to them.
- Amazon Merch on Demand: We also offer merchandise, created through Amazon’s Merch on Demand service. This allows us to design and produce apparel and other items without holding inventory. When you purchase one of our branded items, we earn a portion of the sale.
- No Extra Cost: It’s essential to note that using our affiliate links or buying our merchandise won’t result in any additional costs for you. The prices remain the same whether you use our link or not. The commission we earn is part of the vendor’s marketing budget, allocated to affiliates like us.
- Supporting Our Platform: By using our affiliate links or purchasing our merchandise, you’re directly supporting our website. The commissions we earn help cover operational costs, content creation, and maintenance, ensuring we can continue providing valuable content for our readers.
We deeply appreciate your support and want to ensure you have a clear understanding of our monetization methods. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Your trust is paramount, and we are committed to upholding it.
