Affiliate Disclaimer of My Travelper
November 14, 2018
In the year 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance.
These are rules that are set in place in order to inform the readers or viewers of web media sites such as but not limited to: blogs, Youtube videos, and many more.
The purpose of this is for the viewers to know if the website is partnered, sponsored, or endorsed with a different company. In a simpler explanation, the readers has the right to know if the website is generating money by promoting or sharing a product to its viewers.
In compliance with the guidelines FTC has provided, let it be known that the following links and posts on this site. Any or all of the links of the website “My Travelper” are affiliate links and we will receive a small compensation from the sales of certain products or services we promote.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases that are made on external affiliate company sites.
Especially when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on a .com website to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly and not from My Travelper.
Amazon and other companies pay our company a small commission or compensation for promoting their products or services through their affiliate program.
Prices will be exatly the same for you if you made your purchase through an affiliate link or not.
You will not pay a higher price by clicking through to the link.
We use two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
My Travelper is one of the participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program which is designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by promoting and linking to Amazon products including, but not limited to, amazon.com.
Amazon gives a small commission or compensation on each products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases using our Amazon affiliation links supports out website without any additional cost to you.
If a website links to an Amazon product provided by Amazon itself, and a reader placed an order in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger will receive a small percentage from the sale.
Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, we will get commission from that sale.
Whenever you see a link that looks like astore.com/… or amazon.com… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link.
2. Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product or service, then the website gets a small commission from the sale or some other type of compensation.
Items such as e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliate links as well.
Again, the prices will not be different if you use these affiliate links. There will not be a price adjustment so you will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click”, unless otherwise stated.
What about sponsored content?
We do not write sponsored posts. We want to give you clear, honest, and unbiased information. However, if there will be a post that is sponsored by a company, and it is a paid sponsorship, we will always disclose this to the viewers clearly within the post.
