Affiliate Disclosure

Introduction:

In 2015, the  Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance.

These rules ensure that you or viewers of web media (blogs, YouTube videos, etc.) know if we are sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company.

In blog terms, you need to know if we are making money by sharing a link or product.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, any/all the links https://bestaffordableelectricbikes.com are affiliate links of which you purchased directly with my advertiser and I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

If you are interested to know more detail about us, here is the post About Us.


What are affiliate links?

When you click on an affiliate link located at https://bestaffordableelectricbikes.com to purchase an item, you directly buy the item from the seller (not from https://bestaffordableelectricbikes.com), Amazon and/or other companies pay https://bestaffordableelectricbikes.com a small commission or other 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:


1. Amazon affiliate links.

I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for my websites 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. This is at no extra cost to you.

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.

2. Product affiliate links.

These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then I get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation.

Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages 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.


What about sponsored content?

I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a company sponsors a post and it is a paid sponsorship, I will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.
