AFFILIATE DISCLOSURE

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place 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 the links BagsSaleOnline.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 located on a.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from BagsSaleOnline.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay BagsSaleOnline.com a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.

Prices are exactly 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 the link.

I use two main types of affiliate programs:

  1. Amazon affiliate links.

BagsSaleOnline.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 their affiliate links.

If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special 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, however, 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.

  1. Product affiliate links.

The same rules apply to these affiliate links: If you click on the link and buy the item, the blogger will get a percentage of the sale or some other kind of remuneration. Book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are a few examples of products that regularly include affiliate connections. Once more, using these affiliate links will have no impact on the final cost. By selecting the link, you won’t pay more. Unless otherwise stated, these links are not “pay per click.”

What about sponsored content?

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

Appreciatively, Best Regards!!
