Terms of Service & Website Disclaimers
I would like to start my disclaimer, but disclaiming some of the commissions I make on products I link to.
When I link to a product, I usually earn a commission. This does not however influence my decision to link to a particular product. I would never do that. It’s merely a way to help monetize my website and earn a living.
When I link to a product on Amazon, I earn 4-10% commission. I earn 4% on all electrical goods, and 10% on digital goods, and then the commission I earn on everything else is dependant on the amount of items I sell. The commission I make at the end of the month is usually around 6.5-7.5%.
When I sell ebooks or products that I don’t own, I usually earn around 50%. So if you buy a $50 ebook, I will earn $25 before processing fees. The percentage can vary between products, usually around 30-70%.
The way I link to these products is usually one of three ways. Through an email to my readers, in a blog post, or in an unpaid advert.
Again, I would like to stress that I do not link to products I don’t believe in, and I have never been paid to promote a product. I only promote products I believe in, and when I promote, I earn a commission.
