What are affiliate links?
I want to be as transparent as possible. This is my job and I’m making a living wage here on VB. Even though I do loving blogging, it is a full-time job and it is important to make an income to support my family.
The most important, I will never, ever endorse a product or service that I would not purchase myself. Items or services I endorse are things with which I have personal experience and can recommend without any hesitation.
There are two types of affiliate programs on Veggie Balance.
Amazon affiliate links
Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. If a blogger links to Amazon with a special code embedded in the link and a reader purchases an item through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link.
If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale. If a link in a blog takes you to a page on Amazon, you can be 99% sure that it is an affiliate link for that blogger.
Product affiliate links
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale.
Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through the link. These links are not “pay per click.”
What about sponsored content?
If a post is sponsored by a company, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post. Again, I will only discuss a product if I have had a personal and positive experience with it myself.
