What Are Affiliate Links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on TheWrenchGuy.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from TheWrenchGuy.com).
Amazon and/or other companies pay TheWrenchGuy.com a small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website.
Prices are exactly the same for readers whether they purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. Clicking an affiliate link and clicking a non-affiliate link does not change the price or anything else for the visitor.
TheWrenchGuy.com uses two main types of affiliate programs:
TheWrenchGuy.com is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for website owners to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites, as well as to other websites that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.
If you click a product affiliate link and buy the product, then I will get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation.
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.”
What about sponsored content?
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to provide authentic, un-biased information. However, if a company would like to publish sponsored content on TheWrenchGuy.com, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post.
