We’ve gotta be honest with you: The Best Picks runs on commission from affiliate links.
What this means is that on some of our reviews, certain recommended products or services include a link to their website. If you click through to that site and then purchase something, The Best Picks will be paid a small commission. This will cost you exactly… nada.
Some of the products we are affiliated with include, but aren’t limited to:
- Awin (Affiliate Window)
- CJ Affiliate by Conversant
- eBay Partner Network
- Rakuten Affiliate Network
Also, we are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn advertising fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated websites.
Right, that’s the technical stuff. Any questions from the audience? Yes, you there, in the back.
Why do you do this?
Firstly, because this site is run as a business. These links are a way for us to cover our costs.
Secondly, because the products we recommend are great and we want to share them with you! If we don’t endorse it, we won’t link it (and then it wouldn’t be on one of our lists anyway).
Are you recommending them to get my hard-earned cash?
The total opposite, actually. It’s because we rigorously reviewed then recommended the product that the affiliation was made, not the other way around.
Why are you telling us all this?
Because we believe that you should be properly informed on how you make your choices online. No smoke, no mirrors, just an upfront declaration of practice.
So, what’s the bottom line for me?
Great question. It actually comes at zero cost to you. Even better, it means that the link you’re clicking on is for a product that we 100% endorse, so you know it’s something you can trust.
This all just allows us to keep doing what we do: making The Best Picks for you!
