What is an “affiliate commission”?

An affiliate commission means that if you click on one of the links on our website and purchase the item(s) or service(s) we recommend, at no additional cost to you, we will get a small commission for referring you.  These commissions help us pay for the many individuals that we employ, server costs, design costs, content creation, and once in a while, it buys us a cup of coffee.

Do these affiliate commissions make us biased?

If readers choose to buy the products or services that our team recommends as a result of our research, analysis, interviews, and testing, our work is often (but not always) supported through an affiliate commission from the provider when they make a purchase. If readers return their purchases or ask for a refund because they’re dissatisfied or the recommendation is bad, we’ll make nothing. There’s no incentive for our team to pick inferior products/services or respond to pressure from providers—in fact, it’s quite the opposite. We think that’s a pretty fair system that keeps our team committed to serving our readers first.

The most important thing to us is the trust we have from you, our audience. If we recommend something because we’re biased or lazy, and it’s a bad recommendation, readers like you wouldn’t support our work.
