This monetisation method is called affiliate marketing. The biggest brands on the internet offer affiliate programs, such as Amazon, eBay, and Google. Many of your favourite sites use affiliate marketing to pay the bills.
The only difference is that not everyone tells their users that they make money using affiliate marketing.
When you click on affiliate links, you are tagged with a special cookie to track the referral. If you end up buying the product, then the advertiser pays us a referral fee, which varies for each product.
Question #1 – Will it Cost Me More Money?
No, absolutely not. In many cases, our affiliate deals will actually save you money.
Question #2 – Do You See My Personal Details?
No. We don’t see any personal information, such as your name, email, address, credit card, etc. The only thing we see is that an anonymous user made a purchase on date/time and which product they bought.
