Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on decentmonitor.com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from decentmonitor).
Amazon and/or other companies pay decentmonitor 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.
decentmonitor uses two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links.
decentmonitor.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.
2. Product affiliate links.
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.”
