In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released new rules for Disclosure Compliance. (https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/ftcs-endorsement-guides-what-people-are-asking)These rules are meant to ensure readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. These rules let readers know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about product links on this site: Any/all links to products on this blog are affiliate links of which I receive a small compensation from sales. If a reader clicks on any of these product links, then does normal Amazon shopping, I receive a commission.
What are affiliate links?
When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on this blog to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly, not from The Rubber Tramp Artist or Blaize Sun or Blaizin’ Sun Creations. Amazon pays me a small commission for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for the shopper whether the purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. Purchasers do not pay more—or less—by clicking through my affiliate links.
The Rubber Tramp Artist, Blaize Sun, is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. Amazon offers a commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each purchase via my Amazon affiliation link supports me and my blog at no additional cost to the shopper.
When I link to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in his/her shopping cart through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, I get a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” However, if a reader clicks on the product link and stays around Amazon and purchases another item, I will get a commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like www.amazon.com/…, it is an Amazon affiliate link. Any photo in a post that readers can click on to be redirected to an Amazon page is an Amazon affiliate link.
Please feel free to email me with any questions in regard to my Amazon affiliation.
