Gathered affiliate links
Learn about our affiliate partnerships and how we select and use shopping links in our gift guides, stash round-ups, tutorials and projects.
What are affiliate links?
Affiliate links connect retailers with publishers and websites like ours. If someone clicks on a shopping link on a publisher site like Gathered, a cookie is enabled that allows the retailer to track any purchase back to our website, and then pay us a percentage of the revenue.
How does it work on Gathered
The affiliate links on Gathered are powered by our partners Monetizer 101 and Skimlinks.
Skimlinks works by aggregating over 65 affiliate networks and over 27,000 affiliate programmes to connect a publisher, such as Gathered, with a retailer. It turns existing retailer links on Gathered into their equivalent affiliate links.
Monetizer 101 provides price comparison widgets to give our users a way of quickly comparing and exploring multiple retailers who sell the products we have reviewed.
How do I buy the products online?
If you decide to purchase a product that's been suggested on one of our posts with affiliate links, you are able to do so by clicking through to your desired retailer to make a purchase on their website. When you do this, a new window will open and you will be taken to a third party site that's completely separate to Gathered. No purchase will be made directly on the Gathered website.
Is Gathered writing our posts based on its affiliate partnerships?
Absolutely not. Our affiliate partners in no way influence Gathered's editorial content. Products reviewed are chosen first-hand and solely by the Gathered editorial team, and will feature regardless of whether or not affiliate partners are able to generate commission from a retailer link.
