What are affiliate links?
Affiliate links are a way for publishers and websites like ours to feature online retailers in exchange for a small affiliate commission. If you click on a shopping link on our website, a cookie is enabled that allows the retailer to track any purchase back to our website. Not all of the products we feature link to affiliate websites – we will also include products which are available on smaller websites, and on sites that are not part of our affiliate network, if we believe they are the right ones to meet your needs.
We only ever feature or recommend products that we genuinely believe you will find useful and we never feature a product we do not like in exchange for affiliate revenue. We want you to enjoy the products you buy and not be disappointed. We always add an affiliate disclaimer to the top of any article which features affiliate links so you can see where and when we use them and make your own choice about whether to click on a product link and purchase.
How does it work on Gathered
The affiliate links on Gathered are powered by our partners Monetizer 101 and Skimlinks, or set up directly in partnership with websites like Amazon.
Skimlinks works by bringing together over 65 affiliate networks and 27,000 affiliate programmes to connect us here at Gathered with a huge network of online retailers. It turns the retailer links we would naturally add into our articles on Gathered into affiliate links.
Monetizer 101 provide price comparison widgets to give you a way of quickly comparing several different retailers who sell the products we have featured.
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.
