In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released its new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links on mypetshopworld.com are affiliate links for which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What are Affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on .com to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from YOURWEBSITE.com). Amazon and/or other companies pay mypetshopworld.com a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate or non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through the link.
My Pet Shop World uses two main types of Affiliate Programs:
1. Amazon Affiliate links.
2. Sovern E-commerce
mypetshopworld.com 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 properties, including, but not limited to, amazon.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports our cause at no additional cost to you.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, I will get a commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like a store.com/… or amazon.com… it can be assumed that it is an Amazon affiliate link or a Viglink.com link.
2. Product Affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online packages are usually affiliated links, as well. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through the link. These links are not “pay per click” unless otherwise denoted.
What about sponsored content?
My Pet Shop World does not write sponsored posts.
My Pet Shop World want to bring you real, unbiased information. However, if a company sponsors a post and it is a paid sponsorship,
My Pet Shop World will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post.
