Let’s jump into affiliate links.
Affiliate links are simply a way for me (Passport To Eden) to monetize my website. They’re links that track if you make a purchase to a product or service that I mention. It’s a way for me to make money on my website while still sharing products I love (without having to go through the effort of reaching out to each of the brands for an active sponsorship). Not all links on my website are affiliate links but the following are:
Passport To Eden 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 linking to (but not limited to) Amazon.com. Passport To Eden earns money for each qualifying purchase at no extra cost to you.
Side Note: You will notice independent bookstore vlogs all around this website. Supporting indie bookstores is something I’m very passionate about so although the links are Amazon, know that I’m a huge believer in the abundance mindset: if you are able (I understand many readers do not live in areas with access to a diverse collection of books), please consider diversifying your book shopping to include local bookstores and your library.
Passport To Eden is also a participant in Etsy’s affiliate program, an advertising program (conduit Awin) designed to link to seller’s shops and earn a commission off select purchases.
Passport To Eden also regularly uses affiliate links for:
P.S. If you’re wondering why this list is shorter now, it’s because many of my previous affiliate partnerships closed down in 2020 or stopped paying out.
If you have any questions, let me know! I’d be happy to answer them. I value transparency on the blog. Your trust is way more important to me than any commission.
