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.
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.
Getaway Cabin: I have a really complicated relationship with Getaway. On one hand, I have affiliate links within my Getaway review (and several other spots on the blog). But on the other hand, I’ve been paid out less than a fifth of what I’ve earned through them in the past year. And even that fifth came in after sending Getaway email after email after email after email to follow-up. As a business move, it would be best to remove all the Getaway links on this website but I understand that Getaway as an affiliate program and Getaway as a product are two separate entities. So whilst I think their cabins are lovely, if you’re a blogger reading this for affiliate program ideas, I don’t recommend Getaway’s affiliate program at all.
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.
