What is an Affiliate Link?
Many (but not all) of the links on happypindesign.com are affiliate links. This means that a special tracking code is used and that I may make a small commission on the sale of an item if you purchase through one of these links. The price of the item is the same for you whether it is an affiliate link or not, and using affiliate links helps me to maintain this website and support my family.
Again, for simplicity, assume that any link on happypindesign.com is an affiliate link and that I may/will make a commission if you purchase through these links (though the price remains the same for you).
If you are going to purchase a product and would like to help support this website (which I would be very grateful for!), links to many of the products I recommend can be found on the resources page.
When Do I Use Affiliate Links?
I post affiliate links on my sidebars, in blog posts, and on certain pages. I also will post affiliate links from time to time in emails and other marketing efforts. If I post a link to a product, I have experience with the website and/or product. In the case of Creative Market, I have purchased many design files from them, however, I haven’t used every product on their website. When I recommend a company, it is because I’ve personally used them, however, it doesn’t mean I’ve purchased all of their products.
I do not accept free items in exchange for a review. It’s my personal value to offer links to companies that have helped me. My main focus is to help my readers by recommending products and services I have used and found helpful. For instance, I use Flywheel hosting and recommend it to others because I know it’s fast, has really great customer support, and is designed especially for freelancers. I always recommend companies that I feel are top-notch and supportive.
Nature of Affiliate Relationships
Please note that these products are purchased from third-party companies and I do not control these companies or have a financial interest other than an affiliate relationship unless otherwise disclosed.
For this reason, I cannot ensure that any item purchased through a link on happypindesign.com is shipped on time, packaged properly, is easy to download, or that you will like it. Any problems or concerns with a specific product purchased through a link on this website should be directed to the company the item was purchased from.
