If you browsed through our website, you’ve probably noticed that we do not sell any physical products. You may be wondering- how do these guys make money and keep this website updated daily?
The answer is- we use affiliate marketing. The links we use to recommend products (usually “visit store” or “buy here”) are affiliate links. This means that if you click one of our links, we’ll use a browser cookie to track your purchase at the retail store. If you make a purchase, the store will pay us a commission.
The price you pay will not change (as you came through our links), and vice versa- many times we communicated with vendors to offer exclusive coupon codes to our readers. So you can use the coupons and save on most products.
The majority of the products that we review are sent to us for free by the store/ manufacturer. We test & evaluate the products, and then post a review which reflects our honest opinion about the product. The store does not have a say in the review content, and they can not tell us what to write. Our reviews reflect our own opinions.
This business model is helping us to keep this website free from annoying ads and popups. We stay away from anything that can slow or affect your browsing experience. Was there an annoying popup (pushing an advertisement to your face) when you came into The Vape Guide? Nope. Everyone hates these. Including us.
If you purchase through our links- we APPRECIATE your support. We’ll do our best to use these funds to provide more value in the vape world. You guys are what keep this website going and growing together with the vape industry.
If for any reason, you feel uncomfortable with us making a commission from your purchase, but still want to buy a product- simply open a private (incognito) tab, and go the store directly without clicking on our “visit store” links. And you are still awesome, and we love you too.
If you have any questions about any of this, please feel free to contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
