Discloser for Affiliates

Rules for Disclosure and Compliance with the FTC

New regulations for Disclosure Compliance were released by the Federal Trade Commission in 2015. By enforcing these rules, web content (or media) readers (or viewers) will be fully informed if or when the content publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or compensated by a partner. By promoting, endorsing, or sharing a link to a product, content publishers earn money from readers, website visitors, and all consumers of content.

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this website: The website owner may receive compensation from the sale of certain products associated with the links on VR Tier.

Affiliate links: what are they?

An affiliate link is a unique link provided to affiliates or secondary websites (content publishers, bloggers, website owners) to promote an online service or product. In the event that a sale is generated through that unique link, a commission is paid to the affiliate.

Usually, this unique link is a URL that contains the affiliate’s ID or username. Advertisers use affiliate links to track the traffic sent to their website.

As an example, when a website visitor clicks on an affiliate link on vrtier.com to purchase an item, the reader purchases that item directly from the seller (not from vrtier.com). In exchange for promoting Amazon’s products or website through its affiliate program, Amazon and/or other companies pay vrtier.com a small commission or other form of compensation.

When a website visitor purchases a product (or service) through an affiliate link or non-affiliate link, the price remains the same.

Note: You will NOT pay more by clicking through to the link. At the moment, vrtier.com uses two types of affiliate programs:

​1. Amazon affiliate links through the Amazon Associates program

vrtier.com participates in the Amazon Associates Program. This is an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn commissions and revenue by advertising and linking to Amazon products.

Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links (typically around 5%).
Any purchase made via vrtier.com Amazon affiliate links supports the website at no additional cost to ​you, the website visitor.

When a blogger links to an Amazon product (with an affiliate code/ID embedded in the link), and a reader purchases an item through the link within 24 hours of clicking it, the blogger receives a small percentage of the sales.

A reader clicking on an Amazon link will not pay per click. If that reader clicks on another Amazon link and purchases another non-endorsed product on Amazon, then vrtier.com will also receive a commission.

Affiliate links for other products

The affiliate link works similarly to the previous description above. The content publisher (vrtier.com) receives a percentage of the sale or other form of compensation if a visitor clicks on the link and purchases a product through the same link. Again, prices are not increased or different when purchased through an affiliate link. If a website visitor clicks through to the affiliate link, they will not pay more, nor are these links “pay per click.”

How does sponsored content work?

If a post is sponsored by a company, it will be clearly displayed and disclosed around the post or article. Your purchases support vrtier.com. Thank you!


If you make a purchase on an affiliate website through the Site, we receive an affiliate commission.
