6. Affiliate / Monetization / FTC Disclosure
We’re so glad you’re here on PriceScope with us! PriceScope does not sell diamonds, it is first and foremost an educational, consumer-focused website. With that being said, a website is expensive to maintain. These expenses include staff time, developers, internet, electricity, computers, software, hosting, moderation, etc.
Affiliate links help us do this without costing you, the PS user, anything! On PS, affiliate links might allow us to collect a small commission on diamonds/products bought from some of our vetted vendors. If you found a diamond through us, we greatly appreciate your support in clicking through to it from PS or letting the vendor know you found them through PriceScope. It lets the vendor know that their sponsorship makes a difference. If you buy something after clicking one of those links it does not change your shopping experience or the final price you pay.
Links on this site may contain an affiliate link or automatically convert to one. As a general rule PriceScope uses this system to discourage affiliate link spammers. Some sponsors may also use affiliate style links to help with their analytics systems. As a bonus, we may sometimes get paid if someone clicks on some of those links and purchase a product or service. Any links or recommendations that are posted by us or our community do not represent endorsements by PriceScope Inc.
In the case of our blogs, news, and other content, we may offer direct links to stores and vendors for the convenience of our readers, but unless otherwise stated, do not necessarily represent any type of endorsement to those products. Click here to view who our featured sponsors are.
Regardless of any affiliate relationships, PriceScope plan is to continue to be an educational, consumer-focused website and to be as unbiased as possible.
