How is Website Rating funded?

Our website is reader-supported. When you purchase a service or a product through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission (find out what this is here).

This website is supported by our readers, like yourself! If we help you find a service or product that you like, and you choose to sign up with them via our link, then we get paid a commission. Read our affiliate disclosure page here.

Why do we do this? Firstly, and the most obvious reason. Because we’re running a business. But also, it allows us to avoid doing intrusive (and annoying) banner ads.

Does this affiliate relationship impact the ratings and reviews? No, never. Our affiliate relationships do no influence the reviews and ratings on this site.

Why are we disclosing this? We believe in transparency on the Internet, plus we want to be honest and upfront with our visitors.

Does this mean you have to pay more? Not at all. On the contrary because in some cases we’ve put together a deal with some companies that help our readers save money.

Social Responsibility

As a small business, we understand the importance of funding. That is why we like to help people in developing countries finance their small business ideas. We believe the best way to do this is through Kiva.org.

Kiva is a non-profit organization that enables people from all over the world to lend money to low-income entrepreneurs and students in 77 countries across the globe for as little as $25. You can read more about the projects we have funded on our Kiva page.
