What are affiliate links?
Affiliate links connect retailers and publishers. If someone clicks on a shopping link on a publisher site like Classical-Music.com, a cookie is enabled to allow the retailer to associate any purchase back to the publisher so that they can take a percentage of the revenue.
How does it work on Classical-Music.com?
The affiliate links on Classical-Music.com are powered by our partners Monetizer 101, Skimlinks and Amazon Associates.
Skimlinks works by aggregating over 65 affiliate networks and over 27,000 affiliate programmes to connect a publisher, such as Classical-Music.com, with a retailer. It turns existing retailer links on Classical-Music.com into their equivalent affiliate links. Similarly, Amazon tracks purchases through affiliate links logged in its Associates dashboard.
Monetizer 101 provides price comparison widgets to give our users a way of quickly comparing and exploring multiple retailers who sell the products we have reviewed.
How do I buy the products online?
If you decide to purchase a product that’s been recommended on our review or gift pages, you are able to do so by clicking through to your desired retailer to make a purchase on their website. When you do this, a new window will open and you will be taken to a third party site that’s completely separate to Classical-Music.com. No purchase will be made directly on the Classical-Music.com website.
Is Classical-Music.com writing reviews based on its affiliate partnerships?
Absolutely not. Our affiliate partners in no way influence Classical-Music.com editorial content. Products reviewed are chosen first-hand and solely by the BBC Music Magazine team, and will feature regardless of whether or not affiliate partners are able to generate commission from a retailer link.
