Let me explain why I link to Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk marketplace on this website (Washer Daddy):
- I am part of the Amazon Associates program (and related programs for Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk sites). It allows bloggers and website owners, like me, to earn some commissions by referring people to the Amazon marketplace.
- If you visit Amazon through a link on washerdaddy.com and buy a product within 24 hours I will receive a small “kickback”. The “kickback” is a commission and is calculated as a percentage of the sale price. So if you buy a $100 pressure washer through a link on this website, I will receive between $4 and $8.50.
- The reason I chose to partner with Amazon is because it has the widest selection and often has the lowest prices, as well as Free Shipping on most pressure washers.
- It means nothing to just say it, I know, but the commission are not enough to retire, to say the least. I didn’t create washerdaddy.com to quit my job as a mechanical engineer. I love pressure washers and wanted to learn more about the residential style as oppose to the industrial as I already deal with the industrial end through my day job. The commissions pay for related costs to the website like hosting, domain register and CMS.
