Affiliate Disclosure

Silver Service Cabs is an automotive blog created by a team that’s passionate about cars. We’re constantly working to make the blog the go-to platform where you can find any information you need on cars and related products. Our primary goal is to help you discover the best information in the automotive industry without spending too much of your time researching for products online.

Now, as a reader-supported, it’s our obligation to make a clear affiliate disclosure for the website. It’s a requirement by the law, one that enlightens you to know whether we receive a commission for the products and links that we mention on this automotive website.

The FTC’s (Federal Trade Commission) Requirement

In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released a series of disclosure compliance rules as policy to ensure that website and blog visitors understand whether content providers receive acknowledgement, collaborations, or endorsement from various online companies.

In terms of disclosure, the FTC requires us to inform our readers that we receive money for posting links or promoting products to our viewers. As a result, in accordance with the FTC’s guidelines, we advise you to assume the following about Silver Service Cabs posts and links:

Some of Silver Service Cabs hyperlinks are affiliate hyperlinks. As a direct consequence, we earn a small part of the revenue from various product sale.

What is an Affiliate Link?

An affiliate link is a piece of text, a clickable image, or a button that when you click directs you to an external website where you can buy good or subscribe for a service.

When you buy something through the link, the external site will consider that as a qualified purchase, and Silver Service Cabs will receive a commission from the company for referring you to their website.

Whether or not you use our recommended affiliate link, the product’s price remains the same. That means you pay the standard price for a product or service, with no additional costs or hidden fees.

You will mostly find two types of affiliate links on Silver Service Cabs:

Amazon Affiliate Links

Silver Service Cabs is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate-advertising program designed to provide a means for website owners to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites, as well as to other websites that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.

Affiliate Links to Brand or Third Party Websites

Silver Service Cabs will provide links to products sold directly by the manufacturer or other websites that don’t have an association with Amazon. We do this so that you have multiple purchase platforms, especially if you’re someone who prefers to shop outside Amazon.

While our goal is to make money with this kind of monetization, you also benefit by finding the right products without spending too much time in the research process. 

We will receive a small commission as compensation if you click those links and make a purchase, depending on the agreement between Silver Service Cabs and our affiliate partners.

Again, keep in mind that the prices of the products do not change when you buy through our affiliate links.
