FTC Disclosure compliance

in 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for disclosure compliance.

these rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media are aware if the blogger or publisher is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. the reader needs to know if the content publisher is making money by sharing a link or product.

in compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this website:

Any/all of the links on are affiliate links for which we receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.

What Are Affiliate Links?

purchases are made on an external affiliate company website: when a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on to purchase an item; the reader buys the item from the seller directly (nor from backpackcorner).

Amazon and /or other companies pay backpackcorner a small commission or other compensation for helping to bring customers to their website.

prices are exactly the same for readers whether they purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link .clicking an affiliate link clicking a non-affiliate link does not change the price or anything else for the visitor.

backpackcorner uses two main types of affiliate programs; affiliate links. 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 an affiliate with amazon service LLC associates program.

2.product affiliate links. 

if u click a product affiliate link and buy the product; then we will get a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation.

again; prices are are not different if u use these affiliate will not pay more by clicking through to the link. these links are not ‘pay per click;

what about sponsored content?

we do not write sponsored posts. we want to provide authentic; unbiased information. however; if a company would like to publish sponsored content on backpackcorner; we will disclose this clearly at the beginning of the post. the bottom line is that we only recommend products we use or those we would recommend to our families and friends.

your purchase helps support our research efforts. thank you very much:
