What You Should Know About Affiliate Links
An affiliate link is a URL that includes a unique identifier known as an affiliate ID. Companies such as Amazon and eBay use affiliate links to track the traffic sent to their website from a blog. It is the responsibility of the participants in the affiliate program to organize own affiliate links, and they need to do so in a way that complies with the rules set by the respective affiliate program.
Bootsandpine.com receives a small compensation from Amazon and other firms for directing customers to their website. Note that the cost of the product doesn’t change for customers, and this is so whether you buy through our affiliate links or otherwise.
Note that bootsandpine.com has two types of affiliate programs:
Product Affiliate Links by Footwear Brands
When a user clicks on a product affiliate link, I usually earn a small portion of the sale or some other sort of revenue. It is important to keep in mind that when you use affiliate links to purchase a product, the price does not change for you in any way or for any reason whatsoever. When you click on the link, you pay the same amount, indicating that the links are not “pay per click.”
Boots and Pine is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate-advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. Additionally, this website participates in various other affiliate programs, and we sometimes get a commission through purchases made through our links.

What We Do With Money Earned by Boots and Pine?
We have a simple goal at Boots and Pine:
To grow into a go-to platform where you can come and learn about everything related to shoes, boots, and relevant footwear accessories.
We need to invest time and money to meet this goal, which is part of the reason why we take part in affiliate marketing. The money we make through affiliate offers will help us to:
- Cater for the cost of domain and hosting
- Do topic research. It costs us money to find content idea. Otherwise, it’s almost impossible to create content that our audience wants to read.
- Purchase boots, shoes, and related accessories for real-time testing so we can create content based on firsthand experience.
- Pay our in-house team to test, research, and review different products in the footwear niche with our audience in mind.
