GuideForBuying.com works hard to ensure that all consumers have a one-stop shop for the highest quality products. We strive to provide accurate, unbiased, and honest product rankings, guides, and reviews to our readers.
It is costly to keep our website going. We create relationships with online retailers like Amazon and other companies. These alliances also allow us to expand our website, publish editorial content, and provide in-depth research. Readers will never have to pay to read the rankings, guides, or reviews on GuideForBuying.com. They never have, and they never will.
We want to provide some information about our relationships with affiliates to ensure complete transparency for our readers:
Our relationships are with companies that offer an array of various products. These include things such as affiliate fees and cost-per-click arrangements. All of this allows us to earn commissions via product and brand page links. We use the commissions that we earn to keep the site running. However, our reviews are not influenced by our relationships. You can be confident that our reviews, product guides, and rankings are pure and unbiased.
We take part in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. Our participation provides us with a commission from the company whenever someone buys something from Amazon via the links on our website. However, you do not have to go to Amazon through our site or make a purchase. Your choice does not affect your ability to access the GuideForBuying.com content for free.
If a reader from GuideForBuying.com goes to one of our affiliate’s websites, such as Amazon, and buys an item, we get a commission on this sale. However, the commission can be rescinded if the buyer decides to return the item. Because of this, we are not motivated to recommend products that are poor in quality since if they are returned; we do not earn any commission.
We have never received any form of financial compensation from any company in exchange for a favorable review or for featuring related guides or rankings. However, there are times when companies send us free products to test for research purposes. Our content is not influenced by these free products. We review all products fairly and receiving a free product does not mean that it will receive a favorable review.

We use a comprehensive and fair evaluation system to generate all of our product rankings. This system uses verified customer and owner experiences from a variety of online sources. The recommendations that we provide are based on customer reviews and experiences that are posted on web forums and discussion boards. We also use online product pages to find verified product reviews, and legitimate websites for product reviews, such as Consumer Reports. Everything that we recommend must adhere to our strict criteria.
Our writers do not generate product ratings based on speaking with the employees of the companies that own the products that we review. However, to ensure that they are using up-to-date and factual information about the products, they may contact the company for verification. This type of information would include things, such as measurements, pricing, product materials and warranty information. This information is not subject to the rating system that we use.
