FTC disclosures and affiliate information

The owners and editors of Dappered.com reserve the right to use affiliate programs to generate income needed to keep Dappered free and uncluttered.

Dappered does NOT take money in order to review a product, run a promotion, or conduct a giveaway.  Nor do we keep free samples if it’s possible to send them back.  We believe in staying as independent and unbiased as we can, but we also realize that when there’s an opportunity to use an affiliate program to generate income, it’s a smart decision to make use of it.

What’s an affiliate program? Affiliate programs allow retailers and brands to track where clicks to their websites are coming from.  A commission (y’know, dollars, sometimes cents) can be paid out to that website (in this case, us, Dappered) if the person chooses to buy the product.

Our affiliate programs include: Amazon.com, Google Affiliates, Shopstyle/Shopsense, Click Junction, LinkShare, ShareASale, Schott, and Saddleback Leather Company.  Brands are constantly dropping in and out of different affiliate programs, so a full list would be almost impossible, but here’s a few brands we have some kind affiliate relationship with:  Allen Edmonds, Express, Banana Republic, Gap, Old Navy, J. Crew, Bonobos, John Varvatos, Indochino, Brooks Brothers, Topman, Florsheim, Fossil, Nordstrom, Macys, Lands’ End, Sierra Trading Post, Yoox… the list goes on and on.  Does our relationship with these brands influence what goes up on the site?  Absolutely not.  Have we given poor reviews to products produced by companies and brands we have affiliate relationships with?  You bet.

It’s honestly best to assume that every single last link that points to a retailer has some sort of affiliate connection to us.  That’d be the goal at least.  Again, that doesn’t influence our content or our opinions on products.  Here’s why…

The editors of Dappered pride themselves on being a down to earth bunch with good style judgement, so know that they won’t be pushing crap just to make a couple of bucks.  Because if it’s crap… you the visitor will stop visiting.  And if you stop visiting, what’s the point?
