This site’s primary revenue is made from affiliate links. However, that said, not every VPN is an affiliate partner. In order to become an affiliate partner, a VPN has to be rated in the upper part of tier 1 or tier 2.
Additionally, some VPNs do not have affiliate programs, and are rated fairly anyway.
Reviews are not categorized by commissions or any other monetary basis. Reviews are made from my opinion and subsequent tests, and then ranked. We do not accept sponsorships or paid reviews to influence opinions, and standard affiliation agreements are made and whatever a VPN offers the channel, is what we accept. We do not negotiate better deals to influence rankings.
Promo codes given are either created or given at a standard rate, or created by myself with no special promotion. Promo codes are not “sponsored” because they provided to my channel on a standardized level that any other affiliate can attain.
Rankings are not made based on commissions or arrangements!
