This site’s primary revenue is made from affiliate links, which means when you click on a link that I provide, I receive a small cut back if you purchase anything from that link. A small portion of the channel’s revenue is made from Youtube ads. In order to become an affiliate partner, a VPN has to be rated in the upper part of tier 1 or tier 2, or else tracking purchases and subsequently signing up for low rated VPN affiliate programs is not a worthy time investment for the channel. However, some VPNs like Mullvad who prefers to do corporate partnerships instead of affiliate partnerships with creators do not offer affiliate programs and are rated fairly anyway.
Reviews are not affected by commissions or any other monetary basis. Reviews are made from my opinion and subsequent tests, and then ranked on the tier list. 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.
Some VPNs are organized in the tier depending on their relationship to the affiliate industry or their state of business, for full transparency.
Promo codes given are either created or given at a standard rate, or created by myself with no special promotion. Promo codes are not a sign of being “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!
