What Is an Affiliate Disclosure and How To Write It

Vodien requires all of its affiliate partners to write an affiliate disclosure. An affiliate disclosure is a statement on your content or website stating that you get a commission or incentive whenever someone purchases through the link attached to the product. It ensures transparency and establishes trust between the content creator and the website visitor. Adding this disclaimer to the website page or content allows users to make an informed and unbiased purchase decision. 

How To Write an Affiliate Disclosure

You can write your affiliate disclosure from scratch or use an affiliate disclosure generator online if it has the following qualities:   

  1. Place your affiliate disclosure close to where the affiliate link is for the website visitor to read it before clicking any affiliate links. 
    Tip:You can place the affiliate disclosure on the following:  

    • Website header 
    • Fixed in place so website users can always see it even when scrolling 
    • Sidebar 
    • Privacy Policy 
    • Terms and Conditions Agreement  
  2. Make it short and simple. Avoid using jargon. The website visitor must understand the disclosure.  
    In this part, you can stress that the affiliating company (Vodien) provides the commission and not the website user.
  3. Avoid putting other elements e.g., graphics, buttons, and links on the affiliate disclosure to prevent website users from clicking away from the page. 

Here is an affiliate disclosure example:  

In compliance with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines and to be transparent with our users, be aware that some of the links on this website are affiliate links. This means that, at no additional cost, we may earn a commission if you click through them and make a purchase. 


Our commitment is to provide valuable and honest information to our audience. We only recommend products or services that we believe will be of benefit to you. The decision to purchase through an affiliate link is entirely up to you, and your support through these links helps us maintain and improve the quality of our content. 


We appreciate your trust and support in allowing us to continue delivering helpful and unbiased content.
