On The Outdoor Phoenix Community site, or any other site, an affiliate relationship is one where a party that writes blogs or creates other online content, including reviews and/or recommendations, is compensated for a sale via a provided link, usually by commission based upon that sale’s dollar value. When a user clicks on an affiliate link and makes a purchase via said link, the site may earn a commission on that sale. Affiliate relationships can also include sponsorship or the receipt of free products or services in exchange for promotion, review, recommendation.
