MilitaryPay.org is supported by advertisements. These are at no cost to you and help us maintain this website as a free resource for users.
About the Advertising on This Site
We strive to ensure all direct advertisements are appropriate for military members, veterans, and their families. To take this a step further, if we wouldn’t feel comfortable recommending a product or service to ourselves or our family members or close friends, we won’t directly advertise it on our website.
To be clear: if a company does not meet our criteria, we will not directly advertise their products or services.
We do not always have control over certain ads which are automatically displayed by ad servers.
How This Site Earns Money
This site earns revenue through several methods. None of these cost our visitors anything.
In fact, some of the ways we may earn revenue can save our visitors money through special offers, to include discounts, coupon codes, and more. Again, this costs our visitors nothing.
The primary advertising methods are pay per click advertising, banner ads, and affiliate revenue.
- Pay per click advertising is advertising that displays related text links or other information within or around content. We earn revenue when visitors who are interested in the topics click the links.
- Banner ads are a traditional form of Internet advertising that pays based on the number of times it is displayed. This sounds glamorous, but it takes tens of thousands of impressions to earn meaningful revenue.
- Affiliate advertising is also known as referral advertising. This is when a company pays current customers or publishers to refer new customers to them. For example, many companies have a refer-a-friend program in which a current member can receive a cash bonus or some form of credit when a new customer joins through their referral link.
- Another example: we are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. We earn a small commission if you visit Amazon through a link on our site and make a purchase. This is at no cost to you and does not impact the price you pay Amazon.
Editorial Control and Ethics
The thoughts, opinions, and research are those of the respective author for each article on this site. We maintain full editorial control of the content on our site. Advertisers do not review, monitor, or otherwise have any influence over the content on this site.
We do not recommend products or services we believe to be inappropriate for our audience.
We also ensure that none of the advertised products or services will cost our visitors anything more than they would pay elsewhere (again, we are sometimes even able to offer better deals for our visitors).
Finally, not every product or service mentioned on this site is an advertisement. We do not avoid writing about certain products or services simply because there is no advertisement arrangement in place, nor do we write about products or services solely in the hopes of making money. Our primary goal is to serve the military and veteran communities.
This site is here for you, no strings attached.
