SSL Shopper is supported by the use of affiliate links
In addition to some advertising, SSL Shopper earns referral commissions if you purchase certificates from many of the SSL providers via our site. This is known as affiliate marketing. This is very common on the Internet as a way to monetize information and tools.
How it works
When you click a link to visit or buy a certificate on SSL Shopper, a special cookie will be created to track the referral. If you end up purchasing, the SSL provider will pay us a referral fee. It's just like a salesman getting paid a commission for selling a product. We use the income generated to pay for server and development costs for the website. Without it, we wouldn't be able to offer the information and tools that we do.
It doesn't cost you any more to use the referral links on our site but it does help us pay the bill so your support is greatly appreciated!
