Alpha Shooters generates income to support running and growing this site through affiliate programs. If you’d like to learn more about affiliate programs and how they work, please read on.
Like many websites and blogs, Alpha Shooters may receive a commission for any qualifying click, lead or sale from many of the products and services featured on this site. This is a very common online practice for referring customers. Income we receive this way does not increase the price that you as a reader will pay, and is usually considered part of the marketing budget by the company that sells it, just like a regular online, print or TV advertisements.
We do not receive revenue from all products and services featured on this site. Whether or not the product or service has an affiliate program does not affect our recommendation. We judge all reviewed products and services impartially. If we belong to the affiliate program of a product or service reviewed or recommended on this website by us, then it is always based on our belief that the business and its product or service will provide excellent and valuable information or service.
In some cases, we may receive the product or service for free for review purposes. We would like to stress that we have never been paid to write a review or article, we just may receive commission on a purchase of that product if you click on one of the banners or links on our site. If you did not find value in our service then you are more than welcome to visit the product or service company’s website directly.
Please note that you should always do your own due-diligence before making any purchases. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service on this website should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Why use Affiliate Programs?
The practice of using affiliate links is in no way underhand and to the contrary is common practice among online businesses. It allows one business to promote another business to their customers and to take a share for the referral and/or sale in return. Virtually all large street retailers, brands and manufacturers use exactly the same techniques as part of their online advertising and marketing mix.
Affiliate programs for products and services may be “in-house” and run from the company’s own website or the company may join a network like Commission Junction or Linkshare to help manage and recruit publishers to their program.
