How Affiliate Marketing Works

When you make a purchase or, sometimes, carry out some other action as direct result of clicking on a link at The Brick Fan, we will receive a small commission.

When you click on a link that goes to third party sites like Amazon, Shop@Home, eBay, etc. and purchase something, we will receive a commission. How much we get depends on the merchant and is only a fraction of the purchase price.


There are advertisements that are spread out on The Brick Fan in the form of Google Adsense ads as well as Amazon ads.

From time to time we may publish news articles about our affiliate partners concerning promotions, offers, new products and so on. The links in these articles are also affiliate links.
