Hey everyone! So, I don't normally do posts about me being an affiliate of any website because I tend to jump around various affiliates from time to time and it's hard to see which affiliate that I'm going to be with in the long haul. But, I have decided to do a post about the most recent affiliate I just joined because I feel like I will be staying with this website in the long haul. So, here we go!
So, before I get into what book site I have become an affiliate of, let's talk about what's going on in the real world right now. So, you all know that we are in the middle of a pandemic and because of this, businesses are starting to suffer. Some of the businesses that are being affected by the pandemic are bookstores, especially the small and independent bookstores.
Not only that, but many small and independent bookstores have to struggle with competing with giants like Amazon to make a living. So, what's a good way to help out independent and small bookstores that are struggling in this current environment? Simple!
BECOME A BOOKSHOP AFFILIATE!
What is Bookshop, you ask? Well, Bookshop is an online bookselling service that supports local bookshops, including indie bookstores. So, if you pick a specific book store or independent bookstore that uses bookshops to deal with their online orders, than that specific bookstore will get all of the profits from your purchase. However, if you don't pick a specific bookstore and order from the Bookshop website, then 10% of every sale will be processed into a pool where the earnings are divided up and given to independent bookstores. So, no matter how you order a book from Bookshop, you will still be supporting an independent bookstore. You can also get some discounts when you are purchasing books through Bookshop!
