bestfountainpen.com is 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.
I aim for full transparency towards readers with respect to advertisers, affiliate programs and business partners. (How can I ask you to return to purchase a second fountain pen through my site if you aren’t satisfied with what I said about the first one?) Your trust is more important to me than an extra dollar.
This FAQ should help you discern that.
1. Do you receive fountain pens for free from companies in order to write a favorable review?
No. I contact distributors and manufacturers in order to receive a sample fountain pens which I then return after I test it, usually about 2-3 weeks to vet it out.
2. Are you getting paid to review fountain pens?
No. I’m never paid to do a review.
But in order to cover expenses (web hosting, new content and reviews, etc.) I link to various affiliate programs like Amazon.com and others where I’m paid a small commission if you buy the product after following a link from bestfountainpen.com
The reviews I write will never be swayed by compensation I receive.
The views and opinions expressed on this website are purely my own or that of any guest poster who reviews and tests the fountain pens on this site.
I will only endorse products or services that I believe, based on my expertise, are worthy of such endorsement.
Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider. I do my best to provide my own measurements on each pen based on my own research using common household tools (calipers, kitchen scale etc.) These aren’t as accurate as the milling machines manufacturers use, but they are all tested the same way for consistency in results.
Thank you for visiting BestFountainPen.com, your readership is a constant gift and I hope you start your pen collection today; you’ll love them as much as I do! (Don’t forget to check out my pages on Journals & Inks.)
