Affiliate Policy

Keeping It’s FOSS up and running is an expensive affair. Premium hosting, services and author payments are some of the major parts of our expenses.

Ads are the necessary evil that covers only part of the cost. This is why we have an affiliate system in place to support us financially.

Not always but at times, when you buy some products linked by us, we get a tiny part of the sale in commission. You are not charged extra for the product or anything like that. You pay the same whether you use our recommended link or not.

Links to books and games on Humble Bundle, products on Amazon, and courses on some websites might be affiliate links, which means we receive a small commission at no extra charge to you.

All the reviews and recommendations are 100% honest on It’s FOSS. We will never deceive you into buying an inferior product or service. We have built a name on this trust and we will never break that trust.
