Commerce disclosures will be automatically added to stories on The Verge, Polygon, Vox, and Eater. For questions about affiliate linking and disclosures on other networks, reach out to your commerce lead or partnership manager.
Commerce disclosures are for stories with affiliate links to ecommerce products or services. The Federal Trade Commission requires publishers to disclose affiliate relationships to audiences.
Commerce disclosures will automatically be added to any story that contains affiliate links, whether the link appears in the body of the story or an object, like a product card.
Audiences will see the disclaimer below the lead art on our platform and on AMP. The disclosure will also display in preview.
If products in a story should not be monetized, head to the finalize screen to turn off affiliate link rewriting. When in doubt, consult with your manager.
The wording of the commerce disclosure is consistent across each network. To request updates, please contact us.
