Show your support for Brickset

Posted by ,

The more observant among you will have noticed the colourful S@H adverts on the left-hand-side of this page. Brickset is now a LEGO affiliate which means that, if you access S@H by clicking on the ads to get there, Brickset will get a small commission on every item bought.

Having two ads for different markets is a bit messy, and what about the rest of the world, I hear you ask? Well, it seems the different regions of LEGO do things separately and at the moment only NA (US and Canada) and UK have affiliate schemes. I'll put some country detection code in place soon to show only the relevant one when I have worked out how.

I'm hoping to put direct product links on the relevant set pages, if I can get the data in a usable format from them. There are at present 590-odd different sets listed on S@H and I'm certainly not going to add them manually!

Show your support for Brickset by clicking on the link and buying something today!

This is great! I will be buying through you guys when I buy my next sets. But the flashing yellow is kind of annoying when you are browsing sets.

No -- toy buy from LEGO S@H as normal. We just carry their ads.

I'll see if there's a less distracting ad I can use.

I just looked at MOC pages and it seems that they are linking to lego.com like brickset. I do not know if they are being paid for this, but I think they are.
Thankyou for fixing the ads in the lefthand corner Huw.

Looks like MOCPages are doing the same. I hate big ads and won't let them overpower the site, so be sure to buy through my links and not theirs :-)

Oh, and I have now implemented country detection. UK visitors see the UK ad, everyone else see the US one. I have no idea what happens if someone outside NA clicks the link and buys something; guess we'll find out if someone tries!
