1. What happens when I click a product name link or product image link to make a purchase?

When you decide to make a purchase, and click on a product name link or product image link, a new window opens, for our affiliate merchant supplier who offers that product, and showing their Cart or other ordering information. When you complete your sales transaction, it is actually with that affiliate mechant site, who collects the payment, and ships the product. By going through our product link, the sale is tracked back to us, and our commission is paid to us by our affiliate merchant supplier.

2. How do I complete my purchase?

To complete your purchase through a Nifty-Home-Bar.com Product Link, you must pay for the product cost (and shipping and any other charges) by using a credit card and by completing your purchase on the internet. Many of our affiliate merchant suppliers show telephone numbers you may call to ask questions or to make purchases, or accept mail-order purchases by check. However, Nifty-Home-Bar.com generally ONLY receives its commission when you complete your purchase by credit or debit card over the internet. If you call in an order directly to an affiliate merchant, or mail in a payment, we do not receive our commission despite your having found the item you purchased, on Nifty-Home-Bar.com.

3. Am I paying more for for the product because you are getting a commission?

No. Your price is the same whether or not we receive a commission on the sale, and the price you pay is the same whether you found the product on Nifty-Home-Bar.com or found it directly on the affiliate merchant site.

4. What is a Product Link?

A Product Link is the display of a Product that, when clicked on, takes you to a different website (in a new window) that completes the sales transaction for the product, and is then responsible for shipping the product to you. All of the products that we display, including the photographs of the products, are part of our "Product Links" to our various affiliate merchant supplier sales sites

5. Why doesn't a product link work?

If you clicked a product or image link to purchase a product, a new window should have opened to our affiliate merchant supplier site, showing purchase information for the product you clicked on. There are three primary reasons why this may not have worked properly:
  • a) The link may be broken;
  • b) The product may have sold out. From time to time one of our affiliate merchant suppliers may sell out of a product and not inform us in a timely manner, and we then still have the product shown, when it is no longer available. In this case, some product links will open to a page that indicates the product is sold out, others merely open to the affiliate merchant supplier's home page, or to other similar product pages, and sometimes to a blank page; or
  • c) Software problems. There are many types of software programs that customers have loaded in their computers, that prevent the new window from opening to the affiliate site, or from opening at all. Software programs to block pop-ups, spy software, and removal software, and many other types, can hinder or prevent you from completing your purchase, and this problem would be out of our hands, but due to your personal computer set-up. You would have to de-activate or remove such software in order to complete a purchase on Nifty-Home-Bar.com, or on any of the hundreds of thousands of sales sites that operate in this fashion. Also, you need to have cookies activated in order to proceed with completing a purchase.

    If you have experienced any of these problems after clicking a product link, please email us, telling us which product you tried to purchase. If the problem is the link itself, we can usually have it repaired quickly. If the product is out-of-stock, we may well be able to replace it through another affiliate supplier, or we may find a similar product.

6. How does offering products in this fashion save me money?

We are continually searching not only for new products, but for better prices on all of our available products. Very often we find the same product available from several different affiliate merchant supplier sites, and we Always pick the site with the best price structure* when we add new products. Also, we frequently find an affiliate merchant supplier with a lower price on a product we already offer, and when we do, we change our product link to the affiliate merchant supplier site with the better price.

*Price is only one factor. If we find a product with a slightly lower price at one affiliate merchant supplier site than at another site, the first site may charge an inflated shipping charge that make the final cost higher. In such cases, we normally chose the affiliate merchant supplier with the lowest total cost.

7. How does offering products in this fashion provide more choices in making purchases?

By picking products from many different affiliate merchant suppliers, we are able to offer product selections and varieties of brands that few single websites are able to offer.

8. I can't find what I am looking for - what can I do?

If you cannot locate a specific product through our listings, please send us an email telling us what you are looking for. If we do not currently have available what you are looking for, we may well be able to find it quickly make it available for purchase.

9. Who are your affiliate merchant suppliers?

Currently, we are affiliated with over 200 different merchant supplier sites. These include many of the most well-known retailers in the United States and the World, and many outstanding, top-rated, and well-run, but less publicized,merchant sites, through whom we are able to offer products not available through more familiar sites. We also have as merchant affiliates many sites that offer valuable services and products which we display as text links and messages throughout Nifty-Home-Bar.com web pages. When you click a product link, you will then see the identity of the specific affiliate merchant supplier site that offers that product.

10. What are my shipping options?

Each of our affiliates merchant suppliers has its own shipping policies. After you click a product link and are taken to the affiliate merchant site offering the product you are interested in and proceed with your purchase, you will see the particular shipping policies of that merchant. Most of our affiliate merchant suppliers do offer shipping options including expedited shipping. However, the majority of our affiliate merchant suppliers ship only to the United States or to the United States and Canada.

11. How do I track my order?

Each of our affiliates merchant suppliers has its own tracking system. The quickest way to track an order is to return to the merchant site (you can do that by returning to Nifty-Home-Bar.com and clicking the same product link you clicked on to make your purchase) and checking their Tracking or Customer Service page.

12. What if I need to cancel an order or return a product?

The best way to cancel an order is to return to the affiliate merchant supplier site (you can do that by returning to Nifty-Home-Bar.com and clicking the same product link you clicked on to make your purchase) and checking their Customer Service page for direct contact information to cancel an order. As to returns, each of our affiliate merchant suppliers has its own return policies, and you should also return to the merchant site to check their specific return policy. The majority of our affiliate merchant suppliers allow returns for any reason, or for no reason, for a reasonable time after delivery. You should certainly seek a return or exchange should a broken or defective product be received.

13. I made a purchase, and now the merchant has told me the product I bought is out-of-stock. What can I do?

Send us an email telling us what product you bought. We may well be able to find it and make it available it through a different affiliate merchant supplier.

14. Why is a price displayed by an affiliate merchant supplier different than the price shown on Nifty-Home-Bar.com?

From time to time prices do change, and our affiliate merchant suppliers frequently effect price changes - both increases and decreases - before we are informed of such changes. We make every effort to keep on top of these changes, but it is impossible to anticipate their occurrence. If you see an affiliate merchant supplier's price that is higher that the price shown on Nifty-Home-Bar.com, please send us an email telling us what product price has changed, and we may well be able to find that same low price through a different affiliate merchant supplier.
