ThoughtCo Commerce Editorial Guidelines & Mission

It is our mission to help our users make their best purchase decisions. We curate independently-sourced product reviews from writers with subject-matter expertise in every product category we cover. Our product recommendations are the result of comprehensive research by humans – not algorithms. Our independent writers are entirely blind to the terms and details of any business relationships between ThoughtCo and its business partners.

We strive to review and recommend a range of products across a variety of prices, brands, and retailers. We know there is no one size fits all product – everyone has different preferences and budgets. We form affiliate relationships with some, not all, of the retailers whose products we recommend and we are often, but not always, paid an affiliate commission for the referral. If you have questions, comments, or opinions you’d like to share with our team of editors, please feel free to email us at
