Affiliate Disclosure FTC

Last Update: November 20, 2015

HI

Does anyone know if there is a free plugin for the purpose of Affiliate Disclosure in compliance with the FTC rules?

I came across Insta Legal Pages but this is a paid option -

Your advice greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Victoria

So far, I have found this by a **google search**:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/ftc

My opinion; The complete loss of Laisse Faire Economicss.
Bye bye privacy.

Thank you. Only problem is that plugin is not compatible with my theme and was last updated three years ago. True about privacy but I guess we have to comply, right?

Yikes! The best info I could find,.
Maybe you could create a disclosure page just for that purpose, the FTC has a pdf file on the link I sent you. As an example for tje text or reading.

Did you do a search in plugins at your dashboard? I didn't find one when I searched, but, did find that at WP: http://714web.com/add-ftc-compliance-blocks-wordpress-shortcode/

HI - yes I did search within my WP but didn't find one. But the Insta Legal Pages didn't show either - so I wondered if I wasn't searching well enough. I would have thought there would be a plugin for this - as there is for the EU Cookie Law etc. I will take a look at your link - thanks for taking the time to look.

That's most likely the reason there is no free plugin for this ... the law. Companies are hesitant to provide freebies especially when they may be held liable for something.

Hope the link is useful to you.

Cathy - this was a great link - thanks. Installed the short-code plugins as directed, editied them so that they were styled to me and now have an easy way of showing an FTC declaration on each post. Best to comply. Thanks again for finding that.

Good question. I'm working on a financial site and would like to know the same answer for the SEC disclaimer requirements. I'll be interested in the answers you get. Let us know. Ted
