No, we do NOT sell anything on BayReviews. And we will never sell anything on BayReviews. We do, however, display ads that may direct you to other sites that probably do want to sell to you.

We buy products we review because we review what we own first.

Our review and ratings are always based on our testing and experiences with the products.
