Details of suppliers you see if you compare energy through Gocompare.com, the way results are shown and when and how commissions are paid.
If you choose to compare gas and electricity through Gocompare.com and our partner energyhelpline.com, you’ll have the option to either look at all the tariffs on the market, or all the ones you can switch to using our service.
This option is presented to you before you reach the results page, and on the results page itself you’ll again have the chance to switch between these two views.
Remember that, even if we have a commercial relationship with a particular supplier, that supplier may not offer the opportunity to switch to all of their tariffs through our service, although you will be able to see all the options by selecting 'all tariffs'.
The circumstances of whether or not you can switch to a particular tariff through our site will be determined by the supplier.
It may be that the supplier has a tariff available via limited channels, or if you're an existing customer you'll need to apply to the supplier directly to switch.
If you’d like to switch to one of the tariffs which isn’t offered through our service we’re glad to have helped you find the right deal, but you’ll have to contact the supplier directly yourself.
The commission we receive doesn’t affect the price you pay - it’s not added on and the unit rates for the tariff would be the same if you applied directly
If, on the other hand, you’d like to switch to a tariff through us then energyhelpline.com will handle your switch application with the supplier.
Energyhelpline.com receives a commission payment for each fuel switch successfully completed through the Gocompare.com service, and we receive a proportion of this commission.
The commission we receive doesn’t affect the price you pay - it’s not added on and the unit rates for the tariff would be the same if you applied directly.
We liken it to the advertising and service fees a supplier would've had to pay to attract your custom themselves, and the payment allows us to offer the comparison and switching service at no cost to you, whether you decide to switch through us or not.
Commission doesn’t affect the order of the results - these are displayed in order of the potential saving from largest to smallest, and we’ll tell you if a tariff may cost you more than your current deal.
