In a nutshell - you shop online (anything from a month’s holiday, to a pair of socks to your car insurance) and the charity you are supporting makes money – it really is that simple. You can choose from over 1500 on our site and you will see next to each retailer the possible percentage that your charity can make from your purchase. This can be anywhere between 1% and 35% of your purchase price which will add up quickly. You will be able to see how much you are raising for your charity in “Your Account” area.
As a reward for sending people to their website through Shopping+giving, retailers pay us commission once a purchase has been made. We give a percentage of that commission to your chosen charity; the remainder we keep in order to reinvest in Shopping+giving to keep it running. There is no sign-up fee for either you or your charity.
Signing up is very straight forward. You will have reached here from your chosen charities website so we already know which charity you are supporting. Input your personal details as prompted and you are all set to shop and give. There is no charge for either you or your charity for signing up.
