We are delighted to announce that we have started working with Shopping+giving – a new, innovative shopping website with all the big-name brands. The purchases you make via this site with the online retailers will bring in money for Pets As Therapy at no additional cost to yourself! This could be a vital form of fundraising for us, particularly during the pandemic when most of us are stuck at home and unable to raise funds in other ways.
How it works
In a nutshell – you shop online (anything from a pair of socks to your car insurance) and we, PAT, make money – it really is that simple.
You can choose from thousands of retailers on the Shopping+giving site and you will see next to each retailer the possible percentage that we receive from your purchase. This is 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 us in “Your Account” area once you have signed up.
As a reward for sending people to their website through Shopping+giving, retailers pay a commission once a purchase has been made. There is no sign-up fee for either you or PAT.
Step 1: Sign up
Signing up is very straight forward. 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.
Step 2: Shop online
Choose from thousands of retailers on Shopping+giving. You can find them by going to the relevant category or if you know which one you’re looking for, type their name in the search box. You will be directed to your chosen retailer after clicking on them. You will arrive seamlessly at their site. Just carry on shopping with your chosen retailer as you normally would.
Step 3: Raise money
As a reward for directing you to their site through Shopping+giving, the retailer pays an amount of commission, which is then paid to PAT.
