FAQ's - How easyfundraising works

No! You pay exactly the same price as you would if you visited each retailer’s website directly.​ 

easyfundraising has partnerships with over 7,000 retailers who will donate part of what you spend on their website to your chosen cause.​ 

The retailers pay us a commission because when you start your shop from easyfundraising, they can see we sent you to them. If you make a purchase, a commission is generated, and we turn that into a free donation.​ 

Most retailers pay a % of what you spend with them as a donation. For example, if you spend £150 on a hotel via booking.com, they will donate 3% which is £4.50. Some insurance and mobile retailers pay a one-off donation of up to £50!​ 

We work with over 7,000 retailers.

No. Using easyfundraising does not add any cost to your online shopping. The retailer covers the cost of the donation meaning it’s 100% free to use! 

Retailers are always looking for people to come to their websites to browse their products and offers. Those retailers pay websites like ours a commission if people we send to their website, go on to make a purchase.  

Retailers pay us a commission when a sale is made on their website from a customer who has come via easyfundraising. We pass on 50% of that commission to the cause you have chosen to support. The donation amount you see on our website and app is the amount we pay across to the cause. 

We also make money from advertising retailer offers and promotions in emails and on our website. 

No, for the main loyalty point providers the collection of points is unaffected when you shop via easyfundraising. If you want to double check a specific website or retailer, drop us a note at:  support@easyfundraising.org.uk

We collect payment details from a cause when they register on the platform. Then, once a quarter, we send across all donations which have been paid out by the retailers. A cause needs to hit a minimum threshold of £15 before a payment is triggered. 

You can only select one cause at a time for your donations to be added to, but you can change this as often as you like. 

Yes! Once you have an account set up on easyfundraising, you will have the option to install our browser extension which we call, our Donation Reminder. It will pop up on every retailer site where a donation is available which means you don’t have to remember to come to easyfundraising first! 

Yes! You can download our App from the Apple or Google Play stores.
