What’s the catch?

There is no catch. Shop4Funds is completely free to good causes to use for their fundraising. There are no set up costs, just a registration process. It also doesn’t cost your supporters anything. Their online purchases do not cost any more because of using Shop4Funds.  In fact, some supporters have actually found better deals by using Shop4Funds.  The referral fees paid to Shop4Funds are a proportion of the profit made by the retailer.

Is it really free?

Yes, it really is FREE. Shop4Funds makes its money by deducting an admin fee from the referral fee generated once an online purchase is completed. The rest of the fee is donated to your good cause which is using the Shop4Funds service to point its supporters to the affiliated online retailers.  There are no set-up costs or subscription fees to pay.

If I buy something online using Shop4Funds, will it cost me more money?

No, the price will be the same whether shoppers go direct or via a referral site like Shop4Funds. The online retailers reward sites that refer customers to them by paying back a small referral fee from their profit as a way of saying thank you and encouraging future referrals.  Some supporters who have used the Shop4Funds service have even saved money compared to what they would've paid if they had gone direct to the retailer.
