How does My Charity Marketplace work?
My Charity Martkeplace works like any other online shopping platform - you choose a product you want to purchase and it is supplied by our creative partners. The main difference is that for every sale we donate 7% of our profit to a charity of your choice. You'll get to choose one of our charity partners at checkout.
How do I decide which charity I want to support?
That depends on how you navigated to the My Charity Marketplace online shop. If you found us via our URL (www.mycharitymarketplace.com) or a search engine such as Google, you will be shown a list of our charity partners when you are checking out. If you do not have a favourite you can choose for the donation to be divided up between all of our charities. If you have a favourite, simply tick their name and the full donation will go straight to them. If you arrived at My Charity Marketplace via a link from a charity website then that will be the sole charity you can donate to at the checkout stage.
Can I give an extra donation or Gift Aid?
The donations on sales come directly from our company profit so it is not possible to add Gift Aid. However, at checkout you will see the option to give an extra donation to your favourite charity, and if you choose to do this then you will be asked if you are a UK Taxpayer and if you wish to Gift Aid your extra donation.
Who gets the money if I am buying Charity merchandise?
If you buy charity merchandise (such as Charity Christmas Cards) directly from our online charity partners' shops then 100% of the sale goes to charity. We exist to support charities, we never make a profit from them.
Do I need an account to shop on My Charity Marketplace?
You can checkout as a guest or you can register to create your own account. Creating an account makes it simple to make another purchase in the future, check on past orders, save items and create a wish list so we recommend this option.
Is it safe to shop on your website?
I have forgotten my login details can you help?
Just click on the forgotten my password link on the sign in page. An automatic e-mail will be sent to your registered e-mail address and guide you through how to reset your password.
What payment methods do you accept?
Like most online shopping platforms we accept most debit and credit cards. We cannot accept bank transfers, cheque, cash payments or donations other than with a purchase.
