I. Charity Memberships – are FREE and are required for a charity to receive funds through various Furbay revenue sources.
II. Supporting Memberships – People can support the animal charity of their choice for $20 a month. Your charity gets 100% of these monthly dues. (200 members X $20 = $4,000 monthly)
III. Business Memberships – Businesses in communities can support not only the animal charity of choice but offer items in their membership FurBay store to benefit ‘any animal charity’ anywhere in the world!
IV. Business or Personal existing online stores already are ‘perfect’ potential business members for adding a FurBay store! Expand their market by appealing to a whole world of animal lovers!
Offering some of the existing inventory they already have and putting them in their FurBay store is a perfect fit. Being able to ‘link’ to their other online stores is an added plus!
You do not have to be a member to shop on FurBay! But occasional special discounts and offerings by Animal Charity members and by our Business Members may be offered only for FurBay members!
These may include ‘Raffle Items’ from time to time which is always a fun way to raise revenue! And, an additional incentive to become a member and provide monthly revenue to charity!
Two: Your Animal Charity’s FurBay Store!
As your charity’s memberships grow, so will your revenue from each of them! As mentioned above, your Supporting Members monthly dues are only $20 a month! Your charity receives all (100%) each month. (Ex: 200 members @ $20 = $4,000 monthly; 300=$6,000, and so on.
But now, animal charities can add revenue by selling items in their own FurBay store they get for Free when they register!
a) Charities with existing Gift Stores already have inventory they can put on FurBay – and reach more people thereby increasing sales revenue!
b) The charity’s Supporting Members can bring items they wish to sell and put them in the charity’s FurBay store also! Profits can be negotiated with charity.
c) Raising more revenue can be fun and rewarding! Gift Certificates, Auctions, & Raffles & More! (See our FAQs and Posts of Interest for ideas!)
Three: Your Business Members FurBay stores!
FurBay Business Members register under an animal charity in their community or county! (preferably and whenever possible)
They receive their FurBay store upon registration, and when they place items for sale in their FurBay store, an optional percentage of their sales will go to the animal charity they registered under!
(Note: All our members who have a FurBay store can also offer items to raise revenue for other animal charities as desired. Emergency needs from disasters, storms, rescues, etc. are good examples fur using FurBay stores to help raise money for those in need. Our goal is to help animals wherever they may be!
