FURBAY STORES PROVIDE ANIMAL CHARITIES A FUN WAY TO HELP ANIMALS!
I: Animal Charities – can display any item or service offering on their FurBay online store from anyone wanting to sell something to help that charity!
Typically there are four ways to list items: Fixed price; Auction; Discounts with coupons or gift certificates, and Raffles.
When the terms for the offerings are determined, items are listed on the charity’s FurBay store just like any other online store. Length of time, net cost (if any) the seller wants, and the profits go to the charity.
Sellers need to keep in mind that there has to be a worthwhile profit incentive for the charity to list and sell items. As long as the terms are mutually beneficial to everyone, it will be profitable to all concerned.
But the primary purpose is to help the charity help animals.
II. Supporting Members – people in your community, know they can bring ‘worthwhile’ items to you. If your animal charity has a ‘Gift Store’ already, you are halfway there! Usually, these items are donated so you can place them on your FurBay store and make a 100% profit!
When recruiting new members for your charity, let them know your FurBay is an easy way for them to earn their $20 a month back – while helping them sell their items!
III. Business Members – Businesses in your community or county may be your best source of continuous revenue through their own FurBay stores when they become a Business Member! Why? Because they can benefit their businesses, increase income, and expand their market by helping your charity! FurBay is a win-win for all members and especially for our animal friends!
If your charity is small and you are already short-handed, find one of your members to run your FurBay store for you and give them some financial incentive to do so. They may not want it, but even if they do, offering 10-20% of profits from items sold would be an excellent way to attract support.
Once you have your FurBay store up and running, offering items, services, coupons, gift certificates, and raffles, you will be amazed at how much fun raising money can be!
You will also increase your $20 a month memberships, and together with store revenue, you will be on your way to the increased monthly income you can count on!
