Merchant Instructions

Determine how much you wish to donate from each sale, 5 or 10%. If your products are a big ticket item, you may not want, or be able, to give even 5%. Let’s say your service or product normally sells for $5,000 and you can’t give away a full 10% or even 5%. So put gift certificates for sale in your Merchant Account for $500.00 toward the $5,000 purchase. You benefit from the marketing benefits of being on ShopClickGive.com because people will find you easier and one percent of your sale still goes to the charity or school of the buyer’s choice.

Quantity. If you are selling gift certificates, you will need as many listed as people might buy in multiple times.

If you have only a quantity of one, someone won’t be able to purchase more than one certificate at any one time.
