Important News - Help Charity

Postby Jefe McForum » 17 Apr 2012, 16:32

[dropshadow=red]Please Help[/dropshadow]


Running Totals so far:

  • Total Items Dispatched 14
  • Order value........................GBP114.43
  • Commission payable............. GBP5.72



Ok, I have just updated our Amazon aStore. The link is in the new menu bar at the top under MCF links but you can also get it here MyCostaForums Amazon aStore

You can now order everything except Kindle products on there EXACTLY as you would on Amazon.co.uk.

We have exactly the same inventory and delivery options (don't forget, if you're ordering directly from Amazon & not a 3rd party seller, you get free del to Spain if your total order is over £25 - but you must select the "Free Delivery" option at the checkout....)


ANYWAY, back to the point of this post. Those nice chaps at Amazon will pay us 5% for any orders processed and paid for. My thoughts are this: at the end of each quarter we will have a board vote on which charity gets the 5%.

I have done a similar thing for a football forum recently and they made £30 commission in the first month. Remember, we're not asking you to buy anything you wouldn't normally do, just to use the forum facilities to do so and it won't cost you a cent extra.

Please, please pass this on to your friends and family. They don't have to join to use the aStore. It looks a little different to start but it soon feel like Amazon. I would love for us to be handing over cash to the local Charities, especially the animal ones and this way we can all help without it costing us anything. I will publish monthly totals....

Please Bookmark and publicise the link - put it in your email signature if you like.... just get it out there

Good man, remember 5% comes to us, which we will put aside. We're not asking people to but anything from us, nor donate, just to buy their usual Amazon purchases through our store

May I please ask that one of the charities be ALPE, or APANEE, as they are both desperate for money to ensure that they can continue to help the children, and they have lost around 15% of their government funding

In order to trigger a payment, the commission needs to exceed £25. Once it does, we'll ask for suggestions and put a poll up on here for members to vote on, so it will be very democratic.
