OURewards, the technology service company that grows as its partners grow, announces the debut of Impact Shopping, its free fundraising solution that provides a private, custom online shopping mall for groups of any size.
“We are unique in the market,” says OURewards co-founder John Lane, “because our business is designed to serve the needs of each group. Our platform and technology enables us provide a high-quality online shopping experience from the smallest group to a national organization, and revenue earned by their supporters goes directly to their group.”
With Impact Shopping, OURewards provides a full featured online mall and a “set it and forget it” communications system that automatically reminds supporters to visit the private online mall. Groups can enroll, add their supporters to the platform, and get back to more important activities.
“The appeal of Impact Shopping is obvious to supporters. They can shop at hundreds of their favorite online stores – like Amazon, Macy’s, iTunes, and Target -- and earn money for the group they care about,” says Lane.
Getting started is simple, and within minutes, a group can have their own Impact Shopping Page is ready to go. Supporters can shop by merchant, item, or price, and because no registration is required, they can share the page with friends and family to help their cause. All purchases that start at their Impact Shopping Page earn commissions for that group.
“When I showed this to the other moms and dads on the team, they were blown away,” says Diana Gruenler, group leader of Legend High School Titans Football group. “We can do all our back-to-school shopping and support the team at the same time. It was an easy decision.”
The recent economy and other hurdles have made it harder and harder for groups to raise the money they need, which makes Impact Shopping a phenomenal new option for fundraising. Now supporters can truly make an impact, even when simply buying new sneakers for their kids.
“When we started the company, we knew we had to do to things really well,” says Randy Coatney, head of operations at OURewards. “First, we had to make it easy for groups to enroll and have their supporters shop. Second, we had to have an amazing shopping experience so that supporters would be happy to come back. We’re not done yet, but the new Impact Shopping experience delivers.”
