Flocktoo Make a Difference Coming Soon

FAQs

What is Flocktoo Make a difference?

Flocktoo Make a Difference brings Flocktoo, Irish Businesses and Irish Charities together to work as one to make a difference. Businesses can construct their voucher in the exact same way as traditional Buy Now Vouchers and we then donate the commission rate to an Irish Charity of their choice.

How does it work?

Flocktoo Make A Difference works when a business creates a unique type of 'Walk-in' offer or 'Buy Now' voucher that allows them to donate a portion of their sales to charity.

I'm a business and want to get involved with Flocktoo Make A Difference, where do I start?

Well first things first, register your business on Flocktoo to create your profile and begin creating your ads in real-time using our ad creation tool - Flocktools. When creating your offer/voucher simply choose the format "Flocktoo Make A Difference" and select a charity you would like to work with from a list of our charity partners. You can then set exactly how much you would like to donate to that charity and continue creating your offer/voucher yourself. Each business taking part in Flocktoo Make A Difference must be pre-approved by Flocktoo during registration.

What is a Flocktoo Make A Difference 'Walk-in'?

A Flocktoo Make A Difference 'Walk-in' is an offer created by the merchant where a portion of the sale goes to their chosen charity as a donation. People can walk-in and redeem these offers directly from the merchant.

What is a Flocktoo Make A Difference 'Buy Now' Voucher?

A Flocktoo Make A Difference 'Buy Now' is a style of voucher that can be bought online via Flocktoo and redeemed later, all the while supporting an Irish Charity. The Merchant creates a discounted voucher and agrees to give a set amount of commission from that sale to a chosen charity. Flocktoo has a set minimum commission rate of 20% but businesses can decide to set a higher commission rate donation. (This commission rate includes a 5% credit card fee that goes directly to the credit card company.)

Are they different to regular Flocktoo "Buy Now" Vouchers?

Yes - Regular 'Buy Now' voucher style offers involve a set commission rate of 20% that is paid to Flocktoo rather than an Irish Charity. (This commission rate includes a 5% credit card fee that goes directly to the credit card company.)

If the commission from my voucher is going straight to the charity what is the benefit for Flocktoo?

We're generous birds at heart and as a new Irish company we saw it as our corporate social responsibility to set up a section of the website that we thought would generate much needed fundraising for active Irish Charities. We've developed 'Flocktoo Make A Difference' in hope it will attract attention to these worthwhile causes and Flocktoo itself.  

How do I pick a charity?

We have formed relationships with the following Irish Charities who have agreed to take part in the Flocktoo Make A Difference program; St Vincent de Paul, Educate together, Temple Street, Barnardos, Barretstown, Irish Heart Foundation, Focus Ireland, Breast Cancer Ireland, ISPCC, Our Ladies Hospice.

Feel free to suggest a charity you may already have an association with here, we would be more then happy to get in touch and encourage them to take part.

How much do I have to give the charity?

If you are creating a 'Buy Now' Voucher, we have a set minimum commission rate of 20% (This commission rate includes a 5% credit card fee that goes directly to the credit card company) if you would like to donate more then 20% that is absolutely no problem. You can choose a higher commission rate when creating your voucher.

If you are creating a 'Walk-in' offer you can decide the amount from each sale you would like to donate to the selected charity with no restrictions. Make sure to specify the redemption task in your 'Walk-in' offers to help monitor sales, as Flocktoo is not responsible for your charity donation.

Does my chosen charity help promote my Flocktoo Make A Difference voucher?

Yes, each charity that is part of the Flocktoo Make A Difference program have kindly agreed to promote each 'Walk-in' offer and 'Buy Now' voucher that contributes to their cause, to their large database via email.

How can I spot if a voucher/offer is part of "Flocktoo Make a difference"?

Each voucher/offer will contain an orange tag in the corner labeled "Make A Difference" along with a banner featuring the chosen charity's logo. Look out for the orange tag to spot these offers in the timeline.

How do I know how much money is going directly to the charity?

Great Question. Every business that is involved with Flocktoo Make A Difference goes through an approval process by both Flocktoo and our partner charities to ensure all transactions are fair and secure. With the 'Walk-in' offers, the business will specify in their main description exactly how much of each sale will go to their chosen charity. With the 'Buy Now' vouchers, the business will specify in the main description the percentage of commission of each sale that is going directly to their chosen charity.

I'm a charity and want to get involved with "Flocktoo Make A Difference", where do I start?

That's great news! We would be delighted to have you as a part of the Flocktoo Make A Difference Team. Firstly register your charity with Flocktoo here and we will get in touch with you immediately.

How much will our charity get out of each Flocktoo Make A Difference offer?

Well when it comes to 'Walk-in's each charity donation can be agreed between the charity and the merchant. With the 'Buy Now' vouchers Flocktoo have a set commission rate of 20% (This commission rate includes a 5% credit card fee that goes directly to the credit card company) In other words the charity will receive at least 15% of each sale. Businesses can decide to set a higher commission rate if they would like to donate more than 15%.

Do I need to give our charity account details to Flocktoo?

Yes each charity involved with Flocktoo will set up a Flocktoo Make A Difference account in which the donations from the 'Buy Now' vouchers will be monitored and directly transferred.
