haveyouseen turns online shopping into charitable giving
A new community-driven social shopping platform, haveyouseen, launches this month which will enable online shoppers to give money to their favourite charities.
It encourages people to recommend their favourite products others, earning a cash reward from the exchange which can be donated in part, or in full, to a charity of their choice.
Charitable organisations will be able to create haveyouseen accounts, which they use to upload collections of items that are related to their cause. Charities can also reach out to their local community and regular donors to purchase their shopping using a unique link which ensures all commissions get attributed to the charity’s haveyouseen account.
Founder and CEO of haveyouseen, Ben van Rooyen, said: “When we started to develop the idea for this site, we were bowled over by the amount of customers who asked if it might be possible to donate their commissions to charity. So we hope that we’ve made it very easy for users to do just that. And for charities to set up an account simply too. We’ve created a full charity fact-sheet and explanation on the haveyouseen site – but we’re always available and happy to chat through the process with any interested charities.”
