How does the money flow work?
When someone purchases an item off the website, $4 goes into your fundraising account. For the Coffee Club, $4 goes into your account for each bag when it is shipped.
Example 1: If Joe from church signs up for the coffee club and gets 2 bags of Ethiopian coffee every 2 weeks. You will get $8 put into their account every 2 weeks for 6 months, as long as Joe keeps his coffee club active.
Example 2: Robert, a friend of the adoptive family, uses the fundraising link he was given and signs up to buy 20 bags of coffee for his business. You will get $80 (20 bags x $4) put into your fundraising account. Since this is a one time purchase, there is no monthly distribution into the account.
Example 3: Peter, a distant relative, uses the fundraising link he was given and signs up to buy 2 coffee mugs, 3 bags of Gobena’s choice, and joins the coffee club and subscribes to get 2 bags of espresso every 4 weeks. You will get $28 into their account initially, and then $8 every 4 weeks after that for 6 months, as long as Peter keeps his coffee club active.
