FAQ’s

How does PIF make money?

×

PIF makes commissions from our merchant partners when you use the PIF platform to shop your favorite retailers. We work with affiliate networks to help confirm your purchase so we can get a commission from the merchant. What makes PIF unique is that we commit to pay it forward. Our earnings from each transaction go to the PIF Fund, which at the end of each month is donated, in whole, to the vetted organization(s) selected for that month.

How does PIF pick organizations to donate to?

×

With the help of Charity Navigator, the team at PIF spends countless hours each month researching organizations to partner and communities to better serve. We choose charities based on their transparency of spending, the size of the organization, the impact they have, and their willingness to partner with PIF.

We want your input and we encourage our community to help us choose charity organizations. Nominate your favorite organization(s) for us to review.

What information does PIF collect?

×

Will I receive a transaction confirmation email?

×

PIF does not send transactional emails. Just as a normal order, you should expect any transactional emails to come from the retailer or brand you purchased from.

What is PIF’s mission?

×

We understand that fundraising can be a cumbersome and time-consuming task for non-profit groups. PIF strives to provide some relief by raising $1-million per month and providing those funds to the vetted organizations working hard making our world a better place.

How is PIF different from CashBack sites or some of the other giving sites?

×

Unlike cashback sites and our counterparts, PIF aims to make the greatest impact possible by enabling amazing organizations to do more. The way we achieve this is through combining our efforts, focusing on a smaller set of non-profit organizations, and providing as much funding as possible. What that means, in place of a small amount of “cashback” other sites may offer to their user base in exchange for their transactions, PIF sets aside 100% of our net-profits earned from the commission the retailers pays PIF and funnels it into the PIF Fund, which it's donated each month to a vetted charity to power their causes.

Amounts under $1,000 will keep rolling over to the following month until this threshold is met.

Does PIF cost me anything?

×

Using PIF is totally free and no account is necessary. There are no fees, extra costs, or higher prices by using PIF. We never charge you a cent and your products don’t cost more.

Do I get to pick a charity?

×

We want your input and we encourage our community to help us choose charity organizations. Nominate your favorite organization(s) for us to review.

When do charities receive their donation?

×

We make our donations once per month. We transfer funds before the 10th business day following the close of each month.

How much money does each charity receive from PIF?

×

The amounts will vary depending on the volume of users PIF gets each month, however, our goal is to raise $1-million per month and provide that to the vetted charities each month.

Amounts under $1,000 will keep rolling over to the following month until this threshold is met.

How often does a charity receive funding?

×

We generally partner with a charity once per calendar year. This allows us to work with more charities and spread our pay it forward mindset.

Does PIF give cashback or have coupons?

×

PIF does not have a cashback program, but we will have coupons. When retailers share coupons with us, we share them with you.
