How it works graphic


  • You join for free and choose up to four causes to support.
  • You generate commissions by shopping online (we work with over 1,500 retailers including Amazon,, John Lewis, eBay, Sainsbury’s and Next).
  • We convert your commissions into donations for your chosen causes.  You’re raising funds for free!


  • Your existing supporters join to shop online through us, creating a new income stream at no extra cost – to you or them.
  • Every time one of your supporters buys something online via a link on TheGivingMachine, we convert the sales commission they generate into a donation for you.
  • You gain new supporters, too – by promoting yourself to our thousands of daily visitors through your free online profile and our customisable promotional material.

How is it free

TheGivingMachine is a unique registered charity that enables you to generate sales commissions with every online purchase.  We convert these commissions into free donations for the schools, charities and other community organisations you choose.


  • Customers come to you through our site for their online shopping.
  • We convert the sales commissions they generate into free donations for their chosen causes – they can make a difference as they shop with you.
  • Because of the positive experience they’ve had, customers shop here again and develop a loyalty to you. Giving through shopping becomes second nature and benefits everyone.
