TravelPledge provides your organization with a free year-round fundraising website so your supporters can purchase experiences.
Throughout the year, our generous providers discount their experiences to half off the regular retail price for "Flash Sales". When a supporter purchases a certificate on Flash Sale, a donation of up to 70% of the purchase price goes to your cause.
Access Your Flash Sale Page
Your flash sale page is simply your TravelPledge website with "/flashsale" appended to the end of it:
Replace "<short name>" with your nonprofit's short name that you provided during signup. Then, share that link with your supporters.
Customize Your Flash Sale Page
From your TravelPledge dashboard
- Navigate to the Edit My Site tab.
- Enter information about your organization, such as links to your website, address, photos and organizational description.
If you want to disable your Flash Sale page, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Receive Payment for Flash Sale Purchases
At the conclusion of the flash sale, Geronimo Solutions (TravelPledge's parent company) will mail a check to the address we have on file for your organization. To review your address:
- Navigate to Edit My Site>Information.
- Scroll down to the Contact Information section to review your address and make updates as needed.
Note: We must be able to verify the address on your homepage or Guidestar to mail a check.
The percentage of the purchase price that you keep will depend on the provider's settings who posted the certificates on flash sale. The percentage will be shown to your donors on your Flash Sale page, and it will always be between 35% and 70%.
Review Online Purchases
You can review purchases from the Details of Online Purchases report from your TravelPledge Admin Dashboard (under the Docs & Reports tab).
