With Business Giving, you can give recipients the flexibility to select their preferred item and eliminate the need for manual processes such as placing and unboxing orders.

FAQs

  • ACH and Credit/Debit Cards can be used to prefund vouchers and vouchers must be paid for before they are sent. There are two options for administrators:

    - Pay as You Go: This option allows you to pay only for the vouchers that you send out with initial campaign set up and you can come back to the campaign at any time to add and pay for additional vouchers, as needed. 
    - Pay for Total Program Upfront: This option allows you to attach funds to your campaign to be used at any time and you can allocate some funds to vouchers in initial campaign set up. Remaining funds will stay attached to the campaign for later use. When you come back to add more vouchers to the campaign, you will draw from those funds without having to go back through checkout. 

  • Recipients will receive an email from Amazon inviting them to redeem their voucher. From this email, they will be directed to your pre-curated catalog where they can choose their items and checkout. If the order total is more than the available voucher balance, recipients can cover the remaining balance using their own payment methods.

  • Recipients can manage and return their orders using Amazon's return process, either through the Amazon website or by reaching out to Amazon's customer service. Orders are subject to standard Amazon.com Returns Policy.

  • In general, recipients will be charged taxes on their purchases. If an organization has a valid tax exemption on file in the account where the voucher is being redeemed, and that purchase qualifies for tax exemption, recipients will not be charged tax.
