MediaMedia CentreWhat is Froggybank?
Froggybank is an online consumer community. Our members get paid for their usual shopping online.
Online Shoppers spend billions a year using various websites. Most websites keep the referral commission they earn from the retailer, but we pass on 100% of middleman's fee back to our members as cashback.
Our members can decide to keep the money or donate a proportion or all of it to charity or cause of their choice. They will have the option of offsetting their carbon emissions through their earnings, by buying carbon credits from approved organisations.
We partner with more than 1500 online retailers, supermarkets, fashion stores and service providers including Currys, Comet, Dixons, M&S, PCWorld, Boots, WHSmith, BT, Tesco and John Lewis.
Fundraisers and charities can also sign-up to our site and create their own fundraising page. They can earn £2.50 for each member they refer in addition to potential for ongoing donations from all our members.
With internet shopping worth more than £24 billion a year and estimated to reach 25% of all retail sales by 2009, the earning and fundraising potential is enormous. We aim to raise millions for good causes.Charity Shopping with a Difference
Unlike some charity shopping sites, our site has the incentive for members to keep coming back to shop from more than 1500 retailers and donate. Our members can also keep some of the cash and donate flexibly.
This means charities have more chance of getting ongoing donations.
We are the only portal in the UK (and the rest of the world as far as we know) to offer 100% of the commissions to our members with a carbon offset and flexible donation facility.How much can online shoppers earn?
Please see the "how much can I earn" cashback calculator on the right menu for example savings.
Examples include £70 cashback for getting a Home Insurance from Churchill, 3% cashback for purchases from Dell, £120 cashback from Sky, £60 for buying a mobile phone contract from Dial-a-phone etc.Where does the money come from?
The money we pay our members and charities comes from the advertising budget of the retailer.
Retailers spend billions a year on online marketing and pay commissions to websites for referring sales. This is the money we pay as cashback, donate to charities or offset carbon.About us
