Amazon Affiliate Program
Do you shop on Amazon.com?
A percentage of your spending, on almost everything you purchase, will go to supporting The Catholic Community of Pleasanton. Amazon will pay commission of 4% to 25% of sales to The Catholic Community of Pleasanton with the percentage increasing with the more items shipped and depending on the types of items purchased!
The only thing you need to do to participate in this fundraiser is bookmark this Affiliate Link and save this page as your Amazon bookmark. Then every time you want to shop at Amazon, simply use your Amazon bookmark. If you shop directly on Amazon, without using our Affiliate Link, we will not get a percentage back. You can also click the image to the left or on our homepage to go to Amazon and we will receive a percentage of the sale.
Don't forget that you can also buy Amazon gift cards and use the gift cards to pay for purchases made with our Affiliate Link to increase our stewardship!
If you have any questions about this program, please contact email@example.com.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will I pay more for my items if I purchase them through this program?
A: No, you will not spend anymore than you ordinarily would spend! Amazon pays advertising fees for driving traffic to its site; typically, these fees go to Google or Bing — why not share them with The Catholic Community of Pleasanton instead?
Q: Does this affect how I log into my account? Can I still use my Amazon Prime membership?
A: No, making purchases through the above link does not affect how you login, and YES! You can still use your Amazon Prime benefits for free shipping, etc.
Q: If I purchase items on Amazon through a 3rd party vendor, will The Catholic Community of Pleasanton receive a commission?
A: Yes, purchasing used books and other items through 3rd party vendors still allows The Catholic Community of Pleasanton to receive the commission.

Q: Are purchases anonymous?
A: Yes, all purchases through the above link are still anonymous. No one from The Catholic Community of Pleasanton will see the names of customers using this program, their credit card information, items in your purchase, or any other personal information.
Q: Why Amazon? What about other online retailers?
A: Amazon is by far the largest online retailer, offers the most lucrative benefits to its Associates, and provides a program that is simple to implement and use, so it made sense to start this program with them. As we gain experience, we will evaluate adding other retailers to this program as well.
Q: Why are we doing this now?
A: For many years we've used cooperative programs with merchants such as Scrip and gift cards as a means to support the parish. As people move to more and more online shopping, this is a natural extension of those programs. Its has the added benefit of being extremely simple to use. Other Catholic parishes around the country have implemented this program with much success.
