I am shocked because I gave several thousand euros and I feel deceived by Animalwebaction which did not explain clearly that a commission was taken on our donations. I thought that only advertising allowed the site to live.
I just started a petition to ask the website : https://www.thepetitionsite.com/fr-fr/468/885/935/up-to-62-commission-on-donations-i-feel-cheated-by-animalwebaction.com/
- drastically reduce your commission on donations or give users the option to leave the commission they want (as Hello Asso does)
- to clearly indicate on each fundraising the commission taken by the site, the price of the products and the price of resale.
- deliver to the associations the products already financed even if the collection did not arrive at 100%. It is unacceptable to put so much pressure on Internet users with the fear of seeing animals die! For kibble for dogs, it is quite possible to send a party to the animals without additional cost and without this posing a logistical problem!
- publish the invoices of the different products that the site buys for the animals (with the suppliers' contact details).
A class action is pending against the site to give animals this huge commission on our donations. I invite you to sign my petition, share it and send e-mails to help us win. Everything is explained in the petition.
I'm shocked. The Animalwebaction.com site has abused my love of animals to take a lot of commissions on my donations.
If you had known that the website took 62% of our donations, would you have done it?
Thank you for helping me, I do not know what else to do.
Michelle, I have signed and will share for more signatures. I totally understand that there are costs that charities have to cover but 62%? That is a very high amount and I'd like to thank you for bringing this to our attention. I sincerely hope that when you send the petition in you do receive a response and would appreciate you letting us know when you do.
Many thanks and to this group and care2.
I signed Michelle 's petition on Wendy's click group. Thank you so much Michelle. But I do the daily Click To Donate. What about those sites ? Janine is right. Even with all the costs covered, isn't 62 % cut makes one sceptical of the intention of the NGO s.
Michelle, I signed your petition and thank you so much for bringing this issue to light. If an organization's overhead is 62% of its income, I would say they need new management. Not having that fact openly and plainly stated is fraudulent. Please let us know what the outcome is.
Again...thank you for bringing this to us and Good Luck!!!

Wow, thank you Michelle for letting us know. I've signed your petition and will also share it with friends. I had no idea and I've donated as well.
