How does Comerso work?
We work with you to verify your charity’s approvals and take an inventory of the equipment you have available.
We equip your charity with Comerso digital tools.
Transport is provided according to our HCP (Health Control Plan) so as to ensure the health security of goods from the collection point through to your charity.
The frequency of visits is agreed according to needs and potential.
We train your volunteers to use our digital tools, allowing for continuous traceability of goods.
At the month end, we ask you to check donations certificates via e-signing for direct transmission to our customers.
Shop/business donations are variable by nature. That is the very principle of donations. With a Comerso partnership established over time, you are always assured that you will have a wide range of high-quality goods.
Comerso collections can complement your current activities. You therefore benefit from an additional volume of high-quality goods. The training that we provide in donor shops allows you, in practice, to have a low “scrappage rate” of about 7%.
You have nothing to produce at your end. Midway through the month, we send you the previous month’s donation certificates electronically so that you can validate them. Those certificates are 100% compliant with the legislation applicable.
