FAQs

Our service is free of charge to your charity.

Comerso pays itself a proportion of the savings that will be generated at shop level.

Together we draw up a regular collection schedule, facilitating your procurement.
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.
