Club/Cause Income Calculator Important Information

This is a self-estimating calculator that lets any club, charity or not-for-profit enterprise (referred to from here as ‘Causes’) to estimate the potential income it may receive from member participation and support, if the variables come to reality. Rewards4Earth ™ offers no guarantees or predictions as to any income a Cause may receive, potential or actual, or if it will receive any income.

Businesses pay for marketing and many already pay an affiliate marketing commission for sales referrals. It’s from this common business marketing budget source that Rewards4Earth ™ receives the funds required to pay clubs. Research has shown this estimated (and averaged, for the ease of this calculator) 4.55% referral fee to be conservative. By combining the supporters of many different Causes into a single, purpose-driven market of consumer-supporters within the Rewards4Earth ™ platform, the affiliate commission may be individually set and negotiated by each vendor for the benefit of supporters, Causes and the Rewards4Earth ™ Foundation, the registered charity that uses its proportion of the reward to raise funds for planet-fixing projects.

“Taking into account a variety of factors, an average affiliate commission rate may be somewhere between 5% to 30%.” (source)

The reward generated by each transaction is shared between the four core beneficiaries. The Cause receives 30% of the awarded points, as do the Foundation and the Supporter. The remaining 10% is shared between the specific Earth Ambassadors micro network that signed up the business. This is part of the incentive designed to recruit businesses into the system. Rewards4Earth ™ uses 20% of the gross fees received to administer and run the platform, and provide all aspects of the system, to cover both proprietary and third party costs essential for the secure and stable running of the system, before the points are purchased and shared.

The estimate relies on a number of variables including, but not limited to, the number of supporters and/or members the Cause has, the number of participating businesses that the supporter will be able to collect Erth ™ points from and the frequency at which they will spend money at these participating businesses.

The two variables in this calculator are the “number of supporters using the system” and the “percentage of businesses that supporters will shop at”. This enables an estimate to be made as to what a Cause may expect over different time periods, all things being equal. Complete accuracy cannot be guaranteed as businesses may vary the percentage of a sale price offered for a referral sale. It is for this reason that the average percentage for this calculator has been set at 4.55%. Similarly, the percentage of businesses that supporters spend money at will vary from time to time, as will the amount of money each supporter spends at participating businesses. As such this estimator is used as a best guess estimate only. Once we have long term results showing what different clubs have actually received, we may update this calculator.

The estimated average weekly household spend, calculated to be $449, is based on figures obtained from the ABS and Moneysmart.gov websites and is based on what the average spend is in Australia. We do not suggest that supporters will spend this amount of money every week.

Rewards4Earth ™ is endeavouring to on-board more businesses via the Earth Ambassadors network so that supporters will be able to purchase from more participating businesses. We encourage all Causes to enlist partner or affiliated businesses, from all industries and sectors, to be part of the system, so that their supporters can purchase from those businesses. This has a triple benefit in that the business may achieve extra sales and revenue, the supporter may get Erth ™ points and, potentially, a better deal while the Cause may earn a small fee from every qualifying sale/transaction. The Cause may receive the same amount of Erth ™ points as the supporter and the system works on the basis of the Cause having many supporters using the system to purchase goods and services.

No guarantee or representations are made as to the income a Cause may generate using the Rewards4Earth ™ system. There is also no cost to any party: the Cause, the participating business or the supporter to join or participate, until a purchase is made at a participating business. The only cost is borne by the participating business on a PAY-per-SALE arrangement as a percentage of the sale price and, in most cases, the minimum amount payable shall be 3% of the sale price. The business payment is a mutually agreed fee for the referral of the sale by the system, benefiting the purchaser’s (supporter/member) nominated Cause.  Businesses may apply for a referral fee lower than 3%, and this will be assessed on a case by case basis, based on its value to the system and whether supporters would accept the lower amount as providing acceptable value.
