Thriftify is a social enterprise. Our mission is to unite the world’s charity retailers with a vision of one mammoth online charity retailer. By using technology and e-commerce we are enabling charities to be successful online. Charities are already winning on the street, with new charity shops opening all the time and more people shopping from them. The next step for the charity retail sector is to achieve success online. Achieving success online isn’t just about selling things online. It’s about using all of the tools and technology that the internet provides to drive sales. Thriftify enables charities to value products, drive footfall to their local shops, use data to increase sales and most importantly, to be successful on the online marketplace.

 

As a social enterprise, we are on a mission to help charities generate the true value of their donations. By valuing and selling things online, charities can hundreds of millions of euro more every year. But as with all good ideas, there’s a challenge – the online environment is becoming more and more complex. To be successful online businesses need to be creative, competitive, data-driven, media friendly, social and so much more. Thriftify enables charities to easily access all of this expertise. Our platform is a custom built tool specifically for charity shops. We’ve combined the critical elements of e-commerce in to an easy to use platform. Our platform automatically values, prices and uploads the items for sale. Not only that but we also market the product to make sure it reaches that niche who prefer to buy from charity shops.

 

Thriftify has taken all of the complexities and challenges of selling online and combined them to create the charity retail platform. As a social enterprise you can rest assured that you’re getting the most competitive rates. All of the fees and commission we charge are used to improve the platform – meaning that you’re getting the best possible value for money. Thriftify is currently available to charity retailers with a large volume of books – our platform is currently enabling our users to grow the size of their book business up to tenfold.
