Online marketplace Shopless is set to team up with charities in New Zealand to help fight climate change and help refugees.
The company said it will contribute 20 per cent of its revenue to non-profit organisations across the country, including ChangeMakers, Kaicycle, New Zealand Red Cross and Forest & Bird. Customers can choose which charity benefits from their spending.
“Global warming is a serious threat to our civilisation and there are a lot of people in need all around the world,” said Hooman Bahraini, CEO of Shopless. “We have decided to do what we can to help these causes.”
Shopless is an online marketplace where users can post ads and list their products or services for free. Its business model is to charge for promotions, which means users can boost their listing for an additional fee so a larger audience can see its ads.
