The United Methodist Church*, in partnership with major online retailers, has created a shopping portal that gives your church a 1% - 9%commission for purchases made by members of your church. They can donate to our church also by booking travel, hotel room and car rental through UMCmarket.
Many consumers prefer shopping online because it saves time and gasoline, avoids crowds, provides more variety and it's easy to do. More than 80% of the online population has bought something on the Internet. In fact, it's so popular that e-commerce sales in the U.S. amounted to $289 billion last year.
All shoppers have to do is create an account and buy products and merchandise from partner retailers through UMCmarket.org. There’s no increased cost or hidden fees. They buy items for the same prices they would pay on those retailers’ sites.
UMCmarket was developed in cooperation with the General Council on Finance and Administration of The United Methodist Church.
