Comtribute is in Beta stage. We are constantly working to increase your revenue stream by rapidly expanding our network of Search providers, merchants, ad networks and advertisers.
Actual A.R.P.S (Average Revenue Per Search) will vary for each organization according to traffic quality. Your organization’s traffic quality will be measured during the first months of service.
Actual A.R.P.S is lower in the first few months.

The standard A.R.P.S in the USA is $0.03. This number takes into account only valid searches. Any fraudulent search that might have been conducted by your users are not taken into the calculation and will harm the quality of advertisement. Tier1 Advertisers will not be willing to participate in your search portal which will create a low A.R.P.S.

  1. How long will it take for my organization's new Comtribute tools to be fully functional?
    You can start working immediately after you register, using a default toolbar and search portal that we setup for you upon registration. You can work with it as is, but we advise you to customize your toolbar and website to make them more effective.

The engagement tools ensure that the supporters continue using the system (and invite more users to join).
  3. Which search tools used by my supporters are available for making contributions?

Please note that your actual revenue does not depend on the number of searches – it depends on the amount of money that is generated from the advertisements.

  13. If I can only get 100 users, should I use Comtribute's tools?

    While 100 users does not seem like a substantial amount, even 100 users can generate more than $1,000 per year. But more importantly, our viral tools can quickly make the original 100 grow into a much larger community that generates much more. Furthermore, your supporters are likely to get more involved in your organization and contribute in additional ways.
  14. Where does the money come from?

    Comtribute specializes in transforming users daily online activities into funds. In each and every one of our platforms the revenue is not paid by Comtribute and not by your supporters but by advertisers, affiliates, merchants and search engines.  In addition Comtribute’s engaging tools encourage supporters to make donations as well (Comtribute does not take apercentage from direct donations).
    Search engines, ad providers and merchants generate billions of dollars from advertisers. Comtribute’s mission is to transfer part of these funds to your NPO’s cause.
  15. Why are search engines advertisers willing to transfer funds to NPO's?

    Our partners are willing to pay a commission for increasing traffic to their service.

Hence, they share the revenue which is generated by your supporters using their services.
  16. Do Comtribute's fundraising tools replace my current system?
    No, Comtribute does not replace traditional channels of fundraising for most organizations. The amount you raise is dependent largely on the number of contributors you attract and your continued involvement with our tools to engage supports and ensure their loyalty.

    On top of the direct income, Comtribute gives you a new communications tool that increases awareness and enhances your relationship with your supporters. And better relationships are the best way to generate additional support and more income.
