I know, from experience how difficult it can be managing volunteer and paid resources in a large charity which is why we take care of the administration.
We will provide you with a unique postal address, email address to add to the stamp appeal section of your website and printed material. We can then manage all the administration.
Each month you will receive a report and a cheque for the stamps sent the previous month from your fundraisers.
This covers the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) but contact us if you prefer.
We pay £10 per kilogram (1kg) of genuine unsorted stamps. If you anverage just 10 fundraisers per month sent just 2kg of stamps each, this would equate to £2,400 in donations from us for the year.
We do not charge anything for our services however if a volunteer/fundraiser sends stamps with inadequate postage, Royal Mail charge a flat fee of £1.50 to £2 plus the postage surcharge. These Royal Mail fees are deducted from your monthly cheques.
We only ever reject stamps if they have previously been sorted or picked over in any way by you or your volunteers/fundraisers. A useful barometer when assessing the quality of your stamps is whether the mix contains a good proportion of unfranked/mint stamps.If not, it is usually a sign that the batch has little commercial value as the interesting stamps have already been removed.

Once we have all the information we need, it takes no more than 3 working days.
No, but we do ask that we are given 30 days notice to withdraw from our services. Any stamps received after this date will be processed as a direct customer donation so you no longer have email or web address support but will still receive £10 per kilogram.
