Payments to Charities on KarmaGoat
After KarmaGoat processes payment for an item, we send 80% of the purchase price to the beneficiary nonprofit. For logistical reasons, we aggregate these payments and make them on a monthly basis. We distribute funds to charities on or around the 31st of each month for all transactions occurring in the previous month. For example, all proceeds generated by sales in August would be distributed to the beneficiary causes on or around September 30th.
