For what I know, the charity organizations in my country keep a lot of money for the holidays of their CEO. So nope, I’m not going to vote for this.

I don’t think children without water in Africa really cares about if you make more sales. If they get more charity, the better. I guess if that floats your boat, you don’t opt-in, its simple.
You’re really misinterpreting my words man. Do your charity, but don’t brag or use it to gain anything.

+1 Charity is supposed to be that not something to brag about

It doesn’t matter if you donate $10 or $1000 it doesn’t make you a better person it just means you donated more

Exactly what Ruben said.

I can assure you that it feels a lot better to keep it to yourself. But once again – a business is a business and money is everything for it, I wouldn’t blame somebody for using such a technique – I disagree with it personally, but objectively, if it works then it was a good move and I shall acknowledge that decision as a good one.

Cheers.

Did you guys read this?

Then you can scratch the front page part. Contributing some percentage of items of author who opt-in, without any gain.

What do you think?

Who said anything about bragging?

Wasn’t accusing, was just repeating Ruben’s point of view to solidate it even more – thoroughly read your posts.

In that case – I think it would be a good decision aswell, definitely up for it. ;)

Cheers.

Feel free to put a “Buy this theme and we donate 10%” banner below your items but that’s completely up to you.

I don’t want to get penalised because I’d prefer to donate my money in other ways instead of taking a cut out of my sales.

I don’t like this idea. The donation should be done in other ways

I don’t like it either. If you want to donate, go ahead but why feel the need for a marketplace to implement this option when you can take 1% from your earnings and donate privately within a few seconds? Seems kinda strange to me.
