View Full Version : Donating profits - how to handle returns

11-29-2017, 12:31 PM
I am looking into donating all profits from sales made during a specific timeframe to a specific cause. But, I need to determine how to handle returns.

Would it be unethical of me to tell buyers that during this timeframe, I can only accept exchanges?

If I sell an item for $40 that cost me $20, then $20 is donated.
When the item is returned, I am theoretically -$40 until someone else buys the item.

Has anyone else donated their profits? How did you handle returns?

You need to be careful with the returns. It is already difficult to get it, you just need to sustain it. - Doug Battista (https://douglasbattista.com/)

There's something else entirely to altruistic giving than accepting tax cuts. Charges toward the year's end when your assessment consultant assists with your government form.
