Favourable Group operates as a fundraising and earnings distribution platform while adhering to New Zealand’s legal requirements and regulations, including tax compliance, customer verification, and dispute resolution processes.


Platform Usage Fees: We charge a percentage-based fee on the total funds raised by campaigns on our platform. This fee is typically transparent and can vary depending on the specific plan or package chosen by campaign organizers, which are visible on our home page.

Transaction Processing Fees: In addition to our platform usage fees, there may be transaction processing fees associated with Stripe for handling payment transactions. These fees are typically a percentage of the transaction amount and/or a fixed per-transaction fee.

Subscription Plans: In the future, we may offer subscription plans to campaign organizers or users who require additional features, services, or premium support. These plans are typically priced on a monthly or annual basis.

Fund Withdrawal Fees: We take a percentage of funds withdrawn to cover transaction processing & service fees.

Currency Conversion Fees: If transactions involve multiple currencies, there may be currency conversion fees applied to ensure the proper exchange rates are maintained.

We will work diligently to ensure proper reporting and compliance with tax authorities in New Zealand.

Customer-Vetting Process:

User Verification: To create an account on our platform and complete the checkout process, users are required to provide verifiable information, including their name, email address, and, in some cases, government-issued identification. This process helps ensure the authenticity of user accounts.

User Verification Group: Users can have a verified members group badge displayed on their profile after providing a mobile number, billing address & recent government issued letter with the date, your name & mailing address clearly displayed. You must be a member of this group before we will consider publishing any fundraising campaigns you submit.

Campaign Organizer Verification: For campaign organizers, we implement a more thorough vetting process. This may involve verifying their identity, conducting background checks, and assessing the legitimacy of their project or campaign. We may request additional documentation and information to establish their credibility.

Compliance Checks: We adhere to all relevant regulatory requirements, including Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations. We may request additional information or documentation from users or campaign organizers to comply with these regulations.

Ongoing Monitoring: We continuously monitor user activity and campaigns to identify any suspicious behavior or irregularities. This helps us maintain a safe and trustworthy environment for all users.

User Reporting: We encourage users to report any suspicious or fraudulent activities they encounter on our platform. We take these reports seriously and investigate them promptly.

By implementing these pricing structures and rigorous customer-vetting processes, we aim to ensure a secure, transparent, and reliable experience for all users and campaign organizers on our fundraising platform.

Refunds on our platform can be credited directly to the user’s wallet. However, standard transaction fees may still apply to cover payment processing costs to withdraw the refund from your wallet.

Disputes are addressed through a structured process. Users can initiate disputes, and our support team will mediate between the parties involved, aiming for an amicable resolution. If a resolution cannot be reached, we may escalate the dispute to a higher authority or employ an independent third-party mediator, ensuring fair and impartial handling of disputes.
