We think it is important for us to be completely transparent with you and to explain why we sometimes reduce our prices through sales and promotions and how this has a positive impact in our fight against poverty.
Donated | Second-hand Store
Like most retailers, our sales are a fantastic way to attract new customers to our Oxfam Online shop and give us a vital boost in revenue which increases the impact of our life-changing work.
Also, we want to make sure there’s always something new to discover in our online shop so we sometimes make room by reducing items which have been on the site for a longer period.
Brand new | Sourced by Oxfam
When we have an offer on our Sourced by Oxfam products, the increase in revenue through sales helps us invest further in the people who make our products, enabling them to begin work on our next collection.
It is very important to us that the discounts you receive on these products do not affect our producers; their wage and livelihood, and we ensure that any discounts are not passed down.
