Please note that BetterWorld is a social impact venture built to support the nonprofits, individuals, and businesses that serve their communities. They feel that organizations should keep 100% of what they raise. To do this, BetterWorld offers 2 optional choices for the purchaser to allow you to “Help cover fundraising costs”? or “I WANT TO COVER THE $0.40 CREDIT CARD TRANSACTION FEE”
If you are making a purchase on our raffles, you probably have seen this. We want to let you know these are option features and that by clicking the “?” mark and then “here” you can opt out. This in no way affects your purchase, chance of winning or affects the AHCO in anyway. Due to ongoing issues with SQUARE and higher fee’s with other online providers, we felt that moving to BetterWorld was our best option for us and for you.Should you have additional information, please comment or message us. Thank you for your continued support!!!American Hose Company Raffle Guidelines
