how it works

  1. Reach Out. Email us at info@azizilife.com and we will email you "Bazaar Calculator"- our latest product list for bazaar sales.
  2. Choose your products. Using the Bazaar Calculator, you select the products you would like to sell, with a minimum order of $300. If we run out of stock, we will select similar products of the same value to act as substitutes for the ones you have chosen. The products are mailed to your address for the set mailing charge of $40, no matter where you are located in the continental US. Since you don’t have to pay until after your sale, we’ll keep your credit card number on reference until we receive your payment.
  3. Sell. Whether you are setting up a table at a community craft fair or holding your own event, customers will be wowed by the beauty and quality of your products. We’ll provide you with downloadable marketing materials and a slide show that you can use during your craft sale. Included in these materials is a price list for your customers. At the prices we have suggested on this sheet, you will earn 35% to 65% on every product sold (excluding the mailing costs) and your customers will also benefit from shopping at a discount off our normal website prices.
  4. Pay. There is no need to send us payment until you have had your craft event. After your sale simply mail us a check for the value of the products you selected plus $40 for the mailing. In purchasing the Fundraising Bazaar Package, you agree to send payment within 60 days of receiving the package. If we have not received payment within 60 days, we’ll get in touch with you; Azizi Life does reserve the right to charge your credit card for the cost of your products after 60 days. Please note that as we are already selling this fundraising pack at the lowest possible price, it is not possible to return any unsold products. However, since your purchase price is so low, you have lots of room to provide great discounts to tempt more customers in, and still cover all of your costs.
  5. Voila! You have supported your cause while at the same time promoting fair trade livelihoods in Rwanda!
