Can I use your service?
Absolutely! Everyone can use our service regardless of the country you reside in, knowledge of computers or the internet, financial situation or any other limitation.

How do people give me what I'm asking for?
At the bottom of every listing is a form. Donors simply fill this out to let us know they are interested in helping you out. Depending on what you're asking for, we will either put you in contact with them directly, or we will speak with them on your behalf.

How will I know if someone is interested in my listing?
We will contact you via e-mail.

Do I have to worry about scammers contacting me?
Not with Outrageous Requests. Unlike other companies who post your personal contact information for everyone to see, our process has the donor submit their request to us first. This process enables us to screen for legitimate donors.

How do I edit my listing?
Simply visit the Enhancement page and click on the "Add to Cart" link under Edit Listing. There is a small $3.00 charge to edit your listing; however, this also bumps your listing back to the beginning which will increase your exposure.

Can I have my listing moved back to the top?
You certainly can. For a small fee of $1.00, you may bump your listing back to the top. This increases your exposure. You may use the PayPal link below. As soon as the payment is verified, we will bump up your listing. Again, this can take up to two business days. Click here to bump your listing.

Does Outrageous Requests take a portion of donations given to me?
No we do not. The only expenses we have are the ones to keep your listing active.

Where does my listing show up?
The featured listings show on the home page and the complete list of requests are on their own page located here. This page is accessible from every page on our web site via the "All Listings" button at the top of the page. By placing this link on every page, we maximize the chance of donors viewing your listing.

What is the difference between a regular listing and a featured listing?
The regular listing only shows on the "All Listings" page and the featured listing places both on the "All Listings" pages and the home page. This give you maximum exposure.

How long does my listing stay active?
For as long as you keep your monthly subscription active. Don't be too quick to give up on your listing. You never know when the right donor will be knocking at your door.

Why was I billed again?
The agreement of the subscription is that you are billed every month. You may cancel your subscription anytime and your listing will end within 48 hours of your cancellation.

What is DonorQuest?
DonorQuest gives you the greatest chance of success. Our highly trained staffed will review your listing and actively seek out and contact potential donors for you, pleading your case.

Is DonorQuest guaranteed to result in a donor?
As much as we'd love to find a donor for every listing on our website, that isn't possible. While DonorQuest isn't 100% guaranteed, it does give you a huge leg up with us actively searching and pleading for you. This saves you time also. Please also keep in mind, while working with certain donors and companies, it may take longer to receive a response.

Can I use your service anonymously?
You sure can. When you purchase our service, you can pay with Bitcoins which are completely anonymous. Please visit weusecoins.com for more info about Bitcoins. To pay us with Bitcoins, just email us letting us know you would like to sign up using Bitcoins. Please include the title and body of your listing as well as what type of listing you would like. View our purchase page for options. You will of course need to email us so we will have that email address on file. To avoid this as well, you may use the many anonymous email services on the internet to send this. You MUST be able to receive an email back from us so please provide one that you can be reached at. We need this email address to give you the total amount to pay or your listing will NOT be added. We also do not require you give us any real information on any form you submit to us. Though again, if you expect a response back from us, we need a legit way of reaching you.

Can I accept Bitcoins as donations?
Absolutely. You simply download the official Bitcoin client from bitcoin.org and get your very own bitcoin address. Simply paste the following at the bottom of your listing:

I accept Bitcoin donations, [INSERT YOUR BITCOIN ADDRESS HERE].

For more information about bitcoins, please visit weusecoins.com.

Can I purchase a listing with Bitcoins?
We do indeed accept Bitcoins as payment. Simply let us know which package you want from our Purchase page using our Contact page. We'll send you our Bitcoin address for payment. We do not yet have a way to accept recurring payments with Bitcoins (but that is coming) so you will also need to let us know how many months you want to pay for up front. After we get those two pieces of info, we will simply send you an invoice and you can send us the Bitcoins. After we receive payment, we will send you the listing form to fill out. Within 2 business days the listing will be added for the duration you paid for. If you wish to remain anonymous, you don't need to provide any personal info other than the email on the contact page (so we can contact you when a donor wishes to give).

How do I cancel my subscription?
Not having as much luck as you'd like? If your listing has been moved down the list, your exposure goes way down. For only $1.00, you can bump your listing all the way back to the top spot. We'll let you in on a little secret, the top spot gets the most action followed closely by the next nine. Bump your listing to get ahead of the pack.

If you think back to everything else in life, you will remember that quiting has never gotten you what you want. Only the patient and persistant reap the rewards of life. Quiting never gets you there. So instead of canceling, try harder. Get your listing link in front of as many people as you can. Contact businesses in the industry that you need and send them a link to your listing for viewing. You have to earn things in life. Cyber begging is no different. You could be out on the corner for hours and hours everyday in the hot and cold doing this. Those that do are patient. They know they just need to sit there with their sign and it will happen. They don't get discouraged but stay persistant.

If you still want to cancel despite our warnings and without trying to edit or bump your listing, you may use the link below. Your subscription will be canceled and your listing removed within 24-48 hours. Credit will not be issued for partial months of service so please cancel your listing accordingly. Cancel Subscription
