Do I have to sign a contract (is there a fee to cancel)?
You can cancel TAGG anytime without penalty. We have you sign a business agreement, but you are not locked into a contract.
Do I need to train my staff?
TAGG requires minimal training. We provide a training sheet for your new employees, and recommend you display it somewhere employees regularly see to remind them of what TAGG is and how it works. It is up to the business to supply the QR codes for customers to scan OR simply ask all TAGG customers to use the receipt capture option.

TAGG accepts credit card, check, or you can authorize us to electronically debit your bank account.
Can I set a cap on the 5% donation?
Businesses with large transaction potential may set a cap on their donations. For example, if you are a car dealer, you could donate 5% of a new car purchase up to $50 or $100.
Can I still donate to my favorite causes outside of TAGG?
Yes of course. Many businesses on TAGG still directly donate to causes they care about, while others donate only through TAGG.
How much of the 5% donation goes to the cause selected?
85% of it is directly passed onto the customer’s selected cause. There is no cost for a cause to register and raise funds through TAGG, however TAGG does retain 15% of what is raised. This went into effect July 1, 2016.
Is there a limit to the number of businesses per category that can participate?
TAGG limits service businesses to 10 per service category per year (for example Realtors, Mortgage Lenders, Chiropractors, etc.)
The 10 businesses in each category must remain active by having TAGG activity to secure their spot for the following year. When a category is full, TAGG will keep a wait list in the order of inquiry received and will get you registered as soon as there is an opening. To be added to the waitlist, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can a business be exclusive on the app within their category?
At this time, TAGG is currently offering exclusivity only in certain service categories on a case by case basis, only when requested. To qualify for exclusivity, a business must be able to cover an entire market area with your service, and must purchase at least 5 spots.
