Is this in place of buying a share package or in addition to?
We envision that you sign up for the Sustainer membership, say, with the $5,000 Sockeye Sustainer, and then use that to purchase a share, which would then give you an additional 5%. You would also get the 5% for seasonal sales and anything else we offer for purchase, except another Sustainer membership. This would be 10%, of course, for the $10,000 King Sustainer level.
Is this a one-time investiture or do you anticipate this being an ongoing source of funding?
Right now, we are planning to offer these to our members once a year. For each member, we would anticipate them doing this only once, until their money was gone, but assuming this program works well, we could imagine ourselves offering a renew option in the future.
What is the duration of the membership? Is it a specific time period, i.e., one year/season?
There is no time limit to these memberships. Take as long as you need to spend your account. We had assumed that the $5,000 would take 3-5 years to use.
Given that you are describing it as a pre-paid account, that suggests to me that the entire $5,000 is available to me until it is depleted, but I don't want to assume anything. Is this the case?
That is correct. Once you put the $5,000 in, it's yours to use until it’s depleted. If you ever feel like you need the money back, refunds are available in 30 days.
Would it be possible to share a membership? For example, could we share our membership with one of our children? I'm not speaking of gifting them their own membership, but rather both our households being able to order from the same prepaid account. I understand we would have to monitor our own half-use of the membership if sharing it is possible.
Yes, we are happy to set up an account that you share, or, that multiple people can use.
Are Sustainer accounts only for share enrollments?
No, This balance can be used towards one time shipments, seasonal sale offers, Farmers Market fish by the pound, and company events as well.
