Volcanoes.ca runs on a non profit basis. We currently operate at a small loss and it will likely stay that way!
We do, however, get a small sales commission (paid by Amazon in the form of a certificate to be used at Amazon) for each book or other item sold through our pages. Buying a book (and/or CD's, movies, electronics, software, etc.) through the Volcanoes.ca Bookstore costs no more (or less) than buying directly through Amazon's own website; the difference is that if you buy through us, the referral fees generated will be donated directly to the International Volcano Monitoring Fund .
