    buying/purchase

    Each buying in the shop is the charitable assistance to the monastery. (This refers to an online shop).
    Is it acceptable to use here 'buying'? Or is it better to say 'purchase'?

    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    Use "purchase". There are problems with the rest of the sentence, though. It would be better as:

    Each purchase in/from the shop provides charitable assistance to the monastery.

    Note my other changes above, marked in red.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
