Believe Online Fundraiser QuestionsAnswers to questions about Believe Online
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Profit is made from the purchase of every item from your store. Students can invite family and friends to shop once they register. Invitations are sent via social media, text, and/ or email.
Your group receives a profit off every sale made from your store.
Do students need to register?
Registration is the only way to promote a Believe Online fundraiser. It's also a very effective way to get your students engaged in your cause. As students register, they’ll be able to share their unique link using text, social media, and/ or email.
This takes people to your store where a ‘Reason to Support’ button appears above the name of your group. Your purpose is displayed once the supporter clicks the button. This way, they can see the reason for your fundraiser. This helps personalize your cause. For example, “With your help, we'll reach our $2,000 goal for new band equipment.”
Both you and your sellers can track their sales. Students will be able to see how many supporters they have, social shares, and money they've help raise. Sponsors can track things like:
- Student share activity
- Registered students
- Sales updates
- Items sold
Getting students to register is key to your success. You can enhance sales by setting individual seller goals based on your group’s needs.
(Use the ‘Calculate Your Profit’ calculator at the top of the page to determine your profit)
Be sure to track your fundraiser progress and remind students to invite people to your store. This will help your students reach their goal.
Registered students will also be eligible to earn credit towards prizes. We encourage groups to supplement the prize program we offer with additional incentives.
Do we get our own link?
You will not receive a unique link. Rather, once students register, they’ll receive their own shopping link. They’ll be able to email, or text their link direct from their dashboard, and share on social media.
Do students collect orders and money?
There is no in person ordering or money collection. Students generate sales when the people they invite buy items from your store.
Are there any fees?
There are no setup fees or costs to run a Believe Online fundraiser.
Can students earn prizes?
Motivating your students with prizes can improve sales. It’s important that you promote your incentives throughout your sale. This will keep your group motivated.
We offer 2 prize program options:
You’ll receive a sales report showing your students names and how much they sold. Prizes are shipped with a reference list that matches prizes with students.
There is no cost to the group for our prize programs.
Do students get a brochure to show?
Because this is an online fundraiser there are no brochures. Before your sale, you’ll receive a registration instruction steps email. Be sure to forward it to your sellers.
How long is the fundraiser?
By default, we set your end date 2 weeks after your start date. You can always change your end date. Simply let us know before your sale ends.
Or, let us know up front when you want your store to close.
When is our store live?
Once we send you your student registration instruction steps, your store is live. We recommend that you schedule an official kickoff meeting date and time.
If you can't meet in person, consider using an online communication technology. Examples include Zoom, Cisco Webex, GoToMeeting and Google Hangouts.
Do you only work with schools?
No, we work with non-school groups as well. Examples include church groups, sports leagues, and dance organizations.
Can we use more than 1 store at a time?
No. You must choose 1 store. For example, ‘Goodies & Gifts’ cannot be run at the same time as ‘Popcornopolis Online’. You can always run a second online fundraiser after the first one is over.
Do you only work with groups?
Yes. Your group must have at least 5 participants.
Is there a minimum order?
There are no minimum order requirements.
Can we track our sales?
Before your Believe Online sale you'll receive access to your online store dashboard. You’ll be able to see several things, including:
- Students who have registered
- Their social share activity
- Sales progress
How do we receive our money?
Your profit check is processed within 15 business days of the close of the store.
What is our profit?
Your profit percentage is based on how many items your group sells:
Can we accept donations?
Yes, we accept donations in $20 increments. The group receives 75% profit on donations.
Can buyers credit more than 1 student?
Yes. For example, parents can add the student code or student’s name when shopping. They can also add more students from their dashboard by clicking on the “+” symbol.
How soon do orders ship out?
Orders generally ship within 2 business days after purchase.
Where do orders ship to?
Product ships from our Colorado warehouse to all lower 48 states.
