Candles Online Fundraiser QuestionsAnswers to questions about Candles 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?
There is no registration required for a ‘Candles Online’ fundraiser. We set up your store and provide you with a unique store link. Your group can share the link and invite people they know to shop.
Once supporters arrive at your store, they’ll see a personalized welcome. For example, “Welcome to our ABC High School Band Store!"
Supporters will also see the start and end dates for the sale and the group ID number. The ID number needs to be entered by the buyer at checkout. This ensures that your group receives credit for the sale.
Sponsors will be able to track:
- The number of sales made
- How much money they’ve raised
You can grow your 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. When your students reach their individual goals, your group succeeds.
Students will also be eligible to win prizes. We encourage groups to supplement the prize program we offer with additional incentives.
Do we get our own link?
Yes. You’ll receive your own online store link.
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 ‘Candles 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:
Students need to remind supporters to enter their name at checkout. This will ensure they receive credit for the sale.
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, we email you the steps to get started. Be sure to forward them 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 would like your store to close.
When is our store live?
Once we send you your ‘how to get started’ instruction steps, your store is live. We recommend that you schedule a kickoff meeting date and time with your students.
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 ‘Candles Online’ sale you'll receive access to your online store dashboard. You’ll be able to see:
- Orders received each day
- Retail 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?
