It was pretty simple and easy to set up and the people who emailed back and forth were very helpful and quick. We haven't received our fundraising payout just yet but I expect it to arrive soon.

The choices for what we could sell were great! I found the system for tracking personal sales as well as group sales really easy to use, and the information provided was helpful. The prices of the products were comparable, but the shipping charges were really prohibitive. Several people who wanted to buy products decided not to because the shipping cost was really high. I'm not sure that there is much you can do about this, but I thought I would mention why we probably didn't get as many sales as we could.

Product shipped quickly and replacement for out-of-stock was given with extra product, but disappointing for some.

The product was very tasty, the only thing was the cost of shipping. Many people didn't want to support because of the shipping price.

The only negative response we received from potential customers was the cost of shipping which amounted for the loss of approximately 20-25 orders.

Customer service was impeccable. Every email I sent was answered and our profit check was delivered promptly. It was an easy to use fundraiser which was a pro, but shipping cost was a major con.

Clay was very helpful with all of my questions and was quick to send resources when needed. The online aspect of the fundraiser was VERY attractive to my program especially this year. The profit percentages were fair and allowed us to raise well over what I expected. In the future we would love to repeat this fundraiser in this same format.

I feel like Clay and his team were really attentive and provided me with all the information I needed to get people started to sell, motivating people to sell, and tracking sales. If I had a question, it was answered promptly. If I had an issue, it was addressed. The final sales report and check were delivered in a timely manner. I would work with this group again and plan on sharing contact information with the next fundraising chairperson. Thank you!

Questions about Cookie Dough Online?

How it Works

How do we raise money?

Profit is made from the purchase of every item from your store. Participants 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 participants need to register?

Registration is the most effective way to promote a Cookie Dough Online fundraiser. It's a great way to get your participants engaged in your cause.

Prior to completing the registration process, participants will be required to enter their email address. This is needed so we can send them their personalized online store link. All email addresses are kept confidential and are only used for fundraising purposes.

Once participants are registered, they’ll be able to share their unique link using text, social media, and/ or email.

As people click on a link, they will see a personalized message from the participant they’re supporting. For example, “Purchases from this site support John Doe at ABC Band”.

As the sponsor, you can track both individual and group sales progress. Besides dollars raised, you’ll be able to see who’s registered.

Getting participants 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 participants to invite people to your store. This will help your participants reach their goal.

Registered participants 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?

There are 2 ways to promote your store:

  1. Registration: By default, you will be provided a link to forward to your participants. Once they click on it and register, they will receive their own unique online store link via email. They can then share their link with others using social media, text, and/ or email.
  2. Direct Link: Or, as an option we can create 1 unique group link that would bypass the registration process. Your group would be able to share this link with their friends and family.

    Or, register and obtain your own unique link first. Then share that link with your entire group. Participants would be able to share your link with their friends and family.

By promoting a direct link, you would only be able to track sales as a group, not by individual sellers. You would also not be able to use our prize programs.

Online Ship to Group Orders

Another limitation with a single store link is getting items to online customers who choose the ‘ship to group’ option. Normally when participants register and send out their own unique links and customers make a purchase, orders are automatically tied to a particular seller.

Any items then ship to the group already packed inside the seller’s box with their other brochure items. Participants then deliver these items to their customers.

But with the single link option, you will need to let any ‘ship to group’ buyers know to pick up their order because it won’t be associated with any seller.

Is money collected with each order?

There is no in person ordering or money collection. Participants generate sales when the people they invite buy items from your store.

Can participants track their own sales?

Yes, participants will be able to log into their portal anytime and see their sales updates.

Are there any fees?

There are no setup fees or costs to run a Cookie Dough Online fundraiser.

Can participants earn prizes?

Motivating your participants 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:

  1. Cash
  2. Prizes

You’ll receive your prize flyer via email before your kickoff. After your sale is over, we add the total cash amount to your profit check. If you choose a traditional prize plan, we ship your prizes to your group address.

We send you a sales report showing your participants names and how much they sold. Prizes are shipped with a reference list that matches prizes with participants.

You’ll receive access to your sales reports showing your participants names and how much they sold. Prizes are shipped with a reference list that matches prizes with participants.

There is no cost to the group for our prize programs.

Do participants 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 soon can we start?

After you submit our start a fundraiser form you’ll receive an agreement to sign. It will then take at least 3-5 business days to process your order and set up your store.

Once we send you your participant registration instruction steps, your store is live. We recommend that you have an official kickoff meeting so everyone starts at the same time.

If you can't meet in person, consider using an online communication technology. Examples include Zoom, Cisco Webex, GoToMeeting and Google Hangouts.

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.

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.

Making Sales

Is there a minimum order?

There are no minimum order requirements.

Can we track our sales?

Before your Cookie Dough Online sale you'll receive access to your sales dashboard. You’ll be able to see:

  • Who’s registered
  • Orders and units sold by seller
  • Amount raised by seller and group

How do we receive our money?

Your profit check is processed within 15 business days of the close of your store. If also using ‘ship to group’, checks are processed within 15 business days of the close of your store or within 5 business days of shipment, whichever is later.

What is our profit?

Your profit percentage is based on how many items your group sells:

Items Sold Profit
1-9 25%
10-29 30%
30-49 35%
50+ 40%

(For a quick estimate on how many items you may sell, multiply the number of participants in your group by 5)

Can we accept donations?

There is no donation option for a Cookie Dough Online fundraiser.

Can buyers credit more than 1 participant?

No. The online store is set up so that only 1 participant receives credit for a particular sale.

What about sales tax?

There is no sales tax charged for online sales.

Shipping

How soon do orders ship out?

Orders generally ship within 5-7 business days after purchase.

Where do orders ship to?

Product ships from our Louisiana warehouse to all lower 48 states. All items ship direct to the buyer.

Who pays the shipping fee?

Customers pay a shipping fee at checkout to have their order shipped direct to them. Shipping rates are determined by FedEx based on quantity and weight of items ordered. There are no added processing fees.

Cookie dough is a very dense product and requires special handling because it ships frozen. The cost of shipping is therefore typically higher than for the average product.

Freight costs vary and will depend on the weight and zip code of the destination. Prices are dictated by our 3rd party carriers. Their rates are subject to change at any time.

Ship to Group Option

To help cover any shipping fees for your online customers, you can add a ‘ship to group’ option to your store. People can then choose to pay a fee and have items shipped to them, or not pay and have their order shipped to your group.

We then combine all ‘ship to group’ orders and ship them together to your location after your sale is over.

Ship to Group Fees

The goal is to get more people to buy by offering them free shipping for online orders. But 'ship to group' is not free to your organization. We'll deduct the cost to ship your order from your profit check.

The average shipping cost per item is much lower for one large order than for individual orders. The cost is based on the distance from our warehouse as well as the size and weight of the order.

Both 'ship to group' and 'ship to home' orders factor into the item total. The more 'ship to home' items you have, the lower your 'ship to group' shipping cost.

Size of Order

For orders of 36 items or less, we'll ship your order to your group bulk and only pass on the shipping charge. If you end up selling 37-249 items we charge $170 to pack orders by participant, plus shipping.

For orders of 250-499 items, we charge 75¢ per item to prepack your orders. You will also be charged the shipping fee.

You will only pay the 75¢ per item packing fee once you sell 500 or more items. There will be no shipping fee.

Bulk Orders

'Ship to group' orders greater than 36 items are prepacked and labeled by seller. We do not recommend bulk shipping for larger orders. You would not have to pay the packing fee, but you would have to order each flavor by the full case.

So for example, if you initially ordered only 1 of a particular flavor you would have to accept and pay for the extra 5. Bulk orders only come in full cases of 6 regardless of the flavor.

Even though you could sell the extra items and raise more money, the upfront cost could be significant.

Shipping Cost Breakdown

Here is the cost based on how many items are shipped to the group:

Items Sold Prepack / Bulk Packing Fee Shipping Fee
1-36 Bulk $20 Yes
37-249 Prepack $170 Yes
250-499 Prepack 75¢ per item Yes
500+ Prepack 75¢ per item No

'Ship to group' is not automatically included as part of a Cookie Dough Online sale. Thus you will need to let us know if you want this option included. You can do so by putting "Add ship to group" in the comments section before you submit your start a fundraiser form.

How are product issued handled?

For questions about orders, customers will be instructed to email customer service.
