The fundraising was easy and it was easy to get most of our group to sign up for their online account. This was a fundraiser that was easy to manage without a lot of hassle for sponsors or my students.
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Profit is made from the purchase of every item from your store. Once participants register, they’re able to invite family and friends to shop. Invitations are sent out via social media, text, and/ or email.
Your group receives a profit off every sale.
Do participants need to register?
Registration is the best way to promote a Crazy Socks Online fundraiser. Once registered, participants can invite friends and family to your online store using text, social media, and/ or email. They’ll also be able to log into their sales portal anytime and track their sales.
Once potential supporters arrive at your store, the participant’s name and group appear at the top of the page. This helps to personalize your fundraiser. For example, “Welcome to ABC High School Band.”
Supporters will also see how much money the group has raised so far as well as the end goal. The name of the participant they’re supporting and how much they’ve raised is also shown.
From your sponsor portal, you can view both individual and group sales progress. You’ll also be able to see how many participants have registered and the number of unique visitors they've had.
Getting participants to register is vital 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 shop. This will encourage them to reach their goal. Participants can track their own sales when logged into their portal.
Registered sellers 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?
There are 2 ways to promote your store:
- Registration: By default, you’ll receive your school ID number. Participants will need it to register, obtain their unique link, and then share it with others using social media, text, and/ or email.
- Quick Registration: Or, as an option we will send you a link that you can provide to your participants to forward to their family and friends. Supporters would only need to enter your school ID # and then your group name or a student that they want to support. Your sellers would not need to register.
By using quick registration, you would only be able to track sales as a group, not by individual seller. You would also not be able to use our prize programs.
Online Ship to Group Orders
Another limitation to sellers not registering 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 Crazy Socks Online fundraiser.
Can participants earn prizes?
Motivating your group with prizes can improve sales. It’s important that you promote your incentives throughout your sale. This will keep your participants motivated to keep sharing with others.
We offer 2 prize program options:
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 payment. If you choose a traditional prize plan, we ship your prizes to your group address.
You’ll receive a sales report showing your participants names and how much they sold. You’ll be able to compare this information with your prize flyer.
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, we email you the steps to get started. Be sure to forward this information 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.
Your store does not turn on until your start date. 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 would like 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 Crazy Socks 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 Crazy Socks Online sale you'll receive access to your online store dashboard. Among other things, you’ll be able to track:
- The number of participants who have registered
- How unique visitors each participant has had
- Individual participant and group sales progress
How do we receive our money?
Your profit payment is processed within 15 business days of the closing of your store. Profit payments for fundraisers with ‘ship to group’ orders are processed within 5 business days after your order ships.
What is our profit?
Your profit percentage is based on how many items your group sells:
You receive 75% of online donations.
A $50 administrative fee will be deducted from your profit if your group sells fewer than 50 items.
Can we accept donations?
Yes, your Crazy Socks Online store will be set up to accept donations. You make 75% of the donated amount.
Donations do not count towards items sold when determining your group's final profit percentage.
Can buyers credit more than 1 participant?
No. Participants need to register individually. Each participant has their own login and sharing options.
What about sales tax?
There is no sales tax charged for online orders except for California residents on taxable items. Sales tax only applies to nonfood items.
How soon do orders ship out?
Orders generally ship within 3-5 business days after purchase.
How are customers notified about their order?
Customers receive a confirmation email when they place their order. A notification email is sent once their order ships.
Where do orders ship to?
Product ships from our California 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.Ship to Group Option
To help cover any shipping fees for online customers, you can add a ‘ship to group’ option to your store. These orders will ship together to your location after your sale is over.
The group pays the cost to ship any items to their address. We'll deduct this amount from your profit payment.
'Ship to group' is not automatically included as part of a Crazy Socks 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.
NOTE: We only recommend this option for buyers who live close to you.
How are product issued handled?
For questions about orders, customers will be instructed to submit a form online.
