What Our Customers Say
To the recollection of myself and the other adult moderator, it seems that the sample products we saw online were more robust and diverse than what we actually wound up from being able to sell. Having purchased myself, I honestly think that there was a significant mark up on the product which would account for the organization being able to make 40% of the profit.
We are using the money made from the fundraiser to pay for our royalties, scripts and other materials for the play we will be doing this year, Moana Jr.
5 stars! Excellent! So friendly and willing to answer my many many questions.
Clay was very helpful from start to finish.
The customer rep was very prompt to answer all my emails and phone calls. I could also keep up with sales totals simply by going to the website to look.
It was a fine experience overall.
I don't think I will do a fundraiser any other way again! I really appreciated the ease of the entirely online, hands-off sales process. Neither the students or myself had to handle the money or deliveries-- everything was handled online and shipped directly to customers. For only a 2 week fundraiser with my small class of 10 students, we profited over $650.00!
We were able to have the online fundraiser for our school and the online store had a variety of items for purchase at great prices. We were raising funds for our Parent/Teacher Organization that benefits our students and teachers significantly.
This online catalog fundraiser was so easy, and raised an impressive amount of money for my small class of only 10 students! The items shipped very quickly, and all of the people I have spoken to after receiving their products have been very happy!
Products were good. Convenient options especially during covid.
Products were good and prices fair but the customer service was excellent. We worked with Clay and he was always available with quick responses and very helpful when we had questions. We would love to work with him again.
It was 100% online. This was perfect in a year where a majority of the students were virtual.
It was super easy to do this sale, since everyone could simply send out information on how to access the catalog to their friends and family via email, text, post, etc.
We had a great experience. Clay was very helpful and was very quick to respond to any questions we had. We are very satisfied.
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Groups raise money when supporters buy items from their online store. Once participants register, they can invite family and friends to shop. Invitations go out via social media, text, and/ or email and groups receive a profit off every sale.
Your online store will include additional items not found in the brochure.
Do participants need to register?
Registration is the best way to promote a Gifts & More 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, “Purchases from this page will be credited to John Doe in support of ABC High School Band.”
Getting participants to register is vital if you want to reach your goal. Once you know how much money your group needs, you can set your individual seller goal.
(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 your group to invite people to shop. Participants can also track their own sales when logged into their portal.
Registered sellers 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:
- Registration: By default, you’ll receive your program 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.
- Direct Link: Or, you as the sponsor can first register and obtain your unique link. Then share that link with your entire group. Participants would be able to share your link with their friends and family.
By promoting your direct link, you would only be able to track sales as a group, not by individual sellers. Your group 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 face to face selling or money collection. Participants receive credit for 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 Gifts & More Online fundraiser.
Can participants earn prizes?
Motivating your participants by using incentives can improve sales. We offer 2 prize program options:
We email your prize flyer to you before your kickoff. Be sure to forward it to your participants and discuss. It’s important that you continue to promote your prizes throughout your sale. This will keep your group motivated.
After your sale is over, we add the total cash amount to your profit check. Or, 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. 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, we email you the steps to get started to pass onto 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 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 ‘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 Gifts & More Online sale, you'll receive access to your online store dashboard. You’ll be able to see who's sent emails and view sales updates.
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:
(For a quick estimate on how many items you may sell, multiply the number of participants in your group by 5)
You receive 70% of online donations. Donations do not count towards items sold when determining group profit.
Can we accept donations?
Yes, your Gifts & More Online store will be set up to accept donations. You make 70% of the donated amount.
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 sales except for Texas residents.
How soon do orders ship out?
Orders generally ship within 2 business days after purchase.
Where do orders ship to?
Product ships from our Texas 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 is free on orders over $75.
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 check.
'Ship to group' is not automatically included as part of a Gifts & More 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, buyers will be instructed to contact customer service.
