What Our Customers Say
This was a very easy fundraiser to hold. Everything was done online and if I had any questions, I received a quick response. Recommend!
It was nice to have everything done online. It kept my students safe.
The sales reps are fast to respond and get the fundraiser up and running. They did a great job responding to our needs. The products were excellent and arrived in a timely manner as well.
Some people we disappointed that the brochure had more items than the online store. The store online could also use some work to be a little bit more user friendly.
I had no issues working with this amazing team. Again, the reps were responsive and flexible in working with me and my students. I would work with them again.
The product worked well because of the wide variety of options/products. The shipping costs seemed high and I feel this caused some people not to purchase product.
Quick delivery of products!
Found this product a bit harder to get people on board with to sell. However, those that worked on spreading word and product information say better responses.
The online program worked well with our group. It gave them the ability to share the information with multiple people quickly.
We did an online store to work around the COVID 19 Pandemic. Super easy!
Communication was very prompt and details were given to set up the accounts.
Very prompt and responsive.
It was great! A win/win for everyone involved!
We are pleased with the experience and the timeliness of the process.
Service on the front end was good. However, the follow-up could've used some work. We had people waiting an extended time period for their items with no delay in shipment notice.
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 Goodies & Gifts 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, “Thank you for supporting John Doe with ABC High School Band!”
As the sponsor, you can track both individual and group sales progress. Besides dollars raised, you’ll be able to see the number of social shares and emails sent out by your sellers.
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:
- Registration: By default, you’ll receive your group 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, as an option we can create 1 unique group link that would bypass the registration process. Everyone would be able to share this 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?
No in person ordering or money collection takes place. 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 Goodies & Gifts Online fundraiser.
Can participants earn prizes?
Incentivizing your participants 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 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, 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 Online 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 Goodies & Gifts Online sale you'll receive access to your online store dashboard. You’ll be able to see who’s registered, as well as email and social share activity. And of course, sales progress.
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, by default we will set your Goodies & Gifts Online store up to accept donations. You make 70% of the donated amount. You have the option to turn this feature off when logged into your portal.
Can buyers credit more than 1 participant?
Yes. Buyers can choose to support more than 1 participant. Before continuing to the store, supporters would need to select a participant. Then choose the ‘Support another seller’ link to add another participant.
However, participants themselves need to register individually. Each participant has their own login and sharing options.
What about sales tax?
Customers do not currently pay any sales tax for online orders.
How soon do orders ship out?
Orders generally ship within 3 business days after purchase.
Where do orders ship to?
Product ships from our Indiana 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. Free shipping on all orders over $99.
|Order Amount||Shipping Cost|
|$99.01 and up||Free|
Ship to Group Option
To help cover shipping fees for your online customers, you can add a ‘ship to group’ option to your store. People can then choose to pay a shipping fee and have items delivered to them, or pay a 5% processing fee and have their order shipped to your group.
For example, a $50 order would be charged an additional $2.50 ($50 x 5% = $2.50). The total cost for the order would therefore be $52.50.
We then combine all ‘ship to group’ orders and ship them to your location after your sale is over.
'Ship to group' is not automatically included as part of a Goodies & Gifts 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 either submit a ticket online or call into customer service.
