Goodies & Gifts Online Fundraiser Questions

Answers to questions about Goodies & Gifts

How it Works

How do we raise money?

Your group profits when supporters buy items from your online store. Once students 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 students need to register?

Registration is the best way to promote a Goodies & Gifts Online fundraiser. It's also a very effective way to get your students engaged in your cause. As students register, they’ll be able to share their unique link using text, social media, and/ or email.

This takes people to your store where the student’s name appears at the top of the page. This helps make it recognizable to friends and family. 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 students 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 students to invite people to your store. This will help your students reach their goal.

Registered students 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, your group will receive its own group ID number. Students will need it to register and share your store with others using social media, text, and/ or email.
  2. Direct Link: As an option, we can create a unique link that would bypass the registration process. Your group 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.

Do students collect orders and money?

No in person ordering or money collection takes place. 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 Goodies & Gifts Online fundraiser.

Can students earn prizes?

Incentivizing your students can improve sales. It’s important that you continue to promote your incentives to keep your group motivated.

We offer 2 prize program options:

  1. Cash
  2. Traditional
We email your prize flyer to you before your kickoff. Be sure to forward it to your students 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 students names and how much they sold. Prizes are shipped with a reference list that matches prizes with students.

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 to pass onto 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 student registration instruction steps, you can start selling. 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.

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.

Making Sales

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 the store.

What is our profit?

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

Items SoldProfit
1-925%
10-2930%
30-4935%
50+40%

(For a quick estimate, multiply the number of students in your group by 5)

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 student?

Yes, before continuing to the store, supporters first need to select a student. Then select the ‘Support another seller’ link to add another student.
