Popcornopolis Online Fundraiser Questions

Answers to questions about Popcornopolis Online

How it Works

How do we raise money?

Your group raises money with every purchase from your online store. Students 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.

Do students need to register?

Registration is the best way to promote a Popcornopolis Online fundraiser. It's also a very effective way to get your students engaged in your cause. Once registered, students invite people to your store by sharing their unique link. They can do this using text, social media, and/ or email.

Once potential buyers are at the store, your group’s name appears at the top of the page. This helps make it recognizable to friends and family. 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 student 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 students have registered and the number of unique visitors they've had.

Getting students 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 students to invite people to shop. This will encourage them to reach their goal. Students 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:

  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?

There is no in person ordering or money collection. 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 Popcornopolis Online fundraiser.

Can students 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 students motivated to keep sharing with others.

We offer 2 prize program options:

  1. Cash
  2. Traditional
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.

You’ll receive a sales report showing your students 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 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. Be sure to forward this information to 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?

Your store does not turn on until your start date. We recommend that you schedule an official kickoff meeting date and 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’ 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?

  • The number of students who have registered
  • How unique visitors each student has had
  • Individual student and group 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:
