Questions about Popcornopolis Online?
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Your group raises money with every purchase from your online store. Participants 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 participants need to register?
Registration is the best way to promote a Popcornopolis Online fundraiser. It's also a very effective way to get your participants engaged in your cause. Once registered, participants 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 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.
- 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.
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.
Are there any fees?
There are no setup fees or costs to run a Popcornopolis 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 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 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 Popcornopolis 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 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:
Can we accept donations?
Yes, your Popcornopolis Online store will be set up to accept donations. You make 70% of the donated amount.
How soon do orders ship out?
Orders generally ship within 7-14 business days after purchase.
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.
Free shipping on all online orders over $100.
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.
