What Our Customers Say
Big Fundraising Ideas was so easy to communicate with, due to their clear information and fast response. This fundraiser was perfect for our needs.
This fundraising method worked perfectly for our needs. We were looking for a fundraiser where we did not have to collect order forms or do the distribution of products. The online store was easy to distribute to our students and easy to use on the consumer end. The site for tracking sales was really convenient.
The product worked good. The quality was excellent.
The tumblers were a great product to sell. There was a lot of interest as well as variety for customers to choose from. They were a quality and affordable which made selling them quite easy. Students were easily motivated to sell these quality products as well.
Communication was great. Everything was done through email but they were very quick and fast responses. I appreciated the no nonsense, process that took place.
Overall, it worked well. We did not sell as many tumblers as we would have liked, but this was due to our members, not the product!
This program allowed students to safely sell their fundraiser items virtually without having go anywhere, collect any money or deliver any product. This was important during the pandemic. It allowed customers to purchase quality products as well as donate to the organization effortlessly.
Your company was very responsive to questions and made the whole process simple!
Our fundraiser went very well! We exceeded our campaign goal and everyone was please with the turn around time of the order of our stainless steel cups. Everyone who purchased one really likes to use them!
They made our fundraiser very simple and easy to spread the word about our stainless steel fundraiser.
It worked good, my students just don't fundraise.
The products are amazing! Out of all the fundraising I’ve done my last 20 years of raising kids and teaching I feel like these products for the best quality.
I had a great experience. The service was prompt and I always appreciate that!
The process was seamless and easy to complete. I loved the online website to track sales. Hopefully we will do this fundraiser next year when the kids are back in school and get an even bigger turnout.
It was excellent. Very good communication. Could have better instructions for how to register. The instructions were not very friendly for middle school students.
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Profit is made from the purchase of every tumbler from your store. Once they register, participants can invite family and friends to shop. Invitations are sent via social media, text, and email.
Your group receives a profit from each sale.
Do participants need to register?
Registration is a great way to engage your participants in your Stainless Tumblers Online fundraiser. Once registered, participants can invite friends and family to your online store using text, social media, and 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 appears at the top of the page. This helps to personalize your fundraiser. For example, "You're shopping for John Doe" (name of participant). Sellers also have the option to upload their photos.
Before your sale starts, we send you access to your online sales portal. Sponsors can track things like:
- Registered participants
- Sales updates
- Sales by item
Getting participants to register is crucial 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)
Track your fundraiser progress and remind participants to invite people to your store. This will help your participants reach their goals.
Registered participants will also be eligible to win prizes. We encourage groups to supplement the prize program we offer with additional incentives.
Do we receive a group link?
There are two ways to promote your store:
- Registration: Participants will need your group link to register. This way, they can log in and track their sales progress. When they share the link with friends and family using social media, text, and email, visitors will see the participant's name when they arrive at the store.
- Direct Link: If you don't want your group members to register, they can send your group link.
You cannot track individual participant sales by only sharing your group link. You would also not be able to use a prize program.
Online Ship-to-Group Orders
Another limitation to sellers not registering is getting items to online customers who choose the 'ship to group' option. Typically when participants register and send out their unique links, and customers make a purchase, orders are automatically tied to a particular seller.
Any items are shipped 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 must 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 in-person ordering or money collection. Participants generate sales when the people they invite buy items from your store.
Can participants track their sales?
Participants can log into their portal anytime and see their sales updates.
Are there any fees?
There are no setup fees or costs to run a Stainless Tumblers Online fundraiser. We will waive the $50 admin fee once your group sells 50 items. If you decide to cancel after we receive your signed agreement, you will be charged the $50 admin fee.
Can participants earn prizes?
Adding prizes has been proven to improve sales. It's essential to promote your incentives throughout your sale. This will keep your participants focused on sharing their store links with others.
You have two prize program options:
We will email you your prize flyer before your kickoff. After your sale, we add the total cash amount to your profit payment. If you choose prizes, we will ship them 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, you'll receive a 'registration instruction steps' email. Be sure to forward it to your sellers.
How soon can we start?
You'll receive an agreement to sign after you submit our Start a Fundraiser form. Processing your order and setting up your store will take at least 3-5 business days.
Your store will be live once we send you your participant registration steps. We recommend that you have an official kickoff meeting so everyone starts simultaneously.
If you can't meet in person, consider using online communication technology. Examples include Zoom, Cisco Webex, GoToMeeting, and Google Meet.
How long is the fundraiser?
By default, we set your end date two weeks after your start date. You can always change your end date. Let us know before your sale ends.
Or, let us know upfront when you want your store to close.
Are the tumblers dishwasher safe?
Hand washing is recommended. And because our tumblers are metallic, do not use them in the microwave.
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 one store at a time?
No. You must choose one store. For example, 'Goodies & Gifts' cannot be run simultaneously as 'Popcornopolis Online'. You can always run a second online fundraiser after the first one ends.
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 Stainless Tumblers Online sale, you'll receive access to your online store dashboard. Among other things, you'll be able to track::
- Participants who've registered
- Individual participant and group sales progress
How do we receive our money?
Your profit payment is processed within 15 business days of your store's closing. If you add 'ship to group', payments are processed within five business days after your order ships.
What is our profit?
Your profit percentage is based on how many items your group sells:
You receive 70% of online donations.
A $50 administrative fee will be deducted from your profit if your group sells fewer than 50 items.
Can we accept donations?
People can donate in increments of $25, $50, $100, and $250. Your group receives 70% profit from all donations. You can turn off this feature if you don't want a donation option in your store. Let us know before your fundraiser start date.
Your final profit percentage is based on the total number of items your group sells. Donations do not count toward items sold when determining group profit percentage.
Can buyers credit more than 1 participant?
No. The online store is set up so that only 1 participant receives credit for a particular sale.
What about sales tax?
Certain states require that we collect and remit sales tax on purchases made by online customers to their state's Department of Revenue. The sales tax will automatically be calculated and added to their total at checkout if that state requires it.
How soon do orders ship out?
Orders ship within 15 business days from the date your store closes.
How are customers notified about their orders?
Customers receive a confirmation email when they place their order. A notification email with tracking information is sent once their order ships.
Where do orders ship to?
Product ships from our Texas warehouse to all the lower 48 states. All items ship direct to the buyer.
Who pays the shipping fee?
Customers pay a shipping fee to ship their orders directly to them at checkout.
|11 or more||$19.99|
In addition, a 6% processing fee is added to the shipping fee. Tax is also added, if applicable.
How to Reduce Online Customer Shipping Costs
Shipping costs are fixed for online customers, as shown in the table above. However, there is a way that you can reduce their shipping costs with 'Ship to Group'.
Ship to Group Option
To help cover shipping fees for your online customers, add a 'ship to group' option to your store. People can then pay the shipping fee plus the 6% processing fee and have items delivered to them, or only pay the 6% processing fee and have their order shipped to your group.
For example, a $50 order would be charged an additional $3.00 ($50 x 6% = $3.00). The total cost for the order would therefore be $53.
This way, customers would have two options at checkout:
- Have their order sent to them and pay the shipping fee.
- Have their order sent to you and pay a 6% processing fee.
Offering this 2nd option may encourage more people to place orders.
Adding 'ship to group' will shift the shipping cost burden from your customers to your group. Instead of each online customer paying for their shipping, we would deduct the cost to ship one larger consolidated order to your group at the end of your sale from your profit.
Unless you tell us to, we will not add 'ship to group' to your online fundraiser. You can do so by putting "Add ship to group" in the comments section before submitting your Start a Fundraiser form.
NOTE: We only recommend this option for buyers close to you.
How are product issues handled?
For questions about orders, buyers will be instructed to contact customer service.
