What Our Customers Say
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 worked good, my students just don't fundraise.
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.
There was a tumbler for every person's interests so selling was easy.
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.
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.
It was excellent. Very good communication. Could have better instructions for how to register. The instructions were not very friendly for middle school students.
I had a great experience. The service was prompt and I always appreciate that!
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!
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!
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.
Your company was very responsive to questions and made the whole process simple!
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.
Big Fundraising Ideas was so easy to communicate with, due to their clear information and fast response. This fundraiser was perfect for our needs.
The product worked good. The quality was excellent.
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/ or email.
Your group receives a profit off 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/ 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 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 photo.
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)
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 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: Participants will need your group link to register. This way they can login and track their sales progress. When they share the link with friends and family using social media, text, and/ or 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 simply send out your group link.
By only sharing your group link, you would not be able to track individual participant sales. 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. 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?
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 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 Stainless Tumblers Online fundraiser.
Can participants earn prizes?
Adding prizes has been proven to improve sales. It’s important to promote your incentives throughout your sale. This will keep your participants focused on sharing their store link with others.
You have 2 prize program options:
We email you your prize flyer before your kickoff. After your sale is over, we add the total cash amount to your profit payment. If you choose prizes, we 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?
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 want your store to close.
Are the tumblers dishwasher safe?
Hand washing is recommended. And because our tumblers are metallic, do not use 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 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 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 the closing of your store.
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?
Yes, people can donate in increments of $25, $50, $100 and $250. Your group receives 70% profit off all donations. If you don't want a donation option on your store you can have this feature turned off. Simply let us know before your fundraiser start date.
Donations do not count towards items sold when determining your group's final 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 it’s required by that state.
How soon do orders ship out?
Orders ship within 15 business days from the date your store closes.
How are customers notified about their order?
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 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.
|11 or more||$19.99|
In addition, a 6% processing fee is added to the shipping fee. Tax is also added, if applicable.
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 the shipping and processing fee and have items delivered to them, or just pay the 6% processing fee and have their order shipped to your group.
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 Stainless Tumblers 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, buyers will be instructed to contact customer service.
