How long is the fundraiser?
We recommend giving your sellers 1 week to sell their smencil allocation and turn in the money.

How much should I order?
The size of your order depends on the number of participants in your group and how many items you want them to sell. Since Soda Shop Smencils come 6 inner buckets of 50 to the case, consider issuing 25 to each seller.
To determine how many cases to order, divide the number of participants in your group by 12. Round up to the next case number if needed.

We do not accept returns.

500. There are 6 inner buckets of 50. Each case contains 1 bucket each of Cherry Cola, Fizzy Pop, Orange Soda, Grape Soda, and 2 buckets of Root Beer.
Are smencils individually packaged?
Yes. Each smencil is packaged in its own recyclable plastic freshness tube.
Can scents be mixed in a case?
No. All scents are preselected and cases cannot be broken up.
How long do smencils stay fresh?
Scents are guaranteed to last for 2 years.
Is there a minimum order?
There is a 1 case minimum order requirement.
How much money can we make?
Estimating your profit is easy. Consider the following example.
A sponsor with 55 participants wants everyone to sell 25 smencils:
55 participants x 25 smencils / participant = 1,375 smencils
1,375 smencils ÷ 300 smencils / case = 4.58 cases (Round up)
5 cases x 300 smencils / case = 1,500 smencils
1,500 smencils x $1.00 / smen = $1,500.00 retail
$1,500.00 x 40% profit = $600.00 profit
The profit would be 40% because you would need to order 3 cases (Volume discounts apply).
