What Our Customers Say

Experience was great! Communication and patience were the best especially with someone like me asking too many questions. Haha. However, shipping costs are quite a bit too much for 20 or less. Especially with Covid and so many people being out a job. Too many are hurting financially but would like to support but are not able to.

Great experience for my boys to learn about sales and public speaking. They were motivated to sell because of the prize program and were proud to have earned funds for our club activities. Will definitely work with you all again.

The crazy socks were a big hit! We sold more than we expected because of the fun options and size accommodations for kids and adults.

The products sold well for the most part. We had planned to sell quite a bit more, but with quite a few of our group either being quarantined as a precautionary or no longer on the team after fundraiser was planned, it didn't go as hoped.

Everyone loves their socks. It was fantastic for us to receive them prepacked per participant and had their order forms ready to go. The only issue that we have seen so far is not being aware of when orders that were purchased online and sent home would be sent out to the families.

Questions about Crazy Socks?

How it Works

How do we raise money?

Your group raises money when participants take orders from their catalog.

Do participants get a brochure to show?

Yes. Every participant receives a brochure, order form, and money envelope.

Is money collected up front?

Yes. Buyers can pay by check, cash, money order, or cashier's check.

Are there any fees?

There are no setup fees or supply costs to start a Crazy Socks fundraiser.

Can participants earn prizes?

Yes. Our prize programs are optional but encouraged. You can boost sales by incentivizing your participants. It's important to discuss these prizes at your kickoff meeting. Then, continue to remind your participants about them throughout your campaign. This will keep them motivated to sell.

If your group has 100 participants, a prize flyer is placed in each seller's packet. The sponsor receives a PDF for smaller groups with their 'fundraiser supply kit' email.

There is no cost to the group for our incentive plans.

Learn about our prize programs

How soon can we start?

You'll receive an agreement to sign after you submit our Start a Fundraiser form. It will take at least 7-10 business days to process your order and pack and ship your supplies.

Learn about our timeline.

How long is the fundraiser?

Your sale lasts for two weeks. You can always change your end date. Let us know before your sale is over.

Online Store

Can we also raise money online?

Yes, selling online is an essential part of your Crazy Socks fundraiser. Before your sale, you'll receive registration instructions for your participants. Once registered, they can invite friends and family to shop at your store.

Raising money online adds a 2nd way for your group to raise money.

Your online store will include additional items not found in the brochure. You must let us know if you only want to display your specific brochure items.

Do participants need to register?

Registration is the most effective way to promote a Crazy Socks fundraiser online and drive traffic to your store. 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 online sales.

Once potential supporters arrive at your store, your group name appears at the top of the page. This helps to personalize your fundraiser. For example, "Welcome to ABC High School Band." Encourage your sellers to personalize the visitor experience even more by uploading their pictures.

Registered sellers can also earn credit toward prizes. We encourage groups to supplement our prize program with their rewards. This can help bring in more sales. Here are some incentive ideas.

Do we receive a group link?

There are two ways to promote your store:

  1. Registration: By default, your group will receive its school ID number. Participants will need it to register and share your store with others using social media, text, and email.
  2. Quick Registration: Or, as an option, we will send you a link that you can provide to your participants to forward to their family and friends. Supporters only need to enter their school ID #, group name, or student they want to support. Your sellers would not need to register.

By using quick registration, you can only track online sales as a group, not by an individual seller. Sellers would not receive prize credit for any sales made online.

Online Ship-to-Group Orders

Another limitation with a single store link 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.

Can we accept donations?

Yes, people can donate in $25 increments. Your group receives 75% profit from all donations.

Or, if you don't want a donation option in your store, you can have this feature turned off. When submitting your Start a Fundraiser form, Let us know in the comments section.

Donations do not count toward items sold.

Can buyers credit more than 1 participant?

No. Participants need to register individually. Each participant has their own login and sharing options.

When does our online store close?

Your online store closes seven days after your sales end date.

When do we receive our online profit payment?

We will send your online sales profit check once we receive your brochure sales invoice payment.

Making Sales

Is there a minimum order?

There are no order requirements for a Crazy Socks fundraiser.

How much money can we make?

You'll need to know your group size and participant goal. Here's how you can estimate your profit:

Calculation Steps

  1. Participant Count x Participant Item Goal = Items Sold
  2. Items Sold x Average Retail Price = Gross Sales
  3. Gross Sales x Profit % = Group Profit

Example

  1. Let's say you have 60 participants and set your participant item goal at 10. The items sold would be 60 participants x 10 Items/participant = 600.
  2. Next, determine your gross sales. The average retail price is about $10, so your gross sales would be 600 Items x $10 = $6,000.
  3. Since your profit is 40%, your group profit would be $6,000 x 40% = $2,400.

Keep in mind our example is only an estimated profit. In reality, participants probably won't sell the same number of items. In addition, the average retail dollars sold per seller will vary.

Can we track our sales?

Brochure: You probably won't know how many orders you get until you collect your order forms. But some strategies can give you a ballpark idea. Learn how to track your fundraising progress

Online: You'll be able to track online sales in real time. By logging into your dashboard, you'll see the following:

  • The number of participants who have registered
  • The number of unique visitors
  • Individual participant and group sales progress

How do we receive our money?

Brochure Sales: Money and order forms are turned in at the end of the sale. The money gets deposited in the group's account, and the order forms are processed.

Once orders are processed, groups receive their sales reports and invoices. The group sends a check for the invoice amount and keeps the rest as profit.

Online Sales: Once we receive your brochure invoice payment, we'll send your online sales profit check.

Donations: Any profits from donations are included with the online sales check.

What is our profit?

Groups make 40% off all brochure and online sales.

You receive 70% of online donations.

(Use the 'Calculate Your Profit' calculator at the top of the page to learn how much your group can make.)

What about sales tax?

Certain states require that we collect and remit sales tax on your behalf to your state's Department of Revenue. We will need to charge sales tax if your state has determined that we have established nexus and you are not tax-exempt. See our brochure fundraising tax guide for more information.

Shipping

How soon do we receive our order?

We deliver brochure orders to your group 3-4 weeks after receiving your order forms. Online orders generally ship to customers within 3-5 days after purchase.

How are online customers notified about their orders?

Customers receive a confirmation email when they place their order. A notification email is sent once their order ships.

Where do orders ship to?

The product ships from our California warehouse to all the lower 48 states.

How is our order packed?

Orders are prepacked according to each seller.

Is there a shipping fee?

Brochure Sales:

Shipping is free if certain order minimums are met:

Groups of up to 100 participants

If you sell 150 or more items, there is no shipping charge. A $100 shipping and handling fee for orders with fewer than 150 items sold will be charged.

Groups with over 100 participants

Shipping is free if your group averages $20 or more in retail sales per member. (Since the average price of an item listed in a typical brochure is about $14, less than two items sold per seller.)

Ave. Retail Sales / Enrolled Shipping Fee
$0-$9.99 $1 / Enrolled
$10-$14.99 75¢ / Enrolled
$15-$19.99 50¢ / Enrolled
$20+ No Charge

A quick way to determine your average retail sales per enrolled is to divide your total sales by your group enrollment. Consider the following two examples.

If your group raises:

  1. $2,500 with 150 members, your average retail sales per enrolled would be $16.67. You would be charged 50¢ x 150 = $75 (See chart above).
  2. $3,500 with 150 members, your average retail sales per enrolled would be $23.33. You would not be charged a shipping fee because you reached $20 per enrolled group member.
Online Sales:

Customers pay a shipping fee to ship their orders directly to them at checkout.

Buyers also have the option to ship their orders to the group. In this case, there is no shipping fee, but buyers pay a 5% processing fee to have their order shipped to your group.

NOTE: Brochure and online sales count towards the minimum free shipping requirement.

Do you ship orders to sellers?

There is no ship-to-seller option for a Crazy Socks fundraiser.

How are product issues handled?

If you have any items that need replacing, you must submit a form that we'll attach to your delivery notification email. Sellers will have seven days to report any missing or damaged items. Groups are allowed one submission per fundraiser.
