What Our Customers Say
Was an excellent fundraiser for 6-8th graders. The variety of tumblers made this fundraiser beyond successful for us!
Overall, very responsive to emails and any questions we had. Was very pleased with service. We had some missing items, but they were dealt with in a timely manner.
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Your group profits when your participants take orders from their brochures.
Do participants get a brochure to show?
Yes. Every participant receives a catalog and an order form.
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 costs to run a Drinkware Done Differently Tumbler sale.
Can participants earn prizes?
Yes. Our incentive programs are optional but encouraged. Motivating your sellers with prizes can increase sales. It's important to discuss your prize plan at your kickoff meeting. Then, continue to promote your prizes throughout your sale. This will keep your group inspired.
Sponsors receive a prize flyer PDF with their 'fundraiser supply kit' email.
There is no cost to the group for our incentives.
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.
How long is the fundraiser?
Your sale will end two weeks after your start date. You can always change your end date. Let us know before your sale is over.
Are the tumblers dishwasher safe?
We do not recommend placing our tumblers in the microwave or dishwasher. A care card is placed inside each tumbler, and it's suggested that they be hand washed instead.
How is our logo applied to our custom tumbler?
For color designs, each tumbler is inserted into a Helix machine. The art is loaded and directly applied to the tumbler while spinning inside the machine. After the art is applied, it's followed by an application of varnish, which is UV dried. The varnish protects the logo that was applied to the tumbler. The artwork is not a sticker or vinyl application but a digital print.
For laser-etched designs, every stainless steel tumbler is coated with a color, such as red or white. The laser follows a design path to etch away the color applied over the raw silver steel, leaving the logo design behind. The silver color will then show through where the logo was engraved.
Can we also raise money online?
Yes, selling online is essential to your Drinkware Done Differently fundraiser. Before your start date, you'll receive instructions so your participants can register. 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.
Do participants need to register?
Registration is the best way to get your participants engaged in your cause. 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, 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".
Registered sellers will also be eligible to earn credit toward prizes. We encourage groups to supplement our prize program with their rewards. This can bring in even more sales. Here are some incentive ideas.
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.
By promoting a direct link, you can only track online sales as a group, not by individual sellers. As a result, participants would not receive prize credit for selling online.
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 shipped to the group are 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?
People can donate in increments of $25, $50, $100, and $250. Your group receives 70% profit from all donations.
Or, if you don't want a donation option in your store, you can have this feature turned off. Let us know before your fundraiser start date.
Can buyers credit more than 1 participant?
The online store is set up so that only 1 participant receives credit for a particular sale.
When does our online store close?
Once you let us know that you have entered your brochure order forms into your online portal, we will close your store.
When do we receive our online profit payment?
We will send your online sales profit check once we receive your brochure sales invoice payment. If you sold more online than through the brochure, payments are processed within five business days after your 'ship-to-group' order ships.
Is there a minimum order?
There are no order requirements for a Drinkware Done Differently 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:
- Participant Count x Participant Item Goal = Items Sold
- Items Sold x Average Retail Price = Gross Sales
- Gross Sales x Profit % = Group Profit
- 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.
- Next, determine your gross sales. The average retail price is about $25, so your gross sales would be 600 Items x $25 = $15,000.
- Since your profit is 40%, your group profit would be $15,000 x 40% = $6,000.
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. Yet 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:
- Which participants have registered
- 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, the group receives its sales reports and invoice. 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.
What is our profit?
Groups make 40% off all Drinkware Done Differently tumbler sales.
You receive 70% of online donations.
(Use the 'Calculate Your Profit' calculator at the top of the page to learn how much money 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.
How soon do we receive our order?
Orders generally ship within 15 business days from the date that we receive your order forms.
How are online 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.
How is our order packed?
Orders are prepacked and delivered by the seller.
Is there a shipping fee?
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, that is 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|
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:
- $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).
- $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.
Both brochure and online sales count towards the free shipping minimum requirement
Customers pay a shipping fee to ship their orders directly to them at checkout.
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 pay the shipping and processing fee and have items delivered to them, or 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.
Online orders do not automatically include the 'ship to group' option. Thus, you must 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.
Do you ship orders to sellers?
There is no ship-to-seller option for a Drinkware Done Differently Tumbler 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.
