There is no cost to the group for our incentives.
How soon can we start?

How long is the fundraiser?
Your sale will end 2 weeks after your start date. You can always change your end date. Simply let us know before your sale is over.
Can we also raise money online?
Yes, selling online is an important part of your Drinkware Done Differently fundraiser. Prior to your start date you’ll receive instructions so your participants can register. Once registered they’ll be able to 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. As participants register, they’ll be able to track their online sales.
Sellers can share your online store link using text, social media, and/ or email. If participants have registered, once supporters click on the link and arrive at your store, they will see a personalized message. For example, “You're shopping for John Doe” (name of participant). Sellers also have the option to upload their photo.
Registered sellers will also be eligible to earn credit towards prizes. We encourage groups to supplement our prize program with their own rewards. This can bring in even more sales. Here are some incentive ideas.
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.
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.
Can we accept donations?
Drinkware Done Differently does not offer a donation option.
Can buyers credit more than 1 participant?
The online store is set up so that only 1 participant receives credit for a particular sale.
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 as well your 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 you 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 most likely won’t know how many orders you get until you collect your order forms. Yet there are strategies that 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:
- 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 sent in for processing.
Once orders are processed, the group receives their 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 tumblers.
(Use the ‘Calculate Your Profit’ calculator at the top of the page to determine your profit)
What about sales tax?
How soon do we receive our order?
Orders generally ship within 15 business days from the date that we receive your order forms.
Where do orders ship to?
Product ships out of our Texas warehouse to all lower 48 states.
How is our order packed?
Orders deliver prepacked by seller.
Is there a shipping fee?
Shipping is free if certain order minimums are met:
Groups up to 100 participants
If you sell 150 or more items there is no shipping charge. A $100 shipping and handling fee will be charged for orders with fewer than 150 items sold.
Groups with over 100 participants
Shipping is free as long as 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 2 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 2 examples.
If your group raises:
- $2,500 with 150 members, your average retail sales per enrolled would be $16.67. In this case 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. In this case 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 at checkout to have their order shipped direct to them.
Buyers also have the option to ship their order to the group. In this case there is no shipping fee.
Do you ship orders to sellers?
There is no ship to seller option for a Drinkware Done Differently tumbler fundraiser.
How are product issued handled?
If you have any items that need replacing, you’ll need to submit a form that we’ll attach to your delivery notice email. Sellers will have 7 days to report any missing or damaged items. Groups are allowed 1 submission per fundraiser.
