What Our Customers Say
It was awesome! First, the product came way quicker than I expected. I thought the product would arrive two weeks after the invoice was received, but it came the very next week! Then, you had each participant's order separated into separate packaging, which might not sound impressive to you, but trust me, it is. This, by far, was one of the easiest fundraisers I've done. In fact a co-worker of mine was there when I was unboxing and checking things, and she kept saying, "Oh, this is so nice! This makes it so much easier for you." I was very impressed with how your company organized everything.
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Your group raises money when participants take catalog orders.
Do participants get a brochure to show?
Yes. Every participant receives a chocolate brochure, order form, and money envelope.
Is money collected up front?
Yes. Supporters 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 Sweet & Savory fundraiser.
Can participants earn prizes?
Yes. Our prize programs are optional but encouraged. You can boost sales by offering prizes to your participants. It's important to discuss our incentives at your kickoff meeting. Then, continue to remind your participants about them throughout your sale. This will keep your group motivated.
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.
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 lasts for two weeks. You can always change your end date. Let us know before your sale is over.
Can we also raise money online?
Yes, an online store is automatically included. Before your Sweet & Savory kickoff, 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 revenue source to your fundraiser.
Your online store will include additional items not found in the brochure.
Do participants need to register?
Registration is the most effective way to promote a Sweet & Savory 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, the participant's name and group appear at the top of the page. This helps to personalize your fundraiser. For example, "Purchases from this page will be credited to John Doe in support of ABC High School Band." Encourage your sellers to personalize the visitor experience even more by uploading their pictures.
Registered sellers will also be eligible to earn credit toward prizes. We encourage groups to supplement our prize program with additional incentives.
Do we receive a group link?
You will not receive your online store link. Instead, you will receive a unique program ID number. You will need to forward it to your participants so they can register. Once registered, they can invite people to shop at your store using social media, text, and email. They will also be able to log in and track their sales progress.
Can we accept donations?
Yes, your store will be set up to accept donations. You make 70% of the donated amount.
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 or the date we receive your order forms if beforehand.
When do we receive our online profit payment?
We will send your online sales profit check once we receive your brochure sales invoice payment.
Is there a minimum order?
There are no order requirements for a Sweet & Savory fundraiser.
How much money can we make?
You'll need to know your group size and your participants' goals. 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 $14, so your gross sales would be 600 Items x $14 = $8,400.
- Since your profit is 40%, your group profit would be $8,400 x 40% = $3,360.
Keep in mind that 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 receive up-to-date sales information whenever you log into your dashboard. You'll see participants who've emailed friends and family and the latest sales activity.
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 your group 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 of all Sweet & Savory items.
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?
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 two business days after purchase.
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?
The product ships from our Texas warehouse to all the lower 48 states.
How is our order packed?
Orders are prepacked according to each 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, 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.
Customers pay a shipping fee to ship their orders directly to them at checkout. Shipping is free on orders $75 and over.
Buyers also have the option to ship their orders to the group. In this case, there is no shipping fee.
NOTE: Brochure and online sales count towards the minimum free shipping requirement.
Do you ship orders to sellers?
Yes, this is an option. Instead of shipping Sweet & Savory brochure orders to your group, we'll ship them to each participant. Sellers would then need to distribute items to their customers.
Home delivery fundraisers go by the following profit margins:
|Retail Sales||Group Profit|
|$1,000 to $14,999||30%|
Orders under $1,000 in gross sales will be shipped to the group.
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.
