What are the benefits to a pre-order store?

IT'S EASY
We make setting up a pre-order online store really easy and accessible to anyone that wants to raise money for a charity, business or cause. Our team take care of the mock-ups, creation of the pre-order store, production and fulfilment.

IT'S FREE TO SETUP
Our pre-order stores don't cost you a cent. Once the ordering is closed we minus the cost of the garments and the decorations from the total sales and pay you the profits. If you don't sell the minimum quantity, you can top up the orders or we can refund them.

IT'S SUSTAINABLE
By allowing your customers to order their apparel through an online pre-order store means that once production is finishes, every garment has a home. Instead of ordering in bulk and ending up with old stock not selling.

Step 1. Tell us about your project

Get started by filling out our short form to tell us about your project. This helps us to get an idea of what you are fundrasing for and our team will be able to suggest suitable products as well as send through further information and product pricing if possible.

Step 2. Finalise your design and products

Our team will work with you to find out what products you are intersted in, if you are not sure we can suggest popular garments that we think would be best suited for your project. We will then provide scaled visual mock-ups and proofs that show the decoration type, colour and size along with quotes for each product. Once you are happy and have signed off on the proof, we can then setup your pre-order store.

Step 3. Setup your pre-order Fundraise store

Once you have finalised your products and the proof, we can then upload these products to your pre-order store. This is when you can decide how long you would like the pre-ordering to be open for, the usual timeframe is 2 - 3 weeks but we have it open for as long or as short as you like. It is also important to think about how much you want to sell each product for, a good way to work this out is to take the cost price and add on the margin you want to make per product, this will give you the selling price.

Step 4. Share your Fundraise store with your network

Now your Fundraise store is ready to take orders, how exciting! We will send you the store URL that you can share via email, social media or on your website. If you don't want the ordering open to the general public, we can password protect your pre-order store so only those with the password can order from it. We can also send you some code that can be embedded into your own website, to allow customers to purchase via your website. Customers will order and check out the products on the pre-order store which is hosted on our website, customers also enter their shipping information as we offer customers the option to collect their order from the organiser or we can ship it directly to their address.

Step 5. Orders go to production

During the pre-ordering period, we can send you weekly reports to keep you informed on how the sales are tracking, then we send you a final sales report when the pre-order store closes. If the total orders do not make the minimum order quantity (usually 20 units), you can top up the to meet the minimum order. If you do not wish to do this, we refund your customers and the production of the orders does not go ahead. If you want to order extras to continue selling, now is the time to let us know, before we start production.

Step 6. We fulfill your orders

Once production has finished, we package your garments to your requirements. Packaging might be in a compostable bag or a cardboard box, all of our packaging options are environmentally friendly. We can also add in marketing material to your orders if needed and provide product photography of the finished garments. Then the orders are shipped out to customers, we offer nationwide and international shipping.

Step 7. Profits paid

The last part of the process if to pay you your profits. The way we work this out is the total revenue - the cost of the garments x the number of garments sold equals your profit. The profits are can be paid as soon as the pre-ordering period has closed.
