Too good to be true? It is good and it is absolutely true!
Raising funds through sales of branded products like apparel is not new; folks have been doing it for years. However it is fraught with a host of problems like finding the money to produce them, guessing what sizes to order, finding a way to sell them and then dealing with the pain of leftovers. After all every unsold item consumes the profit of approximately 3 items that did get sold.
Deedsnotwords.ca solves all these problems by enabling fundraisers and resource development professionals to create virtual branded products and offer them for sale via time bound online campaigns. These campaigns are delivered via a fully interactive and social media integrated micro-site hosted on www.deedsnotwords.ca for free.
All that the fund raiser needs to do is:
Supporters make their purchases, we count down the target as the campaign progresses and notify everyone when the target has been met. We then produce the merchandise, ship it either to donors directly or to campaign creators for onward distribution and remit the profit on the campaign after deducting the production costs.
The most amazing feature of deedsnotwords.ca is that there are zero up-front costs or commitments! We will manage and process every campaign that achieves a minimum of 12 sales. If we do not reach the minimum number of sales, no problem. We simply agree not to proceed with the order and notify donors accordingly. As supporters purchase products in the sizes and quantity they want, there is no money lost due to leftovers and sizing issues.
In addition, campaign creators can also collect money donations from supporters at check out. Regardless of whether the minimum quantity is achieved or not, we collect these funds and send the money over at the end of the campaign. A nominal administrative fee of 3.5% is applied to these funds raised, mainly to cover the fees charged by payment processors.
