Your school receives a set of MASTER INVENTORY SHEETS listing all items packed, the school's cost for each item, several different suggested retail prices reflecting either 10% profit, 15% profit or 25% profit, and the price category code for each item. You may sell the gifts for any price you like, however, it is not advisable to sell them for less than the school cost. If the school chooses one uniform profit margin for the entire selection, Fun Services will print the Highlights Gift List with retail prices to match that profit margin.
B. PRICE CODING
All items have a PRICE CATEGORY CODE printed on their box or bag.
C. CASH REGISTER ON LOAN
Upon request, Fund Resources can loan your school the use of a cash register during the sale. The retail prices (corresponding to the uniform profit margin the school chooses) will be programmed into the cash register.
SELLING TO THE STUDENTS IS EASY! Simply look at the gift, find the category code, then punch the corresponding look-up key on the cash register. The correct price will automatically be charged.
D. GIFT BAGS and SHOPPING BAGS
Fund Resources provides 4 sizes of GIFT BAGS with To/From labels pre-printed on the bags. Place the gift in the gift bags, fill out the label and it's ready to place under the tree. SHOPPING BAGS are also provided for the students to carry the purchased gifts home.
E. RE-STOCKING and RE-ORDERS
Our goal is to send you more merchandise than your anticipated sales. However, since some gifts sell faster than others, you may re-order specific items each day. Fax your request by 2:00 pm each day. Locally, our own drivers will deliver the re-order the next morning as early as we can get to it there, hopefully first-thing-in-the-morning. In other metro areas, re-orders are shipped via UPS Next Day Air, UPS ground service, or Lone Star Overnight to be delivered as early the next day as the carrier serves your location. (In small towns away from metro areas, delivery of re-orders are usually sent by UPS ground service as that is the fastest it can get there, and unfortunately, that may mean that the re-order does not arrive until the end of the school day - so plan accordingly.)
Closing the Shop:
First, you'll need to decide which way you are going to calculate your bill.
1. SCHOOL TAKES AN INVENTORY OF LEFTOVERS AND CALCULATES OWN BILL. It's easy and a proven winner - you pay only for the items not returned to Fund Resources. - You pay only the "school cost" on each item - A complete set of MASTER INVENTORY SHEETS is provided to calculate the bill.
2. "NO INVENTORY" OPTION The school fills out a simple billing summary reporting the total income from the program. Subtract the appropriate profit margin you chose. Pay Fund Resources the remainder.
RETURNS: Next, pack the leftover merchandise in as few boxes as possible. Return shipping instructions are provided - simply follow those instructions. Fund Resources will either pickup the leftovers in our own trucks, or pay for the return shipping charges, depending on your location.
