WHY SELL WITH A CATALOG

Face-to-face contact is the best way to encourage sales. Supporters appreciate seeing the person they’re buying from, plus you have the opportunity to explain how their purchase will directly benefit your group.

FOR EASY SUCCESS

1. Share the Catalog
We have a great catalog with amazing new products every year! By sharing it and talking about the fundraiser’s purpose, supporters are encouraged to buy.

2. Take Supporters’ Orders
Supporters’ orders are recorded on our helpful Order Takers. Money for all orders should be collected by your specified deadline.

3. Promote Your Fundraiser
Use every opportunity to share your story. Print our free Fundraising Poster and hang in high-traffic areas, use newspapers and applicable newsletters to your advantage.

4. Place Your Order
Confirm that all orders and cash receipts are in balance. Then simply place your order online or by phone or mail.

5. Distribute the Products
Sorting and delivering orders is safe and easy! We place a protective sleeve on all our knife blades, and all items are sealed in a plastic bag with the item number and product name printed on the bag.

FAQs

Catalog Fundraising

Getting Started

How do we start our catalog fundrasier?
Simply order the number of catalogs and order forms you’ll need for your salespeople.

How much do we need to purchase to start our fundraiser?
No purchase is necessary. Once your group sells and collects money for orders, you’ll place your group order with Rada, paying for the product at that time.

Is there a time limit on how long we can run our fundraiser?
No. You decide when to start and how long you want to sell.

Do we have to use online fundraising or can we just sell using the catalog?
You can choose each option alone or both at the same time. The choice is yours!

Placing an Order

How often can we place a group order?
As often as you wish! The minimum order is only $20.00 of wholesale items purchased.

Payment & Charges

How do we get paid for our catalog sales?
You collect money when taking orders. Your supporters pay the price listed in the catalog and you pay the cost each price listed on the Order From (the difference is your 40% profit).

Do supporters pay shipping on their catalog orders?
Supporters are not charged for shipping; however, a $1.00 processing charge is added to each order to help offset the cost of shipping the group order.

Does Rada charge groups sales tax?
We do not charge fundraising groups state or federal taxes.

Shopping & Payments

How do supporters shop online on behalf of our group?
Supporters can order through your unique online group store link or by selecting your group’s name at www.RadaFundraising.com. Or you can choose to create personalized salesperson store links for each group member to share.

General

How long will it take to get our group order?
You will generally receive your order five to ten days after we receive the order with payment.
