I am looking to do something a little different and can't seem to find an app that will help. I am looking for a way to create sub stores to allow others to drive people to the site to buy for a fundraiser. Sort of like affiliate marketing but for school groups or other clubs. The problem is with fundraisers you normally offer a much larger percentage and in order to do so, I need a different environment where the sales I offer normal customers do not apply to fundraiser sales. Short of setting up a completely different store and using a synchronizing app to manage products and inventory I can't think of a better way to do this. If anyone has any ideas I would much appreciate it!
Elle here from Shopify.
Have you checked out the app called Locksmith yet? This app will allow you to create private 'members only' sections of your storefront, where you can host products that are sold for different prices.
You could direct fundraiser customers directly to those pages, and provide them with the password through your advertising efforts.
Let me know if you think this will work! Hope it helps.
This is Max from the Shopify Team. The Locksmith app that Elle suggested is a great app for allowing/ or blocking customers from certain pages or sections of your site, rather than creating a new one. I wanted to share another app as well, just in case it might have some more functionality that you (or someone else reading this post) might be after - Omnistar Affiliate Software. It offers some discount and promotional features that might come in handy if you're working lots of different user who need to be tracked and rewarded.
I hope one of these options helps you move forward with your idea and shop.
I am also looking for something similar. We run fundraisers for schools where they promote our product and a percentage of each sale that they generate will go back to the school to reach their fundraising target.
How this could possibly work:
1. School directs parents to their unique fundraising link
2. Parents have the ability to purchase from this page and can also see how much the school has raised in the fundraiser - EG $2000 of their goal of $10,000
3. When the parents purchase, 20% of the order total goes towards the schools fundraising target and is instantly updated on the fundraising chart total for all to see
Do you know of any apps out there that do something similar that we can customise to suit our needs?
Did anyone on this thread find an app to fit your fundraising needs? The company I am working for (BeeBagz) is looking for something similar. Shopify has suggested "Shop for Good" which may end up working, but I want to explore other options just be sure I'm picking the right one.
We are looking to have schools/sports teams be able to sign up to fundraise with us and a % of sales would go back to their school/team. Looking for an app that can support this alongside our normal store.
I'm interested in hearing of apps that have worked for this purpose and how you've liked them
We are looking to do a fundraiser with a local private school for back to school with branded and monogrammed masks, cases, etc.
It seems that the route we will likely explore is one of the afilliate marketing apps. I just need to look into which the best one might be.
Does anyone have any experience? they range in price, but up to $25 a month would be OK, especially given that many have free trials, and we wouldnt be running the fundraiser all year.
Has anyone tried this?
