Create & Develop
Build & Launch
Produce & Ship
What if I need a logo ?
You're in luck! We can design a new logo for you or update an existing logo. All logos designs and modifications include two revisions - after that, its $25 a revision.
How long does it take to launch a store ?
It depends. We move as fast as you do, so the quicker we get through each stage of the build, the quicker you can start spreading the word and raising money.
Why are there so many approvals ?
We want it to be perfect. We require approvals for order selections, pricing, logo selections, and mockups. We're all human, and we want to ensure that we're all on the same page every step of the way.
Do you ship to home ?
We only ship direct to location in bulk. We're happy to provide bags for you to individually package items - just let us know, and we'll include them for you at no cost.
What if my item is backordered ?
We track the availability of backordered items for two weeks. If after two weeks, an item is still unavailable, we automatically process a refund and send it directly to your customer for you.
I'm handing out orders and someone ordered the wrong size - what do I do ?
When an order is made on the store, an order confirmation email is sent to the purchaser. Please remind everyone to doublecheck their orders prior to purchasing to ensure they ordered correctly. Since all items are customized specifically for you, we can't un-ring that bell. If an error in sizing is made before production, we can certainly modify their order to reflect the new size. There is no 'rack in the back' that we can exchange items or offer new items as replacements.
Help - I'm missing something !
All orders are tracked from the vendor, to the decorator, and finally to the school. We have a chain of custody that accounts for each individual item so missing items are mitigated. We strongly recommend rechecking each item prior to disbursement - since we've found that confusion sometimes happens when pulling a YXL instead of an XL. We understand, we get excited with new gear too! If you still find that something is missing, please contact us within 7 business days of delivery and we can talk about the options available.
Why these items ?
We've built and serviced over 200 stores for schools just like yours! We've collected data on which items sell the most, which are the most popular, and which items combine quality and value, and hand selected those items to give you the most bang for your buck. Let our experience work for you. If you really want to add something else, let's talk about it!
Can I order staff or faculty items ?
Absolutely! Need a field day shirt? We got you. Need thank you gifts, marathon dance shirts, cups, glasses, lanyards, flannel pants, jackets, zip up hoodies, anything at all - we can get it for you! After all... it's what we do. :-)
When are credit cards charged on the store ?
Orders are taken throughout the campaign and customers are notified when an order is received. All credit cards are processed the day following the campaign close date in one batch.
What happens if a payment fails ?
All failed payments are notified via email by the credit card processing company. whalehook does not have access to any credit card information and cannot re-run a credit card payment. We understand keystroke errors happen, and therefore, we still fulfill all orders. We will deduct the failed payment from the profit check, and when your school distributes the item, they will simply collect the check, and keep the payment.
How is fundraising revenue calculated ?
After all orders have been shipped to the school, we will process a reconciliation to determine your fundraising amount. Your cost of items is deducted from the gross sales of the store, along with shipping and a 13% administrative fee which covers the cost of the platform and credit card processing. We cut you a check, send it off to you, and you can start celebrating your hero status with your school!
Are the new logos mine ?
You betcha! If you would like to add them to your school website, forms, and newsletters, just let us know and we are happy to send them over in various formats to suit your needs.
Can I open the store again ?
Of course - in fact we encourage it! We typically open campaigns in the Fall and Spring, adding various new items to compliment the season. Most of our clients schedule both stores in the Fall, with apparel and start dates pre-determined so it saves time. Easy Peasy.
How are minimums handled ?
The face masks, tumblers, and water bottles all have minimum required purchases. We simply deduct what was ordered on the store from the minimum required quantity and invoice you for the rest. The items are yours to keep, sell, give away, or put on the next store!
What store information do you need to begin ?
We capture most information for the store during the setup process. The only three things we need during the store build is: The campaign close date, a short 'blurb' for the OUR STORY section, and any photos you would like to add to the GALLERY section.
When are my items shipped ?
When the campaign closes, orders are pulled and processed. We order your items, send them to be decorated, and then they are shipped in bulk to your location. This process typically takes between two to four weeks post campaign close.
