A free merch management solution for schools

Skip the need to order and manage merch inventory—we've got it all taken care of.

No Cost Solution

We aim to collaborate with schools to enhance school spirit and streamline merchandising processes. We earn revenue from a combination of print volume deals (B2B) and B2C merch sales. Our model enables us to provide free e-commerce solutions to schools and nonprofits with communities equal to or greater than 500 people.

We execute pre-order campaigns, manage the online store, and activate pop-up shops to sell school merchandise to your school community.

The Perks

Our e-commerce solution relieves schools of the headaches associated with fundraising, ordering, and managing merchandise. Schools must have been part of our program for a minimum of one calendar year (365 days) before becoming eligible for fundraising/ revenue share perks.

After the eligibility period, schools may receive a percentage of the net revenue generated from merchandise sales. The revenue share percentage will be determined by the school's sales performance.
