FAQ – What Is A School Commission Code?
FAQ: FAQ – What Is A School Commission Code?
Some of our customers notice the field marked “Enter School Commission Code” and aren’t quite sure what that means.
Here’s a brief explanation of our commission scheme and what those all-important codes mean.
At Label Planet we run a commission scheme that allows schools, PTAs, and organisations to earn commission on sales of Stikins ® and Trons ® placed by individuals with a connection to that school or organisation. This provides the school, PTA, or organisation with an opportunity to raise money that they can put towards existing and ongoing projects.
For example, schools can earn money whenever a parent or guardian of a child attending that school purchases name labels for their child’s school uniform and equipment; nursing and care facilities can earn money when residents or relatives/friends acting on behalf of a resident purchase name labels for labelling personal items, clothing, and linen; and organisations such as Guides and Scouts, Youth Groups, and Activity Groups can also earn money whenever their members purchase name labels.
THIS IS WHERE THE SCHOOL COMMISSION CODE COMES IN
Every school, PTA, and organisation that signs up to our commission scheme is allocated a unique reference number/code. For any order placed where that code is quoted, commission will be allocated to the relevant school, PTA, or organisation.
Commission accumulates throughout the year and is paid out in October; the school, PTA, or organisation can then use that money for any ongoing projects that require extra funding.
Schools, PTAs, and organisations should make their unique code available to parents, relatives, and/or members so they have it to hand when they order.
Commission Code FAQ:
- I forgot to quote my school/PTA/organisation’s code when I ordered, what do I do?
Simply get in touch with us and let us know the code or name of the school/PTA/organisation you are supporting and we will add the code to your order.
- I know my school/PTA/organisation is registered but I don’t know what code to use, what do I do?
First, check their website or any letters/emails you have received from them to see if you can find the code. Most of our affiliate partners do put their code on their website, send out leaflets displaying their code, or send out a letter and/or email. If you cannot find it, then please get in touch with us and we can confirm the code for you.
- I don’t have a code, can I still place an order?
Of course! Just place your order and leave the school code field empty.
- If I enter the code do I get a discount?
No. The commission code is NOT a discount code. It simply lets us know that you are supporting a particular school/PTA/organisation and want us to award commission to them.
- Does it cost me anything?
No. In fact our commission scheme is completely free – for participating affiliates and for individuals who support those affiliates. By entering the code you are simply helping to raise money for a particular school/PTA/organisation – all while buying name labels that will help you keep your child’s belongings safe and organised!
