How Much Commission Can We Expect?
The amount varies from school to school; we provide free leaflets, samples, and posters along with helpful tips and advice to help schools boost the commission they receive. Parent response rates vary but typically fall between 10% and 40% (though one Leicester school achieved 97%!); with a 30% commission rate, this typically yields £3.00 per parent who orders meaning that a school with 300 pupils can expect between £90 and £270. This amount might be less than you can achieve at, for example, a school summer fayre but the effort and cost required is very low. A proportion of schools who join our scheme will fail completely and there is a section in our Fundraising Guide that gives advice on how to prevent this from happening.
When And How Do We Get Paid?
Commission is paid out each year in October; a cheque is automatically sent to the school (made out to the school or to the PTA), so you don’t need to remember to request your commission.
Does The Stikins ® Fundraising Scheme Cost Anything?
No. Everything is supplied completely free of charge to help you to maximise your school fundraising.
How Good Are Stikins ® Name Labels?
Obviously WE think they are brilliant – but then we would say that! We have been supplying Stikins ® since 2003 and millions of our name labels have been bought by parents who have chosen to order them year after year after year. Our name labels save parents time and money because the same label can be used to label clothing and all school items. They are made with a unique Stikins ® adhesive, which has been specially developed by us and is not available on any other name label product. Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it – there are thousands of independent customer reviews available for you to read on our website.
How Do We Set Up A Web Link To Double Our Rate Of Commission?
It is extremely simple, with no complicated programming or costs involved. All the person who looks after your site needs to do is to copy and paste some text from our site onto your school site. The text they will need is here: www.stikins.co.uk/schools-linking-information.php. The link will automatically add your fundraising number to any order that is placed by following that link (although parents can, of course, order in any way that they want to and quote your fundraising number themselves). You will need to tell us when you have added a link so that we can confirm it is working correctly and then we will double your commission!
How Is Commission Recorded From Parent Orders?
We allocate a unique fundraising number to every school so all parents need to do is quote your school’s fundraising number when they order and commission will automatically be added to your school’s commission total.
