Frequently Asked Questions

When will I get paid?

Our regularly scheduled payouts include SEPTEMBER (for fundraising activities completed from June-September), JANUARY (for fundraising activities completed from October-January), and MAY (for fundraising activities completed from February-May).

I emailed my proof but didn’t get a reply!

The auto-reply only gets sent out once a day per email address. If you email more than one proof a day, you will only receive an auto-reply for the first promo sent. If you received a reply for the first promo, and send all promos the same way, there shouldn’t be a problem.

How do I know when checks have been mailed?

After we have tabulated all payouts and have checks printed and signed, we will send an email to the Reps whose schools are receiving a payout for that period. All checks must be picked up at our store.

Why does the money I earn need to be paid to my school PTO instead of to me?

The way our non-profit is set up, all distributions must go directly to the school PTOs, who are 501(c)3 organizations. It also makes it much easier to track if a check is lost.

Why are you no longer funding the Transportation Fund?

For many years the board was saving money to purchase a building. When we decided not to purchase the building, we distributed the money to the schools through the Transportation Fund. We continued to support the Fund until all money saved was distributed.
