Well over 50% of the photo contest fundraisers that we run offer a spot in a calendar as part of their prize package.
It was a natural progression to build a module for our photo contests that would allow organizations to pre-sale their calendars as part of the entry process and as a separate form (for those who are not entering the contest).
The Calendar Pre-Sale Module is available to anyone who wants to offer calendar pre-sales as part of their photo contest.
How Does It Work?
You give us three pieces of information:
1. How much is the price of each calendar?
2. How much is shipping for each calendar?
3. Can calendars be picked up in-person at your organization (avoiding shipping costs for the purchaser)?
We take this information and create a calendar pre-sale form that look similar to this:
This form is available under the Participate drop-down on your contest site.
You can also share the link to this pre-order form on your website and social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc). The form remains live even after your contest has ended, for continued calendar sales.
The option to pre-order a calendar will also be available for any entrant that wants to pre-order a calendar during the entry process:
You will have access to the information for those who have pre-ordered a calendar in the GGPC Admin under Reports > Presale Orders (private details have been blurred for this example- click to enlarge):
Calendar pre-sales are subject to GGPC transaction fees (http://www.gogophotocontest.com/pricing)
