Not samples, I mean do a show, ordering HWC items and sell them for the same price, cash and carry at a Relay for Life night? Just wondering if that's wrong.

Other than getting one of each guest special on a paperwork order, you cannot order HWC products until May 1st.

Yeah I know, but I mean...say you have a RFL event you are setting up at May 15. Cna you order HWC items May first so that people can buy somethig cash and carry at the event? Ormaybe that wouldn't make any sense, just take orders, put it in a show, but then they may not want to pay direct ship on $5 items, you know?

If you wanted to front the money and buy all the products, you could technically submit a show dated May 1st on May 1st to get some inventory.

I'm actually taking preorders right now and will be submitting a show that day.

Okay well, I just heard back and I got tables at 2 RFL events. How should I set this up? What do you about shipping when its an event like this? Do you put yourself as host and have the people pick everything up at your house one day? Help I really don't know what I'm doing with this and I want it to be successful.

Should add that thefirst event is Tuesday, so I wouldn't submit til May 1 because of HWC items.

Thanks

I am in a similar situation and trying to figure out what is best.

I will be selling HWC items at a Breast Cancer walk on May 14th. I would like to have some cash and carry items available and then just take orders once I run out. The problem is....how much should I order ahead of time? Can anyone who has been taking pre orders tell me what the most popular items have been (if any)? I do feel like people will be more likely to buy something if they can walk away with it that day.

Any thoughts?

I'm going around where I live & saying buy 1 of each. Total 20.00 free shipping. NY tax on the 3 items is 1.50....also thinking buy all 3 & get a cook book free...I'm also having a fund raiser on a boat, But i dont want to sell things that night ( Think its tacky) so what i'm doing is ordering the HWC in advance, adding the price for the cruise & giving everyone a PC bag with 1 of each as they are leaving.;)

HwC products

I have gotten a couple of employees at different businesses to buy HWC products and they have all split the cost of direct ship to have it shipped to their business.
So each group of people will have their orders shipped to their own work place. At a Relay for Life event I assume that you can offer them the direct ship option or just have everything shipped to you and deliver the products. I wouldn't want people to come to my house to pick up orders. I would offer to deliver to their work place, homes, unless they are really far and then I would set up a certain time and place to have them pick up their orders.
Such as a library. This would be great for me so my kids can read and stay busy while I got orders from the car for each person.
