Combining Shows Easily?

I have a show that doesn't look like it is going to get to that $150 mark, so I'm thinking of combining it with a show I'm having this Saturday. Is there an easier way to move over the orders rather than removing them and re-entering them in the new show? I would have to call two people to get their CC information again unless there's an easier way.

Just input the orders for your upcoming show under the show you already have in p3. You can assign Saturday's host as the host of the show.

Is the current host close? If she is, you could make her a co-host so she can at least get a discount (after checking with Sat.'s host to see if that is OK). It will help the Sat host with sales and the current host will get a little benefit -- win-win. If the current host didn't try very hard, I personally wouldn't do that but just add the orders to Saturday.

I've done it before where I take the order that someone has- move the items to their Wishlist. Then on the second show, you can add that guest in, and then go to their WishList tab and move it back into the cart. Since the guest info is automatically in there (If you "add to contact list" first)- then it's not too tough.

If you don't have anything entered for your Saturday host, then just change the Host name to your 2nd host as someone else suggested and keep the entries as is and just add to it.


Not sure about the co-hosting suggestion. I thought that the co-hosting would split the FPV in half. Not sure it would be that fair to the 2nd host if she does most of the work for a show, and doesn't get all of her FPV. I know I wouldn't like it if I were a host. If her show is short or low, then maybe.


Depending on HOW short it is, I have gathered other individual orders (checked with friends/neighbors) and put a personal order on there of my own (entered my DH as a guest), and got it to $150. if it isn't much, then you can either give her all of the benefits or some of them. I did it in November...lady only had $80. I had individual orders that I could add to it and brought it to the $150. Because this woman did NOTHING, and took over 3 months to do it ;), I put the show in MY name, and offered her items at 15%. She didn't take me up on it (she was embarassed by the results). I had done a ton of work going to her office for the show (then got kicked out) - made 3 desserts (cheap ones), and then barely made $16 on her? No, kept that show for myself and got the host special.

So there are a couple ways you can approach it.

YOu can split the FPV anyway you want, so you can give all to the new host and none to the 1st host, just a discount for her.

This is why I ALWAYS write the # down, even if I'm closing with a host over the phone and can type it right in. I'd rather have record of the # myself in case there is a problem later.

I missed the part about the Credit Cards....yes. I learned that lesson too. Unfortunately, there isn't anyway to transfer that. The ONLY way I know of is if they were Online Orders. You can go back into the ONline order and see the CC # that way (upper right section of the order if I remember correctly).


In that case, you could change the HOst Name on the 1st show if the 2nd host doesn't have anything yet. (Be sure to check the online shows to make sure...)
