Campaign Submission and Delivery
It is important to remember that a campaign must still be submitted even if all orders have been paid. Submitting a campaign will prompt us to receive and print your actual order slip and will then be forwarded to warehouse for packing and shipping.
This process can only be completed by the Coordinator and can be done easily online with the steps below:
Step 1 - Sign into your account. Ensure that you are in Coordinator's Mode.
Step 2 - Click the Submit Group Button located at the top middle of the screen
You will be directed to the screen that will explain to you what the submission is and what it entails. Click Continue.
Step 3 - If you qualify for a rebate, a screen requesting for Rebate information will pop up. Complete this form and once done, click Continue.
Ensure that you use the correct payee and address information here. Any errors will result in a delay of the mailout of your rebate cheque. Any re-issuance due to incorrect Payee or address information will be subjected to a processing fee. Please see Terms & Conditions online for more information.

Step 4 – The next window will show you the option to input delivery instructions:
Note: The delivery instructions will be communicated to the carrier, and they will try their best to accommodate it. For example, use a buzz code, use side door etc.
Important: We are unable to make specific time/date requests for delivery as this will be in the carrier’s control. So please avoid putting a specific date or time in this section.
Step 5 – Order Review & Payment. Here you will be asked to review your total sales and payment that you need to make. You can always USE YOUR PROFIT to pay for any outstanding orders not paid via directly online with credit card.
- Profit Applied towards balance owed option means that the amount of balance owed will be deducted from total profit. If there is any remaining profit this will be mailed out to customer in a cheque form.
- Customer to pay Balance owed directly option means that customerwill receive the total profit amount in their cheque and will have to pay the balance owing upfront.
Step 6 – Select your Payment Method.

If you're paying via cheque please allow 5 – 7 transit days for the cheque to get to us plus another 10 business days for processing.

If your campaign reaches $4,000 before taxes and shipping, you will qualify for an additional 2.5% rebate. If your campaign exceeds $8,000 before taxes and shipping, you will qualify for an additional 5% rebate.
Rebate cheques are issued a minimum of four (4) to six (6) weeks after the Seasonal Program has closed. It is the responsibility of the Coordinator to input the correct name and spelling for the payee at the time of submission, also input the correct mailing address. Any processing fees for any cheque re-issuance due to name change and stale-dated will be deducted from the rebate amount.
Rebates are available for the Seasonal Fundraising Program. Customers with multiple campaigns where the combined order totals have exceeded the minimum rebate threshold will receive 1 rebate cheque for all their Fundraising Campaign sales.
The rebate cheque amount is calculated based on the total product sales of the Seasonal Fundraising campaign. It does not factor in the shipping fee or the provincial tax of the Coordinator’s mailing province.
Purdys reserves the right to modify rebate levels at any time without notice.

Add-on orders explained
Once the submission is completed and the order is in progress, only the Coordinator can add an order they have missed when the original Campaign can't be reopened. Coordinators may request an add-on order after the submission of their campaign and before the program deadline only if their campaign is greater than $500 (before taxes and shipping charges).Addon orders are eligible for the 25% profit, Coordinator must associate their addon order with a campaign of $500 (before taxes and shipping charges) or more. This additional order must meet the current minimum amount for delivery, be paid in full, and be delivered to the same address as the main order.
The minimum order amount should be greater or equal to $100. Add-on orders are subject to their individual delivery range. The Coordinator is responsible for tracking the delivery on the carrier's website.
Important: Campaigns less than $500 (before taxes and shipping charges) are not eligible for any addon orders.
