How to Fundraise with Bravelets




We recently launched a brand new fundraising program and we want to share every bit of how to get your very own fundraiser started with you! This is a perfect and easy way to raise money for your cause and share your story! When someone shops through your personal fundraiser link, you receive 25% of the purchase. Learn about our new fundraiser program below!




It is super easy to start your own fundraiser! Just sign up with the link here: www.bravelets.com/pages/fundraise. or you can hover over the link in our navigation bar that says Fundraise and click on Start Fundraising. Then just fill out the form on that page that looks like this ⬇️





Information you will need to set up your fundraiser: 
Your Name
Your Email
A Password
Your Fundraiser Name
Your PayPal Email
Your Fundraiser Description
A Fundraiser Image


You will then receive a confirmation email with your unique fundraising link that you can share with your followers and the link to your Refersion dashboard which allows you to manage your fundraiser!

Note: Your fundraiser will not show up on our Fundraisers page until you've made your first sale through your fundraiser link!



Once you set up your fundraiser with us and receive your confirmation email, you can log in to your Refersion account (with the email and password you used to sign up for your fundraiser) at https://www.refersion.com/affiliate/login and start managing your fundraiser! Here you can see all of your financial information, copy your unique referral code, see your payment history, message us directly, and update settings. However, you can not update the description or photo for your fundraiser here. To do so you will need to email info@bravelets and we will get that set up for you!
⬆️This is what the page to manage your fundraiser looks like! ⬆️



1. Share your link
This is a super easy way to market your fundraiser! Just share your fundraising link with all of your friends, people at work, your neighbors, and everybody under the sun. Tell your story and what your fundraiser means to you and people will love to help you out!

2. Post on social media
Become a business mogul and start marketing your fundraiser just like a big-time business! You can create your own marketing graphics on Photoshop or Canva. Canva is a super easy and awesome online website where you can design anything you would ever need to market your fundraiser! It has a ton of templates or you can create your own designs. Check it out HERE! If you're not tech-savvy, you can totally repost our social media content too. Just don't forget to link to your fundraiser in the description. Sometimes pictures speak louder than words, so make sure to take a lot of pictures with your Bravelets products!

3. Have a fundraising event
This takes some time and planning, but is a guaranteed way to make sales. You can have an event at your home and invite everyone you know and make sales right there! It is super fun and an awesome way to get your story out.


I want to fundraise for a non-profit, but I don’t work for them.  How can I do that?
Great!  You can create a fundraiser here.  We recommend that you just be very clear in the Fundraiser Name and Description where the money is going.  
Ex:
Fundraiser Name: Stephanie’s Fundraiser for American Cancer Society.
Fundraiser Description:  I will donate all the money I raise through this fundraiser to ACS…

The money you raise will be sent to you via PayPal, and then you can take it and either write a check or make a donation directly on the non-profit’s website.  That way you can make sure it is going to the exact place you want it to go - the right chapter, team page etc.


I don’t have Paypal, can I get a check?
No.  We currently only offer payouts via PayPal, but not to fear - PayPal is super easy to set up!  You can create an account for your non-profit, or a personal account.


What is the payout schedule?
Payments are made on the 10th and the 25th of each month.  Sales made 1-15 paid on the 25, Sales 16 - EOM paid on the 10th


Do I have to pay taxes on the money I receive?
If Bravelets sends you $600 or more in a calendar year, we will send you a W-2.  Please consult with a tax professional for any specific questions.


Are there any fees associated?
No! Sign up and fundraising with us is free.  You earn 25% of everything sold through your link, and we don’t take any fees out of this amount.


Is there a minimum amount to receive a payment?
No! Your donations will be sent to you no matter the amount, on time every 10th & 25th of each month.


I used to have a Brave Page...what happened to those?
We upgraded our system to allow for better visibility to all your sales, on-time payouts and give back 25% on each purchase made! You can reactivate your page by visiting www.bravelets.com/pages/fundraise


What is Refersion?  What is an Affiliate?
Refersion is the software we use to track sales, make payouts etc.  Affiliates are people who drive traffic to a website and earn commission.  We use this software for our fundraising program.


Will my first and last name appear on your website?
Your fundraising page will only list your Fundraiser Name. After your first sale, your fundraiser will appear on our “View Fundraisers” page with your submitted photo, description, and who this fundraiser was started by. If you would like to opt out and not display your name, please let us know and we can remove it from display.


How can I select my color and items for my fundraising page?
Your fundraising page will display every item available for purchase with a donation attached on your page. Your supporters can choose any color, any style to support you and you will still receive 25% of that purchase. We can not customize the products shown on your page at this time.


Is the new system replacing the 10% one or is the 25% just a limited time fundraiser?
Our new 25% donation fundraising program is here to stay and is in the process of becoming our main avenue to have a fundraiser on our platform.


What happens to my 10% Brave Page?
Your Brave Page will be deactivated and you will be mailed a final check with your total donations raised for your 10% Brave Page. You will start getting payments every 2 weeks directly through PayPal for your 25% fundraiser.


Can I update my fundraiser description or photo?
Your Fundraiser Name & Description can be updated at a later date after sign up - with our system now you will have to email info@bravelets.com to update the content. It will be quick and easy and in the future we are working on adding that to your account dashboard.

  1. Very interested in your program! Great solution! I now receive income from online casinos that accept neteller, but your method is also excellent! Thanks for the idea!
