There are two options to order online:

Step 3 – Within the SHOP ONLINE page they will be able to select 'Use Online Order Form'

Step 4 - Once you arrive at the order form, you need to click on ADD ORDER to continue with a new order. The customer needs to fill in their first name, last name, phone number - the system will not allow the customer to save the order without these fields filled in. There is an ADDITIONAL INFO box – please include name of person you are supporting to link your order to them.

Step 5 - The customer should go line by line and fill in the quantity of each item they would like. Once they move to another item box, the subtotal will populate at the bottom along with the shipping, tax and total.

Step 6 - Customers have the option to SAVE the order and come back to pay for it later OR they can click on PROCEED TO CHECKOUT.

How do I fix order mistakes from members?

Customers can call our Group Savings Dept at 1.888.478.7397 EXT 3 to request that we delete a pending or unpaid order.

What can our Customer Service Team delete?

  • Order errors
  • Duplicate paid orders
    • This includes instances where a Coordinator has input an order on the supporter’s behalf, but the supporter has also put in the same order and paid already.
  • Unwanted orders
    • Orders that the Coordinator do not want anymore and when they have selected “Pay by Cheque” or “Pay when I submit campaign” option.

Please note: Customer Service Team can only adjust/delete orders before Coordinators complete and submit a campaign.

Important Considerations

  • Only Coordinators can request to delete order other than their own
  • Supporters can only request to have their own orders deleted

Note: You have until 3 days before submission date to make any changes or your delivery date will be affected.

Important: All refunds will be made within 3- 5 business days and customers should see the money back on their credit cards in 3 - 5 business days.


How do I "move" an order from one member to another?

From the main home page, if purchases have been made and the order needs to be transferred to another member, click MOVE beside the name and a pop-up will appear to for the order to be moved under another name. Note: only the Coordinator can make these changes.
