Seasonal or short-term campaigns are a great opportunity to utilize our Pop Up model, which offers an ordering “window” that allows your designated buyers to place an order for pre-approved merchandise during a 2-3 week period.
This option minimizes inventory risk because it does not require inventory up front. Selected users can order online during the pre-authorized ordering window. Once the orders are all in, they are combined into one production order.
This option is great for short-term promotions like golf tournaments and holiday gifting programs.
“Can I keep my ordering window open longer than 2-3 weeks?”
So that’s a common question, and the answer is…nope.
Eh, that sounds a bit harsh – how about we don’t recommend it.
It’s a very valid question, but why don’t we recommend it?
Because it takes at least 2 weeks to produce the goods after the ordering window closes – and the buyer that places an order on launch day usually doesn’t want to wait 30+ days to get the goods.
Make sense? It’s kind of a trade-off: the inventory risk is LOW but it takes a bit longer to deliver.
