Fixed sales goals are a thing of the past. Say hello to our brand new feature: Flexible Goals.
We’re super excited to announce the arrival of Flexible Goals, a huge improvement to how sales goals work on Bonfire.
So what are Flexible Goals?
When setting up a fund, you’ll still set a sales goal to encourage your supporters. However, now with our new Flexible Goals system, we’ll still print your shirt as long as you’ve sold the minimum quantity needed to print - regardless of whether you reach your sales goal or not. Even better, the more shirts you sell, the more profit you make per shirt! There’s a lot to love about Flexible Goals — keep reading to learn more:
As low as 5 shirts needed to print
One of the biggest reasons we think you’ll love Flexible Goals is you’ll never have to worry about not selling enough shirts to be printed. With flexible goals, as long as you’ve met or exceeded the minimum sales needed to print (as low as 5 shirts), your design is guaranteed to be printed. This means you have a much better chance of success, regardless of what you set your sales goal to be.
The more you sell, the more you make per shirt
With Flexible Goals, you’ll make the most money possible per shirt sold no matter how many you sell. Your profit per shirt increases based on the total quantity sold, no matter what. For example, if you set your sales goal at 50 and end up selling 104 shirts (yay!), your base cost and profit per shirt will be calculated using a quantity of 104 instead of 50. Yet another reason to love Flexible Goals! If you are curious what your current cost and profit per shirt is, view the profit calculator in your admin panel. Slide the shirt sales estimator to the right to see what your profit will be when you meet and exceed your sales goal.
How do I start using Flexible Goals?
All new funds started will automatically be setup on our new Flexible Goals system. There’s nothing extra you need to do - simply start a new fund (or re-launch an existing fund) to take advantage of Flexible Goals, and start earning more money today!
