Ashay by the Bay Onsite Book Fair
The Most Fun and Educational
An Ashay by the Bay Onsite Book Fair is probably the most fun and educational but it does require a little more planning. It can be held for 1 to 2 days and needs to be scheduled 4 to 6 weeks in advance. This prearranged event also requires a $500 minimum order, which can be created from show sales, preorders and commitments from parents and teachers. This type of book fair can only be scheduled for the Bay Area of California. Approval is also based on distance and sales potential. The registration fee is $35.
How Does It Work
Your Event Coordinator and our Sales Representative will customize your book selection and manage the event. The majority of the books selected can be seen in our online collection. It is really important to start promoting early and use Social Media to reach your supporters. To help with advertising, we will provide an online listing and supply you with a promotion kit that includes posters and a wish list.
Planning and Set Up
Generally, you can expect the wire rack displays and books delivered on the day of the event along with a Master Inventory List. Setting up the displays takes a few hours so please allow enough time. For a two-day event, books will be restocked the second day. At the end of the last day, books need to be placed back in the containers to be returned by the sales representative. All sales receipts will be counted and the pre-closeout form completed. Within 10 business days you will receive a commission check for payment to settle your account.
Purchases can be made with cash or credit card via our wireless merchant machine. If for some reason, a book is ordered that we cannot supply we will promptly refund the customers money. But if we ship an item and the customer wants to return it. There are no refunds. They can only exchange the item for the same item. Customers should allow 2 weeks maximum for delivery.
Maximize Your Earnings
At an Onsite event, you can maximize your sales dollars. Family, friends and supporters can purchase books and then donate them to your school. In addition, you can choose to do a Combination Onsite and Online Book Fair. Doing so should really increase your sales. For an Online Book Fair we will provide a Book Fair Code that can be used online at checkout. This Code will be listed on our website with your listing. These sales are automatically tracked and tallied by our shopping cart. This event can run for 15 or 30 days.
