As a consideration for processing Holiday Shopping Card sales, we offer the ability to use SKU processing.
This process will help keep sensitive customer information, including credit card information, secure and removes the possibility of sales associates writing and collecting incorrect information.
Retailer Participant SKU Process Requirements
Participant agrees to set up a non-merchandise SKU titled “The Holiday Shopping Card” to prompt associates to input the $75 sale amount of The Card. The Holiday Shopping Card sales will be processed through the Retailer’s point of sale system.
A volunteer will drop off an allocated amount of Cards/directories, along with marketing materials and signage.
“The Holiday Shopping Card” and the $75 charge will appear as a line item on purchaser’s receipt, EXCLUDING sales tax.
Participant will use this SKU to process all Holiday Shopping Card sales and any donations above the $75 amount.
Participant is responsible for credit card processing/handling fees.
Participant agrees to remit a report detailing all Holiday Shopping Card sales and payment for total funds collected through the Retailer’s point of sale system to the American Cancer Society c/o The Holiday Shopping Card within 30 days of the event completion.
A volunteer will pick up all unsold Holiday Shopping Cards and marketing materials beginning the week of October 31, 2022.
Final Payment of Total Donations to the American Cancer Society
At the end of The Holiday Shopping Card program (Sunday, October 30, 2022), a total will be calculated by Retailer’s accounting department for all payments made to The Holiday Shopping Card SKU for each participating store. Within 30 days of the completion of the HSC event, a check will be issued by Retailer to the American Cancer Society for the total amount of SKU Card sales and any additional donations, and the check will be sent to the American Cancer Society c/o The Holiday Shopping Card, PO Box 631661, Houston, TX 77263.
Participating retailer will also supply the American Cancer Society a detailed report showing the number of Cards sold. This report will be cross referenced with the number of Holiday Shopping Cards that Retailer received to ensure that all sold and unsold Cards are accounted for.
