Jumble Trail is a low cost self funded community orientated business. We haven't made a profit yet! Everything currently goes back in to the business. As a result we set a base line for all events which was a flat fee of £2 to cover running costs.
It's up to you whether you charge more than £2 for your event.
As a Champion your stall is free and will be created without going through the payment gateway, so no banking charges for us
Everyone else that joins will be automatically asked to make payment before their stall is published. These monies will be shared out after the event and your portion returned. As a rule of thumb the average £5 stall fee works out as follows:-
Revenue per stall: £5
External banking fee: 30p
JT gets: £1.88
Champion gets: £2.82
So if you get 10 stalls you'll have £28.20 to play with on printing and promotion, 20 stalls £56.40 and so forth. It's a good idea to have a target number of stalls ahead of the event so that you have something to work towards, and more importantly a predicted budget to play with.
It's very simple to start a new Jumble Trail click on "start" in the top navigation on the home page and then follow the instructions.
You will need to decide where (the default is a one mile radius from the address you enter) and when you want the trail to take place. You will also need to decide if you want to charge stall holders for being listed. You may wish to charge to cover any printing costs you incurr or if you are trying to raise money for a good cause
You can set-up a Jumble Trail anywhere (worldwide) at the moment though we can only take stall regsitration fees in GBP.
The quickest way is to go to jumbletrail.com, login and then click on home. From there you should click on your profile and that will list the trails you have joined and stalls you have set-up.
Click on the stall and in green letters you should see the option to upload photos.
At anytime when you are logged in and on the trail event page you can use the icons on the right to access your stall, print out window posters and flyers and share the event via social media and email. The more people on your street taking part the more likely visitors will come.
Please email email@example.com and let us know what is happening, in the worst case scenario we can cancel the event, but it's up to you as the Champion to take a pragmatic view. It's very important to take other participants into consideration, as time spent (preparing and participating in the trail) is valuable.
If you’ve committed to a date you should try and carry on regardless if for some reason you can’t do it, then a delegate should be found. Keep people informed as there may be someone on your trail that can take the reigns.
If you do decide you need to cancel then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Usually within two weeks after the event has taken place we will electronically transfer all the stall fees collected to the Jumble Trail Champion's nominated account less card transaction fees and a 30% platform fee which goes towards maintaining the Jumble Trail website. It is the responsibility of the champion to onward distribute any funds where stall holders have been asked to contribute to a specific cause or charity.
If you absolutely must cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, in the first instance please contact the Champion to let them know asap.
Please also drop us an email email@example.com, so we can remove your magpie from the map.
If you would like a refund please contact firstname.lastname@example.org we are able to refund your fee, minus £1 (to cover the banking charge) if you do so one week before the event. If you do not request a refund the money will stay in the kitty and go towards the promotion of the Jumble Trail.
Any refunds are usually processed within two weeks after the event, we process everything in one go to cut down on administration.
