One of the advantages of TreeRing is that your school community can purchase yearbooks at any time. Orders can be placed even after you set the book to print ready and the deadline for free shipping to the school has passed. These orders are After Deadline Orders.
Here is clarification on the timeline of orders and the shipping details for Before Deadline Orders and After Deadline Orders.
Before Deadline Orders
Books ordered before you set the book to Print Ready (which should be your All Pages Print Ready Date) will be shipped in bulk to the school with free shipping. You will receive the books on or before your Delivery Date. These dates can be found in your Dashboard in Editor Tools.
After Deadline Orders
When someone in your school community orders a book after you set your book to Print Ready, the shipping of the book will be handled one of two ways. Their order will either be:
- Shipped to the school or
- Shipped to the student’s home
The shipping location is based on the date the order is placed. Here’s how it works:
- If a book is ordered after you set the book to Print Ready, but before one week prior to your school’s Delivery Date, the book will be shipped to the school. ***
- If a book is ordered after you set the book to Print Ready, but after one week prior to your school’s Delivery Date, the book will be shipped to the student’s home. The person placing the order will be prompted to enter their shipping address at this time.
- In both cases, shipping will be charged.
*** You may decide that you do not want any After Deadline Orders shipped to the school and turn it off. This means that all After Deadline Orders will be shipped to students' homes.
Caution! Turning this off will likely result in the after deadline books delivered to the students' homes before the books in the bulk shipment are handed out at the school.
You can turn Ship All Book Purchases After Deadline to School off in Edit Yearbook and Settings.
You will see this message. If, after reading it, you want to turn off After Deadline Orders shipped to the school, select OK.
If you want After Deadline Orders sent to the school, please ask your front office to be on the lookout for the individual books so they can get them to you to hand out with the rest of the yearbooks. The easiest way to spot a shipment of TreeRing yearbooks is to look for our TreeRing packaging tape!
