After Deadline Orders

One of the advantages of TreeRing is that your school community can purchase books at any time. 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 on or 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 Chief Editor Dashboard.

 

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:

  1. Be shipped to the school OR
  2. Be shipped to the person’s home

The shipping location is based on the date the person places their order. 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 person’s home. The person placing the order will be prompted to enter their shipping address at this time.

In both cases, the person will have to pay a shipping charge.

So, please ask your front office to be on the lookout for the individual books and to get them to you so you can hand them out with the rest of the books. The easiest way to spot a shipment of TreeRing yearbooks is to look for our TreeRing packaging tape!

    How do you know who ordered it after the deadline?

    Hi Agatha - In your All Orders list the after deadline orders will have an * by the order number. You will also receive an email from us alerting you to after deadline orders being shipped to the school.

    How long after the deadline can parents purchase a yearbook? We will be starting a new school year and a parent wants to buy 2016-2017 yearbook.

    Hi Tyra - There is no deadline for ordering books from previous years. Parents will always be able to log into their TreeRing account and order yearbooks from previous school years.

    Good afternoon, I'm trying to make sure I understand fundraising and after deadline. Our deadline for setting our book to print ready is tomorrow, 04/24. is that when it is sent to the printer? So all orders placed after tomorrow will not earn us the fundraising amount? I have written in my notes that we still earned the fundraiser through the week prior to our delivery date.

    Hi Susan - Here is an article which explains how the fundraiser is collected and disbursed: https://treering.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201078970-Fundraiser-Adding-Amount-to-Book-Details-and-Check-Distribution

    Hi Debbie. In an above response to Janis you wrote "The fundraiser amount is collected for the school until the book is sent to the printer. At that time the fundraiser check process will begin." however, in the article link you sent to Susan it says that fundraising amount will be collected for the school up until the "delivery date shown on the dashboard". Can you clarify which is correct?

    Hi Stacy - I'm sorry for the confusion. The information in the Help Center article is correct with the fundraiser being collected for the school until the delivery date.

    My school "delivery date" is set for the 18th of May and we will be handing out the books in a big reveal/signing party on the 21st of May. Can I guarantee that no books will be received in students homes before that date if they order late?

    Hi Andrea - Parents will not be prompted for their shipping address until 5/21/18 so all ADOs placed before then will ship to the school.

    I need any book shipped to school to arrive by May 23 – they should be shipped to home starting May 18th if you can change this. It seems that orders are taking about 4 days to get here. Thank you
