Shirt and Simple started as a middle-man company. We basically referred orders to a certain print shop and received a cut of each shirt sold. We also had all of the control over SaS admin areas. As we talked to different printers around the country, however, we learned that there was a real desire for partner-side control. Therefore, we created the Shirt and Simple franchise business model. We're turning over complete control of our site to your business! You decided exactly which products you want to offer and at what prices. You control location variables, web content, discounts, and much more. You also receive each payment as soon as it comes in through a customize merchant account. Our reporting and online management tools make it incredibly simple to stay organized and integrate this powerful online service into your everyday operations. Pricing varies slightly by location (we create a new contract with each partner), but prices are monthly and usually look something like this...
Orientation - This is free! We provide you with the support and documentation to get familiar and comfortable with the service. We supply much of the content you need to have your service up and running in now time at all. Everything is automated and you can make most changes to product, price, content, and location variables in real-time.
Merchant Setup (currently free!) - In order to integrate online payment with your company's bank (so that you receive the money you'll be collecting online) we are required to either setup or manipulate your credit card processor (merchant company) into our site's infrastructure. This is the only setup fee you will be required to pay and the price usually depends on your current setup. Costs range from $200 - $450. If you do not do so already, you may also be required to cover any online merchant fees. We do not make any profit off of these fees...they are required by companies like Visa and MasterCard to allow for online purchasing. --- SPECIAL --- We are currently waiving this fee for all new partners!
Hosting - Now FREE! - We cover all hosting, domain name, and other web-related costs so you don't need to worry about them! We also cover the annual secure site certificate cost for the website.
Clipart License - To use our online design center you must own a license of the Clipart Explosion Gallery by Nova Development. This cost between $99 and $200 (one time cost) and we can help you acquire it if you don't already own a copy.
Franchise Fee - This is a monthly fee that varies by contract. A typlical licensing fee carries a monthly cost of $300 with an initial year-long contract. This includes a full website, design center, proof manager, catalog, and admin panel. Extended license and multiple location options are also available. We are also open to discussing percentage-of-revenue contracts.
Special Offer - We are currently waiving the setup fee for all new partners! Sign up today and we'll cover that cost for you!
Optional Costs - Any additional costs are completely up to you. We offer professional website and content design, a number of marketing packages (included professional video, graphic design, internship programs, and jumpstart packages).
