What Is Booster.com


Online T Shirt Fundraising Programs are not my usual suspect for a product/program review but recently I have been seeing all kinds of Tv commercials promoting Booster.com.

For any of you that have not seen these commercials yet it is basically promoting a way to raise money for a particular cause, organization, or group that is near and dear to your heart by designing T shirts and selling them is booster.com legit or scamonline.

This fundraising company has been helping charities now since the early part of 1996 but just seems to have became popular since the latter part of 2013.

Also Booster is making claims that it has helped well over 35,000 different charity events and groups ranging any where from high school football teams to cancer research but none of which can actually be proven since this company is not spoke of often by it’s users.

In this Booster.com T shirt fundraiser program review I will be showing you the specifics of this crowdfunding website and just how legitimate it actually is.

So lets get started by going over just a few pros and cons of using this company.

What are the Complaints from Booster Users?


Although this website has had it’s URL address since 1996 it still has not yet been registered with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) but however the company that owns this website has had less than a handful of complaints (that have been resolved) over the last 3 years .

With that said here are a list of Pros and Cons that people have had when using Booster.com.

Pros 

My Booster.com T shirt design

  • No money up front to start
  • money back guarantee
  • No shipping on your part
  • don’t have to have your own design to use on the shirts
  • don’t have to buy anything
  • Free design support
  • Outstanding Customer Support
  • free booster.com website to promote your shirts

Cons

  • on occasions text on the shirts is misspelled
  • charge an extra $5 for shipping per shirt if delivered individually
  • Logos and designs sometimes are not centered on shirt
  • wrong logos on the wrong shirts
  • don’t sell at least 20 shirts they are not made and money is refunded
  • no freedom with website design
  • shirts design falls apart after a few washes

What about Booster.com Cost & Support?


We can answer this question by asking another. And that is…www Booster com review

Have you ever used Customink?

The reason that this question can answer the other is because Customink is responsible for the customer service, T shirt Design, shipping, and is who pays you for the shirts that you have sold.

If have ever used Customink than you are probably already aware that they put a high emphasis on customer satisfaction and will pretty much do whatever it takes to keep their customers happy.

Sounds good from a consumer stand point- Right?

The T shirt design works in the same fashion as well. Except that you don’t have quite as many designs to choose from as you do with the Customink website nor do you have to worry about putting up any money to get the process started.

There are 4 steps to be up and running with your own website for selling your newly designed fundraising T shirts, sweaters, or Hooded Sweatshirts and they are:

  • Designing your shirt for your cause
  • Set up your account (Your name, mailing address, Pay Pal info,how you want them shipped)what is booster.com t shirt fundraiser
  • Tell “Your Story” (the why and what you are doing) and name your new booster website
  • Launch your new fundraising campaign and get help from Booster’s sharing tools to help spread the word

Also (like Customink) this online T shirt Fundraising program offers free design support to anyone that may need a helping hand on designing their custom  made T Shirt.

This is done by either getting a call from one of the members of the free design support team or by collaborating through emails. So what does good ol’ Booster get out of the deal?

Of course their is someone setting on the back end of this program but with all things considered it’s not a bad idea for making a buck or two online.

See the catch to this sweet sounding system is……

First off you have one month to sell how ever many shirts you decided on selling or your order is basically cancelled and all the money sent back to it’s rightful owner if you were not able to sell at least 20 shirts.

Let’s say you did sell more than 20 but less than your quota, What happens then ? online T Shirt Fundraising programsThis is a screen shot from the FAQ section of this site that sums up how exactly they go about dealing with not meeting your set quota and this is just one thing that sets them apart from other online T shirt fundraising programs.

However either way it goes quota or not they are going to get at least a 2.9% commission from the final total of all of your shirt sales plus service fees and 6% if you do not offer the buyer a chance to give another donation during the checkout process.

Which leads me to ask you the next question for you to ponder upon.

BECOME A FREE MEMBER OF THE UNIVERSITY THAT TAUGHT ME TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE 

Is Booster.com Legit?


As I said at the start of my review this type of company is not my cup of tea as far as reviews go and I had to do quite a bit more digging around and even signed up to this fundraising program for myself to get a real feel for it.

During all this I noticed something that stood out to me as a bit odd especially for it being advertised on Tv.online t shirt fundraising program booster.com And that is that there are very few reviews of this program.

So if they are a scam than not very many people are talking about it but I’m sure there has to be a catch to it somewhere.

But until I can find one…..

In my opinion I would have to say that while Booster is getting their fair share of your money pie it is still a decent way to make honest money online because the more shirts that you can sell the more money that you will make.

See, you can sign up to this program and sell shirts for whatever cause you want even if your cause happens to be a selfish one for making you money online.

That is well with in their terms and conditions as long as you are telling the people contributing what it is they are contributing to.

Well, that’s enough of me veering off my beaten path and doing reviews into online T shirt Fundraising programs but all the same I hope it (Booster.com Review) helped and that you were able to take something away from it.

Oh, If you have a Booster.com experience of your own, share it, and tell other users about the legitimacy of this crowdfunding program.

Thanks for Reading

  1. Hi Nicole.

    I am sure this is all water under the bridge since your comment is from nearly two years ago but I have been buying products from Customink since March of 2016 quite regularly and they have NEVER sent me an inferior product and my orders vary from 80 to over 400 items at a time.

  2. To be honest with you Jennie Probably not much at all separates these companies.

    Sure the prices might fluctuate a bit but all and all they are all pretty close running mates as far as what they can do.

    I do know that with booster they will allow you access and help you set up a website set up for your own personal fundraising reasons.

    Hope you find what you are looking for and that I was able to help you out if even only a little bit.
    Jason

  3. I’m curious if there are any Booster.com vs. traditional print-on-demand site comparison reviews. What makes Booster.com different than Cafepress, Zazzle, or any of the other stores of this nature? Are the baseprices for shirts cheaper? They all print the same thing, what is it that Booster.com is offering that creates a larger profit margin?

    Researching for a non-profit client, and learning what I can.
    Thanks for this article!

  4. Hello Mary,

    I am sorry to hear that and I would like to thank you for informing me (and all that would read this) to this certain injustice of others intellectual properties.

    I hope that you were able to get this taken care of and some sort of compensation for your troubles.

    Thanks again for taking the time to share this with me and the visitors to my site.
    Jason

  5. I found that Booster is good for fundraising BUT if you upload your copyright artwork and it is a good seller, no doubt you will find that in the future someone else will be using it, including BOOSTER to raise money for themselves. Then you have a long battle with them to get them to stop. And there great customer service becomes non existent.

  6. Hello Cocodifre,

    I am not sure which state it is you live in but most have a limit you must reach before you have to pay taxes. Such as you can make up to $500 where I live before you must pay taxes. As to why Booster didn’t send you a 1099, I am not sure, unless they are expecting you to file it as you would for a charity because business wise that is what they are considered to be making shirts for.

    I am not tax expert but I don’t think you have to have a 1099 or W2 or anything like that for claiming a certain amount under a charity. I believe you have to have given a particular amount before you can claim that.

    But again not a Tax Professional.

    I never bothered claiming it because I was under my states minimum limit.

    Sorry but I am afraid I can not answer that question to your liking. Mainly because every state is a little bit different when it comes to things such as filing taxes for what you have paid out to a charity.

    That is something that you might want to call H&R Block or a local Tax Preparation Business and ask to see if they could answer it for you or better yet go to the Booster website and find the customer service # and see if someone on their support team could answer that for you.

  7. Hi Jason, I want to know why don’t provide 1099 misc income forms. My daughter did a tshirt fundraiser to get funds to help pay her college tuition. How is she suppose to report that income if they don’t provide her a 1099?

  8. Hello Nicole,

    First I would like to say thank you for taking the time to help and raise money to support such a meaningful cause. In this day and age with so much doom and gloom being caused by our fellow man seeing folks like yourself go out of their way to help others helps restore my faith in man kind.

    It’s good to know that there are still some good hearted people left in the world.

    There has been quite a spike in the amount of Booster Commercials as of late and I don’t blame you a bit for wanting to do your homework on them so to speak.

    For that reason I would like to point out that they are in the business of making money for their selves first and help causes succeed second.

    Granted their are a few different factors that will determine you getting the maximum amount of funds raised for your cause. One thing I would to bring to your attention is that you stand to raise more money by selling the hooded sweatshirts and sweatshirts than you do by just selling t-shirts.

    Keep in mind that shipping can become a bit pricey and as well as the shirts themselves if you go with more extensive designs.

    Basically you want to make sure it is an attractive shirt folks will want to buy but at the same time you will stand to make much more for your cause with keeping your design as simple as you can.

    I have had a number of people emailing me to tell me how the Booster company took a bigger percentage of the final total than what they had thought they would. This is mainly due to the shipping costs and because they did not sell all of the shirts they had made.

    Oh and one last thing… I would like to suggest that you try and get some kind of tally on the amount of shirts you feel confident that you will sell and that you think you can sell. Then try to find a number between them two to use as the total number of shirts you order.

    I would like to see you have great success with this so I will offer one more bit of advice… You will be given an amount of shirts that you must start with (20 or so) do not do the minimum amount because you will end up paying more to Booster.com than are able to give to your cause.

    I wish you the best of luck Nicole and am thankful to you for sharing your comment here. I hope that you will come back and let us know how your fundraising campaign worked out.

    All the best and God Bless,
    Jason

  9. Thanks for this review! I’m trying to raise money for the breast cancer walk and keep seeing commercials for this all of a sudden. Seems like a great way to raise money but I wouldn’t want my friends and family to get shirts that aren’t top quality. I appreciate the honest review! Will have to think about this a little more now though.

  10. Neil,

    I too am not into the whole t-shirt gig but these guys are very much so legit and you can use them for any cause that happens to speak to your heart.

    It’s good to hear that there are still folks out there that want to do good for others.

    Especially in this crazy world we live in now a days.

    Absolutely, do some research into them on your own and I am sure that you will find the same that this review shows you.
    All the best,
    JASON

  11. Hi there,

    I’m glad you found this post to your liking and I hate hear that you don’t have them where you live.

    Where exactly is that because I am pretty sure that you can take advantage of Booster.com no matter where you are on the map.
    Hope to hear back from you soon,
    Jason

  12. Hey, Jason

    T-shirt businesses are all very new to me and are not really something that “floats my boat” so to speak. However, I’m into fundraising because I believe in giving back to society and if this is something legit which helps others, then I’m all for it.

    I will have to look in to this :)

    Thanks, Neil

  13. Great article, very informative! We don’t have those “raising money by selling t-shirts” campaigns over here, but it is a good idea. Regards, Kristina

  14. I really appreciate you commenting here with your opinion.

    I am all up for folks expressing their opinions but I’m pretty sure you missed the point I was trying to make with this Booster.com review.

    Reason being because this is not a review warning people of the dangers of this t-shirt fundraising site but instead one that is informing folks that it is a legitimate way to raise money not only for charities but for their own personal reasons as well.

    I hope maybe that you will read over this review again and then kindly tell me why you believe it to be a great warning for folks trying to make extra cash online.

    Either way thanks for you expressing your opinion.
    Jason

  15. Don’t know much about this but the review was great and it is a great warning to those who are looking into making money or raising money for charity.

  16. Unfortunately Donna you are right,

    The T-shirt selling gig has spiked in interest over the last few months but you have a great idea about fan pages.

    Jason

  17. It is absolutely a legit way to raise money.

    I’m glad you liked it Terence

    Thanks for reading,
    Jason

  18. Great Post, there has been a lot of promo on t-shirt sales these days. Seems like a good way to bring in extra cash on fanpages and such. Thanks for sharing the info.

  19. Great informative article! It really seems like a legit company to me, and you could definitely use it to make money online if you are into T-shirt selling and all.

  20. It’s great to hear that you liked it Latoya.

    I try to make sure that I break down decisions like these so people can easily judge if it is something that they want to be involved with.

    Thank you for your kind words,
    Jason

  21. Very informative post! I especially like how you divided it up into the pros and cons. That makes it very easy for anyone to quickly identify whether or not this product is for them. Great Job!

  22. you are very welcome and I am especially glad that you found it of interest.

    There is no doubt that this is a wonderful program for promoting a great charity cause like that one and I wish you and your company the best in your fund raising efforts.

    Thanks for reading,
    Jason

  23. Great site, love the information and how you put it all in plain English. Where I work we often run charity events for Breast Cancer, I will let them know about the T Shirts Thanks for all the great info

  24. It does usually take you selling at least 50 to 75 shirts for it to be very profitable but if you get it in front of enough of the right people the money can easily stack up.

    As far as the shirt quality Amanda there are some complaints about the logos being put in the wrong places but that can be corrected with an email to customer support at no charge to you. The shirts them selves are like the shirts that you get from your local wal-mart store.

    I hope that helped with your question of the shirts quality.

    Your very welcome and thanks for reading,
    Jason

  25. Look like a legit way to make money, but it seems like you would need quite a few orders to make it worth it. I wonder what the shirt quality is like? I have been seeing their ads on tv. Thanks for the review.

  26. I’m glad that you found this review helpful and if you like to create new things than Booster is definitely a great opportunity for you to express yourself and turn it in to some extra money.

    I wish you the best and hope you find time to try it out,
    Jason

  27. Thanks for the wonderful comment and yes this is a great way to raise some money for whatever your reason may be. It has been working for me so far and I am sure you will have the same sort of success with it.

    Be sure to share it with your friends so they can also get in on this amazing opportunity for extra cash.

    Good luck to you,
    Jason

  28. Hey dude! Great review, you handled everything very well!:) Thank you for sharing this opportunity to each and every one of us, you deserve a cookie.
