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 of 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
The shipping charge for all After Deadline Orders is $4.99
When schools have All Orders Ship to Home enabled, the shipping for all After Deadline Orders will default to the student's home. None of the books will ship to the school.
When schools have all orders shipped in bulk to the school, the shipping for all After Deadline Orders will default to the school.
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.
*** Important! If you do not want any After Deadline Orders shipped to the school, you can turn it off. This means that all After Deadline Orders will be shipped to students' homes. Caution! Turning this off will likely result in after deadline books delivered to the students' homes before the books in the bulk shipment are handed out at the school.
Go to Edit Yearbook and Settings to turn off Ship All Book Purchases After Deadline to School. (The button will be orange when it is turned off.)
You will see this message. If, after reading it, you want to turn off After Deadline Orders shipped to the school, select OK.
If After Deadline Orders are being 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!
