 PRICE DROP FEATURE
The more people buy

Customized uniforms,
easy logistics

UW Medicine wanted to outfit their staff with fresh merch, but without the hassles of inventory or a swag closet. They also wanted a way to have individual names and credentials embroidered on the apparel. Enter the iBuy platform and our in-house print shop. We now do quarterly iBuys to get the team geared up. The apparel can be worn with the scrubs… now that’s a nice upgrade.

Bag & Tag
UW also needed an easy way to hand out the swag. Each item was bagged with the individual’s name and size. Just trying to make your work life a little easier.



Virtual event, real shirts

Heartland Alliance held their first ever virtual town hall this year. Staff and volunteers all over the Chicago area attended the virtual meeting while wearing their appreciation shirts.

Before the event the iBuy was used to collect sizes. Our in-house shop then printed and sent out individually packed shirts for easy distribution. It let the event team focus on throwing an incredible virtual event without getting bogged down in the details.

FAQ’s

First, tell your account manager you’d like to use iBuy. Then work with us to finalize the art and which items you want to offer. Your iBuy can then be activated and sent out to your people.

Your account manager will activate your iBuy, and you’ll get an email with a link to the signup page. Forward this email to anyone you want to be able to sign up so that they can see the items.

Your account manager will assign a link that relates to your order, which will be on our site: www.kotisibuy.com/your-text-here. As for how long people have to sign up, this is up to you. Usually we give people 3-7 days, but can change this to more or less depending on your schedule. Keep in mind that the longer the signups are open, the later the delivery will be.

On the previous page, you’ll find all the information relevant to your iBuy: the address to purchase the items, the signup deadline, and a link to view who’s signed up for items.

If it’s a regular iBuy with each person using their own credit card, then it’s charged upon check out. If it’s a Price Drop iBuy, credit cards are not processed until the iBuy has closed.

How the items are delivered is up to you. We can ship you a box with all the items in it, or we can do the fulfillment for you. Make sure to tell us before the iBuy opens if you want us to do the fulfillment, so we can collect shipping addresses.
