The members of the fundraising group will spend 1-2 weeks collecting orders. Once they turn in all their orders, they have a fill date where individual members pick up the books needed to fill their orders. Your order should arrive shortly after the fill date. EZPay orders are not shipped from Attractions. If your book is overdue, please contact your seller first.
How will I know my group got credit?
How will I know my group got credit?If you provide your email address, we will send you an order confirmation by email, listing the group that receives credit. We can also send a confirmation email to the child, student, or group member who sold you the book, if you provide their email address. The fundraising chair will also be notified by email when your order finishes processing. (Note that if you check out without an EZPay code, there will be a delay in processing.) In addition, Attractions provides a continuously updated spread sheet to the fundraising chair, listing all the books purchased through EZPay. Finally, every account statement to your fundraising group will list your purchase as a credit.

Why can I only buy certain editions with EZPay?
Why can I only buy certain editions with EZPay?EZPay will allow you to choose only from editions the group has on hand. This makes sure you get your book in a timely manner, instead of waiting for an out of stock product. If you need a different edition but still want your group to get credit, you can order from Attractions regular order page, and Attractions will ship the book directly to you. Your group will get a partial credit from the sale, due to additional costs such as postage, packing, etc.
How will my order be delivered?
How will my order be delivered?Some groups will have books to give you immediately, so you may already have your book when you check out. But for most groups, your books will be delivered by the seller at a later date, or another member of the fundraising group will bring it to you.
How do I make sure our group got credit for an order?
How do I make sure our group got credit for an order?Attractions will try and send you a confirmation email with every order. Messages are sometimes marked as spam before they reach you, meaning they will not arrive or go into your spam folder. The best way to check is to login to the fundraising portal and click "View Online Sales." This will be a complete and organized list of all your EZPay credits.
Sometimes a supporter places an order without your EZPay code, and types in your group name instead. They may tell you they placed an order, but it does not yet appear in your online portal. Orders without an EZPay code take additional processing time, until the order can be matched up with your group by Attractions. This may take 1-3 business days.
If you still think an order is missing, please have the supporter forward you their confirmation email, or have the person's name, confirmation code, and approximate date of the order ready when calling Attractions.
