Top Tips for Collecting Money for Hen Party and Stag Do T Shirts Ideas

If you’ve ever arranged a hen party or stag do before, you’ll know that collecting money from everyone is the hardest part of the whole process.

If you’ve not done this before then – spoiler alert – this is where you’ll potentially hit a wall. In fact, difficulties collecting money is why many orders placed with us are last minute.

However, collecting money for stag do and hen party t shirts doesn’t have to be a slog. We’ve pooled together our experience gathered from countless hen and stag dos and have put together our top tips for money collections.

HOW TO SET A BUDGET

It’s vital to set a clear budget when you begin planning your stag or hen party and get everyone to agree to it.

It’s no good agreeing a cheap night out and then adding on extra after extra that means people have to drop out along the way as this can cause tension. Instead, cost every aspect early – including things like personalised stag do and hen party t shirts – and give everyone the chance to agree it.

At Mr Porkys, we help you do this by being clear on pricing.

We have no hidden costs and we have ranges of tees to suit all budgets, including our essential hen and essential stag ranges which start from £10. Don’t forget to add in delivery charges if applicable. Ours our £5.50, or free for orders over £95.

COMMUNICATING WITH YOUR HEN PARTY OR STAG DO

As with most things, communication is key. Create a WhatsApp group or Facebook Messenger chat early on so that everyone is kept in the loop at all times.

If any costs change, let people know straight away so you can adjust plans accordingly.

We know how important communication is at Mr Porkys. We have a 100% response rate on Facebook Messenger and we’re always ready to offer help and advice.

We aim to answer emails within 24 hours, seven days a week too so if anyone in your group has any queries at all, we can help.

SET A DEADLINE FOR COLLECTING MONEY

Setting a deadline for money to be transferred is the best way to ensure money is collected.

This may be one deadline for everything, or several deadlines throughout the planning period to pay for different aspects. Setting them around when the majority of people get paid is best, and send reminders to your chat group when a deadline is due.

At Mr Porkys, we can fit in with your schedule by allowing you to choose your delivery date. And if some of your group have left it late, you can always take advantage of our express service.

HOW TO COLLECT MONEY FOR YOUR HEN PARTY OR STAG DO

Old school bank transfers are the most obvious way of collecting the money for the hen party or stag to.

However, it can be a bit cumbersome. You’ll need to make sure everyone has your bank account number and sort code and you’ll have to ask everyone to include their name as a reference. You’ll also need to keep a checklist of who’s paid which can become unwieldy if you’re dealing with lots of payments as you plan.

FACEBOOK MESSENGER

If you’re using Facebook Messenger to communicate, then you can also use it to collect money.

Simply add your debit card details and ask everyone to pay you by clicking on the dollar sign. Money will become available within three days.

PAYPAL or LEETCHI

You could also create a money pot on PayPal or Leetchi – particularly useful if you want all of your budget in one easy-to-access kitty.

With Leetchi, people can contribute to the pot by making a card payment and with PayPal they only need your email address or mobile number to pay, making everything very straightforward.
