Would you like to open a Web Store for your organization, but not sure how it works or how to begin?  It’s so much easier than you think!  With MySportsStore – Powered by Eastbay, we can have you up and running in as little as two weeks!

SportsSignup has teamed up with Eastbay (part of Foot Locker, Inc., the world’s largest athletic retailer) to open your own Web Store to sell “official” team gear, which can be combined with SportsSignup’s popular online sports registration software.  The primary difference between MySportsStore – Powered by Eastbay and traditional gear sales is that your organization will purchase pre-customized goods at wholesale prices, and be able to sell them online at prices determined by your organization. Better yet, all merchandise purchased online will be handled and shipped to your members by Eastbay – so there is no need to keep inventory in your garage. This convenient and automated service will save your organization time and provide a steady stream of fundraising revenue.

Ready to get started? The first step is easy – just login to your existing SportSignup account, navigating to the Manage MySportsStore section (on the left navigation menu) and click the “GET STARTED” button on the bottom of the page.  Don’t have a SportsSignup account? Click here to request a free Test Account now.

Once you have completed this step, an Eastbay Team Sales representative will be in contact to discuss your organization’s custom gear. Don’t have artwork or does your logo need a touchup? No problem…Free, professional design services are included – even if we have to design a logo from scratch! Note that the typical turn-around time from initial inquiry to a live web store is 3-4 weeks; this can be longer or shorter depending on speed of product selection and approval of final artwork, which is typically driven by your organization.
