ORDER MERCH TO DISPLAY AT YOUR GIGS
Why should I do this?
Having display items really helps to drive sales on Hawkr. Fans can still pick up and try merch on, see various designs in real life and then just order using the Hawkr app. Why spend all your time loading boxes of merch in and out when you can spend that time creating an amazing display in the venue!
You may want to order display merch to check your designs and take photos of them to promote on socials channels or use for competitions and give-aways. Why not give some to band members or crew, another good way to show-off your designs? Gone are the days of not being able to wear your own band’s merch!
Here’s the good part! Merch ordered through your 'DISPLAY MERCH STAND' comes at a discounted rate. We only charge you for the cost price of the item, plus a handling and shipping fee.
Note on delivery times: Display merch delivery times can vary depending on how much and what is ordered. Typical Display merch delivery times are 5 to 7 working days, please allow sufficient time ahead of your show or tour.

OVERVIEW OF HOW TO ORDER YOUR OWN MERCH
Every artist has a 'DISPLAY MERCH STAND' which they can use to buy display merch. This stand is only viewable by you, the artist account owner.
This 'DISPLAY MERCH STAND' is viewable from the Hawkr Fan app, which you can download from app stores, when you register a fan account on the app using the same email address you registered your Artist Profile with.
In this 'DISPLAY MERCH STAND', all your live merch designs are available for you to buy at a discounted rate.
You can select the 'DISPLAY MERCH STAND' and then shop on the app choosing what items and sizes you want. Check out in the exact same way a fan would, by selecting a delivery address and payment option.
The price you pay is not the retail price you choose for fans, but a discounted rate automatically set by Hawkr.
