Your league can use the Online Store feature to offer merchandise to any member of a SwimTopia team in your league. This is a popular feature for selling league-wide gear and items, including examples such as:
- League-branded merchandise, like a league t-shirt or sweatshirt
- Championship meet t-shirts
- Heat sheets for a championship meet or all-start meet
- Personalized ads in a league-wide meet program
Detailed order reports allow you to track orders by team, allowing you to batch the orders for easier distribution of merchandise to each team.
Setting up your League Online Store
We offer a series of Help Center articles geared towards getting your Online Store set up. Here are the steps you'll follow:
1. Set up your merchandise products
