Q. How much does it cost to get started? A. In the United States, it is $99 plus tax & shipping to order your Starter Kit. In Canada, it’s $119.
Q. What does the Starter Kit include? A. Everything you need to get started as a consultant and have your first party or event! The contents will vary, but the picture to the right shows you some of what your current Starter Kit includes: consultant tote, party testers, warmer, Scentsy bars, kids product, clean product, laundry product, room spray, car bar, forms, catalogs and more!
Q. Is there training available? A. Absolutely. I’ll train you personally. I’ll make sure you’re ready for your first party & answer any questions you have after that. Scentsy also provides weekly training calls, a full training center & they sponsor annual regional meetings & an annual convention (at the end of July).
Q. Great! How do I sign up to be a consultant? A. You sign up through my Scentsy website . Once you’ve agreed to the terms & conditions & paid for your starter kit, a consultant number will be assigned to you. Scentsy will then contact you through email to give you a URL for your personal Scentsy website where customers can begin ordering. I will also send you a welcome letter detailing more information.
Q. Why join your team? A. This is so much more than a business to me, and you are more than a consultant! When someone joins my team, it means something to me. I take it as a serious responsibility and genuinely want to help you succeed. I will work with you to help you achieve YOUR goals, whether that be to simply get a discount on Scentsy products for your home and family or turn this into a full-time business. I aim to coach and help you in a way that works with your personality and preferences. As such, I can help you via phone, text, email, face-to-face meetings.....or I can leave you alone. It all comes down to what you want and need. You can read more about me and my Scentsy story here. Q. How much do I have to sell to stay a consultant? A. All you need is 200 in PRV (Personal Retail Volume) in a single month in any rolling 3 month period in order to stay active. For example, if you sell 200 PRV in May, you will remain active in June, July and August.
Q. How much money can I make? A. You can earn 20-39% on your own sales & leadership bonuses of up to 9% if you choose to recruit & train others to sell Scentsy products.
Q. How long has Scentsy been around? What is the growth potential? A. Scentsy started in 2004. Though we began with wax and warmers, Scentsy has expanded into a full fragrance company with many different product lines! We reach a huge customer base as we cater to men, women and children. In addition, our products are consumable, therefore reorders occur regularly. The company has experienced incredible growth. We are still a very young company and as we open in each country, there is a ground floor opportunity for you to recruit there as well as expand in your country. Scentsy is adding new lines all the time and with our re-branding in 2016, we are poised to grow exponentially over the coming years. Signing up today is advantageous for you because the company is still new & growing rapidly.
Q. Do I have to buy a lot of inventory & keep it stocked to do parties? A. No! You have everything you need in your Starter Kit and Scentsy never requires you to make any purchases. You simply order the products on your consultant workstation when customers order from you.
Q. How can I sell Scentsy? A. Home parties, basket parties (these are catalog parties with small scent samples your hosts can take around to their coworkers and friends to show & collect orders), website orders & re-orders, fairs/expos, fundraisers, etc. The options are almost limitless, allowing you to choose the avenue that best fits your personality and community. Check out my host page for more details.
Q. How do I get paid commission & bonuses? A. You collect the retail price (plus tax* & shipping** if applicable) from customers & pay the retail price when you enter the order. Scentsy deposits your commission on the 10th of each month to your pay portal. This account & a pay card will be provided by Scentsy when you join. You will receive your commission & bonus for the total sales you & your team (if applicable) made during the previous month. * The tax rate is based on the zip code where the order will be shipped. Most orders will be shipped to you so check with your local state or county government to find out what your tax rate is (sometimes there is more than one tax rate for an area so check which one is for non-food items). If an order will be shipped to someone’s home directly, charge the tax rate for that destination. Tax is automatically calculated when you enter the order. ** In the U.S. shipping is free on party orders of $200 or more unless the customer wants the order shipped directly to a specific address instead of to the consultant or hostess.
Q. What payment types can I accept from customers? Are there credit card processing fees? A. In the U.S. you can accept personal or business checks made payable to you, cash or credit/debit cards (American Express, Visa, Discover, Master Card). Consultants do not pay credit card processing fees.
Q. Do I have to pay for all of the rewards a host gets for having a party? A. No, Scentsy covers it all. If you don’t use all the host rewards there is a $5 host fee charged to help cover shipping expenses. So, the solution is to take all of the half off and product credit that is earned, and the $5 fee will not be charged.
Q. How often are the products & catalogs updated? A. Scentsy Fragrance catalogs are released twice a year in March & September. Consultants can purchase the new catalogs & scent samples in February & August when the new & discontinued products are announced.
Q. Can I have my own Scentsy web site? A. Yes. Online sales & reorders are a big part of our business. You can subscribe to a Scentsy sponsored website so customers can order & reorder whenever it’s convenient for them. Your website subscription is free for the first three months after you sign up ($10 per month after that if you wish to keep it*). If you choose to create a website that is not sponsored by Scentsy, there are certain restrictions. See the handbook for complete information. *The $10 monthly web site fee also includes a newsletter for customers (Making Perfect Scents) that Scentsy creates & sends to your list of clients through email. You just set up the email list in the Contacts section of your consultant workstation.
Q. How do I get marketing materials & business supplies? A. Business supplies (catalogs, order forms, scent samples, generic business cards & invitations) & marketing materials (custom business cards, invitations, banners, clothing, pens, buttons, yard signs, etc.) are available through the Scentsy Family Store in your workstation, once you become a consultant. You may also create your own if you would like.
Q. What do I do if I still have more questions? A. Contact me and I will be happy to answer any remaining questions you might have.
