What's better than a discount? We can teach you how to receive a ton of FREE product and business supplies! This means that you don't ever have to personally purchase items for yourself unless you choose to host Fairs and Exposes. In that case, you'll want to have a lot of product on hand to sell. Most of the on hand products we have we've gotten for FREE. It's scentsational!
To keep your Down line you must sell $150 in retail sales, in one single month, in a 3 month period to remain an active consultant. This is very easy to do. If you just have one party every 3 months - sounds good right?
As a new Consultant you will earn 20% on your own sales. As you build your business you have the opportunity to make up to 39% of your own sales and leadership bonuses of up to 9% of the entire down line volume of the people you recruit and train to sell Scentsy products.
For In-Person sales: You collect the retail price (plus tax* and shipping** if applicable) from customers via cash, checks or credit card. For Online orders: Sales tax and payment are handled by Scentsy Corporate. Scentsy pays commissions and bonuses on the 10th of each month by loading a special pay card. Canadian consultants are paid via mailed check. Commissions are paid on the prior months sales and promotional rankings. (you must sell $500 in the previous month to qualify for the leadership bonus and earn overrides from your team).
* 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.
** Shipping is free on party orders of $150 or more unless the customer wants the order shipped directly to a specific address instead of to the consultant or hostess. Then there is a 10% shipping charge (20% to addresses in Hawaii or Alaska). All Canadian party orders that are over $200 qualify for 10% shipping. All other Canadian orders are charged a minimum of 20% shipping.
You can accept personal or business checks made payable to you, cash or credit cards (American Express, Visa, Discover, Master Card). Consultants do not pay credit card processing fees. Really, it's up to you and your preference. Just because you can accept checks, payable to you, doesn't mean that you have to accept that form of payment.
No! You only order the products when customers order from you. You can be very successful by just showing the products that come with your starter kit if you want. You'll also be able to earn Free and discounted products from party orders that you personally enter. Additionally, many consultants have never hosted parties and make thousands of dollars monthly from their Internet sales. This business is very flexible and cost effective.
Any event can become a party. Have a friend host a Home Party, Basket Party, Scent Event (catalog party with small scent samples your hostess can take to work, Bunko, Bowling, Family gatherings, etc.) and collect orders and re-orders. Fairs, Expos, School Holiday Stores, etc. Your Scentsy Handbook has complete information as does our Team Site. You may Not sell Scentsy products through retail establishments, Ebay or online auctions.
Absolutely! We'll personally train you. we'll make sure you're ready for your first party and answer any questions you have after that and we help you with organizing and placing your orders. We send our team monthly newsletter, have weekly training/information webinars, and all the person-to-person training you need. Scentsy also has corporate led trainings, meetings, conventions, etc.

Online sales and reorders are a big part of our business. You can subscribe to a Scentsy sponsored website so clients can order and reorder whenever it's convenient for them. Your website subscription is free for the first three months after you sign up and $10 a month after that. If you choose to create a website that is not sponsored by Scentsy, there are certain restrictions. See the Policy and Procedures manual for complete information.

Wait a minute, how can you be the best sponsor for me if I'm in Canada and you're in Colorado? How does that work?
Well, I currently have consultants all across the US and working to expand into different countries. Because I work my business full time I am available to answer questions either online or over the phone, sometimes even better, than a local sponsor who works their business part or even full-time can do. PLEASE, feel free to call me and ask questions to see what you think. Interview us!
No, The great part about this business is you can sign up to sell any one of the brands, and later if you feel like expanding your business you can sign up to sell the other ones later on. Scentsy Family is just giving you another opportunity to grow and expand your business in different ways. Find what you are comfortable with and make a decision based on that. If you feel like selling Scentsy Fragrance to start and later move to sell Grace Adele too, this is perfectly okay!
Yes! You have the potential to hit shooting star for each brand that sign up for. Shooting start is obtaining $500 or more in PRV with in the first 15 days.
