I’m so pleased you are thinking about joining Stampin’ Up! and my team. Below you will find answers to some of the questions I get asked about joining. But, if there is anything I haven’t covered, do please contact me if you have further questions.
Who can join? Anyone, as long as you are over 18 years of age, and live in the UK, France, Germany, The Netherlands or Austria.
How much does it cost? *£99 (129 €) and you can simply choose any current catalogue products to the value of £130 (175€). You also receive a business supplies kit which includes catalogues, order forms and everything needed to get your business started. The starter kit is shipped directly to your home for FREE within approx 3-4 working days of signing up.
Do I have to demonstrate? We would love you to but you don’t have to. If you can reach the manageable quarterly minimums with your own purchases you can simply join and benefit from the discounts and deals. There is no pressure from me as your ‘upline’ or from Stampin’ Up! but if you change your mind and want to start a class or two or sell to friends or customers you can. You are in charge and you set your own targets and goals. It is so easy to share what you are passionate about and Stampin’ Up! offers some great incentives to get you sharing and earning so there is lots of scope to earn, promote and be rewarded simply by sharing what you love and the fantastic products.
What is the quarterly minimum? The quarterly minimum sales target is £275 (300 CSV). Whenever sales are mentioned in the Compensation Plan, they won’t be shown in local currency. In order to make our compensation plan applicable to all markets, regardless of currency, we use a common measurement, commissionable sales volume or CSV.
Your first quarterly minimum needs to be reached at the end of a full quarter and if you join part way through a quarter you will be given until the end of the next quarter to reach your minimum. Quarters are as follows Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sept, Oct-Dec. If you cannot achieve a quarterly minimum, Stampin’ Up! will give you an extra month to meet your targets. If you can’t then you revert back to being one of my customers and no longer receive the discount. You have zero, zilch, nada, obligation to place any further orders once you have your starter kit. You keep your kit, there is no sending anything back, it is yours to keep should you not continue to be active.
What discounts do I get? On all orders placed you receive 20% discount off the net product total (the total after VAT is taken off) or 21% discount off if you are in the Netherlands. You can earn more commission the more sales you make in a month and any extra commission payments are calculated at the end of the month and paid direct in the bank account of your choice mid-way through the following month. You also get the chance to pre-order products a month earlier than the general release as well as very generous offers and discounts including hostess benefits on all eligible orders.
When you sign up as a demo, you receive the title of Bronze. As you build your business, you can advance to subsequent titles and if/when you reach the next title of Bronze Elite you will receive 25% discount on your future orders/sales.
What training/support will I receive? I have several years of experience and knowledge and can help you as little or as much as you need. There is also lots of info shared on the demonstrator website. We have a dedicated demo support helpline who are amazing. If you are on Facebook you can be added to my dedicated team page – whether you are buying for yourself or want to spread your wings and sell to others.
Do I have to hold stocks of product? No. You will only order items when you or a customer places an order and pays you in advance. So you won’t need to keep stock of products.
Should I choose a local demo as my upline? You need to make the right choice for you as once you sign up you are unable to change your team leader without resigning and rejoining 3 months later. Everyone is different and I would encourage you to do your research, don’t just look on-line pick up the phone and talk to the demo direct. Your team leader does not necessarily need to be local to you and you need to consider what it is that is most important to you and make your decision based on that. Some questions you may wish to consider are –
- Is your potential demonstrator team leader knowledgable, friendly and helpful?
- Is your potential demonstrator team leader available to support you?
- Do you want business support or help to get your business off the ground?
- Do you want to be left alone?
- Do you want to be part of a community/team?
One of the best things about Stampin’ Up! are the people. You can choose to be part of the team/community or you can choose not to be, no pressure but you are free to choose.
