Pampered Chef: A little worried...

    I just had a host that put most of her guests' orders on her own credit card, and is waiting for their checks to come to her. I think I may have heard in the past that this is not acceptable.... I just submitted the order, and it seemed to go through fine. Is there a rule I'm not aware of?

    That is totally the hosts choice. I often have my host collect checks so that I do not run the risk of a bounced check coming to me.

    I actually do that with all the after show outside orders. There is not a problem as long as PC gets paid! I had a host once who had all outside orders made out to him so that he could put almost the whole show on his credit card to get the points. What ever floats his boat.

    I just had two catalogs shows that the hosts put the entire order on her credit card. They have already shipped so no problem

    OK, phew! That's a relief! Sometimes I feel like I might be looking for ways to stress! LOL Thanks for the reassurance!

    Nope - at least last year, it still wasn't allowed. I had a Catalog Show that was put on hold because the whole show was on one card.

    I questioned it, and was told that it isn't always caught - but when it is, the show is held. So, it's a roulette if it gets approved or not.

    If you enter the same CC# on a couple of the orders, and then the rest on the hosts order, it's less likely to be questioned, from what I was told.

    I can understand, but at the same point, does that mean we aren't allowed to turn an order into a "show" if the person is ordering more than $150 in products? I've had a few folks do that- they were ordering more than $150 in product alone themselves as an individual, so we turned it into a show. Would that technically not be allowed then?

    Technically - that would not be allowed.

    I had someone who was using $$ given as Wedding gifts to order a bunch of items for her kitchen. I had her divide up the product, and we put it in as orders under the names of the people who gave the money. That way, she can write thank you notes, and instead of saying "thank you for the money" she can be more specific with her thank you's. (Thank you for the gift - I used it to purchase a DCB from TPC, and I'll think of you when I'm making dinner!)

    That way, she as able to assign the money to specific orders, and get a little extra too. :)
