Pampered Chef: Bookings Can't close show - NEED ADVICE!!!

    Hi! I held a show for the mother of my daughter's friend on Sept 24, since then I can't seem to get her final outside orders and her wish list products to close this show. She told me she would have everything for me last night at the girl's cheerleading practice and - guess what - she didn't come!! I've tried calling her and I told her I could even stop by her house to get the money, but she hasn't called me back. The show is at $200 and claims she has at least $100 more in outside orders, but I am beyond frustrated!

    If anyone has any advice on how I can get her to close this show - I am at a loss.

    First of all if she has an answering machine I would leave a message letting her know that her friends and family will be expecting theire products soon and could she call you with the rest of her orders or to meet you. I would also let her know that if she hasnt contacted you by a certain time on a certain date that you will have to close the show without the outside orders and pick out her free products for her. She would hate for that to happen and should call you back then. I know it is very frustrating waiting on someone to give you those last minute orders, especially whey you are relying on the money and would hate to have unhappy customers who arent getting their order. Good Luck and let us know what happened.

    Well, we can't say for sure. But I am 99% positive that PC gives you a grace period of about 4-5 days to get your deposits made. My shows usually never take less than 2 weeks to withdraw from my account. But, you know how it goes, when you are planning on that they go and get on the ball with taking out the money. If it were me I would definetely do it. I think you are safe.

    My director said they won't during the weekend, or even (usually) the next day or two. She has been transmitting and then depositing the checks within 24-48 hours for 6 years without a problem.

    Good luck!

    They have taken from me on a weekend just recently...it was on the 8th or something I think. But, it does take time before they take it out...usually they don't take it out until after te host has recieved their products...at least that is what has happened with me so far.

    :confused: I'm not sure why they would have withdrawn the money on a weekend because in Recipe for Success, it says they transfer funds out of your account FOUR BUSINESS DAYS after your order is received by the HO. My experience has been that it's usually later than the 4 business days. Plus, banks don't do any actual transactions on a weekend. They make take deposits, but they don't post to your account until the next business day.

    It shows online a withdrawl date of 10/8/2005. It doesn't bother me b/c there is always extra money in there and it does take forever to take it out so its no biggie to me.

    You can also tell her in message that you need to close her show wothin 30 days. You can't Legally "hold on" to peoples money for that long its fraud.

    That should get her to close the show and finish out her orders. :D

    Leesa, I had a host that would not return my calls to close her show last year. My director finally told me to leave her a message that if I didn't hear from her by such and such date, that I would close her show and she would lose her host benefits. In this case, I'm sure she didn't even have any more orders to turn in, she just wouldn't talk to me to close the show. I gave her plenty of warning and she never called me, so I went ahead and submitted the show without her. I took the host benefits (points at that time) and to this day have never heard from her. Good luck!
