Pampered Chef: Sales Coupon Insentive

  1. I am booking my October shows and I made up a flyer and want to offer a 15% discount coupon, how would I go about doing that, how would I take the 15% off? Any ideas for creating the coupon? Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated! :) PS This is my first flyer offering this type of incentive! :)

    To redeem the discount you would go into the payment screen for each order and put the discount under consultant gift. Then it will give you the total due. Personally I think 15% is a little high, since you might only be making 20% and have to pay taxes on that. I will sometimes offer 10%, but I usually do it to past hostesses or prefered customers only.

    I am offering a discount in October too. Here's what I am doing:

    Guests in attendance who spend $25 will be able to purchase an item on page 25 for 25% off. My commission is rarely below that so I am just giving up the commission on that one item. What it does for me is give me more sales (I hope) and trip points (I am SOOO close to that cruise). Someone who might only purchase $20 may very well add $5 to get the discount and then they're buying a stone too. (Page 25 is the classic stones which is perfect because I'm doing it becasue of the 25th Anniversary of the first kitchen show being in October - hence $25 - page 25 - 25% off :cool: )

    I'll let you know how it works...

    In November and December I am offering "price of the day". If they book a show by the 15th of the month they can buy any stone for the $$ equivalent of the date (Dec. 3 - $3...).

    Beth I have a quick question. How do you give someone a discount in PP if they are charging it to a credit card? With cash orders I have always just entered it as usual and then paid for the difference. I am sure there is a way and that if anyone knows you do. Such a wealth of information!!!! :D

    Thanks :eek:

    I enter my extra discount as a "Consultant Gift" BEFORE I charge their card.

    We can write off any discount we give (e.g. the consultant gift) as a business expense, can't we?

    Yes we can. If fact when you print out the expense report from PP at the end of the year "Consultant Gifts" is included in the list of expenses.
