Pampered Chef: Do I have to submit by tonight?

  1. Hi all!

    I'm brand new and closing my first shows tonight. I had a home show last weekend, two catalog shows that closed this week, and my own open house a few weeks ago, but was waiting for outside order checks to arrive.

    So, I've been submiting shows today.

    When I submitted my show, a guests cc number had not been stored, so it did not allow me to submit. I called that guest (thank goodness it is one of my best friends) and asked for her cc # again. She was an outside order from over 2000 miles away.

    Do I have to submit my show tonight to be paid the commision for it in August? How does this work? Can I submit tomorrow, and still get paid the following week?

    To be paid Aug. 8th you have to have the show turned in by mid-night tonight. If you turn it in after that, it will go on the mid-month payment Aug. 24th.

    Also, if you haven't already turned in 2 shows this month, you need 2 turned in by midnight to get the free apron.

    Can someone clarify for me- what's the difference between submitting tonigh (last day of the month for next pay cycle) as you guys said- and what was in the last Newswire?

    Does that apply to orders that had a problem- like a Declined Credit Card or something on hold?

    Just curious- I am not clear on what that means.

  7. I hope my friend can make it home to where her cc is before then! She has about half an hour!

    Nothing like down to the wire!
  8. ooooh! good question Bobbi!

    Thanks everyone for all of your help. I really appreciate this.

    I think it refers to shows that you submit, but have holds on them for various reasons---declined cards and so on. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    So just to clarify, show sales count for the month they're SUBMITTED, not the month they're held (if you don't close til the next month). So a July show submitted by midnight (central time) on July 31 will count towards your July sales total while a July show submitted between Aug. 1-15 will be added to your Aug. sales total (I'm saying the 15 because that's the latest you can submit a July show and still have the July host and guest specials be valid). If you submit a show on the 1-15 of the month you'll get paid comission on it on the 22nd, if you submit a show on the 15-30/31 of the month you'll get paid on the 10th of the next month. They adjust that second paycheck to reflect your commission level based on your total month sales.

    If you submit a show by the deadline on July 31 but there's a problem with the show (declined credit card or whatever), you have til Aug. 4 to resolve the problem for the show to still count for July sales and to be included in your 10th of the month commission. If you don't resolve it in time, it goes towards Aug. show sales and won't be included in your 10th of the month commission

  11. so, if I submit a show on the 15th of the month, does it go on the 22nd pay? or the 10th pay of the following month?
  12. Thank you for clarifying this, Elise! Very much appreciated!

    just pay close attention when there are sales promotions for consultants going on, though. They usually require that your sales are HELD AND SUBMITTED during a specific month.

    ...did you make it in time????
    Aug 1, 2009
  15. nope.

    friend didn't make it home in time.

    I'm going to bed. I've fallen asleep 3 times in the past half hour waiting.

    Guess I'll just have a bigger mid month check, right?

    Trial and error! ;) No major biggie. Hakuna Matata!

    Commissionable sales submitted the 1st through midnight central time on the 15th are paid on the 22nd. Commissionable sales submitted the 16th through midnight central time on the last day of the month are paid on the 8th of the following month, with adjustments if an additional level of sales commission is reached. (If you're receiving a paper check, you don't get the mid-month pay on the 22nd.)

    For most promotions, shows must be held and submitted during a particular month. Read the fine print on all promotions carefully.

    When is says you have until the 4th to resolve shows, it's referring to shows that have been submitted but need to be resolved, i.e. a credit card has been declined. Otherwise, the commission for that show will be paid on the next pay date, and the show will not count toward that promotion.
