    No, no commission on the Host Special, or the 50% off items and no commission on any Host Item that the Past Host buys, either!
    You do get commission on anything above and beyond, though -- even though the host gets the extra % off!

    Nope. I wish we at least did on half price items - especially when we sale the cookware!

    But we gots lots of other benefits, so, I am not complaining!

    Doesn't the past host special count towards guest sales, though?

    That's why there's a difference between the "Guest Sales" total and the "Commissionable Sales" total.

    Kat B and chefjeanine like this.
  7. So to clarify since this is new to me. If I am trying to reach my $1250 in my first 30 days, anything that the host buys or the past host buys, will or will not count toward that.

    To reach your $1250 don't count the past host special (the one item they get at half price), but you can count anything else the past host buys.

    From the host's order only count the amount after the discount--not the half-price nor the Host Special.

    The easiest thing to do is look at each show and add up the commissionable sales. You can also go to Consultant Connection on Consultants Corner and see where you are there. Just be aware that it usually takes 24 hours for any new purchases to show up there.
