    I'm a new consultant and I'm told that you get a free trial website (90 days or something like that). Anyways, I can't figure out how to do it!! When I go on the Consultant Corner it only shows me what I have to do in order to pay for one.... HELP!

    You have to qualify within your 90-days to get it. (4 shows or $1250 in sales).

    You can get a website now- but you have to pay for it (with a Pampered Chef Debit or Credit card only- which you'll need one to do your orders anyway.). After you qualify w/in your 90-days, then they'll add the extra 3-months to your paid subscription. Otherwise, qualify first and then you can activate your free-90 days website.

    Hope that helps.

    You can buy it now and they will extend if for the FREE period on the end. This is what I did and don't regret it!!

    Yes. You can definitely get it now- comes out to about $9 a month when you look at it that way. You can set up your shows online for hosts/guests to be able to use and order from ....you just won't be able to have Individual Orders (including the Outlet) until you've qualified.

    Plus- you'll be able to print your website info on all your contact info (business cards, labels, etc). So as you are getting your name out there, it will have your PWS info too.

    I'm a new consultant and just started my PWS. How do I add the outlet and registry? I qualified with the $1250 but have only done 3 shows. Do they automatically add it? I have enjoyed reading everyone's posts and learning from everyone's wisdom. Thank you.

    It may take a day or two after you submit the sales that bring you to $1250 career sales for it to activate, especially if you submit them on a weekend. But if you don't see the outlet on your PWS after 3 days, call HO.

    If you don't activate your free trial in 30 days or so, do you loose it? I have a new consultant who waited to get hers until after 60 days after she qualified. She said it only allowed her to activate by paying the 59 charge for 6 months. Is this accurate or does she now have nine months?

    I'm not sure. There might be a deadline on activating it. If there is, it should be in a communication from HO about the free period (I think consultants who qualify for it get a note). If you can't find it there, a call to HO might be in order.

    They only have 30 days to activate it before they lose it. I just qualified last month, and in my congratulatory email that PC sends, it says:

    I guess it pays to read the fine print. I didn't realize it expired. I spoke to her about it, but she wasn't sure she wanted to make the leap to PWS, glad she did, even though it was two weeks late... Is kinda frustrating though. She qualified on May 5th and started the website on June 12th... I'll very with her the date her letter said and make sure to NOT make this mistake in the future.
     
  15. I'm also new---so after you qualify (4 shows or 1250 in sales) then people can do the individual orders?

    Its after you reach $1250 in sales. Then you can do individual ordering through your website (if you have one) and wedding registries.
