I am signing my first recruit and she wants to do it in a hurry. We just closed her show this evening, when can she sign up? She will be doing it via the internet, but I wasn't sure if it had to be received by home office (like what we see on our shipment status page) before she could sign.
Thanks,
Leslie

Once her show has been processed, the kit credit should be available to use. Once the show shows up with the show amount on your Individual Performance Tracker, then it means it's been processed. Although I have noticed that if a show is put on hold and the amount shown is zero, sometimes the show is processed before the update the IPT. After the first full day, you could call the HO and see if it's ready to use.:D congrats!!!

I've found that it takes about 48 to 72 hours after PC receives the show.

I'm with your recruite! I want to get this party started! But alas, it does take a little time. I used my host credits toward my kit, therefore, my recruiter had to wait until my show was being shipped before we could do my consultant agreement. The PC elves are a lot faster these day's though as my show was actually shipped the day after my show closed! :eek:

I did my agreement on Friday and my kit came in on Monday. I did my debit app on Friday and still don't have a number so I haven't been able to set up Pampered Partner yet. I'll check back today on that.

I've been frustrated with the hurry up and wait but I've been so excited too. Tell your recruite to breath. It won't be long. And congratulations on your first!:)

The kit credit shows up as soon as the show clears which is usually in 24-48 hours (longer sometimes over the weekend). When you see the show on the individual tracker you can pretty much be assured it is ready (that's usually before it ships)! I had a show close on Friday and her credit was there on Saturday afternoon.

For those of you that want to get started immediately: As soon as you have your consultant number go to Consultant's Corner and apply for your debit card and direct deposit. You can not submit via Pampered Partner without the debit card.

You can do a show as soon as you sign the agreement - even before the kit arrives if your recruiter or director can give you the paperwork and you have the products. You can do a catalog show immediately too. Just start collecting orders and bookings from your friends, family & co-workers. As soon as your debit card is ready (it takes about a week) and you have the Pampered Partner disk you can submit!

I applied for my debit card as soon as I got my consultant number. I was getting worried because it hadn't been processed yet....then I read the confirmation letter saying it would be 5 busniness days after I had applied before I would get my number. Monday will be day number 5 so I'm still waiting. :(

That does not mean you can't

start doing shows. You just need it once you submit your first order. Not when you take your first order! So if you wanted to do an impromtue show this weekend, GO FOR IT!
Get all your other personal info into PP then when you get the card, just update it to show your debit number.

My first recruit was told my HO (2 weeks ago) that she could use a regular credit card number to submit her first 6 shows. Well, when it came time to submit her first show, she needed her debit card number. She had to wait an additional week to FINALLY get her debit card number. Her poor host had to wait that long so my advice is to do that right away!!!:)

some advice...

If you ever have a recruit that has a show ready to go but doesn't have a consultant number just put the show in pampered partner and print the show order form and send a check to HO. I just did this today with my new recruit who just signed up for a debit card a couple days ago but had a show ready to go.
