How do I take advantage of the free shipping?To take advantage of the free shipping, you would need to place the order through the "Pampered Partner" website and then choose the "Non commission order" option. This will allow you to bypass the commission fees that are normally associated with personal orders made through the website. Additionally, if you are a US consultant, you will be granted a 20% discount on all non-commission orders placed through the website.
I'm assuming you mean as a personal order? It's non-commissionable sales, so you'd choose "Non commission order" from the top tool bar. Enter the applicable taxes and just start entering the order. For US consultants you get 20% off as a consultant, or 22% off if you've reached $15,000 in sales. Not bad!!
If you are giving those products as presents why don't you put together a catalog show in your name and buy them under the recipient's name? That way they can have their receipt for the guarantee (if you want them to have it. ) and you get sales credit for it.
If you do the math it costs you no more than if you use your discount.
Say your discount is 20% (new consultant with less than $15000 in career sales).
a.) You buy a Professional pan for Aunt Mary with your 20% discount. Cost = $80 + shipping and tax. Commission = $0 Trip sales points and lifetime total sales earned = 0
b.) You buy the same pan for Mary on a show or even an individual order. Cost = $100 + shipping and tax. But it's really $80 or less: Commission = 20% if your total sales for the month are under $750 (more if they're over that) and you get the sales credit toward the $15000 lifetime (2% raise) and toward trip points.
If I buy something for myself I do use the discount but I never bought gifts on my discount as a consultant. It was always to my advantage to buy it at full price in their name. (as a director, my discount is 30% so I have to do the math again...)
