    My last show is not at 150. The host is sick and doesn't want to mess with any more orders right now. How do I go about transmitting this order??
    It won't let me cause it's not 150. She is also ordering the host special, so how can I do this?? Thanks for any help

    Well, it has to reach 150 to qualify as a show and for her to qualify for the host benefits. Can you make some calls and add some orders. Maybe make some calls and tell about the items that are being discontinued. How far are you away from 150?

    One more thing. You can't turn this show in under 150 or all the guests will be charged extra shipping.

    Even though she's sick, she needs to know that it won't count as a show unless it's over $150. That means that all orders have to be transmitted as individual orders, meaning they all have to pay the direct shipping cost. :( That also means she gets no host benefits, including the host special. I'm not sure how sick she is and if she just REALLY doesn't want to deal with it. If she REALLY wants that special, maybe it'll give her a little motivation to get a few more orders. Depending on how you feel, if you have any straggling orders from individuals, you could add those to your show if you have them. Sometimes I know I'll do this for hosts who really seem to have given it their best shot. Maybe she has a friend or a husband who's willing to pass the catalog around too. If she's not too far off, this is what I'd encourage her to do. Then maybe she could share part of her host benefit with that person. Technically she can't co-host a catalog show, but if someone helps her out, she can buy something for them at the discount she earns. Or you could reward that person with a little something. Order on the hosts order to get the discount.

    Any other suggestions?? Those were my only thoughts so far. Good luck!
