Pampered Chef: Ok, I know that I read somewhere that PC has a layaway and how it

    Ok, I know that I read somewhere that PC has a layaway and how it works, but I can't remember where I saw it. I have re read my manual that came in my SS Kit, but I can't find it in there. Am I crazy, or does anyone know what I am talking about?

    The layaway plan would be something that you do yourself. There is no set layaway plan for PC. Consultants just make their own up. From what I have read here, you were place the order for the item and pay part the customers money, part yours. You hold the item till they pay in full. I don't think it is anything I would make a habit of. Sounds scarey to me.

    It's not a company program...

    but something that some consultants choose to offer. I've attached some flyers I've collected from this site. Basically, the concept is: If a customer wants a large amount of product, they pay you over time (you decide the terms). When the final payment is made, THEN the show order is turned in as a show, with the customer as the only guest and the host. Or the customer can collect outside orders also. The customer gets the host special for the month the order is actually turned in.

    The down side to this is that we are actually not supposed to turn in a customer's individual order as a show. So, the best thing would be for the customer to at least collect 1 or two orders in addition to their own, or if you have some straggler orders, attach those. TPC really doesn't check this, but it's just something to be aware of.

    I know some people are especially utilizing this method for "cookware lay-aways" for the Pan-O-Rama promotion.

    Hope this information helps!

    Thanks! That is a great help.
    I'm not sure if it is something I will do, If the customer doesn't follow through with their payments, then I would have to give them their money back.
    I just thought it would be a good way to sell the cookware!
    I'm new and really exited about the Ex. Set!
    Maybe I will just offer the Layaway on the complete Ex Set only...
    Thanks for the flyer!
