    Actually you can't order outlet items from P3.

    You can order them from Consultant's Corner (discounted to you, no commission), or you can order them from your PWS (if you are qualified) as a guest (not discounted, but commission is paid to you).

    Figure it both ways. Keep in mind that the shipping if you order from CC is only $4.25, no matter what you order.

    Don't forget that outlet sales off your PWS count towards your career sales! I know it's probably not a HUGE amount of stuff that you're buying, but still!

    I know someone mentioned the other night that they were only $2 away from their $15K- I totally would have bought something off the outlet for that!

    Just something else to keep in mind for another long-term goal you may have of reaching that $15K ;)

    Jessica I'm willing to bet your $15K will be here faster than you can imagine! Two months and you're at $2K and we haven't even hit the fall/holiday season yet? I give you nine months ;) Whaddya say? ;)

    I'm doing this much more p/t than you are and I'll hit it by the end of my 13th month, and my first two months were a VERY slow start!

    Jessica, you are taking Giant Steps compared to what I did in my first year. (Having a booth at the Mall for example). I reached the $15,000 for my first anniversary, so I have confidence you will too!

    If you order frome the outlet as a guest can you do it under your own name/credit card? Or do you have to use someone else's computer entirely?

    You CAN order outlet items from P3 - for even less than the price on the outlet. That's what I did in the beginning until someone pointed out that it's better to order through the PWS so the sales go towards career sales. And you get commission so that makes up for not getting the additional discount.

    It's a Sample Order just in case you are wondering.

    From the PWS you do get 20% back on commission, but you have to pay taxes on that commission AND you are paying a higher shipping charge. I weighed the options and decided that ordering from CC was cheaper in the long run, so that's how I order.

    I put my Outlet orders in my DD's name with her 10% discount. I usually do a bunch of orders together... Send out an email to check out the Outlet to my customers, combine the total and prorate shipping. They appreciate the discounted shipping (because with 5 or more orders, it is less than $4.25 each unless someone has a big order)! You may want to try that! I've had several months where my Outlet orders were $50 to $100 which really make a difference in the monthly totals!

    Before I reached my $15k, anything I needed outlet or catalogue, I ordered it as a guest. I used my own name and cc info.
