    I have a PC debit card, but lately I've been really stressed because my hosts are taking FOREVER to get me their show money. How many of you have the PC credit card, and do you recommend it? What happens if you pay for a show with your card while waiting for the host to get you the $, and then something falls through and you're stuck with a ton of products and out a ton of money? Do you just add the products to your inventory? Sell them at fairs?-->(Actually, are we even allowed to do that?) And, can you use it for other things besides paying for shows--such as supplies, paperwork, show ingredients, etc..? It is a VISA so I'd think you could use it for anything really..
    Sorry I have so many questions. This coming year is really going to be an overhaul for my PC biz.. I'm tired of feeling like I'm spinning around in circles all stressed and unorganized.

    I have a PC credit card!

    I signed for one as I joined PC. It only made the most sense to me because that is how I operated my Avon biz. By charging it then paying it off every month. I have yet to experience bounced checks or non payments, hopefully that won't happen (knock on wood) but I charge all of my shows unless I have collected all $ and deposited it quickly. Just my experience so far. I am going into my SS3 in Jan. so I am still kind of fresh and new! I would recommend one but that's just my opinion.
    Yes you can use it on other purchases for your business like groceries, supplies etc!

    I always pay for my shows with the PC credit card. It gives checks plenty of time to clear before I have to pay the bill. Even still I don't send the show in until the checks are in hand. I do not hold the show to wait for the checks to clear. I may need the sales for a promotion and i want everyone to be happy with their quick delivery. If i have any doubt about a check clearing I have the show delivered to me.
