    This is my first supply order since starting PC. I really don't know what to order other than catalogs and PP reciepts. I am going to order door prizes, and recipe cards. I started to order from PP and my shipping was $8.32.Why is it only $3.50 on the order form? My director told me not to order alot of things because it would cut down on my profit, but I worry that I won't have the tools I need to do a good job. I thank you for any sugesstions in advance.

    I was having this problem, too. Maybe the same thing happened to you that happened to me. A couple of days ago, I thought I was going to work on a supply order, so I went to that screen on PP, but then got busy doing something else (probably related to my 16 month old!) So today I opened another screen to work on a supply order, and when I got through, I saw that my shipping was higher than it should have been. I saw that the screen I opened the other day sort of "saved" an order for me, although I had put nothing in. What I mean is, if I went to "find order," it was in the list. I deleted that empty order, then the shipping on my actual order was the rate it should have been. So I think if the system thinks you've already ordered that month, they won't give you the once a month discount rate.

    I really hope that made sense!

    You should not pay more then 3.50 if you haven't done any supply orders yet. You get one a month at the 3.50 rate. Go on PP and check non commission orders and select find an order. It will list all orders you are for supplies, samples, replacement parts. You should not have any since you haven't placed any orders. If you clicked on add a supply order and didn't do anything that may be out there. select that and delete it and the shipping should change on the order you want to send.

    As for supplies, If you have/don't have, the post card invites, host planners, and sales receipts for the new selling season. Don't order spring/summer sales receipts you'll have way more then you need. I would also order the door prize slips if you don't have them and recipe cards are good if they are the new season or if you need the old season for a show in august. I do the opportunity brouchu and do you do door prizes, if you don't have them then order a sample of coffee or seasonings. You don't need much so don't go crazy for supplies. You can always borrow some if you need it, but I find I end up with extra sometimes if I order too many. Hope that helps.

    You get one order each month at the $3.50 rate. If you order more than that, you pay a higher shipping rate.

    Did you start an order and then close out PP then open it up again and start a new order? Maybe you didn't send it, but had more than one order in PP.

    It's a slip that you had out to everyone at a kitchen show and have them fill it out completely. It's an easy way to get someone's information b/c sometimes people don't fill out their order forms entirely. You then gather all the slips and then give something away such as a cake tester or a twixit clip. Something small that you can get on the supply order sheet. ;)

    Thanks, I ordered before I read this, but thank you all so much. I don't know what I would do without this site. I will just learn as I go. Still loving it.

    Paperwork/Supply Order Question

    There are items that say NO CHARGE FOR FIRST PACK, but when I enter them in PP, they are not coming up that way. How do I enter them so that I am not charged for my first one?

    I just did my supply order and it won't let you put a x next to items that aren't N/C. Look at you supply order form in your changeover kit and it will say which items are N/C. Click the box next to those items and it should work! Mine did! :)

    :p Never mind. I figured it out. I was trying to tab over to the N/C column and physically put an X there. Then I tried to "right click" that column and it asked me if I wanted to delete it. :eek: Then, almost by accident, I did a simple left click of the mouse, and tada! There it was. Thanks for your help!

    I was charged $12-something for shipping on my very first supply order, but was later credited for it on my first commission check.
     
Have something to add?
