    I've read through all the posts regarding the outlet and I want you guys to make sure I understand completely.....When a customer orders from the outlet, we consultants do not get credit for it?...and there's no way to directly link them from our own webites to the outlet?

    No, that is not correct.

    The outlet is a part of your personal website. You get full commission on each outlet sale.

    Outlet products CANNOT be ordered as part of a show. You CANNOT access the Outlet when you are shopping on your website as part of a show. You can ONLY access it if you are placing an individual order.


    Does that make sense now?

    if they go to your website and order from the outlet you do get credit for it. If they go to PC 's website a director gets it. And if you link to your website you can only link to the front page. If you link it anywhere else then it goes to the main PC website and it gets sent to a director.

    When someone orders from the outlet they can only do that from your website. You still get your commission on that order. They cannot order outlet items off a show. Sooooo.... if someone wants to order off the outlet they have to click on "place an order" and then choice #2 where it says they are NOT connected w/a show. Does that make sense? Enjoy the outlet - it is a GREAT way to make extra commission! You may want to tell your guests that "the outlet is constantly changing, so go ahead and bookmark my website and visit it often". Erin, I hope that helps!

    Are you qualified yet? You will not have the Outlet on your site until you've qualified.

    go back to your site, click order online
    it will give you 2 options select option 2
    when the attention box pops up click continue
    the entire catalog will be categorized at the left of the screen
    the outlet is at the bottom
    click on that and then click view all

    Yup! Even though you don't have the Outlet yet having the website is a huge boost to your business. It is great to start getting traffic going there now and then once you have the Outlet you can send out a customer newsletter telling them all about it. Then sit back and watch the orders come in!! Thanks to Joy (Tasty Tidbits), her Outlet newsletter has added at least $200 a month to my monthly sales!! It will be HUGE for you!! Keep plugging away!

    with tasty tidbits, she will send you a notice when newsletters are avaliable. You have a log in and password and then have access to the flyers/newsletters. You can email them to yourself and then send them out to your contacts. Tasty tidbits does not send out emails for us.
    :) hope that helps.

    Yes, I just orderd off the website for the outlet and it was sent to another consultant for commission. I am so bummed. If I would of read this thread I would of signed up for a new website and ordered off of it. Learn from mistakes!

    Now for sure I need to have a website. I never used it the last 1 1/2 i had it. But now I might ,I am doing fundraisers, booth benefits and bridal expo... Guess would be to my benefit now.

    As a consultant, you can also order from the outlet from CC.

    I have copied the direct link from the Outlet on my website to emails and send them out. What I do is collect orders each month (or 2 weeks if I get a lot), then send it in as one big order under my DD's name (she has hosted for me before). I get the commission, people pay less shipping, and they love it! The direct link does work. You just have to be sure you go from your own website to the Outlet.
