Just a question. The business kit is $199.00 and then you pick one of 3 looks. How much is that? Just wondering how much it is in total to start a Silpada business. Thanks in advance....

Hi, The starter kit is $199 and it includes one of those 3 looks which you get to choose!. This is new for SD. In addition to that, you can choose any amount of the jewelry (one of each style) for 50% off at your sign up time. But buying extra samples is not required. The only requirement is to purchase your starter kit which comes with enough supplies (catalogs, order forms, mini look books etc.) for at least 5 shows, personalized business cards, a stamp for your business forms and catalogs and a FREE website. It is a great time to join because next month (April) the websites get shopping carts so customers can order online!!! And you get a $200 certificate for free jewelry when you submit your first qualified show! You also have the opportunity to earn more free jewelry just by selling!

So to start it is $199 + shipping (which I think is about $15) + your local sales tax. If you choose to purchase additional jewelry then it would be more of an investment, but totally worth it because the average SD show is $950 in sales and you get a 30% profit from that! So you can earn back your investment really fast! Hope that helps!

Good morning! I can answer that for you :) It's $199 to startup. This INCLUDES one of three jewelry looks (they are a $179 value!). It also includes your catalogs, business cards, website and all your supplies for your first shows. Online ordering is launching in April and you will not pay anything extra for basically having your own online store! It's really a great deal!

If you have any other questions, please feel free to PM me or ask it here, there are lots of knowledgable gals on this board :)

Have a fabulous day!
