Exclamation Companies

I was wondering if there has been anyone that signed up to sell for two different candle companies and if that would be a major issue.

Yes, this is not allowed by most companies, I do not know any that do allow it. I would imagine if they found out, you would be terminated right away.

reat question Afcat. I'm not 100% sure what Luminarias' policy on this is but I will check for you.

I know most companies will not allow you to sell for ANY other candle company and some say similar products.

Most I would say do not allow it. Some companies do not allow more than one company in your signature line. It is considered to be advertising/promoting another business with their products. Therefore it's against their advertising policy rules.

Luminarias does not have a non compete clause.

Thanks for posting the answer Jodi. I just going to check on that as I was not 100% sure.

Jodi's right, Luminarias does not have a "no competition" clause, but most companies do. Some consultants do it anyway. Many companies (like PartyLite) state in their contracts that you cannot sell on sites like Ebay, but there are LOTS that do.

I could see selling Luminarias and Scentsy, because although they attract the same type of customer base, they don't sell any of the same products.
I guess it depends on the individual companies.

You are welcome, Laura. Glad I could help answer the question!

Stephanie,

I agree with you. I think Luminarias and Scentsy would also make a great combination! Two very different product lines. I am just not sure Scentsy would allow it though!

You are right, Jodi, I am not sure what Scentsy would think because I am not familiar with them at all. If someone were interested in going that route, they would have to check with them.

It would be a pairing that is not in direct competition because they have totally different products, but it may be riding a fine line to some purists. I suppose it all depends on your point of view, and of course, what the companies' protocol and procedures are. I was just trying to think of an example that could apply in this scenario.

Default Sentsy

Thats the one I would like to pair up with another one. I think they have a great selection of warmers, but they have no canles. I would use both and I know some people that would use both. Plus my boyfriend likes them.
