What is your company's

The company I'm with is Pink Zebra

1. Commission rate?

We earn 25 to 35% of our sales based on monthly personal sales, make 10% on our personally sponsored recruits (3% plus a bonus 7% making it 10%. 3% on our lines 2-4 but we also have mentor bonuses and other bonuses at different levels and get paid out on indefinite levels based on your titles is You get 25% off all products you purchase for your self

2. Monthly fee?

Website is free for first month then $9.95 there after

3. Start up cost?

Choice of two different kits $99 or $199
but this month you can take $25 off making the kits
only $74 or $174 either kit works

4. Quota to stay active?

To remain active you only have to do $150 in retail sales in a rolling 6 months period your purchases are included in this total

5. Is it possible to sell mostly online with your company

Yes you can and you are also aloud to advertise online as well
be sure to check b/c some don't let you...

6. Are your products unique?

Yes they are soft soy wax beads, Simmering Lights with changeable shades and Simmer Pots that come in different colors and shapes reed diffusers that last 3-5 months and Scented Hand Lotion and Soaps

7. What is the main reason you love your company above others?

i love the fact that you can either melt the beads in a warmer or use glass containers and wicks to create your very own recipes and scents making the products appeal able to both young and old!

8. Anything else I'm forgetting? lol

I'm sure I could think of something else but its late
and I need to get to bed...came back to add a few things I forgot

You can do fundraisers and the organization makes 40% profit and you still
earn 10% base commission unless you chose to donate your 10% then the
organization would earn 50%

Something no other company has is our HEROES Program its a Pink Zebra Charity where any one hosting a PZ party $500 + each party earns a day of childcare and approved Heroes can be awarded 3 months at a time!! Online or Offline party's included

I know its a hard decision to make and I wish you Good Luck with whichever company you chose

Hi Tamitha:

I'm with Mia Bella's Gourmet Candles.

What is your company's
1. Commision rate? We make an average of 40-50% on products. On your downline, you can make from 5-9% on first level depending on sales.

2. Monthly fee? $35.95 or $100 - we have different options for each and your website is included.

3. Startup cost? Startup is $49.95 (can be more if you want - you pick your startup kit).

4. Quota to stay active? No quotas - just your Candle of the Month pack (we now offer a points system so you can purchase whatever you want when you want).

Also,
5. Is it possible to sell mostly online with your company? Yes, we have many people that only work online.

6. Are your products unique? As far as candles go, I think we are because we use palm wax which is very clean but has a much better throw than soy. We also have personalized candles, charity candles and sculpted candles which are very different from other companies that I've seen.

7. What is the main reason you love your company above others? There are lots of reasons I love this company. The products and the compensation plan (this is the best plan I've seen).

8. Anything else I'm forgetting? You didn't forget it but we offer a unique vendor program where you can have someone sign under you that owns a small business such as nail salon, gift shop, etc and they can put our candles in their store without having to buy a minimum amount. Great perk for you and the business owner.

Best of luck in whatever company you decide on.

See someone answered about Scentsy. I would also just say if you have tried various ones...go with the one you liked the most. Nothing better then a happy customer selling herself. Good luck.

Default Pink Zebra Consultant

You have the answers for Pink Zebra, so I won't repeat them. I will say that I love the option of having flameless warmers AND flames! I love to have a candle burning for baths, or ambience. Plus the sprinkles let me create beautiful centerpieces or decor for my home and are perfect to give as gifts or even to use as favors for special occasions. Some have used for baby showers, weddings, or even for companies to give as little gifts to their employees.

I love the packaging.. who doesn't love pink zebra print??! They make perfect gifts wrapped & ready to give.... And I love the little notes that are included in each package.

For years, I searched for a candle scent that smelled like campfires... ok, weird I know. But for outdoorsy people the Light My Fire scent is amazing!! There are so many unique scents, but you can expand limitless with the custom scents you can get by combining sprinkles.

I love that I'm growing WITH the company from the ground floor and I have the opportunity that others had with their company many years ago when they started. There are many great companies, choose your favorite products... then make sure comp plans , etc are in line with what you're looking for.. then hit the ground running!

I have to agree with Barb (Mia Bella). I absolutely LOVE the products and if you like clean burning, strong scented candles, these are exceptional. We also have the melter options too. The compensation plan is wonderful and I work most of my business online. And really, the optional autoship is a win/win. It includes the website and many products that you can turn around, sell at retail, and make money each month.. you actually come out ahead! I have found to do well at any business, you need to see, touch, smell, and share the products and having them come each month is great. You can also stock up for shows/events.

Best wishes in your search.

Alison
