Hello,

I've been looking for a work from home opportunity for a long time and I'm considering Watkins. I was just wondering about any additional costs other than the $40 start up fee. I thought I saw something about a monthly fee...what is this for? If I join and just get the $40 package can people still order from me online? What about buying samples, how much do they cost...I don't want to invest $100 in a start up package since I'm new at this and don't know how successful I'll be, I'd prefer to just buy lots of samples. Also, how much is the shipping fee approximately? TIA for any info.

Shannon

Hi Shannon,
To become a member the enrollment is $40. Aside from that I like to suggest a package of catalogs and one assortment of samples. Samples vary form about $6.99 to $10.99 for a package of 36 count to 72 count. I suggest going with the assortment (this one is a variety pack and less $).

There are programs that have monthly min's, but it is not needed. They are all optional. As you build your business, you may want to consider these programs. When you reach that point, the programs are really a wash.......meaning you'll hit those mins regardless.

Here is the shipping schedule for associates:

Thanks for all the info...okay I've got lots of questions:
I'm in Canada, so if people order from me or if I place an order, is the stuff shipped from Canada or US?
Do I have to give my social insurance #?
How do I get paid when people order online?
How much do catalogues cost?
Can I buy buisness cards from Watkins or do I have to get them made myself?

Hi Shannon
I am in Canada as well. When people order from you or you place an order the products are shipped to us from Winnipeg.

No you don't give your Social Insurance number.

When people order online from you, you will receive a cheque around the 10th of the following month for all online orders you have had. When people order from you locally or you order yourself, you get the profit right away.

The catalogues are $9.99 for a package of 10.

You can buy business cards or make them yourself. Its your choice. I got mine from Vista print.

Welcome to the board.

There is a 30 dollar Annual renewal fee. Which is waived when you reach higher sales volume.Edited by: lisa_spice
