I thought it would be a useful place to share some of the FAQs which I often get asked when someone is considering joining my team.
And if you’ve already had the questions answered by me, this is the page you need.
These are in no particular order, but based on recent questions.
Q. What is the quarterly minimum and when are the quarters?
It is $400 + GST catalogue price which is $352 net (after your discount). The quarters are Jan-March, April-June, July-September, Oct-December.
When you join SU, you are already within a calendar quarter, so Stampin’ Up! allows you that first part quarter as a ‘grace’ period. A sort of settling in period for you to find your feet. So therefore, your first quarterly minimums don’t need to be met until the one after. For example, I joined in October, but I had all the way through until the end of March to meet my minimums, and anything I bought/sold during October also counted.
Q. What happens if I don’t meet my minimums?
You will be given an extra month to try and achieve them, but if you don’t, you are not required to return anything to SU, you aren’t obliged to do anything more, and aren’t tied in to anything. You will simply go into an ‘inactive’ state, and no longer be able to sell or buy at the 20% discount. However, should you want to rejoin, you can join the same upline immediately by buying a fresh starter kit. But should you wish to go to another upline, you must wait 90 days.
Q. Do my personal purchases count towards the quarterly minimums?
Yes! SU doesn’t mind who does the buying, whether it’s you, your neighbour, or someone else. They will just look at your total figures.
Q. How do I get the discount, and how do I earn commission?
As a demonstrator, you get the immediate 20% discount off the net price at the point you make your purchase through the dedicated demonstrator website. SU does all the calculations for you! If you are selling to someone you receive the same 20% but as a commission rather than a discount.
Q. Can I earn more than 20%?
Yes, from your own personal sales, you can earn up to an extra 15% commission based on your total monthly sales/purchases.
And if you have a team, there’s extra earning potential there too.
Q. Do I have to pay tax?
This depends on how much you sell, versus how much you buy and whether you are registered for GST or not. You are not required to have an ABN until your sales reach a certain point and demonstrator Support can give you those details.
Q. I only want to buy products for myself. Is that okay?
Of course! I welcome all people to my team, whether they want to make a business, or get a discount for their own hobby, or anything in between. I appreciate all my team equally, and give as much support as I’m asked for, and as much guidance as needed.
Q. I think I might want to make this a business in the future, but at this stage; I just want to buy a few things for me, is it okay to change my mind as to what demo I want to be at a later date?
Yes! Every person who signs with SU and with my team joins up equally. We are all called demonstrators, even those who don’t actively demonstrate. However you choose to enjoy your SU benefits is up to you, and should you head down one ‘path’ and want to move in another direction, then I will fully support you along the way.
Q. I live 200 miles from you; can I still be in your team?
Of course! My team is all over the Australia, and while we cannot get together as a whole group, I have a very active facebook group for the team, I am in permanent contact with everyone as and when it’s needed, making one to one phone calls and dates.In modern life, miles make no difference!
Q. Can I read the terms and agreement before I sign up?
Yes, and I recommend that everyone does. You can find the legalese when you click on the JOIN NOW link
Q. I would like to have an online business like you; can you help me with that?
Most definitely. There are no secrets to having a successful business, and research plays a key part, but I am happy to pass on my experiences to my team. I don’t share this with anyone and everyone, only my team.
Q. If I want to do videos, will you help me get started?
Like the previous question, there are no secrets to having a YouTube business, but I only share my specific camera and video set up with my team, so of course, when you’re in the team, I will share everything with you!
Q. Do I have to have a blog?
No! Having a blog is beneficial, but not essential. You can have a successful business without any online interaction whatsoever. Blogs and social networking are still only a few years old, yet Stampin’ Up! is 25 years old…
I do hope this is useful to you, and I can’t wait for you to join Stampin’ Up! and to join my Krafty Owlz Team.
And of course, I may not have answered your question, so I will always be at the end of the phone, or the end of an email to answer it.
