Hi there! Are you interested in joining my team but have a few questions about how it works? Well, you’re in the right place! I thought I’d answer a few common questions I get asked about becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. If you already know you want to be a demo, you can click here.
Q. What is the quarterly minimum and when are the quarters?
The quarterly minimum is $300. This includes purchases you make yourself. If you sold $100, and spent $200 on yourself, you made your minimum for the quarter. If you would like just to be a “happy shopper”, taking advantage of the 20% discount, you would have to spend about $100 a month to meet your quarterly minimum.
The quarters are broken down into four, three-month quarters. 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 March, but I had all the way through until the end of June to meet my minimums, and anything I bought/sold during March 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 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 shopping. 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. If you are selling to someone you receive the same 20% but as a commission rather than a discount.
