Frequently Asked Questions:
How much is it to start up?
There is no start up fee, but your Business case is £15 which will be invoiced when you place your first order.
What is in the Business Case?
Lipstick samples, perfume samples, a selection of skin care and foundation sachets, a full size Aloe Vera Moisturiser, order forms, business manual and everything you need to start your business.
How much are the catalogues and how do I order them?
Your first 10 are free from me when you join Oriflame, afterwards:
pack of 5 £1.50
You can order catalogues on line or when you place your order by phone. It is not recommended that you order hundreds of catalogues and post them through doors in the neighbourhood.
If you do, you will be lucky to get any orders whatsoever and will quickly become disheartened.
Oriflame sells best when you introduce it to customers on a personal basis. Introduce it to your family and close friends. Use the products yourself and tell your potential customers why you like certain products.
Then ask your family and friends who they know who might be interested. Although your sales may start slowly, if you concentrate on selling skincare, your sales and income will become quite steady.
Do I have to place an order every catalogue?
No, but your customers expect to see a new catalogue, and if they know you are reliable they are more likely to buy regularly from you. Also, if you don’t sell you don’t earn money. If you do not place an order for 12 consecutive months you will cease to be a consultant and will need to re-register.
Is there a minimum order?
No, however, you will not receive any discount if you only place a single order for less than £50 and will need to pay for delivery costs. If you place orders with a total value of more than £50 during a single catalogue you will receive discount.
How do I earn my money?
Sell the products, place an order, receive and deliver your products, collect money from the customer, pay your invoice from Oriflame and the money left in your hand is yours
If your total order (at customer price):
is £50 or less then you earn no commission
is between £50 £109 you earn 23p per pound (23%)
is more than £110 you earn 30p per pound 30%) and you receive a free product worth approx. £12
If you sell at least £110 in each of your first 3 catalogues you will receive a free starter programme product for each catalogue Currently the total retail value of these 3 free products is £53
You can also make a profit by buying special low priced products when you place your order and these can be sold on at full price.
You can also make a profit by purchasing a demonstration product each catalogue which the company chooses at a steeply discounted price.
Can I still join if I only want to order for myself and family?
Yes! Many consultants have become very successful merely by taking a few catalogues to work. Initially, work colleagues may show little interest but soon begin to notice the different appearance of the consultant as she begins to use a regular skincare routine and fashionable make up. Sales will be the result and with the passage of time, sales will grow and grow on a regular basis.
How much are the delivery costs?
From £2.25 order value £50, £3.95 order value up to £105, or £3.45 over £105
