How much commission does a Scentsy Consultant make?

Hey There!  Since your here you must be thinking that Scentsy is a great way to make some extra cash!  I know when I was first thinking about selling Scentsy I was really curious as to how much money I could actually make selling Scentsy but there wasn’t really a good answer out there.  I’ll try to break it down for you a little so maybe it’ll help you decide if Scentsy is right for you or not!! 🙂

When you first join you start as an Escential Consultant making 20% commission on your sales.  Once you reach $1000 in sales, which happens a lot faster than you expect, you receive a promotion to Certified Consultant and then earn 25% commission.  You will then earn 25% commission from there on out.  If you sell over $2000 in one month though for that month you will earn a 5% bonus making it 30%!

Some consultants sell Scentsy just for a little extra cash and others do it for a living.  One lady in my downline is doing it so she can take her kids to Disney World!  So your income could range from $100 to thousands a month.  I know a consultant who made over $10,000 in one month!  It all depends on how much you want to put into your business.  And it might take a little time to get to the thousands a month income.  The consultant who made over $10,000 in one month though has only been selling for 3 years, really not too bad at all!  SuperStar Directors can be making 6 figures a year!

Let’s just do a scenario so you can see about how many parties you would need to do to make $1,000 per month.  If you have no downline and all your income is solely based on your sales, you will need $3,500 in sales to make $1,050 in commission.  If an average party is $500 in sales then that comes out to 7 parties a month!  That’s 2 parties a week, not too bad at all!  And some could even be basket parties which require less work.  Think about it…if a party is 2 hours and then about another hour pulling together the orders that’s 21 hours of work for $1,050!  That’s $50 an hour!!!

Now those numbers were based on only doing sales.  I can almost guarantee that if you start doing 7 parties a month you will start getting recruits.  Every recruit I have has approached me about selling after having a party.  Once you start getting consultants below you then you start making money off of their sales too which in the end can be a huge way to make a substantial income.  Then you won’t need to have as many parties a month to meet your financial goal.

Here’s the Scentsy Compensation Plan to help explain a little.

Frequently Asked Questions about Selling

Q: I’m not really a “sales-y” kind of person. Can I still be good at this?

A: At Scentsy, it’s all about relationships, not hard sell tactics. If you enjoy socializing and sharing Scentsy products with friends and family, you have all the qualifications you need to succeed.

In fact, the complete lack of sales pressure and the simplicity of our products are the main reasons so many Scentsy customers decide to become Consultants. They find themselves enjoying a party experience instead of having to sit through a typical sales presentation and suddenly realize, “Hey—I can do this!”

Q: What are the advantages of direct selling and owning your own business?

A: The freedom of being your own boss, the flexibility to set your own schedule and work as many (or as few) hours as you choose, and the limitless potential for success are just a few of the reasons people take up direct selling. And anyone can do it! You don’t need a degree or a background in sales or a big chunk of start-up capital. Direct selling is an easy, enjoyable way to earn extra income.

Q: Why should I join Scentsy instead of another direct selling company?

A: Everything Scentsy does is based on three core principles: Simplicity, Authenticity, and Generosity. Scentsy is an active member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA), an industry organization founded to promote and uphold the highest level of business ethics and service to consumers. Our affiliation with the DSA means you can be confident about doing business with a trustworthy company.

Q: How do I get started?

A: Call your Scentsy Consultant or visit their website and Join Scentsy online. We’ll send your Scentsy Starter Kit for just $99. It includes tester fragrances, business supplies, and demo products. Your Sponsor will help you get started and show you how to make the most of Scentsy’s training and support tools.  To join my team CLICK HERE!

Q: How much can I expect to earn when I Join Scentsy?

A: The amount you can earn depends completely on how much time and energy you want to invest. Some people Join Scentsy make just enough to afford their monthly car payment. Others Join Scentsy to have a part time business.  Other want to make it a full fledged career. Consultants make 20%–30% commission on their own sales as well as additional bonuses on the sales of other Consultants they sponsor. Some of our Consultants opt to sell just enough for a little extra pocket money, while our Superstar Directors can make six-figure incomes per year.

Q: What other benefits does Scentsy offer to Consultants?

A: Every Scentsy Consultant gets a free website for 3 full months ($10/month after that), a free online Workstation to organize and run their business, no inventory to manage, no credit card fees, and free shipping on orders over $200 (discounted shipping outside the contiguous U.S.).

Q: What kind of support and training does Scentsy provide?

A: At Scentsy, Consultants are truly sponsored and mentored, not just recruited. Along with support from your Sponsor and your upline Director (your Sponsor’s Sponsor), you’ll get access to web-based training tools and an online forum for connecting with fellow Consultants. We’ll send you a New Consultant Start-Up Guide, promotional products, and marketing tools.

Scentsy’s fully-staffed Consultant Support Department is available every weekday from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. (MT). We also hold an annual convention and seasonal training and networking events throughout North America, Puerto Rico, and Guam.

Q: Are there any scripts to memorize or a dress code for parties Join Scentsy?

A: Definitely not! We do provide great training tools and advice on how to have a successful party, but the way you run your parties—and your business—is entirely up to you. From formal presentations to completely unstructured gatherings to one-on-one visits, the choice is yours. We intentionally keep our product line and pricing simple because that makes it easy for our Consultants to relax and be themselves.

Q: Will I be obligated to meet any sales quotas?

A: You’re free to schedule as many or as few parties as you like and sell as much or as little product as you like. Scentsy processes account cancellations only for accounts with less than $200 in sales in 3 months time.

Q: What if this just doesn’t work for me?

A: At Scentsy we realize that, even with the best of intentions on both sides, not all partnerships are meant to be. As a Consultant or a Host you’re free to leave Scentsy at any time. There is no cancellation penalty.

    What is group and team wholesale volume? Also is your commision a percentage of what others make? For example, if I have someone under me and they sell $1000, what would my commision be if any?

    Thank you

    • kidsafecandles kidsafecandles

      Mariana, Group and Team wholesale volume is 75% of your PRV (personal retail volume). The only difference between the two is if you have a director underneath you because then it’s all the same group but two different teams. And yes, you do earn overrides on consultants you recruit. How much all depends on your title – it can range from 2% up to 9%! Let me know if you have any other questions!

    I am curious to know more about the home parties verses the basket parties. Can you make a good income solely on just basket parties? A

    • kidsafecandles kidsafecandles

      Basket parties are very similar to catalog parties but you include a set of mini-testers so that customers can smell the scents! The hostess takes the bag for a week or two and let’s co-workers/friends/family smell and place orders! The host rewards are the same as a home party. In my experience home parties tend to have higher sales and more bookings BUT I also hardly ever do home parties – maybe 5-10 a year! I mainly do basket parties and have even met some directors who have never done a home party. Do what works for you and your life, that’s the best part about being your own boss! So to answer you question – yes you can be successful doing only basket parties!

    Might be a stupid question but do I report my earnings to Uncle Sam? My 20-30% commission will be less after paying taxes.
