As of June 2015, Kitsy Lane is no longer in operation. Please see their sister company Chelsea Row for a similar opportunity.
Kitsy Lane launched in 2012. This company offers jewelry and accessories from emerging designers or from on-trend value-priced brands. As a Boutique Owner, you can choose from over 700 items to feature in your storefront.
Boutique Owners can build their business online with the company’s social media integration and recently introduced virtual parties and/or make sales in-person with trunk shows and catalogs.
Compensation: Boutique Owners earn up to 35% on customer purchases. Payments are sent once per month and direct deposit is available. You can also build a team and earn four levels down.
Start-Up Costs: Free. There is currently no charge for setting up an online boutique. Kitsy Lane knows that having a few pieces available to show customers in-person can greatly increase your sales, therefore you will have the option to purchase a starter ranging in cost from $99 to $499. These kits include not only store credit to purchase your favorite pieces but also business cards, order forms, training materials and more.
If you connect your Facebook account, you will also have access to the monthly Boutique Owner-only sale which includes deep discounts on new styles.
Inventory Requirements: None
Personal Website: Free. You will be provided with an online boutique at no charge. Customer emails, orders and shipping are all provided and handled by Kitsy Lane.
Quotas to Maintain Active Status: None, but not updating your online boutique may result in account termination.
Bonus Opportunities: Periodic promotions are available.
Hostess Rewards: Hostess Incentive Bracelets are included in the Kitsy Lane Business Kits. You are encouraged to design your own hostess program as well.
