Princess House is one of the oldest direct sales companies out there. They were founded by Charles Collins way back in 1963. With more than 37,000 distributors, they are a well-established company that has been around for generations. In the beginning, Princess House earned its reputation through their exquisite hand-blown crystal and contemporary glass kitchenware. Since then, they have expanded their line to include other kitchen goods such as cookware, appliances, plates, flatware, and food storage.
Now, Princess House is run by Connie Tang who took over as CEO in 2012. Since she took over, Princess House has received various different accolades, including in 2015 when they were named one of the Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe.
Their mission “is to provide life-enhancing opportunities to people from all walks of life. We are guided in this effort by eight strongly-held values: respect, accountability, passion, compassion, collaboration, agility, determination, and results.”
On the website, Princess House states that they are environmentally conscious and make strides to reduce their carbon footprint in their packaging and printing procedures. Princess House states that their employees and independent consultants give back to the community in many small ways. The company has partnered with the Helping Women Now and have donated 10% of net sales from select items to help find a cure for breast cancer.
Princess House pays weekly by check or direct deposit (which is perfect if you need some quick cash). Consultants, on average, earn $125 per party according to the website at the time of writing this post. When you reach a certain threshold of sales, you will be sent a cash bonus, which is sent out once a month. The nice thing about this cash bonus is it is not tied to how many new people you bring into the business and their sales. Instead, the reward is based on your own personal sales and work.
If you do reach a certain threshold each month, you can then be found on the website under the “Find A Consultant” search bar. If people want to purchase a product, they can then conduct you through this search bar. By reaching this threshold, you are giving the opportunity to reach a greater audience and make more sales.
The next level is the role of “Organizer”, which is a management position in the company. In this position, you get paid a percentage of all sales that everyone in your group makes.
To get started, you have to buy a $139 Share + Earn Kit which has a $585 value. It includes various items to help get you started included spatulas, casserole dishes, storage bowls, coffee mugs, saucepans, and more. New consultants also have access to training materials.
Princess House consultants do receive a replica website so they can sell online and reach a greater audience. However, it is unclear if this website comes with a monthly cost.
Quotas to Maintain Active Status
To stay active, you must send in a $350 show every twelve weeks. That money must be made at one show, not through various orders throughout the twelve weeks. While you are inactive, you will not have access to any discount prices or doorbusters. However, once you send in a $350 show, you reactivate.
Princess House has tons of opportunities for their consultants.
One example is their Success Start Program. Currently, during the first four sales periods, you have the opportunity to earn a free piece of Princess House cookware with a retail value of at least $124.95 and as much as $169.95. If you manage to hit the sales goals in your first four periods, you could get all four products.
Princess House offers monthly Hostess Specials where you have the opportunity to earn hostess credits and discounts depending on how much you sell in the month.
In addition, consultants have the opportunity to win all-expense paid trips. In the past consultants have earned trips to Europe, but this year they are competing to win a free trip for two to Hawaii.
Location or Age Restrictions
Anyone over the age of 18 is welcomed to apply.
Princess House does offer a lifetime warranty for all their products, however, according to some reviews online, it does seem like this is not the case. People have written in saying the quality is not good for what they paid for and when they tried to exchange the products under warranty, they ran into quite a bit of problem. Of course, you do have to take all reviews online with a grain of salt, and there are surely tons of people out there who have had great experiences with Princess House. It is something to consider as you will be the one selling it in person. And this is another reason why it is so important to only sign up as a consultant for a company whose products you know and love personally.
