Q: Will I be pressured to meet certain goals?
A: While we want you to be eager to share YSE products with others we understand that your family life comes first. There are no sales quotas required to stay active and as long as you place a $50 order or have $50 in sales every 3 months you will remain active. Sell all you want when you want. Your earnings are based on the level of sales.
Q: Do I have to build a team?
A: No, we are not direct sales and we decided to be different in how we do things. Our hope is that you will have more time to focus on your own network.
Q: Do I have to keep inventory?
A: Yes, you will need items to have on hand so that when you have an event you can show customers the product we have to sell. You can sell via your website and catalog orders but we do find that you sell more when you have it on hand for someone to take home. If you do have to place an order it will be shipped from our warehouse and mailed directly to the customer for a Flat Rate shipping fee of $5.50. You can place your order via phone, fax or email and you will pay Yourself Expression the cost after you deduct your commission rate. Example $100 in retail sales is ordered and you are on a 40% discount level. You will owe YSE $60 plus tax if applicable and shipping. Your earnings from that order are $40.
Q: How do I get paid?
A: YSE makes it easy and hassle free. You collect the money from your customer directly. If you sell the items directly from your event you would have already bought them from YSE and would just keep the money from the customer. If you need to place an order then you will purchase the items from YSE at your commission level and include tax if applicable and the $5.50 Flat Rate shipping. If they purchase online you will receive 40% commission to your Paypal account on retail priced items. If you choose to share a sale we are having you will get 40% minus the sale percentage. Commission is not paid on last chance clearance items. If you are doing a fundraiser of any kind you can get your commission and give as much of it as you want to your fundraiser.
As for payment options you can choose to accept Cash, Checks (with ID) and credit card sales that we suggest using the Square set up. You must already have a Paypal account as well to receive any compensation owed for online sales. Commission for online sales is paid normally in 10-12 business days from the sale.
Q: What if I have a return or damaged item?
A: If an item is damaged when a customer receives it they can contact our office and get a quick and courteous replacement. We may not be perfect but we always want our customer service to be. We offer a 30 day replacement policy for any defective items and 15 days for items that aren't what they want. We do not offer a refund but a store credit instead. All items must be returned in it’s original packaging.
Q: How are taxes reported?
A: As an Expressionist you are self employed and considered an independent contractor. You are responsible for paying your state, local and federal taxes. You must report all income earned on your personal or business taxes. We encourage you to keep detailed records, have a separate bank account for YSE and talk with a tax professional. Yearly we report to the IRS all earnings of each Expressionist that have received payments or bonus incentives from YSE. You will receive a 1099 on bonus earnings and compensations over $600. Taxes are different for every state, city and county so you will need to check with yours for the specifics.
