The short answer is 20% commission on your sales as a base. Consultants can make up to 33% on personal sales.
How to get started
To become a consultant you need to purchase a kit for $99 USD or $125 CDN. The kit is also on sale for $25There are no monthly fees and a small insurance fee that you will pay in January every year. After that are no inventory requirements.
What are the minimum requirements?
In order to be an active consultant, you will need 250 QV in sales in one month, every three months. So the example you sign up in August and sell 250, if you don’t sell 250 in September and October you would still be active. But that’s the bare minimum. You make a 25% commission off your sales. 250 QV is about 250 in Sales in Canadian and a bit less in the USA.
Are there bonuses?
In your fast start period (the first three months of being an Epicure Consultant) there are more cash and product bonuses you can earn. Eg. if you host 4 qualified cooking classes in the first month you will receive a $100 CDN product credit. You can also earn free conference registration and cash bonuses.
I routinely host my own cooking classes and earn free products that my family and I use.
What percentage do consultants make?
You start at 25% and if you sell more than $2,000 a month you make an extra 3%.
But as you share with others and help others share the good food movement as you move up with Epicure on the compensation plan. Your commission rate will change to become higher. It changes from 25% to 28% and at the leadership at 30%.
So can I make money with Epicure?
Yes! Yes, you can but it comes down to really what your goals are and if you want to have a business or just get your own Epicure products with your discount.
We have a wide range of consultants, most are part-time and some are full-time like me.
I would also watch for things like expenses. Don’t buy lots of stock! Extras, you don’t need 500 business cards to start, and monitor your expenses on your business.
So what do Epicure Consultants Make?
It’s hard to give an average without official stats, but 25% of sales of let’s say 1000 of retail is 250 in sales. Not including any bonuses you would get or depending on where you are in the compensation plan.
