can we sell online?

can we sell online?

our answer:

Yes, if you stay within policy and sell on your own personal page, timeline, or group. If you are going to sell in someones else's group or page you will need to get permission from the owner or admin of that page or group.

P&P answer:

P&P 5.10 - Online Activity: "Independent Consultants may not use any online forum (eBay, classifieds, Craigslist, or any other online retail tool) to bundle, distribute, or sell Paparazzi products.

Independent Consultants are not allowed to use a mass e-mailer or generate 'SPAM' for their Paparazzi Business. 

Social media or networking is permitted for the intention of developing a warm market, or networking with current associates, but is not permitted for the direct sale or distribution of Paparazzi product. Consultants are not allowed to recruit through any Paparazzi Corporate social media page, or through any social media page that does not directly belong to that Consultant. This also includes directly contacting someone through instant messages or e-mails that were found through a social media site not directly owned by that Consultant.

Violation of this policy can result in termination, as potential Consultants who are interested in doing Paparazzi can quickly become disinterested through heavy online recruiting activities. 

Any and all online activity of Consultants with the intention of promoting Paparazzi must be appropriately designated as an 'Independent Consultant.' In accordance to Section 5.13, Paparazzi products must not be displayed or sold alongside any other product(s). This policy extends to all online forums including but not limited to websites, shopping carts, and social media platforms."

Product Questions

how much do i charge for each piece?

ARE THERE ANY SOCIAL MEDIA SITES FOR SUPPORT?

our answer:

You charge a retail price of $5.00 for each piece. These pieces include: necklace and earring sets, bracelets, rings, larger earrings, and hair accessories. You buy each individually at the wholesale price of $2.75 and sell at the retail price of $5.00, making an instant retail profit of 45%. No product can be resold or retailed for less than the suggested retail price of $5.00 USD. Exceptions include the following:
The Starlet Shimmer line: This line consists of kits of 10 rings, earrings, or bracelets. Each kit comes in assorted colors. You purchase each kit of 10 items at the wholesale price of $5.00, which breaks down to costing you $.50 each. Then you sell each of the 10 items at the retail price of $1.00, making you an instant retail profit of 50%. (Click here for pictures and more information)
The Zi Collection line: This line consists of 20 stunningly glamorous necklaces. You buy each individually at the wholesale price of $16.25 and sell at the retail price of $25.00, making an instant retail profit of 35%. (Click here for pictures and more information)

P&P answer:

P&P 5.11 - Retailing or Reselling: "After the initial product or inventory is purchased, no product can be resold or retailed for less than the suggested retail price (no product under $5 USD). This includes, but is not limited to, offering or advertising free items through buy X, get X promotions or giving free gifts with a purchase. This same policy applies whether the free promotional item being offered is a Paparazzi product or a product not carried in Paparazzi’s inventory. 
Offering or advertising these types of promotions lowers the retail price of each piece sold below the required $5 USD minimum. Doing so compromises the entire Paparazzi program for all Consultants. Any promotion of a Consultant’s independent business or the Paparazzi opportunity through any channel of communication (public or private) is considered advertising.
Additionally, giving away free items that are not sold by Paparazzi can lead customers to the assumption that those items are part of Paparazzi’s product offering. As outlined in Section 5.13, offering non-Paparazzi products alongside Paparazzi products compromises its good name and can lead to the Paparazzi name and brand being associated with inferior products. 
Any exceptions to this policy must be authorized by an official Paparazzi officer in writing prior to the sale or event."

After ordering the original kit, do you order more kits or just order certain pieces?

After ordering the original kit, do you order more kits or just order certain pieces?

You log in and shop from the available pieces. Keep in mind that although new jewelry pieces are added daily (except on weekends and holidays), they sell out daily too. We recommend if you like certain pieces to buy them because if they sell out they rarely come back.
​Review the "How do I log in to order?" answer if you need help logging in.  

how do i get on the fashion fix?

HOW DO I GET ON THE FASHION FIX?

Enrollment in the Fashion Fix is limited by availability. A Consultant can request to be placed on the waiting list for Fashion Fix enrollment anytime by contacting Paparazzi Support (855.697.2727).
As spots in the Fashion Fix become available, Consultants will be subscribed to the Fashion Fix in the order in which they were added to the waiting list.
When a Consultant is subscribed to the Fashion Fix from the waiting list, they will be notified via email and their credit card will be charged when the next Fashion Fix processes.
Note that the waiting list is about 1-3 months.

how often do we get new styles?

HOW OFTEN DO WE GET NEW STYLES?

New items are released daily at different times, but there aren't releases on weekends and holidays.

Can I sell in stores and boutiques?

Can I sell in stores and boutiques?

our answer:

Yes, some consultants have treated this like a booth fee and paid a monthly fee to have their inventory at the location all month long.
The best way that we would suggest is to have the store owner sign up to sell.

P&P answer:

P&P 3.5 - Business Entities: "Certain types of corporations or businesses can apply to be a Paparazzi Independent Consultant through the Independent Consultant Agreement. Business entities are allowed to retail the product through any medium available to them (internet, retail store, etc.) as long as the retail or sales price to the end consumer is never lower (advertised or otherwise) than the suggested retail price per unit ($5 USD). Any exceptions to the suggested retail price offering must be approved in writing by an authorized officer of Paparazzi, and will only be considered for show events. This is in an effort to protect the business of all Independent Consultants. 
During the registration process, all policies still apply that are applicable from the Agreement. All persons, including Consultants, principles, and employees, of the corporation or business entity are held to the “Vested Interest” clause in Section 3.2."

Tax Questions

how does sales tax work?

HOW DOES SALES TAX WORK?

our answer:

When ordering from Paparazzi, we pay sales tax on the retail value (i.e. $5 per piece of jewelry). For example, if you buy 5 pieces of jewelry (wholesale cost of $2.75) totaling $13.75, you will be charged sales tax on the retail value of $25.00.

P&P answer:

P&P 8.3 - Sales Tax: "In states where the Paparazzi products are subject to sales tax, the Consultant is charged for the sales tax at the full Retail Sales amount at the time of the wholesale purchase of inventory. This is intended to ensure that each state tax agency is made whole on any potential sales from the transactions of that wholesale product. Paparazzi collects these taxes at the time of wholesale inventory purchase and remits it to the state on behalf of the retail sale that the Consultant may now have. The sales tax is charged at the local level of the location where the order is shipped. Paparazzi also collects retail sales tax (based on shipping location) from customers that order online from the Paparazzi website.
This also allows the Paparazzi Consultant the option of charging their local taxes on their Customer transactions and recuperate that cost, or absorbing it into their business structure; while at the same time not bringing any uncovered sales tax liability on Paparazzi or the Consultant. 
Paparazzi is required to remit sales tax this way."

do i need a tax id?

DO I NEED A TAX ID?

No, you are not required to have a Tax ID (EIN) number to work your paparazzi business. This is something you need to talk to a tax professional and ask them what they advise.  
We personally set up a business and have a Tax ID number but you need to consult your Accountant or CPA about this.  

Compensation Plan Questions

How do I qualify for a commission check?

DO I NEED A TAX ID?

P&P 7.1 - Bonuses and Commissions: "A Consultant must be active (accumulate and/or purchase a minimum of 50 PV within a commission period) in good standing, and in compliance with the Agreement to qualify for bonuses and commissions. So long as the Consultant complies with the terms of the Agreement, Paparazzi shall pay commissions to qualified Consultants in accordance with the Compensation Plan and their qualifications. If at any time during a month a Consultant account is suspended for compliance or policy issues, their commission check for that month will be held until the Compliance Department determines a resolution to the issue. If it is found that there was no violation, the check will be issued at that time. If the account is terminated as a result of proven violations, the commission will not be paid. 
The minimum amount for which Paparazzi will issue a check or direct deposit is $20.00 (after a $2.50 processing fee for printed checks). If a Consultant’s earnings for the month total less than the aforementioned amount, those funds will be placed on their Paparazzi account to be added to the next commission payout cycle. Once the minimum amount has accumulated, the standard payout process will be triggered.
In the event that a check must be reissued due to misinformation out of the control of Paparazzi, an additional $2.50 will be charged and taken from the check amount. "

When do commission checks get paid out?

When do commission checks get paid out?

P&P 7.2 - Commission Times: "Commissions are only paid in the form of checks or direct deposit, and are paid as a whole payment in relation to the activity within the last previously closed commission period. Commission periods (and qualification periods) begin the first day of every calendar month at 12:00 AM EST, and conclude the evening of the last day of every calendar month at 11:59 PM EST. After a commission period is closed, a monthly audit and commission calculation begins. Final commission calculations will be posted (via the Virtual Back Office) around the 10th of the month, and the checks mailed and deposits made no later than the 20th day of the following month for which the commissions are being processed. Commission checks are only mailed to the mailing address on file, and are issued only in the primary name on file (personal or business). "

How much PV do I need to order to be active for the month?

How much PV do I need to order to be active for the month?

How much PV do I need to order to be active for the year?

How much PV do I need to order to be active for the year?

our answer:

200 PV

P&P answer:

P&P 11.2 - Cancellation Due to Inactivity: "In order to keep a Consultant’s Agreement and account active, the Consultant must have accumulated at least 200 PV within a rolling 12 consecutive month window. If at any time the Consultant has a period of 12 consecutive months wherein the 200 PV minimum is not reached, the Agreement will be canceled; the account and position terminated, and the measures in Section 11.1 will take effect. Paparazzi will not provide or issue any written confirmation of the cancellation.
It is the consultant’s responsibility to maintain and monitor these PV requirements. Paparazzi is not required to provide notification prior to or upon cancellation due to inactivity."
