1.) Do I have to keep inventory?
Absolutely not. That’s one of the advantages of joining Color Street. After purchasing the initial starter kit for $129 plus tax and shipping and now valued at over $400 (pictured below) , you don’t have to buy any more inventory if you don’t want to.
Here’s what’s in the kit:
Includes everything you need to become an Independent Stylist and hit the ground running (actually you don’t need to wait for the kit to start your business because your Color Street business website will be ready very shortly after signing up. With the launch of Hand and Nail Care along with the Lip Collection, even more items have been added to the starter kit (see below).
• 13 Sets of Nail Strips
• 72 Testers
• 20 Remover Pads
• 100 Prep Pads
• 2 Large Nail Files
• 2 Nail Buffers
• 60 Mini Nail Files
• 50 Cuticle Sticks
• 25 Catalogs
• 25 Opportunity Brochures
• Stylist Launch Guide
• Tote Bag
• NEW! Hand Lotion
• NEW! Cuticle Oil
• NEW! 3 Lipsticks
• NEW! 2 Lip Liners
• NEW! Tinted Lip Balm
• NEW! Lip Primer
Shoppers can buy directly from your Color Street replicated website as soon as you enroll and before your kit even arrives.
However, some stylists go to vendor events to sell, meet new contacts, and build relationships. In that case, we might have some inventory on hand in case anyone wants to make a purchase at an event. If you choose to keep inventory, how much you have on hand is entirely up to you.
2.) Am I required to have a minimum dollar amount of sales each month?
The short answer is no. But there is a requirement to achieve a Personal Volume of $300 at least once within a rolling 3 month period to stay active.
3.) What about International Sales?
Currently Color Street ships to the United States and Canada. Expansions to other countries are also planned.
4.) How long has Color Street been around?
Color Street was officially launched in June of 2017.
5.) Any other fees?
There is a monthly charge of $9.95 after your first month for ongoing sales and marketing materials, including back office accounting, training updates, the replicated website and communication tools. You may want to have business cards made which can be ordered through your Color Street website or on your own from places like Vistaprint usually at a discount. But it’s not required.
6.) What is the Color Street Foundation?
In July of 2018, our Founder and CEO, Fa Park, established the Color Street Foundation to make a difference in local and national communities. In partnership with our Stylist community, the Foundation creates meaningful charitable giving campaigns to benefit partner organizations. Our limited-edition nail strips, designed in support of causes that resonate with our Stylists and customers, help start the conversation and raise awareness for important causes and charitable organizations.
7.) What about Income? How does commission work?
The foundation of the Color Street business is selling products and building a strong customer base. By doing this, you can earn up to 35%.
Retail Commissions on your Personal Volume (PV):
Base Retail Commission starts at 15% of your PV. You earn an additional 10% if you sell 300 in PV in a calendar month, for a total of 25%. Base Retail Commission is paid in weekly payouts.
You can earn an additional 5-10% in Enhanced Retail Commission, paid monthly, based on your Personal Volume for the calendar month.
You can also poke around the site here. How much you make depends very much on how much you put into it and varies from person to person. See the income disclosure statement below.
8.) What is Jump Start?
The Jump Start Rewards Program is designed to reward Stylists for building their business right from the start. He or she can earn Product Credit by reaching selling and enrollment goals during the Jump Start period.
JumpStart rewards, both cash and product credits, are earned in the first 95 days.
Sales Jump Start:
Enrolling Jump Start:
During your Jump Start period, enroll a new Stylist who sells 1000 PV in their first 95 days and earn $50 USD / $65 CAD.
9.) How are stylists paid?
Your commission can be direct deposited through the Color Street Pay Portal into whichever one of the following you choose: personal bank accounts, PayPal or a Color Street debit card.
10.) I love the product and I’m interested in becoming a stylist, but not sure if I can do it.
There are Zero (0) sales requirements, so you can try it out to see where it takes you or be a hobbiest just for the discount!
Stylists can also leave the business at any time with no penalties.
