What they mean is “Is this company going to trick me into signing up for some kind of monthly shipment that I don’t want and charge me a huge monthly fee for it?”
I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND! I have been duped once or twice too.
The short answer: To become a wholesale member of Young Living, you DO NOT have to sign up for a monthly package or autoshipment. You are able to buy as little OR as much as you want at any time.
*now, I must say that Young Living DOES OFFER a monthly program that is OPTIONAL and I take advantage of it because it has fantastic rewards. I love our products, I purchase alot, and therefore I get rewarded as a loyal customer*
Anyone. Yes, ANYONE may sign up to have a wholesale member account with Young Living. The ONLY requirement is to purchase a starter kit. The kits cover your one-time membership fee and they get you started with a good amount of product at a much bigger discount than buying all of the parts separately.
Seriously, I can’t believe they can afford to sell the kits at that price!
All members have their own account, and a referral ID (aka member #) that goes with it.
When you click on a link such as mine, you will open a YL company sign up page. Mine is pre-filled so that you stay connected with me and I can support you!
Go to the next page to fill in your info. Remember to write down your username, password and 4 digit PIN #.
There IS a spot on that page that requires a SS# OR a Tax EIN. This is because a wholesale account could potentially be used for a home business, and the IRS requires the info.
Why? Because many people end up “just selling a little bit” to friends and family and end up with income that YL has to report. It keeps things tidy for them.
If you don’t want to do a business, you still have to fill it out. That’s just the law. YL has a BBB rating of A+ and is a 21 year old company, so they are secure.
Then you pick your kit. Kit choices – 10% during the month of February!
At the end of the account set-up, you will see the OPTION to sign up for Essential Rewards. This IS an autoship, but by no means is anyone trying to trick you into it.
Some people know that they want to purchase every month and it is a convenience for those people so that they can combine it all into one shipment one the first order and save on shipping costs.
*IF you intend to have a home business, Essential Rewards is a requirement and you can decide to do that at any time. It is a minimum 100 pv order per month for business.
If you enjoy your oils and would like to get customer rewards for your purchases, Essential Rewards is the way to go. It is a fantastic program, totally flexible – you can get what you want each month, and can cancel without hassle.
Once your account is set up, you are able to add more product to your order before processing if you would like to.
I always recommend the Fed-Ex 3-5 day shipping, but do know that it may take 7 business days to get to you. There is usually a 24-48 hour warehouse processing time before Fed Ex picks it up for delivery.
Make sure you hit the order button so that it processes!
