Most of us know that Mary Kay Cosmetics offers a 90% buyback on inventory for consultants. This is a moving year window as long as the consultant remains a consultant. So if a consultant decides to exercise the buyback option, the amount eligible to be repurchase is the amount purchased within the year of the return.
Unfortunately many are misinformed and think it must be made by the one year mark as a consultant, so often a consultant may feel the need to make a decision before she really even knows how to be a consultant. But a consultant must also realize if she comes in with a large order and then perhaps only orders a couple of minimum orders and decides after two years to take advantage of the buyback, the original large order will be outside the year window and only the few smaller orders made will qualify for the buyback. Imho, it is smart to start with some inventory and then build the inventory as one builds their customer base.
If one looks at any of the information from the Company... if one is working MK even part time but seriously, "profit level" is approx. $3,600 w/s. Now if someone was at profit level within a year and decided to quit, she would receive 90% back of the $3,600 - (if she hadn't sold anything)
so how shocking is it when I read a post like this on a negative site...
a consultant that was convinced to "mk doesn't work" and had just received a return/reimbursement check from the Company.
Quote, "• inpinkruins7683 - Thank you guys for the reassuring things you say
I recieved my blue check today for 11,103.12 "
look at the amount!! she wasn't a director, she wasn't selling stuff, what in the world did she need that amount of product for, my only guess is she was loving the prizes and attention... guess she decided it was getting too expensive to keep "cheating" your way to looking successful. Why in the world would she have that much inventory? There may be a few directors that really take advantage of having consultants order to help production but no director would want a consultant not selling product to keep ordering like that because it would not take a genius to figure out, it will go back and a chargeback will follow.
Of course everyone on the site will be so proud that she returned the product and congratulate her but will the spelling nazi's come out to tell her "i before e except after c" or do they reserve ripping on spelling and grammar only for mker's?
My opinion... start and then build by ordering the product you are selling and your clients are using..as you gain more clients, expand your inventory.
