The three steps to becoming a Tupperware independent consultant are to sign up with a local consultant, purchase a starter kit from Tupperware and begin to sell Tupperware products at a home or online party or to individuals. Starter kits include a consultant manual, order forms, party hostess forms and catalogs in addition to Tupperware products. Registering online, rather than through a consultant, is also an option, although online registrants miss out on various new consultant incentives.
Starter kit contents change seasonally, and starter kit prices vary monthly based on changing promotional discounts. All Tupperware consultants receive training and support online and through Web-based meetings. Prospective consultants can use the Tupperware.com website, if necessary, to locate a consultant in order to register with Tupperware.
To maintain active status with Tupperware, consultants must meet a minimum sales quota over a four-month period. Consultants earn a commission on sales and also receive a bonus when sales reach a certain amount each month. Bonuses include gifts, trips and even all-expenses-paid vehicles depending on the amount of sales. Additionally, a consultant who registers a minimum of three new consultants and meets individual and group sales quotas gains managerial status and receives a portion of the group's commission sales. Registering new consultants and managing a sales group is an option and is not required to maintain active status as a Tupperware consultant.
