To begin selling Tupperware, register with the company, and purchase a business kit. Register and purchase the kit on Tupperware's website or in person with a Tupperware consultant. Business kits purchased online must be paid in full. Business kits purchased from a consultant are eligible for an installment payment plan.
The business kit contains the initial set of Tupperware products and business tools a consultant needs for demonstrations. Tupperware's Confident Start program allows new consultants to earn additional products and tools by reaching sales goals. All new consultants are automatically enrolled in Confident Start after the first sale or after 31 days as a consultant, whichever comes first.
Tupperware consultants receive a commission on all products sold. This commission varies, but can be up to 35 percent of the purchase price. Tupperware provides training and a flexible schedule to all consultants and offers prizes and sales incentives to top performers.
Tupperware consultants sell products through parties and home demonstrations. At these parties, consultants meet with friends, family and interested potential customers. The consultant demonstrates quick recipes to show off the capabilities of Tupperware products. Tupperware has used this marketing model since 1950, but Tupperware products are now sold in stores as well as at private parties.
