I put together this post around becoming a Beautycounter Consultant FAQ because soon after I published My Beautycounter Story, people started purchasing the product, and once they realized how incredible it is, reached out asking, “Soooooo……I’m thinking of joining your Beautycounter mission. Can you tell me more about joining as a consultant?”
I’ve sent so many emails already, and to save time plus have all the information in one place, I decided to put together this Becoming a Beautycounter Consultant FAQ.

Is there a “start-up” fee?
It’s $85 to start. This fee covers one year of your PWS (personal website – enables people to order from you online, seamlessly, vs. having to contact you to place an order for them), online tracking dashboard, and training materials.
After 1 year, you pay a $50 fee to continue with the online PWS. If you don’t renew, you still get your tracking dashboard and you can still place orders FOR people – you just lose access to that beautiful, elegant, awesome, easy PWS system that basically allows you to refer sales with the Beautycounter equivalent of an affiliate link.
Beautycounter does offer big consultant kits when you sign up at a big discount. But that’s NOT a required purchase. I didn’t purchase it, but in hindsight, I wish I would have. (I need all the things because I’m obsessed now!)
How is Beautycounter different from an MLM?
To each his own, but I’ve learned a million and five things about building online communities and having a comfortable financial life these past several years and none of those learnings have been about any sort of MLM. (But I am a total Mompreneur at heart, and you can be, too…..)
Is there a monthly sales quota?
However, if you don’t make $1200 in sales (your purchases + any sales referred) within 6 months, they deactivate your consultant status. It’s not a punishment or anything, and I wouldn’t call it a quota since you still get paid no matter what. Really, it’s just their way of ensuring that people actually “work their business” vs. just becoming a consultant for the 25% discount. $1200 in 6 months is $200 per month. It’s nothing.
How do I make money as a consultant?
There are a few extra layers built in to the comp plan – things like rank, which earns you extra % points on your downline (an incentive assuming you’re spending time coaching your team vs. making your own sales) and also up to 10% bonus on your own sales as your volume grows (an incentive for people who are rocking their own businesses vs. coaching a team).
Are there autoship or purchase requirements?
What kind of training does Beautycounter provide?
What else can you do with the company?
You can be a part of something bigger than selling incredible products and networking with amazing people. There’s the political advocacy for more health-protective laws at the state and federal level.
What’s your favorite part of the mission?

Honestly? For me, it all came down to how the products are made and, more importantly, what they are not made with (there is no SLS, SLES or ALS in any of Beautycounter’s products). The Never List and Beautycounter’s commitment to it fit like a glove with my overall health and wellness mission and goals for making skin and body care products as much a focus and priority as food has been.
How can I get started?
You’ll pay your $85, decide if you want any of the signup kits, and you’re ready to generate your unique tracking links within a few hours. From there, I get you plugged into our team resources, we keep in touch as much as you need as you onboard (yay! Emails between you and me all the time!), and you’re on your way.
Where can I learn more about the company, founders, products, and mission?
