Hi there! Welcome! If this is your first time at bottlesoup, thanks for joining us. In this article, we’re going to discuss selling Scentsy. Please note that these articles are the opinion of the author and should not be taken in place of professional legal or professional financial advice.
Scentsy is a direct sales company that markets “wickless candles” or wax warmers, in addition to other home fragrance products. Like many other direct sales companies, one of the primary ways the company earns money is buy recruiting consultants to join Scentsy.
A quick search of #Scentsy on Twitter will give you an idea. Here are a couple tweets:
So who’s selling Scentsy? Mostly women with children. This is typical of many direct sales companies, which are known to recruit stay at home moms.
What’s so bad about giving SAHMs an opportunity to earn an income, you ask? Well, nothing is bad about that. In fact, that sounds awesome. But when we dig deeper into the actual feasibility of the opportunity, that’s where things get sad.
How Much Money Do You Make As a Scentsy Consultant?
You can make anywhere from a few hundred dollars a year up to six figures a year selling Scentsy warmers, bars and other Scentsy products. However….the amount you make depends on the following factors:
Ultimately the amount that you can earn depends on you. You can earn a little extra income or make a career out of a Scentsy business depending on what your personal goals are. Personally, I work my business full-time and earn a substantial income that allows me to be home with my children and be my own boss. There is absolutely nothing wrong with joining to simply save a little money fulfilling your Scentsy addiction. Others become a consultant with the goal of working from home fulltime, being their own boss and making A LOT of cash.

How Can I Calculate My Scentsy Commission This Month?
Our team quite often ask how they can calculate their commission payment for this month so we thought it would be really good to put together a Scentsy commission calculator.
Simply select the rank for which you are being paid for the month. Please remember your rank and your title are different. It may be that your title is a Star Consultant, but to be paid as a Star Consultant, you must have achieved all the requirements for that title every month to be paid at that level.
Next, select the peg rate applicable to your country.
Peg Rate in your country:
Australia peg rate is 1.54 Austria peg rate is 1.08 Canada peg rate is 1.32 France peg rate is 1.29 Germany peg rate is 1.19 Ireland peg rate is 1.19 Mexico peg rate is 21.6 New Zealand peg rate is 1.6 Netherlands Peg rate is 1.19 Spain peg rate is 1.19 United Kingdom peg rate is 1.01 USA peg rate is 1
After that, via your workstation, enter the totals for the month under each header and then the commission calculator will calculate the commission you have earned for the month. Please note, this is a calculator that we, as consultants, have produced and not Scentsy themselves, so it is not 100% accurate, for example, if you have a team in other regions this calculator will not take the current currency conversion rate or the peg rate for that country. But will give you a general idea of your earnings.
The commissions are paid worldwide by Scentsy on the 10th of every month for the previous month’s sales.
GWV (Group Wholesale Volume) PRV (Personal Retail Volume)
GWV is 75% of PRV. So simply multiply PRV X 0.75 to get your GWV value.
To calculate the retail price from PRV, multiply PRV by the PEG rate and add VAT rounded to the nearest pound. These calculations serve as guides only since orders may include half-priced items, Host Rewards, or business tools which do not accumulate PRV.
Example of a Etched Core Scentsy Warmer at the current rate:
30 PRV x 1.01 PEG rate = £30.30 + £6.06 VAT = £36.36 = rounded to £36 retail
|PRV||PEG RATE||VAT RATE||RETAIL|
Scentsy offers one of the most generous compensation plans in the industry. You can earn between 20% to 25% commission on your sales and up to 9% royalties from your downline. There is no obligation to recruit consultants and build a downline, you are in control of your earnings. If you join my Scentsy team, I will not only help you start your Scentsy business, I will support and mentor you to achieve your goals. We are building a fantastic team and look forward to expanding this.
