I'm also wondering if anyone knows where/how to buy products in bulk. Anyone who has been successfully doing this I would love to hear about how much you work, how much you make, how the experience has been for you, and anything else you want to share. It seems like it could be really fun and maybe a good source of income (I hope). I think it qualifies as WAH. Sorry if it doesn't.

A close friend of mine is a Passion Parties rep. She is doing awesome and apparently is one of the top 10 or so at sales in the country. I know she would love to talk to you. Her website is www.alifetimeofpassion.com and her email is alifetimeofpassion@ gmail.

Good luck! I'd love to do it...she has so much fun, but I am the worlds worst salesperson:)

You know, the Passion Parties is kind of one of those pyramid-type businesses. I also don't like how you have to pay S & H + tax and wait for your item(s) in the mail that doesn't even come with batteries. There are things I like about the company but I'm wondering if there are any other companies? I like the pleasure parties that have everything available (including batteries for sale) right then and there. And tax is already included. I also didn't think that Passion Parties' reps make very good commission. You have to sell between $2,000-2,999.99 just to make $100. Is it just me or is that not so great?

 

Or is your friend not with Passion Parties, the corp.?

One more try. I'd really love to do something like this, but I want to make sure it would be worth it financially.

I have a friend that does Pure Romance. I don't know how much she makes, but it is significant in terms of monthly income. She stocks some products and orders others as needed. It is MLM but doesn't seem pushy about it--but maybe that's just her.

I am a pure romance consultant and can give you the skinny on this business.  It has worked out pretty good for my family and I.  Some months I make several thousand dollars for working part time.  No kids in childcare and socializing, money and a business for Mommy.  It's been a win-win here!  I would recommend it for people who want a second income or an evening job.joy.gif

 

Please check out the buying discounts and quality of the products before you buy into any company.  I hear LOTS of complaints from customers about the quality of what they receive from competitors companies. af.gif Feel free to contact me for more info- prbyjanet@gmail.com or

I do Temptations Parties and their profit margin for consultants is 50% of the item price! Not to mention that customers have access to ordering from Adam and Eve and Sinclairs (which Temptations consultants get 40% of the item price on!!) because Temptations is a subsidiary of Adam and Eve.

 

Some months are better than others, obviously. I've found the more time and effort I put into it, the more it pays off. The 50 Shades of Grey series and Magic Mike have been HUGE sales boosters, and Temptations actually has specific items for sale online and in their catalog relating to the 50 Shades books. My "supervisor" is always there to help out, lend a hand, get extra supplies from for my cash and carry kits...They have a Temptations University that is full of tutorials, classes, and teleconferences. I really love this company, and although it is a bit of a pyramid scheme, getting 50% of an item's sale price and fixing my own hours and schedule is SOOOO worth it

 

PM me if you want more info!!

Temptations parties is a pretty good one but my personal favorite is intimate expressions. 50% profits gpod selection and prices on products. A good hostess program as well. Some top reasons I like them best :
Shipping is available to consultant, hostess or customer so no time and money lost repackaging and shipping items to customers
no quotas to meet to stay active
No sales tax payments to be made. This was a biggie the resale certificate for my county had a $300 deposit to start a home business even as a party plan plus the paperwork for quarterly payments was just all too much for me
Great help and customer service with the company. I actually got ths president on the phone when I called!
logo is on consultant page. This is minor but was a nice convenience for ordering business materials.

There is a $29.95 fee each month with them but I found that a small thing considering what it cost me in shipping costs amd materials, taxes, etc with other companies. If u don't want the fee and don't mind the shipping hassle and taxes then I'd go ith temptations parties. They were good with great training. I just changed companies because of the convenience factor and tax stuff.

Honestly, I did this for awhile and I just ordered from sextoyclub.com.  They have great wholesale prices and can get pretty much anything through multiple distributors, so it's easier to have stock on hand and not have to wait for orders to come in.  It's a lot more work upfront though because you don't get ready to go brochures, etc.  But if you already have a network of people who are willing to host parties for you, it's easy.  One of my friends held monthly "alternative lifestyle" parties at a private estate, so it was a natural progression after meeting people who were be open to hosting those type of parties.  I actually met Dave -- owner of SexToy.com -- at one of those lifestyle parties.  Love U by Ducky Doo was just getting started around that time (the passion type party MLM company I'd considered going with) and it's since went under.

My friend just started her own company and I have hosted it a few times at my house. She tells me she LOVES IT. From what I understand she didn't want to do the pyramid scheme thing because she had already owned her own business prior to that and knowing what she did, figured she would just do it on her own so she wouldn't have anyone to answer to. I love her company. I have used Passion Parties before and the one thing that I love over their stuff is that my friend has ALL of the product on hand WITH BATTERIES!!! None of the girls ever have to wait for a product. They take it home with them right after the party. She also offers waaaay more that other companies. Plus she has her own website that she sells stuff on too. I'm sure if you wanted bulk she could hook you up with discounted pricing. Her website is www.ohmygasm.com she is also on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest under Oh My Gasm. OMG for short. winky.gif Her stuff is awesome and she sells a lot of the big name brands. Everything I have bought from her is AHHHHHmazing! Check her out. She is in California but I know she ships everywhere. Hope this helps!!!! blowkiss.gif

There are so many pleasure party companies you can just search for them. I did my research a few years ago when I decided to get into the biz. I decided to open my open my own company Pleasurable Treasures since I didn't want to be held to quotas, down lines & told who could attend/host parties, etc. But the down side to not going through a established company is that you have to do everything they would do for you for yourself...party leads, host incentives, advertising, paperwork, connecting with distributors/manufactures, website etc. There are a few sites you can buy bulk from sextoyclub.com & sextoydistributing.com. Also check out sextoycloseouts.com. I like having my own company so I can always have a larger variety of products to cater to different types of parties per request of host/hostesses. I've had some great fun & experiences as well as making money doing parties. You get to meet new people as well. Good luck to all.

I own Entice Me Soirees, Inc. and we are bpvery different from these other companies. All of out products are non-toxic and we really focus on education. Our Per person sale average is $220 and our average Soiree is over a $1000, on which you would make $250. www.enticeme.com
