Paparazzi Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Paparazzi Accessories web site free or do I have to pay for it?
When you become a consultant, you get a FREE replicated web site with your photo and information and a custom link you can give to your customers. For instance, mine is paparazziaccessories.com/heidilusk. Customers can shop and you will get the commission. You can also set up parties and send a custom link to those. In addition, you can send potential consultants to your site for more information and to join under you. My direct link to join or get more info is: paparazziaccessories.com/join/heidilusk.
Can I order one of something or do I have to order them in packs of 4 or 5?
You can order just one of any item. You don't have to order them in bulk. If you were a consultant several years ago you may remember that there used to be a minimum but no more minimums!
How often does Paparazzi add new inventory?
Paparazzi adds new inventory every week day (Monday through Friday). The time varies but they do have a brand new sign up feature so they can notify you when new inventory has been added. This means there is an amazing variety we can offer our customers and that our customers keep coming back because our products are always changing! It's a huge plus for a direct sales business and one of the reasons I chose Paparazzi.
What are Paparazzi Blockbusters?
Although Paparazzi's inventory does change almost every day, they do have a collection of about 50 pieces that are staples that you can order most any time (subject to availability).
How do I start selling Paparazzi?
You can join Paparazzi and become a consultant through their website - paparazziaccessories.com/join/heidilusk (would love to have you on my team) or by calling their toll-free number 855.697.2727 (if you'd like to join my team, tell them you are joining under Heidi Lusk and my consultant number is #40419).
Where do I find training info for Paparazzi Accessories?
Once you join, log in to your back office and click on "resources". There are lots of great documents there that will help you. That's also where you will find photography for Blockbusters and Zi Collection, approved Paparazzi logos and more.
In addition, my team (Team Savvy) has provided additional videos, downloadable items, tutorials on displays and more in the Consultant Resources section of this site. Our team also has a "Big Bucks Boot Camp" training that we provide a few times a year in our Facebook group (must be a team member to access this). We'd love to have you join our team!
Do I have to file sales taxes?
Thankfully, no! Paparazzi actually charges us upfront for our sales tax (ie we buy the item for $2.75 but they charge us tax on the retail price of $5.00). They file our sales tax each year in our state so we do not have to. Its up to you whether you charge your customers tax to recoup the taxes you pre-paid. Some people do and some don't.
Do I have to go LIVE on Facebook?
Of course not! There are many ways you can sell Paparazzi. Home parties, work parties, basket parties, Facebook album parties, vendor events, in the line at the grocery store (bling bags are awesome). Going Live definitely was a game changer for me in my business but there are many consultants who do well and don't go LIVE so it's completely up to you.
Do I have to sell a quota each month?
NOPE! No quotas. You could go 3 months and sell nothing and pick it back up if you want. But I wouldn't recommend it. You do have to buy at least 25 pieces a month to be considered ACTIVE and be found in the search on the Paparazzi website. I get customers and potential consultants from that search so I always stay active even if its a slower month.
Is there an auto-ship program that I have to subscribe to?
No! Paparazzi does offer an optional auto-ship program called Fashion Fix but it's actually so popular there is a waiting list to get on it! In other words, you don't HAVE to subscribe to it, but you will WANT TO! :)
Can I sell Paparazzi Accessories in my brick and mortar store?
Yes, as long as Paparazzi Accessories are the only line of jewelry you carry, you are allowed to sell them in your store.
Can I sell Paparazzi Accessories at a fair, festival or event?
Yes! Paparazzi only allows one consultant per event so do ask to make sure that another consultant hasn't already registered to have a booth.
