Below are some of the more commonly asked questions posed by potential Consultants. If you have additional questions, please contact us.
  • What does Paperly’s $19 Discount Buyer’s Starter Kit allow a Consultant to do?
    • A Discount Buyer places her/his order through the Virtual Office just like any other Paperly Consultant
    • A Discount Buyer can place orders for herself/himself as well as for friends, family members and others. They would earn a commission based on Paperly’s Commission and Career Plan
    • A Discount Buyer can take full advantage of all of Paperly’s promotions, product specials, Fast Start Rewards, etc.
    • At anytime, a Discount Buyer can expand their Paperly business by ordering more catalogs, samples or subscribing to a MyPaperly website or a “Paperly Clips” e-newsletter. She/he would place such orders through her/his Virtual Office just like any other Paperly Consultant.
    • A Discount Buyer has the same active requirement as any other Paperly Consultant (i.e. $200 during a rolling quarter); however, since she/he presumably will not be building a team (i.e. no downline commissions), the active requirement is irrelevant. Like all Consultants, a Discount Buyer always earns commissions on personal sales.
  • What do I need to do to get started as a Paperly Consultant? It’s very easy to get started. Simply complete the online application. That’s it! You will then be granted instant access to your personal Paperly website as well as your Virtual Office, full of training materials, reference documents and marketing materials. You can see a demo of a personal website at www.MyPaperly.com/paperly.
  • As a Paperly Consultant, what commission can I earn? Commissions on personal sales range from 20-26%, plus an additional 4-12% bonus based on monthly sales. Commissions are calculated using Paperly’s retail price before shipping & sales tax. Learn more at Paperly’s Commission & Career Plan.
  • Is Paperly a member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA)? Yes, after a yearlong, exhaustive review of Paperly’s policies and procedures, Paperly became a full-fledged member of the DSA in March 2010 and has retained its membership every year since. We feel it further validates Paperly as the leading direct seller of personalized stationery and gifts.
  • Do I receive a discount on any products I buy for myself? Yes, assuming you are a “personalization junkie” like us and you want to purchase products for yourself or as a gift for your family and loved ones, you can purchase Paperly products at up to 26% below Paperly’s retail price.
  • Do all Paperly sales need to occur at an in-home party? Not at all. We never anticipated all of a Consultant’s sales to occur at a party. Instead, we believe a significant number of sales will occur from friends and family via Paperly’s catalogs and website. We also suspect Consultants will do a lot of one-to-one selling. We took great care creating catalogs that can easily be toted by Consultants to school, coffee shops, playgroups, etc… wherever a Consultant can conveniently meet a friend and show Paperly’s products.
  • When does Paperly pay my commissions? Paperly pays commissions via direct deposit 2x per month.
  • How long has Paperly been in business? Although we’ve been in the stationery business since 2000, Paperly is a relatively new incarnation. We officially launched in 2007 and have been growing quickly ever since. Read more about Paperly’s story.
  • Is there already a Paperly Consultant in my ZIP code? Paperly does not offer exclusive territories. Feel free to contact us to learn how many Consultants may be in your immediate area.
  • How much does it cost to become a Consultant? The only financial commitment to become a Paperly Consultant is to purchase a Starter Kit. The one-time fee is either $19 or $99.
  • If I need to purchase additional materials, what’s the cost? Most Consultants never reach for their wallet when they need to purchase additional catalogs or other business supplies. Instead, they use Paperly Dollars that they’ve earned by selling Paperly products. In fact, you can earn hundreds of Paperly Dollars within your first 90 days as a Paperly Consultant through our Fast Start Rewards program.
  • How often does Paperly release new catalogs? Paperly releases new catalogs 2x per year: a Spring catalog and a Fall catalog. In addition, we offer Holiday mini catalog that has become a big hit with our customers!
  • Can a Consultant have her own website? Yes! Paperly enables its Consultants to have their own personal, Paperly website. You can see a demo at www.MyPaperly.com/paperly.
