We bet you have some questions about the enrolling process…here we will try to address those questions that we receive most often so that when you go to enroll, it is seamless!
1. If I enroll as a Member, does that mean “distributor?”
Young Living’s term for “Independent Distributor” is MEMBER so yes; a MEMBER is an “Independent Distributor” who receives all the perks of wholesale pricing as discussed on the page “Member vs Retail.”
2. If I enroll as a Member, does that mean I HAVE to sell oils?
The easy answer is no, but it’s not the best answer! What we find many times is that after using the oils, people naturally end up sharing about Young Living Essential Oils. It happens so naturally that we hardly know we do it! Countless times we are told, “I really want to receive wholesale pricing but I don’t want to sell anything.” Well, we can respect that and we will never, ever push you to share the oils. Should you want to share the oils or host a class or even better, jump in to share the oils to replace part-time or full-time incomes, we can help you there too. Your choice, always!
3. When I go to enroll as a Member, why does it ask me for my social security number?
The social security number is only required because as Members we are technically “Independent Distributors” who have the opportunity to earn commissions. If a Member earns over $600 in a year, Young Living must send a 1099. Once the social security number has been entered into Young Living’s system, it goes directly to Young Living’s tax department and is no longer accessible on the web or from your virtual office. A customer does not have the ability to earn commissions and therefore there is no need for a social security number. A Retail Customer will pay retail, 24% above wholesale pricing though. Few choose this option due to the savings realized!
