What to Expect

Home parties, one-on-one consultations, you name it – with the thousands of direct selling products and services available today, there are so many ways to shop. The key to enjoying your shopping experience is to work with knowledgeable and friendly consultants who can tell you about products or services, answer any questions, and let you and your friends peruse the items on display or in catalogs that offer a wider selection. You’re not obligated to buy, of course, but chances are you’ll walk out with something you’ll really enjoy.

One way to get the most out of your shopping experience is to ensure that the company you’re purchasing from is a member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA). DSA is the national trade group that represents companies involved in direct selling. As part of membership, companies are required to abide by a strict Code of Ethics that’s designed to protect consumers and consultants from unethical business practices and consumer service. If the company you’re interested in is not a DSA member it’s even more important that you check out the company and its policies and procedures before doing business with them.

From there, the rest is up to you. You can chose from home shopping parties, one-on-one consultations, online, phone orders and a number of other ways to purchase products and services.
