Sales Commission / Residual Income Opportunity
SALES COMMISSION / RESIDUAL INCOME OPPORTUNITY FOR SAFETY PROFESSIONALS
At All Safety Products, we are looking for some motivated safety consultants or companies with customers who purchase industrial safety products for a mutually beneficial relationship. We will pay you a residual commission of 5% on all safety product purchases your customer makes on www.allsafetyproducts.com website. In addition, we supply you a code that allows your customer to receive a 10% discount on their future purchases each time they order.
Below is a Screenshot of report you get the next month showing the gross sales amount. If there is a discount applied, we do pay you on the amount after discount is applied per item.
THE WAY IT WORKS
(1) You will need to fill out a W-9 (Click Here for Fillable W-9 Form) since we need to pay you as a 1099 contractor. You're responsible for ensuring your information is reported to the IRS for any commissions you are paid on. We report any payment payouts we make to you to the IRS. You can fax this to us at the number listed on the form. Or you can call us at 1-877-208-3109, and press option 5 for the National Sales Manager and ask about our Sales Commission Opportunity.
(2) We assign you a discount code unique to you that your customer types in the discount code field when they place an order with us. This is a good way to track orders the customer places that you get credit and paid on, while offering your customer a discount of 10% for ordering. You can use your discount code for your other customers as well.
(3) You receive a monthly report that shows the items ordered with your sales code. In the event, that the customer forgets to enter the discount code, we also set this up in our accounting program so you still get paid on it each month, regardless of whether the customer enters the code.
(4) We pay out commissions on the first week of the next month or after we collect payment from customers for their purchases. This way, we ensure we have the funds to pay you on your well-deserved commission.
COMMON QUESTIONS (FAQ FORMAT)
Question 1: Do I need to be a U.S. Citizen?
Answer: No, although on the W-9 form (Click Here for Fillable W-9 Form) you will need to provide a TIN number supplied by the IRS. A U.S. Citizen will need to supply a EIN or SSN number. (See Page 3 on the W-9 Form for instructions). We do require that you supply us a U.S. address to mail checks to. Also, we request that you cash checks within 90 days. Our accounting department appreciates this since we don't like having checks with outstanding balances. We may also withhold check payments if we notice that checks are not being cashed in a timely manner. After you settle this with us, we will promptly pay you any withheld payments.
Question 2: Why is your commission sales / residual income better than other affiliate programs out there?
Answer: It’s less complicated to get started right away with us. We just need a W-9 form (Click Here for Fillable W-9 Form) filled out with the information requested above. We also will continue to pay you as long as your customer continues to order from us. The advantage to you is that you put forth very little effort and you can make a substantial amount of money each month by receiving a residual revenue stream each month. The advantage to us is that this is more effective in obtaining repeat business while having customers receive a personal touch and service from you. Due to our business being primarily an Internet-based business with only a limited local reach, we aren’t able to touch customers with personal service and care. Also with our provided detailed report, you can do effective marketing follow up for your customers, since you will know the date your customer ordered, their contact info, the items ordered, the amount ordered, your commission total, Internet order ID, our assigned Invoice number, etc.
Question 3: Will I be paid if our customer contacts you directly by phone or faxes you a purchase order instead of ordering on the website with our unique discount code?
Answer: Absolutely. As mentioned earlier, since your customer is already set up in our accounting system with your unique discount code (known as a rep code), we mail you a detailed report for you each month (see sample report above) with the payment check. So you get paid regardless of whether your customer contacts us directly or orders on the www.allsafetyproducts.com website. It would be recommended for you to encourage your customer to use the unique discount code provided you and order on our website so they receive the 10% discount. They do not receive the discount automatically if order is not placed on the website.
Question 4: What if I run into a customer who has ordered from you before or is currently ordering from you? Will I be able get paid commission on this customer as well?
Answer: This is no problem and yes, you will be paid. We only need to make a minor change in our accounting system and assign you a unique discount code to ensure you get paid and credit for orders placed. We may need to perform some verifications just to make sure this offer doesn’t get misused or trust violated. As mentioned earlier, due to our business being primarily an Internet-based business with only a limited local reach, we aren’t able to touch customers with personal service and care as you can. We save money on advertising and marketing costs as well as obtain a higher number of repeat customers. It is highly recommended for you to encourage your customer to use the unique discount code provided you and place their orders on the www.allsafetyproducts.com website so they receive the 10% discount. They do not receive the discount automatically if order is not placed on the website. You still get paid regardless.
Question 5: I have several potential customers. However all are located in the Eastern States. Is this workable?
Answer: Yes, we have access to distribution centers across the country for our products and try to pull inventory from the closest distribution center to your customer. Although we can't promise products will always ship from a distribution center closest to your customer, if this is a regular purchase each month from a customer, we can set up stock at a certain location to meet MRO requirements. We have several freight companies that we try to negotiate the best freight rates for you. Our goal is to make money on products, not freight!
