COMMISSIONS IN 2019
To empower and reward our Consultant community for its efforts, Beautycounter paid over $120 million USD in Commissions in the United States and Canada in 2019.
The total amount of Commissions that a Consultant earns depends on many factors, including the amount of time he or she dedicates to Beautycounter.
Consultants determine when and how much they wish to work. Many of our Consultants choose to spend a few hours a week with Beautycounter, while others have made it a full-time focus. As a result, the amount of Commissions earned can vary significantly. In general, those who dedicate the most time and effort to Beautycounter have the potential to earn the most income.

IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT EARNING COMMISSIONS& REWARDS
Beautycounter and/or any of our independent Consultants do not guarantee any level of income. Each Consultant’s success in earning Commissions will depend on his or her efforts, abilities, and circumstances. Financial success with Beautycounter requires dedication and diligent effort. In addition, success requires demonstrated skill in selling and, if a Consultant chooses to do so, leading a team of other Consultants. Those considering becoming Consultants should carefully consider their unique circumstances to set any expectation of Commissions that may be earned, rather than relying upon testimonials of others or hypothetical examples.
** Consultants earn 25% on the Personal Volume of all products sold to Clients and/or Members. They may also earn up to 10% Personal Sales Bonus when they sell over 3,000 Personal Volume in a monthly Commission period. Combined, these bonuses may pay up to 35% on the Personal Volume of a Consultant’s sales.
