HOME-BASED DECORLICIOUS STOCKIST

Are you looking for a unique, rewarding and profitable opportunity to run a business from home?
Decorlicious is urgently looking for home-based stockists throughout South Africa and neighbouring African countries to stock our wide selection of dresses, lingerie and accessories so that customers have a comfortable and private fitting experience.

The concept is simple and effective - as well as tried and tested!

To answer many of your frequently asked questions - please refer to the following...

FAQ

Why would I want to work from home?
• Significantly less overheads, flexible hours since you will be working on an appointment basis.
• No traffic since you won't be travelling to a shop or office.
• Seeing clients at your home creates an air of exclusivity.
• Better stock control, less chance of theft and no staff problems.
• You have an opportunity to interact with clients on a more personal level thus creating a loyal customer base.

Why does Decorlicious need stockists?
Although our entire catalog is displayed on the website for customers to view and to order, 99% of customers are still reluctant to order from the website without first fitting or even seeing the quality of the garments.

What is required from the Stockist?
A once off start-up fee of R 10,000 (limited offer - usually R 15,000) which pays for your first batch of dresses (and lingerie) catalogs, brochures and promotional material. No monthly fees, no advertising fees, no catch!!!

Why become a Decorlicious Stockist?
• Make money part-time or full-time selling Decorlicious evening wear and bridal gowns.
• Enjoy wholesale pricing and very good profits (average GP% is currently at 47%). Markup is calculated at 100%.
• Work from home using a specially developed Decorlicious Home-Based Business Operating Manual.
• Have access to various marketing materials at very good bulk prices (brochures, leaflets, catalogs, banners, packaging etc.).
• Get weekly email updates of orders, stock, new styles, styles on sale, and discontinued styles.
• Support and advice from a growing network of experienced Decorlicious Stockists.
• Get listed as a Decorlicious Stockist on our website.
• Decorlicious is listed on major search engines, including Google. We also have a Facebook page.

As a Stockist am I allocated an area?
No - although we do suggest you concentrate your efforts in the area in which you live, since customers generally don't like to travel too far for fittings. Your details will be displayed on the website so customers will automatically contact the stockist closest to where they live.

As a Decorlicious Stockist am I expected to only stock the Decorlicious brand of dresses, lingerie etc?
No - you can stock whatever products you like. We won't force you to buy exclusively from us but we are sure you will become a loyal customer.

Is a Decorlicious Stockist allowed to rent out Decorlicious dresses?
Yes. How you run your business as a Decorlicious stockist is entirely up to you. You will be supplied with many suggestions and guidelines in our Business Operating Manual.

I am very interested. What is the next step?
Great - well done on your decision!
Decorlicious will email an invoice for the one-time setup cost of R 10,000 (limited offer - usually R 15,000).
Also included will be a Decorlicious Stockist Agreement.
The agreement must be signed and emailed back with the proof of payment for the R 10,000 setup cost.

Hi,

She is based in Polokwane as well in an area called Faunapark. She is the only one in Limpopo so customers from everywhere - Phalaborwa, Tzaneen etc. go to her. Pity you aren't in one of those areas. Do you work and live in Polokwane?

Hi,

Apologies - I was sure I answered? Perhaps the message did not go through? The nearest stockist would be a lady based in Krugersdorp. There are 1 or 2 of my stockists that do their own alterations but by far the majority just refer customers to a nearby seamstress in the area. We currently work on a 100% mark-up on average and the gross profit ranges from 45% to 50% so profits are very good. No monthly fees, no royalty fees, no minimum purchases. A once off setup fee for stock, catalogs etc. and then after that you buy at wholesale prices when you need to. You have your own payments terms but we will give suggestions and guide you. Does this help?

Hi,

Thanks for your interest. Bid or Buy does not allow sellers to give their email or website addresses. If you search for Decorlicious on Google or on Facebook you will find us. Please don't contact me directly. We must correspond through Bid or Buy and if you do decide to go ahead then you must also do the purchase through Bid or Buy.

You can operate this business from any location but when customers want to fit the dresses then it must be in a location which is safe and comfortable. Most of my stockists work from their house and those that work arrange customer fittings on weekends or after hours.
