How to Earn Cash as a Personal Shopper

Have you signed up to become a Personal Shopper with Shop Your Way? If not, you should! It’s an opportunity for you to earn some extra income on the side and have fun at the same time! You get paid when you reach the $20 threshold and earn 1% commission on all your clients purchases. Once you have 20 clients, you will receive an additional 1% commission as long as your client uses their Shop Your Way membership number when making their purchase. If you are located in the United States, then all you have to do is register as a Personal Shopper and you can begin!

How To Sign Up Clients

You know more people than you think you do! Or least that has been my experience. Not only can you approach your friends and family to be a client of yours, but you can also reach out to people you know via Social Media. There’s four ways you can send invites in your Shop Your Way account: Facebook, Gmail, Yahoo or manually entering their email addresses. Another suggestion I can make is to send some tweets out to your Twitter followers if you are on Twitter. If you have a blog, write a blog post about the program and have some of your readers sign up as clients.

How to Earn Cash with the Personal Shopper Program

You will start out earning a 1% commission on your client’s purchases. Once you have 20 clients, you will earn an additional 1% on their purchases as long as they use their Shop Your Way membership number for their purchases online or in the store.

I’m a visual person so I wanted to show you a few examples of how it will work.

This is the income based on a Personal Shopper earning 1% commission:

And here’s an example of a Personal Shopper who is over the 20 client threshold and earns a 2% commission on purchases:

Once you have clients, you can share with products with them that you think they will like to help them make purchasing decisions. You can also create personalized catalogs just for them featuring products you have handpicked that cater to their preferences.  It’s just a matter of finding out what they are looking for and picking products that are a good fit.

For example, Halloween is coming up next month so if you have a client who is a parent you could create a Halloween catalog just for them with costumes, decoration, etc. If they have all girls, you would select a few costumes for girls to add to their catalog.

If I were to make a Halloween catalogue for my friend who has a 5 year old girl, these would be a few products I would I pick:

Rubies Costume Company Pumpkin Spice Kids Costume

Dress Up America Goldilocks Fairytale Children’s Costume

Dress Up America Deluxe Sailor Girl Children’s Costume Set

Then I would select some Halloween decor:

Totally Ghoul 9in Carved Lighted Pumpkin – White Scary Face

 Totally Ghoul 16in. Large Skull With Multicolor LED Lights

You get the idea! Its easy to do when you add the Shop Your Way Bookmarklet to your toolbar and then visit the Sears site and start picking products for the catalog of your specific client.

Sign up today as a Personal Shopper with Shop Your Way and take advantage of this great opportunity to earn some extra cash!
