Questions? We're here for you.
Contact us or your Ambassador if you have questions about becoming an Ambassador!
We’ve answered some common questions below.
Why do you use a direct sales business model?
We believe business can change the world. We are passionate about creating meaningful opportunity in communities across the United States and across the globe. Our business model focuses on empowering entrepreneurs to launch and grow businesses in both the United States and around the world.
We partner with artisan entrepreneurs in the developing world, enabling them to grow their businesses sustainably and create dignified jobs in vulnerable communities. In the United States, we invite people to become Ambassadors: social entrepreneurs who earn an income by selling Noonday Collection products at Trunk Shows and online.
By selling Noonday Collection products through a community of Ambassadors, we are creating a fast growing market for artisan products. In just four years, Noonday Collection has become the largest and fastest growing fair trade jewelry business in the world – and this is because of our Ambassadors! In other words, we use a direct sales business model because it allows us to make a bigger impact in the United States and around the world.
How much do I need to maintain in sales each
month to keep my active commission status?
You will need to have ongoing Trunk Shows to keep momentum with your business. The minimum requirement is at least $500 in commissionable sales over a three-month rolling period to keep your active status. We count your start date as the day you complete the set-up process.
Will I need to purchase additional marketing
materials such as catalogs, order forms and
With your initial Starter Collection, you will receive the marketing materials you’ll need to get started. You will also need to order additional materials as needed. When you join, we will provide you with a digital marketing kit designed to help you launch your business. This kit includes templates for business cards that you can have printed online or through a local printer. These seasonal marketing kits mean you can spend less time creating marketing materials and more time using them to grow your business!
How do I qualify for a trip to visit Noonday’s
We love creating a connection between Ambassadors and Artisans around the world. We invite selected Artisans to come to Shine, our annual conference, to share their stories with our community. In addition, Ambassadors who meet sales goals that we announce seasonally can qualify for a group trip to visit particular Artisan groups.
Do I receive commission for orders placed on my
personal Noonday website that are not associated
with a Trunk Show?
Yes! Each month you get paid commission on all purchases made through your website or with your name chosen as the Ambassador, regardless of whether or not they are associated with a Trunk Show. Likewise, when you are having a Trunk Show, you can invite guests who cannot attend the show in person to shop online.
Are there conferences that Ambassadors are
required to attend?
We host an annual Ambassador Conference near our Home Office in Austin, Texas. This conference is typically held in January. Attendance is not mandatory; however, it is a great chance to learn how to grow your business and be inspired by other Ambassadors, so we encourage you to attend if you can!
Are Trunk Show orders shipped to each customer
or am I responsible for delivering product?
All Trunk Show orders ship directly to each customer.
