Retail Customer Vs Wholesale Member

Retail Customer Vs Wholesale Member

Wes here, and today I wanted to answer a question that has been coming up recently.   You've decided it's time, and you're ready to start your Young Living journey. Congratulations! However, as you begin the enrollment process you are asked to make a choice; Wholesale Member or Retail Customer. We are going to break down the difference between these two accounts and help you decide which is the best option for you and your family. It is my hope that after comparing these two options, you recognize the amazing value of being a Wholesale Member.

Retail Customer:

  • Purchase products at full retail pricing: Although this may be a great way to try a few products, paying the full retail price can add up quickly. (24% more than Wholesale)
  • May not participate in the Young Living Compensation Plan:  If you decide to tell a friend or family member about Young Living, unfortunately, as a Retail Customer you will not receive the generous kickbacks Young Living offers to their Wholesale Members.
  • No opportunity to earn free oils: A Retail Customer is not allowed to participate in the Essential Rewards program to earn points on purchases to be used toward free products.
  • No reduced shipping fees: As a Retail Customer you are not eligible for reduced shipping cost offered through the Essential Rewards Program.

Wholesale Member:

  • Start your Young Living journey with the Premium Starter Kit: Get 10 Young Living Essential Oils, including a bonus 11th oil, and a beautiful ultrasonic essential oil diffuser for nearly half price. This is the best value in all of Young Living.
  • Receive 24% off retail pricing: As a Wholesale Member, you will receive 24% off of retail pricing for life.
  • Earn points through the Essential Reward Program: Eligible to participate in Essential Rewards and earn points towards free products (to see our breakdown of a HUGE Essential rewards order click here). You will also receive a bonus gift for being on Essential Rewards for a consecutive 3, 6, 9, and 12 months, along with monthly Essential Rewards exclusive promotions.
  • Reduced Shipping: Young Living offers reduced shipping cost on Essential Rewards orders.
  • Eligible to participate in the Young Living Income Opportunity: Although it is not required to participate in the income opportunity, if you would like to share your love of Young Living with friends and family, Young Living will thank you through the amazing Young Living Compensation Plan.
