In uncertain economic times people are finding success with Tupperware sales

Selling America’s favorite kitchen products offers schedule flexibility and much-needed cash for job seekers looking for a low-investment business opportunity

Online PR News – 14-February-2010 – – The economy has forced many families to seek new ways to bring in needed cash, but some families are finding financial success using a method that’s an old favorite – selling Tupperware.

It’s been named one of the “50 Best Products in America” by Forbes, and Fortune magazine credits Tupperware with being one of the best inventions of the 20th century. But the real proof is in the number of people buying, selling and making money with Tupperware.

Somewhere in the world a Tupperware party starts about every 2.2 seconds. Worldwide, more than 100 million people attend a Tupperware party each year. Tupperware is currently ranked #2 in home furnishing brands in the U.S. with sales of $1.8 billion in more than 100 countries.

Whether it’s just to make some extra cash to help make ends meet or to embark on a new career that takes little investment, many people are finding success with Tupperware. People like Melody Schafer. Schafer runs her Tupperware business while raising and homeschooling her two children.

“I think it’s important for people to know that they shouldn’t get discouraged about not being able to find a job during these times. There are other options, like starting your own home-based business, without the overhead that a typical brick and mortar business would have,” Schafer said.

For business-minded individuals wanting a home-business opportunity, Schafer suggests getting involved with Tupperware. Individuals earn a 25 percent commission on all sales, and of course hours are flexible with unlimited earning potential. The startup investment is minimal. Standard business kits start at $79 and include a selection of products, catalogs and supplies. And of course, there is also the opportunity to host online parties, where customers can order directly from the Tupperware associate’s website.

It’s not just individuals who are finding success with Tupperware. Through her Tupperware business Schafer offers nonprofits and community groups the opportunity to raise money through online fundraisers. Organizations get an online link to their own Tupperware sales site for 14 days. Customers can order online, Tupperware ships directly to the customer, and the organization receives a 40 percent commission.
