Whenever someone signs up for an account with Young Living, there are two different options: a Retail Customer, and a Wholesale Member.
If you sign up as a Retail Customer, then you will pay 24% more than wholesale members for each of your orders. Sometimes people will sign up as a retail customer just to see what products are available, but there’s no need to do that. Just click on this link here and then click on “Product Line” to see all of the products that Young Living offers.
Another reason that someone might want to become a retail customer is that they have concerns about putting in their Social Security Number when they sign up. I completely understand that hesitation. The purpose of having your social security number, like with any job, is for IRS purposes so that any income you make through Young Living can be tracked. If you feel uncomfortable about giving your Social Security Number, then you can get around this by applying for an EIN number through the IRS website here. The number that you receive will be tied to your SSN through the IRS, but you will not have to enter your SSN on the Young Living website.
If you want to get a 24% discount on everything that you buy, then you’ll want to become a Wholesale Member. You can select this option when you first sign up, or you can change to a wholesale member after you’re a retail customer.
If you’re a retail customer and you would like to switch to a wholesale membership (and get the awesome deal on a starter kit that you get with a wholesale membership) then you’ll need to give customer service a call at 1-800-371-3515 and let them know that you want to switch. They will ask you for your PIN number that you created when you set up your original account (this is so that they know that you are actually the one who wants to change your account).
Check out how great of a deal the starter kit is!! (You can only get this package price when you first sign up… even wholesale members don’t get this big of a discount after their initial kit!)
While the $150 starter kit is the best deal, you can also get a Wholesale Membership with a small $40 kit.
