Norwex opened up to new consultants in New Zealand in April 2015, and has had exponential growth since then! Nonetheless, as in Australia, there are still so many many people in New Zealand who have yet to experience the awesomeness of Norwex, so if you are thinking of joining – you are very welcome!!
Norwex is a growing organisation and needs more people like you to spread the word, so whether you would like to join to run a full time business, to develop a new hobby that makes some income on the side, just because you love the products and want to share them, or somewhere in between, we have a place for you.
This is a bit of an FAQ on becoming a norwex consultant in New Zealand, and at the end I will link to documents you can download in PDF form if you would like to read more. You are also more than welcome to contact me and I will be happy to send you all the information you need and answer any questions you may have.
- How much does it cost to become a Norwex consultant?
- How much can you EARN as a Norwex consultant and are there any other benefits?
- Do you have to pay for catalogues?
- Can you earn your Starter Kit for Free?
- Can you purchase extra at sign up if you want to?
- Can you host your own party?
- Do you have to pay for host rewards?
- Is there training available?
- Can you sell Norwex through Facebook Parties?
- How do you become a Norwex consultant?
In New Zealand, you have the choice of two new consultant FreshStart Kits. The best one is valued at over $560 (include the MOP!) but has an upfront investment of only $11.45 (which is the shipping fee)!! Called the Party Starter Kit, this is the kit for you if you want do any number of parties, or want to get the mop for free! You have 90 days from joining to earn that kit and if you earn it within the first month (which you could easily do with only a single party each week!) you will get a $300 spending spree as well!
The smaller Basic Starter kit is only $79.95, with no more to pay EVER. Can you say #riskfree? And it is still valued at over $194, so even with this kit you could go out and do some demos right away if you want to.
You might choose this kit if you wanted to share Norwex with family and friends, but didn’t want to do parties, although many people in that situation still choose the party starter kit, because even if you don’t do the parties, you are still only charged $290 at the end of the 90 days! So pretty awesome value.

The simple answer is you can earn as much as you like, and YES there are LOADs of other benefits.
But let’s go with a more precise answer. 🙂
The norwex consultant discount is 32% of the retail price including GST, or put another way, your wholesale rate is the retail price minus 32%. This is the same for all consultants and starts with your very first order after joining.
An average party of around $600 would therefore earn you about $192. Not too bad for a night out partying. 🙂 So if you wanted to earn around $800/month, you would want to schedule in a party a week. Increase that to a couple of shifts a week, and you double your income. 🙂
When you help other people join Norwex and support them to develop their own business or even just a small customer base, you can also earn an extra commission to pay you for leadership activities. Norwex has extra training and even an extra conference just for leaders, and they LOVE to help you develop leadership skills.
The senior leaders in Norwex still do parties/demos, but their income from their leadership roles has surpassed their income from their parties.
Norwex consultants benefit from being part of a fabulous and growing community, of course, and in fact there are many testimonies from consultants about what an incredible difference Norwex has made in their life, from giving them lifelong friends, to personal and leadership development opportunities.
But are there more tangible benefits too? There certainly are. From free travel (I went to Hawaii on an all expenses paid (by Norwex) holiday in 2016!), to free Norwex products, to other monthly incentives, there are many different ways Norwex rewards us for sharing the love!
As an example, in the first half of November I earned a bluetooth speaker (a reward for doing some parties), a graphite Norwex bathroom scrub mitt (for putting in $500 in orders – something you could do either by running or hosting a party, or just by collecting up orders from family and friends), and about $300 worth of products for hosting my own catalogue party! (Just as an aside – Norwex pays for ALL the host gifts, consultants do not have to fund them at all!). Oh, and I earned around $900 through all that too 🙂
I also received 30 catalogues, some order pads, another $220 worth of products as a reward for the parties I did in October.
Norwex offers different consultant incentives every month, usually designed so that “casual” or non-partying consultants can earn something, part-time partiers can earn something, and full-time partier can earn something, including enough catalogues to keep them going until next month (and our catalogues only change once or twice a year, so if you don’t use them all in one month, that’s okay!).
As an example, here are the incentives that were available to consultants in January 2018 (click on the images to see them larger). And this is not even counting the ongoing annual incentive that includes a Mediterranean cruise, and a bunch of other rewards along the way!
Why yes you can! Of course, you can sign up for the Party Starter kit I mentioned above, and just pay the $11.45 shipping, but as well as that, whichever starter kit you sign up for, in your first three months with Norwex you can earn hundreds of dollars worth of free products, and finish with a $200 spending spree (or $300 if you achieve it all in 30 days – very doable!), just by doing some parties. AND you are earning an income while you do it! You can even host your own party (or a couple of parties) and get the host gifts AS WELL!
Here are the Fresh Start Rewards you can earn in your first 90 days with Norwex:
Again, yes you can! During the sign-up process you will have the option to purchase an AWESOME Starter Kit Builder pack at 40% off the retail price (3 different kits to choose from). And as a bonus, the products in the kit will count as “sales” for you in your start up month, just as though you’d paid retail price! So you can get a jump start on your Fresh Start rewards, and any other incentives available that month.
As an example, the largest kit (#3) has a full retail value of $1001.25, but you only pay $600.50. Some of the products in it are not “retail” product, eg catalogues and a product manual (the only time you will ever get a discount on them!), so they don’t count as “sales” but the Consultants Sub A value (which is RRP minus GST) on this kit is $812.17.
So with this kit you would have already achieved step 1 in your Fresh Start rewards be most of the way towards step 2! If you got the Party Starter kit as well, you would already be almost 1/3 of the way towards earning it for free too!
Here are all the Kit Builder packs:
Yes you can host yourself (in fact, you are strongly encouraged to do so!) and NO, you do not have to pay for the host rewards, they are all company funded.
Here’s a little diagram to show you the benefit of hosting your own party when you join, and an example of the average host gifts (you CAN get a lot more than this as a host – this is just average):
Oh so much! There is online training, run by Norwex and by our FABULOUS team. There is in person training, depending on your location, sometimes run by the Norwex company trainers and sometimes by Norwex leaders.
We are a very cooperative bunch, so leaders tend to work together to support each other, and to support each other’s teams. The senior leaders from Australia travel to New Zealand from time to time to run training, and increasingly we have leaders in New Zealand running training as well. There is also a wonderful Norwex regional manager in New Zealand, Trina Stewart, who runs regular training too.
There are also LOADs of recorded webinars online that you can tap into at your own pace.
You certainly can, and I do, regularly, so if you would like to be added to one to check it out, just let me know. Norwex has now partnered with Sqweee, which means you can basically do an online party “out-of-the-box”, with nothing for you, your host or your guests to download or join! You can also still use Facebook for online parties though, if you prefer.
While I do think it is easier to sell Norwex in person, to be able to show people how it works and physically get it into their hands to try, the fact is, we can’t reach everyone that way, for a variety of reasons. And, some people just prefer online shopping.
While they are in the minority there are now some consultants who successfully run a Norwex business solely through online parties, and in fact at least one of those consultants earned the incentive trip (to South Africa!) in 2017.
Well, the best way is to message me and ask me how to become a norwex consultant, LOL. I have covered a LOT of material here, but believe it or not, there’s still more to know! And getting the timing right really make a difference in terms of getting your kit for free and/or earning the amazing Fresh Start rewards. In truth though, you can sign up with Norwex here.
However, I’m not kidding – I really do strongly suggest you get in touch and we can chat about the best choices for you, whether you should opt in to get your own public Norwex website for free for three months (uh – yes!) and what the best timing is. I’d love to know what you would like to do with the opportunity of joining Norwex (even though that can change over time), and how I can best support you.
I’d love you to join my team, so please get in touch, and let’s chat!
