Here is a list of everything you need to get started selling LuLaRoe in home and online!
A must if you are doing FB Live Parties! They also come in handy when you are photographing your inventory.
I use my lighting kit during FB Live Parties and when I am taking product pictures. You really want your customers to be able to see the correct colors of the clothing items.
Essential if you are doing FB live sales! I love this box of 500, inexpensive coat check tags.
I LOVE these durable clothing racks. You are going to want 3-5 racks. Because I only do live parties and I live in a small apartment in Los Angeles, I only have one rack and use several storage bins to hold my other inventory. I hang my maxi skirts and dresses on my one clothing rack because they take up the most space.
These hangers are by no means fancy, but they are sturdy, great quality, and get the job done. However, if you are planning to do in home pop-ups you might not like that the top of the hanger swivels (it makes hanging and rehanging hard). A lot of consultants like the velvet hangers. They look the nicest and are non-slip.
If you are planning to ship orders, do yourself a favor and order the Dymo Printer NOW! I have shipped with and without one and it will save you time, money, and look a 100 times more professional than writing out labels or even printing out labels from your regular printer (the ink smears terribly by the time it arrives to your customer). The Dymo is a thermal printer meaning it prints lightening fast, never requires ink, doesn’t smear, and looks clean and professional.
Be sure to have one or two backup label rolls always on hand- you don’t want to run out and have 50 orders that still need to go out! Also, you can find cheaper, generic label refills but I suggest getting the Dymo brand because if anything goes wrong with your Dymo Printer, they won’t honor the warranty if you have been using off brand labels.
I use Stamps.com and really enjoy it. It is about $15 a month and makes it so you never have to go to the post office. You also get a discount on all your shipping labels (about $0.50-$0.70 savings per package). Once you have signed up for their service you can have them ship you priority flat rate envelopes and boxes for free. You will want to ship all your items that are heavier than 16 ounces in these. Go to “supplies” (at the top)- “free USPS supplies”- “priority mail envelopes”- “priority flat rate padded envelope” “medium flat rate box” and “large flat rate box.” The other commonly used shipping service is Shipping Easy.
Before I send off people’s clothing, I wrap each piece individually in one of these bags. It makes them look professional and like they are receiving brand new merchandise from a retailer.
I use these to ship all my orders that are under 16 ounces. I like the 9×12 size because it can fit any item nicely in there.
At times LuLaRoe’s invoicing system, Audrey, won’t want to work for you during one of your at home pop-ups. It is important to have a backup way for people to purchase using a credit card. These Square Readers attach to your smart phone, are very simple to use, and are free (you pay a small processing fee for each order, so only use when you have to) .
Etsy has a ton of options for personalized business cards. I bought this simple template, sent the etsy shop owner my info, she emailed me the file, and then I had my business cards printed via Vista Print (I selected the medium range quality).
