Well, it will vary from company to company. It can be tough to compare straight across because there are other considerations besides just the dollar amount of the quota.

Take a look at Stampin' Up's: The quarterly quota is $300. That's $300 pre-demo-discount. So if you "sold" $100 in merchandise, with SU's discount you would pay SU $80 and keep the balance as your instant income. With Stampin Up, ALL of your sales other than demo supplies (catalogs, brochures, that kind of thing) count towards this quota. They also qualify for hostess benefits.

Other companies will vary in this respect. Some might give a little higher discount on your own personal orders, but don't count them towards your quota. Other companies might also not give hostess benefits with a demo order.

See how this can affect comparisons? Only you can decide how you would treat the business...if you plan on making much of your sales through your own personal purchases, you might consider a company that gives sales credit for those. If you are sure you'd have enough outside business to meet the minimums, that might not make any difference.

I can't speak for other companies, I'm afraid...The Angel Company has low quotas, I believe ($100/quarter?), but I don't know the rest of their business plan. Bottom line....loving the product really helps, and investigating the ins and outs before signing up will help steer you in the best direction...
