About Noonday Collection
Noonday Collection, found online at NoondayCollection.com, is a company that says they are a socially responsible business that is using fashion to “create meaningful opportunities around the world.”
How Does It Work?
Noonday Collection is a company that says they have partnered with talented artisan entrepreneurs all around the world in order to help make a difference in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities, like Haiti, Afghanistan, Nepal, Rwanda, and many others.
Their website says that by helping develop artisan businesses through fair trade in these countries, they enable people to grow their businesses to provide quality jobs for other people who need them. Noonday says that they are working hard to build “a flourishing world where children are cherished, women are empowered, people have jobs and we are connected.”
They also work hard to empower women in well developed countries who are interested in becoming company Consultants – which they call Ambassadors – in order to spread awareness and grow the businesses of their artisans, while also growing their own independently owned businesses.
Unfortunately this website doesn’t really provide fully comprehensive information regarding their Compensation Plan, beyond the fact that Consultants will have the opportunity to earn 20-35% commissions on sales, 6% on team sales, and the ability to qualify for group trips in order to visit the Artisans in their home countries. Customers will probably want to contact their own local Noonday Ambassador in order to determine the full details of this plan and the time and effort that will be involved in order to really make this a profitable opportunity.
Customers can look through their current catalogue on their website to get an idea of what their products look like and what they might cost, and whether you might like to host a party.
For people who are hoping to become Consultants, the website says that new Consultants can purchase their choice of Starter Kit, which is priced between $199 and $699 depending on the selection of sample jewelry customers would like their Kit to include. Regardless of which Kit you choose, Consultants will be provided with lookbooks, mini-lookbooks, order forms, and a copy of the Noonday Collection story on DVD.
Their website says that customers who are not 100% satisfied with their purchase are welcome to return their product along with a completed Return and Exchange form online within the first 30 days from the date of purchase, as long as the products are still in unworn, new condition.
Customers who return their products within 31 and 90 days of the date of purchase will still be able to have their returned products accepted, but they will only be provided with store credit rather than an actual refund.
Unfortunately no refunds or returns are provided for sale items.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by email at [email protected] or by submitting them directly to their website through the Contact Us link.
First, it is always important to point out that you should look for reviews either on the specific products in which you are interested in buying or for the business opportunity itself.
Generally speaking prospective customers will have difficulty when trying to find information on a multi level marketing opportunity, because in order to earn the most amount of money, Consultants will need to recruit new representatives to their team. This means that any enthusiastically positive reviews must be looked at with a grain of salt. It’s not uncommon for people to oversell the opportunity and the earnings potential, and undersell the time and effort.
The truth is that this company seems like a standard MLM, which means that it is likely that people will be able to make some extra money each month with this company, as long as they are willing to put in the necessary time and effort. However, the fact that this company places such an emphasis on supporting female artisans in struggling countries around the world is a unique aspect that may encourage people to work with this opportunity as opposed to a competing opportunity.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Companies that offer independent business opportunities generally aimed at women are actually fairly common and include well-known companies like Mary Kay and Avon, Scentsy, Pink Zebra, Lia Sophia, Park Lane Jewelry, and more.
