1. What does it cost to get started and how do I sign up?
To be a ZYIA Active Rep, you must purchase a starter kit. Starter Kits cost $395 and include 5 “Staple Items” PLUS a $200 Gift Card to purchase the ZYIA items you love most!

2. What comes in the starter kits?
In addition to the $200 Electronic Gift Card, Starter Kit “Staple Items” include one pair of leggings, 1 bra, 1 jogger, 1 tank or jacket and a hat. (It changes all the time!) You get to order your size of each item.
Also included is $50 in business tools, including 2 free months of Virtual Office, Catalogues, Starter Guide, Order Forms, Brochures and ZYIA Stickers.

3. How quickly can I get started and how long does it take to make back the cost of the starter kit?
As soon as you purchase the starter kit online, you’ll receive an email with instructions how to setup your included website. This took me about 10 minutes. After that, you’re ready to start selling! I made back the initial starter kit cost and more within ONE month. This can vary from rep to rep, but with one party or some online sales, your initial investment can easily be recouped.
4. Do I get a discount on products?
YES! All reps get 25%-28% off ZYIA products!
5. How do I make money and how much commission do I make?
Commission is made from every sale that goes through your rep website. The more you sell, the more you make. Some people choose to do parties (both online and in person), others choose to market through social media. Either way works – whatever generates the most traffic to your site resulting in sales!
Commission starts at 20% and goes up from there. Commission and overrides increase with sales and rank advances. I have never made less than 28% and ZYIA Active frequently adds bonuses and increases commissions, occasionally even doubling commissions. There are always monthly incentives and goals resulting in opportunities for more income! For a detailed chart and more information, visit: https://www.myzyia.com/10627/content/join.aspx
6. Is this a Direct Sales company?
Yes, ZYIA Active uses a multi-level marketing strategy. However, it’s up to you whether or not you want to run your business this way. If you decide you’re happy being a rep and choose to simply sell clothes and collect commission, that’s fine. If you choose to grow your business and increase revenue by adding team members, you will receive rank advancements and more commission. It’s YOUR biz and it’s up to YOU!
(Can we take a moment to appreciate how BOMB these hostess rewards are, though!? It’s SO easy to get parties booked when people are motivated by free and half off activewear!!)
7. Do I have to carry inventory?
NO! This is a huge benefit for ZYIA Active reps. Unlike other companies such as Matilda Jane, reps do NOT have to keep the inventory, requiring large startup costs. If you want to keep inventory and sell using that business model, you can – but it’s not required.
8. What’s the best way to market myself and sell ZYIA Active?
This varies from rep to rep and what works best for your lifestyle. For me, I make most of my sales online – using Instagram and Facebook to promote and sell. Others use parties and/or in-person events such as trade shows and expos. If you’re a fitness instructor or like to workout like me, it sells itself at the gym!
I recommend using all these avenues to maximize your exposure and sales. But again, totally up to you how you choose to run your business and manage your time. After all, that’s what makes working for yourself and running your own business so amazing!
