Scentsy Alphabet Soup

Starting a new Scentsy wickless business can be overwhelming.  Add a bowlful of acronyms and no wonder new consultants are lost and confused.   Hopefully this list of abbreviations and acronyms will help you better understand our lingo.   Some have further explanations and others are more self explanatory.

I am certain there are others that I may have missed.   Feel free to add to this list, and I will continue to do the same as we increase our Scentsy alphabet!

AFL: Active Front Line -A frontline consultant would include any consultants in the first level of a Consultant’s downline. These are the Consultants you personally recruit. To be Active means you have 200 or more PRV for the month. Everyone starts each month inactive.   So an AFL would be a consultant you personally recruit who has 200 PRV for a calendar month.

APO/FPO: Military Mail Addresses.   Army or Air Force use the city abbreviation APO [Army Post Office or Air (Force) Post Office], while Navy, Marine Corps and the Coast Guard use the city abbreviation FPO (Fleet Post Office).

BBMB: Bring Back My Bar – A promotion started in July 2010 which offered 20 previously retired/discontinued scents for one month only.

CC: Certified Consultant

CC: Product code for our Scent Circles (formerly known as Car Candles)

CC: Campus Collection (University warmers)

D: Director

DQ: Director (Q) – The title assigned to any Director who has not qualified for the Director rank for three consecutive months

EC: Escential Consultant

FR: Fundraiser/Fundraising

GWV: Group Wholesale Volume – The sum of the Personal Wholesale Volume (PWV) of each person in a group. GWV is 75% of wholesale.

LC: Lead Consultant

MP: Multi-packs   – Combine and Save options to purchase product combos

PI: Plug-In warmer

P&P: Policies and Procedures. Now referred to as Scentsy Standards. P&P is an obsolete term but still widely used.

PRV: Personal Retail Volume – The point value of commissionable products you sell. With the exception of liIncensed and charity products and Host Rewards, in the United States one point in PRV equals $1 (USD) in retail sales. Countries outside the US have to factor in a peg rate so the 1:1 ratio doesn’t work there.  Consultants learn 30 points in PRV on all licensed products, such as Campus Collection and Scentsy Family Foundation Charitable Cause Warmers.

PWS: Personal Website – When you join Scentsy, you get a FREE three-month subscription to your own Personal Website (PWS), which will help you promote your business, collect online orders, announce online parties, and recruit new Consultants. You can maintain your PWS for a subscription fee of $10 (USD) per month after the first three months.

PWV: Personal Wholesale Volume – 75% of the point value of commissionable products that you sell. PRV x 75% = PWV.
