How to Become a Catalog Representative


A catalog representative is a person who sells products through catalog orders and earns a certain percentage of the products sold. Before the Internet, buying products through catalogs was very popular. The Internet has made it possible to access unlimited items and to search for the best bargains. There are still some, however, that do not shop on-line, such as those without computer access and those who do not trust the security of on-line sales. This leaves a large number of people who still like to shop from catalogs, which means there is still money to be made as a catalog representative.

  • Decide on the type of products you would like to sell as a catalog representative and the company you would like to work with. For a list of catalog and mail order companies, see the resource section below.

  • Contact the company that you are interested in and have them send you a representative agreement for you to look over. Most catalog companies charge a small fee to join them as a catalog representative. This fee can vary, but it is usually less than $50.

  • Once the agreement is received by the catalog company, it will usually send you a few starter catalogs, along with a welcome pack and other information to help you get started as a catalog representative for their company.
