When I Apply to be a Utility Warehouse Partner it Asks for the ID of my Recruiter
After you fill in your details to apply to become a Utility Warehouse Partner, the next page will ask you for the ID of the ‘sponsor’ or ‘recruiter’. Please enter my ID which is E20173
What is Your Utility Warehouse Partner ID?
When you sign up as a Utility Warehouse Partner, you may get asked for a partner ID. This is the unique ID from the person who introduced you to Utility Warehouse.
If you would prefer to work with another Utility Warehouse Partner, please contact them to obtain their partner ID.

Is it possible to sign up businesses as a Utility Warehouse Partner?
Absolutely – yes! Small and Medium businesses make great Utility Warehouse customers. Because their consumption is usually much greater than residential customers, their savings are usually greater and so is your monthly commission! There is separate training both online and in the classroom to help you sign up business customers.
Are there any other costs associated with being a Utility Warehouse Partner?
Is mentoring available?
Yes. Am very happy to arrange a mentor local to you, or work with you over the telephone. I personally live in Ashford, Kent. If you live within 50 miles of me, I will come with you on at least your first 3 appointments (assuming you require this) and help to sign up your first 3 customers.
Where do you find customers / get leads?
Utility Warehouse trainers show you on training how to build a list of people to contact to offer the opportunity to save and make money. This is a list of people you know and acquaintances that you have.
Once you have but and called your warm contacts, it is possible to supplement your list using one or both of the following methods:
1. Win a Mini.
Every year, the company give away a brand new Mini one car to an entrant into the WAM competition. In order to enter this, they must fill out a form which you can buy by the 500 load from UW HQ. As part of filling out the form they have the option to request a free review of their bills. Many UW Partners run “Win a Mini” events at fetes, fairs, car boot fairs etc. Some have built their entire businesses on this model.YOu can see more about win a mini here:

Do Utility Warehouse run incentives and promotions?
Do you need to sign customers up to all the utility services?
As a Partner, approximately 80% of your CVC (commission from your customer’s paying their monthly bills) will come from energy and about 20% from other services (mobile, landline and broadband).
How much do you earn?
Can I promote my Utility Warehouse business using the internet?
You can also send a link to your personalised ‘sign up’ website to people who have requested it and this is a great way to sign up customers who live a long distance away.
Do Utility Warehouse provide business cards?
Why do I need a tablet to be a Utility Warehouse Partner?
When you sign up as a Partner using the link on the right, you are offered the opportunity to purchase an official Utility Warehouse tablet, paid for at £10 per month for a set period. This is because all customers need to be signed up online. Of course internet connections are not always available in prospective customer’s residences and the tablet provides a way of signing them up without being connected to the internet.
If you are always connected to the internet, then it is perfectly possible to sign up customers using a laptop or desktop computer as I have done many times.
The electronic way of signing up customers was a new feature introduced a few years ago by Utility Warehouse. The old paper application forms were then phased out. This has had the benefit of improving accuracy of signups and speed of getting customers on the system.
Does it cost £50 or £100 to sign up as a Utility Warehouse Partner?
Please can you email me the commission structure?
Absolutely – please sign up to receive an information pack on the right hand side – the commission structure will be emailed to you as a pdf instantly along with a general information pack on becoming a Utility Warehouse Partner. Make sure you add [email protected] to your address book!
What is the catch?
There are two catches to being a Utility Warehouse Partner. The first is the one which gets the vast majority of people and it’s so simple which is why it is missed so often: You have to work. You have to put that effort in, consistently. Many people do sign up and unfortunately do not give their Utility Warehouse business “franchise” the commitment that they should and consequently they fail. That is the hard truth.
I remember attending one of the big company events “Massive Action Day” (run once a year) and seeing everyone who had been in the business for more than 4 years stand up – every one of them was successful and making a good income with this business. That is the key – keep at it, be prepared to take a few “no’s” (they very often turn into yesses once you have given them time and have more experience).

What level of earnings can I realistically expect as a Utility Warehouse Partner?
What do I get for my investment of £100?
Once you have paid you registration fee of £100, you are emailed access details to the Utility Warehouse online portal which allows you to complete online training, obtain your unique web address for signing up customers and register for a classroom training session close to you.
The £100 pays for your welcome box, which contains all of the materials that you need to get started. Once you have signed up 7 customers, all consumables are automatically replenished – brochures etc. It also pays for your classroom training. This is unlimited however and the most successful Partners will attend training 10-20 times in their first year. As a bare minimum you need to complete getting started training twice in your first 3 months to give yourself the best possible start. Finally, you are given your own customised version of the Utility Warehouse website which is regularly updated and maintained and the £100 also entitles you to take advantage of this.
It is important that there is a start-up fee, as there is with almost any franchise. Your Utility Warehouse business will be successful when you take it seriously and treat it as a business. The £100 fee is a barrier to entry and a necessary one to ensure that those who sign up are serious about building a substantial Utility Warehouse income.
