Matilda Jane is sold almost exclusively through home shows and virtual shows. Orders are placed with a Jane, who is considered the party hostess. The Jane, in partnership with her trunkkeeper (MJ Sales Consultant), answers questions and accepts order for her show. In exchange for her efforts, Matilda Jane awards the Jane with benefits based on the sales from her show.

In order to qualify as a show, there must be a minimum of $300 and sales and a total of 3 orders, not including the Jane order.
