Direct Selling Association

Since 1965, the DSA has been the recognised trade association for the Direct Selling channel of distribution. Today its member companies account for 59% of total Direct Sales.

Direct Selling is the UK’s largest provider of part time, independent earning opportunities. It is an alternative channel of retail distribution which accounts for sales in excess of £2 billion every year and offers the public a wide range of consumer goods and services.

Direct Selling businesses range from small companies to large multi-national operations. From gas and electricity supplies to clothes, toys and games to skin care and cosmetics, these are just some of the categories of goods that are supplied through Direct Selling companies.
