Actually, even if you order online or via app you can still call in to the testimonial line if they are soliciting callers.
And yes, I have heard young sounding women (and men for that matter) on air. But I think we all know and understand that the average shopper, and therefore caller is older.

On several occasions, I have heard hosts say that they are told by producers that sales can be seen rising as a testimonial caller is on the line. So, I believe that QVC executives believe that they are helpful.
I mean, QVC hosts wouldn't lie about that, would they?

I agree that it all has to do with online ordering vs phone ordering. Back in the day everyone called in, and on occasion you were asked if you wanted to speak on air. These days there is the testimonial line, and I don't know if I would ever be motivated to do that.

I am in my fifties and have a very youthful voice. Always have, one time I had to call the school for my daughter (she got in a bit of trouble) and the principle thought I was her sister calling saying I was her mom!!!! So funny, anyway I don't think I could speak on air, I would be too nervous.......

Callers are "screened" so naturally all will be positive. I turn the channel--it's another time waster--same as when the hosts talk about their kids. Just the facts, ma'am.
@sea breeze . A number of posters here say they were never screened before they spoke.
I have heard a certain very bad word during a few of the calls. One was to Mary Beth! She nearly fainted but handled it well.
