Health & Wellness Dept. TripleClicks? in Ask Gery #Sales #TripleClicks #VersaPoints

Reply by Gery 17 hours ago

There are new regulations now required for ingestibles involving labels and ingredient disclosure. Until we can get a handle on everything, this department will need to remain offline.

Free CSAs for new Astro Auction VIPs! in SFI News #Astro Auctions #Team Building

Reply by Gery 23 hours ago

Hi Erik,

Our records show you were already a VIP at the time of the announcement. Hence, you would not qualify for the special promotion CSAs.

TCredits transfer in Team Building #PSA #Sponsor #TCredits

Reply by Gery 23 hours ago

Various exploits. Here's one: You've reached your win limit at Pricebenders...so you open up a second account and transfer to that account as many TCredits as needed. Boom, you've now circumvented our win limits which are designed to make it so everyone can win, instead of a handful of people. And it's not just on auctions; there were lots of variations of this unethical activity. People were doing this infinitely, creating many, many accounts to circumvent the rules, before we set transfer limits years ago.

What is over-riding VP? in VersaPoints #Team Building #VersaPoints

Reply by Gery 1 day ago

To clarify...MLM stands for Multi-Level Marketing...a company that has sales representatives that can earn money on multiple generations. We of course have, and have always had that. So, by definition we are an MLM or Network Marketing company. But that doesn't mean we engage in the bad behaviors that some MLM companies have reputations for. Every industry has "bad apples." That doesn't mean the industry is bad or every company in the industry is bad.

What is over-riding VP? in VersaPoints #Team Building #VersaPoints

Reply by Gery 1 day ago

Becoming? We've always been an MLM company. We simply changed the way that overrides are earned, so that Team Leaders are paid more directly on the activity of their own group. The change also allows override commissions to be earned every time a Rewardical or Localvantia vendor dishes out a Rewardical, which will be very big as we continue to build out these properties.

Request re grammatical correction in Miscellaneous

Reply by Gery 2 days ago

Hi Randy,

For the record, I wasn't pointing at you. Indeed, you're correct, it's definitely best to take typos the Support/Bug Report route...because there's a strong chance I won't see 'em here. I just feel badly that Gliceria was trying to highlight a positive and wound up feeling hurt...and I wanted her to know I didn't think she should. Onward and upward!

Right. We are paying out 100% of the available commissions to the sponsor/referrer. There are no other commissions that can be paid out.

It IS a shame. Yes, we saw your post, Sanjeev, about the two typos and we promptly fixed them both (as we will do for all errors if alerted to them). Gliceria was simply pointing out that the correction was made, which was very kind of her! It's a shame that comments were then made that made Gliceria feel bad for highlighting that we listen to our base and always try to do good by our affiliates!

Here's how it's been programmed:

If you were not a VIP at the time of the announcement, you were eligible for the 100 free CSAs.

Become qualified as a VIP before the end of January and you automatically receive (delivered to you immediately) the CSAs prize. So whenever you qualify in January, that's when you'd receive the CSAs.

LOST .... Reward Offered !!! in Miscellaneous #Eager Zebra #TripleClicks

Reply by Gery 2 days ago

Ray,

As others have been saying, this is a TripleClicks badge, not an SFI badge...so you need to click the link for the TripleClicks version of Badge Quest to see your TripleClicks badges. Or, just click your picture here to see your Affiliate Snapshot. Your T-Time badge is 1000% there!

Uber Picks - I am confused in Eager Zebra #Eager Zebra

Reply by Gery 3 days ago

Please check your TCredits Ledger. There's no cost to play Uber-Picks unless stated or you choose to use Sidekicks. And even if you do that, it makes you confirm you want to spend a TCredit each time.

ECA Back in Suggestion Box

Reply by Gery 3 days ago

Allow me to pose a question to the many who still want to be an ECA. Why are you not taking advantage of the Rewardical ECA program?

Learn how here: news.sfimg.com/2018/01/31/eca-program-moving-to-rewardical-com/

Note that this article goes over, in detail, the reasons why big changes were needed for the ECA program. It also explains the many advantages of setting up shop and selling at Rewardical.com. If you want to sell to our affiliates and members, it's right there for you to take advantage of, right now.

Meanwhile, we have some additional options coming that will allow you to sell your wares to Zing Network members through the new advertising platform that's on the way.

You mean the ECA program, right? An ECA is a person and we did not take away anyone's ECAs that they had referred.

100% Direct Commissions every day! in SFI News #Compensation

Reply by Gery 3 days ago

1. How is giving everyone the opportunity to earn much more when they make a sale bad? If I'm an SFI affiliate and I can now earn more on my sales, that's a very good thing. Period. Does it incentivize people to come out of their shells? Who knows, but offering MUCH more money certainly is going to help, not hurt.

2. Successful network marketeers don't sit on their hands. They're constantly prospecting and bringing in new blood. Hence, you can earn these 100% CV Direct Commissions every day, every week, every month, from now on. And this has nothing to do with what your CSAs do. This is about what YOU do. It's your Direct Commissions you earn on your PSAs and PRMs. Recruit more and you'll earn these 100% commissions no matter how long you've been in SFI.

3. Perhaps some are paid to sign up. We have no way of knowing for sure or we'd put a stop to it. But it's likely a small percentage. But I'll go back to #1; Offering more money upfront, a way to get into profits faster is clearly a good thing and is going to help, not hurt, so I'm not understanding why you are treating this like its a bad thing.

4. Every affiliate is someone's CSA. It's one record in the database. There's no "overloading." Our servers and system could handle 100x the current data easily and we can scale up infinitely as needed.

5. Please remember that all of your CSAs are someone else's PSAs. They were sponsored by someone else, they are in someone else's downline, not yours, so it's not feasible for a CSA to act like a PSA in the manner you've described.

Hope this helps!
