The customer pays you directly, then you pay Kat's Coffees & More™ minus your percentage. I accept checks, money orders, payments through www.paypal.com or visa or MasterCard. Your customers will need to pay you by check, cash or money order unless you have a way from them to pay you by credit card.
Any Commission credits earned throughout a one year span MUST be used by December 31st of that year. If not they will be considered null and void. No commission credits/in store credits will carry over year to year.
You will earn $12 in commission credit once your recruit places their first order. You will also receive commission credit for all consultants recruited by your downline.
1st downline = $12
2nd downline = $8
3rd downline = $4
4th downline and below = $1
Your commission credit will become available to you as soon as your recruit/s pay for their first order. Kat will apply available credit to orders when available. Please note, no commission will ever be paid - it can only be used as a credit on an order. It can only be used on product, not shipping.
If you only wish to recruit, you will receive a $6.00 (www.mlmlegal.com) in store credit for each recruit. This is a One Time only payment.
If you wish to have a downline, this means you recruit people to join under you. If you recruit this way, you are considered a team leader. As a team leader you will be required to do the following:
1. Keep a record of your recruits under you.
2. Keep in contact with your recruits to see if they have questions or need advice.
3. Make sure that your recruits remain active.
4. If your recruits leave Kat’s then remove them from your list.
If you do not do the above items, you are considered a recruiter only.
If you wish to just recruit people to join Kat’s all you are required to do is make sure that their applications reach me. You do not have to follow up on these members.
Star Recruiters and Sellers
Each month a consultant is the Top Seller (sales at 35%), they will receive $25.00 in commission credit. After being the Top Seller for 6 months (does not have to be consecutive), they will have received $90 in commission credit and will earn the title of Star Seller.
Once a consultant has 25 members in their downline, they will be considered a Star Recruiter. On June1st and December 31st of each year, all consultants who are in a downline that consists of 25 or more will receive a $5 commission bonus just for being in that Star Recruiting downline.
