Since this question was asked, I thought perhaps this poster may have wanted an answer...so I would like to do my good deed for the day.
"pinkpinkustink said: (she is quoting sommeone)
Everyone makes 50% commission on their sales (from a brand new consultant to a National Sales Director)" she goes on and says, "LIES, LIES......
Why do Directors lie like this? Directors get an additional 13% commission form their own orders, which means they actually purchase their products at a 63% discount!
WHY THE LIES OF OMISSION!!!!! "
I see flawed logic in her statement. When anyone places a product order from the Company, we all ibc, sd, or nsd receive a 50% (if the $200/minimum order or the earned discount is in place). Period. That is the truth. Now, a director will be paid a commission on the amount of unit production. This amount can be 9% or 13% depending on the unit production. - and according to pt all directors receive chargebacks monthly which will reduce or even wipe out (according to pt sources) the commission. So there is no guarantee what a director will get as far as unit commission. When an order is placed it is at 50% off at the time of purchase. The commission that is earned is paid the following month -
Spin it any way - all receive a 50% discount when we purchase the products, a director does not receive a 63% discount when placing the products. So I say there is no lie of omission, it is just an attempt to once again twist the facts. And we do purchase our products at 50% off retail. If the products are then sold at retail, one will earn 50% profit. It might not all be spendable profit, and after subtracting samples, etc... the net profit may be reduced to less that 50% - but the truth is we do purchase the products at a 50% discount and when selling the product at retail we do earn 50%. These are the simple facts.
