Six Ways dōTERRA Pays
Going Through The Compensation Plan
#2 Fast Start Bonus
Then when Jane enrolls "Sam," Jane will earn 20%, and you will earn 10% back on everything Sam buys in his first 60 days.
Then when Sam enrolls "Abigail," Sam will earn 20%, Jane will earn 10%, and you will receive 5% back on everything Abigail buys in her first 60 days.
This is the only bonus that is paid out weekly. dōTERRA cuts these checks every Thursday and mails them out, so expect these the following Saturday or Monday (East Coasters). Also, remember that you must have 100pv in your LRP cart at all times when you expect commission checks. That is a requirement in order to earn money from dōTERRA.
#3 Power of Three Bonus
Repeat the process, and help each of your 3, find 3 people for their frontlines, who are also interested in sharing dōTERRA. Once each has their 3, you'll receive the second PO3 Bonus of $250, and each of your 3 friends will get their $50.
Repeat the process one more time, by helping the 9 people on your second-line, get their 3 people, and you will get the third PO3 Bonus, which is $1500, your frontline 3 will get their $250 each, and your second-line 9 will have their $50.
PO3 bonuses are paid out monthly, around the 15th of the following month. You have all month to qualify for the bonus!
#4 Loyalty Rewards Program
In order to earn points each month, and to increase your % back each quarter, you must have a minimum LRP order of 50pv each month. In order to keep the points that you have earned in your cart, you must keep something in your cart. Any amount of pv will keep your LRP cart open and hold the points you have already earned. 1-49pv, means that you keep what you have in points, but will not earn more points, or advance to the next level of % back. If you are going to close your LRP cart, for any reason, please cash in all of your points first! Otherwise, you will lose them. LRP points expire after a year, but I can't see why you wouldn't use them before that! :) The cart below shows what benefits you get at each minimum of pv spent. To maintain your LRP points, you don't have to have 10, you just have to have something, anything from 1-49pv.
It is important to know that when you cash in your points, there is a $3 charge fee for up to every 100pv used. That means each time you cash in ANY points there is at least a $3 charge, and if you go over 100pv, you will be charged $6 for up to the next 100pv. SO, I like to wait and cash in 100pv at a time to get my money's worth out of that fee. I never cash in 101pv, because then I would be charged $6.
Also important to know, when you cash in your LRP points, it subtracts from the amount of pv points that you are spending in that order (because you are getting it for free, instead of buying it). This is important if you are expecting commission checks! Make sure that the pv that you are buying, is still at least 100pv. This is most important when saving your cart after making changes. Make sure it is saved with 100pv; it is in the GREEN letters on the left bottom of your cart. I have my cart set up for 221pv below.
#5 Unilevel Organizational Bonus
Below is a chart that shows what the Unilevel bonus looks like if you only repeat the idea of "you share with 3 people", then "those 3 share with 3," and so on. The dollar amounts are based on the earning you would see if each Wellness Advocate placed a 150pv order each month. I chose 150pv, because then everyone would be earning their PO3 bonuses too, but that bonus is not added in below. This chart is just to show you how fast unilevel can grow.
#6 Leadership Performance Pools
The first Leadership bonus that I received, I earned 3 shares, because you can earn additional shares if when you hit the rank for the first time, you also have first time Elites, that you personally enrolled, hit it the same month. I had 2 brand new Elites the month I hit Silver for the first time! The month was November 2014, and it was not even one of dōTERRA's higher grossing months, but my 3 shares earned me an additional $480! That's pretty awesome!
What this all looks like
Putting all of these bonuses together, below is a chart showing the ACTUAL average earning of dōTERRA Wellness Advocates from the years 2011, 2012, and 2013.
