What is the Points Requirement Adjustment?
Plexus has made an adjustment to the way Pay Points are earned to incentivize Ambassadors to continually build a balanced business. Here’s how it works.
Beginning May 1, 2019, the Highest Achieved Rank determines the total Pay Point earning, which allows Ambassadors to earn all the available Pay Points for their particular Rank, up to (but not including) the minimum point requirement of the following rank.
- Example: If an Ambassador’s Highest Achieved Rank is Gold, they are eligible to earn Pay Points, up to (but not including) the minimum 250-point requirement of Sr. Gold (the next rank).
Starting January 1, 2020, this requirement adjustment will then transition to Paid Rank.
- Example: If in a given month an Ambassador earns a Paid Rank of Gold, they are eligible to earn Pay Points up to (but not including) the minimum 250-point requirement of Sr. Gold (the next rank).
Why are we making this update?
Periodically we make small changes to our Compensation Plan to align with current industry standards. These changes are always made with the best interests of our Ambassadors at heart.
This requirement adjustment is designed to encourage balanced and consistent business building activities, while encouraging stable, long-term growth. In addition, this adjustment more adequately aligns with our desired culture of engaged leadership through customer, Ambassador and Leader development and support.
What would cause someone to earn lower pay points after this update?
Ambassadors who did not have the required Personally Sponsored Qualified Ambassadors and/or Points outside their Primary Leg, but were receiving unlimited pay points above their current Rank, would cause lower pay points.
Will I earn all other commissions based on my Highest Achieved Rank?
No. This only applies to the amount of total pay points you can earn. All other requirements, such as number of personally sponsored Ambassadors, or their downline levels, will still be based on the Ambassador's Paid Rank.
Will this affect any contests or incentives?
No. All contest and incentive requirements will still be based on the Ambassador's and their organization’s activities. This update will only impact Pay Points.
How do I determine how many points I am qualified to earn?
Your Rank will determine the total Pay Point earning. This allows an Ambassador to earn all the available Pay Points for that Rank, up to (but not including) the minimum point requirement of the following Rank.
