FGXpress Compensation Plan

  1. 1. FOREVERGREEN / FGX MEMBER COMPENSATION Member Compensation and Fees A Member is compensated pursuant to the ForeverGreen / FGXpress Compensation Plan, (also known as the “Company.”) The Company compensation plan is more fully set forth in Appendix B of these Policies & Procedures. A Member is wholly responsible for meeting the Member’s Qualification requirements for all Volume Periods, and any other program qualification requirements. The Company has no obligation to guarantee or assure that a Member meets any qualification requirement of the Company compensation plan. Earnings Guarantees A Member is neither guaranteed a specific income nor assured any level of profit, success or Rank. A Members’ commissions, income, profit and Rank success can come only through the successful sale, use, and consumption of Company product and the sales, use, and consumption of Company product by other Members and customers within the Members’ Downline. Account Service Fees Due to currency exchange requirements, computer processing costs, and other member services, a country specific processing fee may be charged for each country in which the Member receives Commissions. If a Member is not issued a payment in the Company Compensation Plan for that period, the Member will not be charged the processing fee(s) for that period. Payment of Commissions The Company may pay commission by check, direct deposit (ACH), debit card or any other generally acceptable payment method chosen by the Company. A Member will be responsible for completing any applicable documentation for a payment type and for any excess processing fees or charges incurred due to the payment method. Commission payments will be mailed or transfers initiated weekly, usually within five business days of the close of the Volume Period. Commission payments issued to joint applicants in a ForeverGreen / FGXpress business will be issued in the name of the first applicant listed on the Membership Application. Without prejudice to the Company’s right of termination, the payment of a Member’s commission may be suspended if the Member is in breach of any term or condition of the contract. All members explicitly agree that acceptance of any and all commission payments is absolute acceptance of the contract and all of its terms without limitation including any changes, amendments or modifications thereto at the time of the commission payment. The contract version in force at the time of the commission payment is the contract version currently in use for new signups through the Company websites.

  2. 2. Debiting of Commission Payments A Member agrees that the Company may debit or place a hold on a Member’s Commission payment(s) for any amount the Member owes the Company including the over-payment of commissions, checks with insufficient funds, credit card charge backs, unpaid order balances, account service fees, unpaid fees for services performed and/or government imposed obligations. Replacement Payments Upon request, the Company will issue a replacement payment for a lost or stolen check that has not been cashed; however, if the check was not cashed due to the Member’s inadvertence, a service fee of the greater of five percent (5%) of the value of the payment, or twenty US Dollars ($20.00) will be assessed. Except in the case of theft or fraud, replacement and stop payment requests will not be honored until ten (10) business days after the payment was issued. All costs incurred for stop payment orders and research efforts, shall be paid in advance, or at the Company’s discretion, charged against the Member’s account. Unclaimed Member Compensation The Company makes every effort to ensure all members receive their commission payments. However, when a Company commission payment has been sent to the last known address, but later returned to the Company because a Member has moved without a forwarding address, or the check is returned or is not presented for payment for some other reason beyond the Company’s control, the check shall be voided and the amount shall be credited to the Member’s Company account 150 days after its original date of issue. Thereafter, the credit will be subject to a monthly maintenance fee of 10% of the Commission check value, but no less than ten US Dollars ($10.00) per month to compensate the Company in part for the continued search and investigation for the correct location of the Member owed the Commission check. The monthly maintenance fee also includes mailing costs and any other contact attempts to pay the owed Member. e-Wallet Each distributor will have their own e-Wallet that contains their commission earnings. All commissions default to deposit into the e-Wallet when each commission calculation is completed. It is the Member’s obligation to re-direct the funds to be paid out to them using the e-Wallet tools in the weboffice. e-Wallet funds can be used for Autoship, manual or quick orders and also can be transferred to another Company member for their product purchase. If a member choses to transfer their e-Wallet fund to another member, the Distributor will need to contact the Company and provide all the necessary information through the website ordering process or on the phone. The transferred funds can only be used for Company product purchases and cannot be withdrawn for cash value.

  3. 3. Method Of Commission Payment The Company offers various types of commission payment options dependent upon market availability. All Member commissions will first be deposited into the e-Wallet; then, members can choose to be paid using the locally allowed methods or chose to set up a pre-paid Master Card. For a list of local payment methods, please see the Company library for more details. Service Fees Service fees are charged for any requested placement changes and sales or transfers; these fees are charged regardless of the outcome of the request. In addition, should a Member or any third party legally request or require services necessitating additional time and expense to research and resolve, the Company may charge a fee of one hundred dollars US Dollars ($100.00) per hour plus costs, with a minimum of one hour assessed for each instance. All information generated from such efforts is and will remain the sole property of the Company, and shall be treated as confidential and proprietary information, as defined by the contract. APPENDIX B FOREVERGREEN / FGXPRESS COMPENSATION PLAN Appendix B is part of, and incorporated into, the Company Contract.

It is generally a good practice to purchase Qualifying Product at least every four weeks. The Plan may change as circumstances dictate and at the sole discretion of the Company. Members should review the Plan periodically to make sure they understand the Plan and are making the best use of the Plan as they build their Member Business. If, after reviewing this Plan, and its associated diagrams/tables, a Member still has questions, they should contact their Upline for clarification. Members may also contact the Company with any questions.

Commissions There are six (6) types of commissions and payments. All commission payments and commission payment types require 50 QV within the current bonus period or the previous 3 commission periods (QV4) FastStart – Orders that are part of a FastStart purchase will pay 25% of the CV of the order to the Member’s enroller, based on the Enroller Tree, not the Placement Tree. If the enroller is not qualified, there is no compression. This bonus is only eligible for payment in the period the volume is generated. Only the first order for any Distributor will pay FastStart. A Distributor can be paid both FastStart and Team Bonus on the same order. 1.1.1.1 8% or 12% Team Bonus Members with active order of 50QV and meet the rank qualification will receive an 8% Team Bonus from the Paid leg (small leg). Members with active order of 100QV and meet the rank qualification will receive a 12% Team Bonus from the Paid leg (small leg). When the Team Bonus was calculated, the equal amount of the OV will be deducted from both legs. So for example: If you have a small leg volume of 700 and big leg volume of 1300 for the week, after the calculation, small leg will be set to 0 and big leg volume will become 600. At the start of the next period you will have a carry over of 600 in your big leg. If the minimum of 500 SLCV not achieved, both leg volume will be carry-over to next period. If your personal volume is less than 50 QV for 5 consecutive periods, all leg volume will be flushed. The Team Bonus in each Period is capped at $20,000 per distributor. Any SLCV that exceeds the $20,000 cap for weekly payment will rollover to the next week. BLCV will only be reduced by the amount actually paid in the period. This bonus will only be paid if the Distributor has a personally enrolled distributor in both the left and right legs, and both are currently qualified member with Active order. If a distributor has at least 50 CV in the current period or previous 3 periods and has over 500 SLCV, but is not qualified to receive Team Bonus; then, the maximum SLCV that will be carried forward to the following week will be 500 CV. 1.1.1.2 Rank Cash Bonus –This bonus is designed to reward a Member who qualifies for a new rank for the first time. For 3-Star and 4-Star ranks, the member can earn the Rank Cash Bonus in the second period they qualify for that rank. For 5- Star or above rank, they must fully qualify in 2 periods within one (1) cycle to receive the first portion of the Rank Cash Bonus. For subsequent payments of multi-stage payments the distributor must qualify 2 additional periods within one (1) Cycle to receive any additional Rank Cash Bonuses.
