In addition to the other 4 ways of earning commission (Retail, Fast Start, Power of 3 and Unilevel), doTERRA takes 7% of its global commissionable volume and uses it as bonuses for everyone who is Premier and above. There are 3 different bonuses which I will explain below. But first, here is a diagram which summarises it all.
The Unilevel Commission is your financial pipeline and your residual income. It is unlimited and will continue to grow and grow as you and people in your downline continue to share doTERRA. Remember, it is not paid on the first 60 days of someone’s account when the Fast Start payments are made. It only kicks in after those 60 days are up.
In other companies, this is very different. Firstly, most other companies will pay the highest percentage on the people placed close to you – your front line, whereas doTERRA pays the least. This means that actually although you get paid less initially, the earning potential is a lot higher because you get paid the most on the most amount of people in your organisation. And doTERRA pay on 7 levels down, which is, in itself deeper than most companies, and also there is the matter of dynamic compression, which I will explain later. I really love this Unilevel plan, it is so very generous and when you compare it to other companies, it really is amazing.
One of the additional bonuses you can earn with doTERRA is the Power of 3 team structure bonus. This encourages Wellness Advocates to build a solid team structure and rewards us for doing so. This is a set bonus that has a couple of qualifications, and there are 3 different levels of the bonus. The bonus is fixed in terms of the US dollar amount that is earned when the right structure is in place, but obviously what we get as WAs outside of the US depends on the exchange rate, which since Brexit, has made it better for us as the bonuses are higher!
Every time you enroll a new wholesale account member, regardless as to whether they are a Wholesale Customer or Wellness Advocate, you earn a Fast Start bonus on their initial enrollment order, and then on any orders they make for the first 60 days of their membership. You also make this bonus on your team enrollments, and the bonus is paid weekly on a Wednesday. And here is how it works.
