On May 1st 2017, there will be significant changes in the U.S. & Puerto Rico (PR).
These changes will affect you if you place an order in the United States or PR and are relying on the volume for your qualification to earn, worldwide earnings, discount advancement, Sales & Marketing Plan levels, promotions, etc.
Effective May 1st 2017, if you plan to rely on U.S./PR volume for your qualification to earn or for any other qualification, you must ensure that the U.S./PR volume is “Documented.”
DV includes profitable, receipted sales to customers in the U.S./PR, purchases by Preferred Members, and purchases in other countries by you and your downline Distributors.
Purchases in the U.S./PR for personal consumption and purchases for retail sale where a receipt was not generated will NOT count as Documented Volume.
There are six ways to accumulate Documented Volume:
If you are relying on this volume to qualify to earn on both your U.S./PR and Worldwide earnings, these new rules could potentially impact your qualification if your U.S./PR purchases are not documented. As a result, we have decided to place certain limits on the ability of International Distributors to place an order in the U.S. & Puerto Rico.
There are two major reasons for this change:
Effective April 28th 2017, International Distributors who do not have a U.S. or PR address on Herbalife’s records will only be able to place the following orders to support their customer sales:
*If the order is being shipped directly to your customer in the U.S. or Puerto Rico, you will be asked to provide the customer’s information and the price you charged the customer. The receipt will be generated and submitted automatically if you include the required information.
We will no longer accept personal consumption orders or retail inventory orders in the U.S. for any International Distributor; this includes orders when at events or when visiting the U.S. or Puerto Rico.
We thank you for your understanding and your support as we work together to ensure a successful implementation of the FTC order in the U.S./PR.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t live in the U.S./PR. What matters is where you or your downline are placing the orders. If you or your downline are placing orders in the U.S. or PR, these rules apply.
This may affect your qualification to earn (earning percentage) on both your U.S./PR and worldwide earnings.
