In today’s post, I want to review the Trunited Compensation Plan. This compensation plan is also known as the Pay Plan 360. As a quick legal disclaimer, please keep in mind I am an independent affiliate with Trunited.
First off, let me tell you that just about every distributor in every company will tell you that their pay plan is the best. After all, they’re biased and they want you to work with them. I get it. Truth be told, you can make lots of money, or nothing at all, with any compensation plan.
That being said, most compensation plans in our industry are designed for the heavy hitter, not the part-timer. Considering nearly 99% of all network marketers are part-timers, this can be a huge challenge. I’ve always believed if the little guy has no chance of making money, there won’t be any heavy hitters.
A good compensation plan is balanced and fair. It is beneficial and fair for part-timers and full-timers. It not only provides upfront money, but it also provides long-term residual income.
I don’t know if the Trunited Compensation Plan is the BEST plan in the industry, but it’s pretty darn good. I’m happy with it. It’s also unique. What I’m going to do in the paragraphs below is provide a general overview of the Trunited Compensation Plan. I’ve put it in bullet points to keep it simple and easy to understand.
Trunited Compensation Plan Overview
- The Trunited Compensation Plan is called the Pay Plan 360.
- Each month, all of the revenue generated by the company is put into the Piggy Bank, otherwise known as the Profit Pool.
- The company pays its operating expenses out of the Profit Pool, off the top, and 100% of the net profit is paid out in commissions.
- Each $1 of profit the company receives is worth ONE profit point.
- For every purchase you make you earn profit points; the percentage varies from vendor to vendor and product to product, based off its profitability.
- The value of a profit point fluctuates from day-to-day and is “locked in” at the end of the month, based upon the net profit of the company divided by the total points earned in a month (as an example, if there was $100,000 in the profit pool at the end of the month, and there were 400,000 earned profit points company wide, a profit point would be worth 25 cents).
- We earn profit points shopping at global brands, by purchasing gift cards and buying the Direct to Consumer products; the Direct to Consumer products pay the highest percentage of profit points per dollar spent.
- We only MATCH team member’s points UP TO our personal profit points (as an example, if you acquired 30 points during the month, you would match UP TO the first 30 profit points of everyone in your pay levels). This keeps people from just ordering 1 point and getting paid on everyone’s “total” points in their organization.
- Our points accumulate throughout the month as we order and our team orders.
- Your pay at the end of the month is determined by the total points on your pay levels; for example, if you are a Pacesetter, you would get paid on the matching points of THREE levels in your organization multiplied by the value of a profit point.
- If you accumulate 1,000 profit points at the end of the month (your total team), in your pay levels, and a profit point is worth 25 cents, you would earn $250 (that money would be converted to digital currency and deposited in your Tru-wallet).
- The Direct to Consumer products provide instant profit points and the gift cards/global brands can take up to 90 days to post to your account.
- Typically, a profit point is valued between twenty and twenty-five cents, but once again, it will fluctuate.
- Keep in mind, Trunited does not manufacture ANY of its own products. We are not tied to any company or product line. Instead, Trunited has relationships with HUNDREDS of partner stores and merchants.
- There are no minimum order requirements for ordering like most companies have, but you do only match up to the total of your own profit points.
- There is mo breakage in the compensation plan.
- The Trunited Compensation Plan is a Unilevel, which pays out up to 15 levels deep, depending on your rank.
- You get paid on each person in your pay levels UP TO the amount of profit points you have earned yourself in the month.
How Many Levels You Get Paid On
- You only MATCH on points in your team UP TO the amount of points you have personally acquired.
- Everyone gets paid on level 1.
- To get paid on level 2 referrals, you must be a Promoter (6 active personally sponsored people with at least 1 profit point each, and 3 of them have at least 1 active person with at least one point each).
- To get paid on level 3 and below, you must pay the $99 yearly affiliate fee and reach the rank of Pacesetter
- For each Pacesetter leg you develop (it doesn’t have to be a personally sponsored person) you get paid one level deeper in your organization.
- To get paid all the way down to level 15, you must develop 12 Pacesetter legs.
- Until you pay the $99 affiliate fee, you cannot convert your “digital currency” to cash or transfer money to your bank account; you can only use it to pay for purchases with the Direct to Consumer products.
When & How Do We Get Paid
- We typically get paid by the 5th of the month for the previous month’s earnings.
- All earnings are deposited into our Truwallet.
