Today was a sensational day of training… The presenters outdid themselves. We laughed and learned while we learned awesome new ways to tweak our business… If you weren’t there… why not?
We’re excited! For those of us with 1st and 2nd Generation team members that have been earning commissions, our quarterly BDB payments will be processed this evening for payout next week. The members’ names will be announced on tonight’s Sunday evening training call at 9 pm… be there!
Watch for Jenett’s and Annely’s GWT at Home boot camp training… our outstanding upline Home Show Queens’ training is coming to ourgwt.com!
Payment options – Retail Orders, Home Parties & Trade Shows
Use the following options until the new GWT website payment options come online to:
1 – receive payment directly from your customers so you may order from your IA account points in your back office (eliminating the 45 day wait for retail profit!)
2 – allow customers without credit cards to purchase directly from your website
3 – provide discounts for your clients by ordering through your back office
To do these above functions, set up a free PayPal account linked to your bank account. This is completely secure for both you and your clients so they can deposit money into your account either from their own bank account or their credit card. Having their payment in hand, you can process their order immediately, keeping back the retail profit and paying yourself back or your credit card the remaining member price amount. There is a small feee associated with PayPal transactions which you expense at tax time..
For Canadian clients or members wishing to sign up, wanting to place orders or to pay their monthly SAC into their Inventory Account,
Canada Post now has a front loading DEBIT CARD.
When loading it, there is an upper limit of $500 per load increment, with a small fee of $3 for each $500 loaded. There is no transaction fee when the card is used for purchases. The deposit is loaded on in real time for use immediately. This gives your clients the credit card functionality of paying you via PayPal for the order you place at your member price from your IA account or from your retail galleries on the GWT website.
For those members or clients using a regular BMO Mosaik MC, your deposit onto it will also happen in real time when you specify it. Upload cash onto the credit card IN A BRANCH in person; call your branch to verify if it works in real time after 3 on Fridays and on Saturdays. As above, you or they may use this credit card to pay your SAC/IA or order from Promo or Product Dept or for clients again to order from you directly so you can order through your back office and IA account. We regularly hear of members having issues with deposits to front loading debit cards, waiting for a couple of days lag time before the money is available for use.
NEWS FLASH! Important updates on Renewals
Sanaz reminded us to safeguard our businesses! Keep active status by re-investing into your Investment Account monthly so as to both retain and be paid out on your accumulating GROUP SALES VOLUME. Otherwise, by failing to do so, your points will flush after your SAC/IA date!
In addition, anyone with points in their Inventory Account that fails to renew will find that the the software will automatically convert their member points to retail value. Refer to Policies and Procedures…
At our 2012 Convention, Ramin announced that from March onward, all GWT Retailer or Package Members, after paying $194 CDN + appropriate local tax upon renewal on their anniversary date will receive 25 Look Books… however, since each package of 25 Look Books weighs 14 pounds, he realized this would be prohibitively expensive to ship them worldwide! Instead, he has very generously decided that this year, each of us will automatically receive a letter on our renewal date with an envelope containing an upgrade package with all the latest versions of the tools… and a Look Book, Mag Pack and Gift Certificate… whether we renew or not. Another awesome gift from our CEO!!
GREAT NEW FLAT RATES FOR SHIPPING
Sanaz reiterated the new flat rate shipping charges during today’s training. Providing your promo and product orders are placed at the same time, on the same invoice, they will be merged into one order and packed in one box, and charged these amounts:
$35 + HST in Canada (lucky GTA members can still pick up at head office for free)
We will soon have a separate site for both product orders and promo materials to relieve congestion at head office… info to follow.
$45 anywhere in the USA
$110 for International – GWT is absorbing the cost that is in excess of that amount.
Remember that GWT is not able to ship to P.O. boxes because your orders require a signature before being released to you.
Be sure to notify any of your members that are out of the loop of all these notifications…. and double check to ensure that all your team members have registered on the ourgwt.com website… as of yesterday!!
