It is true that in QNet, anyone in the business can stop running their business and still earn an income. By stopping I mean that they either decide that all the hard work they have put into their business is enough for it to "run" by itself or they quit altogether because they do not feel satisfied with the business. Whatever the case may be, as long as their account is still active, they are entitled to earn commissions.
What is an active account? As you may know, upon signing up with QNet as an Independent Representative, you are provided with an account, or as it’s known in QNet, a Virtual Office. To keep your new virtual office open, you are required to pay $10 every year. This means that if you do not pay the annual fee on time, you forfeit any commission your business earns for you after the closing date.
You can still access your virtual office but you will have limited access to it not until you pay the annual fee. Any commissions earned during this time of account closure are forfeited and if you do pay the annual renewal fee later on, all commissions earned during the inactive period will be lost. You will start earning commissions after the renewal date.
How is this important? As I have mentioned above, if your upline is satisfied that all his/her hard work is sufficient for the business to run itself, by this I mean that they are no longer required to put in all their time into building their business, and they keep paying their annual renewal fee, that upline will earn commissions. Notice I used the statement "all their time". They will still need to put in some of their time to work and maintain their business but they do so at their choosing and when their help is required.
If however your upline up and quits their business, their account will be terminated by QNet and they will no longer be eligible to earn commissions. There are two ways this is done. If they quit and no longer pay their annual renewal fees, their account will no longer be active. Also if they inform QNet that they have opted out of their business, QNet permanently closes their account.
What happens to you, the downline, if this happens? Well, you as the downline will be assigned a new upline. In most cases you are placed under your upline's upline. Why should your new upline benefit from your hard word? For one, it's because of their hard work that you finally joined QNet. Remember, they joined first, introduced your old upline who later introduced you to the business.
The QNet business runs on teamwork. Unlike traditional business, you are never alone in your QNet business. Whoever is in your team benefits from your hard work just as you benefit from theirs. There is a common misconception that the QNet business is only about selling products. This is not true. The QNet business is also about building relationships. Once a product has been sold, it's the duty of the up-line to, put it quite simply, make you as successful as he/she is, because the more successful you are, the more success they gain. It is a win-win situation for everyone.
