QNET's step commission utilises a balanced binary plan. A binary plan, if you do not know, is a compensation plan which allows distributors to have only two front-line distributors. If a distributor sponsors more than two distributors, the excess are placed at levels below the sponsoring distributors front-line.
Distributors must ‘balance’ their two down-line legs to receive commissions, and in QNET's case, distributors are required to have a minimum of 500 BV's on either side of their down-line legs in order to recieve commissions.
Commission payout is no longer based on the accumulation of commissionable unit volumes (CUV's), but rather the accumulation of business volumes (BV's). Each product offered by QNET now has a unique business volume. To recieve weekly commissions, distributors and their teams are required to accumulate a minimum of 3,000 BV's, and depending on rank may recieve USD 200 to USD 300 per week.
NOTE: IR's must be qualified and activated in order to start earning step commissions.
Depending on the size of a distributor's team they may aquire more than 3,000 BV's a week. It is for this reason that QNET now affords each distributor, depending on their rank, a maximum number of step commissions per tracking center. For example, if the distributor in new to the business, they are awarded a Bronze Star. The payout of this rank per step (accumulation of BV's) is USD 200. The maximum number of steps afforded to this distributor per week is 40. In this case, his/her maximum payout per week will be USD 6,800.
Upon accumulation of 3,000 BV's in a step , on both sides of a downline leg, a new cycle begins. There are 6 commission steps in 1 cycle. The payout increases as rank advances. Steps 1 to 5 will be in monetary value. At step 6 of each cycle, the payout will be in eVouchers, which are equivalent to 10 eVoucher Points (EP). These points can be used to redeem exclusive products in the QNET Redeem eStore.
