We’re very excited today to announce the TripleClicks Booster Club!
Becoming a Booster Club member has the same rules as being SOQ (Standing Order Qualified):
It means you have placed one or more orders with a minimum of 1500 VP for the current month AND also in the previous month.
Your orders can be those set to reoccur automatically each month (Auto-Delivery) or they can just be placed manually at any time throughout the month. Any combination, your choice.
Note: Alternately, you can achieve BCQ (Booster Club Qualified) status immediately with a minimum of 3000 VP in purchases in the current month.
The term “Standing Order” is no longer an official SFI term. Effective immediately, Auto-Delivery (auto-delivered orders) replaces what you used to know as a Standing Order in our system. And being a Booster Club member (Booster Club Qualified or BCQ) now takes the place of the term Standing Order Qualified (SOQ).
So, erase “Standing Order” and “SOQ” from your memory. The new kids on the block are Auto-Delivery and Booster Club Qualified (BCQ).
NOTE! The term “Standing Order” has been used in SFI for well over a decade, so there are many, many references throughout our documentation, training, etc., both at the Affiliate Center and at TripleClicks. We are currently updating everything as quickly as we can, but it may take a few days to locate every reference. Please bear with us as we make these updates. Thank you!
More about the Booster Club
Why the name Booster Club? For starters, we’ve come to the conclusion that the terms Standing Order and SOQ had little if any “allure” and provided little gratification for our affiliates. Meanwhile, the Standing Order badge on your Join My Team gateway was not helping you win over prospects either, because it represents a foreign term.
The name Booster Club, on the other hand, much better describes what the actions behind it are about. That is, being a member means you understand how valuable it is, as an SFI affiliate, to support your store and practice Transfer Buying whenever possible. And your prospects and team members who see your badge will understand and appreciate that you are a strong supporter/cheerleader for TripleClicks.
Now consider these three major benefits as a Booster Club member:
- You’ll be boosting the TripleClicks Executive Pool (SFI’s profit-sharing program) and potentially the commissions of all Executive Affiliates and Team Leaders, not only those in your own team, but companywide!
- You’ll be boosting traffic at TripleClicks, which boosts TripleClicks visibility in the marketplace, which helps facilitate valuable enhancements like a broader range of products, lower prices, a bigger and better ECA program, more Spotlight Merchants, being able to perhaps negotiate lower shipping rates, and much more!
- You’ll be boosting your own leadership resume, which can be invaluable! Especially as a Team Leader, you’ll want to lead by example when it comes to the TripleClicks Booster Club. Having the Booster Club Member badge tells your team that you “walk the walk.” You don’t just talk and expect your team members to be a part of the Booster Club. No, “you put your money where your mouth is” as the old saying goes. And when you lead by example, your team members will be inclined to follow your lead, which will increase your commissions, as it will for them as well with their team, for the same reason.
TIP: Being a Booster Club member can also just mean that you’re investing directly in the success of your business. That is, your qualifying purchases can consist entirely of S-Builder Co-op units, PSAs To Go, TCredits for bidding on CSAs, and so on.
And what’s the cost to be a Booster Club member? You can easily meet the minimum monthly 1500 VP requirement for less than $1.21 a day.
That’s less than what most people spend on a cup of coffee or snack each day! So why not build a great business with that money instead?
As we talk about in the “Overnight Success” LaunchPad lesson…
“Can you think of any other endeavor where you could invest just five to 10 hours a week for a couple years and at the end of that time have built a full-time income? Money that keeps coming in month after month, year after year. Money that keeps coming in whether you work 10 hours a day or two. A commission check waiting for you in your mailbox when you return from yet another vacation. Money that when you’ve left this planet continues to provide for your spouse, children, or grandchildren.”
Becoming a member and maintaining membership in the TripleClicks Booster Club is one of the key ways you’ll put the above into action, so become a Booster Club member now!
4 more big Booster Club benefits
Boosting commissions for every SFI Executive Affiliate and Team Leader, boosting your personal leadership resume, and helping to make your store, TripleClicks, bigger and better every month are of course truly MAJOR benefits. But that’s not all! Being a Booster Club member also means…
- You will receive 10 income-boosting CSAs (via CSA Rewards) monthly!
- You will receive 100 Bonus VersaPoints each month! That’s 100 extra shares of the TripleClicks Executive Pool paid to you monthly, too!
- You will receive two additional entries each day in the big Daily Grand drawing! That’s a whopping 730 extra chances each year to win hundreds of dollars in valuable and income-boosting prizes!
- Your badge mantel will be sporting a prestigious, new “Booster Club Member” badge to help you lead by example with your own team and enhance your recruiting.

Who’s a member, who’s not?
We want to put a significant emphasis on Booster Club membership. Therefore, effective immediately, you’ll begin seeing this “membership ID card” icon around the Affiliate Center:
The icon will also appear in your Affiliate Center header (beneath your rank badge) to let you know when YOU are Booster Club Qualified (BCQ) and are eligible for all the Booster Club benefits. Likewise, the icon will appear in the header at TripleClicks if you are currently qualified as a Booster Club member.
We’ve also added a helpful new panel to the Scoreboard tab. The new Booster Club panel will provide you and all your team members with an up-t0-the-minute accounting of your Booster Club status.
Help us spread the news!
We’re truly excited about the TripleClicks Booster Club. We hope you are too and will join us in our “Booster Club drive” and help get the word out to every SFI affiliate!

Q & A
Q: How will I know when I’m Booster Club Qualified (BCQ)?
Under your rank badge in the header at the Affiliate Center, if you’re BCQ, you’ll now see a small “Member ID Card” icon. If you see this icon, you’re officially BCQ and are eligible for all Booster Club benefits. If you don’t see it, it means you’re currently NOT Booster Club Qualified.
Q: Is there a way to make my Booster Club Qualified (BCQ) status automatic each month?
Yes, very simple! Just set up an Auto-Delivery order (or orders) at TripleClicks for one or more products (with a minimum of 1500 VP) that you wish to receive automatically each month. And as an added bonus, by setting up a product as an Auto-Delivery, you get it at the discounted, Auto-Delivery price!
Q: I don’t have, nor can I get, a credit card. I also cannot get a PayPal account. So how can I make qualifying purchases?
Your best option then is probably to accumulate your SFI commissions and pay for orders out of these funds. TCurrency is also an excellent option in most countries. By using TCurrency, you can actually pay for your orders using your local currency or even barter! Learn all about TCurrency and how it works HERE. Tip: You are not limited to buying TCurrency from merchants in your country; feel free to use merchants in your region or even outside your region. No TCurrency merchants in your region? Consider taking advantage of this opportunity by becoming a TCurrency merchant yourself. Learn about this HERE.
Q: So how many total VP do I need?
Being BCQ means that you have placed one or more orders with a minimum of 1500 VP for the current month AND in the the previous month…so a minimum of 3000 total VP for the two months.
Q: Is there a way to know exactly how much VP I need to qualify as a Booster Club member at any given time?
Yes. See the Booster Club panel on your Scoreboard tab for this information.
Q: Can I only purchase TC Direct products to become BCQ?
No. You can buy from any ECA or any Spotlight Merchant as well.
Q: What do I need to do to be BCQ as soon as possible so I can qualify for all the Booster Club benefits?
Just generate a minimum of 1500 VP in purchases this month, before the end of February…and then another 1500 VP in purchases before the end of March. Note that these can be any combination of orders placed automatically (Auto-Delivery) or manually, whenever you want during the month.
Q: So purchases are now required at SFI?
No, nothing has changed from this standpoint. You can still earn all your necessary VP doing actions that are free and/or have no out-of-pocket cost. Moreover, you can still earn unlimited commissions regardless of your rank and regardless of whether you are BCQ or not. The Booster Club program simply adds some extra perks for those who are practicing transfer buying and supporting their store.
Q: Can I pay for my orders with MRP and/or TCredits?
Not at this time.
Q: Can I use backdating when placing orders to qualify for BCQ status?
Yes. The backdating option on orders is available during the first 8 days of each month. By choosing this option during checkout, you can have the VP and CV for your order applied to the previous month.
