New Comp Plan Improvements


Effective immediately, VersaPoints’ one and only role will be to determine rank (e.g. 1500 VP = Executive Affiliate).  No longer will VersaPoints also represent shares of the Executive Pool.  This is because we are replacing the Executive Pool with something more powerful and lucrative!

Presenting…TEAM OVERRIDES!  Through our new Team Overrides—available to all Executive Affiliates and up—you can now earn 4% on up to 12 dynamically-compressed levels!

What does “dynamic compression” mean?  It means you now can earn rich override commissions infinitely deep in your group!  You’re no longer limited to just 6-12 generations as before.  Now, because any generation in a line not represented by an Executive Affiliate is automatically passed over (“compressed”), you can earn 15, 20, 25 50, or even more generations deep into your organization! 

Here’s the breakdown:

  • If you’re an EA, you’ll earn 4% of all CV on 3 compressed generations
  • If you’re a BTL, you’ll earn 4% of all CV on 6 compressed generations
  • If you’re an STL, you’ll earn 4% of all CV on 8 compressed generations
  • If you’re a GTL, you’ll earn 4% of all CV on 10 compressed generations
  • If you’re a PTL, you’ll earn 4% of all CV on 11 compressed generations
  • If you’re a DTL, you’ll earn 4% of all CV on 12 compressed generations

The higher your rank the deeper in your organization you can earn (see attached illustration for an example of how dynamic compression works at end of announcement).

Three more BIG benefits of Team Overrides:

1. Until now, there have been only indirect earnings (from Matching VP) available on retail sales at TripleClicks generated by your group members.  Now, you can earn overrides directly on every sale made by the affiliates in your group…infinitely deep…on ALL sales at ALL Zing Network sites!

2. Previously, all CV (Commission Volume) on Localvantia and Rewardical sales just went into the Executive Pool.  Now, Direct Commissions, Co-Sponsor Commissions, and Team Overrides are earned and paid out directly on ALL these vendor sales!  To put it another way, whenever a vendor dishes out Rewardicals to a customer, commissions to Sponsors, Co-Sponsors, and 12 upline EAs/Team Leaders are immediately generated!

3. We will have the ability to do Instant Pays on ALL commissions (no need to wait until days after a month ends to calculate share values).  Speaking of share values, you can now erase this term from your SFI vocabulary.  No more worrying about shares values, whether they’re increasing or decreasing; just focus on building your business, adding to your team, referring new members, and generating sales!

By the way, to make it so many more of our affiliates can enjoy our new deep, deep, deep overrides, we’ve also lowered the qualifications for all Team Leader ranks!  See next section…


We’ve now made it easier to become a Team Leader.  The new qualifications (monthly) are:

Bronze Team Leader (BTL)

  • Minimum 3000 VersaPoints (VP) (1,500 min from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (3) PSAs
  • Minimum 3-star sponsor rating from PSAs (not required if you receive less than 3 ratings)

Silver Team Leader (STL)

  • Minimum 4000 VersaPoints (VP) (1,500 min from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (3) PSAs, one with the minimum rank of BTL
  • Minimum 3-star sponsor rating from PSAs (not required if you receive less than 3 ratings)

Gold Team Leader (GTL)

  • Minimum 5000 VersaPoints (VP) (1,500 min from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (3) PSAs, two with the minimum rank of STL
  • Minimum 3-star sponsor rating from PSAs (not required if you receive less than 3 ratings)

Platinum Team Leader (PTL)

  • Minimum 6,000 VersaPoints (VP) (1,500 min from sales/purchases)
  • Minimum (3) PSAs with the minimum rank of GTL
  • Minimum 3-star sponsor rating from PSAs (not required if you receive less than 3 ratings)

Diamond Team Leader (DTL)

  • Minimum 1,500 sales VersaPoints
  • Minimum (3) PSAs with the minimum rank of PTL

Note that you can of course, as always, have as many PSAs as you want, but we recommend focusing on three PSAs as the best way to grow and advance your rank.  Once you’ve established three strong teams (with a strong Team Leader PSA at the top), add a fourth, then a fifth, and so on.  But the key, to maximize your growth, is to establish no more than three strong teams before adding more teams.  Learn more HERE.


All VersaPoints will now automatically transfer to the next month (if less than 1500).  No more will you have panicked new affiliates at the beginning of new months wondering why their VersaPoints are showing zero!  Instead, if less than 1500 VersaPoints are earned, we’ll just automatically transfer the points to the new month so the affiliate can continue, uninterrupted, towards achieving Executive Affiliate status.  And, again, this will happen every month automatically.  

Special Note: To prevent fraud, to earn EA perks such as Bonus TCredits, qualifying VersaPoints must be earned in the prior 45 days from when commissions are processed.


Our (Co-Sponsored Affiliate) program is one of SFI’s most popular programs.  So we’ve decided to give it an even bigger role!

Effective immediately, we are allocating 32% of CV to the CSA program.  However, instead of just a single Co-Sponsor, every affiliate will now have up to four Co-Sponsors, each earning 8%.

Important note: For all existing, currently-assigned CSAs, the current Co-Sponsor will be populating TWO of the Co-Sponsor “slots.”  So, instead of 15% commissions, you’re now going to be earning 16% (8% x 2)!

Why go from one Co-Sponsor to up to four?  There are two big reasons:

  1. We feel that new affiliates will benefit from having additional Co-Sponsors to assist and support them.
  2. The new Smart Start program is doing nicely, with the current incentive of up to 50 CSAs.  With our new allocation and method of assigning up to four Co-Sponsors, however, we will be able to offer even more CSAs (watch for announcement) which will make it even harder to resist, and will result in even more of your new affiliates advancing to EA in their first 30 days.  This of course can explode group activity and commissions for sponsors and upline Team Leaders.

Also, effective immediately, you’ll now earn Rewardical Referral Matches on all your CSAs!  For every 25 Rewardicals earned by your CSAs, you’ll now earn 1 Rewardical.

Special Note: With up to three more Co-Sponsors now in the mix, it’s critical that all persons supporting new affiliates (Sponsors, upline Team Leaders, and Co-Sponsors) clearly know their role.  Please review this important new “Leadership Do’s & Don’ts” article so that you are providing proper support while not overstepping your responsibilities.


The new Smart Start program has substantially increased the number of new affiliates going EA daily.  Now we need to provide ample reason to retain that EA status every month!

To that end, we are introducing this month a handsome new trio of bonuses for all EAs…

As you know, new affiliates, through Smart Start, now begin their SFI adventure with an allotment of up to 1000 Rewardicals and up to 50 CSAs.  We want to expand this!  So, effective immediately, upon requalifying, all EAs (starting with their second full month in SFI) will receive, each month, (following commission processing):

  • Up to 100 Bonus Rewardicals!
  • Up to 20 Bonus CSAs!
  • Up to 20 Bonus TCredits!

See Benefits Chart for exact breakdown by rank.

Note: To make this possible, we need to modify the CSA Rewards program.  Effective immediately, we will be eliminating the current dozens of miscellaneous ways to earn CSAs, and focus this program primarily on awarding as many CSAs as possible for retaining the rank of EA. 

Why?  Our data indicates that modifying the CSA Rewards program in this way will result in much greater retainment of EAs and, hence, higher commissions for everyone.  Yes, every Executive Affiliate on your team will now have the opportunity to realistically build a team of hundreds of active CSAs over time.  And no one will want to give up their EA status and the potential lifetime profits of their CSAs by forfeiting them!

And, of course, the more EAs you have on your team, the more Team Leaders are going to materialize in your group, and the more overall momentum and activity will manifest. And THAT is how BIG incomes get created and Diamond Team Leaders come to be!


  1. With the discontinuation of the Executive Pool, Milestone Shares no longer make sense and, hence, have been discontinued, effective immediately.  Note: If you qualified for Milestone Shares in May, you will receive in your May commissions the value of those shares.
  2. To accommodate our new features, Direct Commissions now start at 20%.  However, with Team Overrides, you’ll be able to boost your de facto Direct Commissions to 24% or more.
  3. Check out our new compensation plan details page:
  4. The “My Earnings” panel has been temporarily removed from the Scoreboard tab to allow for needed updates.
  5. Since Matching VersaPoints are no longer a thing, we’ve removed the section of the Genealogy (top left corner) that provided Matching VP data.
  6. With the big change to the Executive Pool and CSA program, the Genealogy may be down temporarily for new code to be put in place.  Some other pages within the Affiliate Center may also have some temporary downtime and/or missing information during the transition.  Please bear with us.


Following is an example of how the new Team Overrides use dynamic compression to allow you to earn deep, deep, deep into your group!

In this line of sponsorship, the black dots represent the 12 EAs & Team Leaders qualified for Team Overrides.

The white dots represent generations in the line NOT qualified for Team Overrides.  Hence, they are skipped (“compressed”).

The red dot at the bottom of the line represents a sale with $40 CV.

4% of the CV ($1.60) is paid to each  of the 12 qualified upline EAs and Team Leaders in the line.

You’ll note that the Team Leader at the top of this example earned a Team Override 19 generations deep!

The sponsor (represented by the black circle immediately above the red dot) would have also received a 20% Direct Commission on the sale in addition to a Team Override ($9.60 total).
