*Payment of bonuses at this rank requires a minimum QOV (Volume Outside the Largest Leg) to be achieved and maintained (as outlined above), in addition to all other rank requirements.

Your 2022 Rank Up Base Rank is:

  • The highest Paid As Rank that was held for any three months or more since December 2019 PV month (not necessarily consecutive) OR
  • It is the base rank of Distributor (if you are new or have not been a Director or higher since December 2019)

Example 1: Patrick became a new Distributor in January 2022. His 2022 Rank Up Base Rank is Distributor. If he promotes to at least the Paid As Rank of Director by December 31, 2022 and holds it for a total of four consecutive months, he will be eligible to start earning 2022 Rank Up Bonuses. Patrick is eligible to earn Pace Setter Bonuses and Rank Up Bonuses simultaneously.

Example 2: Elle became a Director for the first time in November 2021. She held the Paid As Rank of Director in November and December 2021. Since she held the Paid As Rank of Director for less than three months, her 2022 Rank Up Base Rank is Distributor. In January 2022 Elle becomes a Senior Coordinator. She holds the Paid As Rank of Senior Coordinator (with at least 5000 QOV) in January, February, March and April 2022. She qualifies for the Director Rank Up reward and she earns an additional three Rank Up Bonuses – Senior Director, Coordinator, and Senior Coordinator for a total of $5,500 in Rank Up Bonuses. Elle does not stop there and qualifies for more 2022 Rank Up Bonuses as she promotes in rank in 2022.

Example 3: The highest Paid As Rank Max held was Executive Coordinator in January 2020, February 2020, and March 2021. He was a Senior Coordinator every other month in 2020 and 2021. Since he held the Paid As Rank of Executive Coordinator for three months, his 2022 Rank Up Base Rank is Executive Coordinator. He must promote to at least the Paid As Rank of Senior Executive Coordinator (with at least 15,000 QOV) by December 31, 2022 and hold it for a total of four consecutive months to earn any 2022 Rank Up Bonus.

What Does “You Can Earn 3 Rank Up Bonuses at Once” Mean?

You can be in qualification for 3 Rank Up bonuses at a time. If you advance in Rank more than three Paid As Ranks at a time, you will need to complete the first three Rank Up Bonus qualifications before you can start the qualification for the higher Rank Up Bonuses.

For new Distributors or those with the 2022 Rank Up Base Rank of Distributor, the Director Rank Up reward does not count as one of the 3 Rank Up Cash Bonuses you can earn at a time. And new Distributors earning Pace Setter Bonuses can earn Rank Up Bonuses simultaneously!

Example 1: A new Distributor jumps to the Paid As Rank of Senior Coordinator and earns the Director, Senior Director, Coordinator and Senior Coordinator rewards after four consecutive months. They keep going earning more bonuses in 2022 as they advance in rank, meet all the qualification requirements and maintain for 4 consecutive months.

Example 2: Bruce has the 2022 Base Rank of Senior Director. He has huge growth in his business and in March 2022 he achieves the Paid As Rank of Key Coordinator and maintains it for the remainder of 2022 (including all other Rank Up Bonus requirements). Bruce earns the Coordinator, Senior Coordinator and Executive Coordinator Rank Up Bonuses, a total of $8,500, after June PV month. In July he starts the qualification for Senior Executive Coordinator, and Key Coordinator. He completes these qualifications in October and earns another $11,500. He earns the maximum 2022 Rank Up total possible of $20,000.

When are Rank Up Bonuses Paid?

All earned awards will be paid the month after the completion of all four consecutive months of qualification. Rank Up Bonuses will be paid separately from the monthly commission checks, around the 25th of the month (for qualifiers set up for EFT/Direct Deposit).

Example: A Rank Up Bonus award earned in April 2022 (the Paid As Rank was held January, February, March, and April) will be paid via Direct Deposit around May 25, 2022 if the qualifier is set up for EFT/Direct Deposit or with the May 2022 PV commission check around June 15, 2022 if they are not set up on EFT/Direct Deposit.

Business Leaders earning 2022 Rank Up Bonuses must all have separate bank accounts. They cannot share a bank account with another Business Leader or Distributor.

1 – Don’t let your Organization Volume (OV) drop. When you advance in rank above your Rank Up Base Rank, you must increase and hold your Organizational Volume (OV) each month after the rank advancement. Your OV must be higher than your OV in the month prior to your rank advancement.

Example 1: Leader Janice, who has a Rank Up Base Rank of Executive Coordinator, advances in Paid As Rank from Executive Coordinator to Senior Executive Coordinator. Janice’s Organizational Volume in the month prior to her rank advancement was 27,000 and grew to 32,500 in the month of her advancement. Janice must maintain her new Paid As Rank for three additional consecutive months and her OV must remain above 27,000 in each month of her maintenance to be eligible to receive the 2022 Rank Up Bonus for Senior Executive Coordinator.

Example 2: Leader Robert, whose Rank Up Base Rank is Senior Coordinator, advances in Paid As Rank from Senior Coordinator to Executive Coordinator. In the month prior to his rank advancement, Robert had 24,500 Organizational Volume but was missing his third First-Generation Leader leg to qualify for Executive Coordinator. In the month of his rank advancement, Robert acquires his third First-Generation Leader leg; however, his Organizational Volume falls to 20,300, lower than his OV in the month prior to his rank advancement. This month will not count as his first month at the new higher Paid As Rank, because his OV is not higher than his OV in the month prior to his rank advancement. If, in the next month, Robert remains at the new higher Paid-As Rank and increases his OV to a level above 24,500, that month may count as his first month at the new higher Paid-As Rank.

2 – No more than two persons advancing to any new Paid As Rank within a given leg may earn any award at the same time, on the same underlying downline volume. The two persons who are lower in the downline genealogy, who are advancing to any new Paid As Rank, will be eligible for the award.

Under this rule, Senior Director and above rank promotions will be evaluated separately from Director rank promotions, meaning that a Director promotion below a Senior Director or above will not be considered a stacked rank promotion for determining the lowest two in the genealogy.

Example: If Tom promotes to the rank of Senior Coordinator in May 2022, his First-Generation Business Leader Kevin promotes to the rank of Coordinator in May 2022, and Kevin’s First-Generation Business Leader Joe promotes to Senior Director in May 2022, then Kevin and Joe will need to complete their maintenance period through August 2022. Tom can begin his Rank Up Bonus qualification starting in September, after Kevin and Joe have completed and earned their Rank Up Bonuses.

3 – To grow a healthy Shaklee business you need customers (Guests and Members), in addition to Business Builders (Distributors and Business Leaders). Each month during your Rank Up qualification, you must have the following:

a. 67% of your Personal Group Volume (PGV) must be from Guests and Members that ordered through Shaklee.com. A maximum of 250 PV will count per Guest and Member. For instance, if you have 2000 PGV, you will need to have at least 6 Guests or Members ordering at least 225 PV each month.

b. Guests and Member orders must be from unique customers with separate shipping addresses.

c. Guests and Members must use unique credit cards. Orders paid through prepaid credit cards will not be permitted to count toward any Rank Up qualifications.

4 – Any return of product that counted toward qualification of any award will disqualify that award and will result in the forfeiture/deduction of any award(s) paid from the qualifier and/or their upline Business Leader(s).

2022 Rank Up and Reorganizations


The Company will not approve any reorganization or sponsorship line movement where the new Sponsor, new Business Leader, any intervening Distributor between the new Sponsor and new Business Leader, or any upline Business Leader within six generations is in qualification for a 2022 Rank Up Bonus or is still within the time frame where they could be in qualification for a 2022 Rank Up incentive, unless the new Sponsor, new Business Leader, any intervening Distributors, and the six upline Business Leaders relinquish their eligibility to participate in the 2022 Rank Up incentive, as evidenced by their signatures on the Reorganization Form.

From time to time, a new prospect may accidentally sign up on the wrong Personal Website, or under the wrong sponsor, through no fault of the website owner. In those cases, the new Member/Distributor and/or their current Business Leader of record may contact Shaklee with the Reorganization Application within 30 days of signing up online to be transferred to the correct sponsor. In such cases, the Original Sponsor will be changed as well and the 2022 Rank Up eligibility of the uplines of the Original Sponsor will not be affected.

In addition, the Company reserves the right to review, to disallow, and/or to rescind any reorganization into or within the downline of anyone whom they promote to any Business Leader rank that assists in qualifying for any 2022 Rank Up Bonus, if Shaklee determines that qualification for the 2022 Rank Up award is due in whole or in part to the reorganization. Alternatively, the Company reserves the right to exclude any of the uplines involved, regardless of rank, from participation in the 2022 Rank Up incentive.

In the case of a separation, divorce, or full or partial dissolution of a Combined Distributorship, if any first-level Shaklee Family Member is moved with the departing member, then for purposes of the 2022 Rank Up incentive, the Company will treat the transaction as a reorganization subject to the rules above. If there is a court order specifying how the first levels are to be divided, then Shaklee will determine on a case-by-case basis eligibility for participating in the 2022 Rank Up incentive.

Rank Up bonuses may not be earned from a reorganization, roll-up, or sponsorship line movement. Shaklee reserves the right to determine in its sole discretion whether an award is appropriate.

2022 Rank Up and Purchase/Sale or Survivorship Transactions


In the case of a Purchase/Sale or Survivorship transaction, the buyer/transferee may no longer participate in the 2022 Rank Up incentive.

  • The 2022 Rank Up eligibility and qualifications, if any, of the seller/transferor are considered personal to the seller/transferor and do not transfer to the buyer/transferee
  • In addition, the buyer/transferee relinquishes any 2022 Rank Up eligibility or qualifications related to the sponsorship position they are leaving

In order to participate in the 2022 Rank Up Incentive, you must be in compliance with all provisions of the Statement of Privileges and Responsibilities of Shaklee Family Members (P&R), including, but not limited to, the following:

Chapter 1, Other Director Requirements Section


Although Business Leaders may share the expense of office space and one Business Leader may help another through temporary difficulties (but not on a continuing or indeterminate basis), Business Leaders may not prop up a sham or “paper” Business Leader through diverted orders or other devices. “Paper” Business Leaders are those who are Business Leaders in name only and do not actively operate their Shaklee businesses but allow other Business Leaders to sustain and direct their sales leadership functions. This prohibition applies to all Business Leader ranks.

Chapter 3, Export/Import Policy Section (applicable to Canadian Shaklee Family Members)


The products of Shaklee Canada Inc. have been formulated, manufactured, and labelled to comply with Canadian regulatory requirements. The Shaklee products formulated, manufactured, and labelled to comply with the laws of other countries, including the United States, do not necessarily comply with Canadian regulatory requirements. Therefore, Shaklee Independent Distributors may not, directly or indirectly, export the products of Shaklee Canada Inc. for resale in another country, nor may a Shaklee Independent Distributor directly or indirectly import Shaklee products from another country for resale within Canada. Shaklee Canada Inc. will not honour any product guarantee or warranty for products sold in violation of this provision, and any Shaklee Family Member or Shaklee Independent Distributor engaging in such sales will be solely responsible for the products and any related claims or complaints.

Shaklee Independent Distributors may, however, sell and ship Shaklee products to purchasers in other countries where Shaklee does not do business for the purchaser’s personal use only and not for resale to others. If Shaklee operates a business in any market, products of another country may not be shipped to that market for any purpose whatsoever.

Chapter 3, Doing Business on the Internet Section, Prohibited Online Business Practices


Shaklee products may not be marketed on Amazon, eBay, TaoBao, Craigslist, Backpage, Kijiji, other online auction websites, or any e-commerce sites or price-comparison websites that list other products. Distributors may not market directly on these sites, or through the use of any other individuals or agents.

Incentive Programs and/or Terms
Shaklee may, at its discretion, alter, limit, or modify the 2022 Rank Up program. The Company reserves the right to change or modify the Incentive Program terms and conditions or terminate any Incentive Program at any time, for any reason, without prior notice. Your continued participation in any Incentive Program will confirm your acceptance of such changes. The Company reserves the right to monitor the accounts of all participants, at any time and without notice, for compliance with Incentive Program rules. All interpretations of Incentive Program terms and conditions are at the Company’s sole discretion, and the Company’s decisions will be final. In the event of any discrepancy between the English version and any translated version of any Incentive Program rules, the English language version will govern.
Earnings
Shaklee makes no promises or guarantees regarding income, and the success or failure of each Shaklee Distributor, like any other business, depends on your own skills and personal effort. The actual financial results of all Shaklee Distributors for the preceding year are contained in the Average Earnings Chart, which does not include Distributor costs.
