Pace Setter New Distributor Growth Bonuses

Get started, get growing, and earn with the Pace Setter New Distributor Growth Bonuses.

This incentive rewards new Distributors who are committed to building quickly with a bonus, over and above their regular Shaklee compensation, when they hit specific volume and Distributor sponsoring goals.

Who’s Eligible to Participate?

  • New Distributors who join after January 1, 2021
  • Existing Distributors under 2000 Personal Group Volume (PGV)
    • Existing Distributors’ starting tier is based on their December PGV, and they can qualify by achieving the next tier by January 31, 2021
    • Example: John’s December 2020 volume = 600 PGV, so his first target will be 1000 PGV in January to earn $100 Pace Setter Bonus

*Time frame explained:
New Distributors may only earn Pace Setter bonuses during their four-month qualifying time frame (Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, and Month 4) after their enrollment. The Month 1 requirement must be met in either their Join Month (the remaining days of the month in which the new Distributor joins as a Distributor) OR the first full calendar month after the Join Month. When the Month 1 requirement is met (in either the Join Month or first full calendar month), the qualifying time frame starts for the remaining bonuses, which must be achieved in the three consecutive months after the month in which the new Distributor achieved Month 1. If a new Distributor doesn’t meet the Month 1 requirement in either the Join Month or first full calendar month, his or her first full calendar month shall be counted as new Distributor’s Month 1 and the qualifying time frame will start for the remaining bonuses on the first day of his or her second full month to achieve Month 2, Month 3, and Month 4 requirements.
Example: Joe joined Shaklee as a Distributor on January 23. His Join Month would be January. He can achieve 500 PGV to earn the $50 Pace Setter Bonus in either January (his Join Month) OR February (his Month 1 or first full calendar month). The month in which he achieves the Month 1500 PGV requirement will determine the months in which he’s eligible to earn the $100, $150, and $200 Pace Setter Bonuses. Option A and Option B, below, explain how this works:
  • Option A – COMPLETES MONTH 1 REQUIREMENT IN JOIN MONTH (JANUARY): If Joe achieves 500 PGV (the Month 1 requirement) in January (his Join Month), he earns the Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus. He would then need to meet the Month 2 requirement in February to earn the $100 Pace Setter Bonus, Month 3 requirement in March to earn the $150 Pace Setter Bonus, and Month 4 requirement in April to earn the $200 Pace Setter Bonus.
  • Option B – COMPLETES MONTH 1 REQUIREMENT IN FIRST FULL CALENDAR MONTH (February): Because Joe joined as a Distributor in January, his Month 1 (or first full calendar month) would be February. He would need to meet the requirement for Month 1 in February to earn the $50 Pace Setter Bonus, Month 2 requirement in March to earn the $100 Pace Setter Bonus, Month 3 requirement in April to earn the $150 Pace Setter Bonus, and Month 4 requirement in May to earn the $200 Pace Setter Bonus.

Pace Setter Bonuses must be earned one at a time, and only one bonus may be earned each month.

To earn the full $500 in Pace Setter Bonuses,1 a NEW Distributor must achieve the following:

1. $50 bonus – During Month 1 (defined above and in Rules and Examples, below), a NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 1 requirement (500 PGV or greater) to earn a $50 Pace Setter Bonus. The required volume must occur in one calendar month. Volume from the NEW Distributor’s join month and his or her first full month after the join month may not be combined.

Example: Mary joins Shaklee as a Distributor on January 12. She must achieve the Month 1 requirement (500 PGV) in the calendar month of January OR the calendar month of February to earn the $50 bonus.

2. $100 bonus:

  1. If a Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus was earned, the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 2 requirement (1000 PGV or greater) in his or her next calendar month to earn a $100 Pace Setter Bonus.
    Example 1 (Month 1 completed in join month): Mary joins as a Distributor on January 12 and achieves the Month 1 requirement (500 PGV) to earn the $50 bonus in January. She must achieve the Month 2 requirement (1000 PGV) in February to earn the $100 bonus.
    Example 2 (Month 1 completed in first full calendar month): Mary joins as a Distributor on January 12 and achieves the Month 1 requirement (500 PGV) to earn the $50 bonus in February. She must achieve the Month 2 requirement (1000 PGV) in March to earn the $100 bonus.
  2. If the NEW Distributor’s join month and first full calendar month have passed and he or she hasn’t earned a Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus, the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 2 requirement (1000 PGV or greater) to earn a $100 Pace Setter Bonus.
    Example: Mary joins as a Distributor on January 12. She doesn’t achieve the Month 1 requirement in January or February, so she doesn’t earn the Month 1 $50 bonus. To earn the Month 2 $100 bonus, she must achieve the Month 2 requirement (1,000 PGV) in March.
  3. The required volume must occur in one calendar month. Volume from the NEW Distributor’s join month or any of his or her first two full months after the join month may not be combined.

3. $150 bonus:

  1. If a Month 2 $100 Pace Setter Bonus was earned, in his or her next month the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 3 requirements (1500 PGV or greater AND a minimum of one personally sponsored active Distributor in that same month) to earn a $150 Pace Setter Bonus.
    Example 1 (Month 1 completed in Join Month): Mary joins Shaklee as a Distributor on January 12. She earns the Month 1 $50 bonus in January and the Month 2 $100 bonus in February. She must achieve the Month 3 requirements in March. To earn the Month 3 $150 bonus, in March she achieves 1500 PGV and personally sponsors Alicia as a new Distributor with a 100 PV order. Alicia counts as her required one active Distributor.
    Example 2 (Month 1 completed in first full calendar month): Mary joins as a Distributor on January 12. She earns the Month 1 $50 bonus in February and the Month 2 $100 bonus in March. She must achieve the Month 3 requirements in April. To earn the Month 3 $150 bonus, in April she achieves 1500 PGV and personally sponsors Alicia as a new Distributor with a 100 PV order. Alicia counts as her required one active Distributor.
  2. If the NEW Distributor’s join month and first two full calendar months have passed and he or she hasn’t earned a $100 Pace Setter Bonus, in his or her third full calendar month the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 3 requirements (1500 PGV or greater AND a minimum of one personally sponsored active Distributor in that same month) to earn a $150 Pace Setter Bonus.
    Example: Mary joins as a Distributor on January 12. She does NOT achieve the Month 1 requirement in January or February to earn the Month 1 $50 bonus, nor the Month 2 requirement in March to earn the Month 2 $100 bonus. To earn the Month 3 $150 bonus, she must achieve the Month 3 requirements in April.
  3. The required volume and active Distributor count must occur in one calendar month; volume and active Distributor count from the NEW Distributor’s join month or any of his or her first three full months after the join month may not be combined.

4. $200 bonus:

  1. If a Month 3 $150 Pace Setter Bonus was earned, in his or her next month the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 4 requirements (2000 PGV or greater AND a minimum of two personally sponsored active Distributors in that same month) to earn a $200 Pace Setter Bonus.
    Example 1 (Month 1 completed in join month): Mary joins Shaklee as a Distributor on January 12. She earns the Month 1 $50 bonus in January, the Month 2 $100 bonus in February, and the Month 3 $150 bonus in March. She must achieve the Month 4 requirements in April. To earn the Month 4 $200 bonus, in April she achieves 2000 PGV, personally sponsors John as a new Distributor with a 100 PV order, and helps Alicia (the Distributor she sponsored last month) place a 100 PV order. John and Alicia count as her required two Active Distributors.
    Example 2 (Month 1 completed in first full calendar month): Mary joins as a Distributor on January 12. She earns the Month 1 $50 bonus in February, the Month 2 $100 bonus in March, and the Month 3 $150 bonus in April. She must achieve the Month 4 requirements in May. To earn the Month 4 $200 bonus, in May she achieves 2000 PGV, personally sponsors John as a new Distributor with a 100 PV order, and helps Alicia (the Distributor she sponsored last month) place a 100 PV order. John and Alicia count as her required two active Distributors.
  2. If the NEW Distributor’s join month and first three full calendar months following his or her join month have passed and the NEW Distributor hasn’t earned a $150 Pace Setter Bonus, in his or her fourth full calendar month the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 4 requirements (2000 PGV or greater AND a minimum of two personally sponsored active Distributors in that same month) to earn a $200 Pace Setter Bonus.
    Example: Mary joins as a Distributor on January 12. She does NOT achieve the Month 1 requirement in January or February to earn the Month 1 $50 bonus, the Month 2 requirement in March to earn the Month 2 $100 bonus, nor the Month 3 requirements in April to earn the Month 3 $150 bonus. To earn the Month 4 $200 bonus, she must achieve the Month 4 requirements in May.
  3. The required volume and active Distributor count must occur in one calendar month; volume and active Distributor count from the NEW Distributor’s join month or any of his or her first three full months after the join month may not be combined.

 

1You must be bonus eligible to earn a Pace Setter bonus, which requires you to place your own 100 PV personal order in the month you would qualify for the bonus.

1. New Distributors may only earn Pace Setter Bonuses during their four-month qualifying time frame (Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, and Month 4) after their enrollment. The Month 1 requirement must be met in either their join month (the remaining days of the month in which new Distributors join as Distributors) OR the first full calendar month after their join month. When the Month 1 requirement is met (in either the join month or first full calendar month), the qualifying time frame starts for the remaining bonuses, which must be achieved in the three consecutive months after the month in which new Distributors achieved Month 1. If new Distributors don’t meet the Month 1 requirement in either the join month or first full calendar month, their first full calendar month shall be counted as their Month 1 and the qualifying time frame will start for the remaining bonuses on the first day of their second full month to achieve Month 2, Month 3, and Month 4 requirements.

Example: Joe joined Shaklee as a Distributor on January 23. His join month would be January. He can achieve 500 PGV to earn the $50 Pace Setter Bonus in either January (his join month) OR February (his Month 1 or first full calendar month). The month in which he achieves the Month 1 500 PGV requirement will determine the months in which he’s eligible to earn the $100, $150, and $200 Pace Setter Bonuses. Option A and Option B below explain how this works:

  • Option A: COMPLETES MONTH 1 REQUIREMENT IN JOIN MONTH (JANUARY): If Joe achieves 500 PGV (the Month 1 requirement) in January (his join month), he earns the Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus. He would then need to meet the Month 2 requirement in February to earn the $100 Pace Setter Bonus, Month 3 requirements in March to earn the $150 Pace Setter Bonus, and Month 4 requirements in April to earn the $200 Pace Setter Bonus.
  • Option B: COMPLETES MONTH 1 REQUIREMENT IN FIRST FULL CALENDAR MONTH (February): Because Joe joined as a Distributor in January, his Month 1 (or first full calendar month) would be February. He would need to meet the requirement for Month 1 in February to earn the $50 Pace Setter Bonus, Month 2 requirement in March to earn the $100 Pace Setter Bonus, Month 3 requirements in April to earn the $150 Pace Setter Bonus, and Month 4 requirements in May to earn the $200 Pace Setter Bonus.

2. An active Distributor for the purposes of the Pace Setter Bonus Program is someone the new Distributor personally sponsors as a Distributor on or after January 1, 2021 AND who places a minimum 100 PV order in the calendar month(s) in which there’s an active Distributor(s) required to earn a Pace Setter Bonus.

3. The required volume and active Distributor count must occur in one calendar month; volume and/or active Distributors from the join month and four months after may not be combined.

Example: Amy has 300 Personal Group Volume (PGV) in her join month and 300 PGV in the month after her join month. She won’t qualify for the Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus because she didn’t achieve 500 PGV in either the calendar month in which she joined or the following full calendar month. The PGV in her join month and first full calendar month after may not be combined to qualify for the bonus.

4. Pace Setter Bonuses will be paid with normal monthly bonus cheques/commissions issued on the 15th of each month in the month following the sales activity (i.e., January qualifiers paid on February 15, etc.). Bonuses are paid when achieved, as long as that achievement is within the allowed time frame for that award.

5. If a Distributor completes the requirements for a higher award, he or she will be paid the amount that corresponds to the Pace Setter qualifying time frame he or she is in. A Distributor can only earn one Pace Setter Bonus at a time, starting with the lowest award, or the Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus, so long as he or she is meeting or exceeding the requirement for his or her current time frame month, including the minimum PGV and active Distributor requirements.

Example: If Jim achieves 2000 PGV in his first full month (Month 1), he’ll earn the Month 1 $50 bonus because his PGV is greater than the Month 1 requirement of 500 PGV. If Jim does 2000 PGV in his second full month (Month 2), he’ll earn the Month 2 $100 bonus because his PGV is greater than the Month 2 requirement of 1000 PGV. If Jim achieves 2000 PGV or more in his third full month (Month 3) but doesn’t have at least one active Distributor, he won’t earn the Month 3 $150 bonus because he doesn’t meet the Month 3 minimum requirements. If, in his final Pace Setter time frame month (Month 4), his PGV is greater than 2000 PGV and he has at least two active Distributors, he’ll earn the Month 4 $200 bonus.

6. If a Distributor does NOT qualify for an award within the specified Pace Setter time frame month for that award, he or she may still qualify for any subsequent Pace Setter award(s) as long as he or she meets the award requirements within the specified time frame month(s) of that award.

Example: Susan becomes a new Distributor in April 2021. Her PGV is 300 that month is 300 and 400 in May. She didn’t meet the requirements to earn the $50 bonus, as she didn’t have PGV of 500 or greater in either of the months she could count as her Month 1 (join month or the first full calendar month after her join month). Because she didn’t meet these requirements, she won’t be eligible to receive the Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus at any time. However, if she has PGV of 1200 in June 2021 (Month 2), she’ll earn the Month 2 $100 bonus, as she did achieve 1000 PGV during her Month 2 time frame. She’ll also remain eligible for subsequent bonuses if she completes those requirements within the allotted time frames.

7. A NEW Distributor will first be evaluated for the Pace Setter incentive during his or her join month plus his or her first four full months following the join month and may NOT begin any $21K in 2021 qualification during the Pace Setter eligibility period. Once the NEW Distributor’s Pace Setter time frame has expired, he or she may begin a $21K in 2021 qualification if he or she meets the requirements for that incentive.

Anyone who became a Shaklee Distributor prior to January 1, 2021 and had a December 2020 PGV of less than 2000 can participate in the Pace Setter Bonus program. The existing Distributor’s starting PGV target for this program will be determined based on his or her PGV in December 2020. An existing Distributor can determine his or her starting Pace Setter PGV target using the following criteria:

  • December PGV was 0–499 – Starting Pace Setter PGV target is 500 PGV1
  • December PGV was 500–999 – Starting Pace Setter PGV target is 1000 PGV2
  • December PGV was 1000–1499 – Starting Pace Setter PGV target is 1500 PGV + 1 active Distributor3
  • December PGV was 1500–1999 – Starting Pace Setter PGV target is 2000 PGV + 2 active Distributors4

The existing Distributor will have the month of January 2021 to achieve his or her starting Pace Setter target, and one full month after January to achieve each subsequent Pace Setter Bonus target he or she may be eligible to earn. See scenarios outlined in the tables below for each of the existing Distributor starting PGV targets.

Pace Setter Bonus $200

If existing Distributors who are eligible to earn more than one Pace Setter bonus miss a target for one bonus, they’re still able to earn the next bonus(es) as long as they complete the requirements within the specified time frame.

Example: Joe joined Shaklee as a Member in July 2019 and upgraded to Distributor in January 2020. In December 2020, Joe’s PGV was 1200. His starting Pace Setter PGV target for the Pace Setter Bonus program would be 1500 PGV. Joe would need to achieve 1500 PGV in January 2021 with at least one new active Distributor to earn the $150 Bonus. If he didn’t complete the minimum requirement for January, he would have the month of February to achieve the next Pace Setter target of 2000 PGV with at least two new active Distributors to earn the $200 bonus and complete the Pace Setter Bonus program.

All other rules for new Distributors participating in the Pace Setter Bonus program also apply to existing Distributors participating in the Pace Setter Bonus program:

  1. The required volume and active Distributor count must occur in a one calendar month; volume and/or active Distributors from the join month or any of the four months after may not be combined.
  2. Bonuses will be paid with normal monthly bonus/commissions issued on the 15th of each month in the month following the sales activity (i.e., January qualifiers are paid on February 15, etc.). Bonuses are paid when achieved, as long as that achievement is within the allowed time frame for that award.
  3. If a Distributor completes the requirements for a higher award, he or she will be paid the amount that correlates to the month he or she is in during the Pace Setter Bonus program. A Distributor can only earn one Pace Setter Bonus at a time, starting with the lowest award of $50 (or his or her first eligible Pace Setter target bonus), so long as the Distributor is above the minimum PGV requirement for the month including the active Distributor requirement.
  4. If a Distributor does NOT qualify for an award within the specified time frame, he or she may still qualify for any other Pace Setter award as long as the Distributor meets the requirements within the specified time frame.
