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 is Eligible to Participate?

  • New Distributors that 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 Volume = 600 PGV, so John’s first target will be 1000 PGV in January to earn $100 Pacesetter Bonus.
    • See Existing Distributor charts in the “UPDATED! Downloadable Pace Setter Charts below.

*Timeframe explained: New Distributors may only earn Pace Setter bonuses during their 4-month qualifying timeframe (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 their Join Month. When the Month 1 requirement is met (in either the Join Month or first full calendar month), the qualifying timeframe starts for the remaining bonuses, which must be achieved in the 3 consecutive months after the month in which the new Distributor achieved Month 1. If a new Distributor does not 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 timeframe 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 he achieves the Month 1 500 PGV requirement in will determine the months in which he is 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 Bonuses¹, a NEW Distributor must achieve the following:

  • $50 Bonus –
    1. During Month 1 (defined above and in Rules & 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 their Join Month and their first full month after their 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.

  • $100 Bonus –

If a Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus was earned, the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 2 requirement (1000 PGV or greater) in their next calendar month to earn a $100 Pace Setter Bonus.

Example 1 (Month 1 completed in Join Month): Mary joins as a Shaklee 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 Shaklee 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.

If the NEW Distributor’s Join Month and first full calendar month have passed and they have not earned a Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus, then in their second full calendar month, 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 Shaklee Distributor on January 12. She does not achieve the Month 1 requirement in January or February, so she does not earn the Month 1 $50 bonus. To earn the Month 2 $100 bonus, she must achieve the Month 2 requirement (1000 PGV) in March.

The required volume must occur in one calendar month. Volume from their Join Month or any of their first two full months after their Join Month may not be combined.

  • $150 Bonus –

If a Month 2 $100 Pace Setter Bonus was earned, then in their next month, the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 3 requirement (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 requirement 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 Shaklee 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 requirement 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.

  • If the NEW Distributor’s Join Month and first two full calendar months have passed and they have not earned a $100 Pace Setter Bonus, then in their third full calendar month, the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 3 requirement (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 Shaklee 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 requirement in April.

The required volume and Active Distributor count must occur in one calendar month. Volume and Active Distributor count from their Join Month or any of their first three full months after their Join Month may not be combined.

  • $200 Bonus –

If a Month 3 $150 Pace Setter Bonus was earned, then in their next month, the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 4 requirement (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 requirement 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 Shaklee 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 requirement 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.

  • If the NEW Distributor’s Join Month and first three full calendar months following their Join Month have passed and they have not earned a $150 Pace Setter Bonus, then in their fourth full calendar month, the NEW Distributor must achieve the Month 4 requirement (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 Shaklee 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 requirement in April to earn the Month 3 $150 bonus. To earn the Month 4 $200 bonus, she must achieve the Month 4 requirement in May.

The required volume and Active Distributor count must occur in one calendar month. Volume and Active Distributor count from their Join Month or any of their first three full months after their Join Month may not be combined.

¹ You 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 4-month qualifying timeframe (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 their Join Month. When the Month 1 requirement is met (in either the Join Month or first full calendar month), the qualifying timeframe starts for the remaining bonuses, which must be achieved in the 3 consecutive months after the month in which the new Distributor achieved Month 1. If a new Distributor does not 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 timeframe 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 he achieves the Month 1 500 PGV requirement in will determine the months in which he is 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.
  1. 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 are Active Distributor(s) required to earn a Pace Setter Bonus.
  2. The required volume and Active Distributor count must occur in one calendar month; volume and/or Active Distributors from the Join Month and 4 months after may not be combined.

Example: Amy has 300 PGV in her Join Month and 300 PGV in the month after her Join Month. She will not qualify for the Month 1 $50 Pace Setter Bonus, because she did not 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.

  1. Pace Setter 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 paid on February 15th, etc.). Bonuses are paid when achieved, as long as that achievement is within the allowed timeframe for that award.
  2. If a Distributor completes the requirements for a higher award, they will be paid the amount that corresponds to the Pace Setter qualifying timeframe month they are 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 they are meeting or exceeding the requirement for their current timeframe month, including the minimum PGV and Active Distributor requirement.

Example: If Jim achieves 2000 PGV in his first full month (Month 1), he will earn the Month 1 $50 bonus because his PGV is greater than the Month 1 requirement of 500 PGV. If Jim again does 2000 PGV in his 2nd full month (Month 2), he will 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, then he will not earn the Month 3 $150 bonus, because he doesn’t meet the Month 3 minimum requirement.  If, in his final Pace Setter timeframe month (Month 4) his PGV is greater than 2000 PGV and he has at least 2 Active Distributors, he will earn the Month 4 $200 bonus.

  1. If a Distributor does NOT qualify for an award within the specified Pace Setter timeframe month for that award, they may still qualify for any subsequent Pace Setter award(s) as long as they meet the award requirements within the specified timeframe month(s) for the award.

Example: Susan becomes a new Distributor in April 2021. Her PGV in April is 300 and in May is 400. She did not meet the requirements to earn the $50 bonus as she did not 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 will not 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 will earn the Month 2 $100 bonus as she did achieve 1000 PGV during her Month 2 timeframe. She would also remain eligible for subsequent bonuses if she completes those requirements within the allotted timeframes.

  1. A NEW Distributor will first be evaluated for the Pace Setter incentive during their Join Month plus their first four full months following their Join Month and may NOT begin any $21K in 2021 qualification during their Pace Setter eligibility period. Once the NEW Distributor’s Pace Setter timeframe has expired, they may begin a $21K in 2021 qualification if they meet the requirements for that incentive.

Anyone that became a Shaklee Distributor prior to January 1, 2021 and their December 2020 PGV was less than 2000 can participate in the Pace Setter Bonus Program. The existing Distributor’s starting PGV target for the Pace Setter Bonus Program will be determined based on their PGV in December 2020. An existing Distributor can determine their Starting Pace Setter PGV target using the following bullet points:

  • 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 Distributor 3
  • 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 their Starting Pace Setter target, and one full month after January to achieve each subsequent Pace Setter Bonus target they may be eligible to earn. See scenarios outlined in the tables below for each of the Existing Distributor Starting PGV targets.

Starting Pace Setter PGV Target is 500 PGV (December PGV was 0-499)

Pace Setter Bonus $200

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

Example: Joe joined Shaklee as a Member in July 2019 and upgraded to a Shaklee Distributor in January 2020.  In December 2020, Joe’s PGV was 1200.  Joe’s Starting Pace Setter PGV target for the Pace Setter 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 Joe 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 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 4 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., Jan qualifiers paid on Feb 15th, etc.). Bonuses are paid when achieved, as long as that achievement is within the allowed timeframe for that award.
  3. If a Distributor completes the requirements for a higher award, they will be paid the amount that correlates to the month they are 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 their first eligible Pace Setter target bonus) so long as they are 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 timeframe, they may still qualify for any other Pace Setter award as long as they meet the requirements within the specified timeframe.
