See if you are having the same issue on other sites. If not contact support and let them know. Perhaps a bug report in the forum section for BUGS.

If you are having the same issue with other sites clear your browser cache. That might help.

Does it really matter if your Sponsor is not around to help? in Miscellaneous #Getting Started #Sponsor

about 1 month ago

If your sponsor is not active and engaged you will eventually be rolled up to an active sponsor. At least that is the way the system is supposed to work. I have had quite a fgew roll up to me over the past 6 months. I usually reassign them to my Diamonds.

6 month? in Compensation

3 months ago

If you promote the products at Tripleclicks and bring in new customers who buy and bid you will earn an income from the commissions generated. Use your gateway links or the affiliate toolbox found on each product to introduce new members.

Sponsor more people and you will also earn commissions from their purchases. Again use your gateway links.

The calculator gives you an example of what is possible, not what can actually happen if you put time and effort into understanding and building your business.

Read and understand the Compensation Plan -

Why do you lose all VP at the end of the month when you get status? in VersaPoints #VersaPoints

3 months ago

If you are serious about this business you will find a way to earn 1500 VP or more EVERY MONTH. Then there is no need for questions about earning and keeping VP. The whole idea is to invest in your own business and increase your earnings through duplication. Build a team and have them duplicate and they build a team and teach them to duplicate...and on..and on down the line.

Don’t rely on carry forwards or winning VP. Get into your business and invest time and funds. It doesn’t take long for your auto-delivery to get paid from your commissions when you have an active team doing the same as you are. Everything you earn above that is PROFIT. The same will happen for everyone else if you stick to The Plan

Largest Desert in Australia in Eager Zebra #Eager Zebra

3 months ago

The largest desert in Australia is NOT ‘the Outback’

Great Victoria Desert (348, is the largest. Brain Sprint you got it wrong. If it is ok for me to Google the answer then I am guessing it is OK for the people who write the questions to do the same?

Meaning of the word ‘Outback: "back-country, interior regions of Australia," 1907, Australian English, originally an adverb, "out in the back settlements”

Time Display for On going auctions in Suggestion Box #Pricebenders

Not sure what you mean. Ongoing time of auctions is indefinite as the clock resets with each bid until there is only one bidder. Hope that helps.

Earning report coming soon in Suggestion Box #Compensation #Sales

3 months ago

As a long time Team Leader I have watched my commissions decrease since 2013, with changes brought in that did nothing to encourage or give incentive to my team members. I am still here in hope that things will get better.

Perhaps the new changes will make a difference, but as always they will only make a difference if you are generating sales and sponsoring new people who are willing to invest as we do, in both time and funds where available.

Best of luck

New Comp Plan Improvements in SFI News #Compensation #CSA

Great changes and hoping this is the one that makes mathematical sense in the short term. A question though. Was there also a decrease on CV percentage for purchases by PSAs? I always thought it was 45% of CV? Now it appears to be 20% according to the new Compensation chart.

Are we giving too many CSA's away with the new Smart Start plan? in Team Building

4 months ago

Personally I think we shouldn’t be giving any CSAs away to new affiliates. They do not know the business and most will feel overwhelmed enough without throwing leadership and support roles upon them from the very first day.

CSAs are better given to those that have proved thy can sponsor and support.

Just my opinion.

IMPORTANT! Updates to our SFI Privacy Policy in SFI News

4 months ago

Hi Lori
Thank you for the information. Unfortunately the current actions taken by SFI to comply with EU GDPR fall short of requirements.

Sorry to sound negative here, but SFI MUST comply considering they are holding the data of more than 100,000 individuals. I wouldn't think the authorities will come after SFI, but an EU individual may seek compensation if there is a data breach. That is the real danger.

I believe legal counsel should be sort to ensure that SFI is in full compliance.

Can SFI try a suggestion, by making a "Gift Certificate Offer" for our New Affiliates? in Suggestion Box #Team Building

5 months ago

There is nothing more to give away.

I cannot see any point in giving them CSAs or PSAs or Cash until they have been through the training, proven they are committed and able to support and lead other people. You cannot lead without knowledge or commitment.

If people come to this business and are greeted with freebies the mindset starts to say THIS IS EASY. Better to give them your honesty, direction and leadership. That is more valuable than anything on offer. DUPLICATION was a word used here for many years. Don’t forget it.

Notifications For Rolled Up Affiliates and New PSAs on Alerts Tab in Suggestion Box

5 months ago

Hello Isabelle,
I have been here more than 12 years and have never had a problem receiving emails from SFI, I am simply NOT getting them. In my SFI inbox I get a notification the day after a new PSA has joined my team. That's up to 24 hours after they join. Not good enough.

I submitted a support ticket and received the response I expected. Not the correct answer to the issue.

To be delving around in SFi finding when new people join your team takes time away from being OUTSIDE marketing the business. My suggestions are aimed at making it simpler.

As for too many to list on the Alerts Tab, the function to VIEW MORE is already available

Best regards

Notifications For Rolled Up Affiliates and New PSAs on Alerts Tab in Suggestion Box

5 months ago

A quick suggestion for the technical team here.

If we can have Birthdays and Anniversary alerts on the Alerts tab why not have alerts for affiliates who have rolled up to a new sponsor and notification of new PSAs and CSAs?

Surely this would be a valuable addition as there are no email alerts for rolled up team members and it appears to me that the New Affiliate emails sent from SFI are not getting sent, probably due to mailserver load.

Hope to see this addition to the Alerts tab.

Why should non SFI Affiliates participate in Pricebender? in Pricebenders #Pricebenders #TripleClicks

5 months ago

I would like to see where it states that we can pay the shipping to outside USA and Canada. Perhaps I missed an update which would be unusual.

Honestly there was never a need to charge shipping.

It was free shipping worldwide on items won at Pricebenders. If you calculated the cost of Tcredits used on an auction several years ago the cost of the item AND shipping was well covered, with plenty of profit for affiliate commissions, the executive pool AND SFI. I have never understood letting Pricebenders go the direction it has.

I am not going to disclose my commissions here but I can assure you they were significantly higher than they are today and that was due to the purchase of Tcredits used at Pricebenders. I could always see that by checking my Sales Report each month.

Unfortunately the focus and enthusiasm has diminished. I hope it can be revived.

Why should non SFI Affiliates participate in Pricebender? in Pricebenders #Pricebenders #TripleClicks

5 months ago

Hello Dave
I agree. There is a lack of attractive items for non-SFI affiliates. Years ago there was a very good range of items and the earnings were higher for affiliates with their TC Customers bidding on these items. The restrictions to only ship to the USA and Canada also decreased interest and the Your Dropshipping option never showed true value against the items actually won. I even had some of my top team members quit because of the changes and nothing has been the same since then.

I was happy to see Amazon vouchers but they are far between and just not enough to maintain interest.

There needs to be more physical items that can be won by anyone, anywhere in the world. I believe we will then see more interest leading to more income.
