QUESTION from someone new to doTERRA: “I’m finally looking through the site to see what my orders will be this month and I keep seeing PV? Can someone explain what is that and where is there more information on it? Thanks!”
ANSWER: PV means point value. Most products have a PV. Single oils and blends tend to be $1=1PV, and other products have less points attached to them.
The points are used for 5 purposes – and most of them revolve around your LRP order (the auto-ship, Loyalty Rewards Program):
#1 – FREE STUFF: you can earn a percentage of those points that you can apply toward free products in the future. You have to spend at least 50PV each month to earn points, and you have to spend at least something EVERY month to maintain the points or they go away. Each month when you log in to adjust your order, you’ll be given options for free products within that point range (if you have 33 points, you’ll see a dropdown “choose this” for all items 33PV or less). You can save points for up to 1 year (they do expire). Starting in May, you will also earn some points for shipping costs!
#2 – EARN MONEY: You can earn commissions when you spend at least 100PV per month on an LRP. You have to have the LRP set up already in order to earn commissions when you enroll someone or they buy something through your site. No LRP = no commissions. While many people with wholesale membership choose not to do anything with the business side of things, many people enjoy some passive income after sharing doTERRA with a few friends (and others choose to actually work the business for a higher level of income). You never have to do the business in order to maintain your membership or have an LRP/earn points (see #1)
#3 – FREE PRODUCT: if you spend at least 125PV on your LRP order before the 15th of the month, you get the FREE product of the month (this month is lime). It has to be shipped prior to the 15th.
#4 – EARNINGS LEVEL: The point value of what someone spends on your site or through enrollment determines how much commission and fast start bonus you earn. There are also opportunities to earn more money when those you enroll set up an LRP of 100PV or more.
#5 – PROMOTIONS: Sometimes there’s a promotion where any 200PV order gets a freebie (right now it’s Deep Blue oil & rub free!!). There are also promotions like Spring Blossoms, where you can earn free Rose and Jasmine essential oils for sharing and enrolling people with 100+PV orders.
Make sure when you set up your order, you set it up as an LRP order, so you earn commissions and get free stuff and qualify for promotions! If you have questions, ask me or your enroller to help you set it up through your back office. You can also get more basic info here on doTERRA’s website!
