The compensation plan:
 ***With your first commissionable sale, you begin earning financial rewards! In order for you to remain an active Consultant, you must sell a minimum of $300 in commissionable sales each calendar quarter. 
*** As your commissionable sales increase, so do your financial rewards! There are five types of commissions you may receive. They are Base Commissions, Override Commissions, Select Product Credit Commissions, Bonus Override Commissions, and Downline Override Commissions.
  1. Base Commissions. When you make a sale, you earn a base commission of 22%. You collect this commission at the time of the sale, and then remit the remainder of the product cost to Close To My Heart. For example, if you sold and collected payment on items totaling $250, you would remit $195 to Close to My Heart and keep $55 for your compensation (excluding sales tax and shipping/handling).
  2. Override Commissions. As your monthly sales increase, so do your commissions! The more you sell in a month, the higher your override commission will be for that month, until the maximum percentage is reached. (See chart below.) Override commissions are calculated monthly and are paid by the fifteenth day of the following month.
  3. Select Product Credit Commissions. You also have the opportunity to be compensated with Select Product Credit for your sales. This credit can be redeemed for many items in the Idea Book as well as some supply items.
  4. Other benefits: Free online shopping websites, inexpensive events thru out the year, annual conventions that anyone can participate in, additional trips etc that you can earn with points  achieved from sales.
