First Secret - Frequently Asked Questions
What are the different designations available as a part of the Direct Seller at First Secret?
Being involved in the Direct Selling Plan of First Secret you can either be engaged as a Direct Retailer [DR] or Direct Seller [DS]. The details of the designation and the roles ascribed to them have been described as under:
- Direct Retailer [DR]: The direct retailer will be eligible to get a certain fixed percentage on the sales effectuated through them. By the use of a personalized coupon code of the DR, the sales will be tracked. All purchases using that coupon code will be attributed to the concerned DR. The DR will get a certain percentage of the sale effectuated through their coupon code. The customers using their code will also get a certain percentage of discount as per the terms and conditions applicable at that moment.
There is no minimum sale criterion or initial sale criterion on the working of a DR. They can join and self purchase the products or begin sharing the coupon code as a part of the promotion of First Secret’s products through their social media handles and other networks.
There is no minimum or maximum limit of transactions for DR. Whatever the transaction happened through their code, they will get their percentage out of it.
- Direct Seller [DS]: The DS will be able to make a network of their own by effectuating sales and making others join in the downline. The business done by the new joinee under their network as well as their own personal transactions will benefit the DS; they will get a percentage on these transactions. However, the percentage will proportionally increase based on the points earned by their network and through the volume of their personal transactions.
After joining, the DS will have to make an initial transaction of Rs.2000 to Green their ID, after which they can begin joining new people.
There is a quarterly sales criterion of Rs.5000, failing to do which for 9 months will result in the deactivation of their ID. Moreover, the commission entitlement will also be withdrawn in case the quarterly sales criterion is not met with.
What is the most common method of gaining points?
