Additional educationalmaterials will be available via MyBiz.Are there changes I can make to my business to maximize the NewFAA Commission program?The most effective way to maximize the new program is to growyour Core Plan income by focusing on building your business inways that are rewarded by the Core Plan – a balance of width anddepth. The new FAA program also more directly rewards you fordeveloping downline leaders. For specifics on how to maximize theprogram for your own businesses, contact your local Amway Salesteam.How will the New FAA Commission Program enhance participationas compared to the original program?Because the new program rewards you for development of leaders indepth in a way that the original FAA does not, we believe that moreAmway Direct Sellers will qualify for this new program – not less.What is a balanced and sustainable business to Amway?A balanced, sustainable Amway business is one that meets theAmway Direct Seller’s expectations for success, demonstratessustainable growth and is built with a balance of width and depth.The width and depth equilibrium is achieved by balancing a focuson sales to customers with sponsoring others to do the same.Healthy businesses adhere to Amway’s Rules of Conduct, FoundersFundamentals and Values.HOW DOES IT WORK?What qualifies me to receive a payment from the new FAAProgram?There are three criteria to qualify for the new FAA Commission. Youmust be a DHAC**, have at-least 4 in-market Founders Platinumteams and at-least 20 FAA points. In addition, as is the case withthe original program, you must be in good standing.What is Monthly Core Commission?Monthly Core Commission is made up of Performance Commission(both Personal and Sales), Enhanced Sales, Group Developmentand Leadership (includes Leadership, International Leadership andFoster Commissions).Will the 2% Leadership Commission enhancement count?Yes, the 2% additional amount added to the Core Plan via theLeadership Commission will be included.How can an annual program be based on monthly Commissions?All monthly Core Plan Commissions from #1 and #2 businesseswill be combined together on a monthly basis. This will then beaveraged across the twelve months of the performance year tocalculate an average monthly Core Plan income. The multipliercalculated at the end of the year will be applied against thataverage monthly Core Plan income.Why does the New FAA require more points to participate than theOriginal FAA?The New FAA points are calculated differently than points in theOriginal FAA program points are now ADDITIVE, meaning theyinclude more depth than before – a big change over the currentFAA program. Leaders can help earn more points for themselvesand their upline (up to 6 F. Platinums and a total of 30 points ineach team) by stabilizing their own downline leaders and buildingsustainable depth.Are DHACs** and EHACs* also counting as Founders Platinums?Each leader down a team will count once at the highest qualifiedaward level. The EHAC or DHAC must also have a FoundersPlatinum pin to count. A DHAC** will earn an upline three points intotal.*EHAC Emerald Higher Achievement Commission **DHAC Diamond Higher Achievement Commission
?What is a Founders Platinum team?Q12 teams do not count for the New FAA Commission. Each teammust now have a Founders Platinum pin within them to count asboth a Founders Platinum team and New FAA Points. An EHAC orDHAC must also have a Founders Platinum pin to count.Why is Amway limiting the number of Founders Platinum pointsper team to six?For two reasons. First, the New FAA Commission is meant toreward our most accomplished leaders for the development ofdownline leaders. The requirement to develop leaders beyondFounders Platinum to maximize points within a team is meant toencourage leaders to continue to develop their downlines beyondFounders Platinum. Second, this requirement is meant to guardagainst manipulation of volume and Founders Platinumqualifications.Why does Amway require #2 businesses to be at the EHAC* levelto count depth?The New FAA Commission Program is designed to reward activeand direct market involvement – not merely a position in the line ofsponsorship. Founders Platinum is required to earn any points.With the uncapping of potential from #2 businesses, the EHAC*requirement was included to ensure that leaders who were directlyinvolved in developing leaders within a market would be rewardedfor their efforts.Why aren’t Internationally sponsored Founders Platinum teamscounted toward the width requirement?The New FAA Commission Program was designed to reward activeand direct market involvement, therefore it only includes #1 and#2 businesses when measuring width and depth. Internationallysponsored teams will continue to benefit Amway Direct Sellersthrough the Core Plan, and the International LeadershipCommission generated by these teams will contribute to the CorePlan portion of the new FAA calculation.Is 150 points the maximum the program has, or can I earn more?The multiplier schedule is maximized at 12 Founders Platinumteams and 150 points. The multiplier will continue to apply againstthe average monthly Core Plan Income, even as that grows beyond12 teams or 150 points.What is a Super team?A Super team is a qualified Founders Platinum team with 30 pointsdownline of a leader. In order to enter into the Super teamsschedule and receive the Super teams Commission, a leader mustearn the maximum multiplier (750%) and have a minimum of twoSuper teams.How can there be unlimited potential when there is a maximummultiplier of 750%?There is no limit to a leader’s earning potential in the New FAAprogram. While the multiplier is limited to 750%, there is no limitto the amount of monthly core Commission a leader can earn. Inaddition, as leaders reach the 750% multiplier, they are eligible foranother unlimited portion of the New FAA program, the Super teamCommission. There is no cap to the number of Super teams thatan Amway Direct Seller can create and get paid for and it is not aone-time Commission a leader can get paid each and every yearthe team qualifies with 30 FAA points.Why are points assigned to Founders Platinum, EHAC*, DHAC**and not other award levels?The original FAA program rewards leaders for the development ofFounders Platinum, EHAC* and DHAC** teams. The new FAAprogram will follow the same general principle.Why does Amway require 2 Super teams in order to receive Superteam payments?The minimum threshold of two Super teams ensures that theleader has demonstrated that they can build their own Super team,not simply benefit from a Super team built by their downline.Are Super team payments replacing OTCAs? Why are they not amore lucrative amount?Similar to OTCAs, the Super team Commission is intended toreward our most exemplary and accomplished leaders for theirimpressive leadership. However, Super team payments are not areplacement for OTCAs, but are a reward for building sustainableteams and can generate income for the upline year afteryear. There is no limit to the number of Super teams a leader canbuild and no limit to the number of years a leader can earnpayments from those teams. This results in a smoother, morereliable income stream rather than a one-time payment.Is there any concept of jumping levels? (vs. jump 2 levels and upfor FAA 40 & up OTCA)No. However, all qualifications that contribute to your point totalwill be subje
