In this article I explain 2019 Karatbars International Compensation Plan in easy language.
I describe the two main ways to get paid in Karatbars — Direct Commission and Dual Team Bonus. (Keep in mind that you can get paid in 7 ways in Karatbars).
Remember, that all Karatbars prices are in euros and by default you get paid in euros. But you can also choose to get paid in Bitcoin, gold or gold products.
Whether you are already registered with Karatbars or not, this article will help you understand the two main ways to get paid in Karatbars.
Read the explanation below and watch the video for additional clarification.
In this video, Brian McGinty explains all 7 ways to get paid with Karatbars.
Skip to 10.44 min [until 22.00 min] where he explains Direct Commission and Dual Team Bonus.
2 main ways to get paid: Dual Team Bonus and Direct Commission
There are two (2) main ways you can get paid. You can call it a Dual Team Compensation plan.
To participate in the Dual Team, you need to buy a Business Package.
There are four (4) different Business Packages. Below I list the packages and their November 1, 2019 prices.
Bronze Business Package — costs €150
Silver Business Package — costs €707.22
Gold Business Package — costs €1509.44
VIP Business Package — costs €3041.66
Note: Cost of packages fluctuates slightly with gold prices because there is a little bit of gold inside each package.
Before going further:
There are five (5) other ways you can get paid with Karatbars. But the bulk of commissions comes from these two.
Also, you CAN earn commissions as a free affiliate (without buying a Business Package). To have regular commissions, people in your team need to purchase gold and other Karatbars products on the regular basis.
Okay, back to the Dual Team Compensation plan:
First of all, when somebody you introduce to Karatbars decides to join the company, whether they want to register as a customer or affiliate, they would need your Karatbars referral link. The easiest thing to do is to email them your referral link.
Find your referral links in your Karatbars backoffice (or Karatgold backoffice; depending what you are promoting).
Then you have to decide where you want to put them. There are two options. You can put them on your left leg or on your right leg (Screenshot #1).
Karatbars has a dual system
Note, your left and right leg is a dual system.
It’s not a binary system as in regular multi-level marketing.
The difference? Accumulated units never flush — they stay there until you are paid on them!
Basically, being a Karatbars affiliate in its core means doing network marketing. And like in all network marketing, you are compensated when people in your team purchase products.
In Karatbars, currently, the products are business packages, profit packages, gold cards, cashgold, gold-backed cryptocurrency (KCB and KBC), blockchain phone, blockchain laptop, gold coins, and even… gold-based skincare (some contain silk and caviar, oh dear!).
Now, every single product in Karatbars worth a certain number of units. How many units, depends on the nature of the item.
One of two ways you get compensated in Dual Team is based on the units that you accumulate. It’s called a Dual Team Bonus.
The second way you get compensated in Dual Team is based on packages bought by people who were sponsored by you personally OR by your team. This, in turn is called a Direct Commission.
1st way to get paid: How do you get a Dual Team Bonus?
Simple. Every time when you have 50 units on one leg and 25 units on the other, you get a Dual Team Bonus.
Doesn’t matter which leg, left or right.
The amount of commissions you get for a single Dual Team Bonus depends on the status of your Business Package (Screenshot #2 below).
If you have:
Bronze Package — your Dual Team Bonus is €40,
Silver Package — your Dual Team Bonus is €50,
Gold Package — your Dual Team Bonus is €60,
VIP Package — your Dual Team Bonus is €80.
Note: At anytime, you can upgrade to a higher package and commissions will be adjusted accordingly.
2nd way to get paid: How do you get a Direct Commission?
This one is even simpler.
Every time you or someone in your team sponsors a new person and they buy a Business Package, you get a commission on a package that they buy (Screenshot #3).
Note: You receive a Direct commission on ANY package that they buy (it doesn’t have to be a Business Package). For your knowledge, Karatbars offers different packages.
You get 10% of their package if you sponsor them directly (they are in your first level).
You get 3% of their package if somebody in your second level sponsors them.
You get 2% of their package if somebody in your third level sponsors them.
Okay, now, to make sense of everything I just talked about, I provide a real-life example below.
Real-life example: How to get a Dual Team Bonus and Direct Commission
Let’s assume you just bought a Gold Business Package.
First, you sponsor a relative
Then you spoke to one of your distant relatives who was thinking about having his own business for a long time.
When you told him about Karatbars he jumped right in. He decided to start with a Gold Business Package as well (see Diagram #1).
You choose to put him on your left leg.
Look at the Diagram #1, Gold Package is worth 50 units. So, you get 50 units on your left leg.
Plus, you get 10% of his Gold Package because you sponsored him personally (he is in your first level). Today (November 1, 2019), Gold Package costs €1509,44. So, just multiply €1509,44 by 0.10 (10%), which equals €150.9.
Thus, your Direct Commission is €150.9.
Then you sponsor a colleague
In a week, you find a former colleague who buys a Silver Business Package and five 1-gram gold cards (see Diagram #1).
You put her on your right leg.
Silver Package is worth 20 units. So, you get 20 units on your right leg.
You also get 10% of her Silver Package. Today, the price of Silver Package is €707.22. So, you Direct Commission is €707.22 x 0.1= €70.7.
Remember, she also bought five 1-gram gold cards. Each 1-gram gold card is 1 unit. So you get 5 units.
In total (for a Silver Package and five 1-gram gold cards) you get: 20 units + 5 units = 25 units. So, altogether, now, you have 25 units on your right leg.
A total from your relative and colleague
Altogether, from your relative and colleague, you have 50 units on your left leg and 25 units on your right leg.
This is a Dual Team Bonus! Since you have a Gold Business Package, your Dual Team Bonus commission is €60 (see Diagram#1).
Notice, when you ‘cycle’, you are left with 0 units on your left leg and 0 units on your right leg.
In total, your Dual Team Bonus commissions from sponsoring these two people are €60.
In total, your Direct Commissions from sponsoring these two people is €150.9 + €70.7= €221.6
Now, you final total (Dual Team Bonus commissions and Direct Commissions) from sponsoring these two people is €60 + €221.6 = €281.6
Then your colleague sponsors her best friend
In a couple days your colleague sponsors her best friend! (see Diagram #1)
She registers this friend as a customer on her right leg.
This friend immediately buys one 5-gram gold card. A 5-gram gold card is worth 3 units.
So your colleague gets 3 units on her right leg.
And YOU get 3 units on your right leg as well! And this happened without your involvement!
In other words, when anyone in your team (downline) sponsors someone, you get the same amount of units as a person who sponsors them. This is the ultimate beauty of Karatbars compensation plan!
Ideally, as long as you sponsor a couple active people (aka leaders), and they sponsor a couple active people and so on, you will start to accumulate units on the regular basis without being directly involved.
However, please keep in mind that it’s in an ideal world. Because not everyone in your team will find active people. And some people won’t find any active people at all.
In the end, the more people you sponsor personally, the better. Even better, if you help those in your team (downline) find their people.
Just a reminder, Dual Team Bonus and Direct Commissions you earn are put on Karatbars Mastercard every Friday.
Depending on your efforts and how positive your mindset is, the time it takes to find people who understand the value of gold AND at the same time want to make money with Karatbars will vary.
If you are planning to make money with Karatbars I suggest you start now! I mean start now looking for those who like gold and want to run their own business. It can be your colleagues, friends, relatives, acquaintances, strangers on the street — anyone.
If you have some background in network marketing, sales or any other marketing — that would certainly help.
If you don’t have any background in these, don’t worry, because success is 80-90% mindset (psychology) and only 20-10% skill!
Always remember, if you believe you can make good money with Karatbars, go ahead and register for your affiliate account now.
Because if you have a strong desire to make Karatbars your main source of income, you WILL make it no matter what.
