Detailed Fluz Compensation Plan

Attachment to the Fluz Agreement for Independent Fluz Associates

Effective: November 15, 2018


Fluz is dedicated to creating the most powerful buying collective in the world, delivering on a promise to provide maximum cash back earnings and rewards to our members. Our unique network structure and compensation plan reflects this dedication, as it gives every Independent Fluz Member an equal and powerful opportunity for success.

 

Your Cash Back App Is Now Your Business

 

Could owning a business and creating an income stream really be this simple?  

With Fluz, you are standing at the ground floor of a one-of-a-kind disruptive business. We’re disrupting the $80 billion cash back market and the $190 billion direct selling industry by reinventing how you shop, earn cash back rewards and build a network to earn even more. An all new model that not only rewards members for their everyday purchases, it rewards you and members in your network for all of the purchases in the Fluz App.

 

Program Overview

At Fluz, we’ve created a community that places purchasing power in your hands and rewards the community for loyalty for their everyday purchases. We negotiate a discount for everyday purchases at thousands of national and local merchants, we reward our members for their purchases and then share that reward with the community through the member’s referral network.

Why just earn on your own purchases when you can put the power of the community in your wallet and earn cashback on your purchases, the purchases of your network and the friends, family and others you invite. Through the power of the Fluz Member Network and the Fluz Compensation Plan, Fluz Members are able to earn many times more than any other cash back program. Fluz members are also able to earn additional rewards by participating in our referral bonus program, earning badges and completing challenges.

 

Membership & Fees

A Fluz Membership is absolutely free. With your membership, you have unlimited access to the Fluz App, the ability to earn cash back rewards from your purchases and the opportunity to build your own network to increase your earnings with rewards from all of the purchases of members in your network, whether you invited them or not.

 

Fees

At Fluz, we have a different philosophy than most income or business opportunities you’ve been exposed to. We believe in value of our business model and don’t look to unnecessary fees and burdensome requirements to generate revenue. Our strict no fess philosophy means there are no fees to join and there are no fees to participate in our income opportunity. Simply use the App, invite others and earn cash back on your network.

 

Membership Status

There are two types of Fluz Membership status

 

Fluz Member

A Fluz Member is anyone who has downloaded and registered an account on the Fluz App. Fluz Members have access to the Fluz App to shop and receive cash back rewards on their personal purchases. Fluz Members also have the ability to become a Fluz Network Member by inviting others and earning cash back on the purchases of those they invite and others in their network. A Fluz Member will become eligible to earn cash back on their purchases after their account has become Qualified. A Qualified Account currently requires the following:

  • Adding a Profile Image to your account
  • 1 linked credit card
  • Linked bank account (required to receive payments from Fluz)
  • Linked Social Media account(s)
  • Valid address in your account
  • Your birthday (we don’t need the year, just the day so we can send you birthday wishes and special offers).

After a Fluz Member has invited at least 2 Members who have Qualified Accounts, you will be qualified to earn from all of you invited members.

 

Fluz Network Member

A Fluz Network Member is a Fluz Member who has made the decision to build a network and met the requirements to earn cash back rewards from their network. The level of network earnings a Fluz Network Member achieves is variable and is determined by the Member’s and the Network’s activity. See the Network Earnings Requirements section for complete details and requirements.

 

Keeping Your Membership Active

For your Fluz Network Membership to remain active and to maintain your network, all we ask is that you participate in the community with a purchase from a Fluz Merchant through the Fluz App at least one time per year. Your membership will automatically renew every year as long as you have made one (1) purchase each year in the 12 months following the anniversary date of your account activation. Your account activation date is the date you activated your account in the Fluz App. Member’s must maintain Network Membership status to receive all network benefits, including the ability to earn cash back rewards from all members in your network.

If you do not renew your Network Membership, you will lose your Network Member status, however you will remain a Fluz Member. Losing your Network Member status means that you will lose many of your network benefits, including your network.  You will maintain all of the benefits of a Fluz Member, including being able to utilize the App, receive cash back from your personal purchases as well as earn cash back rewards from Members you have invited to Fluz, however you will not receive cash back from the other members in your network who you did not personally invite and these members will no longer be part of your network. That includes Members in your network that were invited by others in your network and any Members who are part of your network through autofill.

 

Reactivation – Regaining Fluz Network Membership

If you lose your Network Member status, all that is required regain Network Member status is to make a purchase within the Fluz App. Once a purchase is made, your Network Membership will be renewed and you can begin building a new network to start earning cashback from the purchases of everyone in your new network.  Remember, if you allow your Network Membership status to be lost because of non-renewal, you will lose any Network Members you have. To ensure you maintain your network, participate in the community with purchases in the Fluz App.

 

THE FLUZ NETWORK

Grow Your Network…Grow Your Income.

 

The Fluz Network structure is 2 x 15 Forced Matrix Binary.  We chose this structure because of its simplicity, ease of build out, minimal qualification requirements and fairness in how rewards are shared in the network. Everyone who activates an account on the Fluz App is inserted into the Fluz Global Network.  New members who are invited by existing members are inserted into the inviting member’s network.  Fluz Network Members are able to qualify to be rewarded for all purchases by members within 15 levels.

The Fluz compensation model, encourages and rewards members for inviting others into their network.  The first two new Members are placed immediately below you in your network, one on your left and one on your right . In the example above, you are Position 1 and your first two new Members are Position 2 and Position 3, making up your first level. Additional new Members, whether they are invited by you or someone else in your network, are then inserted in the same manner from left to right into the next open spot in your network. After each Member on a level has two people below them, the level is complete and another level is added. This process continues until all positions are filled on Level 15. Whether a person is placed in your network, close or further away, has no bearing on if or how much you can earn from their purchases. If they are in your network, you can qualify to earn can back rewards on their purchases. However, those who you personally invite to your network, you can earn an additional bonus that is equal to 6 times the regular cash back reward. Each network has a maximum number of 65,534 members.  This maximum size is purely a function of how a 2 x 15 level binary is built (see chart below).[1]

 

Members Per Level Total Members in Your Network
You 1 1
Level 1 2 3
Level 2 4 7
Level 3 8 15
Level 4 16 31
Level 5 32 63
Level 6 64 127
Level 7 128 255
Level 8 256 511
Level 9 512 1,023
Level 10 1,024 2,047
Level 11 2,048 4,095
Level 12 4,096 8,191
Level 13 8,192 16,383
Level 14 16,384 32,767
Level 15 32,768 65,535

 

The number of levels below 15 will continue to grow through the invites of your network, and each level has the ability to earn on the 15 levels below them. There is also an auto-fill mechanism.  As new members who join the Fluz community without having been invited are automatically inserted into the next open spot in the Global Network.  As a Member of the global Network, you have the ability to qualify to be the recipient of an autofill.  The auto-fill system uses the same logic as above to find the next open spot when inserting a new member into the network.

 

HOW YOU EARN

Fluz merchant partners pay Fluz a pre-negotiated cash back percentage on the pre-tax total of purchases made through the Fluz App. The majority of this cash back is allocated to the cash back compensation plan and a smaller portion is retained by the company to fund the Fluz business. The percentage varies by merchant partner and the percentage displayed in the App with the merchant offer details, is the percentage cash back that is allocated to the compensation plan. For example, if the cash back offer displayed in the Fluz App for a particular merchant partner is 4%, a $100 purchase will create $4.00 in Network Cash Back Rewards. This amount is distributed through the Fluz Network in the following 3 ways:

  1. Buyer Rewards
    The purchaser receives 42.86% of the Network Cash Back.
  2. Network Rewards
    The Member directly linked to the purchaser on each level up 15 levels will be rewarded for the purchase with a total of 42.86% of the Network Cash Back. The Network Cash Back paid on each level will be equally divided by all 15 participants rewarding each participant with 2.9% of the Network Cash Back.
  1. Inviter Rewards
    The Inviter Reward is equal to 14.29% of the Network Cash Back. The Inviter Reward is an additional bonus that rewards the Member who invited the Member who made the purchase. This reward is in addition to the Network Reward that a Network Member earns as part of the network. Adding the Inviter Reward to the Network Reward, the Inviter’s total Reward is 17.1% or 6 times the network reward. It pays to invite.

Additional Ways To Earn

Inviter Bonuses

Inviting others to join your network is not only a way to build a larger network, it has a significant impact on your earnings. In addition to the Inviter Reward, Fluz will pay a one-time fixed dollar amount as an Inviter Bonus for new invited members.  See the Network Earning Requirements & Challenges section for eligibility requirements and bonus details.

Invitee Rewards

Just as Inviting others has its rewards, so does accepting an Invite from another Member. When a Member successfully joins the network of an inviting Member, they will receive a bonus reward.  If they register directly through the app store without an invite link, they will not receive the invitee reward and the Inviter will not be eligible for the Inviter Bonus. To ensure both the inviter and the invitee are eligible to qualify for these bonuses, make sure to use your customized invite link in your Fluz App. See the Network Earning Requirements & Challenges section for eligibility requirements and bonus details.

Network Rewards Example A

A Member in your network on level 15 (green dot) makes a purchase that generates $15 in Network Cash Back Rewards. Position 15 was invited by the Member in your network in Position 6

The cash back rewards payout will be as follows:

Buyer – $6.42 (42.986

Network – $6.42 (42.86%) $0.42 (2.86%) to each of the 15 highlighted Members in yellow

Inviter Bonus- $2.14 to Member 6

Your Cash Back Reward – $0.42

 

Network Rewards Example B

A Member in your network on level 15 (green dot) makes a purchase that generates $15 in Network Cash Back Rewards. Position 15 was invited by You in Position 0

The cash back rewards payout will be as follows:

Buyer – $6.42 (42.86%)

Network – $6.42 (42.86%) $0.42 (2.86%) to each of the 15 highlighted Members in yellow

Inviter Bonus- $2.14 to Member 0

Your Cash Back Reward – $2.56

(Network Reward – $0.42 + Inviter Reward – $2.14)

If you (Position 0) are the Buyer in this example, your total cash back reward is $6.42
