UPDATED 2020: Am currently still a presenter but not marketing the products or actively sponsoring any longer. If you need a hands-off sponsor then I’m your gal.
Understanding Younique Presenter Levels & Commissions
Younique Glossary of Terms (to help with the following post)
- Presenter: effectively Younique’s name for a distributor or sales rep
- Sponsor: a presenter who recruits other team members to join their Younique team
- PRS: Personal Retail Sales (what a presenter personally sells each month)
- Qualified First Level: A presenter who sells 125 PRS in a rolling 3 month period
- Company Wholesale Sales (CWS): What a presenter and their entire downline sells each month
- Circle Sales: This is a presenter’s and his or her downline’s sales – excluding any of their Green status or higher and their downlines (those people have “spun off” in essence)
- Wholesale Sales: 75% of Retail Sales. The remaining value of the original sales amount after Retail Royalties/Commission have been deducted
- Qualified First Generation Elite:
What is Younique? Launched in Utah by a sister and brother, Younique is a direct sales company that sells naturally-based makeup, skin care and beauty products – direct to its customers.
The presenter is paid their commissions approximately three hours after every sale through their website.
Younique’s compensation plan features a colourful-tiered-ladder of eight levels — starting with White and going all the way up to the top spot which is Black Status.
This post will outline the eight Younique presenter levels, and the commission levels of each level. Commissions range from 20% at entry level – up to a maximum of 30%.
We never earn more than 30% commissions – that’s the max for Younique presenters.
Reminder that PRS stands for “Personal Retail Sales”
Entry Presenter: Younique White status – (20% commission)
Every Younique presenter starts earning 20% commission from day one. So from your very first order placed through your website (either by you or someone else), you will receive your 20% commission – approximately three hours after the sale…That’s every_single_time!!
That’s amazing isn’t it? It’s so fun to receive those payment notifications like clockwork!
Entry Presenter: Younique Yellow status – (25% commission)
Once you sell 1000 PRS (personal retail sales) which equates to $1000 or roughly £690 (depending on exchange rate), you will become a Yellow level presenter.
You reach Yellow all on your own sales – and can take as long as you need to reach it. I aimed to reach it ASAP as I wanted that pay-bump up to 25%.
Exemplary Presenter: Younique Pink status – (25% commission)
Unfortunately, you can’t move up passed Yellow until you start to build a team. So if you have no interest in recruiting team members, you will only ever get to Yellow, and never be able to go beyond that.
But if you do want to progress up the ladder, then your next stop after Yellow will be Pink.
To reach pink you have to sell 250 PRS personally – plus you and your company needs to sell 2000 PRS (you can do that all on your own or with your team), and finally you need one qualified presenter.
A qualified first level presenter is someone who has sold their 125 PRS that month. So every month that you hope to hit Pink, you need to do that PRS amount, have a qualified presenter and sell at least 2000 in company-wide sales.
Exemplary Presenter: Younique Blue status – (25% commission)
Younique Blue status is effectively double that of Pink. You need to still sell your own 250 PRS, but your sales need to be 4000 Company Wide Sales, and this time you have to have two qualified first-level presenters.
Elite Presenter: Younique Green status – (30 % commission)
Younique Green status is the next level up the Younique presenter ladder. Sadly (for me anyway), it’s not just double the Blue figures, it’s a lot more than that!
The good news is that now you’re earning 30% commission on sales – which is the top level a Younique presenter can make in commissions as I stated above.
To reach Green level with Younique, you need to personally sell 500 PRS, your company must sell 10,000 PRS (that’s about £6950!! at the moment) and have three qualified first level presenters.
In addition to all the above, you also have to have 2000 in circle wholesale sales*.
This is where I’ve always started to get totally confused, I’ll be honest with you.
* Wholesale amounts are calculated at 75% of the Personal Retail Volume of all commissionable sales.
Frankly, I am rather in awe that anyone can get to Green – let alone beyond it…
Elite Presenter: Younique Orange Status (30% commission)
Rising up from Green level status, it’s up now to Orange level. To reach Orange level with Younique, you need sell the same 500 PRS as the previous Green stage, but as a company you need to have 20,000 in company wide sales. Again three qualified first-level presenters, 4000 circle wholesale sales and 1 first generation elites. So someone in your company needs to hit green before you can promote up.
Man that’s a doozy – in my opinion.
Exclusive Presenter: Younique Purple status (30% commission)
The penultimate level with Younique is Purple level.
You also move up to “exclusive level” from “elite” status presenter.
To reach Purple, you need to sell your 500 PRS still, and your company needs to sell 40,000. You have to have four qualified first level presenters, 6000 circle wholesale sales, and this time you have to have two first generation elites.
Exclusive Presenter: Younique Black status (30% commission)
The ultimate level to reach as a Younique Presenter is Black Status.
To become a Younique Black level presenter you have to be the ultimate rockstar. You still need to sell your personal 500 PRS. Your whole company has to sell 80,000. You need four qualified first level presenters. The circle wholesale sales need to reach 10,000, and if that weren’t enough you need to have FOUR first generation elites.
I thought it would be interesting to know exactly how many Younique women (and men) reach Black status with the company.
I suspect, as a total guess, for every one Black Status Younique Presenter, there are twenty or thirty thousand who aren’t. Don’t quote me on that. I’m sorta making it up. At the time of writing this post there are currently 371,621 presenters around the world and 69 are currently an active Black Status presenter. So yeah, only the best of the best make it that far.
To add to that, there are now three levels of Younique Black status….and you can even earn a car incentive…
Well that about covers it. I hope that answered your questions. If not feel free to message me if you have them. I’ll do my best to answer any.
Incidentally, I am currently BLUE and aiming for GREEN, but to be honest with you, I think I’d be content to remain at Green level for the foreseeable.
Need a sponsor?
Interested in joining Younique? If you’re just needing a hands-off sponsor then feel free to join my team. No need to message me first…By the way, no it doesn’t benefit me by joining my team at all. Because I am not selling products anymore, I don’t reach a level of PRS that would allow me to make ANY money on my downline.
