  • Company Wholesale Sales (CWS): What a presenter and their entire downline sells each month

Younique Background

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 Younique products are not sold in any stores. They are sold mostly through online channels like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Thea Newcomb Linkedin or blogs such as this one!

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)

All Younique Levels - White, Yellow, Pink, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple and BlackEvery 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.

Oh my!

Exclusive Presenter: Younique Black status (30% commission)

Aiming for Black Status - Younique by TheaThe 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…

Younique Black Level status - 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.

When I first started with Younique I was aiming for Black, thinking I’d be there in six months, but then reality sort of set in, and now I think I’d feel content with Green. At least for this year. I could always change my mind as my company grows (more than forty now!) and my teamies start promoting up too…

But for now, I’d be happy with Green. What about you?

      So yeah…sadly, every month, your sales start back at ZERO. So tomorrow you’re at a zero sum game.

      You have managed to Yellow and Fast Start though which is great. Good job! Hello bonuses and pay rise 🙂

      I do not know where you were told that 60-days figure, but you were told wrong with regards to moving up the ladder.
      I am sorry however where that time frame comes into play is for your Fast Start badge where your sales are cumulative for 60 days. Either you were told wrong or maybe got confused between the two.

      Honestly I feel your frustration. I’ve only ever been paid for as PINK a few times (I am blue) in YEARS.

      I doubt I’d ever get above blue status, to be honest with you, as there is no way I’d ever reach that PRS level on my own.

      I am really sorry but man you sound awesome and I wish you were in my downline LOL.

      That said I rarely do enough PRS to benefit from any sales from my downline. As I said it’s only happened a few times.

        This is the very reason I’ve always questioned unique. The current MLM I work for you achieve a level and as long as you continue to bring in a min amount you keep your level they don’t knock you back down to starting pay. You’ve worked hard to reach that level why would they take it away from you. We get bonuses for hitting certain amounts at each level but still paid the same commission for the level we have achieved within our team.

        • September 5, 2019 at 12:22 pm

          I don’t know what you mean? I’m blue status and have never been knocked back down as such. I am still blue – e.g. halfway up the ladder where I have been parked for years.

          Frankly, I personally think all MLMs a bit of a “much of a muchness”. In very few instances does anyone make any money at direct sales.

          Who do you do?

          I’ve been with Younique since they launched in the UK. I don’t focus on it at all anymore and probably should switch the site off. I do the bare min and just mostly buy the products I want for myself! But this blog has been running so long and much of the content is still useful to someone somewhere.

          I might be signing up for a perfume one – but not to run as a business – just because I like perfumes 🙂
