"Cascading Payment" Feature Added to AutoShip Program

MonaVie Autoship Program
MonaVie is pleased to announce a new enhancement to the AutoShip program—"cascading payment" capability.*

With this new feature, you now have the option to add additional credit cards or payment methods to your AutoShip account as a backup to those occasional, unanticipated moments when your primary payment method does not process. This will ensure successful fulfillment of your AutoShip orders every time.

How to manage the "cascading payment" feature:

• Access your Virtual Office.
• Click "Manage AutoShip" (left-hand navigation).
• Click "Add Payment Method."
• Enter your additional payment method information.
• Click "Save."

You can enter a maximum of three unique payment methods. Also, be sure to use the "up" and "down" arrows to the left of each payment method in order to specify which sequence you prefer to have your listed payment methods used.

MonaVie Commissions and the "cascading payment" feature
For those markets where MonaVie Commissions is offered, we are thrilled to add the option to list MonaVie Commissions as a primary or backup payment method in your AutoShip account. This allows you to use the funds in your MonaVie Commissions account to pay for your AutoShip orders, thus avoiding the extra time and expense of transferring funds to your personal bank account and then using those funds to purchase products.

We strongly encourage all distributors who have access to MonaVie Commissions to select this option as your primary AutoShip payment method, as we believe this will result in significant cost and time savings. (Please note that if you select MonaVie Commissions as your primary payment method, you will need to select a minimum of one credit card as a secondary payment method. MonaVie meets all PCI compliance requirements, and therefore, any credit card information you provide is strictly confidential and secure.)

Ensure your AutoShip orders arrive as expected by taking advantage of this new feature today!

MonaVie's Newest Blue Diamond—Gail Boone

Congratulations to Gail Boone from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, on achieving the rank of Blue Diamond Executive. Here's what she had to say on reaching this impressive milestone...

"The road to Blue Diamond was awesome! The greatest part of the journey has been working with great people and helping others become successful.

"What helped me become successful in MonaVie are my strong beliefs in the product, the industry, and MonaVie as a company. Also, staying focused, setting goals, following the system, and doing the work brought me success.

"My 'reason' kept me focused. I believe that if you don't have a strong enough 'reason,' the negatives in this business will kill you. Your 'reason' needs to be bigger and more powerful than you or money because it will motivate you to do things that you don't always want to do. It will also help you give up the useless time wasters that many of us do daily. Turn off the television, and turn on your telephone!

"You must set goals. Goals need to be written down, or they are just wishes. Review your goals daily, and revise them regularly. They are your map to success. How do you know which way to go without a map?

"Follow the system. Why reinvent the wheel? There are many millionaires in MonaVie. If you want to be one, follow one. There are no shortcuts in this business. You need to work at your business daily. The more people you talk to and pour juice for, the greater your chances for success will be. Be productive every day.

"I've spent almost two decades in this industry, and I can say that MonaVie is very unique because of the incredible founders and management team. Their drive for excellence has spilled down through the entire MonaVie corporate office and into the field. MonaVie believes its distributors are its most important asset. This is clearly demonstrated by the way they treat and reward distributors—5,000 percent better than the rest!

"Keep your pipeline full, and work productively every day. Whether it is 15 minutes or eight hours, take advantage of every opportunity to share the product and the business. Be enthusiastic, and have fun. Don't try to be an expert. Find out who is open to becoming healthier and wealthier today. Lastly, work local; think global!"

Unauthorized Asia Activity: A Reminder Regarding Pre-Market Policies

On September 24, 2009, MonaVie sent a communication to all MonaVie Ruby Executives and above reminding them of our policies regarding pre-market activity, with special emphasis given to several of our Asian markets.

As our business strategies develop, it has become much more evident to us how critical a role such compliance plays in protecting the enormous business opportunities in this region of the world. With that, MonaVie desires to restate its position to vigorously enforce its existing pre-market policies and procedures and eliminate any tolerance for unapproved pre-market activity that may put this opportunity for all at significant risk.

Therefore, as a follow up to previous communications regarding MonaVie's international expansion efforts and its policies governing distributor pre-market activities, we encourage all distributors to give careful attention to the following:

1.    By contract, distributors of MonaVie are not allowed to conduct any pre-market activity in any market that does not appear in the list of authorized countries appearing in the MonaVie Virtual Office ("Enroll a Distributor" page). Such activities would include the importation and distribution of non-registered product, the false enrollment of distributors, meetings, opening of sales offices, etc.

2.      While MonaVie has expressed an intent to open certain markets, under no circumstances are distributors to engage in the activities listed above in Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, The People's Republic of China (PRC), or in any other country which does not appear in the Virtual Office drop down window. The countries in the drop down menu represent the only authorized and acceptable markets for conducting business.

Protecting Distributors and Future Business Opportunities
From time to time, MonaVie becomes aware of distributors who, in an effort to get a head start, bypass the established policies and procedures and as a result put the company and our future growth opportunities at risk. Such is currently the case in several markets MonaVie intends to establish future business opportunities.

In order to protect our loyal distributors who adhere to the policies, MonaVie will have no choice but to severely discipline—up to and including termination—those found in violation of such policies.

Unauthorized Activity in Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan
Currently, non-authorized enrollments are occurring in Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Please note that MonaVie will not honor such distributorships when the company is officially introduced in these two markets. All such distributors will be required to start over, reenroll, or even be barred from enrollment in that country as a distributor of MonaVie. Thus, they will have no advantage over other distributors.

In addition, distributors who are found owning/sponsoring a MonaVie store or found importing non-registered product or found conducting unauthorized open/public meetings (more than 4-5 people) in these markets will be disciplined, up to and including termination of their distributorship. MonaVie will not tolerate such abuse of its policies to which each distributor has agreed to keep and follow.

Today, we are putting such distributorships on notice. We will not permit such distributorships to jeopardize the opportunity for the many who are operating with integrity, nor will we permit a few distributors to jeopardize the international opportunity that awaits those who are willing to keep our policies and procedures.

Stay Committed; New Opportunities Await
Truly, the MonaVie opportunity could not be brighter or more exciting!  The opportunities ahead of us are enormous. Nonetheless, each distributorship must operate with appropriate constraint and patience, and trust that MonaVie is applying every resource to ensure a successful and timely opening of each new market.

Once again, we thank each of you in advance for all you do, for all you will do, and what you will encourage others to do to ensure the long-term success of these future business opportunities for all distributors. As always, we honor your leadership and celebrate the tremendous influence for good you are to the many you come in contact with each day.

We wish you all the very best!
