What IS pending status?
In the event a demonstrator is short on meeting the Stampin’ Up! $300 minimum sales to renew each quarter, they will be placed in pending status. Pending status is a one month opportunity to play “catch up” on sales from the previous quarter and continue discounts and benefits for the next quarter.
While in pending, demonstrators still receive all company mailings and can place orders–continuing to enjoy Stampin’ Up! discounts and benefits.
If, at the end of the pending month, a demonstrator has not met the $300 sales minimum from the previous quarter, they will drop as a demonstrator (with no penalty). See Minimum Sales Requirement Policy in the Demonstrator Policies Manual for more information.
Stampin’ Up! quarters are January – March, April – June, July – September and October – December. Pending months follow each quarter.
Am I in pending?
You can find your demonstrator status under “My Quick Stats” on the bottom right of the demonstrator home page (see screen shot below). If in pending, the amount needed to regain active status by the end of the pending month will be listed. When in doubt on your status or sales needed, please call demonstrator support 1-800-STAMPUP.
What are MY options?
● REGAIN ACTIVE STATUS. Obtain customer orders and/or place a demonstrator order in the amount you need to regain active status by October 31, 2018. This will extend your demonstrator status through December 31, 2018.
● REQUEST A ONE-TIME STATUS EXCEPTION. You have the option to email [email protected] or call 1-800-STAMPUP (Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Support) and ask for an extension based on financial or other hardship. SU grants most of these. A status exception should be requested after you have dropped and as soon as commissions have been finalized. If you email, please be sure to add the words ‘Status Exception’ to the subject line. You will be notified of Stampin’ Up!’s decision within a few days.
● START FRESH. Drop (or resign) by emailing demonstrator support at [email protected]. You are immediately eligible to rejoin through me (or your direct upline, if it’s not me) by purchasing the $99 Starter Kit. NOTE: If you choose this option, you will be starting out as a new demonstrator by purchasing a new starter kit and will lose your title, cumulative sales totals and recruits. TIP: Be sure to download any customer information before you drop.
