April Ongoing Title Benefit
Flex points for the April ongoing title benefit will be deposited in your Flex Account when April commissions are finalized. The number of flex points you will receive depends on the title you hold on April 30 (see below). That means if you are close to advancing in title, you have a little over a month to get there before your April ongoing title benefit is calculated. You can do it!

Payout Factor Process Changes (CANADA ONLY)
We’ve recently been evaluating the process for determining and updating the CSV and payout factors. Specifically, we’ve been looking at the update schedule for these factors (which includes an annual evaluation of CSV factors and a quarterly evaluation of payout factors) and the criteria used to determine each factor. As we’ve considered the potential disruption that factor changes might cause in your business, we have decided to reduce the frequency of payout factor adjustments to once per year. In addition, in reviewing the criteria used to determine these factors, we have decided to adjust the payout factor criteria to more closely align with the criteria we use to determine the CSV factor, including product prices, shipping, taxes, exchange rates, fair market value for products, cost of doing business in each country, etc. Aligning the schedule for evaluating both the payout factor and CSV factor to once per year will also help us better align these criteria.
Going forward, we will evaluate both the CSV and payout factors near the end of each Stampin’ Up! year, and any changes will take effect on October 1.* We will announce these annual changes at least 30 days before they take effect. This new update schedule is effective immediately, which means there will be no changes to payout factors in April or July this year. The next potential change will take place with the new Stampin’ Up! year on October 1, 2018.
We hope these modifications will be beneficial to you and your business.
*Please note: If significant circumstances in a market occur during a Stampin’ Up! year, including changes to GST or VAT in your country, we may also adjust the CSV and/or payout factors at that time.
