Calculating Additional Bonus Commissions:

Each unit will receive a unit specific information sheet at the Unit Kernel Training.  This sheet shows your sales from last year and your number of registered Scouts as of July 15 of this year.  We have calculated for you the number of Scouts from your unit that must sell in order to meet the 60% threshold and how much your unit must sell in order to reach the 1, 2, or 3% bonus commission levels.  We will base the % of boys selling off of the # of registered Scouts on 7/15, not the number of registered Scouts this fall.  The more boys you recruit into your unit this fall, the easier it will be to reach the 60% threshold!

Example:  If you have 10 Scouts registered in your unit on 7/15 you need 6 Scouts to sell in order to qualify for bonus commission.  If you recruit an additional 5 Scouts this fall and have 15 Scouts during September and October you still only need 6 Scouts to sell to get the bonus.
 

Online Sales Commission:

Online sales between August 1st and October 31st at 11:59:59pm will count towards your bonus commission and prize sales levels and the amount of commission you earn on online sales will be the same as what you earn on other sales.  Beginning November 1st online commission will be 30% and will not be included in calculating bonus commission or prize levels since those will already be closed out.

Note: Units must turn in their prize orders and the Unit Roster of Selling Scouts are due by November 1st in order to receive prizes, bonus commissions, or camp cash.
