Ampegy Independent Representative Marketing and Compensation Plan Business Development Bonuses (Paid to Qualified IRs Only) Customer Development Bonuses (Paid to Qualified IRs Only) Check Match Bonuses (Paid to Qualified IRs Only)
Fast Start Bonuses Fast Start Bonuses are generated when a new Qualified Representative Enrolls as few as 3 Active Customer Points within the first 30 days after joining as a Qualified IR (one of those Customers can be the new QIR). There are 3 components to the Fast Start Bonus opportunity. They are as follows: 1. Fast Start 100 – You qualify to earn $100.00 when you personally Enroll 3 Submitted Customers within your first 30 days in the business, 1 of whom can be yourself. 2. Fast Start 200 – You qualify to earn an additional $100.00 (for a total of $200.00) when you personally Enroll 10 Submitted Customers within your first 30 days in the business. 3. Sponsor Fast Start– You qualify to earn $100.00 when any Qualified Representative you personally Sponsor gets his or her first 3 Submitted Customers within 30 days of joining the business.
Bonuses will never be paid based solely on the recruitment of Ampegy Independent Representatives.

With the Fast Start Bonus potential, the first activity for any Qualified IR is to seek out, find and Enroll 3 Energy Customers – this important step earns a Fast Start Bonus, as well as a Fast Start Bonus for the Qualified IR’s Sponsor. Following this activity, the next step is to Sponsor Qualified IRs to build the business and to help those Qualified IRs find their 3 Customers in 30 days. In doing so, Fast Start Bonuses are earned for the achieving Qualified IRs and you earn the Sponsor Fast Start Bonus, as well.
