If you do not have a direct deposit account set up with USANA, you will need to open one before you can receive commissions. Your e-wallet account will remain open until you close it or until the balance falls below the minimum requirement.

Is e-wallet secure?
Absolutely. USANA and Lightstorm are very concerned about keeping your information safe. During registration, you will be prompted to create and confirm a password and three security questions. The answers to these questions will be required to access your account or to change or reset your password.

Why am I being asked to deactivate my account?
Your e-wallet account must maintain a minimum balance to cover the monthly activity fee and transfer fees (see E-Wallet Fees for more information). If your account balance falls below this threshold, the system will prompt you to deactivate the account. If you wish to deactivate your account, follow the prompts and confirm the request. If the balance of the account is greater than fees that are due, you will be prompted to cash out the remaining balance before continuing. If the balance of the account is less than the fees that are due, the account will be reduced to a zero balance and deactivated.

What do the e-wallet fees pay for?
E-wallet is administered by a third-party service provider called Lightstorm. The fees are based on Lightstorm’s requirements and were negotiated by USANA. We do not receive these fees, nor do we benefit financially from your use of an e-wallet account.

Can I add non-USANA funds to my e-wallet account?
No. USANA e-wallet accounts do not allow for deposits from elsewhere.

How do I close my e-wallet account?
To close your e-wallet account, it must have a zero balance. Transfer your money out of e-wallet to another account, then e-mail helpdesk@lightstormglobal.com to tell them you’d like to close your account. Your message should include your USANA ID, the e-mail address associated with your e-wallet account, and your first and last name.

I have more questions. How do I contact customer service?
You may contact a customer service representative by e-mailing CustomerService@USANAinc.com or calling 801–954–7200.
