PaceSetter Program Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What are the requirements to qualify for PaceSetter and Platinum PaceSetter (both Premier and “annual”)?
A. To qualify for PaceSetter, you must have two or more new, personally sponsored Associates and/or PCs each purchase a minimum of 100 SVP (within the qualification period) and collectively generate 800 Sales Volume Points (SVP).

To qualify for Platinum PaceSetter, you must have four or more new, personally sponsored Associates and/or PCs each purchase a minimum of 100 SVP (within the qualification period) and collectively generate 1,600 SVP.

Q. What are the requirement differences between a Premier PaceSetter and an “annual” PaceSetter?
A. “Premier” status is achieved when you accomplish the PaceSetter or Platinum PaceSetter goals within your first 8 weeks as a new Associate.

PaceSetter (or “annual” PaceSetter) status is achieved when you accomplish the PaceSetter or Platinum PaceSetter goals within your first 16 weeks as a new Associate, or in subsequent years, during the eight-week qualification period that starts on your enrollment anniversary.

Q. What is the difference between “Premier” and “annual” status?
A. Premier status means you will keep your PaceSetter or Platinum PaceSetter status for your entire USANA career. The first eight weeks after enrollment is the ONLY time you can qualify as a Premier PaceSetter or Premier Platinum PaceSetter.

As an “annual” PaceSetter or Platinum PaceSetter, you will be required to requalify each year in order to maintain your status.

Q. How long do I have to qualify for Premier status?
A. Eight weeks. You may only qualify for Premier status during your first eight weeks as a new Associate.

Q. How long do I have to qualify for “annual” PaceSetter/Platinum PaceSetter status?
A. If you are a new Associate, you have 16 weeks from the time of your enrollment date to qualify as an “annual” Pacesetter or Platinum PaceSetter. Of course, if you can meet the PaceSetter requirements in your first eight weeks as a new Associate, you would qualify for Premier status.

Q. What if I fail to achieve Premier status during my first eight weeks but I have sponsored someone? Will I have to sponsor two or four entirely new Associates or PCs to qualify for “annual” status?
A. Not necessarily. Any new Associates or PCs you sponsor during your first eight weeks will also count toward your initial “annual” requirements, as long as they purchase 100 SVP worth of product.

Q. How long do I have to requalify each year? And when is the requalification period for my annual PaceSetter status?
A. As an annual PaceSetter or Platinum PaceSetter, you will have to requalify each year to maintain your PaceSetter status. To do so, you will have eight weeks from the anniversary of your enrollment date to meet the requalification requirements.

Q. I’m a Premier PaceSetter—will I ever have to requalify?
A. No. You will retain your Premier status throughout your entire USANA career.

Q. Can a Premier PaceSetter qualify as a Platinum PaceSetter?
A. Yes, but only as an annual Platinum PaceSetter. During the eight-week period immediately following your enrollment anniversary, you will have the opportunity to become an annual Platinum PaceSetter. If you do not meet the requirements, or if you fail to requalify the following year, you will still be a Premier PaceSetter.

Q. What are the requirements to requalify?
A. Whether you’re an annual PaceSetter, annual Platinum PaceSetter, or an Associate without any PaceSetter status, the qualification/requalification requirements are the same:

  • Platinum PaceSetter—Have a minimum of four new, personally sponsored Associates and/or PCs each purchase 100 SVP worth of product and collectively generate 1,600 SVP.
  • PaceSetter—Have a minimum of two new, personally sponsored Associates and/or PCs each purchase 100 SVP worth of product and collectively generate 800 SVP.

Q. How do I “finalize” my PaceSetter status?
A. Your PaceSetter status will be finalized after the latter of two dates:

  • End of the eight-week Premier PaceSetter qualification window.
  • 31 days after the purchase that brought your combined SVP total to either 800 or 1,600.

*Provided that product returns have not dropped the combined SVP below the qualifying threshold.

Q. I’ve been an Associate for several years, but have never been a PaceSetter or Platinum PaceSetter. Can I still qualify for “annual” PaceSetter status, even after all of these years?
A. Yes. Each year, starting on the anniversary of your enrollment date, you will have eight weeks to qualify/requalify as an “annual” PaceSetter or Platinum PaceSetter—no matter how long you have been with USANA.

Q. Does PC volume count toward PaceSetter qualification?
A. Yes. Like new, personally sponsored Associates, PCs must first purchase a minimum of 100 SVP (within the qualification period) worth of product to count as an “enrollment” toward the PaceSetter qualification.
All points that are generated from personally sponsored PCs and Associates will count toward PaceSetter status, but only those individuals that purchase a minimum of 100 SVP will count as one of the two or four enrollments needed to qualify.

Q. If I receive a PC Order Bonus or Celavive Bonus for an initial PC order, will that volume count towards my PaceSetter status and requalification?
A. Yes. 100% of volume will count toward your PaceSetter program and requalification. However, NOT all the volume will roll up:

  • Orders that receive a Celavive Bonus (participating markets) – 100% of the original volume will count towards your PaceSetter program and requalification. Zero actual volume will roll up.
  • Orders that receive a PC Order Bonus (participating markets) – 100% of the original volume will count towards your PaceSetter program and requalification. 70% of the volume will roll up.

Program changes to count 100% of the original volume were implemented on December 18, 2019. Before December 18, only the volume that rolled up counted.
