    I got the CC# from my new consultant, but I forgot to ask for the expiration date. Does it matter, can I make one up or should I just wait until the morning?

    I think it has to match to go thru.

    Yes...it will have to match otherwise you'll end up with issues...just as if you put in the wrong #.

    From years of managing Retail....you USED to be able to make up the expiration #, and it would go through, but those days are over.

    Now - you need the correct exp. #, the correct spelling, and also make sure that if there is a middle initial on the card, that you are including that too. A card gets declined for the teeniest thing now.

    ?? I do this with almost all of my consultants, unless they are sitting right with me, then we do it together. I have them fill out a paper agreement - I give them their copy, and then I go home, and enter all of the info in online. Faster, easier, and cheaper than mailing in the agreement, and then I know it's done and done right! (and it's perfectly legal, since they've read, filled out, and received a hard copy of their agreement).

    There are differing opinions on this.....

    My NED tells us to mail the paper agreements in and NOT to do them online ourselves.

    Hmmmm, I've done it 4 times this summer/Fall - plus several times before that....I've never been questioned on it.

    Of course - I don't have an NED or an SED...a couple less levels of structure here to go through. :D

    I would have to disagree with this part. The reason being, is that clicking the button is the equivalent of the new consultant's signature. Since you're not sending the paper agreement, HO is not getting their real signature at any point. I would think that could be equated to taking the paper agreement that she signs, and filling out and copying her signature on a new one because the old one got wet. That would then not be her true signature, and in the eyes of the law that would be a forged signature.

    I know that you're trying to make it easy for the consultant, and I do agree that by having read the agreement and signed it, they have seen all the terms and have a hard copy. However, if you were to call HO and ask them, they would tell you that is not OK.

    I did listen to a recruiting CD where the consultant will have her new recruit sign the paper agreement at the show or meeting, then have her take it home and key it in on her own computer. She says that by signing her name on the paper makes it real, and doing it online is just another step. Another option of course would be to bring a laptop, and go to a place with a wireless connection.

    Don't worry :D I probably would have put my two cents in anyway.

    That's okay - I'll still do it the way I always have - The recruit knows I'm going to enter it in online, we've gone over all of the legaleze on the document, and I have a signed agreement, the recruit has a signed agreement, and if HO ever wants it, I can always send one in. Soooo, people can disagree, but I'm okay with the way I handle it. :D
