Do Affiliates who were previously Fellows get a chance at hitting Strong Start 1?
An Affiliate who purchases the "Virtual Kit" and creates a brand new account has the opportunity to earn Strong Start. If a previous Fellow downgrades to an Affiliate and does not opt into the Virtual Kit purchase, they will not be able to earn Strong Start.
If a Fellow downgrades to an Affiliate, does that mean their 6 month PV requirement for earning $500 starts over?
A Fellow that downgrades to an Affiliate account DOES NOT start over their 6-month requirement for $500 in PV every 6 months. The Fellow or Affiliate will need to maintain $500 in cumulative PV within a rolling 6-month period or will proceed to go Inactive. This policy is the same if an Affiliate upgrades to a Fellows account (cumulative $500 in sales over a 6-month rolling period).
If a Fellow becomes an Affiliate do they get a new join date?
No. The join date will remain the same. It will also remain the same if an Affiliate becomes a Fellow.
