In AMSOIL, your achievement levels, income qualifications, and incentives are all dependent on the sales volume that you, your accounts and your downline dealers generate during each month.
As the end of each month approaches, it is CRUCIAL that you know how much volume you've achieved so far during the month. By checking your volume, you may find that you are close to a higher achievement level. In some cases, placing a small or moderate sized order may bump you up into a higher income percentage for the month, or help you qualify for Direct Jobber or other higher levels of recognition. This can potentially mean more money in your pocket, can earn you more recognition, and may help you earn other incentives.
All of the requirements for achievement levels are based on "Commission Credits." In general, each quart of oil is roughly equal to 5 Commission Credits. To check the exact Commission Credits earned per product, you can view the g-3501 Dealer Profit List in your dealer zone.
Basic Requirements for Achievement Levels
If you are close to one of the achievement levels, I highly recommend that you get in touch with your sponsor to discuss the situation.

How to Check Your Volume
The easiest way to check your volume is to log in to your dealer zone at www.amsoil.com
- Once you are logged in, look toward the top right of your screen for a pie chart that says "reports"
- Click on that pie chart
- Look for the report called PV/GV
- Click on the link for the current month and a report will open that shows you your status for the month to date
- If you have any trouble, you can call the office at 1-800-777-7094
Commission Credits - Sales volume is measured in Commission Credits. Each product carries it's own commission credit amount. A rough estimate is 5 commission credits per quart of oil and around 8 for a filter. You can check the exact commission credits earned in the G-3501 Dealer Profit List
PV - Personal Volume - Every AMSOIL product has a commission credit value. Personal commission credits are accumulated by your personal purchases, your Preferred Customer purchases, your retail catalog sales and purchases made by your commercial and retail accounts. At the end of each month, your commissions are calculated and AMSOIL sends you a cheque based on the AMSOIL Commission Credit Schedule. A minimum of 100 monthly commission credits is required to receive a personal commission cheque
GV - Group Volume - By sponsoring new Dealers, you build your personal group. The commission value of your group's purchases are added to yours, increasing the percentage of your commission and giving you a bigger commission cheque. You must have a minimum of 50 personal commission credits to earn a commission from your personal group each month.
If you're going to place an order to reach a higher achievement level, your order must be received, paid for, and processed by AMSOIL before 5:00pm Central Time on the last Friday of the month. If you need to call in your orders, be aware that AMSOIL phone lines are only open 7:00am to 7:00pm Central Time on weekdays
How Earnings Increase at Higher Achievement Levels
As your Group Points reach 100,300,500,1000,1500,2000,2500,3000 etc. you'll earn more income on your Personal Volume (PV) Plus, you'll earn more income on the volume generated by your downline dealers.
What about Downline Dealers?
If you are actively involved in coaching dealers in your downline, you will want to check how many Commission Credits they've achieved during the month, so you can remind them if they are close to a level that could give them more income or recognition. In communicating with them, however, be absolutely sure to make it clear that you are just informing them so they can optionally increase their Commission Credits to reach an achievement level, if it makes sense for them—you never want a Dealer to feel that you are pressuring them to do more.
To discuss specifics of your volume level and potential achievements, contact your Sponsor, Direct Jobber or your Regional Manager.
