faq123

 

I got my package, but not the MasterCard. Does that not come in one package?
The MasterCard is sent from PFS in London… not Karatbars. Although the companies are linked by security features… They are 2 separate entities.

 

My online bill/screenshot/envelope was declined. Can you tell me why?
That is NOT an acceptable form of Proof of Address. To ensure that safety and integrity of the accounts Karatbars requires a document that is actually mailed to you.

 

FAQs 3D TextWhy did the system purchase a gram of gold in my account without my authorization?
Page 24 of “Marketing Plan download… “AutoSave “
You must have earned commissions and not acquired any gold. The company promotes Gold Savings, thus helps you accumulate gold by paying you in paper money and real gold money.

 

My purchase did not go through and when I now try to submit the same bonus code on the new purchase attempt, the system says ‘invalid’. Can you send me a new bonus code?
Check INVOICES under MY GOLD tab… the transaction is either pending and processing and held there until processed or reset, or when ordering again, which is under Purchase page after clicking “ Checkout “
You may have missed   _“Fixed Discount” Apply discount under Bonus code submission area.

Please note once a bonus code is typed in, it remains in the BACK OFFICE waiting to be used. You can find the still valid bonus code, if you log into the BACK OFFICE, choose the PRODUCT PURCHASE section and click on SUBMIT BONUS CARD.
There you will see that it is submitted and waiting to be used.

In order to apply your already submitted 100€ discount on a future purchase, please make sure to click on ‘Fixed Discount: 100 € (Approx. US $ 112) Would you like to apply this Bonus Card discount?’ in the CHECKOUT PAGE.
Please note, that the bonus code is never lost and almost always successfully submitted
regardless of the success of purchase attempt.

Please note, you can only use one 100 € Bonus code per applied purchase.
The 3% bonus code is good for 365 days, Upload it once, and gives 3% Preferred Price for a year.

 

I purchased a package and now I can only see the KYC page. Is this a glitch?
No… if you register an account and buy a package, you will be taken to the KYC page to upload your KYC documents to Secure, Protect, and Establish your identity and insured delivery address. You cannot purchase anything more until you load the documents and they are APPROVED.

 

wttw_support-faqI set up an auto purchase, but why does the system not apply the 3% discount which is already submitted?
On an Auto – EXCHANGE purchase, which is a Voluntary option to acquire gold regularly, monthly or weekly, by ‘ Set It and Forget It ‘registration and purchase on a credit card, it is a Fixed amount, so the purchase gives you 3% more gold, not takes away 3% of the Euro amount.

 

Why did the 100 € discount code I submitted not apply on my bronze/silver/gold package?
The 100€ discount is only applicable on VIP & VIP Exclusive packages and package upgrades to VIP & VIP Exclusive packages, Bonus Card Bundles, Multi Gram Cards and Branding Card orders over 250.
You can use the cards for yourself and/or potential customer or affiliates.

Once submitted it can be found in the back office. Choose the PRODUCT PURCHASE section and click on SUBMIT BONUS CARD.

Please note, that the bonus code is never lost and almost always successfully submitted regardless of the success of purchase attempt.

The 3% discount is applicable on ALL physical gold purchases (NOT PACKAGES) and once entered in the affiliates /customers back office will automatically apply on all gold purchases for one complete year or (12 months). The 3% code can also be used for the Multi Gram Card.

 

I tried to place a purchase, but why can I now only choose the upgrade packages, not the package I intended to purchase?
Check your INVOICES under MY GOLD tab, you must have a pending –processing incomplete order, or Bank Wire. A Credit Card purchase will either process or clear within 4 hours or overnight, or Reset to show nothing at all.

Once the payment is processing and stuck in pending, you see an ‘open payment’ in the Invoice section. After 30 minutes stuck in pending a Cancel button appears. All you have to do is click on the cancel button.

If you did not, then it is still set as an open payment. Therefore the option to purchase the same package is automatically unavailable.

Sometimes an order is made that requires the order to be VERIFIED and your bank has tried to contact you by phone, text, or email, and you haven’t responded. A Bank Wire only creates an INVOICE, TO BE PAID BY PRINTING OUT AND TAKING INTO A BANK TO WIRE FUNDS. SEE SPECIFIC INFORMATION.

 

I just received my MasterCard, why is the balance zero?
For security and protection purposes, MasterCard doesn’t put money on the card in transit. You must ACTIVATE the card, and verify that in your back office under CARD LOG IN under COMMISSIONS tab. Once the card is received, you must log into the back office, choose “Card Login” within the Commission section and type in the last 6 digits of the credit card number. (You do not login to PFS.) You may try to enter the digits 3 times and if the numbers to do not match the numbers in our system, the card will be blocked until validated by our staff. In this case you are advised to send an e-mail to debitcard@karatbars.com for staff review.
(This email is ONLY for blocked card review and not for PFS card services.)

With a successful match, you will receive any pending commission due on the FIRST Friday following back office activation, meaning the previous security time buffer of 2 weeks before the first commission payout no longer applies.

Then get your pin (numbers listed here also). The following Friday the Monies will be automatically deposited onto card.

Generally for Packages allow 2-4 weeks for delivery, Gold orders allow 4-6weeks for delivery. Mixed orders may take longer than usual, and time sensitive orders Acknowledged by Corp get some priority.

I placed my son on the left, but wanted him to go right/ I placed my son under my daughter, but wanted him to go under my wife. Can you move him/change sponsor?
Unfortunately once you placed your affiliates FAQ33333in their position, they cannot be moved.
HOWEVER if your affiliate have not purchased anything yet, we can suspend the account and then can re-register to be placed in your desired position or under their desired sponsor.

For safety purposes we need a confirmation sent from the registered e-mail address of the account in order to proceed with the suspension.

Please note that the suspended account will remain displayed in your down line in your back office, however it will have no use anymore and will not affect yours and your up-lines commissions/units in any way.

IMPORTANT: Please note, the placement is a pre-setting and once your affiliates are placed in their position, they cannot be moved.

6) We understand the excitement level as your organizations begin to grow.
However, I do want to impress on each of you that our company does not afford affiliates the opportunity to move to various sponsors within our organization. If an affiliate has registered previously under a particular sponsor, he/she cannot be moved to a new sponsor. We intend to respect the original sponsor which referred the Karatbars opportunity to you. There will be no exceptions to this rule. The ethics and integrity of each individual within our company must be maintained. If for some reason, you do not have access to your direct sponsor, we will connect you with the top Leaders in your group for help and support.
In the event a sponsor has violated our ethics clause, please notify a senior leadership council member or our corporate staff. The situation will be investigated.
