This page is maintained by Howard B. Richman.
It is NOT an official “Your Eternal Seed” instruction page. However, from my personal experience, I do like to attempt to keep a running log of important points, suggestions, tips questions/answers, tutorials, and guidelines for the Y.E.S. program here for quick reference and make that available to my team.
How do you Sign Up?
If you have come here but you haven’t yet officially signed up for Your Eternal Seed, then please see my main page here. If you already have someone who introduced you to the program then please ask THEM for their direct link so you be associated with them.
Payment Method for Sending Gifts
To send your GIFT to someone, each person can indicate which payment method they prefer.
Payment Methods for Admin Fee
SOLID TRUST PAY
Solid Trust Pay is the preferred method of paying the admin fee but see below for alternative methods. If you don’t already have one, you can create one pretty quickly and fund it by any credit card. If you want to fund it with your bank account, that takes much more time. There are some fees involved, so even though the Y.E.S. program requires the admin fee, you should put a bit more into your STP account so it will cover any fees.
It is possible to send cash directly to pay for the admin fee. I am happy to provide the admin address for this if you inquire.
If you want to get going immediately and you don’t have a Solid Trust Pay account and you don’t want to wait to send cash, I have set up an option for you to pay with a credit card on my own personal account and I will handle reimbursing the Y.E.S. admin with your admin fee. Please click here if you are interested in that option.
Can you use PayPal?
Long ago, I was in a different program that encouraged PayPal as the payment method. Soon thereafter, PayPal cancelled my account! As of August 2016 I just contacted PayPal again to see if their policy might have changed and they responded: “Income opportunities are not acceptable on PayPal.” But, they DO allow private gifts to be sent among family and friends. So here is my best current analysis of PayPal at this time:
PayPal may be used to send private gifts as “friends and family” but MAY NOT BE USED to pay the admin fee for an income opportunity. So if you use PayPal to send a gift, choose “SEND MONEY TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY,” WITHOUT A NOTE. Then send a SEPARATE email letting that person know who you are, with your username and any other info so they would be better able to reconcile your payment. This is especially true if your PayPal account goes by a business name or some name other than what is in the system.
What do you do After you Sign up?
- Log in here: http://www.youreternalseed.com
- Enter your username YOU CHOSE when you pre registered.
- Enter your password you chose when you pre registered.
- You will be redirected to pay the Admin Fee (See above section for details about this.)
- Once you have paid the Admin Fee, you will be able to access your back office
- Be sure all your information is correct! And please remember to state your choice of how you wish to receive under “member info”.
- Click on Board Placement. It’s at the top of your back office home page.
- Click on the $25 level, and you will get a message to return to your home page where you will find who your gift goes to and their choice of how they want to receive their gifts.
- Please send your gift ASAP!
- Send a gifting statement to the username of the receiver (this will go automatically to that persons email address they signed up with)
What Should I Put In the “Payment Methods” Window?
The space doesn’t allow for more than about 30 characters, so it seems that there is not even room for your address. Just list the methods of payment that you accept.
How do you Know Who to Send Your Gift to?
After you gain access to the back office, the “Members Home” page will display who you are supposed send the gift to under “Pending Confirmations.” It should be clear WHO and HOW they want to receive their gift and if it is not, then just call or email them and find out. I suggest that you copy and paste this info into a text file on your computer or write it down for future reference.
Everyone Starts at the $25 Level
This is fair. After you move up to the top of each board, and 8 people send you their gifts then you are ready to move to the next level.
What is the Referral URL?
When you log in, on the “Members Home” tab when you scroll down, you will see something like this
Your Referral URL : http://www.youreternalseed.com/your-username
This is the URL or “web address” that you GIVE OUT to everyone when you promote the program. Then when someone gets to your custom link and the decide to sign up, YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY BECOME THEIR INVITER. I recommend IN ADDITION to giving out that link to people that you ALSO give out or post your actual USERNAME in case there is a glitch in the system. This way, people will be able to fill out their form with your username in case the auto-fill is not working.
What Does “Your Positions” Mean?
When you log in, on the “Members Home” tab when you scroll down, you will see “Your Positions.” It is possible that you are on multiple boards simultaneously until they are completely filled and then they will become “retired.” There are 15 slots on each board. you start in one of the bottom positions. When that row is full, you move to the next level and then A NEW BOARD OPENS UP where your name will display on the row one up from the bottom. This process keeps continuing until you reach the very top position on a brand new board. THAT IS THE POINT WHERE EIGHT PEOPLE WILL BE SENDING YOU THE GIFTS! It also means that you are ready to go to the next level board and you should click on the “board placement” tab.
How Does the Computer Place New People on the Board?
Notice that the board is split in two halves. Depending on which side your INVITER is on, you will be placed in the first free slot on the left side (position 1,2,3 or 4) or on the right side (position 5,6,7 or 8). IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS TO THIS AUTO-PLACEMENT FEATURE: If, as the inviter, you notice that your invitee is placed in a slot that is not directly below you and you WANT them to be below you, then please contact Y.E.S. ADMIN directly and they will move them to the position you request. (NOTE: You can also do this is as the invitee as well, if you realize that you have not been positioned in the direct lineage of your inviter. (IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO REQUEST TO BE MOVED, HOWEVER. I CALL THIS THE “ANGEL FACTOR” WHERE NEW PEOPLE SHOW UP UNDER YOU THAT YOU DID NOT EXPECT AND I THINK IT IS ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS ABOUT THIS PROGRAM.)
Is it Possible to Have Multiple Instances of the Same Denomination?
Yes. You can re-enter any level so you have more than one line going. This means that you can have multiple $25 boards or multiple $100 boards etc. It might end up that your name would show up twice on the same board even. To accomplish this you have to make a special request of the Admin.
Is this Program Open Members Globally or just USA?
People from all over the world can participate. But in these cases, you would have to use a payment processor such as Solid Trust Pay which would take care of the currency conversion.
Why Should I Start the Process Again After I Move to the $100 Board?
Even though your goal is to progress to the higher and higher levels, it is beneficial for all, including you, to re-enter a $25 board by selecting “board placement” IN ADDITION to placing your self on the next level. Why? There are really two reasons: 1) Because as you attract more people to the system, it is to your advantage to have a place to put them so they are officially in your lineage. 2) By going through the system again, you are actually helping those who have signed up under you because this will help to move them along, which in the long run will also help you!
To Make The Process go Faster, DON’T WAIT Until you Complete Each Board
Notice that once your gift is CONFIRMED that when you click again on “board placement” you will immediately see the chance to enter the next level board. Although it is common to WAIT until you have reached the top of the current board and that you have started to receive gifts at that denomination before you progress to the next level board, I have found that, if you can afford to do so, it is better to NOT WAIT! Just ENTER EACH NEXT LEVEL BOARD AS SOON AS YOU CAN. So you might end up having many boards open CONCURRENTLY. There are many reasons for this. One reason is that it seriously speeds things up for you and for others. Another reason is that you never know if one of your invitees would want to do this and then they would automatically be placed under you, which is so helpful. Otherwise, they would pop ahead of you! (Please check with your inviter and see if they are already on the next board or you might pop ahead of them!)
Tell Your People They Should Plan on Getting at least FIVE People Involved
Please tell potential members the following:
This activity thrives on a group momentum, where we all help one another. Realistically, please DON’T sign up for this program if you don’t think you can get five people to be interested. They recommend that you get just two people but try to aim for five. Usually, your close circle of friends is enough but it is possible to market outside of your known circle. Here is an article I wrote on this subject: How to Market Cash-Gifting Programs. If you think you cannot encourage five people to get involved with this, then it is better for you to NOT SIGN UP because it will bog the whole system down. This is a fast-moving system and everyone needs to be involved and not just expect others to do the work.
Group calls are free to members. They are scheduled every Wednesday and Sunday night at 9:00 pm Eastern Time. You can learn a lot at these calls and you have an opportunity to ask questions at the end. Let me know if you want the phone number and access code.
