Commission cycles are run at the end of business on Wednesday with checks being sent promptly Thursday morning. We also run a Friday night commission cycle that will send out payments on Monday. If you elect for EFT payments, you will find your commissions hitting your account the next business day after payment is sent. For example, the Wednesday cycle will have payments sent Thursday, which means payments will promptly appear on Friday in bank accounts.  


After you reach out to us, we’ll arrange for you to meet our team via phone and ask any questions you may have before we get started. Then, you’ll fill out a brief digital application. After our team has completed our due diligence, we’ll make a decision and notify you via email. If you’re approved, we’ll also send you marketing and sales materials to help you get started.
