Buying SFI Using Western Union
Easy tips for purchasing SFI products outside the U.S. without a credit card
By Anthony J. Namata,
DAR ES SALAAM, TZ
SFI accepts credit cards issued in nearly every country in the world, but what do you do if you, your team members, or TC members living outside the U.S., want to purchase SFI products from the SFI Affiliate Store, but don't HAVE a credit card?
One answer: use Western Union via SFI's PayByCash option!
For your convenience, we'll outline the instructions in three easy-to-follow steps. For Affiliates, this option makes becoming an Executive Affiliate (EA) with SFI—regardless of your geographical location—easier than ever. Best of all, you can PAY in YOUR local currency!
NOTE: Just so you know, I live in Tanzania, so I’m actually talking from experience in this article. Also, keep in mind that orders for products prohibited for shipment by your specific country's customs laws cannot be processed.
A Little Bit On SFI's Global Order Acceptance
SFI accepts PayPal, credit cards, and many other payment methods for product orders from affiliates and customers in the countries listed HERE. If your country is not listed on that page or you or your team members don't have a credit card, you can choose Western Union.
Three Simple Steps
Make sure you have included your address in your account information section at the TripleClicks My Account section.
STEP 1 - SELECT YOUR PRODUCT/METHOD OF PAYMENT
Proceed through the checkout process of ordering your product at TripleClicks.com as usual. NOTE: An IAHBE membership is a great way to go EA for international affiliates, and there are no shipping costs involved.
Be sure to select PayByCash in the "Choose A Payment Method" section of the checkout process, as that is what will take you to the PayByCash payment processing Web page, where you can select Western Union. Review your Order Summary, review and agree to the TripleClicks Terms & Conditions, and click the Place My Order button.
You'll now see this page with the following reminder about PayByCash:
PayByCash will notify SFI once they have confirmed receipt of payment for your order. Note that this process could take up to 10 business days. SFI can not post the order OR SVP to your account, until we receive confirmation that payment has been received at PayByCash. Once we receive confirmation, your order and SVP will be posted to your account immediately.
Click the Send Order to PayByCash button to advance to the PayByCash site.
STEP 2 - ENTER THE PAYBYCASH PART OF YOUR TRANSACTION
1. You should now be on the PayByCash site. Confirm that your account name, price, and country are accurate as listed here.
2. Select Western Union QuickPay as your payment option and click Continue.
3. Review the information listed here (your address, name, etc.) to make sure it's accurate. Click Continue.
4. PRINT this next page. It's your guide to filling out your Western Union QuickPay/Payment Services forms correctly, and it has the total amount payable, including the PayByCash processing fee (usually $4 USD).
NOTE: In Tanzania (and perhaps other countries) Western Union no longer offers the QUICK PAY forms. However, they DO have its equivalent Payment Services forms. Show your local Western Union office the printed sample, and they should be able to advise you what’s applicable in YOUR country.
STEP 3 - GO TO YOUR WESTERN UNION OFFICE TO COMPLETE THE TRANSACTION
At your local Western Union office, ask for one of their QuickPay/Payment Services forms and fill in the fields correctly using the printed guides you generated earlier from the instructions above. You may notice, depending on the country you're in, the forms differ slightly. We'll address that issue in a moment.
NOTE: if you are paying for IAHBE, and Western Union asks you WHAT you are paying for, explain that it's for education you're receiving through the Internet. You can pay in local currency; however, you must enter the U.S. dollar amount on the forms. Western Union will convert the USD total into your local currency based on that day's exchange rate.
• Filling Out The Western Union Money Transfer Form:
Where it says...
Company Name: fill in... Internet Payment Solutions, Inc.
Locale/Code City: fill in... BILLINGSERVICES VA
Country: fill in... USA
Account Number: fill in... Your Order ID Number on your PayByCash printout
Reference Number: fill in... Your SFI ID number
The rest is easy. Just copy all the details from the form you printed at the PayByCash site in Step 3. An E-mail notification will be sent to you when your payment has been processed. Your PayByCash™ payment will be processed the same day it is received.
IMPORTANT: Make sure you follow these instructions exactly as outlined above. Otherwise, your money will arrive at PayByCash without the proper instructions describing what the funds are for. The Account and Reference Numbers link the order to YOU!
If you’re based in Tanzania and need assistance, please feel free to contact me. I have a bunch of forms with some of the fields already filled out, if you’re not confident with filling them out yourself.
• Additional Information For Your Reference
It has come to my attention that Western Union in Tanzania, unlike before, no longer issues a printed receipt, and this may well be the case in other parts of the world.
What this means is that, if there is a typo in the reference numbers (such as your SFI ID or the PayByCash Order number), you will have absolutely no way of knowing because you do not have a printed receipt to cross-check with.
HOWEVER, there is a solution...
After completing your transaction at Western Union, you should receive an e-mail from SFI within a few hours confirming your completed transaction and your SVP credit. If you don't receive this e-mail, check your Sales Notifications Report here. If your transaction isn't showing up in the personal purchases section of this report, send the following information (with your own order details added) to PayByCash via their Ask A Question section of their customer service page.
I have just paid via Western Union in [INSERT YOUR CITY AND COUNTRY], which did not issue a printed receipt. Hence, I have no way of knowing whether my order and reference numbers were entered into the computer correctly. The following are the particulars of my transaction. Please cross-check on your end of this transaction to ensure I am credited accordingly.
Name: [INSERT NAME USED ON YOUR ORDER]
Western Union Money Transfer Control Number: [INSERT WU CONTROL #]
PayByCash Order Number: [INSERT PAYBYCASH ORDER #]
SFI ID/Reference Number/Account Name: [INSERT YOUR SFI ID]
Thanks for your assistance.
[INSERT YOUR NAME]
Buying SFI products is usually considered a hassle by affiliates outside the U.S. who do not have credit cards or who live in the few countries from where SFI does not accept credit cards.
But it doesn't have to be—if you use Western Union via online processor PayByCash. This method is just as secure as a credit card, and it's tremendously fast and efficient and not really as complicated as you might think!
Remember, your GROWTH in SFI hinges on YOU, the people you recruit into your team, and a convenient way to purchase products for personal use AND to buy wholesale in order to retail. Thanks to this method, processing your orders and payments should now be an easy matter for you and your team members outside the U.S.
If you have any questions, please contact me. I’d be more than happy to help. And don't forget to refer your international affiliates to this article!
