Global Access Country

South Africa – update Nov 18

Hi folks and thank you to everyone who has expressed interest in doTERRA opening in South Africa.

We are trusting that in 2019 we will see movement and hopefully a warehouse and an open country – but lets just wait and see.

Until then, we are doing our best to share the oils with family and friends in South Africa – so if you want to know more – please register your interest over here: http://bit.ly/doafrica

dōTERRA has distribution offices in many countries around the world, but if they are not yet in YOUR country, you are in a Global Access Country. As a result, you can still set up an account as a Global Access Member, and order from America. Wholesale warehouses are opening up around the world regularly, consequently it will not take too long to get a warehouse in YOUR country.

UPDATE:  dōTERRA have three types of business services in different countries:

  1. OTG – meaning “On the ground” – where they have an office, ship directly to customers and the products are approved in those countries for retail.
  2. NFR – “Not for resale” – don’t have local office but do ship to the country. Products are NOT approved in that country for retail purposes.
  3. GAC – “Global access” – most importantly here products can only be shipped to an American address which can be a freight forwarding business – or you need to receive shipping yourself if you are in an OTG country and forward it to the individual in the GAC country.

Open Markets:

  1. Australia
  2. Canada
  3. China
  4. Japan
  5. Hong Kong

To enrol a new distributor in the Global Access program:

1. Log in to your back office:
2. Go to Wellness Advocate Services > Register a New Wellness Advocate
3: Select Global Access Country from the dropdown menu
4: Fill in new Wellness Advocate info including the Shipping Address with the US address that it will be shipped to. Company can ship orders directly to you or one of your team leaders or company can ship to a freight forwarder that will ship (for a fee) to your distributor in a Global Access market.

How do I enrol? I am in South Africa!

I had a personal interest (with family in South Africa) to see how to enrol Wellness Advocates particularly in South Africa…so here we go:

We have worked out two options (First thing to do is contact us and discuss how to do this!):

  1. Either register yourself and enrol with an American Global Access Account – for this you need an AMERICAN mailing address – a fmaily member or friend – or set yourself up with MYUS.com. In this way you can order whatever you want, ship it to your American address and then arrange to forward the product to South Africa – perhaps a little complicated, but it does work.
  2. It is possible to work with us in Australia, and we can make special arrangements to set you up as an Australian Global Access Member – and then order stock at Australian prices, to be delivered to us in Australia. You may also have family and friends in Australia and between them and us, we can arrange to get your oils to you in South Africa. We already have two trips planned between November 2017 and June 2018 – so make contact and we can get your account set up.

You can research this online at: Common Questions Global Access.

Firstly, when you go to the mydoterra.com site to sign up, you get to choose your language and country and those countries dōTERRA deliver to are listed. If your country is not listed, then you have to select OTHER (GLOBAL ACCESS COUNTRY).

To enrol a new distributor in the Global Access program:

Global Access Country – What does that mean?

Anyone can sign up as a wellness advocate from anywhere in the world, but if you have no option other than to join from a Global Access Country there are a few things you need to know:

1. You have to set up your account with an American mailing address
2. Your orders must be shipped to that American mailing address
3. You can sign up other Wellness Advocates around the world
4. You can benefit from the LRP program
5. You build up product credits
6. Rewards accrue on their dōTERRA AR (accounts receivable) balance
7. It may be possible to get this AR balance paid to GAC Wellness Advocates when the balance goes above U$1,000 and this can only be done where favourable currency and banking conditions occur

Who can I contact for help?

For all queries around Global Access Countries, contact Member Services by phone (1-800-411-8151) or email (globalaccess@dōTERRA.com). Or send us a message on the right and we will gladly chat with you and find a solution.

Practically, many GAC Wellness Advocates register and setup a US mailing address with a freight forwarding company. One that dōTERRA do mention is: https://www.myus.com/ Here you can register a US mailing address for yourself at very little cost, and use this service to place your dōTERRA orders, which get delivered to the US address and immediately on-forwarded to you in your Global Access Country.
