How to get started

Step by step sign up process

STEP 1:

If you were NOT invited by someone, simply look for and click on the orange “sign-up” floating button on the Mema website, or click on this link: https://mema.co.za/pre_register/

  • If this is the case, you will skip STEP 2 and go directly to STEP 3.

If you were invited by a person and want to join Mema … ask the person who introduced you to provide you with his/her referral / invitation link.

  • It will look like this: http://xxxxxxxxx.mema.co.za

 

STEP 2:

[Only if you were invited by someone]

Click on the invitation link.

If you are not being redirected to the landing page of the person who invited you, then do the following:

  • Copy the referral / invitation link by holding your finger on the link until it said: ‘copied to clipboard’
  • Paste it on your google website “link space” and press enter.

This will redirect you to a page where is will say: “Welcome to xxxxxxxxxx’s profile page.”

  • Look for the button below and click on it:

This will take you to STEP 3.

 

STEP 3:

The “Pre-Register” page will open.

The purpose of this page is to validate the name of person who referred you.

  • Both the “Refer ID” and the name of the person who referred you will be pre-populated, and not edit-able.

Populate the following fields:

  • First Name
  • Surname
  • Date of Birth [please include the forward slash (/) between the year, month, day – example: 2001/01/01]
  • Email address
  • Confirm Email address

After populating the fields, press the orange banner with the word “Proceed”

This will take you to STEP 4, which is to confirm your email address.

 

STEP 4:

Check your email inbox for a confirmation email (average time about 3 – 4 minutes)

  • Click on the confirmation link provided in the email to complete the application process!
    • Please check your spam folder in the event you haven’t received your confirmation email in your inbox.

 

STEP 5:

The “Register” page will open.

Continue to complete all those fields marked with an asterisk (*) not pre-populated yet.

  • Personal details.
  • E-mail address.
  • Telephone contact details [Home/Business and Mobile number].
  • Create a Password of at least 10-30 characters, and confirm Password
  • Add your bank details from which your debit order is going to be activated.

Make sure of the date on which your debit order for your Mema product selection must come off. [This will only happen if you have not registered two people personally who are both active and paid, 4 working days prior to your debit date.

  • If you have not registered two people, an amount equal to that of your product cost will be deducted.

After populating the fields, press the orange banner with the word “Proceed”.

The system will thank you for registering and mention your NAME

It will take you to STEP 6, which is the product selection step.

 

STEP 6:

Choose your product (choose one from the list of available products presented to you).

  • Only one product can be selected. Please do so!
  • If you want any other combination not available on this page, send a mail to admin@mema.co.za and request it to be added after you have chosen at least one product already.
  • Only products you qualify for, in terms of the predetermined qualifying criteria, will be displayed and offered to you as part of the selection process.
  • Select and subscribe to any of our other valued offerings based on your personal needs and affordability.

At this point you will be a “Customer”

Click the orange banner at the end of Step 6 to advance to the “Business Choice” at Step 7.

 

STEP 7:

Decide whether you want to continue to participate as a “Customer” member (at no additional cost), or join as an Affiliate or Connecta member.

Base your decision on the following:

 


  • Customers can invite members, but can only benefit from the break-even incentive.
  • Customers can only earn on members on their Level 1 and have their subscription covered.
  • Customers cannot earn more money than the value of their current subscription value.
  • There is no additional cost to stay on as a “customer”.

  • Affiliate members are limited to 2 members on their 1st level. When you personally introduce more than 2 people, the “spill-over” rule will apply.
  • Affiliate members can only earn on Levels 1 to 4.

(This means that any additional members you invite, will occupy the next available spots in your network. You will still earn a commission on their subscriptions if they are placed anywhere on your earning levels 2 – 4.)

  • Affiliate members can however grow into becoming “Connecta” members [which could take some time]:

 (You will automatically be upgraded to a “Connecta” member status as soon as your Net profit reaches R200.00. From then on, no further spillovers will occur, and all new invitees will be placed on your 1st level.)

  • There is an additional cost of R30/month to upgrade to an “Affiliate”.

  • “Connecta” members can have an unlimited number of members on their 1st level, hence the “spill-over” rule does not apply to them.
  • “Connecta” members can only earn on Levels 1 to 10.
  • “Connecta” members may withdraw up to 50% of their accumulated projected earnings before payment date, if required, in case of financial emergencies.
  • There is an additional cost of R130/month to upgrade to a “Connecta”.

 

STEP 8:

[Confirm your product selection]

Check and confirm your selection:

If correct, click on orange “Select and Finalise my Application” button, else click on the black “No…Go Back and Change Products” button to restart the product selection process (Steps 6 and 7).

 

STEP 9:

  • Members are required to activate their membership by settling their invoice within 48 hours after registration…so opt to settle your invoice immediately.
