New Payment Method Coming Soon

Nature's Sunshine Products

New Payment Method Coming Soon

As mentioned last week, Nature's Sunshine will begin using a new payment method in April. We're making the change from checks to your very own Visa® prepaid debit card*. This new card payment program offers many benefits, including: &

- Immediate payment delivery Visa Card
- Free online payment tracking
- Flexible access to funds
- Your very own Nature's Sunshine marketing tool
- Security and protection through Visa and the FDIC

We are pleased to announce that this will become effective for your April payment.

Please take note of the following:

- You can log in at  the Nature's Sunshine website  for more information and to review the frequently asked questions regarding the new payment program.
- Please remember to update your account profile on the website or call Customer Service  to make sure we have your current mailing and email addresses. This will help insure that your card and information go to the correct address.
- If you currently have your checks deposited directly, no changes will be made to your account. Your payment will continue to go directly to your bank account.
- We hope to offer more frequent payments on the card for special bonus programs in the future.
- Your new Visa prepaid card will arrive near the beginning of April. Your April payment (and every payment thereafter) will be loaded onto your card on one of the following dates each month:

- National Managers = 11th
- Managers = 13th
- Members =17th

Thank you for your commitment to Nature's Sunshine. We believe this new payment program will allow us to be even more responsive to your needs and help you be even more successful in the future.

*Cards are issued by Citibank, N.A. pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc. and managed by Citi Prepaid Services. This card can be used everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted.
