Back Office / Replicating Website Help
How can I login to my back office ?
If you are logging into your Xooma account, go to http://www.xoomaworldwide.com. Your log in is your 6-digit PIN (account number) which is also found on your invoices. The password is the one you provided when you enrolled.
How do I set up my replicating website?
Your replicating website is automatically set up after you fill in the desired name on your enrollment form and submit the information to us.
Your website URL would be: http://www.xoomaworldwide.com/YOURNAMEHERE
If you would like to change your contact information that appears on your replicating website, simply log into your "back office" by clicking the Member's Log in link on the page.
Find the tab for My Site (the second item on the menu). This shows you the Edit My Website options in the boxes below the menu tab. Click on the first icon marked Profile to access the customization features. When you're done, simply click on the Submit link.
How do I email my downline?
It takes several steps to email your downline. The first step is to setup your email profile. This profile includes information that needs to be included with your email for legal compliance as well as creating access to your email account to send your messages from. After you've filled this form out (you only need to do this one time) you will need to select a list of the people you want to email. You can either use the simple selection tool available in Select Email list or you can create a custom group of people in the advanced genealogy reports and export that list. You may export multiple lists as needed to get your targeted list built. The system will remove duplicate listings.
After you've built your list you'll need to enter the email message you want to send. Once you've created and saved your message you are ready to send your message. Select the send message tool, agree to the terms and conditions and send your email. Your email will begin sending immediately. Depending on your mail server, the size of your mail list, and the rate delays you have set you will see your message in as little as a few seconds or after a few hours. The server will continue trying to send your message for up to six days.
Why do I get a 550 relaying denied error?
Relaying denied errors are caused by your mail server refusing to allow you to send mail via an outside client. In this case the server that is running the downline emailer is trying to connect to your mail server with your account to send messages on your behalf. However various security rules may prevent the email from being sent. This is usually done as part of an anti-spam policy. If you get a relaying denied error you can contact your ISP and attempt to get access or you can select to use another email service or ISP to send your messages through.
Why do some messages take a long time to send?
The mailer will attempt to send your message at the time reported in the send mail results page. However, network connectivity issues or unavailable mail servers may cause a particular email to be delayed. The mail system will try for up to six days to send your message. At that time if the message has not been sent, it will simply be deleted. Once the message has been delivered from the Xooma email tools it will attempt to be delivered by your mail server. Your mail server may further delay the process by up to another four days. At that time, you will be notified if your mail server was unable to send the message.
Why do I get undeliverable messages, how do I stop them?
The email address on file for a particular user may no longer be valid, their mail box may be full or there may be a problem contacting their mail server. If the account is no longer valid you could self-unsubscribe the user. Simply read the message you sent them in the returned mail. You'll see an unsubscribe link for that user. By clicking it you will remove them from all future mailings from you. Please note that once you have unsubscribed a user neither you nor Xooma has any ability to resubscribe them. Only the user can resubscribe themselves. A better solution is to call the user and get them to update their profile with a valid email address.
Where can I set up my replicating website?
Replicating sites are available to Distributors only. If you did not already set up your website at the time of enrollment or want to change the extension name, simply log into your account online at http://www.xoomaworldwide.com.
Then select the My Site tab from the menu tabs across the top. Click on the Site Name link to enter your website name. To customize the information displayed on your website, click the Profile link in that section to enter your information to be displayed on the site and finish activating your site.
Once you've done this go to http://www.XoomaWorldWide.com/theNameYouPicked to see your new site.
For more information on this topic, use the training manual for replicating site setup.
Why are there two Profile links in my back office?
The My Account Profile allows you to update your contact information with Xooma Worldwide.
The My Site Profile allows you to select various options for your replicating website. This includes whether or not you want your phone number or email address displayed on your site, as well as the specific email address and phone number to display (which can differ from your Account Profile information). You can also select if you want additional content pages to be available or if you'd rather just use the default information provided.
What is Edit Site Content?
Edit Site Content allows you to edit and/or personalize portions of your replicating website. You must have setup a replicating site with the Edit Site URL option first. For more information on this topic, use the training manual for replicating site setup.
How can I better use my personal Xooma website?
Once you have your name you can do more then just link people to: http://www.XoomaWorldWide.com/yoursitename you can also send people to specific pages on the website. If you want to send people to the Product Information page it's just a simple change. The link would look like: http://www.XoomaWorldWide.com/~yourSiteName/prodInfo.asp The big difference is you need to add the tilde (~) in front of your site name. That lets the system know you want to send your user to a specific page after they are tied to your site. You can also link directly to the signup page with: http://www.XoomaWorldWide.com/~yourSiteName/xcomm/createAccount.asp
For more information on this topic, use the training manual for replicating site setup.
What do the colors mean in the Quick Reports and Advanced Genealogy Reports?
We've added color coding to make certain data stand out. Green rows indicate people who have been added in the last 30 days. Red indicates returned inventory.
How do I use the Advanced Genealogy Reporting option?
You may check out the Back Office Training Video by going to this site http://www.x2obuilder.com/AdvancedGeneology.wmv. For a complete guide download the Genealogy Training Manual.
The first step of the Advanced Genealogy Reporting (AGR) is to decide what columns you need to display. Simply click on the SHOW button. That column will be displayed in your final report.
The next step is to decide what you need to filter on. A filter allows you decide what data you do or do not want to see. For instance, if you want to see all the people in your downline named Bob, you simply select the "=" filter and enter "Bob" in the next field. When you run your report, you'll see the results.
Note that you do not have to show a column to filter it. In our "Bob" example you could have just displayed the user's ID number without showing the name.
There are four filtering options as well as the "No Filter" option. If you select "No Filter" then regardless of what you put text field to the right of the "Filter By" box, no action will be taken.
If you select equals (=) then only items that exactly match your filter will be displayed.
If you select greater than (>) then only items greater than the number or date you selected will be entered. Note that greater than and less than can only be used with numbers and dates. They are not available for text-based comparisons.
The less than (<) allows you to find items less than the number or date you enter.
The last option is not equal (<>). This item is used to find everything BUT the selected information. For instance you could look for people who are NOT in Tennessee.
The final option is the number of records per page to display. The system allows you to display anywhere between 25 and 1000 records per page. If you have a slow computer or internet connection, you may want to use a smaller number. A 1000 record downline may take a minute or two to download depending on your connection quality.
Most reports render out in about 1 second. Your Internet connection and computer and the only limiting factors.
Depending on what you've entered in your filters you may not get any records back. If you need to make changes or simply want to run a different report, just click the "Make Changes" link at the top of the report. If you got back a large report you can click any of the page numbers above to move to the next group of records.
When you are done with your report, just click the return to main menu button.
Why do the "Tree Report" and the "Genealogy Reports" show different numbers of Members in my organization?
The "Tree Report" is a real time report. As soon as a new Member is added to your organization or a Member changes their profile, the Tree Report will reflect that change. The "Quick Reports" (including the "Advanced Genealogy Report") is designed to give you powerful searching and organization tools. These reports are updated periodically throughout the day and may vary slightly from the Tree Report on the same day.
Why does Xooma Worldwide need to know my personal ISP smtp
The SMTP and login credentials is needed only if you wish to utilize the Xooma back office downline email tools. We do not provide free email accounts or auto-responder software for Xooma distributors. The back office downline email tools are free. However, in order to keep them free (only for those who wish to use the back office emails tools), all emails are sent through your personal or business email account. We use your smtp and login info to relay the pulled email list from our database (which is also your database of downline members) through your email ISP on a one per one basis. This one to one basis also helps to assure that your emails are not blocked as bulk mail spam to large email servers like AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo, and many many others. You will even see the emails show up in some cases in your sent mail folder. Again, this is only an optional tool if you wish to use it. All of your information is protected as outlined in our online privacy statements. Xooma also maintains an opt out lists for all distributors from their uplines should they decide they do not want to receive communication from an upline member (this does actually happen from time to time). Many reps use these tools very effectively to communicate with their groups.
The email tools are not mandatory and if you prefer you can always simply run one of our many back office reports to query your downline email addresses and manually enter or copy/paste them into your own email client. You can also use this same reporting for phone and mailing lists for your group.
Lastly, should you choose, there are many email autoresponder software solutions available. They average around $40.00 a month for an account. Due to the high rate at which these companies get blocked (for CAN SPAM violations) from major ISP's, Xooma does not endorse any particular company.
When can I expect to receive my first autoship?
If you started your Xooma business with a standard product, your first automatic monthly order will be shipped 30 days from the date of your first purchase, normally on the anniversary date of your sign up.
Can I pay for my order with an automatic check withdrawal?
At this time, Xooma Worldwide is only able to accept credit cards or debit cards (with Visa or Master Card logo) for payment of initial and future monthly autoship orders. We are currently in the process of investigating other payment options that would make it possible for people to join Xooma Worldwide and purchase products without a credit or debit card.

Why does my Xooma "backoffice" website say that I need to log back into my account?
The "back office" of your Xooma website will automatically log you out after 20 minutes of inactivity. If you haven't "talked" to the webserver (been active on your site) in at least 20 minutes, it assumes you have gone away and frees your connection so that our website "speed" remains fast. As long as you visit a page or click on a link (within 20 minutes) you will send data to the webserver and it will know that you are still active on your website.
How long will it take for a new user's pin to be assigned?
All sign ups occur in real time.
When will my order be processed?
Most orders are processed before 2:00 pm eastern ship on the same day. Orders after 2:00 pm usually ship the following business day.
How can I help people get started from my own personal Xooma website?
Use the link below, replacing "mysitenamehere" with your replicating website name.
Can someone still enroll as a Member in Xooma for just the basic product purchase?
Yes. The Fast Start Packages are optional. If developing more immediate income in your business is important to you and the people you sponsor, use these Fast Start Packages as often as you can when enrolling new Members. A Fast Start Package is an easy one-time purchase that gives you the ability to earn substantial weekly commissions.
What are the corresponding autoships of New Member Initial Packages?
The corresponding autoships for all starter packages are found on the enrollment forms by clicking the link below the product description of the package you are selecting.
