Hello, my name is Christian Dupart and I am the founder of Church Of The Divine Prospect. Before starting those tutorials, I want to take a minute to thank you from the bottom of my heart for participating in our programs. For this reason I am asking our Lord Jesus Christ to bless you, your family and your cause with whatever is best for you. Amen. Now, I am going to let you enjoy those helpful tutorials and I wish you a wonderful day. Thank you

Before registering, you need to know what kind of payment you are going to choose to make your first donation. If you have a PayPal account and you are going to use it with COTDP, there is no need to keep watching this tutorial. If you live in the US and you do not want to pay fees, fast forward to the Dwolla section of the video.

You need to know that the payments made by our Church to your cause will be done through PayPal and consequently opening an account with this company is highly recommended. This video will show you how to open an account with PayPal first and then how to open an account with Dwolla.
For the ones who are not familiar with PayPal, we want to let you know that using this company to pay or receive money keeps your personal information exclusively within PayPal’s highly protected and encrypted informatics system. Neither COTDP nor any merchant you are paying using PayPal services will have access to your credit card or bank information.

In our opinion, it is a peace of mind for you and for us. You also need to know that when you buy a product from a merchant using PayPal’s services and the merchant is not honoring his part of the deal, you could be protected and receive your money back if PayPal determines that the merchant was at fault. The price for this peace of mind comes with a fee that PayPal is charging on all transactions they process. No surprises here I guess.

Now we are going to show you how easy it is to open an account with PayPal. You go to www.paypal.com and you click “Sign Up.” Then you select the option “Personal Account” if you are in the program “Help Yourself,” and you will have to choose “Business Account” if you are a non-profit organization or when you will start earning money as an independent contractor. You fill in the empty fields and you check mark the agreement box if you agree with the terms of the services and then click the button “Agree and Create Account”. Your account is created and in this new page you will click the button “Get Started”.

In this new page, you will fill up the information of your credit card including the CSC, which is the 3 digits number that you find in the back of your credit card on the right side of the space where you signed your credit card. If you do not have a credit card or when you will need to receive some money from your COTDP account you will have to link your bank account to your PayPal account. Right now we are going to link the account to the bank account. You will need to have one of your checks to copy the routing number which is a nine digits number and your account number which can be more than the 10 digits shown in this example. Then click the “Link Bank” and you will see a notification letting you know that you will be receiving two deposits of a few cents from PayPal in the next two days. You will have to login into your PayPal account and use the amounts of cents you received from them to confirm your bank account. From there you are ready to go and you can start using your PayPal account. This is the page of a US account. You have to click “Confirm Your Email” and “Send Email”.

Once you confirmed your email, your dashboard will show you that the account is created and the email confirmed. We are then offered to link a credit card. You can link a lot of them if you wish and if you did not enter your mobile phone number, you can do it if you want to. Clicking on the button “Link a Card”, and then the button “Link a Card or Bank” you fill up the information of your credit card and you link the card. If you opened your account with a credit card you can then link the bank account going to the wallet section, link a card or bank, link a bank account and from there we already showed you how to do it. It takes five minutes to do it.

Now if you live in the US and you do not want to use PayPal or you do not want to pay fees, you can use Dwolla to make your donations. For extra protection we recommend you to change the password of your online banking because Dwolla is going to ask you to give them the username and the password of your online banking in order to verify your ownership of the bank account. It will be done only once at registration. Once you are registered, you go back to your online bank account and you change your password again. If you decide to use this service, you will have to register during your registering process in our programs. Why? Because if you do it by yourself, it will take days and more hassle to open the account. If you do it at registration, it will be very easy.

We are going to show you how to open your account with Dwolla during your registration in our programs. We’ll start from step 4 of your registration. You are at the page where you will have to choose the program you want to participate in and the payment method for your first donation. We have chosen “Looking for Grant” and Dwolla payment method. You Click “Connect me to Dwolla” and you are directed to the COTDP-DWOLLA page. If you already have an account with them, you click on the small blue word “Login” if not; you write down your email address and you create a password for this account. If you agree with the terms and conditions, you check mark the little box and you will be asked in the next page to select your financial institution. This is where you provide your online banking information. You click “Agree and continue”, and Dwolla will ask you to choose which account to use, if you have more than one. They then ask you to create a nickname for your account, click “Verifying Info” and then you click “Summit Payment”. This will bring you back to the COTDP website to receive your very important welcome letter. You are now a registered donor in our programs.

Time for you to watch the next video that will show you how to register with us.

See you there and welcome on board.

Welcome to this tutorial about “How to Register”

When you register for the first time, you will need to access our webpage at cotdp.org and you will click on the tab called “become a Donor”. This will bring you to the first step of the registration form. In this page, you will have to enter the username of the person who introduced you to those programs, and once done, you will make sure that his or her name is the right one that appears automatically in the sponsor name window. If it is not the right name that appears in this window, check the spelling of the username. Get in contact with your sponsor in order to make sure you have the right information. It wouldn’t be fair to your sponsor for you to register under somebody else’s account.

Once the information on the screen matches the one given by your sponsor, click the blue button “Go to next step”. For the second step, you will have to fill in all the spaces where there is an asterisk *. Clicking on Mr. will activate the dropdown box where you will be able to choose your personal status or gender. Next to it you enter your first name or birthday name and then your family name or Last name. Write your middle name if you have one and then fill up the date of your birth starting with two digits for the month, don’t forget to type the forward slash, and then two digit for the day, forward slash and 4 digits for the year. Choose your gender and then make sure not to make a mistake when you enter your email address. You will receive your notifications at this email address. Write down your phone number. If you do not live in the U.S. replace the 001 from the first small box with the indicative of your Country. Do not use spaces when entering your phone number. The box will stay red and you will not be able to go forward with your registration. For the address you will have to fill the number and street name. Postal address is not needed if it is the same as your address. Select the country and the state you are living in from the respective dropdown boxes. Enter your City name and your zip code.

The information given in this section, “Beneficiary Details,” would be used to pass your account onto the person of your choosing in the case of your death. In the section “Login details”, write down your username that needs to be at list of 4 characters and no more than 15, in an Alfa numeric format. The username can be composed of letters only but cannot be numbers only. If the username box stays in red, it means that your username already exist or does not comply with the requirements for a username. When the box turns green, your username is accepted.

Your login password needs to be at list 4 characters long and you have to enter it twice. For security reasons, you will have to provide another and different password called transaction password. This password is used when you request a payment to your account from COTDP. It means that two passwords are needed in order to request a payment; the first one to login to your account and the second one to request the withdrawal.

You are asked to select three questions and to give your answer to those questions for another security reason. When you will get in touch with COTDP, we will ask you those questions and we expect you to give the right answers. If you don’t, we will consider that you are not the person you want us to believe you are and we will end the conversation with you. When you filled up all the required fields, click the button “Go to next step.” If nothing happens, scroll up or down and look for a message telling you what you probably missed. For the 3 rd step, you only have to double check that all the information you gave in the second steps are correct. You read the terms and conditions by clicking on the purple letters and if you accept the condition, you click on the white empty box to put a check mark in it and then you click “Go next step”. If something is not correct or you made a typing mistake in your form, go back to the previous page and correct the mistake. It is possible that you will have to type the passwords again.

In the 4 th step, you will have to select the program you want to participate in by clicking on “select package”. As soon as you choose your program, the payment methods will appear. Choose your payment method and refer to the first tutorial called “Before registering” in order to know what to do, depending on the payment method you choose. Once you are done with the payment method, your welcome letter will appear on your screen. This letter is the most important document you will have regarding your participation in our programs. You will not have access to this sensitive information again. You can download this information to your computer or/and you can print it. Remember to keep this information in a secure place. This welcome letter is the key to access your account. We insist: take all the cautions you can regarding this information. From here, you can access your back-office. We suggest you watch the next video called “your back office” to get acquainted with the sophisticated and user friendly working tools you will be using from now on.

Thank you for participating in our programs and may God bless you and your whole family.

Your back-office

The first time you’ll reach your back-office will probably be during registration, by clicking the button at the bottom of your welcome letter. Any time after this, you will have to visit cotdp.org and click the tab “Login”. You will access the login page where you will have to enter your username and password in order to get into your back-office. If for some reason you forgot your password, you can click on the words ”Forgot Password”. A new page will open-up where you will enter your username and click “Submit”. An email with your password will be sent to the email you provided during the registration process. If you click “Go To Home,” you will go back to the cotdp main website. If you check mark “Remember me” you will be unlocking your back- office and next time you or any other person wants to access it, they will be able to do so only by clicking “Login”. For security purposes, it is not recommended to check mark this box. But for now, let’s enter to your back-office.

This video is an introduction to the tools you will be able to use to monitor everything that is going on in your account and with your group of donors.

You can choose the color of the background to fit your personality and your mood at the moment by clicking the arrow located on the top right corner of your page, next to your picture and your username. You will be able to choose what you prefer from a set of nuanced colors like this one- -- or that one-- - or from a set of solid colors like this one-- - or that one-- - and lastly from a set of cool videos like this one -- -or this one -- - or that one-- - and there are more to choose from. Now that you are comfortable and at ease, we’ll explain the meaning of the numbers that are going to fill up your five colored upper boxes in a very near future. The first box called “Total Sponsor” gives you the information of the number of donors that have been registering in our programs using your username as sponsor. This first box requires some extra explanations because your requirement in order to be able to access your funds is to have four personally sponsored members in your group. Now, once you have your 4 personally sponsored donors, it is recommended to open another account if you want to keep sponsoring new donors.

Some people might choose not to open another account and in this case they will sponsor a new member the same way they did for the first 4 ones. The computer will not place this new donor in your first line because the line is already completed; the computer will find in your genealogy and among your “kids and grandkids” the first donor that does not have its first line of 4 donors completed and will assign the new donor to this person. This new recruit will be in your group but he will be a great, or great great child, depending on where the computer found the first empty space. This example shows you that it is possible to inherit some donor or donors from people at the top of your group. You could theoretically, end up with your first line filled up with donors without doing anything. However, even in that situation, you need to personally sponsor 4 donors in order to be able to access your funds.

The second box colored in blue gives you the information of the total amount of donors you have in your group within and beyond your 6 lines. This is why it is called your Tithe Team, because all those people are contributing directly and indirectly to the collection of funds for your cause. The third box color red gives you the information of your current month net income in real time from the moment you register up to the moment you renew your monthly donation. At the moment you renew your monthly donation, the box will reset to zero to start accounting for another month of income.

The fourth box in dark grey accumulates, in real time, the funds your cause has been generating since your registration. The fifth box in green is giving you the information of the balance of your e-wallet or internal bank account. Bellow those 5 boxes, admin uses this thin blue line to make any needed announcement. Bellow this announcement space; we have a very cool feature which is a vector map that allows the donors to know where the members of their groups are located. You place the arrow over the yellow dot and the map will tell you how many people of your group you have in the selected country.

Below the vector map, you have the section “Level Details”, where you will find some very interesting information about your group. The first column gives you the different lines you have in your group; the second line tells you how many donors you can have per line; the third column tells you how many donors you have in each level of your structure. The last column tells you how the different levels are performing and generating funds to your account. This box reports only the donors of your group from which you are receiving direct contributions to your cause. This is why it is called “Standard Team” versus “Tithe Team”.

-Bellow this section in “Sponsored Donors”, you have the list of the donors you personally sponsored with their respective status. If you click the button “more” you will be redirected to the section “Genealogy” sub section “Downline list”. Next to “Sponsored Donors” you will find the “Transaction History” where every penny that comes in or goes out of your account is reported. If you click on the word “more”, you will be redirected to the section “Wallet” subsection “Statement”.

In the box “Renewal Transaction History” you can find the information of the amount of the renewal you have been donating; the date you did it; the month you paid for; and when you will have to renew your donation. When you click the button “view more”, you will be redirected to the section “Financial Manager” subsection “Renewal Account”.

In the header of this page, you have the picture of yourself and next to it you have a bell. This bell will give you the information that you received a notification from admin regarding your request for withdrawal. Next to the bell, you have the envelope telling you if you received email from some Donors of our programs or from admin.

This concludes the basic presentation of the dashboard.

The other videos will be explaining the different sections located at the left side of the dashboard.

See you there.

Manage E-Vouchers:

- The E-vouchers can be purchased in this section with the donor funds found in the COTDP’s e-wallet. These e-vouchers can be used by prospective members who do not have a PayPal account but wish to register immediately. In this case, a sponsor can purchase an e-voucher for the prospect to use during the registration process. In order for the purchase to occur, the sponsor will need to have the funds into his/her e-wallet. The e-voucher will cost $21 for USA participants ($20 registration fee + $1 PayPal fee) and $21.50 for non-USA participants (PayPal fee is $1.50). Once the sponsor has made the purchase, he/she simply gives the prospect the full code of the e-voucher, which the prospect can use as the first donation during the registration process. The prospect gives to the sponsor the $20.00 plus one dollar for the USA and 1.50 dollars for the rest of the world for the fees charged by PayPal that your sponsor had to pay if he bought the e-voucher with some money that has been deposited in his account through PayPal. The newly registered donor can now take the time to open an account with PayPal and use it when needed.

The subsection “Purchase E-Voucher” is really very simple to use. You have the information of the balance of your account; you choose how many e-vouchers you want to buy, you get the information of the cost and you just click the button “Purchase E-Voucher”. At the top of the same screen, you will receive confirmation of your purchase. If you want to buy another e-voucher, you just click on the “Reset” button and start the same process again. You will notice that your balance drops $20.00. You can buy multiple e-vouchers at one time. However, the advantage to buying the e-vouchers one by one is that you are going to receive a confirmation email for each one of the e-vouchers you buy. That way, when you sell an e-voucher to someone, you just forward the email to your buyer. This can help you avoid mistakes when sharing the information of the e-voucher number and code.

Once you buy the e-voucher, you go to the subsection “E-Voucher bank”. At the top of the screen you can see that you have the information about how many vouchers you have bought, how many have been used, how many you have returned, and how many are available.

In the first box, called “List E-Voucher,” you select if you want the box called “E-Voucher List” to show you the e-vouchers that are available; the e-vouchers that have been used; or both together. If you want to find an e-voucher that has been used, you have to click on the circle of “Used” and then you enter the username of the person who used the e-voucher in the search section. The requested information will appear in the second box. If you want to look for another e-voucher, you click on the button “Reset”, then “Used” and then you enter the new username. The section “Return e-voucher” is very simple. If you want to return an e-voucher for some reason; you just enter the e-voucher number and e-voucher code; you click “Submit” and your e-voucher will be eliminated from your subsection “E-Voucher Bank” and your wallet will receive a credit of $20.00.

All your returned e-vouchers will be listed in the last subsection of “Manage e-voucher” called “Returned E-Voucher List”. This ends this tutorial. See you in the next one.

The Profile Manager Section

The following subsection “View Profile” will bring up all your basic information. You will be able to upload one of your pictures by clicking on the button “Edit Image”. A small window will appear. Click the button “Choose File”; Choose the file where you have the picture you want to use. Double click on the picture and you will see that the information of the picture appears next to the button. Click the button “Submit” and your picture should appear in this section. It will also appear in the header of your dashboard screen the next time you login.

The subsection “Edit Profile” allows you to change any information that needs to be modified, except your username. You can change your passwords in the ‘Login Details” section. You click over the password you want to change; you enter the actual password in the first box of the new window that appeared on your screen. Then, you have to enter the new password twice and click on the button “Change Password”. Do not forget to correct this information in your “Welcome Letter” or wherever you keep your password information. For any standard little change you are making in this page; at the end you have to click the button "Update" at the bottom of the page and the message confirming the changes will appear on the screen. This is the end of this tutorial.

See you in the next tutorial

Genealogy

The first subsection called “Matrix Tree” gives you a visual idea of the size of your group. It is a very interesting tool. In the Genealogy List box and next to your username you have a plus sign. If you click this plus sign, you will open your genealogy, one donor at a time: if you click on the words “Expand all” It will open your genealogy all at once. The reverse will happen if you click the words “Collapse All”.

Once you have a lot of donors in your group, you will be able to enter the username of a member in your group and the software will show you the direct line of parenthood with this donor.

The subsection “Personal Tree” isn’t quite as interesting; it lists your genealogy in function of your personal sponsoring, which is irrelevant considering the way our programs are working.

The subsection: “Download list” is giving you the list of all the donors of your group. You can list them by username, name, sponsor’s username or by parent’s username. In most of the case, the sponsor and parent usernames are usually the same. In some cases, a donor that sponsored his 4 required personal recruits and wants to sponsor other people without opening another account can do it the same way he register the previous donors. The difference is that the computer will place the new donors somewhere down the organization of the sponsor in the first available spot. This particular will make the downline donor receiving this new donor; a parent of the new recruit but the sponsor will always be the sponsor. This new donor would have a different username for his parent and sponsor reference. you enter the username of a donor of your group in the “Search” part, you will get informed about the status of the donor, be it sponsored, sponsoring or parenting.

The last subsection is listing the information of the donors you have sponsored personally. With no more to say about this chapter,

See you in the next tutorial

The section “Level Details” has been explained in the tutorial “Your Dashboard”.

Financial Manager

This is an important section of your back-office, even if most of the relevant financial information are well exposed in the dashboard.

The subsection “Renewal Account” is the tool you will use to renew your monthly donation. This section gives you the balance of your e-wallet as well as the amount your account received this month. If you do not already have the $20.00 required in your e-wallet, just use PayPal or Dwolla to pay your monthly donation. You checkmark the circle corresponding to the service you want to use, you click the button “Submit,” and your bank’s page will pop-up. Follow the bank instructions. If you need a refresher on how the institutions work, you can re-watch the tutorial entitled “Before Registering”. Once you get a flow of income that surpasses $20.00 per month, you will not need to use the bank system. Instead, you will use the internal e-wallet payment system. You can checkmark the “E-Wallet” option and click "Submit” or you can choose the “Automatic E-Wallet” option. This last option will give you peace of mind knowing that everything will be taken care of by itself. You will still receive the monthly renewal information and the confirmation of the payment to your email.

When you are making this transaction personally, be patient because depending of the speed of your internet, it may take a few seconds to receive the confirmation of the renewal. Wait for the confirmation message to appear on the top of your screen before doing anything else. Once the payment has been made, the information of the transaction will appear in the “Renewal History” on this same page and your wallet will be debited the amount paid for the renewal.

The following subsection is the one that everybody wants to use as soon as possible. We are talking about receiving the fruits of your participation in our programs. In order to request a withdrawal, you will have to enter the transaction password and click the green button with the magnifier. In the new window, you will have to enter the email address connected to your PayPal account. This is the system we are using to send our donations in a fast and secure way. You have to make sure that the email address is correctly written. You click the "Update Button" and a message will appear saying “Bank Details Updated Successfully!” In the "Balance Details” section you have the information of the balance of your account and next to it you will enter the amount you want us to send to your cause and in the last dark brown box called “Remark”, you enter the purpose of the request for the funds. You then click the button “Request Payout” and you will receive the message: ”Your request has been sent successfully.” We will get in touch with you to get some documents needed to back-up our donations to your cause and we will follow with the process of payment once everything is verified. You only go through this verification process once. In future transactions, you would skip this step and should receive the funds in a matter of few hours.

The last subsection covers the entire withdrawals request with the actual status of either: Pending, Rejected, or Approved.

This conclude this tutorial; see you in the next video.

Wallet

In this “Wallet” section and in the “Wallet Summary” subsection, you will find the totals of the different sub-accounts you have within your e-wallet.

Your balance is written in green. In the box called “Credit,” you have the information of the total amount received from the people of your group. Remember, this is the 5% you received from their registration donation. The second line in this box will show you the amount you received from the 5% on the renewals. When you register, and if you decide that you want to have some money in your account to buy some e-vouchers or to renew your monthly donation through your e-wallet, you can send some money to our Church and the net amount of dollars received will be deposited into your account. This line would show this deposit made to your account. The fourth line shows the credit you could have received if you returned some e-voucher at some point in time.

The debit side is telling you in the first line; the amount of money that has been debited for the money you requested to send to your cause. The second line would show a debit from admin, which is something that should never happen. The third line sums the amount of monthly donations paid through the e-wallet only. Finally, the fourth line represent the amount of money you spent buying some e-vouchers.

The last subsection called “Statement” gives you all the details of every penny that came in or went out of your e-wallet in real time.
