Minimum compensation level for the state - Wells Fargo Wholesale

We haven't been sending loans to Wells Fargo for over a year, but one of their updates on LO Compensation from last week has an example of Lender-paid compensation and they mention a "Minimum compensation level for the state". which for the example they show it to be $2000. In the example due to loan size the actual calculated compensation comes out to $1,150, then their example shows that the net compensation is short $850 of this "Minimum compensation level for the state", and then states that The $850 equals a cost to the consumer to complete the brokerís compensation. This sounds like the consumer would be paying this $850 even though this is a "Lender paid compensation" example.

Has anyone doing regular business with Wells figured out what they are doing here and if this "Minimum compensation level for the state" is just a Wells thing, or something that everyone will be following. They also have an example with a "Maximum compensation level for the state"

Any feed back here?

I can't get any feedback from Wells Fargo AE. Their videos on website are worthless.

All they do is send News Flash after News Flash.

They want it to be vague......good luck!
