Amway Business Plan
Amway has two revenue streams, direct selling, and multi-level marketing. The company follows the stair step breakaway compensation plan, which is the oldest type of MLM compensation plans. There is a header which says “We Are Our Own Bosses” which seems to be quite appealing.
The plan is comprised of different levels of career path. The first stage is a direct distributor, who attains the further following levels.
- Silver Producer
- Gold Producer
- Platinum Producer
- Q 12
A Distributor immediate income is a total amount you make from product sales minus the total amount it costs to buy an inventory.
For instance: If you purchase $1,000 worth of inventory each month and sell $3,000 worth of product, then your immediate income for the month is $2,000.
Each month you purchase a product for yourself and this is your PV (Personal Volume) when you introduce a new distributor it adds to your PV and rewards increases accordingly as this is root on which the growth of turnover is achieved. As the % increases, bonus paid increases as well until you reach each step in the plan, starting at 3% and rising to 21%. Those are provided from the presentation given by an IBO and this may no longer be accurate however the principle remains the same.
