I like the compensation plan. It’s a cheap and easy way to get started in the organization. The commission payment is fair. There is an immediate reward of 25% retail plus 15% bonus on direct sales to customers. The downline has unlimited depth and width. Referrals earn you 30% paid down four levels and you need only sell $40.00 a month to qualify. I also like the leadership bonuses. The literature states that "infinity bonuses are paid on all levels up to 18%. There is also a 2% galaxy generational bonus on the top builder’s group volume".

I am so overwhelmed at the number of players in the MLM health, wellness, and nutritional marketplace. Youngevity is going strong with some pretty powerful claims about its products. How is anyone to know the accuracy of these claims?

I have a friend who is using the products and swears she feels better. She is on the colon detoxifier and several of the fat burners. I am going to refer you to the website to review all the products. You will find fat metabolizers, super foods, antioxidants, aloe vera, cell protectors, bone builders and concentrated fruits and vegetables. If Youngevity’s products are any better than any of the others available, I would really like to know why. The only statement I could get from Youngevity is that the products are produced to pharmaceutical grade standards. Who knows?

Because this is a young company, I would check them out very carefully and see if I could get a financial report if they are not privately held. Also, find someone who is working as a distributor and discuss the level of satisfaction they have with the product, the customer support, the ordering and shipping process, and the complaint process, if any.
