No Startup Fees
Atomy does not require individuals to pay a startup fee in order to become independent distributors. Atomy members are classified into five different types of dealerships as distributors, depending on the total purchased sales volume and monthly commission level received by the company. In consecutive order, these five levels are Sales Representatives, Agents, Special Agents, Dealers, and Exclusive Distributors.
Atomy offers a binary compensation plan with unlimited levels. Generated personal volume continually accumulates and never gets taken away from. Atomy members are eligible to receive 44 percent commissions on their entire sales personal volume generated weekly. Once individuals have accumulated at least 10,000 PV, they are eligible to start receiving commissions on the personal volume of recruited team members. Members can also receive a 2 percent multi-matching bonus and a 20 percent matching bonus. Atomy claims to be the number one company for highest amounts of incentives paid.
No Inventory Requirements
Distributors sell Atomy products through online shopping malls. However, Atomy does not require its independent distributors to purchase or keep inventory.
Rewards and Incentives
Atomy offers its distributors multiple ways to achieve various promotions, rewards, and incentives. These financial perks and incentives include travel tickets, car rentals, studio apartment rentals, laptop computers, and paid assistant salaries. Atomy is one of the few companies to offer these types of perks and incentives.
Distributors may be intimidated by the 10,000 PV sales minimum. However, Atomy attributes several personal volume points to affordable products. Atomy appears to give consumers an interesting way to earn significant income and achieve higher sales ranks without breaking household budgets.
- Must have sponsor ID
- Little information on website
- Commission cap
- Lack of training
Must Have Sponsor ID
Setting up an Atomy account to shop as a customer or to enroll as an independent distributor requires a sponsor's ID number. The company could make this process much simpler for consumers by providing the option to automatically be assigned a sponsor at the time of enrollment.
Little Information on Website
Atomy does not disclose much of the information on its corporate website to the general public. Many of the pages cannot be accessed by users who do not have accounts. Additionally, the website could provide a better understanding what Atomy offers and how to make money with the business opportunity.
The total amount of commissions a member receives cannot exceed 35 percent of total sales income. All calculations regarding commissions and bonuses are automatically set to this limit. This limitation impacts earning potentials for distributors with higher sales ranks.
Lack of Training
Atomy does not appear to offer significant support or training to its independent distributors. In order to achieve higher sales ranks and make a significant amount of money in the multi-level marketing industry, sales and marketing skills are typically very important. Individuals without this previous experience in these areas may choose to pursue additional training on their own or consider other opportunities.
The Bottom Line
Atomy is a multi-level marketing company that offers a multitude of cosmetics and skin care products. The company does not charge any initial startup fees to join the business opportunity and products are affordable for most consumers. Atomy utilizes a binary compensation plan that allows distributors to earn up to 44 percent commissions on their entire sales personal volume each week. The company also offers other generous and lucrative incentives and bonuses. However, Atomy does not provide much in the way of support and training for its independent distributors. Additionally, the company has a commission cap in place that restricts distributors from receiving more than 35 percent commissions on total sales volume.
