The cost to join the business opportunity as a Max International independent distributor is $49, which is lower than the industry average. There is a $35 annual renewal fee.

Commissions and Bonuses

The Bad

  • Signup Process
  • Sales Minimums
  • Lack of Pricing Information
  • Lawsuits
  • Past Struggles

Signup Process

Signing up as a Max International customer or new distributor online is not easy. In order to do so, an individual must know the ID number of another independent distributor. The company could make the process easier by assigning a sponsor at the time of enrollment.

Sales Minimums

Distributors must meet a sales quota of 100 PV each month in order to be eligible to receive weekly and monthly commissions.

Lack of Pricing Information

Max International does not disclose pricing information on its corporate website, which can be frustrating for potential customers.

Lawsuits

Max International has been involved in a number of lawsuits in the past. In 2011, the company paid a $1.2 million settlement to Melaleuca because Max International was accused of poaching members from the Melaleuca sales force.

During that same time, Max International was also accused of patent infringement by Tripharma because Tripharma claimed that Max International allegedly engaged in false and improper marketing, labeling, and advertising concerning its MaxWLX product.

Tripharma also claimed that Max International violated a marketing and supply agreement between the two companies when it did not purchase the agreed minimum ingredient amount for the MaxWLX product from Tripharma. Max International believed the suit was without merit and filed counterclaims.

Past Struggles

A few years ago, Max International failed to pay over $37,000 in donations raised for nonprofit organization Prevent Child Abuse Utah. Commission payments and bonuses were also delayed during this time because Max International was struggling to keep up with product demand and maintain positive cash flow.

The Bottom Line

Max International is a nutritional supplements company with over 10 years of experience. Upfront costs to join the business opportunity are low and distributors have the opportunity to earn several commissions and bonuses.

Additionally, the company provides a training program and a mobile app for its distributors. However, Max International has faced multiple lawsuits in the past and requires its distributors to maintain monthly personal volume minimums in order to receive commissions.

I have been in this company for 8.5 years. The products are backed by science with the 1st human trial beginning out of Uni Otago. The science is important, the Nagasawa's are precise and passionate. I have auto-immune and I will never stop using Riboceine. The company is an expert about Glutathione, the business reflects that. The world needs to know about Glutathione.

Products are ok, management not so good, they get influenced by the big kinpings and let aside the daily struggle of it reps. Products are overpriced (specially for 3rd world countries) and difficult to sell to others than the wealhty class , most of the people use them for sometime before stop taking them, meaning that prospecting is a endless struggle. Overall not recomended.

Their products do exactly as promised. They work well. I've personally used them for three years and have been impressed by my excellent level of health that I directly attribute to my ability to maintain a very active lifestyle compared to many others my age who are now suffering major decline in quality of their lives due to diseases etc caused by inflammation and toxicity that underscores many illnesses they are now experiencing.
