Founded in 2002 by CEO Rolf Sorg, PM International is a family-owned health and wellness company headquartered in Luxembourg, Germany. PM International also has three other main offices scattered across the globe. In fact, the company conducts business in over 30 countries and has 150,000 independent distributors. The company’s mission is “to help people live life to its fullest.”
PM International manufactures and distributes over 30 high-quality products, including nutritional supplements and cosmetics, to consumers all over the world. These products are manufactured according to the industry's "Good Manufacturing Practices" to ensure optimal quality and safety for consumers. PM International offers its customers a 30-day money back guarantee on unopened purchases returned in resalable condition.
The initial business startup cost to join as a PM International independent distributor is $99. PM International provides its new independent distributors with support through upline sponsors, sales and marketing materials, and video and phone conferences. PM International also offers a luxury car program, exotic vacations, and a pension program for its distributors.
PM International offers a matrix compensation plan to its independent distributors, which means that distributors earn income through group volume on retail product sales, "Top Retailer" bonuses on total points, performance bonuses, and management bonuses. The company also offers a 20 percent discount on personal purchases to distributors, a 10 percent wholesale margin to sponsored team members, and a 15 percent commission on customers' product purchases.
PM International is an upstanding member of the Direct Selling Association and abides fully with its strict Code of Ethics.
PM International has received endorsements from renowned athletic organizations, ensuring that its products are safe for athletes around the word and contain no banned substances or stimulants. In addition, PM International sponsors over 500 children around the globe through its partnership with non-profit organization World Vision. Overall, it appears that PM International is a reputable and legitimate health and wellness company with over 13 years of experience in the multi-level marketing industry.
PM International does not offer detailed information regarding its business opportunities on its corporate website. PM International has not posted any scientific clinical studies to back up its nutritional claims either. The company could improve by providing more specific information on its website.
Ranging from $28 to $438, PM International's products can be expensive, especially for consumers on a budget.
PM International has not provided an income earnings disclosure statement, so the actual earnings of its independent distributors on a yearly basis cannot be determined at this time. Judging by the commission percentages offered by the company, it appears that distributors must generate large sales volumes in order to earn an income large enough to live on exclusively.
Independent distributors who would like to sell products online are required to pay a $120 fee each year.
While PM International provides some basic business materials to help independent distributors get started with their new business ventures, the nutraceutical company does not offer any advanced sales or marketing training to its distributors. Those individuals who are completely new to the multi-level marketing industry may choose to seek out additional business training on their own.
Though I like FitLine products, I will no longer be using them due to shady company practices by the parent company, PM International. The only representative I know is a nice woman, but unreliable as I cannot contact her by phone, email or text unless she herself contacts me through Facebook Messenger. She set me up so I could place orders directly from PM International and I thought the problem was solved, only to find that the PM International website is often not working properly and there is NO support. When I was finally able to place an order, it took forever to get my products. This happens each time I order, until this last and final time. When I placed the order, my credit card was immediately charged in full (over $330) and I still have not received my order. Emails are ignored and here I am, 34 days later trying to either get my order or get a refund. A phone call today still has no results. After mostly being left on hold, I was told they are looking into it and will call me back. If I do not hear back from them by tomorrow, I will be reporting this to my credit card company as a fraudulent charge.
I have been using FitLine products for over 23 years and have had phenomenal results not only in prevention but over the years have been able to lose weight, helped me with my fitness goals, and kept my health in check very pleased with the product. I became a distributor as a result and have reached a high-level with their easy system and super support . I have been able to build a global business stay at home with my children meet fantastic people take part in wonderful incentives & most importantly help people stay healthy with superior products that are safe and effective. PM-International is like family .
