The Good

  • International availability
  • Medical and Scientific Advisory Board
  • Mobile app

International Availability

Synergy Worldwide has one of the highest employee satisfaction ratings in the multi-level marketing industry on Glassdoor. The Utah-based company currently holds a 3.9 out of 5 stars rating. Since its start in Japan, Synergy Worldwide has grown internationally with a presence in more than 26 countries. Synergy Worldwide's international presence allows distributors to build an extensive network around the world while maintaining a uniform brand.

Medical and Scientific Advisory Board

In support of its health claims, Synergy Worldwide has a Medical and Scientific Advisory Board (MSAB) in place to assist in the research and development of its products. Members of the MSAB maintain active practices and are published in scientific journals. To gain a better idea of the qualifications of two MSAB members:

Luis N. Pacheco, M.D.:

  • Emmy Award-winning doctor
  • Board-certified in family medicine
  • Active medical practice in Southern California

Dr. Matthew Tripp:

  • PhD from Washington State University
  • Leadership and R&D roles at companies such as:
    • Kellogg Company
    • Metagenics

Mobile App

To meet the needs of its on-the-go distributors, Synergy Worldwide has a mobile app available for Apple and Android devices.The Synergy mobile app has features which allow distributors to do the following:

  • Share: Have your prospect take action by sharing a sample, testimonial or business opportunity via text or email
  • 3-Way Call: Ask your upline to help and get on the phone with your prospect at the right time for everyone
  • Media: Share a video and get instant feedback for when and how many times your prospects watched the video

The Bad

  • Low commissions

Low Commission

Synergy Worldwide's base commission is lower than other health-focused multi-level marketing companies at 10 percent. The 10 percent commission is worse than average so distributors will receive a lower commission per item. Here are the expected earnings after selling $1,000 of products and $10,000 of products respectively:

  • $1,000: $54 payout
  • $10,000: $954 payout

The Bottom Line

Synergy Worldwide maintains a focus on the health and nutrition industry which can be a great thing if you're interested in the possibility of improving your physical and financial health. The multi-level marketing company is supported by a medical advisory board composed of educated, established medical practitioners.

Synergy Worldwide has a diverse presence in more than 20 countries such as Austria, Germany, and the Philippines. Distributors also start at a lower-than-average base commission if they choose to sign up with Synergy Worldwide. Since the base commission is low, distributors will also experience a lower payout to start which can be discouraging to first-time distributors. Our recommendation? Consider enrolling with a multi-level marketing company with a higher base commission.

I did a test product & worked with their Survey company named Global - it was the worse experience I have ever had. I have had to go to a State office of Consumer Issue of Test Products to try to get my claim resolved - when you call Synergy they say they can't help me - when you call Global Survey phone # all you get is voice mail - this has been going on for 3 months. I am very disappointed in Synergy.
