Ardyss International is a company originally from Mexico that has spread elsewhere in North America and the Caribbean. Their main products are “body-shaping and supporting undergarments” – yes, that’s bras, corsets and the like – even for men. Oh, and they do have extensive nutrition and skincare lines as well.
But lets look at the compensation plan.
They are a UNILEVEL, creating competition, where they encourage you to introduce 5 people, help them introduce 5, etc…
Their suggested retail price is 40% higher than the wholesale price, giving you that potential as profit or discount for your personal use.
You have 3 startup options:
Autship – free
Starter Membership Kit – $30
Power Pack – $250
Your basic pay is 5% of the value of the purchases of people in your unilevel, +10% if you are the enroller. But that’s only on your personally sponsored people. NONE on anyone else.
You also get an extra bonus on their first order – 20% or 30% (if you’re on autoship) – up to a $300 order.
40% rule – they require that no more than 40% of the volume for any qualification come from a single leg – meaning you’ll always need at least 3 legs going to hit a volume qualification.
POWER PACK BONUSES
If you join with a Power Pack you get extra bonuses when you sign a certain number of people in a certain month – based on your start date. And so does your enroller if they have a Power Pack. It includes their most popular products. It basically pays out multiplying bonuses that start at $50 for 4 signups in month 1, but can reach $10,000 in month 40 if you have 12 signups and 300,000 volume in a month by then. If you’re late, only the participant gets the money.
Ranks are a key feature of their compensation plan. For example – the first level is Coordinator, which requires 700 points that month, and either $150 of personal purchases OR $100 autoship. Then you get paid your 5% to 2 levels. The next rank gets you 3 levels, then 4 (at which point your autoship goes to $250/200). 2 levels later its 5. At the President Level its 6 – but the 6th level is only 3% (40,000 volume). The 7th Level is only 2%, the 8th level 1% (200,000 volume).
GENERATIONAL BONUSES – which break away!
At the Manager B Rank (the 5th rank – with 10,000 volume in a month) you start to earn a 4% bonus on everyone below you that is at a lower rank than you – the next Manager B in a given leg cuts you off from this bonus pool. So this could almost double your total pay just by hitting this level.
At the President level, you now get 3% on your Manager B’s and their group, up to the next Manager B – 2% after that, 1% on the next Manager B. A President will cut you off.
There’s additional quarterly money for Presidents and above, but you need to have sponsored a person who grows to the Manager A level that quarter, as well as hit the monthly volume requirement. They divide the pool into shares based on number of people who qualify, but the 1st rank Presidents get 1 share, next rank 2, 3, 4 at the top. So those people benefit 4x as much. Of course most people don’t get any benefit.
Each month you hit a rank, you get a bonus of $100-800
If you hit a certain rank 2 months in a row, you start getting a car allowance, but if you miss a rank, you only get half as much as the lower rank.
So what’s the verdict?
MAJOR QUALIFICATIONS – this is a classic unilevel where you have to keep requalifying every month for everything.
They try to make things exciting with slightly different variations on the car program and their crazy Power Pack bonus chart… but all of that is based on very specific and onerous qualifications. And they even increase your required autoship as you gain ranks.
And of course you HAVE to build 3 legs to hit any rank – maybe more if you have one massive leg that only 40% of your qualifying volume comes from. And you have to sponsor a lot of people to hit the Power Pack bonuses.
And at the early ranks you are only getting credit for a very small number of levels, so you will likely have to build very wide just to start getting the volume to hit those higher ranks. But as you do advance finally you’ll start ramping up the money a lot – because the bonuses will quickly double and triple your money. But how many people will stay around long enough to get there? And if they don’t, and don’t make much money, then you’ll keep losing people – and they won’t be happy.
This looks like a very tough and competitive program that you would have to build and build and rebuild and rebuild just to maintain your ranks – much less to advance. And of course, you’ve got a situation again where you don’t want people to hit the Manager B level or worse yet President – and start cutting off your bonus money. So you have the moral hazard of helping them to a point, then keeping them there and no further to maximize your profits.
I’d rather have higher retail profits, more desireable products, 2 legs, get credit for volume to unlimited levels, no ranks and crazy qualifications, and have many more incentives to help my people. But you can only get that at GWT.
