Infinitus MLM Review

Hey there sea changers, and welcome back to my series of MLM reviews. Today we are going to take a look into another multi-product company with my Infinitus MLM Review. Based on Chinese medicine, their range of products covers many of the popular MLM niches and works predominately within the Australasian market. So, what is the Infinitus MLM all about? Let's have a look and see…

What is MLM?

Multi-level marketing (MLM) programs are the traditional mainstay of the ‘party plan' world of products such as Tupperware, Mary Kay and Amway etc. and, of course within the beauty/cosmetics, supplements and home care markets. There is of course a lot of stigma around the network marketing model however MLMs have become more popular in recent times – mainly due to the fact that much of the sales and marketing is now being managed online.

The ‘multi level' aspects of MLM come from its hierarchical nature in which you make commissions based not only on those that you sell to, but also the sales of those whom you ‘sign' into membership arrangements as well.

In short, the process works as follows:

  1. You join the program, either via referral from another person (known as your up line) or directly through their website.
  2. You promote the products of the company via parties, workshops or online.
  3. As you make sales, you offer incentives to your customers to sign up as a member of the program (there are different names for this but they all mean the same thing).
  4. That new member is then placed ‘underneath' you in a hierarchical arrangement (known as your down line).
  5. You, and a number of levels of your up line, then gain extra commissions for everything they sell as well.
  6. If they manage to refer their customers into memberships, they also become a member of your down line allowing you to make up line commissions as well.

The number of levels of your up and down lines will vary depending on the program you have joined. Commission rates will also change as your down line grows or contracts and many will also offer other incentives such as total company sales percentages and/or access to membership prizes as your own business grows.

Who are Infinitus?

Infinitus MLM Review - Home

Infinitus was founded in 1992 with a mission of “Advocating the excellence of Chinese wellness traditions for a healthy life with balance, abundance and harmony”. There is no record of the name of the actual founder that I could find however they do form part of the large LKK Health Products Group.

Infinitus run to a core value – “Si Li Ji Ren” which translates to “the interest of all of us should be considered before taking any actions” and are based in Hong Kong.

What do they Sell?

As mentioned above, Infinitus work within a large range of product niches with a category range as follows:

Health Food

  • Infinitus Series of Chinese based health supplements
Infinitus MLM Review - Supplements

Skin Care

  • Beautrio series of firmers, cleansers, toners and eye creams etc.

Personal Care

  • Phytocare mouth care, haircare and shower products
Infinitus MLM Review - Phytocare products

Home Care

  • Homemate Laundry and dishwashing concentrates

Health Care

  • Benelife health care pillow

Unfortunately, product costs are not shown on the website without a member login.

MLM Program outline

The Infinitus MLM program calls their members ‘distributors' who are part of a binary based program with a number of interesting commission and bonus options included. Their compensation plan did not appear on their website however I did locate a Canadian option via a simple web search. To be honest, I have looked at a lot of compensation plans in my time and found this one a little confusing. Regardless, here are the details as I have found them noting that some options may change dependent upon country and currency…

Base Commission rate: up to 10%

Down line commission rates: 0.5 – 1.5% to 9 levels (level 1 down line is 1.5% – rank Sales Manager and above)

Minimum monthly spend to qualify for commissions

To qualify for downline commissions, Distributors are required to meet monthly personal PV targets of at least 1000 per month. This can be made of personal or customer sales. This includes the base sales bonus commissions.

Payment terms: Monthly.

Application required?: Yes, Application form on website.

Purchase requirements to join: Not stated

Marketing materials provided: As per starter kit above.

Within most MLM programs, rankings and commissions are determined by the total personal PV (PPV) generated by the Distributor and their down line within a calendar month with points assigned to each product. These point allocations can range from 50 to 100% of the retail price of each product (before tax and shipping) and vary from item to item and currency of sale.

In the case of the Infinitus MLM program, there is no outline as to how PPV is calculated.

How can I get paid?

Ok, so from what I can garner from the compensation plan, there are 5 ways in which Distributors can make money when they promote and sell Infinitus products. As above, I have really struggled to make sense of these and there appears to be a number of payment options that work on group revenue rather than simple individual sales. The 5 payment options for the Infinitus MLM program are outlined as follows:

1. Basic Sales Bonus

These are the base commissions earned by the general day to day retail sales that Distributors can generate. There are five tiers as follows:

The commission amounts above appear to be calculated on the group volume rather than personal volume then paid on PPV as part of a group total as follows (note – adjustments made for CAD currency)

2. Extra Sales Bonus

The Extra Sales Bonus pays 12.5% on any GV that exceeds 10,000 in a calendar month.

3. Performance Bonus

The Performance bonus pays up to 6% based on the total sales made within the Distributor's Organization (OV) as follows:

4. Leadership Bonus

The Leadership Bonus is Infinitus' version of the traditional downline commission structures prevalent within many MLM programs. Within the Infinitus MLM program, commissions are paid to 9 generational levels based on the rank of the Distributor as follows:

Distributors must be at rank of Sales Manager and above to qualify for the Leadership Bonus.

5. Market Bonus

The Market Bonus is another commonly utilised network marketing payment option that pays higher ranking distributors a portion of the total company global revenue. These payments are made as follows:

Ranking structure

Infinitus, as with most MLM programs, uses ranking structures on which to base commission payments and other bonuses upon. Rankings for the Infinitus MLM program are as follows (note personal and team sales qualification targets as well):

Infinitus MLM Review - rank 1
Infinitus MLM Review - rank 2

Again, as is common with almost all MLM programs, rank progression is determined by both the number of members within the Stylist's down line, and the total sales made by those members per month. Ranks can rise and fall based on the ability (or dis-ability) to reach the required member and sales targets.

What is good about it?

So, after a good look around the site and looking at all the options I could find, I do like the following:

  • Company is well-known in the Asian market.
  • There do not appear to be any joining costs.

What is no so good about it?

There are also some things to be aware of including:

  • Base level sales commission rates are low.
  • Program is quite confusing.
  • Sales targets are required for all sales.

How much can you make?

Infinitus provides the following income disclosure statement and from it it can be seen that with most MLM programs, the percentage of members making the upper rank levels – and hence earning a living – is very low.

My final thoughts

Look, MLM is not an easy platform to make money in and again, in the interests of honesty, this one does look like it may be just a little harder to earn in than others out there – please correct me below if this is inaccurate however. The program is a little confusing but does have some with common commission arrangements and a few bonus options thrown in. It does also appear to be heavily based on growing a downline as many of the commissions are run of group sales rather than personal.

Additionally, there is the added financial pressures of needing to make minimum personal purchases in order to qualify for commissions meaning you may also need to bump up your personal purchase quota if customer sales alone are not enough for you to remain ‘Active' and qualify for commissions within a particular month.

I was unable to locate any negative reviews in terms of non-payment etc. although there were some negative comments about the quality of customer service and the MLM program itself – although it was not really anything that is uncommon in regards to MLM programs or products within this niche.

Hey there, my name is Paul and I am the owner and founder of Make That Sea Change.  I spent 30 years in a cubicle working the 9 to 5 grind and just wanted to live at the beach.  I was lucky enough to achieve that with the help of my wife and our new Pilates studio.

Then I decided to help fund my new sea change with some affiliate marketing.  I joined Wealthy Affiliate, and as they say, the rest is history.

Note: This is an unbiased review as I am not a member of the any of the programs listed here (and hence make no commissions from any of the links included within this post). The reason for this is that I prefer to write these posts based on what a newbie would be seeing if they were interested in joining – that way I feel I can make a better judgment on what it is that these companies are offering within their programs.
