Why doesn’t Amway sell in stores?

We don’t sell our products in retail stores because the Amway direct selling business model is built on the personal customer service and thoughtful product recommendations from an Amway Business Owner who knows the products and their benefits.

That’s what sets direct selling apart from traditional brick-and-mortar and online retail.  It’s a face to face business and we believe our business owners do a great job of taking care of their customers because they have a vested interest in doing keeping them happy and developing a repeat customer base.

But, to be clear, Amway has a robust online ordering system that many customers use for product purchases and reorders, so you can continue to purchase Amway products online and interact with an Amway Business Owner as much or as little as you’d like.
