Why do some people post negative stuff about Amway online?

We’re one of the oldest and most recognizable businesses in our industry.

As a result, we’ve attracted a great deal of attention through the years – good and bad. While most Amway Business Owners have a positive experience with Amway, owning your own business may not be right for everyone.

Like with any business, the higher your income goal, the more effort it takes. While for some people this is motivating, others may not have what it takes. However, if anyone is ever dissatisfied, Amway is so confident in its business and products that they provide a Satisfaction Guarantee on its products and business registration fee. If you’re not satisfied, you can get your money back.
