Plan Basics


Purchasing Products
All Independent Business Owner’s may purchase products directly from Amway.

Bonus Payment
Bonuses will be paid directly to all Independent Business Owner’s who have earned the bonus. Bonus payments will only be paid by direct deposit.

PV/BV Transfers
PV/BV transfers will be available through the Bonus Department at Amway Australia.

Single Line of Sponsorship
Australia & New Zealand operate as a single line of sponsorship. International sponsoring is not allowed between these two countries. Business volume generated in both countries will be consolidated for yearly qualifications and bonus purposes. This Single Line Of Sponsorship is used for personal sponsoring and bonus calculation (since September 2005). All businesses prior to this date are under the International sponsor rules (benefits for annual bonus calculation only for Emeralds and above).

Establish a Second Business

International Sponsoring
International sponsoring is always an option and an excellent means of expanding your business while avoiding many of the costs and complexities associated with establishing a second business. Please note: For those markets where foreigners are able to establish a second business, they must be the international sponsor of their second business in another country.

As complex business and legal issues are involved, Independent Business Owners should always contact the affiliate at and obtain the advice of local legal counsel before attempting to establish a second business.

There are several business vehicles available for establishing a second business in Australia, each with its own legal requirements (a local bank account, Management Agreement and Non-resident Agreement are required for all). The most common methods are as follows:

1. By entering the country personally and establishing and building a business subject to residency requirements;

2. By forming a Limited Liability Corporation which would establish a branch office (a holder of an Australian Registered Body Number: ARBN) in Australia;

3. By forming an Australian Limited Liability Corporation which would have its shareholders/directors as principals of the Independent Business.

If you elect to establish a business in Australia by options two or three, you will also need to complete the Application and Related forms for corporate IBOs available from Amway Australia Legal Services:
Phone: 61-2-9854-8100
Fax: 61-2-9843-2293

You may want to consult with a local lawyer or business consultant to obtain advice on which would be the best vehicle to accomplish your goals.

Contact the Australian Embassy in your country of residence to obtain visa application information.
