Starting a business in Poland
All Amway Business Owners, Members Plus and Members purchase products directly from Amway.
Bonuses will be paid directly to all Amway Business Owners who have earned the bonus. Bonus payments will be paid by 15th next month.
PV/BV transfers are not available.
Consolidated Line of Sponsorship (CLOS)
Twelve Eastern European Amway markets: Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Ukraine, are combined into a Consolidated Line of Sponsorship (CLOS) Region. This will allow all current and new ABOs and Members Plus to personally sponsor within and into each of these countries. Option of international sponsoring between the countries within CLOS Region is discontinued. (All businesses established before CLOS will continue to count according to international sponsoring rules.) International sponsoring from outside the CLOS Region continues to be available. If an ABO has no business in any of the countries that make up the CLOS Region, he will be allowed to establish one new business in the CLOS Region. An ABO or Member Plus who already has at least one business in the CLOS region will not be allowed to establish another one.
PV Performance Bonus
Retail margin or mark up for Amway products averages about 30% but varies with each product. The average retail margin for this market is 30%.
how to start
Starter Kit Purchasing
All of the three Amway Business Owner/Member Plus classifications may purchase a Registration set directly from Amway Business Owners or Member Plus. They must complete and sign an Amway Business Owner or Member Plus form. The form is sent to Amway Poland for processing. The Starter kit price is automatically added to their first purchase.
The online registration functionality will be implemented on 19th June 2012 for the Eastern European markets. All you have to do is to send an invitation to your prospect. Clicking on the link will direct them to an online registration form; once completed, your new applicant’s account can be immediately activated and they can place the first order. The contract, however, does need to be printed, signed and sent to Amway within 30 days. If the new applicant forgets to send it in, you will receive a reminder so that you can follow up.
An additional option is available for a prospect to register. The difference to the above procedure is that they do not need the link in the invitation. If you give your last name and distributor number to a potential new applicant, they can then go to the new website and use this data to register, set up an account and place their first order. The contract then needs to be printed, signed and sent back to Amway within 30 days.
