actually thats not true that Amway has the only store fronts in China. When I drove
down a main street in Bejing I saw a beautiful pink colored store.. on the front in big
letters I saw "Mary Kay". NuSkin who is doing over 600 million a year in China has
their store fronts as well.
What hurt SunRider in China was the 1998 laws that outlawed MLM. When they (like
others) had to quit operating as a mlm, they continued as a black market, low
visiblity operation like the majority there today.
For Amway (and NuSkin) to be paying out commissions to downlines, and recruiting
people as distributors, isnt a sign of China's approval of a company. Amway doesnt
comply with the law in China.. again MLM is illegal. Despite the amount of sales they
do in China, the law hasnt changed. NuSkin does the same thing..there are
hundreds of black market MLM's doing this...its just impossible to police it.
The December law of paying only "one" level, will be a law that Amway hasnt been
able to prevent.. or NuSkin, despite the volume they do.
Lets face the facts. All U.S. MLM's including Amway and NuSkin, are Not in
compliance with China's laws. The Only thing approved is Direct Sales... recruiting is
illegal. They just dont have the resources to police it.
There are actually hundreds of MLM's doing well in China. The current laws make it
hard for Any MLM to grow to its potential. But its a start. Any company with 10-12
million capitol, can operate in China as Amway and NuSkin are doing.
The company I work with has began (like many others) its registration process.
There is alot of room for that 1.3 Billion chinese market for everybody.
Wish you all the success in China! Jeff
