Amway apologists claim that IBOs would not make money by enrolling new members. Yet the IBOs concentrate only on enrollment. WHY?
Every IBO must purchase products worth Rs. 2000 every month to maintain basic PV; otherwise he is not entitled commission. They should purchase products every month either for sale or for personal consumption. Since they could not sell these overpriced 'wampum', they keep on concentrate on enrolling new members all the time.
Amway is now collecting Rs. 995 for every new member enrolled and in return it offers a couple of CDs and other things. That way it is lining its pockets. Moreover, every year the IBOs have to renew the membership by paying Rs. 995 which is another way of looting the IBOs. That is why, IBOs who could not enroll members drop out of the scheme. Still, they do not complain but blame themselves for poor performance. They never realise that the scheme is inherently fraudulent.
Some overenthusiastic IBOs purchase more products spending several lakhs of rupees and burn their fingers like B Sujata of Vijayawada.
So, the conclusion is, the IBOs concentrate only on enrollment all the time instead of selling products because they could not sell the overpriced products in spite of the claims of 'great quality'.
