The Market America company is the world’s leading product brokerages making people their own business owners since 1992. The company was founded by Loren and JR Ridinger. The couple had a dream to help people become their own entrepreneurs from the comfort of home. This dream has allowed over half a million people to spend more time with their family and friends without forgoing an income. Market America is known as the “Unfranchise” because the requirements and rules to sell their products is far better than most localized franchise businesses. You will be responsible for purchasing a website package from Market America which includes a site builder, domain name and hosting information. You can design your site anyway that you want using their available eCommerce plugins for effortless checkout. Products are sold on a commission-basis and you will receive a small amount of money for each item you sell. Independent distributors can make anywhere from a few hundred dollars a month to a few thousand depending on how well they market.
The company is able to provide these products thanks to affiliate manufacturing corporations that design and create the products being sold. The products you can choose to sell range from cosmetics to pet health supplies and everything in between. The lines are called Isotonix, Pet Health, Super Foods, Royal Spa and Snap. Many distributors find that the more product lines they sell on their sites, the more commission they will receive. Others focus on one or two specific product lines to cater to a more niche market. Purchasing your website package is all part of the startup fee required to become an independent contractor through Market America itself. You will then be responsible for paying a $100 distributor fee to keep your site active. You can also find all of these products on the Market America Shop.com site, which was purchased from Bill Gates in 2012.
Distributors are also required to attend seminars and conventions to retain their rights to sell all M.A. products. These seminars can cost anywhere from $100 to $400, and this is all part of continuing your work with the company and keeping your product site active.
