Unauthorized Retail Selling

Unauthorized Retail Selling


Dear Platinum and above Leader:

In March, we communicated to you about unauthorized product sales on retail sites like Ebay and Amazon. At that time, we sought your assistance in communicating to downline IBOs that selling products on these sites, or providing product for others to sell, violated the IBO Rules of Conduct (Rule 4.5) and would not be tolerated.

We would love to be able to share with you today that unauthorized online product sales are no longer an issue, but unfortunately, the problem still exists. We continue to take measures to identify and sanction IBOs who are selling products on these sites. In fact, this year more than 200 IBOs have been sanctioned and 1500 product auctions have been removed, but our efforts have not been enough to stop the unauthorized sale of product.

Because you are a business leader, we are once again seeking your assistance in educating downline IBOs that selling products through unauthorized retail web sites (or providing products for others to sell) not only violates the IBO Rules of Conduct, but damages the businesses of fellow IBOs and affects the reputation of IBOs and Amway.

Amway and the IBOAI hear from IBOs on a daily basis who are affected by unauthorized online sales – IBOs who have spent the time and effort servicing their customers and teaching them about the features and benefits of Amway products only to lose them to someone who undermines their efforts by selling products online. Here are some quotes from Amway IBOs:

“We are losing our business and credibility thanks to the people violating the rules.”

“These people are taking customers from IBOs and I lost a sale because of them.”

“This is a major concern as I have already lost a customer.”

“I just lost a customer and money. If this continues, I will lose hope.”

Purchasing from unauthorized retail web sites is also bad for customers:

  • Products offered for sale through these sites are being sold by IBOs outside of the contractual agreement with Amway or are being sold by individual third parties (non-IBOs) who are not authorized to sell Amway products
  • They are not covered by the Amway Satisfaction Guarantee or any warranties
  • Amway cannot guarantee the products are not expired, counterfeit or tampered with
  • When purchasing from unauthorized sites, customers miss out on the valuable product knowledge and personalized service that IBOs offer

Your support is needed in communicating to downline IBOs that selling products on Ebay and Amazon, or supplying products for others to sell, is damaging to EVERYONE and will not be tolerated.

Working in partnership, we can be successful in curbing this problem.

Renewal of Membership and Password Reset

There have been some questions concerning passwords being reset on the site. Let me try to explain.

When we went to a new site last year the script was updated to move the usernames from your IBO number to your email address. This change would not take place until you renewed your membership. If you login with your IBO number and are asked to renew your membership, after you renew, your new username will be your email address and your password will also be reset.

When you renew an email is sent to you with your new username and password. If your emails are not being received they maybe going to your spam folder, so please make sure to go in and add the eibiz.net domain as not spam.

After your renewal, as long as you continue to use the same email address you use as your username, your password will not reset again. However, at anytime your update your username during the renewal process, your password will reset. This is for security purposes.

Of course, at any time you are having trouble you can send an email to webmaster@eibiz.net and I will respond to you promptly.
