The average monthly Gross Income for “active” IBOs was $202.
Approximately 46% of all IBOs were active.
U.S. IBOs were considered “active” in months in 2010 when they attempted to make a retail sale, or presented the Amway IBO Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or attended an Amway or IBO meeting. “Gross Income” means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus monthly bonuses and cash incentives. It excludes all annual bonuses and cash incentives, and all non-cash awards. There may be significant business expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years of operation.
Joe's Commentary: Previously, Amway's average income was $115 a month, but also disregarded IBOs who "did nothing". In this report, it looks like Amway disregarded an additional 20% of IBOs when calculating the figure. Viewers should also note that there might be large pins included who drive the average up.
Based only on PV/BV, and depending on your business structure, you would have to be approximately at the 9% or 12% level (1000 PV) in order to earn a bonus in the neighborhood of $200. Being that most IBOs do little or nothing, and most people cannot sponsor any downline, I would make an educated guess that the vast majority of IBOs will never achieve the average income.
So what would the typical IBO earn? I can't say for sure but taking a look at the "plan" that many IBOs show, I'd say the average rank and file IBO earns about $10 a month from Amway plus any difference between wholesale and retail, if that IBO sells products to actual customers.
