In addition to the accounting units above, Lyoness also offer four other tiers that function in the same manner as the AC I accounting unit commissions: Within the Lyoness compensation plan there are a total of 8 levels of membership.At each level members are awarded a bonus as well as an increase on the amount they earn per accounting unit they receive a bonus on.
If this was the extent of the Lyoness compensation plan then, apart from it not really being MLM my conclusion would stop short here.
For each earnt in commissions generated, paid out in cashback bonuses (both direct cashback and referral cashbacks) or put down by members as a downpayment towards a gift card or payment, the company counts you as having generated one ‘accounting unit’.
For each accounting unit you generate, when 35 of the same units have been generated by your left binary team and 35 by your right team (for a total of 70), your accounting unit is redeemable for a 5 commission.
Once a member of Lyoness, members are issued a “cashback card” which can then grants the user a cashback on specific purchases from partnered retailers (loyalty partners).
Whereas the Lyoness international compensation plan is confusing and presented poorly, Lyoness in the US have stripped out some of the more confusing aspects of the plan and streamlined it down.
