Legit Vs Is it going to work for me?
The first thing we need to clarify is the difference between if Market America is legit or legal, and if Market America is going to work for you. One does not necessarily mean the other as just because something has not worked for someone, does not make it illegal. So let?s begin with if the company is legit

This should be one of the first signs of a company’s credibility. Pyramid schemes are illegal. The company is very visible online with a lot of things public. If the company was a scam or illegal but was around for 27+ year, either the government is not doing their job very well, or Market America is Legal

Understanding Pyramid vs MLM vs Market America?s Unfranchise system
A lot of the skepticism comes from the lack of understanding of what these terms mean.
To make it simple , a pyramid has no product, and promises payment based on recruitment. Sometimes a product is in place but just as a mask. There is no customers and money is made from recruitment, not from product moving to end consumer. This structure is illegal
Example Of MLM Structure
MLM or Multi Level Marketing Is where Distributors Recruit new Distributors and get paid Percentages on downlines depending on which level they are in. So if Level 1 sells $100 worth of product, then Distributor would get paid 80% on that. This goes down per level and eventually reaches 1 or 0 %. This is a legal Structure.
Example of Market America?s UnFranchise System
The Unfranchise System was founded with the purpose of changing the MLM industry, and ended up creating a new industry. In Market America, there is no levels and is therefore not MLM. You get 100% regardless of ?Level?, and no payment for recruitment. 70% of the income comes from moving products to customers.
This made it possible for average people to earn an income, since mass recruiting is very difficult. The Unfranchise Business was designed for average people who put in work, to actually make an income being their own boss, you can learn more about the business here
