Is Melaleuca Scam or Genuine? Review

In brief, Melaleuca is very old MLM company and paying on time to its members. So, as per our Melaleuca review, we can’t say is a scam. But it doesn’t mean that we are recommending you to work in this company. Actually, we don't recommend because we have found lots of complaints against its customer service.

It is also very hard to earn from it because it is already old and there are lots of competition to sell its products. Actually, the demand is lower than supply. The brand name of this company is also not so popular. So, it will be difficult for us to sell its products and recruit people in this company.

It sounds excellent, right? NOT SO FAST.

Although, it looks like a good company but also many members as well as consumers are not satisfied with their products and services. If you are looking at this company to make some money out of it, then better you stay far away from it. Why? Let's check it out in “How to earn money from Melaleuca” caption as below.

How to earn money from Melaleuca?

You can join for free. But it is really difficult to make money from this site/company. There are some bonuses shown on their website, and it seems like there are many ways to make money from this company comparing with other MLM companies. But most of the bonuses are only available for higher ranking affiliates. It means there is no chance to earn those bonuses for new members, specially for free members.

Its membership is free but, you have to purchase their products. You also have to recruit the new members and sell the products as much as you can. So, it only looks like free, but without investment from your side or your recruits, there is no chance you can earn money here.

On top of that, it is an old company, so it will be more difficult for you to sell their products because competition is high to sell its products as there are already lots of members who are already selling these products from many years.

Actually, the main reason you see lots of positive Melaleuca reviews is only because those members who are promoting these products are posting the reviews of Melaleuca products. So, by observing only those Melaleuca product reviews, you can guess yourself how much competition you have to face in order to sell the products of Melaleuca.

Drawbacks of Melaleuca

  1. It's free to join in, however you or your referrals have to purchase or sell their products in order to earn money from it. So, without you or your referral investment, you can't earn money from this company. And if you won’t able to sell the products or recruit members, you will earn nothing from it.
  2. Many costumers had complained about its costumer service. Even you can find lots of issues like some costumers had returned the products to the company and claim their money back as per the TOS of the company. But most of the time, the response from the company is very bad on those cases. Even many members have reported that their money kept on cutting from their credit card after the cancellation of membership, even up to more than 3 months.
  3. All the bonuses are only available for top higher ranking affiliates so, there is no chance to earn bonuses for new members.
  4. Members claim that some affiliates forced to purchase the products which they have never ordered. When members return those stuffs, the company asked them to pay for the return shipment, lol. How ridiculous that can be? How could they force the members like that even mistakenly. It seems they only care about how to take money and doesn't care about customer service at all. So, we can say its customer service is very bad.


Due to the reasons mentioned earlier in this Melaleuca review, we don’t recommend you to work with Melaleuca. It is not a scam, but many of its members are having trouble to earn money from it. Even most of them have left this company after working for 5-6 months because more than 95% members failed to make even a penny from this company. So, it is better to stay away from these kinds of companies if you want to join them only to make money.
