It’s likely that you have come across Xyngular through an email list, on social media or got it recommended by a friend or family member.
Is Xyngular a scam or a pyramid scheme?
Are you someone who wants to enjoy being healthy, losing weight whilst making money? If so maybe a friend of yours has recommended you check out Xyngular as it supposedly does all of the above.
Of course there’s a reason why you’re here maybe you believe it’s too good to be true, maybe there’s a catch right…
First and foremost I must commend you for actually doing a bit of extra research before committing to joining Xyngular. For all you could have known, the product could be a major scam so the fact you’re here right now, researching whether or not that’s the case is a pretty smart move on your part.
To be fully transparent with you, I am personally not a member of Xyngular so I can assure you that I will not attempt to sell you it unless of course it’s worth investing in.
What I will aim to do is provide you with an unbiased 3rd party look at Xyngular that will hopefully help you to make the best decision you can in the end.
PRODUCT NAME: Xyngular
OWNER/S: Marc Walker (Founded 2009)
TYPE OF PRODUCT: Health and Wellness MLM
PRICE: $14.95 for Membership Fee + $49.95 for Distributor Fee
SUMMARY: Xyngular has a lot of problems with it such as the sub par products, a complicated compensation plan as well as the fact that realistically less than 1% of its members are making anything half decent through the MLM structure. This puts me in a position in all honesty to strongly recommend against joining Xyngular.
FINAL RATING: 1.2/5
WHAT IS XYNGULAR?
Xyngular is health and wellness MLM founded by Marc Walker in 2009. The reasons as to why he decided to create his own MLM company was obviously because he wanted to make money and because he understood how the business structure worked due to his success in the market beforehand.
The company claims that “The Xyngular’s way can truly change any individual’s health, wealth, and life.” so in turn their goal is to help it’s members and it’s customers to truly change themselves for the better, definetly an admirable goal but whether or not it is the case is yet to be found out.
The product line is probably the biggest reason for whether or not Xyngular will actually be a successful company so let’s just get in to that.
WHAT IS XYNGULARS PRODUCT LINE?
Xyngular has quite a few products all of which are within the health, wellness and weight loss industries. The products that are within the store include:
– Advanced Omega
There are a lot of other products within their online store click here to see them and get a more detailed look what their supposed benefits are.
As a manger it’s likely you’d be purchasing one of their recommended kits so I feel it’s worth breaking those down in a little more detail.
1. Xyngular Ignite Starter Kit $391
At $391 it’s definetly not cheap whatsoever and the fact that it’s also meant to be something that should be used within 8 days is also quite ridiculous. I doubt that’ll happen though, I’m sure they have got to have a larger quantity than just 8 days worth…who knows you’ll probably have to find that out for yourself.
So what do you get within this starter kit?
You get the following:
1. The Xyngular Golden Blend: This is an anti aging supplement which is also rich in antioxidants
2. Axion: A supplement for overall health and for the digestive system
3. Xyng: For energy and to put you in a better mood
4. Accelerate: For appetite control as well as thermogenesis
5. Lean: A snack that helps build lean muscles
6. Cheat+: Mitigates calories with appetite control
7. Flush: A cleanser used to help with your gut health
8. Shaker Bottle: To mix smoothies better
2. Xyngular Ultimate Transformation Kit $643.40
The second kit they recommend is the ultimate transformation kit and boy is this one a pretty penny. At $643.40 you’d be looking at a pretty hefty price tag, I’d definitely have to think twice before jumping onto this ship but, if you do decide to go for it you would get the following products inside:
1. Everything Within The Ignite Starter Pack
2. Lean Meal: A meal replacement supplement
3. Sprying: A supplement that gives you a quick energy boost
4. Trimstix: Aims to stop any cravings.
5. XR2: Aims to help with sleep and stress
The money that Xyngular are asking for either one of these kits is… Well you a lot… I definitely wouldn’t be able to justify pay such high prices for supplements and powders that may or may not be approved by any major health corporations.
If you want to, it’s always possible to just get single supplements instead of these kits but each supplement is likely to be a little bit more expensive that way so you got to weigh out the options and see which path best suits you.
HOW GOOD ARE XYNGULAR’S PRODUCTS?
This is a very important question to be answerd especially if you’re deciding to get involved with Xyngular. The quality of every Xyngular product you’ll be using and selling is definitely a major reason for how well you will do as a Xyngular manager.
As I don’t own and am not a member of Xyngular I won’t be able to provide you with first hand experience but through some research I’ve conducted, I found that the Xyngular products are some what of a mixed bag.
Within BBB, I found that individuals were having a few problems with the products where they had incurred side effects when using the supplements. Some individuals said that they felt ill after using the product, they felt bloated, nauseated, constipated and didn’t feel that any of their cravings subsided as was advertised when they used the products.
In general even in the instances where the weight loss actually worked, it wasn’t to the level that the customers were told to expect.
In this instance, I’m not an expert in weight loss at all but losing 20 pounds within 30 days or a money back guarantee are ridiculous claims and a sense of false hope for people on their weight loss journey.
I don’t think it’s a very moral thing to do on Xyngular’s part and on top of that the money back guarantee is a shambles of a system too.
Firstly the money back guarantee starts the second that you order and not when you receive the product, secondly it’s unclear as to how you should send back your returns and thirdly you must also pay the shipping costs to return the faulty products back.
If you have a genuine problem with the product, it should be at the sellers discretion to pay for the return bills as a show of good faith, in this case it seems Xyngular would rather completely tarnish their reputation than just pay for this bill.
I should think at the price that Xyngular are charging, they should have their things together especially something as crucial as a money back guarantee, even if they don’t like having to give money back.
To be fair to Xyngular they do say that you should contact your doctor to see if these products are appropriate for use however, this leads me to believe that maybe they don’t believe their products are 100% fit for use.
So in turn you should ask yourself if Xyngular themselves don’t believe that to be the case, should you really be putting your money on the table to promote such a product?
HOW DO YOU MAKE MONEY THROUGH XYNGULAR
As is the case with pretty much all MLM companies out there, Xyngular being no exception, there are 2 ways you can make money with them.
1. You make retail sales and garner a commission for wvery sale you make
2. You make commissions through recruitments and other incentives and bonuses within the structure
HOW TO GET STARTED
The first thing you will need to do to become a Xyngular distributors is sign up through their website. This entails the basic information such as your name, address age etc.
Once that is done you will be required to pay certain fees. The first fee you will be required to pay is a one time registration fee which will cost you $14.95 and after that you will be required to pay you distributor fee which will set you back another $49.95 (I believe this is a yearly fee I could be wrong).
After these fee have been paid you will be required to purchase one of their kits or products and put it on an auto ship plan in order to complete the registration.
The autoship requirement means that’s you’ll have to purchase products every month to remain a Xyngular member, are you even suprised… This means that the system will cost you a fair bit. Of course this makes sense as the kits are pretty expensive.
Okay so if you have decided to move forward with Xyngular a very important thing you’ll want to learn about is the company’s compensation structure so here goes.
Firstly Xyngular is a unilevel MLM which means that the structure works in a level like format, quite similar to another MLM I reviewd called Senegence International.
This means that Xyngular will operate a level based system, in this case Xyngular’s payment ability is capped at the 8th level. If you’re a little confused regarding the levels let me break it down for you briefly.
The first level recruits are recruits that have been personally recruited through you whilst second level recruits are your first levels direct recruits, your third level recruits are your second levels direct referrals and so on.
This is of course capped at the 8th level in terms of money potential which means that if your 8th level recruit were to have their own direct recruit, you would not be eligible for any money at all from them. Hopefully we’re clear on this so now how exactly are you going to get paid through Xyngular.
A distributor within Xyngular is divided into 4 ranks:
These ranks are also further divided into 3 sub division within each rank in the form of
This obviously means that the higher your rank is within Xyngular, the better your commissions and bonuses.
1. Retail Commissions
This is the first way through which you will be able to make money through Xyngular. So for every sale that you mange to make directly from the wholesale products you buy through Xyngular, you’ll make a profit dependant on the difference of the wholesale price from the retail price.
2. Unilevel Residual Income
This method is the basic compensation structure for most MLM and essentially what happens is that you need to purchase a certain amount of Product Volume (PV) per month to be eligible for commissions from each level.
The first level requires you to have atleast 30PV whilst the second level and onwards requires you have at least 120pv and 500qv (qualified volume) per month.
Yeah a little confusing, I’d suggest you look deeper into the compensation plan to get the exact numbers as well just tonfigure everything out
3. Rapid Rewards Commissions
This is a bonus that is paid out only within the first 4 levels and is also only available if you and any recruits within 4 of your levels purchase products within their first month.
To qualify for this bonus you will need to purcahse 360pv’s worth of merchandise.
4. Quick Start Bonus
This bonus only applies for distributors who manage to meet all the requirements within their first month.
You will be eligible for a $100 bonus if you purchase at least 120pv worth of products and mange to directly recruit 4 people who also purcahse 120pv worth of products.
For the work put into doing this I feel that the $100 incentive for doing this is really small and the fact that the time line is also only a month kinda gives me the idea that maybe Xyngular only cares about recruiting and not necessarily the products.
5. Corporate Sales Pool
There are 12 pools made up of 1% of Xyngular’s global volume. A distributor will be given the opportunity to earn a share from the corporate pool provided certain requirements are met.
6. Xyngular Leadership Bonuses
These are bonuses that you will be eligible for if you mange to make a certain amount of cash.
These bonuses are spread out between making $100k in revenue/profit all the way upto a bonus once you hit $1 million in slaes revenue/profit (I’m not sure which one… Probably revenue though you don’t need worry about these for a while).
As you can see there are quite a few ways through which you can make. Money through Xyngular and I don’t think you need me to tell you twice that it’s not a very organised or simple compensation structure to understand.
It’s certainly not too beginner friendly when all 6 of their methods to make money are right in front of you. If the compensation structure is already this messy I’m sure that it’s also unlikely that being a distributor would be smooth sailing either.
To get a better visual look at Xyngular compensation plan I suggest checking out their video.
THE NOT SO GOOD THINGS
Side Effects From Their Products
As I have already mentioned, people who have tried the supplements and other products have suffered some side effects using them.
They’ve become ill, bloated, constipated etc. I don’t think these kind of side effects are acceptable for any kind of health and wellness product so the fact Xyngular has had such problems will ultimately become your problem if customers suffer the same consequences.
Maybe it’s only a few people who are suffering from them but it’s definitely still worth noting and learning about.
Confusing Compensation Structure
The compensation plan is definitely one of the more difficult ones I’ve come across… To be honest I still don’t quite understand it.
Depending on your comprehension ability, this could be a major con for you especially because the plan is what your pay is going to be based on so the fact that it is pretty hard to understand is 100% not a good thing in my books.
Products Are Too Expensive!
Okay… Don’t you think the prices for Xyngular’s products are a little bit excessive. The prices range from $40-$600 with some of the kits setting you back $600+.
This price would be pretty excessive for even a premium companies products that habe been both tested and proven to provide genuinely good products but prices like this for Xyngular which are at best average products are pretty absurd!
On top of that, due to how average Xyngular’s products are it’ll also be pretty hard to sell them too.
Money Back Guarantee System Is A Shambles
When conducting my research on whether the products were any good, I came across many complaints saying that Xyngular 30 day money back guarantee was a mess.
They stated that the guarantee started the second they ordered the products and not when it was delivered and on top of the products not being up to par for the customers, they didn’t even cover the return charges.
Yes it’s true that Xyngular do have a 30 day money back guarantee but there’s also no denying it’s a bit of a mess…
Most People Are Failing
Yes most peopel are not making a full time income or even a decent part time income.
Within Xyngular’s income disclosure statement you find that only 4.65% of distributors are making anything half decent through Xyngular and this isn’t even taking into account all the other costs that they may need to be dealing with.
On average the top 4.65% are making $1003, but that’s if you include the ones making a lot more, in reality the lowest amount some one in the top 4.65% makes is $125.
$125 is honestly the more realistic amount you’ll be looking to make and yet you’ll still be making more than 95% of the distributors.
In actuality only the top 0.84% are actually at the very least making a least $1010 which realistically shows how unlikely it is that you will succed through Xyngular.
THE GOOD THINGS
Honestly there’s not too much good that I can say about Xyngular. Their products are I guess average at best and even though they do have a 30 day money back guarantee which is nice, it’s a mess of a system.
Millionaires Have Been Produced Through Xyngular
Within the income disclosure I found out that some individuals namely Xyngular’s Ambassador’s are actually making on average of $103,025 a month, this equates to slightly over $1.2 million dollars in a year meaning that Xyngular have in fact produced millionaires over the years.
It may not be of too much benefit to you as a newbie but atleast it shows that it’s possible to make money in the millions with Xyngular if you’re lucky.
IS THE PRODUCT A PYRAMID SCHEME/SCAM
No Xyngular is neither a pyramid scheme nor a scam, it is a legitimate MLM company that also does have its fair share of problems.
After doing all the research that I have on the product and obviously a little bit of personal bias against MLM companies in general, I’d recommend against getting into Xyngular.
It’s partly due to the sub par products you’d be promoting but mostly due to how there’s a 99% chance you won’t make anything half decent with the company unless of course you get super lucky.
So yeah my recommendation is a NO for this however, if you’re still interested in a method to make money thst isn’t an MLM and is actually free to start keep reading…
MY PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION
I personally will always recommend against using a MLM business model to make money, not because you can’t make money through it (you totally can) but, the system has always seemed shady to myself and is kinda synonymous with the likes of a pyramid scheme or scams (MOBE and Digital altitude).
Instead I prefer working with something created through ones own means and is ultimately dependent on yourself and your work ethic alone.
This method I’m talking about is affiliate marketing.
The reasons as to why I recommend it over MLM based structures are because
– there is no need to recruit constantly
– it is a legitimate method that has been working consistently and continues to grow as more businesses want individuals to promote products
– and because it is free to start up, no unnecessarily large start up funds needed.
The service I recommend is Wealthy Affiliate. It’s free to sign up to and will get you set up and ready to start your affiliate marketing journey within minutes, as it did for me when I begun my journey.
