Welcome to my full review of Xyngular.
Apparently, this company claims to sell “simple and effective” wellness products, while providing an amazing business opportunity that can “change your life”.
In this review, I’ll show you what you need to know before joining…
What’s Xyngular All About?
Xyngular is a network marketing company that sells health and wellness products.
The company was founded by Marc Walker in 2009 and is run by CEO Russ Fletcher. Together, these guys have decades of experience within the network marketing industry.
And it shows too. This is an Inc. 5000 company that generates over $100 million per year in revenue. And according to Direct Selling News (among others), they’re one of the best companies to work for in the industry.
So they must be doing something right.
According to the company website (xyngular.com), Xyngular is all about helping you “become more”. And apparently, you can “become more” by living the “Xyngular Way of Life”.
What exactly is this “way of life” about?
It’s a lifestyle that consists of you using the products and becoming a distributor.
The idea is that you become a customer, so you can “quickly and easily” achieve your health and wellness goals. This is referred to as the “Xyngular Way of Health”.
And if you like the products, you can sell these as a distributor by taking part in the business opportunity. This is referred to as the “Xyngular Way of Wealth”.
Together, these make up the “Xyngular Way of Life” and by adhering to this way of life you can supposedly create optimal health and wealth.
Sounds pretty cool, right?
Lose weight, get healthy and achieve financial freedom in the process!
But like ANY new venture, it’s important to know what you’re really getting yourself into. Before investing your time and money into something that could (in reality) be total BS.
In the following sections, I’ll walk you through the products and the business opportunity in detail. So you know exactly what it’s about and how it works before diving in.
The Xyngular Product Line (Way of Health)
The Xyngular product line is made up of 23 individual products that apparently help anyone “looking to be more energized, slim down, or simply maintain overall wellness”.
The company focusses primarily on weight loss supplements though.
And according to the website, these products are designed to “target the 15 points of weight loss”. A concept that the following YouTube video elaborates on…
In addition to selling meal replacement shakes, appetite control and metabolism boosting formulas to help you lose weight, Xyngular also sells products that help boost energy levels, promote gut health, improve your overall nutrition.
So they’re similar to network marketing companies like Vasayo, Isagenix and Herbalife, who sell pretty much anything related to “health and wellness”.
Anyways, rather than just selling these products individually, Xyngular is known for selling “wellness systems”. These are essentially product combinations that help different groups of people achieve different health outcomes.
Each system comes with the “8 Day Jumpstart” meal plan, which basically outlines how you should use the products in conjunction with their recommended diet.
And they all come with access to Xander, which is a “virtual weight loss coach”. It’s free for the first 30 days for every system except Trim Down Trio, and costs $5 per month thereafter. It’s basically an auto bot that helps you keep on track, and that you can text questions.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the four main systems so you know what to expect…
Ultimate System ($549 – $659)
Xyngular claims that the “Ultimate System” is the most effective weight loss system they sell, and can help you lose the most amount of weight in the shortest time possible.
This system contains 13 individual products including:
- Global blend
- Lean meal
- Advanced omega
It also comes with a shaker bottle, $100 credit towards your next purchase and some low-carb/ keto meal plans. And from what I can see, like the following systems, this is a 30 day supply.
Note: the pricing in the brackets indicates the wholesale versus retail pricing, which is something I’ll elaborate on shortly.
Ignite System ($349 – $419)
The Ignite System comes with 9 individual products that, according to the website, provide “fast, noticeable weight loss in only 30 days”. It’s basically a cheaper version of Ultimate, and with less products.
Here’s what’s included:
- Global blend
- Advanced omega
As with the Ultimate system, this system comes with a shaker bottle and some keto/ low-carb meal plans. But it doesn’t come with any credit towards your next purchase.
Core System ($199 – $239)
The Core System is again a weight loss system, but also contains products to help maintain better overall health.
Here’s the product list:
Trim Down Trio System ($179 – $216)
Trim Down Trio comes with three products:
The idea behind this system is to help you lose weight and maintain high energy levels.
How Do You Buy Xyngular Products?
There are two ways you can purchase Xungular products- in person from a distributor or online.
And if you buy online (which most people do), you need to go through a distributor website. Which means you need to know someone who’s running one of these OR “Google it” to see if you can find one.
However, at the time of writing this, I did find a work around. Which is handy if you just want to confirm the companies current pricing before buying.
You can view retail and wholesale pricing (and purchase directly from the company) via these links:
- Retail price list: myaccount.xyngular.com/ShoppingCart/index.cfm
- Wholesale (member) price list: myaccount.xyngular.com/Application/index.cfm
The first link shows you retail pricing and allows you to purchase as a retail customer. The second link is for those who want to pay a $14.95 fee and become a ‘member’, to purchase at wholesale pricing.
Honestly, I doubt that ANYONE is paying retail.
Because as I said the cost of becoming a Xyngular member is $14.95 per year. And that immediately gives you wholesale pricing. Which (to give you an example) would save you $110 on the ‘Ultimate System’ alone.
The good news is becoming a member is not only cheap but you don’t need to agree to an auto-ship. And you can cancel your membership at any time.
Xyngular Compensation Plan (Way of Wealth)
The Xyngular compensation plan outlines how you can earn as a distributor.
And since this is a multi level marketing (MLM) company, there’s really two main ways you can earn when you boil it down.
The first main way you can earn is by selling the products. And the second is by referring others into your organisation, who sell products.
In the following sections, I’ll show you how this works in more detail.
Becoming a Xyngular distributor is similar to becoming a member. You can either join through the company directly or through a distributor website.
Either way, the fee to become an affiliate is $49.95 and entitles you to the same product pricing as a member. Except now you can participate in the compensation plan.
In order to become an ‘active’ distributor, you will need to purchase or sell 30 PV worth of product each month.
Each product has a set amount of PV attached to it. For example, a bottle of Accelerate costs US$39.99 (wholesale) and has 30 PV attached to it.
So staying active is a matter or buying or selling 40 bucks worth of product each month.
PV also matters because, as I will now explain, it directly affects how much money you can earn within the compensation plan.
Ways You Can Earn Money
There are six ways you can earn within the Xyngular compensation plan:
- Retail Sales
- Rapid Rewards
- Quick Start Bonus
- Residual Commissions
- Corporate Sales Pool
- Leadership Bonuses
1- Retail Sales
This is the first and most basic income stream. The idea is to buy the products at wholesale pricing, and sell them to people at retail.
As a quick example, you could purchase the ‘Core System’ for $199 wholesale, and retail it for $239, making a cool $40 profit. Or you could make the same profit if someone you refer buys products through your unique referral link online.
But as I said earlier- nobody is paying retail online.
It makes logical sense that a person would bypass retail and pay the same wholesale price as you, simply by paying the $14.95 member fee.
So unless you plan on selling a whole bunch of this stuff to people offline, who don’t research product pricing online (good luck with that), you won’t be earning much at all from this income stream.
What happens when people pay wholesale through your link?
2- Rapid Rewards
This income stream pays out commissions on sales volume that is generated within your team, by any member or distributor you refer. But only during their first 30 days.
Here’s how it works…
Everyone who buys product within your team (as a member or distributor), goes into this ‘unilevel downline’. Which looks something like this:
Anyone you directly refer (member or distributor), makes up your ‘level 1 referrals’. And whoever your first level distributors refer (members or distributors) will make up your ‘level 2 referrals’. And so on, 4 levels deep.
Rapid Rewards pays you on the sales volume generated within the first 4 levels of this downline. So whatever your level 1-4 referrals purchase and/ or sell within their first month, will earn you a commission.
How much can you earn?
How much you can earn depends on the amount of CV (commission volume) generated within the first 4 levels of your downline.
The compensation plan states that CV is based on “US market values”. Which for example, means that a $39.99 bottle of Accelerate would equate to 40 CV.
Using this same example, here’s what you would earn from levels 1-4 of your downline, if each level generated 40 CV:
- 1st level- $8
- 2nd level- $4
- 3rd level- $2.66
- 4th level- $2
So in this example you earned a total of $16.66 across all 4 levels of your downline, because collectively the 4 levels generated 160 CV of sales volume (40 CV x 4).
There is a catch here though..
If you maintain less than 120 PV each month, you’ll only earn half of your level 1 commissions. Which (using the above example) would net you a whopping $4 commission!
So you need to maintain over 120 PV monthly to earn on the first 2 levels. And to earn on ALL levels (1-4), you must also accumulate 360 PV of product sales in at least one calendar month.
On one hand, these commissions are quite generous. On the other hand, unless you’re qualified, you’re going to be missing out on a lot of these commissions.
3- Quick Start Bonus
This is a simple $100 bonus that is paid if you generate 120 PV in your first month, and help 4 others do the same.
4- Residual Commissions
This income stream works off the same ‘unilevel’ downline system as the one I explained earlier.
Except this time, there are 8 levels of referrals (which include members and distributors). And like before, you earn based on the CV that is generated within each level.
Here’s a breakdown of what you can potentially earn (based on 120 CV generated within each level for the month) and what it takes to qualify:
- 1st level- Earn $12 (10%) / be an active distributor (30 PV monthly)
- 2nd level- Earn $8 (6.66%) / maintain 120 PV each month
- 3rd level- Earn $5 (4.16%) / maintain 120 PV plus 500 QV in at least 7 levels
- 4th level- Earn $5 (4.16%) / maintain 120 PV plus 2,000 QV in at least 7 levels
- 5th level- Earn $5 (4.16%) / maintain 120 PV plus 5,000 QV in at least 7 levels
- 6th level- Earn $5 (4.16%) / maintain 120 PV plus 10,000 QV in at least 7 levels
- 7th level- Earn $5 (4.16%) / maintain 120 PV plus 15,000 QV in at least 7 levels
- 8th level- Earn $5 (4.16%) / maintain 120 PV plus 20,000 QV in at least 7 levels
Worth mentioning is that if you’re a ‘Manager’ level or higher, you would earn $6 (5%) instead of $5 for levels 3 to 6.
Also, when it comes to QV (qualifying volume), this is the total sales volume of your entire organisation. No more than 60% of of your QV quota can come from any one ‘leg’. Which to put it simply, means that this volume needs to be spread out horizontally across your downline.
One last point worth mentioning here is that if you don’t have at least 30 PV within a calendar month, for 3 consecutive months, you lose your entire downline. Ouch!
5- Corporate Sales Pool
This is a bonus pool made up of 12% of the companies total global revenue, split up into 12 separate bonus pools, which are associated with the first 12 affiliate ranks.
As you can see, these ranks are made up of Manager, Director and Executive (each with Silver, Gold and Platinum levels). So which pool you qualify for will depend on your affiliate rank, which is determined by your QV in a given month.
If you’re an Ambassador ranked affiliate, you get a share in all 12 bonus pools.
How much you earn depends on the total company revenue for the month, your rank and how many other distributors at the same rank qualify as well.
6- Leadership Bonuses
The Leadership Bonus is paid out as follows to those who achieve these lofty ranks:
- Gold Executive rank – $100,000 over 12 months
- Platinum Executive rank – $250,000 over 12 months
- Ambassador rank – $500,000 over 18 months
- Gold Ambassador rank – $1000,000 over 24 months
In addition to the income streams and bonuses I’ve explained, Xyngular also offers a ‘Passport Program’ and ‘Recognition Program’.
The Passport Program rewards distributors who achieve certain milestones, with trips around the globe. The higher your rank, the more extravagant the vacation.
The Recognition Program is also based on rank, and awards distributors with certificates, charms and recognition (online and at Xyngular events). The higher you rank, the more ‘recognition’ you receive.
Verdict- Is Xyngular a Scam or Legit Opportunity?
Xyngular is not a scam in my opinion.
You will definitely hear some people claiming it’s a scam or pyramid scheme. And it’s true that pyramid schemes do exist, but so do legitimate network marketing companies.
Xyngular sells (what appear to be) quality products and they offer a legit business opportunity for those who want to earn money promoting these.
What are other people saying?
Well, I spent some time looking through other reviews online, and to be honest it’s a bit of a mixed bag. But overall it seems mostly positive, especially if their BBB profile is anything to go by.
So from everything I’ve seen, this company is legit.
Like any company or opportunity, there are drawbacks though.
And one drawback is that the products are quite expensive, which may limit your potential sales. It’s no wonder it’s so hard to find product pricing information online, because these are definitely on the high end.
I mean, who’s paying roughly $600 per month for health supplements!?
I guess you could argue the quality makes it worthwhile, and they do have cheaper options. So this is something you will need to weigh up as an individual.
The other ‘downside’ is that it’s not going to be easy to “change your life” as a distributor.
Even though the company is legit, most people who attempt to make money with network marketing (in general) fail. A reality that is clearly evident within the income disclosure…
As you can see, less than 3% of Xyngular distributors make what many would consider a full time income.
I’m not showing you this to throw shade on the company or opportunity. Not at all. Rather, I am showing you this to help set your expectations going forward.
If you want to get to the point of earning real money, you will need to put in the time and effort. As with any worthwhile endeavour.
And in my opinion, you’ll need to go beyond your ‘warm market’ (AKA friends and family). Because best case, this a slow and painful way to build your business. And worst case, it’ll get you nowhere.
Whatever you decide, I hope you found this review helpful.
The truth is, most people fail to make money online.
Because despite the wealth of opportunity that currently exists, there's too many fake "gurus" selling bunk programs that over promise and under deliver. It's a wild west.
The good news is, it IS possible for the average person to create a successful business online. I know because I've done it myself. Here's how I went from zero to $8K plus per month online.
