As an IBO, you have the right to purchase products through Amway at IBO cost, the right to sell products offered by Amway, and the right to sponsor others to become IBOs.
Sponsoring new IBOs is important to the growth of your business, and all IBOs must remember to honor and help preserve the Line of Sponsorship. The Rules of Conduct, which as you all know are part of your contract with Amway, state that “Under no circumstances shall an IBO, directly or indirectly, solicit, assist, attempt to induce, or encourage another IBO to request a change position in the Line of Sponsorship” (Rule 4.17 Enticement to Change Position in the Line of Sponsorship).
When you encounter IBOs at different places in the Line of Sponsorship, it is best to wish them well in their business endeavors to build their businesses, without trying to convince them how much better your group would be for them. In some cases, another IBO may approach you about changing sponsors or positions in the Line of Sponsorship to join your group. In these situations, it is best to take the information upline to be sure it is handled appropriately.
Remember that protecting the Line of Sponsorship is essential for all IBOs – it protects others and it protects you. And it allows you to focus on building and growing your balanced business in a sustainable way.
