What is FM World About?

As you’ve seen in the video right above, FM World (also known as FM Cosmetics UK and FM Group) claims to be “The Best MLM Company in the World”.

Truthfully, FM World is a pretty regular MLM company that operates in a vast array of industries, including

  • Fragrance
  • Cosmetics
  • Bodycare
  • etc

The company was launched under the name “FM Group” in 2004 by Artur Trawiński as a way to distribute his father’s perfumes using network marketing.

3 years later, in 2007, FM Group started expanding internationally and got rebranded to “FM World”.

Since then, the company has grown to include offices in 50+ countries.

According to Forbes, in 2010 FM World made $61 million in revenue with a net profit of $9.5 million.

In 2013, Artur and his father possessed the 74th place on the List of the 100 Richest Poles with a fortune of PLN 330 million ($85 million).

According to businessforhome.org, during the last couple of years, FM World has grown to generate $100+ million in yearly revenue.

FM World’s mission is to create products that everybody can share with others while building a lifestyle that provides financial freedom.

Its vision is to be the global leader of Multi-Level Marketing, the #1 company for fragrance sales worldwide, as well as to collaborate with people driven by success.

FM world operates based on the 5 following values:

  • Trust
  • Excitement
  • Independence
  • Caring
  • Boldness

You can find a lot more about FM World, its founder, mission, vision, policies, compensation plan, etc on the company’s official website.

You can find more information about FM World’s products and their respective prices on the company’s shop or online catalog.



FM World Compensation Plan

The majority of MLM companies have so overly complicated compensation plans that it feels like you need to have a rocket scientist doctorate to understand just their first paragraph.

Truthfully, FM World’s compensation plan is no different whatsoever.

Nonetheless, I’ll try my best to get you up to speed.

So, FM World compensates its Business Partners in 6 different ways.

  1. Retail Commissions
  2. Marketing Plan 1 – The Magnolia Club
  3. Effectiveness Bonuses
  4. Marketing Plan 2 – The Orchid Club
  5. Marketing Plan 3 – The Star Club
  6. Incentives


1 • Retail Commissions

FM World’s Business Partners are able to purchase all the company’s products at wholesale prices and then resell them in retail.

The difference between retail and wholesale pricing goes into the Business Partner’s pocket and is usually up to 30%.


2 • Marketing Plan 1

The number of accumulated Group Points you generate every month qualifies you to a certain Effectiveness Level ranging from 0% to 21% (see table below).

FM World-FM Cosmetics Effectiveness Levels and Qualifications

Marketing Plan 1 pays you commissions based on the Personal and Group Points you have generated and the difference between your Effectiveness Level and the Effectiveness Level of the people you have personally recruited (1st Level).

This is the exact formula:

Commissions = Personal Points + Group Points * (Your Effectiveness Level – Downline Business Partner’s Effectiveness Level) * Exchange Rate

Let’s assume that you have:

  • 50 Personal Points
  • 1500 Group Points
  • 9% Effectiveness Level
  • A downline Business Partner with 6% Effectiveness Level
  • 0.175 Exchange Rate

Your commissions will be calculated as:

50 + 1500 * (9% – 6%) * 0.175 = 1550 * 3% * 0.175 = £8.13

Personal Points = Points generated when you personally purchase FM World’s products

Group Points = Points generated through the personal purchases of Business Partners in your downline

Exchange Rate = A fixed-rate that varies per country


3 • Effectiveness Bonuses

When you reach the 9% Effectiveness Level for the first time, you become entitled to operate an additional business spot which you can strategically place anywhere within your downline, such as

  • on your 1st Level in order to build a brand new leg
  • under an already existing leg in order to strengthen it

Whatever the case, this additional business spot is an opportunity to generate additional commissions.

Please note that you’re entitled to additional business spots once you reach the 15% and 21% Effectiveness Levels respectively.


4 • Marketing Plan 2

Business Partners who have reached the Effectiveness Level of “Orchid” qualify to start participating in Marketing Plan 2.

Marketing Plan 2 calculates team commissions in a very different way than Marketing Plan 1.

The formula is so complicated and dependent on such a huge range of factors, that it’s 100% impossible for me to put it into words here.

Nonetheless, everything is fully laid out in FM World’s official compensation plan which I’m going to share with you later on.

Business Partners who have reached the Orchid Level share 8.5% of the FM World’s worldwide Point turnover.

FM World-FM Cosmetics Orchid Worldwide Points Turnover Share Qualifications

The qualifications to reach the Orchid Level are as follows:

Pearl Orchid:

  • have at least 1 leg with a 21% Effectiveness Level Business Partner
  • have at least 20.000 Points (Group &Personal combined)

Amaranth Orchid:

  • have at least 3 legs with at least one 21% Effectiveness Level Business Partner each

Golden Orchid:

  • have at least 3 legs with at least one Orchid Level Business Partner each

Diamond Orchid:

  • have at least 5 legs with at least one Orchid Level Business Partner each


5 • Marketing Plan 3

Those who have reached the “Star” Effectiveness Level qualify to participate in Marketing Plan 3.

The formula for calculating commissions in Marketing Plan 3 is even more complicated than Marketing Plan 2 as it literally takes into account more than 15 different factors.

Thus, I’m not going to even attempt to analyze it either.

What I can tell you here is that through Marketing Plan 3, FM World dedicates 3.5% of its worldwide Point turnover to be shared among all its Star-ranked Business Partners.

FM World-FM Cosmetics Star Worldwide Points Turnover Share Qualifications

The qualifications to reach the Star Level are as follows:

Jasper Star:

  • Have 7 Legs with 1 Orchid Level Business Partner in each Leg
  • Have 1 Amaranth Orchid Business Partner in 3 of the 7 Legs
  • Have 1 Pearl Orchid Business Partner in 4 of the 7 Legs
  • 2 of the 7 Legs must qualify as New Legs
  • Reach 21% Effectiveness with 1 of your additional business spots

Amethyst Star:

  • Have 9 Legs with 1 Orchid Level Business Partner in each Leg
  • Have 1 Golden Orchid Business Partner in 2 of the 9 Legs
  • Have 1 Amaranth Orchid Business Partner in 5 of the 9 Legs
  • Have 1 Pearl Orchid Business Partner in 2 of the 9 Legs
  • 3 of the 9 Legs must qualify as New Legs
  • Reach Pearl Orchid with 1 of your additional business spots

Malachite Star:

  • Have 11 Legs with 1 Orchid  Level Business Partner in each Leg
  • Have 1 Golden Orchid Business Partner in 7 of the 11 Legs
  • Have 1 Amaranth Orchid Business Partner in 2 of the 11 Legs
  • Have 1 Pearl Orchid Business Partner in 2 of the 11 Legs
  • 4 of the 11 Legs must qualify as New Legs
  • Reach Amaranth Orchid with 1 of your additional business spots

Nephrite Star:

  • Have 13 Legs with 1 Orchid Level Business Partner in each Leg
  • Have 1 Diamond Orchid Business Partner in 2 of the 13 Legs
  • Have 1 Golden Orchid Business Partner in 5 of the 13 Legs
  • Have 1 Amaranth Orchid Business Partner in 4 of the 13 Legs
  • Have 1 Pearl Orchid Business Partner in 2 of the 13 Legs
  • 5 of the 13 Legs must qualify as New Legs
  • Reach Golden Orchid with 1 of your additional business spots

Onyx Star:

  • Have 15 Legs with 1 Orchid Level Business Partner in each Leg
  • Have 1 Diamond Orchid Business Partner in 3 of the 15 Legs
  • Have 1 Golden Orchid Business Partner in 5 of the 15 Legs
  • Have 1 Amaranth Orchid Business Partner in 7 of the 15 Legs
  • 6 of the 15 Legs must qualify as New Legs
  • Reach Diamond Orchid with 1 of your additional business spots

Commissions earned through Marketing Plans 1, 2, and 3 add up.

For instance, an Amethyst Star can qualify for commissions through Marketing Plan 1, Marketing Plan 2, and Marketing Plan 3 at the same time.


6 • Incentives

In addition to the Retail Commission and Marketing Plans, FM World offers its Business Partners several inventives, such as:

  • Fast & Smart Start Bonuses
  • Product Vouchers
  • Car Payments
  • Extra Commissions
  • Paid Vacations
  • etc

All the currently available incentives are listed within your FM World Business Partner’s personal dashboard.

You can study FM World’s full compensation plan right here.

The videos below kinda sum up FM World’s compensation plan so you might want to give them a watch if you still have any gaps.

Please note that FM World’s compensation plan might undergo changes from time to time so by the time you read this review, some of the info, the commission rates, the rank qualifications, etc that are displayed in the video and PDF file I shared with you right above might not be that accurate.

If you have any questions about FM World’s compensation plan, you can contact their support team through the contact information you’ll find on the company’s website.

Is FM World a Pyramid Scheme?

Most of the time it’s very hard to distinguish between a legit MLM company and a pyramid scheme.

The video below will help you understand how to spot and avoid pyramid schemes in general.

The main difference between a legit MLM and a pyramid scheme is that your income potential with a legit MLM is mostly based on selling the company’s actual products or services to retail customers while your income potential with a pyramid scheme is mostly or solely based on recruiting other people into the scheme.

Not all MLMs are legitimate. If the money you make through an MLM is based on your sales to the public, it may be a legitimate one. If the money you make is based on the number of people you recruit and your sales to them, it’s not legit. It’s a pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes are illegal, and the vast majority of their participants lose money. – Federal Trade Commission

Since FM World pays its Business Partners commissions for selling its products to retail customers, technically, the company cannot be considered a pyramid scheme.

The problem here is that building a full-time income with FM World without actually having a downline would be nearly impossible.

If your goal here is to earn more than a couple of hundreds of dollars per month, your main focus as an FM World Business Partner will just have to be to recruit other Business Partners.

In addition, as we saw right above, in order for an FM World Business Partner to remain qualified for commissions, they’ll have to personally purchase 50-points worth of products during any given month.

This is called “pay-to-play” and according to the FTC, it’s one of the 5 Red Flags of Product-Based Pyramid Schemes, or Recruiting MLM’s.

Incentivized (or “pay to play”) purchases is the practice of tying purchases of products from an MLM company as a requirement to enter the “business opportunity” or advance in the hierarchy of “distributors” who are in effect merely participants making pyramid scheme investments disguised (or laundered) as purchases.

Now, I’m not claiming that FM World is a pyramid scheme but it definitely displays a number of characteristics one, so if I were you, I’d proceed with extreme caution.



FM World Pros


1 • Free to Join

Most MLM companies have admission fees that rise up to hundreds or in some cases even thousands of dollars.

That’s not the case here…

FM World is actually among the very few MLM companies that allow you to take part in their business opportunity without paying a single dime.

Another pretty legit MLM company that’s free to join is CBD BioCare.


2 • Established Company

FM World has been in business for more than 15 years now.

This is pretty exceptional considering that most MLM companies fail before they even hit the 5-year mark.

In addition, FM World claims to have more than 2 million international Business Partners already working with them.

Not bad at all…



FM World Cons


1 • MLM Business Model

Personally, I’m not that fond of the MLM business model for the following reasons:

  • The chances of making a profit as an MLM rep are minimal
  • MLM companies are extremely volatile and unstable
  • I hate selling and recruiting

Being involved in an MLM is just not worth the trouble in my mind.

Especially when there exist other much more promising ways of building a full-time income without becoming a sleazy salesperson and jeopardizing the relationships with the people around you for the sake of pocketing a commission.


2 • Complicated Compensation Plan

FM World’s compensation plan is by far the most complicated MLM compensation plan I’ve come across until now.

Seriously, it’s 48 pages of complete non-sense about points, flowers, and completely undecipherable formulas of calculating commissions.

I’ve studied dozens of MLM compensation plans but I’ve never seen anything like this.


3 • Focus on Recruiting

FM World’s compensation plan is recruit-oriented and barely covers earning commissions through retail sales.

In fact, out of an entire 48-page comp plan, only two small sentences talk about selling products to retail customers:

When you are a Business Partner you receive discounts for the purchase of FM GROUP products.

Besides, you can also generate direct profit from selling the Products (the difference between the prices for which you buy and sell FM GROUP products stays in your pocket).

Everything else within FM World’s compensation plan is about recruiting, purchasing the company’s products yourself to “try them out” and stay qualified for commissions, and earning points when Business Partners on your downline place their monthly orders in order to remain active.

As it seems, if you’re after building a sizeable monthly income with FM World, you’ll have to focus the majority of your efforts towards recruiting other Business Partners.


4 • No Income Disclosure Statement

The fact that FM World has been operating for more than 15 years now and hasn’t published a single Income Disclosure Statement is a big turn off for me.

There are usually two reasons that MLMs don’t publish an IDS.

  1. They don’t have the required statistical data to put together an accurate IDS because they are newly launched
  2. Their reps earn such a low income that if they’d publish an IDS, potential reps would get discouraged from joining the company

Now, FM World has been operating for more than 15 years so we can safely rule out reason #1.

Truth is that all Income Disclosure Statements I’ve come across until now reveal the exact same thing – that the vast majority of MLM reps never actually make any profit and those who do make a profit, would have to throw an additional couple of bucks on top of it to buy a pizza.

Chances are that if FM World published an IDS today it would probably tell the exact same story…



FM World MLM Review Summary

Is FM World Suggested?

The only thing that sets FM World apart from the majority of other MLM companies out there is that you can join its business opportunity for free.

Other than that, the company

  • has a very complicated and recruit-oriented comp plan
  • doesn’t have an IDS in place
  • is kinda hype-y & calls itself “The Best MLM Company in the World”
  • and displays pay-to-play instances which indicate that it could be a pyramid scheme

Now, if your heart is set to becoming a Business Partner for FM World, you could create your free account and give it a try.

However, I strongly advise you to consult with a trustworthy Business Partner before you invest any money in the company.

Personally, I’m not that fond of the MLM business model…

  • The chances of making a profit as an MLM rep are minimal
  • MLM companies are extremely volatile and unstable
  • I hate selling and recruiting

    Thank you for this informative article about if FM World/FM Cosmetics.

    My ex-husband was talking about how this would be a great opportunity for me so I thought I would do some research and find out more. 

    I am so happy to have stumbled on your post, I have learned a ton about this program, and although I do not think its a scheme per se it is too complicated for me to pursue. 

    Although I do like many of the items they offer, fragrances, skincare products, makeup and hair care I just can’t get behind this company. 

    Do you know of any programs to make money from home that you do recommend? I would love to hear about a straight-forward, easy-to follow, easy-to-understand, reputable way to make money on-line. 

    Thanks so much for your insight and for sharing this information.

    1. Xaric

      Your ex-husband suggested that you join this MLM? 

      I guess you haven’t parted in very good terms right?

      Well, if you “have” to go for an MLM, I’d suggest checking out Farmasi.

      Or else, you could take my advice and consider starting your own online business which is much simpler and cost-effective while offering a much higher income potential and better chances of actually succeeding.

      I personally started my online business at Wealthy Affiliate. They provide literally everything you might possibly need to build and successfully scale your online business around any subject that you want including cosmetics, makeup, skincare, etc.

      I have been a Wealthy Affiliate member for more than 3 years now and I couldn’t be more satisfied with what they have provided me.

      Or else, check out Project 24. They are of almost equal quality to Wealthy Affiliate but they talk much more in-depth about cultivating organic traffic through search engines.

      I have been a Project 24 member for more than 1 year now and I have seen a lot of people succeeding with it.

      Plus, some of the strategies they teach are pretty unique and helped me grow my website’s visitors by 3000% in just a few months.

      Let me know if you have any more questions about any of those platforms. I’ll be happy to help you out.

    An MLM company boasting as the world’s greatest MLM certainly is a frightening thing, and I appreciate you bringing to light FM World here. 

    I think it’s a pretty big risk to join a program that you have to pay into to buy products monthly. Sadly I know a few people who are clouded by the delusions of the MLM and they have been spending for years without turning a profit. 

    I will definitely share your post with them. 99% of MLM reps losing money is a pretty staggering number, though unfortunately easy to believe. 

    Looking through your review I totally agree that FM World has a complicated compensation plan and that we don’t know how much 50 points will cost is one of the bigger red flags I’ve seen. 

    Thanks for a great review of FM World.

    1. Xaric

      The fact that FM World presents itself as “The best MLM company in the world” got me too! It felt like all those shady and scammy online platforms I’ve reviewed like Tap2Earn.co and InfluencerCash.co that claim that they are “The #1 influencer network”

      The mandatory monthly purchase is a huge scam red flag. This is called “pay to play” and according to FTC 

      “If participants must recruit to be successful, or if the pay plan’s primary rewards are for building a downline, it should be considered a recruiting MLM, and hence an illegal pyramid scheme.”

      Seriously, everything about FM World feels way off.

      Unfortunately, people keep buying into that shit. My best friend attended a Herbalife convention a few weeks ago and he just joined. I couldn’t and frankly didn’t want to talk him out of it because he won’t learn if he doesn’t make the mistake himself.

      I am 100% sure how this will go for him though…

      Xaric

    2. Lauma

      The article contains a lot of false information.
      you do not have to purchase a starter kit. but it helps a lot at work.
      50 points is about 15 EUR.
      But when we sell a product to a customer, we earn 30% of the product price. These are very good profit opportunities from home.

      1. Xaric

        Please enlighten us about exactly which piece of information within my FM World Review is false…

        FM World doesn’t reveal how much money the 50 points are equivalent to (when they really should) and I specifically state

        Unfortunately, we don’t know beforehand how much money those 50 points are equivalent to.

        It might be $50 or $200.

        No clue…

        I also mention that Retail Commissions pay up to 30%.

        Quoting me:

        The difference between retail and wholesale pricing goes into the Business Partner’s pocket and is usually up to 30%.

        The fact that purchasing a Starter Kit isn’t mandatory during your sign up as an FM World Business Partner, doesn’t mean that you won’t have to purchase one.

        And okay, let’s assume that you don’t purchase a Starter Kit…

        Won’t you have to purchase FM World’s products for sampling and demonstration purposes which is frankly even worse in terms of expenses?

        How else are you going to get people to purchase them?

        Within its compensation plan, FM World encourages its Business Partners to “Be their First Customer” and purchase the company’s products themselves in order to “gain knowledge” and provide their potential customers “reliable information“.

        And frankly, this is how sales work… If you don’t know the product yourself, you will have great trouble selling it…

        Let’s not kid ourselves, people aren’t going to take your word and blindly hand you out their money for products they have never even touched.

        So, please let me know which of the information within my review is false.

        I am holding my breath for your reply.

        Xaric

        1. Brett

          Hi There,

          Apologies but have to agree with the above @Lauma. While you may have not stated exactly what the cost of 50 points is you have still lead people to believe it could be costly by starting at $50.

          You have also stated that there is a joining fee which there is not. It is a rep’s personal choice whether they purchase a starter pack or any pack at all for that matter. You have stated people will not blindly choose to sell a product they have not had theme selves. Again while this may be your opinion it does not mean that there is a joining fee. It’s a choice the person has to make for themselves.

          The fact is FM is free to join and there is no ongoing fee to stay active. The 50 point minimum is to keep you active so you are eligible to gain your team commission. Again this is a personal choice and not a min requirement.

          Your sarcastic responses are not very professional and I would suggest you get your facts in order when posting as I imagine someone like yourself doesn’t like to be wrong.

          Before you ask… No, I do not work for FM. I do however know someone who does and they love what they do and enjoy the flexibility.

          Yes, it is possible to make a profit!

          I look forward to your next round of explanations and excuses.

          1. Xaric

            Hi Brett!

            I forgive you…

            And thanks for the psychoanalysis!

            Obviously, nobody likes being wrong… And this includes you. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have tried to prove me wrong.

            This is a personal blog, not a company’s website. My purpose here is to express my opinion on any given matter so trying to insult me by saying that I’m unprofessional is a miss on your part…

            That being said, I was wrong about the joining fee. After closer investigation, I found out that FM World is indeed free to join and updated my review accordingly.

            Look at that, I admitted being wrong!

            Regarding the Starter Packs, you really don’t “have” to purchase one.

            However, I should note that a Starter Pack contains a bunch of materials that are mandatory for running your FM World business (sales aids, samples, promotional materials, etc).

            Anyone who is serious about running a business with FM World NEEDS to have those materials.

            According to FM World itself:

            A Starter Kit is the basic tool of any Business Partner. Along with the samples of FM by Federico Mahora fragrances, you receive FM WORLD catalogs and other necessary materials.

            Joining FM World’s MLM opportunity for free is one thing but actually running your FM World business is going to require a financial investment (at least $100 per month, to begin with).

            Please go ahead and ask “that someone you know who works for FM World and love what they do” how much money per month they invest to actually run their business and come back to let us know.

            Now, about the 50 points…

            Yes, purchasing 50 points worth of products per month to keep yourself qualified for team commissions is a personal choice.

            However, the whole point of joining an MLM is to earn commission on multiple levels, isn’t that right?

            Now answer me this:

            If you choose to disqualify for pocketing team commissions then why even bother joining an MLM in the first place?

            That makes no sense whatsoever.

            Furthermore, the fact that you assume that 50 points equal to $50 is a figment of your own imagination.

            I never, not once in my review mentioned that 50 points equal to $50.

            And to be frank, FM World should disclose that information within its compensation plan because I’m sure that many people might assume the exact same thing.

            Again, after closer investigation, 50 points equal to about £10 to £20.

            Lastly, I never claimed that it’s impossible for someone to make a profit as FM World’s Business Partner… I’m sure that there are tons of people profiting from FM World’s business opportunity.

            If there weren’t, chances are that FM World wouldn’t have managed to stay up and running for more than 15 years.

            I really hope that my reply was exactly what you were looking forward to!

            Best wishes,

    Thank you so much for reviewing this! 

    Truth is I hate MLMs too.

    I was suckered into joining a few in my lifetime. It won’t be happening again. 

    It would be great if more people would read reviews like yours before joining something so shady. If the products are nice, why not just maintain an online store with a snazzy website? I just have zero respect for these things. 

    If I want to throw away my money I’ll stand outside on a windy day and watch it fly!

      At least this way you won’t end up wasting any of your time haha!

      Thanks a lot for sharing.

    I had never heard of FM World until a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to find out what it is about before I join because I have experienced my fair share of MLM, pyramid schemes, scams, etc.

    I had to chuckle at your comment “& a dozen other names”. 

    There are companies that go by multiple names to try and trick people into thinking they aren’t the same people who scammed on them the previous time!

    I read FM World’s compensation plan and I didn’t understand a word just like you said.

    I don’t think I’ll go for it.

      Well, I don’t think that FM World goes by so many different names on purpose. They just seem to be very inconsistent and poorly structured.

      While researching I came across 6 different websites. It seems that they can’t maintain all of them so some of them contained outdated information.

      Its compensation plan is indescribable… I get disappointed with the company just by thinking about it.

      I wouldn’t join either…
