If you buy doTERRA from Amazon, you are paying too much, supporting rule-breaking sellers and have a high probability of getting fake product.
Effective May 1st, 2017 all approved doTERRA Amazon sellers had to stop.
That means that anyone still selling doTERRA on Amazon is breaking doTERRA’s rules and you are supporting them.
How do you think those unauthorized sellers make money?
They get them for cheaper than they are selling them for or it wouldn’t be worth it to them.
Would you trust someone who isn’t following the rules? Ever think about what else they would do to break the rules? – like put cheaper brands in the bottles or heavily dilute the oils and put a sealed cap back on (which is very easy to do).
There is no commitment with doTERRA. With other home-based businesses, say Pampered Chef – you only sign up if you want to sell the product.
But doTERRA is different. You sign up so you can get the product for a better price than any other way. You don’t have to sell anything. In fact, most doTERRA members don’t sell.
Just think of doTERRA like Costco, BJ’s, Sam’s Club, etc. You sign up so you can be on the “inside” and get the best prices and qualify for promotions. Even without optional monthly orders, you could get several hundreds of dollars in free product every year. Just like a club, you can have your membership and never buy anything again that year. doTERRA then takes it one step farther and says that if you want even more benefits, you can commit to a monthly order and get up to 30% back in free product.
So, do you see my point? Signing up SAVES you money over buying from Amazon, especially over the long term. Plus, you get support and training from me and doTERRA. I hope you will think about joining doTERRA before you buy from Amazon again.
Another thing to consider is that in order to sell at those kind of low prices, the only way they can do that is to: #1 adulterate the oils in some way, or #2 break doTERRA rules and use their LRP points to purchase oils for re-sale. LRP points are not intended to be used to resell with and anyone that is not an authorized seller and is selling on Amazon is breaking the rules. Do you really want to give someone like that your business? Anyone who is willing to ignore the pricing rule cannot be expected to be honorable in any other way. They could be selling you anything.
Another reason not to buy on Amazon is that there is no product support, no upline to ask questions to, and no generous return policy.
Doesn’t that “cheap” bottle of essential oils on Amazon sound like not as good of a deal now?
