Hello and welcome to my Isagenix Pay Structure and Compensation Plan Breakdown.
If you want to join this business, but you are unsure of where to start, then you are in the right place.
In my personal opinion, I would always do some digging first on any opportunity I am thinking of joining.
Anytime you take the time and research, the work that you do now will not be lost, there is always value toward the effort of your research with future opportunities.
Even when your gut feeling is telling you to take a leap of faith and join, we still want to do our diligence on the opportunity to know there are no red flags.
With that said, I wanted to let you know that one of the utmost important topics about a company is its compensation plan, or the commission pay structure because it is of the utmost importance to know how to structure your team when you build to earn the most out of the pay that you can earn from the opportunity.
And with a company not having a simple to build compensation plan, or not having a commission structure that’s simple to comprehend, you’ll have no clue on how to build a good foundation, you will absolutely need to acknowledge this for you and your team to maintain a solid long-term recurring commission flow.
The vision that I have for sharing this Isagenix compensation article is so that you can get a good idea of what the opportunity is, how it works, and what it’s all about, what products they offer, a good company overview, and of course to give you a great breakdown of the compensation plan structure and the commissions that you can make.
And in my last part of this article, I’ll share with you from my years of experience, my secret-sauce formula that the new person just getting started can use to both earn money from home quickly and to find qualified people to reach out to for your primary business.
And in closing, I will finally discuss my final views about how I feel about Isagenix as a whole.
Now, let’s get started?
Isagenix Company Overview

So now that we have the company and the products of Isagenix covered let’s get into the main topic of this article, which is the Isagenix pay structure and compensation plan breakdown.
Isagenix Pay Structure and Pay Plan Video Overview
Let’s get started with a video that will give you a compensation plan breakdown of how it all works.
Isagenix is a Network Marketing company with a compensation designed in the binary pay structure.
So with the binary pay structure, you have a right team and a left team.
There are a few ways that MLM companies with binaries pay out.
Isagenix pays out in “cycles”.
When there’s a certain amount of volume in your right leg and a certain amount of volume in your left leg specified by how the company designed it pays you a commission.
When you qualify for a cycle the designated payout that Isagenix has in place per cycle is $54.
I will explain more in detail below, I just wanted to give you a quick breakdown in this section of how it works.
Isagenix Compensation Plan Breakdown
Basically, Isagenix pay structure has 2 legs that you will need to build and concentrate on.
A left leg and a right leg.
Whichever leg at any particular time that has more volume production is considered your power leg or main leg.
When you first start you will probably want to rotate your incoming enrollees to both legs to keep them as even as possible to maximize the commissions that you earn with how the compensation plan is structured.
After some of your team starts growing, and you notice 1 of your legs growing much faster than your other leg you will want to just concentrate on the lesser volume leg at that point to try to “catch up”.
That is pretty much a simple breakdown on how to get started in making money with Isagenix, let’s get into the more technical aspects to the commission plan and break it down.
6 Ways To Earn
With the Isagenix compensation plan you will have 6 different ways to earn.
The first way that you can earn in the Isagenix compensation plan is through retail profits.
Retail profits give you the ability to purchase products at a discount and to resell the products at the retail rate.
The way to do this is to order products directly from Isagenix at discounted prices and then resell the products in person to your customers.
This can be anyone.
All personal purchases made that are resold are considered personal volume.
RETAIL DIRECT PROFITS
These profits are made when a customer purchases from your website as a customer.
These sales are still considered personal volume.
If the sales amount is over 100 PV, then the overage volume will go toward your additional team volume.
You will earn the difference between the sale made and what your price would be in essence, these commissions are paid out weekly.
PRODUCT INTRODUCTION BONUSES
Essentially Fast Start Bonuses, if you have been keeping up with some of my prior compensation plan overviews of other companies.
These commissions are earned when you introduce someone to the Isagenix business and decide to upgrade to a member like yourself.
When a persona upgrades they will need to purchase the yearly subscription and also one of their packs, or what Isagenix like to call it which is one of their “Systems”.
Isagenix has several types of product packs to choose from that all have different prices.
So depending on the pack is what you will earn in an up front commission that will be paid out weekly.
Isagenix also has promotions from time to time where they double the commissions for packs sold in a determined time frame set by the company of course.
TEAM BONUSES – KNOWN AS CYCLES
When you reach the rank of Consultant in the compensation plan is where this bonus comes into play.
These team bonuses are considered “cycles”.
When you have a certain amount of volume on one leg of your pay plan, and a certain amount of volume of your other leg you will then earn a cycle commission.
The volumes on either leg equal to 600 BV on one leg (either leg), and 300 BV on the other leg.
BV is “binary volume”.
The total amount that you accumulate in volume between the 2 legs is what Isagenix calls “group volume” or GV.
Keep that in mind because it’s important in understanding how the commission structure works with the verbiage that Isagenix has.
So in this case the GV or group volume would be 900 in total.
So I am just gonna throw out some random low numbers so you can understand this a little better.
So, let’s say you have 1600 BV on one leg and 950 BV on the other leg, how many cycles will you have made?
Correct, the right answer would be 2 cycles because even though you have enough to cycle 3 times with the volume on the lesser leg which was 950 BV, you still have to have 3X the amount that you would need for the bigger leg which only was 1600 BV.
Now, if the bigger leg had 1800 BV, and the same volume on the lesser volume leg, you would have cycled 3X in that circumstance.
I hope that makes better sense.
With that said, an associate can earn a maximum of 250 cycles per week.
EXECUTIVE MATCHING TEAM BONUSES
Matching bonuses are another aspect to how the Isagenix pay structure is designed.
This bonus is only offered to qualified Executive ranked members.
This bonus consists of receiving a 10% match on your “Personally Enrolled and Consultant rank or higher” front-line members only.
This 10% matching commissions are earned when they qualify for cycle commissions.
You can only earn up to 25 matching cycles per week for any 1 personally enrolled consultant or higher, and a maximum of 250 matching cycle commissions combined per week.
SPECIAL INCENTIVES AND PROMOTIONS
This is basically an incentive program.
This is when Isagenix wants to boost sales, so they will have contests or promotions consisting of extra commission percentages usually through new sign up memberships that you would bring in.
Sometimes, you can earn products as well as commissions, you will just need to stay active with the Isagenix.com backoffice and be on the lookout when they release these updates.
Ranks, Qualifiers & Compensation Per Rank
In this section of the compensation plan is where you want to pay close attention to.
This is the part where the residual earnings come in.
This is where you find out how to rank up so that you can earn more money in the binary pay structure where you have the 2 legs to work with.
The higher in rank you qualify for means that the more commissions that you can earn.
Ok, let’s break it down.
The Associate level is the first rank of the Isagenix compensation plan and is achieved when you first sign up as a distributor or Independent associate.
To start you will have to sign up through an existing Associate or higher, and they will have to walk you through the process of getting started.
If you are a customer you can simply log in to your back office account and follow the steps that is outlined in your back office to upgrade from a customer to an Associate member.
As an Associate ranked member you will automatically get the reduced price for any product, and also have the ability to participate in the compensation plan pay structure to start earning commissions.
You will also get your own website link so that you can refer customers and potential personal sign ups.
You will only be qualified to receive the fast start money at this point.
You will qualify to receive group volume, but will not be paid the cycle bonus money until you reach the rank of Consultant.
To achieve the rank of Consultant, you will need to start sponsoring people into the Isagenix business.
And at this point hopefully, your personally enrolled team members start enrolling people into the business as well.
When you accumulate 100 BV on your right leg and 100 BV on your left leg you will automatically be qualified as a Consultant rank at the end of the month.
Refer to the Isagenix Consultant Chart below to get a visual understanding of this process:
Rank Advancement Bonus
You earn this bonus when you reach the rank of Consultant.
The payout is $50.
**Note: For up to 20 personally enrolled Associate members that you enroll that reach the rank of Consultant, you will also earn an additional $100 bonus.
At this rank, you are now qualified to earn the cycle bonuses that I described earlier.
What does a Team Cycle Bonus Look Like?
Basically, as described before, you will need a certain amount of volume on your left leg, and a certain amount of volume on your right leg.
The volume needed is 600 BV on one side and 300 BV on the other side.
Once you are able to achieve this milestone you will now be paid out a cycle bonus which equals to about $54 in commissions.
This is paid out weekly.
As described before when you have a different or off number on either side of your legs, the calculation still stands when you have an instance of 300 BV on one leg and 600 BV on the other leg.
So let’s say you have 2700 BV on one leg and 930 BV on the other leg, you will cycle 3 times.
The leftover volume would stand with you still having 300 BV on one leg (the one that had 2700) and 30 BV on the other (the one that had 930).
This volume will not be lost and carried over to the next week.
So this volume is not lost, and you will not have to start from 0 BV on either leg the next week giving you a jump start for having more chances of getting even more cycle commission bonuses the following weeks.
This carry over volume will not expire and continue as long as you stay active by pacing your auto-ship every month and staying qualified as a Consultant.
Associates can also accumulate this volume as well, but as a Consultant you don’t qualify for cycles.
Another way that the carry over volume expires is when a MegaCycle is experienced, which is explained below.
The maximum cycles that you can earn is 250 per week.
To become a Manager Rank within the Isagenix compensation plan you must complete all prior requirements as a Consultant and also have 2 qualified personally enrolled Consultants on your front-line.
Another bonus that you can earn when reaching Manager rank is when 2 of your personally enrolled members reach the rank of Consultant and you reaching the rank of Manager within 60 days.
If you can achieve this, Isagenix will pay you a Crystal Manager Promotional Bonus that pays you $250 in commissions.
This rank will take effect 30 days after you reach it.
Managers also qualify for what is called the Holiday Bonus Pool which is an incentive that pays out bonuses commissions for certain year long activities that Isagenix determines.
Refer to the image below to get a visual understanding of the Isagenix Manager rank.
The way to move up to the Director rank is by sponsoring 6 personally enrolled Associates that have moved in in rank to the Consultant rank.
All 6 of the personally preferred members have qualified at the Consultant rank at the same time.
Isagenix offers an additional bonus for hitting the rank of Director 120 after the day you joined in the form of commissions.
The amount that they will pay you for hitting the Director rank in 120 days is $750 and is called the Crystal Director bonus.
Along with all the benefits of being a Consultant and Manager rank, you now qualify for the Director bonus pool.
More details about the Director pool can be found in your back-office.
Here is a visual image of the Director rank to better understand what it entails.
To qualify for the Executive rank you need to be on an active auto-ship, with at least 10 personally sponsored or enrolled Associates that are all qualified at the Consultant rank all the same time.
You will also need at least 5 of your personally sponsored Consultants to be on your right leg, and at least 5 personally enrolled Consultant on your left leg as another qualification.
If you achieve this within 180 days from the day you sign up as an Associate, you will earn a promotional bonus commission of $1,000.
This is called the Crystal Executive bonus.
You will now qualify for Executive bonus pools.
When you qualify for the Executive rank you will now unlock new ways to earn in the Isagenix pay structure which are:
- Executive Team Matching Bonuses
- Re-Entries (see below)
This in addition of having all the benefits of being a Director as well.
See the image below to get a visual illustration of what it means to be at the Director rank level.
10% Matching Compensation Bonus
As a qualified Executive, you are now considered a leader in the Isagenix company.
With all the additions that were mentioned before, as an Executive rank, you are entitled to a 10% matching team bonus on all of your personally enrolled personals or 2nd level which are also at the rank of Consultants or above.
What this means is that you can earn a total of 500 cycles per week.
250 for the regular team bonus cycles and another 250 cycles in the matching team bonuses.
Also there is a limit per qualified matching bonus that you can get per person as well.
The limit is 25 per person that is on your personally enrolled personals or 2nd level Consultants and above.
Re-Entries Pay Structure Bonus
To qualify for a Re-Entry Bonus, you will need to be ranked and paid as an Executive rank for 3 commission weeks and have produced at least 225 cycles.
Plus, you must have maintained a paid as Executive rank for the last 3 months.
When these criteria are met, then you may apply for a re-entry position.
The position of your Re-Entry position when qualified would be located directly above your Executive ranked position.
And all future Re-Entry Bonus positions would have to be positioned above your last Re-Entry position.
When this Re-Entry Position is approved, your starting position, or “primary” position would now be 1 leg of your sales, which would be considered your power leg, or majority volume sales leg.
So basically you can leverage the volume you accumulated from your primary position.
All additional Re-Entry Bonuses must qualify by reaching the same qualifications needed from the original Re-Entry Bonus position achieved.
The Re-Entry Bonus positions are simply a means to earn additional income from the Isagenix compensation plan.
For more information about the Re-Entry Bonus details you can refer to the Platinum rank handbook you can get in your back-office.
Here is an image to explain these details of this bonus commissions to have a visual form of information.
The Platinum rank is the highest position that you can achieve within the Isagenix pay structure.
To qualify for the Platinum rank, you simply have to qualify for the Re-Entry bonus with the qualifications needed.
Platinum will have additional perks and benefits outside of the Isagenix compensation plan.
Special Incentive and Promotions Commission Bonuses
There is an additional program that is not really part of the main Isagenix commission structure which is called the special incentive and promotion bonuses.
This essentially works when Isagenix announces special contests or promotions throughout the year.
Some of the prizes consists of extra commissions earned for what currently is officially designed in the pay plan, like extra volume per personal sign ups, or for a specific amount of sign up in a certain time period.
Other prizes include trips, travel, awards, and branded Isagenix gear.
You can find these contests usually within your back-office in the announcements page.
The recognition program are special pins that you can pin to your clothing or gear, usually your shirt.
The pins that are given out are listed below and consist of:
Silver Circle – 1-8 Star Silver Circle pins that are given out when you have between 10 and 250 cycles.
Golden Circle – 1-8 Star Golden Circle pins that are given out when you have between 10 and 250 cycles.
Platinum – 7-20 Star Platinum pins that are given out when you have between 200 and 850 cycles.
Star Executive – This pin is given out to award the Executive ranked members that have helped their personal referrals to reach the Executive rank level. A new one is awarded to you every time this achievement is accomplished.
Million Dollar Earners – Any associate that reaches a million dollar in earning is awarded a special Million Dollar Earners pin.
A Megacycle occurs at the end of any day that a minimum of 100 Cycles has been accumulated since the Associate’s (1) enrollment date or (2) last Megacycle.
To provide stability to the Compensation Plan, Isagenix will hold over up to 150,000 GV in the Major Volume Sales Team and all remaining GV in your Minor Volume Sales Team toward earning your next Team Bonus. Any GV above the 150,000 GV from your Major Volume Sales Team is removed.
Isagenix Member Discounts and Perks
As a member of the Isagenix program you will receive a discount of about 10-25% off the normal retail price of any product sold.
The Isagenix chart below will show some options a regular customer has when they decide to join the Isagenix program.
How You Get Paid With Isagenix
Isagenix has what they call the IsaWallet.

From your IsaWallet account you can then use those commissions for a few things like:

The shipping is additional which is around $14 additional.
You will have several options of product packs to choose from the will be priced differently and also contribute different volume amounts toward your commissionable volume that you should take note of when signing up new reps to your business.
My Closing Thoughts About Isagenix
The main reason that we join Network Marketing companies is to earn money.
And you can absolutely make money with Isagenix…
But here is what you will run into.
To be honest, when you take what the statistics reveal, unless you join a business opportunity with experience or bring over a prior team of other experienced builders when you start a new opportunity, you are going to have to refer quite a few people into the business as reps to find just a handful of motivated and hungry builders just like yourself that can help you build your downline to earn an incredible income from home.
And with an old-school tactic, (like what Isagenix teaches you) you will eventually run out of people to talk to that is on your list.
And so, many motivated builders will start using other avenues of advertising and marketing to find new people to talk to.
Like online marketing with paid ads, or posting on social media.
But with the bigger MLM companies, you are not going to be able to get away with advertising online for too long due to their strict guidelines against advertising on the internet.
The Secret Sauce For Finding Qualified Prospects
But advertising online to find motivated and qualified prospects for any MLM company can work, but you will need to lead with a great front-end offer first.
The offer must be a low cost and low risk type of offer that has a lot of appeal to it of course.
Something that peaks interest in many people but also breaks down there objections fast so that they can join the program.
And ideally a program that has some great training as well, although not necessary if you plan on providing the training yourself.
But these type of offers are the secret sauce front end offers that many of the big leaders that you see in many Network Marketing companies have in place to find motivated and more importantly qualified prospects.
The front-end offer that I recommend is listed in the resource section I have below.
Building Isagenix is only just one way to earn an extra income from home.
With the number of opportunities and programs that are out on the Internet right now, there are so many other possibilities to earn from home that you have to pick from.
I’m not saying Isagenix is not a good company to work, it might be the perfect opportunity for you.
I know plenty of times where a person with no experience went into a company not knowing what to do besides the basics, followed some sound advice and then got to work where it paid out big time for them.
And with no means that the success that they achieved was shear luck, we all had to work our butts off to get there.
But it is possible to achieve when you have the burning desire and motivation, and when you have that, you can become successful with the Isagenix compensation plan.
I personally started out in Network Marketing and have built huge teams in several companies through the power of Internet Marketing.
With that said, if I were to start all over, I wouldn’t have started with Network Marketing, I would have started with some type of affiliate program that is offered on the Internet because I have found that more people have much faster success and make more money up-front and stick to it, when starting with affiliate marketing.
This is why I highly recommend checking out my resource below if you want to make money quicker, easier, and a learning experience you can then take with you to build any other business online.
But if you already joined Isagenix or eventually decide to join, then I want to wish you the very best and hope you do extremely well with it, but if you run out of people to talk to, then I would suggest checking out my link below, it will help you find more qualified people for your business.
And don’t worry if you are thinking that you can’t do it because you think it may interfere with your company, what I’m sharing is NOT in any competition with any Network Marketing company that is on the market.
