What is Commissionable Volume (CV) and how is it earned?
Commissionable Volume (CV) influences how much Team Commissions are paid to each team member. CV collects in your right and left sales teams as a result of the sale of products and New Associate Product Packs, which occur in each team during the month. The CV to dollar ratio differs in each market.
What is the difference between the Pay Team and the Strong Team?
You build two sales teams, a right sales team and a left sales team. During the month, Commissionable Volume (CV) builds as an outcome of the sale of products and New Associate Product Packs. At the end of every month, the Pay Team is the sales team that has the lesser CV of the two sales teams, and the Strong Team is the team that has more CV. Because the Pay Team and the Strong Team can change from time to time, you should place new team members equally in each sales team, then you can maximize your potential for Team Bonuses and Matching Check Bonuses.
How does the Preferred Customer Program work?
There are two types of Max customers: Retail Customers and Preferred Customers. Retail Customers buy products directly from you the Max Associate, and pay the retail price of the product. You keep 100% of the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price of the product.
Preferred Customers register with the Company, and are linked to you when they sign-up. Preferred Customers can buy products at wholesale prices by signing-up for AutoShip. You’ll bank a 25% commission on the volume connected with personally enrolled Preferred Customer’s orders.
Preferred Customers don’t take a position in your sales teams. If they eventually want to become a team member, they’ll submit an Associate Enrolment form and invest-in a Starter Kit. They will then lock-in a position like any other new team member.
Because of generous commissions paid on Preferred Customer purchases, the CV is 50%, or one half CV point for each dollar of volume ordered. Volume connected with Preferred Customer orders counts towards your Personal Commissionable Volume (PV) requirement. All PV you have over 100 goes in your Pay Team, and for that reason pays you a 10% commission.
Naturally, you are encouraged to sign-up Preferred Customers. Personal Volume (PV) produced from enrolment packs or upgrades do not count toward the PV surplus over 100, and will not be added to your Pay Team. Only Preferred Customer volume and regular product purchases will count toward your 100 PV. Personal Volume from sign-ups or upgrade packs does qualify you for monthly personal volume requirements.

How do I get paid at Max International?
We recommend you have at least 100 PV on Autoship when you first invest-in your Starter Kit and New Associate Product Pack. Next, easily enrol two people who are on a minimum 50 CV AutoShip and put one of those team members on your right sales team and the other on your left sales team. Then rinse and repeat.
How are Team Bonuses determined?
Team Bonuses are exciting, profiting you 10% of Pay Team Volume. Here’s a quick example, if your Pay Team has 10,000 CV, and your Strong Team has 12,000 CV, the Team Bonus paid to YOU is $1,000. Then the 10,000 CV is removed from both sales teams, while 2,000 CV is carried over to the Strong Team. Team Bonuses are paid to you on the 15th of every month for the last month’s activity.
How do I earn FastTrack Bonuses?
You earn FastTrack Bonuses by signing-up a new Associate who invests-in a Starter Kit and a New Associate Product Pack. FastTrack Bonuses range anywhere from $75 to $150, depending on which Product Pack is sold. You also collect FastTrack Bonuses every time one of your personally signed-up Associates sells a Product Pack.
It’s not essential for your new Associate to invest-in a product pack to collect FastTrack Bonuses. However, if they invest-in a Product Pack, your Associate has a product for personal use, a product to share with others, and also gives the new Associate Personal Commissionable Volume (PV), which qualifies them for Team Commissions.
How do I earn Matching Check Bonuses?
To earn Matching Check Bonuses you put personally signed-up Associates equally in both of your right and left sales teams, up to the max requirement of four team members in each binary team.
You have the chance to receive Matching Check Bonuses on every personally signed-up Associate, and on every Associate they sign-up in their downline, on and on, through SEVEN LEVELS!
You and your qualified personally signed-up Associates must get a minimum PV for the required rank to qualify for a Matching Check Bonus.
Can I enrol somebody, who lives in another country?
Yes, you can enrol anyone living in countries where Max International has set-up an office to distribute their products. The current locations are Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Singapore and the Philippines.
Now is the time to grow your Max business. We are opening for business shortly in Thailand & Vietnam. In the future Max will be available in more countries as reliable distribution channels are established. This means there will be even more opportunity for you to easily expand your Max business.
Can Pregnant Women use Max supplements?
Max International does not recommend taking their supplements during pregancy. It's always a good idea to have a discussion with your doctor before taking any new medication or supplement. This includes commonly available vitamin C. In fact there is anecdotal evidence that high doses of vitamin C during pregancy can be HARMFUL to the baby.
What if I have no volume for a six-month period?
You are dropped from the team commission structure after six months with no activity.
You suggested that "Max" is a Recession Proof Business, can you please explain?
