I want to share my personal experience as an It Works distributor. I was with the company for about 6 months.

After listening to enough of their "success" stories I finally figured I'd give it a try as a side job for extra income. There's a fee of $99.00 to join. There are many things they don't tell you until after you have already joined. First, if you order products at their discount you will be automatically signed for for 3 months.

If you try to cancel you have to pay a $50 fee. They try to scam people into signing up without telling them the whole story. Then, unless you cancel your subscription after three months, you will continue to receive It Works products forever! Be sure to log in to your online account and cancel and remove all of your payment information or you will be charged for a long time.

Next, you basically have to pay money to earn money. Unless you sell $150 worth of products to customers EVERY month you will not receive your commission. You also have the option of paying $80 every month yourself in order to get commission. Your commission check could be $20.00 yet you would have to pay $80.00 to receive that...pretty ridiculous right?

The distributors teach you how to get others to join your team as a distributor or to get customers by basically lying to them. They tell you to never tell a customer that they are signing them up for three months! They just say you're getting a 40% discount but don't tell you the rest of the terms! If you do decide to sign up as a loyal customer make sure you do it yourself so you know your login information and read the terms and conditions.

If you don't and want to cancel before the three months are up you will be charged $50! Overall, I have spent over $500.00 on products and fees and have only earned $15.00 in 6 months! I earned more a day working a part time job when I was a teen. Next, they don't tell you there's a $20.00 fee every month for your website to work.

That's in addition to the $80.00 so you're commission qualified. Basically, you'll be paying more every month then you'll actually earn. Don't get fooled by their success stories, the more money someone has earned with this company actually means they lied that much better. They teach you to lie to get customers because that's the only way someone will join them.

Their products don't work either. I have tried 8 of their wraps and they have done absolutely nothing. I mean I would understand if one didn't work, but EIGHT? Come on.

Then I tried the cleanse which again did absolutely nothing at all. I tried the Hair,Skin, and Nails vitamins which did nothing to make my hair grow. I would have been better off buying the vitamins at Walmart for $10.00. All the products themselves are made in Mexico from really cheap ingredients.

You have to wonder if they're even safe to use since we all know the water in Mexico is unclean and very dangerous in most places. What are you really putting into your body?! It's kind of a scam that they don't have any reviews on their website don't you think? The only photos they use of their products actually working are ones they created themselves.

You have to ask yourself what kind of company really wouldn't allow their customers to post honest reviews of their products. The kind that just wants your money. Please really think about everything I just mentioned before you join this company as a customer or distributor. It's really unethical and misleading to it's customers and distributors.

If you're reading this, I believe you can find a much better job literally anywhere and make a better living in an honest way where you don't have to lie to people everyday.

Don't waste your time, the only people really succeeding in this company are the ones who know how to lie really well. I think you deserve better.

Itworks promised thousands of dollars a month but I only lost money and have tons of *** makeup that my friends don't want. I've been blocked on tiktok and Instagram by some of my favorite people and I am sad.

Avoid ALL mlms and pyramid schemes and the world will be a better place.

Just stay away from this dishonest company. Save your money and buy products elsewhere and find a different line of work. They sell cheaply made products from Mexico and pass them off as "natural" and "organic." This company is a joke.

It works Global teaches you to preach God and then disconnect with anyone who doesn't agree with you. Even your family.

If your circle doesn't support you just get another circle. I have known several people involved with this company and it does some major brainwashing and turns you against the people closest to you. Beware.

Very few people actually make money and if you do it takes years and by then you have no family or friends left. #$cult atmosphere !!

This company is one huge scam. They encourage you to relentlessly message strangers 20-30 times, to push your products.

You're taught that, no means not right now, and to continue messaging them until you get a yes, or the person blocks you. Name one other company that does that? None! Only these MLM's, pyramid schemes do.

If someone tells you no, it's NO! You don't keep hounding them. And if anyone tells you that you don't have to run an auto ship, they're lying! It's literally in their comp plan that to qualify for a shopping spree or any bonuses, you have to have an auto ship running.

To get to 80pv, it's about $130, plus your $20 dollar website fee. So you have $150 going out every month, and you'd be lucky to even earn that in a month. Truth is, you'll lose money. Also, if anyone is telling you they're making money, please read their Income Disclosure Statement.

It literally shows that over 95% of people earn less than $250 a month, with the majority earning an average of $48 a month. That's before your auto ship and website fee and any other money that scam out of you.

Point is..... Don't do it!

I joined a month ago, and it’s not been great for me... how do I quit permanently?

Do I have to contact customer service? .

#1930716

Ok so I made the mistake of becoming a distributor and agree with everything you have said, they lie and rob you. So how do I stop being a distributor?

It works is a joke!

It works for me! I have good eating habits that's key to good health.

If you're eating fast foods, processed foods, junk foods and syrupy sodas etc. Of course you won't see a change. Just like with any business you have to be ethical. If you weren't making any money is because success begins with attitude.

It's mind boggling how bitterness can pursuade the weakest readers of negative comments. What a misery.

You are amazing you just called all of these people weak because obviously you needed to feel bigger. Well not.

@Tayden Iow

then you don't need the products if you eat right

#1911381

It literally tells you the terms on the first page when you sign up to be a distributor. If you didn’t read it that’s your own fault. You can earn a lot of money if you actually put in the work.

This is exactly what I’m going through with these ppl. Except I didn’t pay $99 to join.

I agreed to TRY the products for a distributor who was very misleading on her post. She said she was looking for 6 ppl to try the products. I agreed to purchase and try the products, not knowing that I was becoming a member and committing to 3 months of auto shipments! When I tried to cancel the order a few minutes after it was placed, I was charged a $50 membership fee and have been going back and forth with their so called support agents who keeps acting dumb and repeating the same damn thing!

They CANNOT force you to be a member of their bogus company! I have reported them to BBB and is trying to get Gephardt to investigate.
