The Top 25 MLM Companies In China

Today, we’re going to list the top 25 MLM Companies in China.

There are those who think multilevel marketing is illegal in China. The fact is: they are mistaken. There are certain procedures that must be followed, but MLM is alive and well in China.

Some of the rules include:

  • The company must have a business license.

  • The company can only pay one level of commission.

  • Direct sellers must follow an advanced training course from the company.

  • After finishing the course, the sellers must get a license.

  • Direct sellers must wear a badge reflecting their status.

So as you can see, MLM is quite different in China, but it is getting stronger.

  1. Seems like tapping into the so called Chinese market is now a legit strategy which is a good thing. Whether it is MLM or whatever industry the goal remains the same. ” More eyes means more profit. I just wish that this will happen globally. Not just in China.

    1. Yes, and as that happens, you will see a MLM BOOM there. MLM is already popular in China. When the economy is bad, our industry booms. When the economy is good, our industry booms. Win win!

  2. Very successful MLM companies, they must be very solid and important to have got a spot in the China market. There are many people who can buy their products there.

  3. Seems like excellent beauty and health products from very reputable Chinese companies. I would love to try the Chinese health drink that’s made a name for itself and the ancient Chinese remedies and herbs. Great list!

    1. With such a huge population, and a booming economy, China is a great place for MLM Companies to thrive. There are many great companies doing business there and I’m sure many more will pop up in the next few years.

    1. Yes, MLM in China operates differently than here in the USA because of their laws. I know the laws are changing all the time and I can’t keep up with it. I’m sure if they follow the local laws in their country, there is still a great opportunity with this industry.

    1. Yes, there are lots of good MLM Companies in China. Like you said, Longrich is a good company. I agree. At the end of the day, you simply need to partner up with a MLM Company that aligns with your values, hopes, dreams and goals.

  4. Good to see that MLM marketing is big here but I guess that is how things are now. Traditional marketing is not advisable now so we are all are thinking out of the box. At least until this virus passes.

    1. Yes, with COVID and the quarantine, many people are starting side hustles because they either lost their job, or had their hours cut back. It’s always important to have a Plan B before you need one. Don’t wait.

Year 2019 will start their MLM biz in China, very proper company, they are very strong involved Korea government .The MLM is on the way to get.
      Beside messenger, can Contact me trough line too:yellowriver55

  7. While multi level marketing is managed quite differently in China, I do suggest that network marketers start speaking with and attracting prospects from China. It is a lightly tapped resource and has huge potential.

    I know that some network marketers worry about language differences, but I do know that Google Chrome is set up to translate languages to English or whatever language you use. It may not get it perfect, but it comes close enough that we can understand the basic meaning of what is being said.

    It was great fun and a learning experience writing this post.

    Thank you for having me do so Chuck.
