4life.com - 4Life Research USA, LLC - very unserious

4life Food SupplementI got at my last article about losing money by participating in the USANA system a comment on Facebook about 4Life Research USA, LLC (4life.com). The comment contained phrases like "how about 4life? have you heard about them? they had a very good system.4ways to earn and very unique! they are a research company", "if you dig on their complan, quite reasonable than any mlm and binary system out there." and "4life is different, very humble and yet generous. Actually you can be a member of without taking out money from your pocket.".

Exact this case shows the difference between promotion and reality. It is true that you can sign-up without paying something but only as a customer without any benefits. For this it does not make any sense to sign-up if you don't like to support them with your personal data. As soon as you like to be more than a normal customer you have to buy from them. It does not matter if you can use their products or not. In this case is already no difference to the other MLM companies which only like to pull money out of your pocket for paying the people on top of the pyramid. Don't forget that you need a lot of people from the base paying for the toys, fun and happiness of the people on the top.

What makes them very unserious?

Take a look at the different prices and packaging from the different parts of the world. You can say now that these are different parts of the world - one is Europe and the other one is an Asian Country and the transport is higher in price. That is not really true the container price is in Asia even cheaper than in Europe. Normally is in Asia everything cheaper than in Europe or USA otherwise are the products nothing else than non-seller. Compare the prices in the table below:

For the case that you'll say now that the compared products are not the same, then take a look at the name at the packaging. There you see that the same product has only another packaging for the same content - only the price is at the Philippines nearly the double from Europe. The funny thing is that the price in the United States - the home country of 4Life Research USA, LLC - is higher than in Europe: $ 61.45! The exchange rate between Euro and US$ got down during the last year. That means the Euro has been coming cheaper, but even this difference does not explain such a price difference. It shows only that the products of 4Life Research USA, LLC are simple overpriced not to mention pure usury.

The national statistics offices tell us the average monthly income. In Austria is the average monthly income € 1,979 (US$ 2,144.68 / PHP 97,039.30) and at the Philippines depending of the region between PHP 19,000 and PHP 20,000 (€ 406.53 / US$ 440.63). You pay in Austria for renting a flat normally more than € 800 (US$ 866.98 / PHP 39,227.61). I have rented at the Philippines a house for PHP 7,500 (€ 152.45 / US$ 165.23).

Can you see now why in the Philippines the product from 4Life Research USA, LLC are non-seller?
While the average European needs to work one week for buying the most expensive starter pack a Philippian needs to work more than seven weeks for it. As there is no possibility to promote the products international (different product names for the same product, different prices for a lot of countries and not all products are in each country available) does it even not make any sense to sign up with 4Life Research USA, LLC from the Philippines or any other country with a similar price-income ratio. The people have in such a case simple not enough money to buying such high priced products.

The same way you get from your first level down-line only 2% but your sponsor gets 25%. This system let you pay a long time before you are able to earn something. That you don't trick the system 50% of the new distributors you enroll have to be in your direct down-line (first level) - there where you earn only 2% from their sales. Such a system is designed for growing fast and financing the upstream people. As soon no more people get enrolled the complete system will crash like each pyramid construction.

The owner of 4Life Research USA, LLC should try their own product "4Life Transfer Factor® ReCall® - Targeted brain support for optimal mental functioning" and revise afterwards their offer. Hopefully they have not used this product already before they have invented their offers.
