Active:

The status that many multi-level marketing companies require in order to maintain their title as an independent distributor. They must generate a minimum monthly personal volume, which can be achieved by personal purchases, customer purchases, or a combination of both. The amount of personal volume needed to remain ‘Active’ will vary based on the company.

Affiliate Marketing:

Another form of performance-based marketing that is commonly confused with multi-level marketing. In this model, a business rewards affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts. Unlike MLM, affiliate marketing is tied entirely to the amount of traffic driven and does not offer the opportunity to build a team to increase your income.

Autoship:

A program designed to ensure that a selection of products of your choice is automatically shipped each month. Many companies encourage theirdistributors to enroll in an autoship program to ensure they remain active and qualified each month. Most companies allow autoship orders to be changed, modified, or cancelled at any time.
