Vestige vs Modicare vs Amway – Best MLM in 2022?

Vestige, Modicare and Amway are the most popular MLM companies in India. Three of the company are the revival of each other and have huge distributor networks in India.

Amway is an American company whereas Vestige and Modicare are Indian companies.

The aim of this post is to provide a detailed and unbiased comparison of Vestige, Modicare and Anyway. There are millions of distributors who indulge in these companies and always have debates to prove their MLM company superior.

So here we are to make things easier for you.



Vestige Vs Modicare Vs Amway

This Vestige Vs Modicare Vs Amway comparison is as per Indian consumers and distributors who want to use their products and want to become part of them.

vestige-vs-modicare-vs-amway

Amway India was established in 1995 and started its commercial option in 1998. Amway was actually founded in 1959 by Richard M DeVos and Jay Van Andel in Michigan, USA.

Company NameVestigeModicareAmway
FounderGautam Bali, Kanwar Bir Singh, Deepak SoodSamir ModiRichard M DeVos and Jay Van Andel
Year Started200419961995 (India: 1998)

Modicare calls itself as first direct selling company in India started by Samir Modi in 1996. Samir Modi is the son of business tycoon KK Modi and the brother of IPL (Indian Premier League) founder Lalit Modi.

Vestige was started in 2004 by Gautam Bali, Kanwar Bir Singh and Deepak Sood.

Three of the companies share a common range of products i.e. personal care, FMCG and other daily needs products.

Three of the company started operations in India within an 8 year period and have a common product range, which makes the comparison more interesting.

Parameter of Comparison

A comparison without proper parameters is meaningless. So, here we will use the following parameters to compare these three MLM companies.

  • Starting Cost
  • Products
  • Compensation Plan
  • Market Saturation
  • Training & Support
  • Reputation

Starting Cost

Before Direct Selling Guidelines comes into existence in India, many companies were taking joining fees.

Direct Selling Guidelines 2016 and Direct Selling Rules 2021 restricted MLM companies to charge any fees other than the product cost.

Vestige, Modicare and Amway don’t take any joining fees. But to become their distributor, individuals have to make some minimum purchase.

Three of the company have different initial purchase amounts.

In Amway, you have to purchase products of around 100$ means 7,000 INR to become an active Amway IBO (Independent Business Owner).

In vestige, one has to do 30 BV personal purchases i.e. around 1500 Rs.

And last, the Modicare consultant is required to make 25 BV product purchases which is just 100 Rs.

BV (Business Volume) are some points on products that are decided by MLM companies. BVs are used to calculate different incomes of distributors.

Here Modicare is the winner. Extremely high initial purchase cost is a major drawback of Amway.

Note that, we have only considered the very first purchase amount. MLM companies have different purchase requirements to maintain distributor ranks. So whenever you are examining an MLM company, with starting cost also understand the further repurchase requirements to maintain ranks and earnings.

Products

Products are the backbone of every direct selling company. Compared to most other MLM companies, Amway, Vestige and Modicare have done remarkable work with their products.

The major things to notice about MLM companies’ products:

  • Quality: Products should be effective and made of good ingredients. The company should not be selling snake oil.
  • Demand: If products are of daily use and have regular demand then distributors can find customers quicker.
  • Product Range: A large product range offers several options to distributors and customers to make purchases.
  • Reasonable Pricing: MLM companies should have reliable products which justify their price.

Personal Care, FMCG, Appliances and Agriculture products are common in three of the companies.

You can check out their complete product price list by visiting the following links.

To make this product comparison easier, we are taking the example of Toothpaste and comparing it with a retail market product Colgate.

vestige modicare amway products
CompanyVestigeModicareAmwayColgate
Product NameDentassure ToothpasteFresh Moments ToothpasteGlister™ Multi Action ToothpasteColgate Strong Teeth Toothpaste
MRP (Pack Size)75rs (100gm)48rs (100gm)270rs (190gm)75rs (150gm)
Cost per 100gm75rs48rs142rs50rs

Vestige’s Dentassure Toothpaste and Modicare’s Fresh Moments Toothpaste cost 75rs and 48rs for 100 gm respectively.

Amway’s Glister Toothpaste cost 270 Rs for 190 gm, whereas Colgate’s most popular toothpaste Strong Teeth cost around 50rs for 100gm.

Compare to the retail market Modicare has competitive product pricing, Vestige’s products are slightly costly and Amway’s product is extremely overpriced.

Not limited to toothpaste example, but the same scenario goes with most products and verdict is.

  • Amway’s products are extremely overpriced
  • Vestige and Modicare customers have to pay slightly extra for every product compared to the retail market.

Many distributors argue that Amway is expensive cause the quality of its products is the best.

For Indian consumers pricing is primary and quality is secondary. Most Indians belong to the middle or lower-middle class, hence it is not possible for them to use these expensive products for some organic or quality tag.

Considering the market, Modicare and Vestige are ahead of Amway due to better pricing whereas the quality of the product should be examined individually to understand better.

Compensation Plan

Comparing MLM compensation plans is not a feasible thing. Actually, every MLM company has different numbers and types of income, which can divide into retail commission (personal product sales) and residual commission (downline product sales).

If a company offers a high retail sales commission then the residual commission can be low and vice versa.

Retail Sales Commission in Vestige, Modicare and Amway is upto 20% on product MRP.

Comparing income plans is not feasible. Because some MLM Company facilitates more income on direct sales and some on sales by the downline.

Market Saturation

Market Saturation is a less-discussed term in the MLM industry while it plays a major role in further growth.

Market Saturation arises when the maximized requirement of the market is fulfilled and further growth is not possible.

MLM market saturation

Amway is operating for more than 25 years in India and also advertised its products on national TV.

The larger number of our country’s population is already familiar with “Amway” company and knows it as an MLM company with expensive products.

So new people are not interested to become part of a company which has such a reputation.

Vestige is also going to hit market saturation, as it has j-curve growth in recent times. Vestige is the current largest direct selling company in India and with time, Vestige’s growth will stick like Amway, if they don’t do something innovative to maintain growth.

Almost all existing direct sellers never want to become part of any old direct selling company. This stereotype is extremely strong against all three Vestige, Modicare and Amway.

Modicare has a slight advantage as it is not popular as the other two and has a decent reputation, this is discussed more ahead.

Support & Training

Earning is always behind learning. For a new network marketer, training and proper guidelines to work in an MLM company are required first.

At present, very few MLM companies provide that training and support. Fortunately, three of the companies are doing great on this parameter.

These companies organize seminars and training sessions for their distributors. Sadly instead of teaching, many MLM seminars are cheap motivation centers where fake cheques and lavish lifestyles are shown to brainwash young people.

You can find their training session on official websites and mobile applications of Vestige, Modicare and Amway.

Moreover, Vestige, Modicare and Amway all release their products catalogue regularly. Products catalogue are a vital marketing tool for every direct seller.

You can check their catalogue by clicking the below link.

Reputation

Network Marketing is the business of people and it is important for companies to maintain a positive reputation, therefore people can trust them and can become happy customers or distributors.

After operating for 2 decades, Amway India has devastated its reputation. Several warrants are released to arrest Amway India’s CEO till now.

In recent times, Vestige’s reputation has also been ruined after its skyrocketed growth. The obvious reason is misleading earning claims made by their distributors. You can find various internet memes where Vestige is trolled for extraordinary income claims their distributors made.

Modicare is on the safer side in this parameter. As they haven’t gone wild with their promotion tactics and distributors promote products to real customers.

My Opinion

Conserving the above parameters, the ranking of these companies is Modicare > Vestige > Amway.

Amway has overpriced products, a bad reputation and saturated market, making it the worst option among the three.

But Amway India has set a template for most Indian direct selling companies and they achieved growth following Amway’s footprint. Unfortunately, Amway’s customer and distributor base is shrinking not only in India but in the USA as well.

Vestige has made it to the top 30 direct selling companies in the world as per revenue and it is the very first Indian company to do so. But deceptive business tactics, false earning claims by leaders and misguiding youth has become now common practice in vestige.

But for products, Vestige and Modicare are far better compared to most other MLM companies. Vestige has suppressed many MLM companies in India including the oldest one Modicare.

There are endless, pros and cons of all MLM companies. I know it’s hurt when someone comments on your organization, but facts can’t be ignored.

Hope you make a wise choice for yourself.

Conclusion

I hope you like our post on this hot topic “Vestige vs Modicare vs Amway”. I tried to provide all the required information and help you to choose the best MLM company.

Vestige, Modicare and Amway all of them have their own pros and cons. Many network marketers have a very wrong mindset, where they demote other MLM companies to promote their MLM without any logical points.

Lastly, don’t ignore the MLM success rate driven by Jon M. Taylor which is 0.4%. Only 4 out of 1000 network marketers gets success who are at the top of the pyramid.

So, if you are a highly skilled marketing person, understand MLM and have large contact, then probably MLM is for you. Otherwise, there are several easy and better ways to earn money in Life. This is the harsh reality that your loveable MLM Leaders never tell you.

      1. Very well explained nd especially a people who get motivated after seeing videos of leaders who are earning good income nd they decide to quit there jobs..They need to understand the MLM concept.. I am not against if it.. but need to take a wise decision based on your own skills

    1. Very unique comparison.. Perfectly define the current situation of MLM.. 0.04%…. It’s true..
      I am also doing mlm….
      Thank you..

      1. Great information
        But you must described the compensation plan.
        How much money distribute to the associates in % of the collected money against the products

    2. If you want to get rich , Start your own business, invest in stock market(it’s not easy), or get a central government job, but you need to work hard, handle risks, psychologically strong..my suggestion I have joined modicare, vestige but it’s not easy to get rich in these field (network marketing)

  1. It is true that success rate is too low in MLM companies but we have to understand it from different perspective.
    First in most other careers too sucess rate is also not too rosy in India. Even a petty kirana shop often fails in many cases despite giving whole 10 hours of your day. Similarly success rate in getting job and being successful is also too low. If you take a closure look sucess rate in most businesses is maximum of one to two percent only. Often people fails in multiple careers before settling for in their life.
    Secondly most people just join MLM in anticipation that their down line will work and they will start getting results. But truth is that if you are dedicated, disciplined and honest in selling the products / plans sucess rate is good. I joined Modicare about 7 months back on insistence of a relative. For 6 months I did nothing except purchasing Rs. 2500 worth of goods every month. Then I decided to give a serious shot to it and in about one month I was amazed to see good results. All I did was I draw a list of persons I want to target. Since I am extremely busy with my regular job I spare half hour daily on it. Just called them one by one and introduce them to the scheme telephonically. Ofcourse I had support from my up line too which did meet personally with the targeted persons and bring the person in my downline. But harsh reality is that leave apart discussing products or plans with their links most people do not take pain to change their own purchasing habits of purchasing the products of MLM company they have themselves joined and expect company to shower them with money. In MLM sale is must and it must start with the home of joinee.

    1. u r right a minimum activity monthly rule has to be there n co should convert the zero people to minimum monthly purchase atleast

    2. Very true sarvjeet . One can’t earn thousands and lakhs just by sitting and hoping the downline to work. It needs same kind of hard work and dedication like we do when work in other companies and jobs .if one is not sure about the product,can’t sell to others .

        1. You’re absolutely right Jyothi Ji, Modicare is the Best Company in Direct Selling from Starting to Final Destination. I agree with your opinion.

    3. perfectly described. I think comparison is irrelevant in many context explained it. Quality is always pay the price. Pocket matters. For some people bicycles or two wheelers or car are costly and for other bicycle or two wheelers or car is cheaper. everywhere pocket determines. to increase the pocket size Direct selling is the best choice without distrubing present occupation.

  2. I have worked in RUP , SAFE SHOP , NANO TECHNOLOGY AND KBFL . But recently I saw plans of every National and international companies including Amway , Modicare and Vestige. I used the products. But I reached on a conclusion that Vestige is far better than any other. I joined it and now I am earning a stable amount from it. Now I am happy that I got a best company.

    1. Thank you for such a beautiful explanation.
      Helpful for those who want to trade as well as understand the product.

  3. In every field success rate is 1%. Like take examples of Medical and engineering entrances.
    Many students give entrance but only few passed with good marks.
    as like in mlm if u have skill , burning desire and definiteness of purpose .
    Then ,You will be a part of 1% people.

  4. The information given are one sided to show Vestige better than Amway & Modi cre . Dear Hement the writer of this Note tell me-
    1- How many patents Vestige Have and How many Amway and Modicare?
    2- Where is Manufacturing factoty of vestige in India?

    6- How Old is Amway in India and USA and How old is Vestige ?
    7- How Vestige leaders always try to bring senior leaders of Amway India . Amway Never try to bring any leader of Vestige in Amway.
    8- I am very senior leader in Amway . Many senior leders of Vestige tried to bring me vestige by giving PRALOBHAN of giving same status in Vestige . Tell me how this manpulation is possible in Vestige ?
    9- What is maximum income of your Dimond in vestige? Income of Dimond of Amway is more than 1 Crore per annum.
    10- How much amount Vestige has distributed to their leaders sofar in India? and how much amount Amway has distributed to their leaders in India?

    1. Hemant kumawat

      I understand your concern. I am not bias to any particular MLM Company and i tried my best to provide a neutral comparison. The reason for comparing only them was their product and business plan which overlap each other and they are in market from long time.

      There are few problem actually exist with amway and i think which you can’t digest. Amway is already suffering from market saturation and same situation is going to arrive for vestige as well. Vestige is also not a perfect company, they also have some drawback.

      In Business trying to suppress direct competitor is a normal phenomenon. For eg, now Ok Life Care is trying to overtake vestige.

      And all these mentioned question you need to ask someone who is top leader in vestige, so you can make a debate on it.

      For me, it was just comparing few companies on a few basic parameters which are most important for customers.

      1. You did a very bad job in this attempt to compare the organizations and the parameters you have considered are also not doing justice.
        A clear bias is evident.
        Anyways, all those who are relying on this comparison are missing out on framing genuine opinion. better you speak to a person who has really done business in Network Marketing and understand the real picture.
        But I will share my personal opinion about Vestige and Modicare distributors.
        Vestige – Their sole purpose is to break a Amway distributor and make them join their business as they know Amway has quality leaders. Business model is very faulty and manipulative.

        Modicare – Their products are not at par and no control on quality. They do not have transparency in the manufacturing process and have a very poor payment structure.

        Amway – The best thing which made me consider this opportunity is their Education System and transparency in Manufacturing Process. Their payment structure is also very transparent and reliable.

        1. Thanks for your comment. And now read your opinion again, is it not a biased one? Three companies, 1 paragraph for each. 2 criticism and 1 promotion. At least give the justification of what you say.

    2. Congrats ra Nikhil …it took 2 months for me to become 6%, you have achieved it in 1 month…all the best..frnd cum business partner ❤️..lot more to come ✊

    3. Its very common to find an aggressive defender like Ramesh in Amway who are very much part of extremist cult of BWW…

      Anyone who are into amway, Just watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEAQugj0eoI
      before you continue in this business…

      Now to answer Ramesh point to point
      “The information given are one sided to show Vestige better than Amway & Modi cre”
      Keep aside Modicare & Vestige.. Any other company is better than Amway without any doubt.
      1. “How many patents Vestige Have and How many Amway and Modicare?”
      Are you here to use the products, do the business and earn money or to count the patents? How is it relevant to count the patents? My dear Ramesh, Amway does not have a single patent, all the patents are given to the respective products and more over for your kind information, Amway is a marketing company and not product manufacturing company.. Grow up and learn something more apart from your Britt system, uplines, cult, terrorist group.
      2. “Where is Manufacturing factoty of vestige in India?”
      Do you really think is that a question? Why do you need the manufactoring factory address? Just because your system and uplines told that amway started manufacturing in India? Just because Amway started manufacturing in India, it does not make it an Indian company and moreover it does not really matter where the Manufacturing units are location.. Come out of your system & Cult
      3. “In How many country the Vestige and Amway are doing heir Business?”
      You can see in their websites.. Its common that new companies will have less countries in the list compared to old ones.. How does that even matter again?
      4. “Why all leaders of Vestige compares vestige with Amway ? If Vestige is better than amway than why r u comparing your best company with Amway?”
      This is an excellent question from your side. This is because all the vestige leaders are coming from Amway. Working like slaves and losing all the respect for years in Amway, the leaders have changed their way and joined Vestige and succeeded and attained financial freedom which is never achieved by any of your so called Diamonds still dancing on stages to attract new people.
      5. “Why Amway never compares Amway with Vestige?”
      You should always have something good or better from your side to compare with something else. Amway has nothing to compare with any other company. Moreover Amway has no GUTS to simply conduct a meeting with its name. It uses BWW like a coward.
      6. “How Old is Amway in India and USA and How old is Vestige ?”
      In what way Age matters my friend?
      7. “How Vestige leaders always try to bring senior leaders of Amway India . Amway Never try to bring any leader of Vestige in Amway.”
      No one ever joins Amway from other company.. All those who join Amway are entirely new to direct marketing. No Leader of vestige will join Amway even if Amway offer 100 crores.
      8. “I am very senior leader in Amway . Many senior leders of Vestige tried to bring me vestige by giving PRALOBHAN of giving same status in Vestige . Tell me how this manpulation is possible in Vestige ?”
      As you are senior leader in Amway, you will be like that for ever without attaining financial freedom and you will be showing plans, motivating people to earn peanuts for ever. So vestige leaders tries to help you, its not PRALOBHAN my friend. Its like showing a path to those who are dwelling in darkness.
      9. “What is maximum income of your Dimond in vestige? Income of Dimond of Amway is more than 1 Crore per annum.”
      Income of a Diamond in Amway is just 1-3 lakhs per month.. That too with so much effort from downlines dancing on stages. No one earns 1 Crore per annum in Amway, your system, uplines might have misleaded you.
      Vestige top earner is earning 1.5 crore per month, its per month my friend and not per year..
      10. “How much amount Vestige has distributed to their leaders sofar in India? and how much amount Amway has distributed to their leaders in India?”
      Same irrelevant question, more over all your money from amway goes out of our nation and not to our country. Its a shame you are working for a foreign company and defending it comparing with an Indian company.
      11. “In my view concentrate on your Vestige business instead of comparing your company with Amway or other MLM companies . And do not wastage your energy in comparision with other MLM Company .Finally AMWAY IS best and number 1 DIRECT SELLING COMPANY OF INDIA AND OF GLOBAL.”
      If you have Guts, Just invite people to your meetings, home meetings etc revealing your great company name AMWAY.. Dont invite them saying that you have some great business oppurtunity etc etc.. Amway will very soon close its business in India.. Their products will be sold through some other channels but no one will choose Amway to earn money or attain financial Freedom. Moreover your Amway has already accepted its defeat by going for advertising in media…
      Finally, come out of that cult Ramesh.. the sooner you come out of it, the better it will be for your career.. You will never ever ever ever succeed in Amway and become financially free..

      1. Seenu (Direct Marketing), Your most answers to Ramesh are logical, but your 9 point is controversial. You can’t say vestige top leaders (diamonds) earn 1 crore every month. I took an interview of a vestige DUCD on this site and I knew their monthly income, so please don’t spread false details.

        I appreciate your effort and thank you for visiting TechMistri.com

        1. Hey Hemant,
          Thanks for your Reply.
          Regarding 9th point if you observe clearly, I said “Vestige top earner is earning 1.5 crore per month, its per month my friend and not per year”..
          I have mentioned about the top earner in vestige who is Siddharth Singh.
          I did not mention that all the DUCDs in vestige will earn that amount..
          As you can observe I did not spread any false information… May be we both misunderstood something..
          As you know already if it comes to average earnings of all the DUCDs in vestige, it will be minimum of 5 lakhs per month without any doubt and all of them have attained their financial freedom…

          Thank you so much Hemant.. Your effort is very much appreciated…

      RAMESH JI.
      AAPNE TO DIL SE BATA DIYA….CONGRATS……..3 COMPANY REPLIED AND PROPERLY GUIDED NOT SEND IN SHORT BY NOT
      SHOWN AS CONFUSED FOR NEW MLM

  5. its nothing about overpricing its about the quality of the product and yes, its bit costly than other products but we can use these products and later you’ll get results than you’ll get to know its worth for that product.and the last thing about success if we work hard and smart than 100% sure we will get success but there is concept of cheating here if they want they can get the products no one will force any one. any how you’re comparison gave me a very good clarity thank you so much guys.

    1. Thank You Ankith for visiting. But you can’t force people to buy Mercedes benz on the name of quality whose budget is of honda city. MLM is business of people and most of indian belongs to middle class family. Hope you get the point.

  6. Bro..u have raised the best questions…basically vestige is out of IDSA.. They didn’t even mentioned that point…In my opinion AMWAY is original and remaining all are replicas

    1. Hemant kumawat

      Amway is a founder member of IDSA. There are 450+ direct selling companies operating in the country and not even 10% of them are members of IDSA. So IDSA doesn’t matter..

  7. By the grace of God I have come into the MLM industry and I am fortunate enough to be a part of the Modicare business. I hope many people get in touch with this industry and get to change their lives .The company MODICARE is the best MLM company because according to me , it has the best PLAN,PROFILE,PRODUCT,PRICE. I have achieved 5 trips and my dream house and my dream car from the company and I ll be forever thankful.
