I re-looked at the comp plan and you're right - there's a cap of $100k/month. But, it's only on the Green compensation plan - there's no mention of this cap applying to anything else. Bob would still earn massive dough off the second part of the silver plan - which is comprised of earning off everyone who signed up after you.
Once you hit that goal there really is no reason to continue recruiting. The example the company uses is 3 people total recruited. If you recruit 3 people, whom recruit 3 each, whom them recruit 3 etc etc their estimate is you hit $100k commision in 16 months, well before you run out of tickets.
Except the problem lies in the unused tickets. When the 24th of 17th month comes along and you didn't use that 17th ticket then they give it away in the gold rush and all you get is $100 for a commission check that month. Witness:

“The Gold Rush”
- Happens on the 24th of each month
- All unused Green Tickets are made available for you to ‘grab’
- These are classified as ‘Gold Tickets’
- Bonus is equally split with the original Green Ticket holder, up to the first $200 (e.g. $100/$100)
- You receive all of the remaining bonuses beyond
I guarantee you that if my handsomely valued ticket goes up, someone's going to snatch it and they get $99,900 of my money - leaving me with a measly $100.
The company has been averaging about 30% growth per month so far, not an exponential break like most MLMs.
Well, I wouldn't say any MLM actually grows exponentially. I mean, they'd all love to, but they don't. One24 does at least try to limit growth, but it's really not much of a limit. What if everyone recruited really did recruit one person every month? They'd exceed the world's population inside a year.
If you dont use your ticket and it doesnt get used in the gold rush it recycles so you dont lose it altogether. Ive only used 1 ticket and still have 23 waiting to be used when active.
Wait, it didn't get snapped up in the gold rush? Part of me says this is not a good sign of health for the company. Let me explain the depth of my brain puddle. There are more unused tickets than there are people interested in having them. But why? Is it because people signed up and aren't doing anything except auto-shipping and accruing tickets? Is it because people aren't able to recruit even one person a month? Do all the high value tickets go first leaving only those which would net the ticket grabber crap commission?
If it's a yes on that last one, you can only trust that your tickets would recycle until your commission starts climbing to a more attractive value.
Now there is a separate cap for gold tickets at $100k/ month so if you take gold tickets during the gold rush you split the commision and bonuses with the person whos ticket you took.
I don't see that in the compensation plan. The only cap they mention is on the Greens. Do they list that somewhere on the site?
If your a superstar and want to recruits 100s per month you can. You want to dabble and go for the one per month you can.
Not arguing that. Only want to point out that the bare minimum is one per month or you lose any commission over $100. Which would totally suck if you're focusing on pushing product rather than pushing membership.
Of course if you want to go hard core, when you get down to your 10th or so tier, place your wive or husband. Then you can start the cycle all over again.
Actually, some MLMs prohibit recruiting someone in the same household. I'm looking now. OH MY GOD IS THE SITE SLOW. I mean, yeah, my laptop is eight years old but for crying out loud everything else is loading fine. Wait, it's back. One24 doesn't prohibit recruiting a husband or wife. Ha. Corps, partnerships and trusts can become PCs, too. Why, if I were a sort with money to waste and the maturity of a three-year-old, I'd totally register a bunch of corporations, have them all sign up under each other, and just do the autoship just to see how long it takes one24 to figure out that they're being scammed. Nah, too much work. Also, it wouldn't really help the economy. Maybe I'd compile a list of people who'd like to earn $100 per month (to cover the autoship, the S&H, and a little something for their time to add the new recruit) and I'd make the pyramidingest pyramid to end all pyramids and everyone would be happy because they wouldn't be spending anything out of pocket, they could keep whatever commission they have coming to them and I would be handing them all their recruits.
I would be their god. And they would worship me.
