Rules of ConduCt

Why advertisements are prohibited via
mass communication channels?
The prohibition is essential for the following reasons:

Distributors and upholds fair trade in the business.
c) Advertisements may reach the homes of Amway Distributors of
another Line of Sponsorship (LOS) or prospects/customers of other

LOS, pinching customers, and blind prospecting.
These actions could result in the supply of products to another LOS,
a violation of Rule B-1, which could carry serious consequences for the
Distributor who violates this rule.

whether in graphic, printed or audible form, including mass mailing,
