But Mary Kay isn’t a pyramid scheme!!! A woman is beside herself because she mentioned Mary Kay in a group and got a negative reaction. There were a bunch of supportive comments, but the funniest one was that “pyramid schemes take from the bottom people to pay the top people” and Mary Kay isn’t like that!
She says they don’t take from your team member’s commissions to pay you. No, they just take money directly from those team members and use it to pay you. The upline doesn’t get paid if the downline doesn’t order and give money to Mary Kay Inc. MK then takes that money and distributes to the upline.
But you can “contact corporate to get more info.” LOL. Here’s what they will tell you.
