ACN Compensation Plan.

There are essentially three ways to earn income with ACN.


Personal Residuals:

Personal residual compensation includes the percentage of revenue you receive based on your individual customers you acquire, through their service plans with ACN. ACN pays you anywhere between 2%-8% of your client’s total monthly bills.

For example, if your personal customers are using $1,000 a month in ACN services; you’ll get paid 2% of that $1,000. That would be a residual income of $20 per month through that one customer.

Team Residuals:

The ACN team residual compensation includes the percentage of revenue you receive based on your recruits recruiting their recruits.

This is a 7-level uni plan, meaning that typically your recruits stay on your 1st level, their recruits go on your 2nd level, and so on all the way down to 7 levels. You earn 0.25% on levels 2-5, 1% on level 6 and 6% on level 7.

Customer Acquisition Bonuses:

Customer acquisition bonuses are one-time, up-front bonus monies paid to you for recruiting new customers to ACN. When you help a personal sponsor become a team trainer; you will receive a bonus of $90-$275 depending on your leadership rank. For you to become a team trainer, your sponsor must enroll for $499 and then recruit their first 6-8 customers within an allotted time frame.

How To Become An ACN Independent Business Owner?

To become an independent business owner ( IBO ) with ACN, one must first fill out the ACN individual business owner agreement form. There is an “application fee” of $499 and cannot be submitted without first paying that price. This seems to be a startup fee to become part of the business. Once you become an IBO, you will have access to your website where you can sell their services to potential customers. It is important to note that you are not an employee of ACN, but rather an independent business owner (contractor). You can make your hours and select your means of operation.acnheadquarters.jpg

What We Like About ACN
  • This company has been around since 1993 and has over 1,500 employees worldwide. They are the largest digital sales telecommunications company in the world, and they do business in 20 countries across the globe.
  • ACN is based on services and products that people are already currently using: Internet, television and phone services to mention a few.
  • ACN has a positive BBB rating at the time of this review. Some people rely on a BBB rating to confirm legitimacy. I don’t, but I know it’s something people would appreciate.acnreviewconnect.jpg
 Overall Recommendation- Highly Recommended

ACN is a legitimate company that has been around for nearly 24 years. Unlike most MLMs or direct sales companies, this one has legitimate services and products that people do buy. Earning potential is unlimited and depends on how hard your work at building your business. But like any company, they have their share of complaints.

The majority of complaints appear to come from independent contractors of ACN that were unable to find success so, therefore, complain about the business. This is not a get rich quick scheme, so you do have to invest time and energy into your business to get results.
