Buying Orovo Detox and MLM
Orovo Original and Orovo Detox weight loss pills are not cheap - that is, unless you become an associate, which is basically a multi level marketing scheme. If you want to buy Orovo, you're almost forced into becoming a part of the MLM - the regular price is set at $80 per bottle, and associate price is set at $39.99. With prices set as such, anyone who wants to buy Orovo is almost forced to become an associate - unless you're willing to pay twice the price. But there is a catch to become an associate in this MLM - you must meet a monthly minimum purchase amount to remain active to receive the discounted price.
The Orovo MLM is a 6 x 6 matrix where you receive commission up to 6 levels of your downline. As stated on their website:
You must purchase at least 20 PVs per month in order to maintain your active associate status and participate in the income opportunity.
Where PV = product volume, and 1 PV is equal to 1 commissionable dollar. What this means is that you need to purchase at least $20 each month to keep your associate status active in the MLM and receive the discounted price.
