  1. Which is best really depends on what you want to do with your business.
    If you’re a dyed-in-the-wool network marketer, the doTerra compensation plan is probably the best in the industry, as it incentivises leaders to build deep by paying higher commissions at the lower levels where the greater width will be. Put simply, they pay the ‘least on the least’ (the top levels) and the ‘most on the most’ (the bottom levels).
    On the other hand, if all you want to do is share the product with family and friends or retail the products as an affiliate through your online shop rather than build a network of Distributors, the doTerra comp plan does not favour that. With doTerra, the Distributor gets 25% commissions on RETAIL customers which is ongoing. However, when they offer their Customers Wholesale membership for best value they get penalized, as the commissions drop to 20% and only continue at this level for 3 months, after which they are miniscule.
    The Young Living compensation plan is more conventionally in line with the rest of the industry. Commission are highest on your front line and graduate downwards with depth in your downline.
    Hard core network marketers may therefore favour doTerra whereas customer gatherers and small time sharers may be better off with Young Living.
