Zilis Review – Legit Network Marketing Business Opportunity or Scam?
Welcome to my Zilis Review!
There has been some buzz about this company so I decided to investigate what it was all about.
Some people call this company while others call it a full blown scam, but I am going going to put all the rumors to rest in this post…
Pay close attention to every word on this blog post and read it to the end because I am going to walk you through the company, products and compensation plan so you can make the right decision…
Let’s face it…
You don’t want to get screwed here right?
Let’s dig in shall we!
Zilis Review – The Company
Zilis is the brain child of a husband and wife duo Steven and Angie Thompson who founded the company.
They launched the company mid 2015 and is based out of US state of Texas and has been going well since then.
Just a little bit about the Thompsons from their corporate bio reveals…
After starting their first health and wellness endeavor shortly after college, they have gone on to build three highly successful global enterprises.
To date, the Thompson’s have built teams totaling over 250,000 people in 40 countries throughout the world.
In addition, Steven has served as Director of Marketing and Vice President of Sales for multiple international Direct Selling firms.
Now I know it doesn’t really mention any previous network marketing companies in their bio, but after doing some research I found out Steven Thompson was an affiliate with Cyberwize from 2001 to 2009 and in 2010 it became LiveSmart 360.
For some LiveSmart 360 only survived until 2015 from where Thompson left and did his own thing with Zilis.
Now let’s check out the products next…
Zilis Reviews – The Products
Zilis aligns themselves with Amazon in a way where the company sources third party products and markets them through a non-physical location business model.
This is what Steven Thompson had to say:
After many years developing proprietary products in network marketing I realized we had it backwards. Why not find the best products being made and offer them through our company?
Overall, they have a ton of products and here are some of the categories they sell in:
- Zen (“electromagnetic energy charge” mist nutrition)
- Vera Life (liquid nutrients)
- Common Sense (dietary and nutrition supplements)
- 7 Help CBD Oil
- Clean Machine (plant-based sports supplements)
- Wright Family Organic Skin Care
- Elementa Essential Oils
- Safe4U Cleaning
- Aleris Skin Care & Cosmetics
- Cutting Edge Health & Wellness
- Ultimate Life Styles Travel (discount travel services)
If I actually listed all the products, it would be a 10,000 word blog post and I know you don’ thave time for that lol.
Let’s take a look at the compensation plan next…

Retail Income Commissions
You can get paid when you sell products to retail customer which is the difference between the wholesale price and retail price.
You keep the difference…
Business Commission Qualification
To be qualify to earn commissions, you must be an active affiliate that is either on a 60 PV monthly autoship or generate 90 PV per month by selling the products.
PV means personal volume and is the sales volume generated by retail sales or you buying the products yourself.
Direct Sponsorship Commissions
When you sponsor a new member that buys a starter pack, you can earn commissions on it:
- Sponsor a Bronze affiliate and earn $20
- Sponsor a Silver affiliate and earn $60
- Sponsor a Gold affiliate and earn $130
Area Ambassador, Regional Ambassador and National Ambassador ranked members can earn something called a “Infinity Fast Start” bonus on top of sponsoring new members that buy a starer pack.
To qualify for this Infinity Fast Start Bonus, you must be generate at least 60 PV per month:
- Bronze Starter Pack – $8 paid to Area Ambassadors, $7 to Regional Ambassadors and $6 to National Ambassadors
- Silver Starter Pack – $35 paid to Area Ambassadors, $25 to Regional Ambassadors and $15 to National Ambassadors
- National Starter Pack – $60 paid to Area Ambassadors, $50 to Regional Ambassadors and $40 to National Ambassadors
Residual Income Commissions
All residual income commissions are paid out through a binary compensation plan structure.
This just means you have two legs, left and a right and can be filled by you, your upline and your downline members.
Each time you generate 300 GV on both legs, you can earn a 10% commission and any left over volume gets rolled over to the next pay period.
You can increase binary commissions by signing up with either the Silver or Gold Starter package:
- Silver Starter Package affiliates earn a 15% binary commission
- Gold Starter Package affiliates earn a 20% binary commission
All of the binary commissions are capped weekly and the cap will depend on your rank:
- Associate Ambassador – $250
- Community Ambassador – $500
- City Ambassador – $750
- Area Ambassador – $1000
- Regional Ambassador -$2500
- National Ambassador – $5000
- Presidential Ambassador – $10,000
Now, unlike other network marketing companies, Zilis has a condition about their left over volume:
- Be MLM commission qualified and have one personally recruited MLM commission qualified affiliate in both binary team sides = up to $100,000 in unmatched volume carried over
- Generate 180 PV a month or have a 120 PV monthly autoship order and maintain at least one personally recruited MLM commission qualified affiliate in both binary team sides = $up to $250,000 in unmatched volume carried over
- Generate 300 PV a month or have a 200 PV monthly autoship order and maintain at least one personally recruited MLM commission qualified affiliate in both binary team sides = up to $1,000,000 in unmatched volume carried over
All of these commissions are paid when someone buys a starter pack.
Regular Residual Commissions
All non start pack commissions are paid through a unilevel compensation plan structure and is capped at 6 levels on the sales volume generated by affiliates excluding the starter pack volume.
The amount of levels you get paid on will depend on your affiliate rank:
- Associate Ambassador and Community Ambassador – 5% on levels 1 and 2
- City Ambassador – 5% on levels 1 to 3
- Area Ambassador – 5% on levels 1 to 3 and 4% on level 4
- Regional Ambassador – 5% on levels 1 to 3, 4% on level 4 and 3% on level 5
- National Ambassador – 5% on levels 1 to 3, 4% on level 4, 3% on level 5 and 2% on level 6
Area Ambassadors and higher ranked members can earn a Infinity Residual Bonus on the unilevel with no level caps:
- Area Ambassadors earn a 4% Infinity Residual Bonus
- Regional Ambassadors earn a 7% Infinity Residual Bonus
- National Ambassadors earn a 9% Infinity Residual Bonus
On top of that, you can earn a matching bonus on your personally sponsored members:
- Area Ambassadors earn a 10% Infinity Matching Bonus

- Regional Ambassadors receive up to $500

This must be put towards health insurance and you need prove that you are buying it…

- Area Ambassadors receive $400
- Regional Ambassadors receive $500

Cost To Join Zilis
The basic Zilis membership is $99 one-time…
On top of that, there is an affiliate back office to help Zilis members with managing large organizations for another $29 per month.
Here are the three optional Starter Packs mentioned before:
- Bronze – $199
- Silver – $599
- Gold – $1299
The only difference between the packages is the amount of product and income potential in the compensation plan.
The moment you have been waiting for in this Zilis review…
Verdict On Zilis
Overall, Zilis isn’t a scam or anything, but it has to watch out for too much focus on the recruitment side.
For example, if Zilis got investigated by the FTC as it stands, it probably won’t get out alive…
The whole “pay more to earn more” is actually not legit anymore when it comes to MLM product packs.
For example, with Bronze start pack you can earn 10% in the dual team where with Silver you can earn 15% in the dual team.
Also, having an autoship to qualify for commissions for an affiliate isn’t compliant either…
Other than the compensation plan part, the actual product side of Zilis looks legit and they need to just focus more on that.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my Zilis review and if you have any questions, leave them in the comments below…
My personal recommendation…
I have been in the network marketing field for a few years and have made well over 7 figure in this industry so I know what to look for when you join a company…
Anyway, after reviewing hundreds of companies and systems out there…
It’s the only system out there where you will learn step by step on how to build a business online with the right training’s, tools and the right mentorship
