Origami Owl Review
What is Origami Owl?
Origami Owl is a multi-level marketing company that sells jewelry. Bella Weems at the age of 14 started selling lockets to friends and family after school. Slowly and steadily the business grew and Bella Weems became the founder of Origami Owl. They claim that they have thousands of Independent Designers across the U.S. and Canada. They sell jewelry in the categories of charms, living lockets, chains, bracelets, personalize and accessorize. You can know more about the products through the official website of the company.
In this review, I will take a closer look at this company and try to determine whether this is a scam or not. I do not work for this company and this review is completely unbiased. I suggest that you read the entire review before joining this company.
How does the Origami Owl business work?
Origami Owl is a multi-level marketing company and you can earn from it using a number of ways just like any other multi-level marketing company. Your earnings will obviously increase when you advance in rank. Following are the ways that you can use to earn money from this company.
Retail Sales: You can purchase jewelry as an Independent Designer and earn 20-40% commissions on it by selling it at the retail price. The percentage of commission that you can earn depends on the jewelry that you order from the company. Once you qualify for Leading Designer or above positions, then you can earn 30-50% retail sales commission. The percentage of commission on retail sales offered by the company is not good for all products.
Team Sales: Origami Owl allows you to earn money from your team sales. If you succeed in reaching higher ranks, then you can earn more money from your team sales and earn money from deeper levels.
Others: There are obviously other ways to earn money from the career plan of Origami Owl. You can earn advancement management bonus, advancement bonus and much more from the career plan of Origami Owl.
You must focus on remaining active if you want to benefit from the career plan and you need at least 99PV each month to remain active. The inactive Designer can also earn money, but he/she will only earn 15% commission on any orders submitted on his/her personal web page. The inactive Designer gets a 15% discount on jewelry purchased through his/her back office. I have no serious issues with the career plan of Origami Owl, but I am not sure about your earnings.

How much can I earn?
I could not find any latest information about the earnings of the Independent Designers who work for this company. The company has no obligation to disclose the earnings and I will have to base this part on my personal expectations from this company.
The earnings will depend on you, but even if you do well there is no guarantee of making a huge income. I did some research and found that the products of the company are not liked by everyone and there are some complaints against the company. The products will be hard to sell after the initial months because you will run out of friends and family members. It is not easy to find and convince strangers to buy the products. You can try to sell the products online, but there are many people who are trying to do the same. You will face serious competition both online and offline. You can advance in ranks after working hard, but there is a risk of falling down. The career plan is good, but most people will still fail in this multi-level marketing company. It is almost impossible for the average person to reach the top and only the top rank holders make a huge amount of money.
After considering everything, I think that most people may earn a few hundred dollars per month if they work hard. There will be some people who will earn thousands of dollars per month, but they will be rare. Most people will eventually fail and quit this business.
Are there any complaints?
Yes, I have listed some of the complaints below.
It is hard to make a profit.
The products are of poor quality and there are problems in replacing them.
There is no job security.
Origami Owl is not a scam. I am not going to recommend joining this company because of some strong reasons. The expected earnings are low and most people fail in this business. There are some complaints against the quality of the products and the products may be hard to sell. There are better options than this one. I leave the final decision in your hands. Good luck and choose wisely.
