Is Tupperware Worth it?

While doing my last review of Avon’s MLM (multi-level marketing) opportunity, I learned that Tupperware is one of the Top 4 Most Making Money Mlms in the Industry! Which is incredible! I’m not a fan of mlm businesses, but nonetheless, they are legitimate products. So I thought what better way to learn all about this business than to dive in and learn about their products and compensation plan, so that’s what I did. I hope it helps you make a decision on Tupperware’s business opportunity, and if it’s worth joining for you.

The Good & the Bad

The Good:

PRO #1 – Payment plan to join
PRO #2 – Lucrative compensation plan
PRO #3 – Reputable company – Not a scam

women mlmThe Bad:

CON #1 – direct selling
CON #2 – recruiting
CON #3 – expensive products!

Who is Tupperware For?

Tupperware is for anyone who is looking to start a business and with an mlm. You can be a stay at home mom, or just looking for part time work. You can make it your sole source of income, but be aware, you will need to treat it as a job. You can read about my experience with Amway, when I did that. Anyone can succeed within an mlm such as this one, you only need to have the right tools and training, which I’ll touch on briefly below.

Tupperware Tools, Training, & Support

When you join you’ll receive access to some training material online. You will also have a back office to log onto to monitor all of your business transactions and manage your business. You can expect to get most of your training from the person who sponsored you, as well as support. This can be from your sponsor, or persons on your upline. MLMs tend to hold weekly/monthly conference calls and quarterly/annual events so that you can train a little more. These calls and events can help you with sales techniques, marketing, and inspiration.

Can You Really Make Money With Tupperware? – The Compensation Plan

Like other mlms there will be Fast Start Bonuses that you can qualify for within your first 60-90 days. You can win cash prizes or even the grand prize which is an iPad. All you have to do is reach certain requirements to win the prizes.

Through your direct sales you can earn 25-35% retail commission. You will also earn up to 4% commission on your whole team’s sales. Bonuses and leadership commission are paid on commissionable volume which is 75% of the sales. Remember, 25% is going directly to the distributor.

The ranks are as follows:

Star Manager
Executive Manager
Star Director
2 Star Director
3 Star Director
5 Sar Director
Executive Director
Star Executive Director
Presidential Director

compensation planRetail sales commissions are 25%, but you can earn an extra 5% if your volume is more than $1,500, or you can earn an extra 10% if you volume is above $4,000.

You can qualify for the car bonus when you reach Executive Manager. You can qualify for trips once you reach Manager.

There are rank advancement bonuses which you can earn while advancing from Consultant to Director. These bonuses can go up to $1,000.

Once you’re a Director you also qualify for generational bonuses. How does this work? When one of the members on your team reach Director, they will branch out and start to form their own team. You will no longer be able to use their volume for commissions or bonuses, but the company does pay you a separate bonus, up to 10% commission on their whole team’s sales. Tupperware will pay up to 7 Generations.

Director Development Bonus – a one time bonus you can receive as a Director for every time someone on your team reaches Director. You can earn up to a $2,500 bonus per Director, depending on your rank.

Executive Manager bonus – you can earn $150 monthly when you reach Executive Manager.

How Much Does it Cost to Join?

How does it work? You put $39 down by using a credit card, and then pay the balance on your second payment. As a bonus, if you reach $1,000 sales within your first 60 days, the company will make the payment for you. If you have already paid, the company will give you a $60 credit to use towards merchandise or business tools.

Can Tupperware Really Work For You? – My Final Opinion

Tupperware’s track record speaks for itself. It has made such a major impact in the industry, I cannot say it’s a bad company. Many people think mlms are a scam, but they’re not. They’re legitimate businesses. Depending on how you treat it, you can make it a worthwhile opportunitiy, but if you’re not willing to put in the life long effort you’re going to have to hang it up!

It takes dedication to sales training, and marketing. You’ve got to learn how to market your product; offline, and online via a website, email marketing, and ppc (pay per click) advertising. You can build sales funnels with a company like Click Funnels, and generate leads for recruitment with lead generators such as (link). Personally, I’m not into direct sales or recruiting so I’ve chosen a different route. Check out my #1 business to get into here.

  1. HI Jonathan Matos,
    I just visited your site while surfing online and found your review about Tupperware MLM helpful.
    I have always thought that all the MLM’s are scams but from your article and review, I understand that all MLM’s are not scams and you have to treat them and work with them as a full-time job to see the good results.

    • Amit, you found the most important point in the article. You have to treat them as a business, and work them as a full time job to see the good results. Yes, you can do this with any business. Thank you so much for reiterating that! I believe you just need to like the products, so if you find the products like at Tupperware to be very good that you would recommend them to all of your friends. Then this would be a good opportunity for you. 

      You can also learn to sell other plastic containers online. They have affiliate programs like at Amazon, that you can sell any products from them and earn a commission. You have to learn affiliate marketing, but you can earn a lot of money doing this! All you have to do is build a website, and learn seo (search engine optimization). You can get free training here

      Thanks again, 


  2. I have worked with Tupperware for almost 6 years, and have had a very positive experience with them. Yes, it can be a lot of work but like anything it can depend on the individual and what they are willing or able to invest in it. The products might cost a little bit more that you might pay at a retail store, but the quality is definitely there! Many people tell me stories of products they have had for years! One of the best things about Tupperware is their limited lifetime warranty on their products — if something chips, cracks or peels I can usually replace it for a customer for a minimal shipping and handling fee!

    • Wow, I did not know that about the return policy. I think that’s fantastic! It makes a lot of sense that the products would last that long for the price point. Also, the warranty in place.

      It’s interesting do learn that you’ve been with Tupperware for over 6 years. You must have seen the value of the business opportunity. What would be your #1 recommendation to anyone thinking about joining Tupperware?

  3. Tupperware has been around for quite a long time and it seems like a great opportunity, if you’ve got the personality for that type of thing. The organization is well-known for quality products and the bonuses are pretty cool, but like you, I am not into direct sales and recruiting either, so this would not be my cup of tea. I’d prefer to focus my energy earning income doing something that I actually like.
