Party Plan

Party plan companies used to be both a type of selling and accompanying single layer of compensation. Today, most party plan companies have a multilevel compensation. The "party" allows for a hostess to invite friends and receive product deals in return for inviting friends and family as they focus on product first and recruiting second. They have a 'bonus' type that is paid to the hostess or a key customer. It is common for a party plan company to have additional rules for hostess gifts or bonuses.
