The Emza Gold Compensation Plan
The Emza Gold compensation plan pays affiliates when they sell DailyGold to retail customers.
Residual commissions are paid out via a 3×8 matrix, with additional performance-based bonuses also available.
In order to qualify for commissions an Emza Gold affiliate must sell at least one bottle of DailyGold to a retail customer each month.
Emza Gold Affiliate Ranks
There are four affiliate ranks within the Emza Gold compensation plan.
Along with their respective qualification criteria, they are as follows:
- Affiliate – sign up as an Emza Gold affiliate
- Executive Director – maintain ten active retail customers
- Senior Executive – recruit at least three affiliates who each have an Executive Director ranked affiliate in their downline
- Trail Blazer – have a downline of thirty affiliates who each have at least five active retail customers (no more than 15 affiliates from any one recruitment leg)
- National Director – generate and maintain at least 15 active retail customers, have a downline of at least 800 affiliates and their active retail customers (no more than 400 from any one recruitment leg)
An active retail customer is a non-affiliate customer who purchases at least one bottle of DailyGold each month.
Emza Gold affiliates earn $2 per bottle of DailyGold they sell to retail customers.
Residual commissions in Emza Gold are paid out via a 3×8 matrix.
A 3×8 matrix places an affiliate at the top of the matrix, with three positions directly under them:
These three positions form the first level of the matrix, with the second level generated by splitting each of the three positions into another three positions each (9 positions).
The third level of the matrix is generated by splitting each level 2 position into another three positions each again (27 positions).
Subsequent levels of the matrix are generated in the same manner, with a complete 3×8 matrix housing 9840 positions.
Positions in the matrix are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of new affiliates.
A $2 residual commission is paid out when recruited affiliates in a matrix purchase a bottle of Daily Gold.
Fast Start Bonus
When an Emza Gold affiliate acquires five active retail customers, they receive a $20 Fast Start Bonus.
If they acquire these customers within 15 days of signing up as an Emza affiliate, a $100 bonus is paid to the affiliate and the affiliate who recruited them.
Rank Achievement Bonus
Emza Gold reward affiliates with the following Rank Achievement Bonuses:
- Senior Executive – 3 day 2 night weekend getaway vacation for two (incl $100 spending money) and a $1000 cash bonus

- the Executive Director Pool is made up of $5 of every bottle of DailyGold sold company-wide
- the National Director Pool is made up of $3 of every bottle of DailyGold sold company-wide
As per their respective affiliate rank, Each month Executive Director and National Director ranked affiliates receive an equal share in one of the pools.
Joining Emza Gold
Affiliate membership with Emza Gold is free.
To what extent Emza Gold’s DailyGold product is unique isn’t really clear. It’s manufactured by a third-party with a full ingredient list provided on the Emza Gold website.
The multi-vitamin industry is huge, so I’d definitely recommend comparing DailyGold to what’s available locally before committing yourself.
On the compensation plan side of things, Emza Gold is pretty well-balanced.
Retail requirements are great to see, effectively prohibiting chain recruitment despite it costing nothing to sign up as a Emza Gold affiliate.
The $2 commission per bottle of Emza Gold sold however is a bit thin, considering the product retails for $53.99. I think this could be raised somewhat, perhaps at the expense of the bonus pools. Swap $2 into one of the pools and pay $5 or more per bottle sold.
That said even with the paltry commission, if you don’t have retail customers in Emza Gold you’re not getting paid.
As a business opportunity though the low commission rate is certainly unattractive. I think this might harm the opportunity over time, as $2 is almost hardly worth putting in effort to market the product.
This will affect payouts through the matrix and affiliate ranks, which both rely on recruited affiliates to obtain retail customers.
On one hand retail qualifiers are great to see, however Emza Gold ultimately let themselves down with tiny retail commission rates.
There’s potential here assuming the product is competitive in the multi-vitamin niche, but the shortcomings of the Emza Gold compensation plan limit the opportunity as a whole.
