YOR Health has been a proud member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA) in the United States for over four years. Now, YOR Health is excited to announce its membership in the Direct Selling Association of Australia (DSAA) which was formed almost half a century ago, when person-to-person selling was still in its infancy. Today, the DSAA strives to uphold the highest code of ethics, maintain fair business practices and to protect and serve the interests of members and the Promoters they represent.
Q: What exactly is direct selling?
YOR Health: “Direct Selling” is the sale of a product or service, person-to-person, away from a retail store. This distribution is done by Promoters, usually in a home or workplace, through such methods as party plan, door-to-door or network marketing. More than 90 million people worldwide are involved in direct selling.
Q: That’s an impressive number. What is currently the largest direct selling market?
YOR Health: The two largest direct selling markets are the United States and China. Worldwide direct sales are estimated at more than $191 billion a year.
Q: How large is the direct selling market in Australia?
YOR Health: The direct selling market is a rapidly growing business in Australia. Currently, over 500,000 people are involved in the industry and salespeople are making an estimated two million visits each month to shoppers. YOR Health is proud to be a member alongside many other great companies.
Q: What are the benefits of shopping with a direct selling company, like YOR Health?

Q: Are there any advantages to joining a company that belongs to the Direct Selling Association?
YOR Health: We think so! A company that belongs to the DSA has pledged to abide by and uphold the DSAA Code of Practice which is designed to protect both customers and those who sell the products.
Q: Who can become a member of the DSAA?
YOR Health: Any business can apply to join the DSAA, as long as they are prepared to follow the Code of Practice. However, DSAA membership is not automatic. Applicants and their businesses are evaluated against a range of criteria, aimed at promoting professionalism and buyer protection. This way, customers know that any business that is a member of the DSAA is ethical and professional.
Q: What does becoming a member of the DSAA mean for YOR Health?
YOR Health: Receiving the DSAA’s seal of approval is a great compliment and a remarkable milestone for YOR Health and for our international expansion efforts. We believe further international achievements are just around the corner, as we continue to launch more YOR Health products worldwide.
