Whatever the reason, research is key for many reasons and you are certainly in the right place which I hope to prove in the next few minutes.

What is Rain International about and who is the Founder?
Rain International LLC is an MLM in the Health and Wellness industry developing products based around the seed industry to help rejuvenate the body in a natural way.
They claim to be one of the top companies in the seed nutritional field, with only natural nutrients found in their products.
The business according to the website was founded by Byron Belka in 2011 in Utah, US, although my research tells us that Rain International LLC was already founded before Byron Belka came onto the scene.
That said, Mr Belka does have a wealth of experience in network marketing at all levels and has been involved with Nu Skin Enterprises and eXfuze, both MLMs in the health and beauty industry.
It is reported that whilst at Nu Skin as a distributor he was one of the top 20 earners back in 2003.
Check out this short promotional video.
Giving to worthy causes is always a great thing in my book.
Everybody who enrols in the business opportunity has a tree planted with over 300,000 trees planted so far.
Seeds for change foundation was set up to help women in Uganda, which allows them to create their own jewellery sets which help to support poverty-stricken areas that they live in and give them a sense of worth.
Is Rain International a Pyramid Scheme?
Considered to be a very popular search criterion when people are researching things especially multi-level-marketing businesses.
So what is a pyramid scheme?
In short, a business has to have a valid product(s) or services that have an intrinsic value otherwise quite simply there isn’t a business.
If you “The Sponsor” is getting paid merely on recruiting others into your team, which is known as a “Down-line” then without a product or service that would be deemed a pyramid scheme.
In this case, Rain International is not a pyramid scheme as you do not need to recruit others to earn money and the products do appear to be well received amongst the people who are using them.
Let’s look at the Rain International Product Range
Rain International products are all based around seeds with “Black Cumin” used as their base seed.
Nature started from seed, which is the philosophy behind all this, and with no chemicals used means that the products come enriched with the nutrition that comes from the seeds.
As you will notice Rain International LLC doesn’t have many products at their disposal meaning that the products they do have should be top quality.
Rain International’s flagship product
The product that started it all off.
In a form that is drinkable, which supports healthy joints, relieves any minor muscle pain after any exercise and helps to maintain a healthy immune system.

Rain International Business Opportunity – What you need to know
Typically with any MLM business opportunity, it’s all about finding the right sponsor and if you don’t know one, at Rain International, one will be appointed.
This is very important if you are new to this type of business.
Most people who join an MLM are new to the “making money online” niche so finding the right sponsor is extremely important.
You are looking for a sponsor who is experienced in network marketing who is prepared to pass on their knowledge to you.
Otherwise, you will be sat on your own without any clue what to do and it won’t take you long before you leave.
Having said that…

How to Make Money with Rain International
There are 3 basic steps to earning money.
- Purchase the stock yourself @ discount and sell it to family and friends, that way you could test out the products first to see if they are any good.
- Find your customers and sell to them.
- Recruit others into your team, train them and make commissions on their sales.
Selling to anybody who hasn’t a clue about the products is termed as “Cold-Calling”, and you should know this is difficult to do.
Great at recruiting is where you have to be if you want to give yourself the best chance of succeeding.
Hopefully, you will have found the right sponsor who can teach you all this.
Here you can check out the Rain International Compensation Plan for yourself
Compensation plans can and usually are complex in nature, maybe to hide the fact that they get you to think you are getting a better deal than what you actually are.
I am therefore not going to get into the compensation plan because it will take far too long.
Rain Internationals compensation plan is typical of this very fact so if you love deciphering compensation plans and you have a spare hour or two.
Then maybe you’d like to read this document, or make yourself a coffee and listen to a Rain International partner describing it in more detail.
Are Rain International Distributors actually making money?
This is a bit of a closed shop when trying to find out if distributors are actually making any money, after all, wouldn’t you want to know before contemplating joining?
That being said, with all the income disclosures I have seen I’ve yet to find one that reads well.
They all have something in common, and that is, they are usually a bad and depressing read.
Despite Rain International being around since 2011, they don’t have anything that resembles an income disclosure and that should be a major red flag.
A few facts with MLMs that you should be aware of…
- The top 1% is usually where the big money is earned. As high as maybe .11%.
- That leaves 99% that don’t earn enough to replace a full-time job.
- Between 50% and 65% leave within the first 12 months with many in debt.
- Around 75% say they will never join an MLM again.
MLMs are notoriously difficult to succeed in and designed in such a way that you are probably going to fail miserably.
What others say about Rain International
We are now at the point where we try and dig out a few reviews to give you both sides, but you should take these with a pinch of salt as they can’t be verified.
You can check out a mix of reviews on Amazon for their flagship product, the Rain Soul supplement here.
If you have 30 minutes to spare I would take a look at this video. Mind you if you are still contemplating joining an MLM then maybe not such a wise thing to do.
What we liked about Rain International
Unfortunately, I didn’t get any real good vibes for this company and did struggle to find any real positive things to say.
- Unique products
- Approved by the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices)
- This is what we found in Google trends
What we don’t like about Rain International
Unfortunately, we found more than enough issues that we have listed below.
- Smear campaign and racism claims
With a few other claims that you can read about here.
- Expensive products
At the end of the day would you purchase your vitamins from a business that you didn’t know or go to a reputable supplier?
Rain Bend, which is for joints and priced @ $99 which includes Glucosamine Sulphate and is the main vitamin for joints.
For around $24 with postage to the US, you can get almost a years supply and these do work as I have tried them in the past.
- Not accredited with the Better Business Bureau
The BBB is the place to go for complaints as this is where the company has to respond and take action.
- Not a member of the Direct Selling Association
Another place to check when researching a direct selling business is because the DSA are there to help people like you and me and do investigate how someone is running their business.
- Autoship problems
I noticed a number of complaints where people were set up for the auto-ship facility even though they hadn’t selected this option when they ordered the products.
- You can find their products on Amazon
This I don’t like, because it just goes to show that Rain International isn’t taking into consideration their own distributors. As if it wasn’t hard enough to make sales!
Is Rain International a SCAM?
Rain International LLC is a legitimate multi-level marketing company although they have a few issues which I have discussed.
They were complaints about some of their products when tested, were found to have no nutrients present at all.
The products have not been approved by the FDA so I guess it’s just a matter of time before the FDA will be questioning the product claims.
Some claims from customers and members about the fact that they had been set up for the “auto-ship” process when they made an order.
That means you would receive the same product order monthly without you needing to do anything.
Is Rain International a Worthy Business to get involved with?
We are at a crossroads where we have to decide whether this Rain International Review has given you enough information for you to make a decision whether to try their products or do both.
If you are in a place where you still think the products might be legit, what we would suggest is to try the products first and do not commit beyond that.
MLMs, as I have said are extremely difficult to succeed in, I should know as I have tried them myself, lost money and wasted a couple of years.
Through research into other opportunities, I found that affiliate marketing was a better choice, I just had to find the right training.
- No recruiting
- No pressure from your sponsor to meet targets
- No purchasing of stocks
- No going to events, which will be expected if you want to advance
- No selling to family and friends
- No restriction on which products you can sell
- No marketing costs because you will be learning SEO
- You’ll have a website that will run on autopilot 24/7/365
- You’ll have a business that you can pass down to your children
- Run this business anywhere you like
So if you are still looking for a business opportunity then may I suggest affiliate marketing, which means you are in control and not somebody else.

4 thoughts on “Rain International Review – Great MLM or a Big WASHOUT?”
I’ve learned over time to trust your honest reviews and would generally only ever make a purchase or ebe swayed towards a company based on your recommendation.
However, even before I got to how you felt about the company I was already having a lot of “bad vibes” (although they were based on your review up until that point).
I feel very much the same as you about Rain International – something just doesn’t sit right with me.
There seems to be a lot of controversy surrounding the company and then when you add to that the negative factors that you have mentioned, well it just doesn’t feel like a viable business proposition.
Plus, I know that the reviews you have provided are once again other people’s opinions, but just reading about the “miracle cure” offered by certain products for potentially life-threatening illnesses being marketed to people in the Philippines – well, I just didn’t like reading that at all.
And don’t even get me started on the price of some of these products – Wow.
Nope, I’m definitely “out”.
Hey Partha, once again thank you for reading and commenting on this Rain International MLM review.
Glad that you enjoyed this review and thank you for the great comment
Great review here!
I must agree with you that it’s so difficult to succeed in network marketing. I’ve tried it too and I didn’t like the process.
I’m just wondering how these companies survive if there are so few people who manage to make money with them?
Hey Natalie, thank you for stopping by and commenting on this Rain International review.
A great question, but its always the ones at the bottom of the pile/pyramid that keeps propping up the business.
The ones at the very top have teams with literally thousands in their downline and a small % is all it takes.
Thank you for your support.
