In order to join Herbalife (both as a distributor or preferred customer) it is mandatory to be sponsored by an existing member. During the signup process you will be asked to provide your sponsor ID and first 3 letters of his name. Having a good sponsor is very important as he or she will be the person that will help you with the products you will need to achieve your goals (if you join as a preferred member) or to start your Herbalife business if you want to become a distributor and resell the products. From your myHerbalife account you will have direct access to your sponsor contact details and you can get in touch with him/her for any question or help you may need.
For those reasons, it is preferable to have an experimented and available sponsor that can and want to help you to achieve your goals. You sponsor can make the difference from being successful or not in reaching your goals. If you want me to be your sponsor, please contact me and I will do my best to help you with anything you need.
Do my Herbalife sponsor need to be from the same country?
No, any existing distributor can sponsor you regardless the country he/she is from.
Can a preferred member sponsor me?
No, only distributors are able to sponsor new members.
Can I change my sponsor?
Usually not but in same special situations (like making an error when signing up) you can contact Herbalife explaining the situation and they may approve the change.
