The Direct Selling Association (DSA) is the national trade association for companies that offer entrepreneurial opportunities to independent sellers to market and sell products and services, typically outside of a fixed retail establishment. More than 20 million Americans are involved in direct selling in every state, congressional district and community in the United States. In 2015, direct selling generated more than $36 billion in retail sales.
DSA Members are direct selling companies that have completed the application process and recommit annually to our Code of Ethics. Members receive full access to our slate of benefits and are given unique opportunities to be leaders in the industry. Yearly, 20% of the membership is subject to our Random Review process to verify their continued compliance with the Code of Ethics.
Pending Applicants are companies that have submitted an application for DSA membership. As part of a Pending Applicant company, executives will receive all the benefits of DSA membership but have not been granted official membership in the Association. Once a company successfully completes the membership process, DSA membership status is granted.
