Scammer: 0daybux.com - Matteo Melandri - contradicts himself

by Rudolf Faix 27. October 2015 07:11

Alexa global ranking of 0daybux.comThe scammer Matteo Melandri invests a lot into the Clixsense program to show some traffic to his scammer site 0daybux.com. It seems that he believes that members of paid to click programs are so stupid and believe into his unbelievable promotions.

The only purpose of paid to click sites is only to get traffic for showing at the Alexa global ranking and similar sites that the site gets visited and is not a big secret in the world wide web. The result of such a paid to click program gets shown on the screen shot at the right site. To see the full details simple visit the Alexa site.

The offer is for free members:

Earn 0.10€ per click
Earn 0.05€ per referral's click
Instant payout
0€ to cashout
Many advertisement
And much more...

For paid members is it even more unbelievable:

Earn 0.25€ per click
Earn 0.20€ per referral's click
Instant payout
0€ to cashout
Many advertisement
And much more...

Normally is a payout for visting sites between US$ 0.001 and US$ 0.01. Not one advertising company will pay at least € 0.45 per visitor (earnings for paid members € 0.25 + € 0.20 for the upline). That is a dream of the paid to click providers, but it will never come true. If you take a look inside the program of Clixsense or Trafficmonsoon then you see that there is not one real company advertising their products. They are promoting themselves and each others with the paid clicks.

Anyway, the contradiction from the scammer 0daybux.com - Matteo Melandri gets already found at the homepage of 0daybux.com. It seems that the words "0€ to cashout" are the reality from the offer if we take a look at the homepage and the FAQ's.

At www.0daybux.com/pages/clickads is written that you don't get paid as a free member if you are not upgrading your membership:

How I get instant cash?
For cashout the earnings please upgrade your account. Ascertain that your earnings € are more than the upgrade price. For example if you earned 20€ you can upgrade your account to Ultimate membership so you're sure that you can receive the money for upgrade instantly after the purchase.

With other words is the promotion "0€ to cashout" for free members true. They are getting exactly € 0.00 for clicking on the advertisements. The only problem is that the paid members have the same description in the offer. So they are getting nothing too. For what should someone upgrade in this case? Only for supporting a scammer? As you don't get something for it makes a free membership or a paid membership not any sense,

We'll find some more contradictions at the FAQ page http://www.0daybux.com/pages/contact - link removed as it already returns error 404 - not found Jan. 18, 2017):

What is the minimum payout?
Zero. Payout is instantly and you can request it when you want.

Click at least 50 advertisement (for free members)
Become a upgraded member or add funds

Here already we see that free members don't get paid and the promotion is nothing else than a bad joke. As we see in the next point of the facts is there no way that free members are getting paid. So free members have only the possibility to work for nothing. That is nothing else than a big deception. Probably the scammer is hoping that someone still pays for him for the fraud!

Why my payout request is refused?
If you receive this error: "Based on your membership and investment(s), the payout maximum for your account is €0.00." is because you don't have upgraded membership or added funds. Please upgrade your account or add funds for request the first cashout.

In the sentence above is already the payout maximum declared as € 0.00! As the site is hosted in the Netherlands and registered in Italy and both countries are members of the European Union is the site already breaking the consumer protection law of the European Union because the free membership is already a misleading offer.

With other words the "free members" have no minimum payout but a maximum payout of ZERO Euro.

The next point in the FAQ's shows the plain scam. You have to buy your work. Even this point is against the European consumer protection law because you have to pay first for getting your earnings:

Can I upgrade my account or add funds with Account Balance?
Is not possible upgrade your account or add funds with Account balance for now. You can use PayPal, EgoPay, OKPay and Bitcoin.

Sure, in a scam you cannot upgrade your membership with the funds of your account. In this case the scammer would not get some money!

One point of the European Data protection law is that the consumer has the right to get his data deleted as soon as he requests it. It does not make any difference if the consumer is a free or a paid member of a service. The provider of the service has to delete the data and to confirm the deletion of the data on the request of the consumer.

Can I delete my account?
Only upgraded members can delete their account. Upgrade your account and contact the support if you want to delete it.

My opinion about the site 0daybux.com is that Matteo Melandri likes to build up a legal scamming site. The problem is only that this is not possible without breaking the consumer protection law.

Suspicious Sites

Survey site: MarketAgent.com - legal but in truth a waste of time to promote their services

by Rudolf Faix 4. August 2015 06:52

MarketagentMarketAgent is an official company with the location in Austria, Germany, Slovenia and Switzerland. That alone does not make them trustful. It shows only in which market they are active and which law they have to respect and where they are responsible in front of the law court.

If you are taking a look at their locations then you'll see that the English speaking market is not really their market. Austria, Germany and their location in Switzerland is German speaking. So it does not really make any sense to promote their services if you read their conditions at their website:

Registration as a survey participant: 150 Points

In principle, the invitation to participate in surveys is done by random selection. Which means, that our system uses randomly our address pool and selects the number of participants automatically - this is methodologically necessary. Often, participants must also meet certain characteristics (e.g.: male and living in Berlin or Vienna). Because of this, there can be greater distances between the surveys from time to time and then it can go back quite quickly.

Friend invited by the survey participant : 100 Points
You will receive the points for recommending new member only, when the referred person has completed his/her first survey.

Updating your personal information (1x per year): 50 Points
Please note that the points for updating your personal information will only be credited, if we have asked you to do so via email.

Participation in the online survey: 20 - 250 points

Conversion: 1.2 dollar = 120 cents = 100 bonus points

Bonus points will be awarded to your account immediately after completing each survey. Anytime you can convert Exchange Area the survey points into cash or rather products or services of our cooperation partners. Each time after you collect 200 number of points you can exchange them.

Bank transfer, Paypal, Skrill

From the above statements is ony "Conversion: 1.2 dollar = 120 cents = 100 bonus points" against the European Consumer law, because the U.S. members are getting a better conversation as the European members - actually is € 1.00 ~ US$ 1.09829.

In any case are their conditions only for their own benefit. If you invite someone to their system, then you'll get only paid if he is usefull for them. As you don't know it in front which kind of people they are searching is it nothing else than mass collection of data.

The result of this system can get seen in the comments from Web Of Trust. There has written Rayven_redeye on 04/21/2011 (translated to English):

A little extra income, as I said, you can do so about 30 € per year, to be made depending on the amount of surveys.
You get the surveys sent by mail, if you do not want to participate in the survey, the mail can get ignored because there is no "minimum" that must be met. The transfer works without problems, however, can take up to 3 weeks.

The user azereus has written on 03/28/2011 at WOT (translated to English):

you get around 1x survey per month sent. if make the survey until the end you get up to 2.5 €. adds up to € 30 / year. the money can be transferred on their own account.
Yes it works !!

The user ZLazarow has commented on 04/16/2012 at WOT:

I have completed few surveys and get 600 points(6€), at ask to payout to my paypal acount, onthe web page shows transfer succesful, but money I never get to my Paypal account, I wrote many times to marketagent.com, but not answered to any my mail sent...

I thik this is SCAM

Summary: If we take a look at the above comments then we see that they have not enough surveys that their members can get a higher income. I received never an invitation for a survey from them. It did not make any difference if I have been living in Vienna or at country side near to Vienna and I have been every time a typical consumer (living in a family with kids).

The European consumer data protection law keeps you save that your data are not getting traded.

Only people, which are not able to read and think, will promote marketagent.com at the English speaking part of the world. In any case such people are only wasting their time because they have even not enough surveys for their German speaking members and the referrer gets only paid if the refferal participates on his first survey.

This case shows even that all these other survey sites, which are offering you a high monthly income are only SCAM and they willnot pay you. The worst ones are these, which are asking for a membership fee from you.

Affiliates & MLM Marketing | Suspicious Sites

Zip Nada Zilch - ZNZ - zipnadazilch.com - declares themselves in their terms and conditions to be a scammer

by Rudolf Faix 27. July 2015 06:41

Zip Nada ZilchYou can compare the site from Zip Nada Zilch (ZNZ) with a mall where you can enter and find a lot of different shops. If one of the shops is a fraudster is not the mall owner guilty. In the case of ZNZ you can only say that ZNZ did not make any background check about the offers in this case. The question is only if they need to make a background check? In any case such a fraudster in their mall makes the reputation of the mall not better and as ZNZ is offering free of charge but only in exchange against your personal data access to this mall they are in any case partly responsible for that what in the mall happens.

ZNZ is operating only in the 50 U.S. states, Canada and UK. As you have to complete some offers before you can earn money by promoting the services from ZNZ are getting only membership requests from people living in the U.S., Canada and UK are getting accepted. Before you sign up with them you should check if the offers on the sites from ZNZ are interesting and suitable for you, because you have to complete between 1 and 20 offers before you are able to promote the services from ZNZ for earning money. The ofered services are not free of charge and can get in sum expensive for you. Nowhere you can get money for free and nobody can spend more money than he earns if he don't like to run into bankruptcy.

In this case even the method, which is described in the member area of Income Jack does not really help you to get a membership at ZNZ because you have to complete some of their offers. For this is the offer from Income Jack a misleading promotion. Here is the description from Income Jack:

For those of you outside of USA, Canada and UK:

ZipNadaZilch was initially intended for affiliates in the USA, Canada and the UK however, if you live outside these areas you might still be able to promote ZNZ, as long as you are in an area served by PayPal.

While ZNZ does not “guarantee” that all international users will be able to refer others to ZNZ to earn “gifts” (referral commissions), they may allow you to do so.

You will need to Contact Them HERE, and simply tell them what country that you are in and ask for permission to exchange one qualified referral for your own qualification. DO THIS BEFORE YOU CREATE YOUR ZNZ ACCOUNT. You need to be “unreferred” at the time of making this request.

Here is a suggested wording for the request that you could send do them. Please vary slightly to fit yourself and edit “[YOUR COUNTRY]” and “[YOUR NAME]”:

— START COPY —-

Hello.

I am located in [YOUR COUNTRY] but I would like to refer USA, CAN and UK users to your http://bigcash.zipnadazilch.com to complete offers.

I have not created my account yet as I was told that users in my location may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Those that I refer are people that are my email subscribers, all opt-in subscribers who have requested information from me about free online offers or low-cost income opportunities.

Would you please allow me to refer people to you, and provide instructions as to how to proceed?

Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]

 

—- END COPY —-

This would mean that you wouldn’t need to complete the trial offers to qualify… you can’t anyway due to your location.

If ZNZ approves you, you will simply need to refer USA users to earn referral commissions (Or CAN and UK users)

Again, this is not guaranteed. ZNZ has communicated that they do allow this on an individual basis. You do need to contact them first to get “ok” to do so.

If they ask what you will do to promote the offers simply tell them “Personal referrals, via email and personal networking.” There is no point in mentioning IncomeJack because they won’t know what you’re talking about. IncomeJack is simply a system I created to assist you in your personal networking, to save yourself time in explaining and selling. IncomeJack’s process is considered personal networking.

Even if ZNZ agrees with your request you have to complete some of their offers before you are able to promote their service. Actually you would be only in a good shape in this case if you need to register a new domain. In this case you can use their actual offer from Godaddy, which gives you the necessary one point you need for promoting the services from ZNZ. All other actual offers from bigcash.nadazilch.com are more or less only available in Canada, U. S. and UK.

You see the misleading promotion is done from the affiliates of ZNZ with their time-waster videos and not from ZNZ itself. In any case this one which is working with fraudster need not wonder himself that he will get called to be a fraudster too. This fraudster image gets confirmed if you are looking at an example offer from their homepage. It is nothing else than a misleading promotion:

*FEATURED OFFER*
Cinematrix (US, UK)
Watch online

Credit Value:0.10 Credits
Cost:Free!
Credits:Instantly
us uk

If you take a look at the details from this offer then you see that you have to provide a credit card:

Cinematrix (US, UK)


Description: Watch movies on your computer!

Requirements: To receive credit, you must sign up for the trial with a valid credit card. Prepaid/gift cards are NOT allowed.

Note: You must be logged into your account to access/complete offers. You can log into your account from the log-in tab.

This is nothing else than a misleading promotion. An offer is only really free if you don't need to pay something. Trial offers with the deposit of a credit card are not really free because it can happen something to you and you are not able to cancel the offer in time. In this case is ZNZ not better then their affiliates. Here is it even worse because they require for completing the offer a postpaid credit card and they like to play man-in-the-middle during the time you are completing the offer. All the offers found at the website from ZNZ have similar requirements.

My opinion is that everybody is stupid who is using a postpaid credit card on the Internet and he should relocate into a madhouse if he is accepting a man-in-the-middle system during a sign-up process at a website where sensible data are getting transmitted.

The result of their own conditions can get seen at Web Of Trust too. If you take a look at the negative comments about ZNZ at Web Of Trust than you see that others see the risk of identity theft too:

WOT rating from zipnadazilch.com

An Alexa global ranking of 300,000 equals to around 100 - 150 visitors a day for all sites of the domain zipnadazilch.com. Normally you need 1,000 visitors for getting 1 new member.

Alexa ranking of zipnadazilch.com

If we take a look at a Rippoff Report, then we fin a user, which did not understand with whom he made a contract and that ZNZ has been only the promotion agency. What is more interesting is the answer he got and which seems to be from ZNZ (Author: Drew) - the relevant parts are:

To be QUALIFIED to receive money for introducing others to the program, you yourself must participate by getting your "credits." This constitutes taking trial offers yourself and keeping them the alloted amount of time. Which is 80% of the trial period. So let's say that you take a 7 day offer, 7 X .80 = 5.6 days, so you write down on your calendar to do with that offer what you will after 5.6 days but before 7 days, it is not rocket science. OF COURSE the offers encourage you to keep the offer past the end of the trial period, that is WHY they are offereing the trial in the first place.

If you do not cancel the trial before the end of the trial period, you will be charged, that is why it is called a trial period. So... If someone is angry that they were charged, it should not be with ZNZ, they CLEARLY tell you how long the trial period is, they are not trying to fool anyone.

The companies that advertise within ZNZ are seeking real customers, who want to keep their products, but the companies themselves are offering the "trial" so they can't force you to keep it, but understand this...

There is a much greater probablility that someone who actually has a product for a little bit of time, and actually experiences the benefit of the product will WANT to keep it. In reality, you could go out on the internet right now, independent of ZNZ and do one of these trial offers. Let's say a credit report offer of some kind and you could see your credit report pretty much immediately and then you could cancel the offer right away. That is what A LOT of people do, but with ZNZ and to participate with ZNZ, one MUST keep the offer 80% of the time. That is enough time to experience the benefit and make an educated decision as to whether to continue on and become an actual customer.

For the case that the above statement is really a statement from ZNZ then is the fraud starting here. These terms are not written in the FAQ and are not getting found in their Terms and Conditions. Additional is the above statement an instruction how to break the point II/4 of their Terms and Conditions - there is written:

II. OFFERS

  1. ZipNadaZilch does not guarantee that a user will receive credit for any offer. We reserve the right to refuse a user credit for an offer for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, lack of appropriate information or fraudulent information.

  2. A user may only receive credit for completing an offer once on any site. Do not complete an offer twice as this is considered fraud.

  3. Users are responsible for ensuring their browser settings have been set properly in order for the offer to be credited.

  4. A user should only complete an offer they are interested in. Completing an offer only to get your free gift is considered fraud.

  5. ZipNadaZilch is not responsible for delays in reporting offer completion or failure to receive credit.

  6. ZipNadaZilch is not responsible for any unknown or unexpected charges that you receive from one or more of our offers. Read the offers terms and conditions before signing up.

  7. Prepaid cards as well as gift cards are strictly forbidden to be used on any offer promoted at ZipNadaZilch – it is considered fraud to do so.

My opinion is the fraud already shown in the first point of these conditions: "ZipNadaZilch does not guarantee that a user will receive credit for any offer. We reserve the right to refuse a user credit for an offer for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, lack of appropriate information or fraudulent information."

Additional is the rule I/7 "Accounts may be suspended or closed at any time for any reason based on the discretion of the ZipNadaZilch Network." not conform with any Consumer Protection law, because one of the hidden reasons can be that the consumer is earning too much money.

It does not matter if the site from ZNZ is free of charge or not - even personal data having a value. If ZNZ cannot guarantee for something than their offer is nothing else than SCAM, because how they have declared by themselves they are able to reject crediting you for any newly invented reason without inform you before. It does not make any difference how long the company exists. Their own conditions are declaring them as fraudster. If they have conditions to reject crediting you than they have to list them all. We know that scammers are lazy and for this they are not listing the full conditions for making more income by themselves.

In any case are these Terms and Conditions against the Consumer Protection law of the European Union and UK. UK is a member of the European Union. As much as I have seen until now is the U.S. FTC about such rules not very happy too.

At the point II/7 is ZNZ declaring the usage of prepaid credit cards as a fraud. Maybe someone should inform the credit card companies about this statement and maybe they are taking the proper legal actions against ZNZ. In this case ZNZ would be very fast history.

The terms and conditions from ZNZ are in Europe not valid because of the consumer protection law. Their own laziness and business idea makes the Terms and conditions invalid because they like that the user is even responsible for everything and they are by themselves for nothing responsible. They are even too lazy to inform the users about changes in the Terms and conditions. This gets shown in the remaining Terms and Conditions:

RESPONSIBILITY
In no event will ZipNadaZilch, LLC. be liable for any incidental, consequential, or indirect damages (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, business interruption, loss of programs or information, and the like) arising out of the use of or inability to use this service, or any information, or transactions provided on this service or downloaded from this service, even if ZipNadaZilch, LLC. or its authorized representatives have been advised of the possibility of such damages, or (b) any claim attributable to errors, omissions, or other inaccuracies in this service and/or information downloaded through this service.

INDEMNIFICATION
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless ZipNadaZilch, LLC., its employees, agents, licensors, suppliers and any third party information providers to this Website from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any violation of this Agreement or any activity related to your Internet access account (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing this Website using your Internet access account.

TERMINATION OF USE
If at any time you wish to not participate on this site, simply discontinue use of your account.

TERMS & CONDITIONS MODIFICATIONS
ZipNadaZilch reserves the right to change its Terms & Conditions at any time. We also reserve the right to change point values of rewards or offers at any time for any reason. Use of the site after such modifications acknowledges and binds a user to the updated agreement.

Changes in the Terms and Conditions have to get announced at least one month before they are getting valid according the consumer protection law in Europe. Hidden changes are making the complete Terms and Conditions invalid!

Not one consumer can get prosecuted if his account is getting hacked by criminals. In such a case the company can get prosecuted for not taking care of their own security and the data of their members. That ZNZ does not delete accounts on request gets shown at "TERMINATION OF USE". Their own behavior is in this case very negligently.

They are oftering in UK their service and even don't know the consumer rights from UK and the European Union. The law cannot get excluded by defining Terms and Conditions. As there are so many rules against the law including the product liability are getting all rules of their terms and conditions replaced by the standard law system. This is the result of their laziness.

For all the above reasons and to protect themselves from their "happy" customers they need to hide their identity even at the domain registration:

Fraud & Scam

BitGold Inc. - very suspicious - will they burst like a bubble?

by Rudolf Faix 24. July 2015 15:52

First of all BitGold is an official registered company. Only their own marketing, their own presentation on the Internet and the canvassing of their members makes this company very suspicious. Especially the misleading promises by aquiring new members found in the social networks are more destroying the image of a stock traded company than giving them a good reputation.

BitGold tries to be a copy from Paypal with the additional possibility to have a stock of gold. Gold has been from around 600 BC until the First World War the main currency. With other words BitGold tries to secure their members with a stock of gold, which can get used as a currency for payments by using the actual buy and sell prices.

For growing faster by getting more members they try to give you a commission for each new member which you get into the system. Together with their own system of different promotions, commission payments and the greediness and incapability to read of their members leads to misleading promotions by giving false promises. This fail shows that Joshua Crumb and Roy Sebag have a lot to learn about marketing, promotion and how to get and keep a good reputation.

Such a misleading promotion gets found on Facebook:

BitGold is the new and way better BitCoin check it out for yourself you get over $8 to join FREE!! and over $8 each referral that joins free watch the video below and then get your free money by joining http://BitGold.com/r/PHtH8C

Here is the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZknYm6itS_I

see you all at http://BitGold.com/r/PHtH8C

True is like it is stated in the Golden Heart referral program:

Send this unique address to your friends via email, text message, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. When a friend signs up using your unique web address they receive 0.025 g ($0.87) grams of Gold and you receive 0.025 g ($0.87) grams of Gold instantly!*

* The Golden Heart(TM) referral program bonus may vary in each region and is subject to change without notice.

The above statement makes a company already unserious. It is like a lottery if you get something or not if you promote their service. As nowhere is written which countries are supported and how much you get for a promotion in each country is it nothing else than a teasing of their own members. They even have all option in this case to cheat. The phrase "The Golden Heart(TM) referral program bonus may vary in each region" looks for me like racism and is for me and in my view nothing else than a scam. As we know are scammers lazy, this company is even too greedy or too lazy for developing a system which is valid for the whole world. They are even too lazy to inform their members by email about some changes in the rules and have written "... and is subject to change without notice". That is for me already a reason for not making business with them. In Europe are such phrases useless and are invalid in front of the law court. A company can even get fined for such rules. Any changes in conditions have to get announced in an acceptable timeframe - mostly one month - before they are getting valid.

Three years ago Joshua Crumb has been a senior Global Metals Strategist at Goldman Sachs in London. All specialists are a more or less chaotic. I think that is the reason why we find the same chaos from their Golden Heart(TM) referral program very well documented in their company structure. That is looking for me more like a haphazard mess instead of a well-planned action:

BitGold has overtaken the GoldMoney platform from the billionaire Eric Sprott. With GoldMoney they bought 150,000 customers and more than 1.5 billion dollars in assets. These must now getting successfully integrated into one platform. At BusinessWire we can read the next change from BitGold Inc.: "The first step will be a name change of BitGold Inc. to GoldMoney Inc., subject to regulatory approval.". With this action they like to use the traditional name and the good reputation from GoldMoney Inc. We will see how long it will take until the reputation from GoldMoney will get destroyed too.

The web-based platform, which got created under the leadership of Joshua Crumb and Roy Sebag, makes the impression like she is still under development - especially if you are taking a look at it in German language. There you'll find a very bad translation of the content with a mix up of English messages and content. Even Google translate makes a better translation of the content.

BitGold bad translation

Especially the preselection of the language in the user section shows us that the site got cheap programmed in Eastern Europe, India or Russia. The possibility to have the site after log-in in English or German language is completely missing:

BitGold offered languages

The next failure on the website gives you the same impression that the Canadian address from BitGold Inc. is nothing else than only a post forwarding service. If you are following the link on the site Missing Golden Heart™ bonus (Last Updated: Jul 21, 2015 09:48AM EDT) at point 6

6. Your friend resides in a country where BitGold is currently not available. Click here to view our list of supported countries.

you'll get the next surprise:

BitGold support center

The above facts and the fact that I even did not get any answer from the customer service gives me the impression that their customers and members are not important - especially if they seem to be from a low wage country. That shows only the limited horizon in thinking from the owners and directors of Bitgold Inc. They seem not to understand that people from Europe and USA are enjoying their retirement time in Asian countries. These kinds of people are normally not really the poor ones.

My experience is that every company, which has been growing too fast, blurted like a bubble. The question is only how their customer and members are getting their gold in the case of a crash and how long it will take? It is much easier to speculate with the money from others as with your own.

How you can lose money in Multi Level Marketing by the example of Amway

by Rudolf Faix 20. July 2015 06:27

AmwayU.S. MLM companies have to provide an income disclaimer for their promotion. This is forced by law otherwise the participants of their system have the possibility to force the company paying out the promised earnings. In Europe are even not helping such disclaimers. There need to get promises from the promotion fulfilled.

In light of the figures in the Amway pay arrangement, they are letting us know - Less than a large portion of the individuals who join stay "active" and overall, the individuals who stayed "active" and worked the framework, lost cash.

Income disclosure from Amway found on page 11 (IBO = Independent Business Owners):

The average monthly Gross Income for “active” IBOs in the U.S. was $202.

Approximately 46% of all IBOs in the U.S. were “active.”

U.S. IBOs were considered “active” in months in 2010 when they attempted to make a retail sale, or presented the Amway IBO Compensation Plan, or received bonus money, or attended an Amway or IBO meeting. If someone sustained that level of activity every month for a whole year, their annualized income would be $2,424. Of course, not every IBO chooses to be active every month.“Gross Income” means the amount received from retail sales, minus the cost of goods sold, plus monthly bonuses and cash incentives. It excludes all annual bonuses and cash incentives, and all non-cash awards, which may be significant. There may also be significant business expenses, mostly discretionary, that may be greater in relation to income in the first years of operation.

  1. Includes compensation from Amway IBO Compensation Plan and Growth Incentives (GI) Program during 2013.

  2. Approximately 0.31% of IBOs in North America achieved at least Q12 Platinum status (but not Sapphire or higher) in the calendar year ended December 31, 2013.

  3. Approximately 0.09% of IBOs in North America achieved at least Founders Emerald status (but not Founders Diamond or higher) in the calendar year ended December 31, 2013.

  4. Approximately 0.03% of IBOs in North America achieved Founders Diamond or higher in the calendar year ended December 31, 2013.

For average annual compensation and highest annual compensation at all IBO levels, go to Amway.com and search for: Money and Rewards.

A description of the income sheme from Amway gets found in their Business Reference Guide at page 5:

Immediate Income

Your immediate income is the difference between the cost at which you purchase product inventory from Amway or your sponsoring IBO, and the price at which you sell the products to your own customers. This income is realized immediately upon each sale to a customer. For your convenience, Amway publishes suggested retail prices for all products. However, these are suggested prices only, and you are not obligated to charge these prices. Each IBO is entitled to determine independently the prices at which they sell products to IBOs or other customers.

Performance Bonus

Additional income may be earned through the monthly Performance Bonus. The Performance Bonus is driven by sales volume, which is tracked from two sets of numbers – Point Value (PV) and Business Volume (BV) – that are published in connection with each available product or service.

PV is a unit amount (you can think of it as the number of points) assigned to each product. The total PV associated with your monthly sales volume is tracked to determine your Performance Bonus bracket. The higher your PV total, the higher the percentage (up to 25%) used in calculating your bonus (see the Performance Bonus Schedule below).

BV is a dollar figure assigned to each product. The total BV associated with your monthly sales volume is multiplied by the percent from your PV bracket to determine your gross Performance Bonus. Your sales volume, or your PV/BV as it is generally known, is generated by your own purchases, whether for personal use or resale, and by the purchases made by your registered customers.

To figure your gross Performance Bonus, you add the Pass-up Volume from your frontline IBOs (those you personally registered) – both PV and BV – to your personal PV and BV, then make your calculation according to the Performance Bonus Schedule. However, any Performance Bonuses earned by your frontline IBOs, using the same Schedule, must be subtracted from the gross amount to arrive at your net Performance Bonus. In addition, you will at least be at the same percentage bracket as your downline.

Note: Experience has shown that IBOs who register others generally have higher average volume than those who do not.

I have added to the provided table the average sales volume in US$ and the paid commission from the samples. The result is that 1 Point (PV) has the value of US$ 3. The normal mark-up between wholesaler and retailer for the product assortment is calculated from down to up 50% or calculated from up to down 33.33%. Here you see already how Amway is making some extra money because they are giving in sum a maximum of 25% discount.

Points (PV) US$ sales Comm% Comm US$
100 $300 3% $9
300 $900 6% $54
600 $1,800 9% $162
1000 $3,000 12% $360
1500 $4,500 15% $675
2500 $7,500 18% $1,350
4000 $12,000 21% $2,520
6000 $18,000 23% $4,140
7500 $22,500 25% $5,625

To remain active you have at least to buy for a value of US$ 300 – hopefully you are able to resell it. If you take a look at their income disclaimer you'll see that the average income of the IBO's has been US$ 202. With other words each of their IBO's have lost in average US$ 98 per month!

You may have some major difficulty burning through $22,500 every month on sales, yet this gets to be less demanding once you have a down line. Anybody you by and by backer, will "pass up" volume to you. On the off chance that you are new to the framework and figure out how to create enough volume to meet all requirements for a 3% installment, then your supporter will get 3% from you deals (6%-3%). Their supporter will get 3% from your deals (9% - 6%) thus on until the full 25% has been paid.

This "pass up" framework urges individuals to support whatever number newcomers as would be prudent. However there is no motivator to support enlists and help them succeed. The only thing that is in any way important is that cash is being spent. In the event that an individual is losing cash and winning nothing, the cash they spend is as yet sustaining the framework, and sending 25% commission up through the chain of importance.
