Easy 1up Review: Five-tier pass-up cash gifting
There is no information on the Easy 1up website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Easy 1up website domain (“easy1up.com”) was first registered on the 8th of June 2007.
The domain registration was recently updated on June 9th, 2016. The current registration details are set to private.
Further research reveals affiliate naming Peter Wolfing (right) as the owner of Easy 1up. This can be confirmed by way of the Easy 1up website being hosted on the same private server as Ultimate Cycler.
Ultimate Cycler is a matrix cycler Ponzi launched by Wolfing back in 2014.
Other MLM underbelly schemes launched by Wolfing over the years include Turbo Cycler (cash gifting), Business Toolbox (chain-recruitment), Infinity 100 (cash gifting), National Wealth Center (cash gifting) and Pay Me Forward (cash gifting).
Read on for a full review of the Easy 1up MLM opportunity.
The Easy 1up Product Line
Easy 1up has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Easy 1up affiliate membership itself.
Once signed up, Easy 1up affiliates gift between $25 to $500 to the affiliate who recruited them. Bundled with each gifting payment is the following:
- $25 payment – Network Marketing Basics course and Affiliate KickStarter video series
- $100 payment – Free Marketing and Cash Generation video series
- $250 payment – Advanced Digital Business video series
- $500 payment – Money Counts Live Business Building course
The Easy 1up Compensation Plan
The Easy 1up compensation plan sees affiliates gift $25 to $500 to the affiliate who recruited them.
This payment then qualifies them to receive the same amounts from subsequently recruited affiliates.
Payments in Easy 1up are tracked via a 1-up model through a unilevel compensation structure.
A unilevel compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a unilevel team, with every personally recruited affiliate placed directly under them (level 1):
If any level 1 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team.
If any level 2 affiliates recruit new affiliates, they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretical infinite number of levels.
The 1up model sees each Easy 1up affiliate pass up their second gifting payment to the affiliate who recruited them.
In turn, every affiliate they recruit must all pass up their second gifting payments too.
Gifting payments are made across each of Easy 1up’s four tiers, with higher levels automatically qualifying an affiliate to receive payments across the lower levels.
A gifting payment of $500 qualifies an Easy 1up affiliate to earn commissions across all four tiers.
Note that entering at the $500 level also waives the pass-up component of the compensation plan.
Joining Easy 1up
Affiliate membership with Easy 1up is tied to payment of a $25 to $500 gifting fee plus 10% admin fee.
The larger an affiliate’s gifting payment the higher their income potential through the Easy 1up compensation plan.
Easy 1up is yet another cash gifting scheme from serial gifting admin Peter Wolfing.
The attached products are neither here nor there, with the gifting income opportunity what is truly marketed by Easy 1up affiliates.
Don’t believe me? Good luck finding an Easy 1up affiliate marketing the bundled products and not the income opportunity.
Leave alone the fact that with affiliates paying eachother directly, these can hardly be called product sales. If anything the actual value (if any) attached to the products is reflected in the admin payments, representing a whopping 90% markup just to fund the compensation plan.
As with all gifting schemes, once affiliate recruitment dies off so too will will gifting payments within Easy 1up.
No gifting payments means nobody is getting paid and the scheme collapses.
At that point anyone who hasn’t recruited at least one affiliate at the same level they bought in at loses out.
Being a pass-up scheme, Wolfing will have inserted himself at the top of the company-wide unilevel. This ensures that he receives the majority of funds passed up within the scheme, on top of admin fees each Easy 1up affiliate pays.
Quite a number of people in FB are aggressively recruiting to build their team, showing actual receipts of gifting they received from their referrals.
At this stage, they are all getting paid. How long more ?
Same as any gifting scheme, until new suckers stop joining.
“They” being the recruiters, not the joiners. That’s how such schemes work. The joiners simply get an I-OWE-U
I am so sick of seeing these habitual ponzi scamming admins launching one after another and NOTHING happening to them!
The authorities could easily haul these dirtbags in and file charges! Why doesn’t this ever happen??? Peter Wolfing, Sherm Mason etc…… they need to be put behind bars.
I’ve 5x my money in 3 days. Long term play? No, but I can now reinvest those profits.
No residual? Who cares. Work your butt off and you will keep making money.
Scamming people in cash gifting schemes is hardly work.
But whatever helps you sleep at night…
So you can putting the same money back in dozens of times profit?
I call it foolish.
I just read two reviews promoting this system, posted by two different people and both reviews were written verbatim. Hmmm…a bit fishy to me.
I had joined IPS at the beginning of the year and my sponsor, who has done well, went from actively promoting IPS, to Exitus Elite and now Easy 1Up, so I’ve been noticing the trend of these MLMs, in terms of them being short lived.
She may still be earning some residuals off of IPS, but I haven’t seen her actively promoting it for quite some time.
To her credit, she’s done very well with these systems and she’s very helpful, but she’s been going at this for the past few years or so, so she’s not a newbie.
I guess for the experienced marketers, you can earn big and then just jump on to the next MLM when the other fizzles out and as long as people continue to buy into them, there will always be a market.
Watch out now. DeMarcus Davenport (big time ponzi scammer) is now pimping, what he calls the next easy1up! It is called pro1klcp.com.
here is his pathetic email….what a bunch of hype pimping scammery! “Iamabigtimescammer” added to the URL by me.
I think Pro1KLCP is a cash gifting scheme and DeMarcus Davenport is a serial scammer.
Interesting screenshot on vimeo at 11:55 in the video where you see Alex Zubarev sharing his results.
Notice in the screenshot he is comped for all products. Just like he was in Digital Altitude. Maybe in every deal he’s in which seems like a lot these days.
Looks like one scammer is doing very well with this:
Still promoting it as of this week.
Maybe it’s just a fun way to make money online but not a full time business?
Some mindset you’ve got to have to think ripping people off is fun.
Easy 1up is a gifting scam. The money gifted in by new participants has to funnel up somewhere. In this case it seems a lot of it is going into serial scammer Michael Mansell’s pocket.
Not sure what your point was.
I love your website. It has helped me realize the difference between pyramid scams and real businesses. I wish I had come across your site before joining Easy 1 Up.
I signed up with one of the top leaders, Thaddious Thomas at the highest level..he promised me that he would help me get my first sale within a month.
That was over 2 years ago. I could have made some sales on my own since then but when I read your articles plus thoroughly went through the training and website at Easy 1 Up, I had a feeling of guilt come over me whenever I thought about promoting the opportunity.
I don’t want to scam or rip people off. I am now in wholesale/retail selling physical products on shopify and amazon.
I now know why the scammers rather scam.. real business takes hard work, something they aren’t interested in.
A reader wrote in and requested a review of Amplified Profits, run by serial scammer Michael Mansell.
I noted in the footer of the Amplified Profits email capture website he’s set up it states:
It seems Mansell is promoting Easy1Up through Amplified Profits.
