EcoPlus Network Review: $25 a month matrix positions
There is no information on the EcoPlus Network website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The EcoPlus Network domain was registered on the 25th of October 2015, with John Dierksmeier listed as the owner. An address in the US state of Texas is also provided.
John Dierksmeier (right) first appeared on BehindMLM’s radar back in late 2011, as the Founder and President of MaxeVida.
MaxeVida was a matrix-based opportunity which saw affiliates retail a capsule-based supplement.
MaxeVida seems to have collapsed sometime in 2012, with Dierksmeier (right) then going on to launch Only20Bucks.
Again based on a matrix compensation plan, Only20Bucks was a recruitment-driven feeder for iClubBiz (in which Dierksmeier was an affiliate).
iClubBiz itself was an autoship-centric recruitment scheme launched in 2013.
2014 saw Dierksmeier get into coffee, with the launch of Cafe Nopal.
On the affiliate side of things, Dierksmeier has been involved with New Earth (reboot of Simplexity Health), Xerveo (formerly Ferveo), CeraCoat Direct (nanotechnology coating) and more recently GoBig7 (a Penny Matrix reboot).
2015 has seen Dierksmeier launch Nopa Vida and 2×2 Wealth.
Nopa Vida saw affiliates purchase matrix positions and get paid when subsequently recruited affiliates did the same.
2×2 Wealth was a matrix cycler, again paying affiliates to purchase a matrix position and recruit others who do the same.
Alexa traffic estimates on the Nopa Vida and 2×2 Wealth websites suggest both have since collapsed, likely prompting the launch of EcoPlus Network
Read on for a full review of the EcoPlus Network MLM business opportunity.

The EcoPlus Network Compensation Plan
The EcoPlus Network compensation plan sees affiliates paid to recruit new affiliates.
Commissions are also paid if recruited affiliates purchase EcoPlus Network producs.
Product Purchase Commissions
Any products purchased by an EcoPlus Network affiliate’s downline pay out commissions down two levels of recruitment (unilevel):
- level 1 purchases pay out a 10% commission (personally recruited affiliates)
- level 2 purchases also pay out a 10% commission
Note that at the time of publication, there are no products listed on the EcoPlus Network website.
The EcoPlus Network compensation plan sees affiliates purchase a $25 a month position in a 2×6 matrix.
Commissions are paid out when subsequently recruited affiliates also purchase a matrix position.
A 2×6 matrix places an affiliate at the top of the matrix, with two positions directly under them (level 1):
These initial two positions form the first level of the matrix, with level 2 generated by splitting each of the two level 1 positions into another two positions each.
Subsequent levels of the matrix are generated in this manner, with each having double the amount of positions as the previous level.
Commissions are paid out as positions in the matrix are filled, with positions filled via the direct and indirect recruitment of new affiliates.
EcoPlus Network affiliates pay $25 a month to maintain a purchased matrix commission, with these monthly fees used to pay commissions through the matrix as follows:
- positions filled on level 1 = 50 cents paid per position filled (2 positions total)
- positions filled on level 2 = 75 cents paid per position filled (4 positions total)
- positions filled on level 3 = $2 paid per position filled (8 positions total)
- positions filled on level 4 = $5 paid per position filled (16 positions total)
- positions filled on level 5 = $2.50 paid per position filled (32 positions total)
- positions filled on level 6 = $5 paid per position filled (64 positions total)
Matching Matrix Commissions
EcoPlus Network affiliates earn a 100% matching bonus on the level 4 and level 6 earnings of personally recruited affiliates.
This is combined with a 1-up compensation structure, which sees an affiliate pass up referral commissions from their second and fourth recruited affiliates.
In turn, each recruited affiliates also passes up their second and fourth recruited affiliate’s matching bonus. They also pass up their second and fourth recruited affiliate’s matching bonus and so on and so forth.
Joining EcoPlus Network
Affiliate membership with EcoPlus Network is tied to a matrix position purchase, which costs $25 a month.
The fact that there are no products listed on the EcoPlus Network, yet affiliates are able to purchase matrix positions, reveals the core nature of the business model.
Even with products, with only affiliates purchasing them EcoPlus Network is still just a chain-recruitment scheme.
The matrix component of the compensation plan is where the bulk of commissions are earned, with constant recruitment required to pay out those at the bottom of the company-wide matrix.
Mathematically, EcoPlus Network affiliates pay $25 a month and get paid to recruit others who do the same.
The more affiliates one recruits, the higher the monthly commission payment. Recruiting efforts by those personally recruited also add to the monthly matrix commission paid out.
The product commissions are neither here nor there. Firstly because they currently don’t exist, and secondly because retail is not possible.
With only affiliates able to purchase products, they only provide yet an alternative way to get paid from recruited affiliates.
As with all pyramid schemes, once recruitment of new affiliates dries up so too will commissions paid out.
Being a matrix-based scheme, this will manifest itself by way of those at the bottom of the company-wide matrix ceasing to pay their monthly $25 fee.
This will result in those above them not earning commissions from month to month, which will eventually also see them stop paying their monthly fee too.
Those above them stop getting paid and, over time as this creeps higher and higher up the company-wide matrix, eventually an irreversible company-wide collapse is triggered.
John Dierksmeier sits at the top of the EcoPlus Network company-wide matrix, ensuring he walks away with the lion’s share of position commissions and rolled up matching bonuses.
Everybody else, bar a few early adopters, loses out.
