Elevacity Review: Travopoly hitched to another MLM opp
There is no information on the Elevacity website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Elevacity website domain (“elevacity.com”) was registered on the 26th of January 2014, however the domain registration is set to private.
Further research reveals Robert Oblon identified as Founder and CEO of the company. Why this information is not presented on the Elevacity website is unclear.
On his LinkedIn profile, Oblon cites his location as Texas. The Elevacity website Terms states that the company has ‘offices within the State of Texas, U.S. of America‘.
Prior to launching Elevacity, Oblon (right) was President of World Ventures. He also held a 5% ownership stake in the company.
World Ventures is a travel niche MLM company that primarily pays affiliates to recruit new affiliates.
Oblon also owned Travopoly, which as I understand it was a vendor World Ventures provided travel discounts through.
In 2011 World Ventures filed a lawsuit against Oblon and Travopoly, accusing them of violating a Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation agreement.
I did try to look up the outcome of the case but was unsuccessful.
After Oblon left World Ventures, Travopoly appears to have continued on as a stand-alone vacation platform.
Oblon launched FourOceans Global in 2015, through which Elevacity is offered. Travopoly is featured on the Elevacity website as a “partner” of the company.
Read on for a full review of the Elevacity MLM opportunity.

The Elevacity Compensation Plan
The Elevacity compensation plan is a combination of recruitment commissions and ongoing residuals paid out on affiliate spends.
Retail commissions are possible but don’t appear to be the focus of the income opportunity.
Commission qualification in Elevacity is $25 a month.
This can be self-funded by an affiliate or a purchase made by one of their retail customers.
Elevacity Affiliate Ranks
There are twelve ranks within the Elevacity compensation plan.
Along with their respective qualification criteria, they are as follows:
- Business Partner – sign up as an Elevacity affiliate and maintain $25 in volume each month
- Marketing Partner – have two retail customers on monthly autoship and recruit and maintain two commission qualified affiliates
Note that Elevacity do not provide qualification criteria for the remaining ten ranks in their compensation plan.
From what I’ve been able to gleam from various Elevacity affiliate marketing presentations, rank promotion is a combination of volume targets, retail customer acquisition and affiliate recruitment.
When newly recruited Elevacity affiliates purchase a “Fast Track Pack”, the recruiting affiliate is paid a $20 to $400 commission.
No specifics on how much Fast Track Packs cost are provided in the Elevacity compensation plan.
Residual recruitment commissions are paid out via a binary compensation structure.
A binary compensation structure places an affiliate at the top of a binary team, split into two sides (left and right):
The binary team begins with two positions on the first level, which splits into four positions on the second level.
In this manner as many binary levels as needed are generated, with each level housing twice as many positions as the last level.
Fast Track Pack sales volume is tracked on both sides of the binary, with $200 generated on the weaker binary side triggering a 10% to 20% commission.
The Elevacity compensation plan does not specify qualification criteria for an affiliate to earn 20%.
Residual commissions in Elevacity are paid out via 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.
Commissions are paid out as a percentage of sales volume generated in the unilevel team, generated by both recruited affiliate purchases and retail customer orders.
How much of a percentage is paid out is determined by an Elevacity affiliate’s rank:
- Business Partner – 10% on level 1 and 5% on level 2
- Marketing Partner – 10% on level 1 and 5% on levels 2 to 4
- Bronze – 10% on level 1 and 5% on levels 2 to 5
- Silver – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5 and 4% on level 6
- Gold – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5 and 4% on levels 6 and 7
- Sapphire – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5 and 4% on levels 6 to 8
- Ruby – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5 and 4% on levels 6 to 9
- Emerald – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5, 4% on levels 6 to 9 and 3% on level 10
- Diamond – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5, 4% on levels 6 to 9 and 3% on levels 10 and 11
- Double Diamond – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5, 4% on levels 6 to 9, 3% on levels 10 and 11, 2% on level 12 and 0.5% on level 13 onwards
- Triple Diamond – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5, 4% on levels 6 to 9, 3% on levels 10 and 11, 2% on level 12 and 0.75% on level 13 onwards
- Presidential Diamond – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5, 4% on levels 6 to 9, 3% on levels 10 and 11, 2% on level 12 and 1% on level 13 onwards
- Crown Diamond – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5, 4% on levels 6 to 9, 3% on levels 10 and 11, 2% on level 12 and 1.25% on level 13 onwards
- Crown Ambassador – 10% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 to 5, 4% on levels 6 to 9, 3% on levels 10 and 11, 2% on level 12 and 1.5% on level 13 onwards
A matching bonus on unilevel commissions is also offered, beginning at the Gold rank:
- Gold and Sapphire – 5% match on level 1 (personally recruited affiliates)
- Ruby – 10% on level 1 and 5% on level 2
- Emerald – 10% on level 1 and 5% on levels 2 and 3
- Diamond – 10% on level 1 and 5% on levels 2 to 4
- Double Diamond and higher – 10% on levels 1 and 2 and 5% on levels 3 and 4

Global Bonus Pool
The Global Bonus Pool is made up of 4% of Elevacity’s revenue, split into six pools:
- Gold – 20%
- Sapphire – 20%
- Ruby – 15%
- Emerald – 15%
- Diamond – 15%
- Presidential Diamond – 15%
Elevacity affiliates earn a share in the pool that corresponds with their affiliate rank (starting at the Gold rank).
Gratitude Reward Points
Gratitude Reward Points are an inhouse virtual currency Elevacity reward affiliates with when they recruit new affiliates, spend money or process retail customer orders.
How many Gratitude Reward Points are earned is unclear, however the company does specify that 20 points are awarded for every $20 of commissionable volume generated.
Stay The Course Reward
If an Elevacity affiliate qualifies for commissions for twenty-four consecutive months, the company rewards them with “a paid vacation every year for life”.
The value of the vacation is represented as $5000 in the Elevacity compensation plan.
Affiliate membership with Elevacity is $49.97.
If an affiliate self-qualifies for commissions, an additional $25 a month must be paid.
There’s a fair bit of information about Elevacity missing from their website. Retail product information and rank qualification criteria in the compensation plan for starters.
This is important because travel-based MLM opportunities are notorious for primarily paying commissions on the recruitment of new affiliates.
The retail customer requirements tied to affiliate ranks appears to tackle this problem, but I can’t say for sure because rank qualification criteria is conspicuously absent in Elevacity’s compensation plan documentation.
What you’re left with is affiliate product packs, the price of which is also not disclosed, which are tied to recruitment commissions running into hundreds of dollars.
Residual commissions appear tied to $25 a month spend, which realistically most affiliates are going to self-fund (either with a product purchase or via an automated autoship order).
You can get a retail customer to purchase $25 of product each month to qualify, but given the complete lack of retail product information provided on the Elevacity website, driving retail sales doesn’t appear to be a core focus.
When you consider where Robert Oblon is coming from, Elevacity is a marked improvement over World Ventures.
It’s a much more expanded offering, with potential if the retail side of the business is given urgent attention.
Otherwise that potential is going to fall by the wayside, with Elevacity affiliates once again primarily receiving commissions for recruiting new affiliates.
This review is way inaccurate.
^^ Yet you failed to point out even one specific inaccuracy.
Not an Elevacity affiliate by any chance? Thought so.
What is the best way to give you the accurate and relevant information to better enlighten the history and more important, continuation of the mission? Would love to share.

PS. We’re not interested in spammy marketing or pseudo-compliance.
You mean the elevacity website is not accurate and relevant?
“continuation of the mission” – I guess dropping such pretentious crap would be a good start in trying to appear straightforward.
Why, is it DIFFERENT from the OFFICIAL website? What makes YOUR version more official? Or are you just offering the same **** but different spin?
why is it that it take so long to get a e mail to reset my password?
Is elevacity good investment roi or is just hipe, and why they were going up on google in 2014 and did a nose dive in 2015 & now is flat line.
Did pll lost interest in elevacity? why the last post was may, pls let me know before I spend mone. tks
Sounds like you’ve already answered most of your questions…
Wow, another failed Oblon scam, who would have guessed?
I really hate to tell you that I find him a very honorable man looking out for his people and I have read a lot of crap in my time and these negative comments are just that sorry enough sad.
I will add one thing my wife quit her job she is actually making money with the company with no stress able to work at home at her own convenience.
And I find these products up to excellent standards and use them and these products actually do exactly what they’re supposed to do #HatersWillHate
Cool. Here’s a cookie?
By selling retail memberships or recruiting affiliates?
Access to discounts isn’t a product. And the product packs are tied to recruitment soooooo…. pyramid scheme confirmed? #scammerswillscam
The real question is how they take the customers money and hold onto it for weeks and weeks and make getting through to CS an absolute nightmare.
To which the staff then can’t even answer ” where’s my order questions” if you ask for refund it 7-10 days to see back on Cc. Not joking.
When they get too many people pounding, they toss out a bogus FB post or occasionally email, that lets everyone feel like they are working on it and your order will ship by Friday at which then they will be caught up and moving forward, orders will be 24 hour out the door. This scam tech, buys them time but is mostly BS.
If they have product on Back order, they let you buy it anyway and hold up the rest of order unless you call, sit on hold a few hours and complain.
One of the features of the comp plan is to reach point where you get shares in the company. Ha, this is because Robert has no intention of being around that long. LOL.
This is a leader who has his reps buying samples to give away by the mass and wont’ pay commission on these purchases.
Recently they came up with a $7 sample program. Yes, we pay $7 per sample to give away. Its about 33 samples a kit. With a 50 sample monthly goal, its a couple hundred monthly we are encouraged spend. Insane.
I feel like the guy is a scientologist or something. For real. And go ahead and ask questions, there is no one listening. They all drank the Koolaid.
As for the product… ehh it would be a real easy sale if done correctly but the company is almost professionally trained to fail.
So it doesn’t really matter if product is good or even decent. Its not worth the 100’s they are charging rep to promote it and subsequently deal with the sharking they get in return.
