Just Ten Time Review: Revshare & matrix pyramid Ponzi hybrid
There is no information on the Just Ten Time website indication who owns or runs the business.
The Just Ten Time website domain (“justtentime.com”) was registered on the 19th of July 2016, however the domain registration is set to private.
As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money.
The Just Ten Time Product Line
Just Ten Time has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Just Ten Time affiliate membership itself.
Once signed up Just Ten Time affiliates can purchase “revshare packages” and participate in the attached income opportunity.
Bundled with each revshare package are a series of advertising credits, which can be used to display advertising on the Just Ten Time website.
The Just Ten Time Compensation Plan
The Just Ten Time compensation plan pays affiliates to recruit new affiliates. It also offers affiliates participation in a matrix cycler and revenue sharing.
Just Ten Time affiliates are paid $5 per paid affiliate they personally recruit.
Each Just Ten Time affiliate passes up the first two recruitment commissions they earn to the affiliate who recruited them.
In turn, every affiliate they recruit passes up their first two $5 commissions. This passing up extends down a theoretical infinite depth, with every new affiliate passing up their first two recruitment commissions.
The monthly $24.99 fee all Just Ten Time affiliates pay purchases them a position in a 7×7 matrix.
A 7×7 matrix has seven positions on the first level, with the second level generated by splitting each of the seven positions into another seven positions each (49 positions).
Subsequent levels of the matrix are generated in the same manner, with a complete 7×7 matrix housing 960,799 positions.
Positions in the matrix are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of Just Ten Time affiliates, with the company paying $1 a month per position filled.
Note that as matrix commissions are paid out of monthly affiliate fees, the $1 commission is only paid out on matrix positions of affiliates who pay the fee.
Just Ten Time affiliates invest in revenue packages which are tied to a nineteen-tier matrix cycler.
The size of matrices used in the Just Ten Time cycler is unclear.
Regardless, here’s how payments within the cycler work out:
- Feeder – invest $17 at the Feeder tier, receive an $8.50 commission and cycle into the Tin tier
- Tin (can be directly invested in for $50) – receive a $25 commission and cycle into the Brass tier

Joining Just Ten Time
Affiliate membership with Just Ten Time is $24.99 a month.
Participation in the revenue sharing component of the compensation plan requires an additional minimum investment of $17.
The bigger your downline is the faster you make money.
Just Ten Time essentially functions as a two-tier pyramid scheme with a Ponzi component tacked on.
The recruitment commissions paid out are chain-recruitment. You sign up as a Just Ten Time affiliate, pay a fee and get paid when others do the same.
The matrix commissions are again tied to recruitment, paying Just Ten Time affiliates $1 per affiliate recruited into their matrix.
Both commissions are paid out of affiliate fees and stop if recruited affiliates cease paying said fees.
The revenue sharing is basically another matrix cycler operating as a Ponzi scheme. Just Ten Time affiliates invest $17 or more on the promise a ROI of up to $115,708.50.
That’s at least 6807 $17 payments entering through the bottom of the matrix, per position paid the full advertised ROI.
Needless to say that’s not going to happen for the vast majority of positions purchased.
Despite the blatant investment nature of Just Ten Time’s MLM offering, the company claims it is not an “investment program”.
This is not an investment program, no company can predict future sales of any product, for this reason there is no guarantee of earnings from the rebates outside of a member or members of their downline selling enough ad packages to others to force their own revshares to cycle through in such a case the revenue would be guaranteed.
This is pseudo-compliance, with neither the prediction of future sales or ROI guarantee being the reason Just Ten Time operates as a Ponzi scheme.
The use of newly invested funds to pay off existing investors is why Just Ten Time qualifies as a Ponzi, with this point not addressed by the company.
The adcredits bundled with revenue sharing positions are neither here nor there, again serving only as pseudo-compliance. The SEC has clearly stated that bundling adcredits to Ponzi investment schemes does not legitimize financial fraud.
As with all Ponzi and pyramid schemes, recruitment of new affiliates dropping off will starve the scheme of funds and bring on a collapse.
This will present itself by way of Just Ten Time’s matrices slowing down, before stalling altogether. This sees funds attached to uncycled matrix positions lost to the anonymous Just Ten Time admin.
More than likely, most Just Ten Time affiliates will pay more in membership fees than they make in commissions.
