Matrix Revenue Review: Twenty tier revenue-sharing
There is no information on the Matrix Revenue website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Matrix Revenue website domain (“matrixrevenue.com”) was registered on the 22nd of August 2015, 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 Matrix Revenue Product Line
Matrix Revenue has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market Matrix Revenue affiliate membership itself.
Once signed up, Matrix Revenue affiliates can invest funds and participate in the Matrix Revenue income opportunity.
Bundled with each Matrix Revenue investment are a series of advertising credits, which can be used to display advertising on the Matrix Revenue website itself.

The Matrix Revenue compensation plan sees affiliates invest in revenue-sharing and matrix cycler positions.

- Tier 20 – $200 investments with a 200% ROI
Note that 65% of all ROIs paid out must be reinvested back into Matrix Revenue.
20% of the 65% of the revenue-sharing ROI funds that must be reinvested back into Matrix Revenue, is allocated to a six-level matrix cycler.
The size of the matrices used in the cycler are 4×1 and 3×1, requiring four and three additional positions to be filled respectively.
Once the required additional positions are filled, the following cycle commissions are paid out:
- Matrix 1 (4×1, positions cost $5) – $4 commission paid out and cycles into Matrix 2
- Matrix 2 (3×1) – $8 commission paid out, provides a new Matrix 1 position and cycles into Matrix 3
- Matrix 3 (3×1) – $15 commission paid out, provides a new Matrix 1 position and cycles into Matrix 4
- Matrix 4 (3×1) – $20 commission paid out, provides a new Matrix 1 position and cycles into Matrix 5
- Matrix 5 (3×1) – $25 commission paid out, provides a new Matrix 1 position and cycles into Matrix 6
- Matrix 6 (3×1) – $40 commission paid out and provides two new Matrix 1 positions
Note that the following amounts at each matrix level are withheld for mandatory reinvestment back into Matrix Revenue:
- Matrix 1 – $2
- Matrix 2 – $3
- Matrix 3 – $3
- Matrix 4 – $5
- Matrix 5 – $10
- Matrix 6 – $34
A referral commission is also paid to the recruiting affiliate as follows:
- Matrix 1 – $1 paid as a referral commission and $1 withheld for mandatory reinvestment
- Matrix 2 – $2 paid as a referral commission and $1 withheld for mandatory reinvestment
- Matrix 3 – $3 paid as a referral commission and $2 withheld for mandatory reinvestment
- Matrix 4 – $5 paid as a referral commission and $3 withheld for mandatory reinvestment
- Matrix 5 – $5 paid as a referral commission and $5 withheld for mandatory reinvestment
- Matrix 6 – $10 paid as a referral commission and $20 withheld for mandatory reinvestment
Matrix Revenue pay affiliates 10% of any revenue-sharing positions purchased by their personally recruited affiliates (level 1).
Withdrawal Funds Withheld
Matrix Revenue affiliates are permitted to withdraw 200% of the total amount of funds they have invested without any additional restrictions (other than the mandatory reinvestment amounts detailed above).
After 200% is reached, subsequent withdrawal requests will see 40% of funds requested set aside for mandatory reinvestment (this is in addition to the other reinvestment conditions).
Joining Matrix Revenue
Affiliate membership with Matrix Revenue is free, however affiliates must invest at least $1 if they wish to participate in the MLM income opportunity.
As such the defacto minimum cost of Matrix Revenue affiliate membership is $1.
With nothing being marketed or sold to retail customers, Matrix Revenue simply shuffle newly invested funds around to pay off existing investors.
This fits the definition of a Ponzi scheme.
The ruse behind the scheme is the familiar ad-credits model, which sees advertising used as a front for Ponzi fraud.
Logic would dictate that if indeed advertising credits were being sold, that unused credits would attract a refund.
Instead, as per Matrix Revenue’s refund policy:
Do you offer refunds?
A: No. We do not offer refunds.
If you are found to have put in a dispute or request a refund with ANY of our processors your account will be banned permanently.
You will also forfeit all funds and earnings associated with your account.
The reason Matrix Revenue can’t offer refunds is because the second new funds are invested in the system, they are used to pay off existing investors. Thus it is the investment positions that are in actuality being marketed and sold here.
As with all Ponzi schemes, once new investment dries up Matrix Revenue will find itself unable to meet its advertised ROI obligations.
This will first manifest itself by way of the revenue-sharing position ROIs declining, which will coincide with matrix positions taking longer and longer to cycle.
The backend will continue to rumble along for a while after funds have been depleted, with affiliates only becoming aware of the collapse once withdrawal requests are rejected (or ignored).
As is typical of matrix cycler schemes, expect a large number of preloaded positions from the admin(s) of the scheme.
This guarantees the admin walks away with the majority of funds invested (the higher revenue-sharing positions pay out larger ROIs), with everybody else losing out.
