ProList Review: $9.95 recruitment, paid up 50 levels
There is no information on the ProList website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The ProList website domain (“prolist.bz”) was registered in January 2011 and lists a Daniel Dion of “GenSoft” (Genius Softwares) as the owner. An address in the Canadian province of Quebec is also provided.
Possibly due to language barriers, I was unable to track an MLM history for Dion either as an affiliate or in corporate.
Read on for a full review of the ProList MLM business opportunity.
The ProList Product Line
ProList has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market affiliate membership to the opportunity itself.
The ProList Compensation Plan
The ProList compensation plan revolves around affiliates signing up and paying $9.95.
This $9.95 is then paid upline through 50 levels of recruitment using 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 of these level 1 affiliates go on to recruit new affiliates of their own, 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.
When an affiliate joins ProList, they are required to view fifty website advertisements supplied by the company. After this they are required to pay $9.95 to participate in the compensation plan.
Using the unilevel compensation structure, their payment is distributed fifty levels upline. In turn, the affiliate now qualifies to receive payments from affiliates below them, paid out through fifty levels of recruitment via the unilevel.
Affiliate membership to ProList is initially free, however after visiting company-supplied websites an affiliate must pay $9.95 to participate in the ProList compensation plan.
This payment qualifies an affiliate to receive commissions from those who join after them.
With no retail activity to speak of and all commissions paid out on the recruitment of affiliates, ProList operates as a recruitment-driven pyramid scheme.
An affiliate joins, views company-supplied website advertisements (likely to be marketing similar income opportunities) and then pays their $9.95 participation fee.
This fee is paid to those who joined before, and in turn the affiliate now collects commissions from those who join after (either via direct or indirect recruitment).
Once the recruitment dies down, ProList’s commissions come to a standstill and the system collapses.
