Success2Paradise Review: $2 three-tier cash gifting
There is no information on the Success2Paradise website indicating who owns or runs the business.
The Success2Paradise website domain (“success2paradise.com”) was registered on the 17th of May 2015, with a “Phonia Chamber” listed as the owner. A likely fake address in the US state of Kansas is also provided (incomplete street details and fake postcode).
The phrase “Phonia Chamber” only appears online in connection with the Success2Paradise domain registration.
This, combined with the obviously bogus address in Kansas is a pretty good indication the individual, as represented in the Success2Paradise domain registration, does not exist.
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 Success2Paradise Product Line
Success2Paradise has no retailable products or services, with affiliates only able to market affiliate membership with the company itself.
Once signed up, affiliates can then purchase $2 matrix positions.
Bundled with these positions are a series of advertising credits, as well as access to a “product vault” which Success2Paradise claims ‘contains more than 1000 top quality products‘.
No specific information about these products is provided.
The Success2Paradise Compensation Plan
The Success2Paradise compensation plan sees affiliates gift sums of money to each other through a three-tier matrix compensation structure.
The matrix size used in Success2Paradise is a 2×4, with each matrix having thirty positions in it to fill.
Note the matrix representation above is missing the fourth level (16 additional positions).
Positions in each matrix are filled when subsequent positions are purchased, either by newly recruited or existing Success2Paradise affiliates.
Commissions are paid by way of funds paid for each position gifted to the affiliate who recruited the affiliate paying.
Each matrix tier within the Success2Paradise compensation plan four buy-in tiers (the levels of the matrix itself), with gifting payments distributed as follows:
- level 1 (positions cost $2) – $4 received through two filled positions
- level 2 – $6 received through four positions, $10 gifted to upline
- level 3 – $30 received through eight positions, $50 gifted upline
- level 4 – $500 received through sixteen positions, $300 gifted to upline (participation fee for Phase 2, level 1)
- level 1 – $100 received through two filled positions, $500 gifted to upline
- level 2 – $1000 received through four positions, $1000 gifted to upline
- level 3 – $5000 received through eight positions, $3000 gifted to upline
- level 4 – $40,000 received through sixteen positions, $8000 gifted to upline (participation fee for Phase 3, level 1)
- level 1 – $10,000 received through two filled positions, $6000 gifted to upline
- level 2 – $25,000 received through four positions, $15,000 gifted to upline
- level 3 – $100,000 received through eight positions, $20,000 gifted to upline
- level 4 – $320,000 received through sixteen positions
Once a Phase 3 matrix is filled it expires. The only was a Success2Paradise affiliate can then continue in the opportunity is to buy another $2 Phase 1, level 1 position.
Affiliate membership with Success2Paradise is free, however an affiliate must purchase at least one $2 matrix position to participate in the income opportunity.
As such the defacto minimum cost of Success2Paradise affiliate membership is $2.
With nothing being marketed or sold to retail customers, and payments from affiliates made directly to affiliates who recruited them, Success2Paradise is little more than a three-tier cash gifting scheme.
The anonymous owner(s) of the scheme appear aware of the fact, with “but we have a product!” pseudo-compliance used to justify the scheme.
Marked “important!”, the following text in red appears on the Success2Paradise homepage:
Our program is NOT a gifting program because we actually have a product.
The reality is that advertising credits and whatever is in the offered “product library” (likely to be garbage PLR ebooks), has no bearing on Success2Paradise being a cash gifting scheme.
What defines it as such is affiliates signing up, paying 100% of their participation fee to the affiliate who recruited them, which in turn qualifies them to receive gifting payments from participants they recruit.
Were Success2Paradise affiliates actually purchasing a product and not participating in a cash gifting scheme, refunds would be wholly possible.
Instead, as per Success2Paradise’s “no refunds” refund policy:
We do not offer any kind of refunds because the nature of our program does not allow it.
The “nature of the program”? Cash gifting.
Somewhat curiously, Success2Paradise further misidentify their opportunity as an investment. The company’s Terms of Participation read:
Success2Paradise will continue to do profit sharing with you as long as people keep on investing in the system, either through reinvestment of their earned money, or by buying new ad packages.
I suppose you could classify the $2 buy in as an investment, subject to a theoretical $501,640 ROI, but the gifting aspect of the scheme is, in my opinion, more accurate for the purpose of classification.
In any event the numbers behind Success2Paradise are terrible. At $2 buy-ins, you’re looking at a minimum 250,820 individual gifting payments required.
Leave alone the fact that those positions will require sixty-two billion gifting payments to make it out of Phase 3.
As with all gifting schemes, once payments slow down and then cease at the bottom, those higher up stop receiving payments and the scheme collapses.
Due to the three-tier nature of Success2Paradise, losses upon collapse are maximized in favor of the admin.
Not only do they receive the lion’s share of gifting payments made with their pre-loaded position(s), but also funds tied to all stalled positions.
