Wings Mobile fails to disclose ownership or executive information on its website.

Wings Mobile’s marketing material cites Antonio Milio as its founder and CEO.

Milio first appeared on BehindMLM back in 2021, as CEO of the BitWings Ponzi scheme.

Bitwings marketed itself as a division of Wings Mobile, built around the BWN ERC-20 shit token. Since our 2021 review, Bitwings has collapsed.

According to his social media profiles, Milio is based out of Spain. This tracks with Wings Mobile primarily targeting Spanish-speaking countries. Wings Mobile’s website also defaults to Spanish.

As of October 2023, SimilarWeb currently tracks top sources of traffic as Peru (9%), Belize (7%), the US (6%), Vietnam (6%) and Colombia (6%)

In our BitWings review, we did note Wings Mobile but were unable to research due to hidden compensation details.

Having sourced a copy of Wings Mobile’s compensation plan in English, we’re now able to publish a review.

Read on for a full review of Wings Mobile’s MLM opportunity.

It appears the vast majority of Wings Mobile products are not available to buy for retail customers.

Wings Mobile’s Compensation Plan

A Matching Bonus and Founder Pool is also available.

Along with their respective qualification criteria, they are as follows:

  3. Director – generate 3000 GV a month (min 6000 GV each quarter to maintain), alternative qualification = generate 1500 GV within 45 days of signing up
  4. Team Director – generate 7500 GV a month (min 15,000 GV each quarter to maintain), alternative qualification = generate 3000 GV within 45 days of signing up

  12. Diamond President 4 Star – generate 2,000,000 GV a month (min 4,000,000 GV each quarter to maintain)

GV stands for “Group Volume”. GV is generated by fees paid by directly and indirectly recruited Wings Mobile affiliates.

Note that up to 60% of required GV can come from any one recruitment leg.

Retail Commissions

Wings Mobile pays a 25% commission on products sold to retail customers through a replicated online storefront.

Wings Mobile pay residual retail commissions 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.

Wings Mobile pays residual retail commissions down seven unilevel team levels, based on rank:

  • Dealers and Team Dealers earn 4% on level 1 (personally recruited affiliate retail sales), and 1% on levels 2 and 3
  • Directors and Team Directors earn 4% on level 1 and 1% on levels 2 to 4
  • Regional Presidents earn 4% on level 1, 1% on levels 2 to 4 and 5% on level 5
  • National Presidents earn 4% on level 1, 1% on levels 2 to 4, 5% on level 5 and 1% on level 6
  • International Presidents and higher earn 4% on level 1, 1% on levels 2 to 4, 5% on level 5 and 1% on levels 6 and 7

Referral Commissions

Wings Mobile pays a referral commission on fees paid by recruited affiliates.

Referral commission rates vary from 10% to 46% of fees paid:

  • Dealers earn a 10% referral commission rate
  • Team Dealers earn a 20% referral commission rate
  • Directors earn a 25% referral commission rate
  • Team Directors earn a 30% referral commission rate
  • Regional Presidents earn a 33% referral commission rate
  • National Presidents earn a 36% referral commission rate
  • International Presidents earn a 39% referral commission rate
  • Diamond Presidents earn a 41% referral commission rate
  • Diamond President 1 Stars earn a 43% referral commission rate
  • Diamond President 2 Stars earn a 44% referral commission rate
  • Diamond President 3 Stars earn a 45% referral commission rate
  • Diamond President 4 Stars earn a 46% referral commission rate

Note that I believe referral commissions are coded. This means that higher ranked Wings Mobile affiliates earn the difference between referral commissions paid out to lower ranked affiliates.

Matching Bonus

Wings Mobile pays a 30% Matching Bonus on commissions paid to personally recruited affiliates.

Note that this is reduced to 20% if the recruited affiliate reaches the same rank as the affiliate who recruited them.

Founder Pool

Wings Mobile funds the Founder Pool with:

  • 10% of company-wide revenue
  • 2% of invoices paid by retail customers and affiliates and
  • 1% of billing fees paid by retail customers and affiliates

The Founder Pool is split into two smaller 50% pools, which is paid out to Wings Mobile affiliates who sign up with a Golden Founder or Diamond Founder membership.

Note the following additional qualification criteria also applies:

  • generate 200 PV in Wings Mobile product sales and
  • have personally referred five Wings Mobile customers (can be retail customers or recruited affiliates)

Joining Wings Mobile

Wings Mobile affiliate membership ranges from $369 to to $22,999

  • Starter – $369
  • Starter Pro – $619
  • Golden Founder – $1179
  • Diamond Founder – $2319
  • Wings Store Base – $2299
  • Wings Store Corner Light – $4599
  • Wings Store Corner Full – $6899
  • Wings Store Full Store – $22,999

Although not explicitly clarified for the store memberships, I believe the primary difference between the tiers is bundled Wings Mobile product(s).

Wings Mobile Conclusion

Wings Mobile is supposed to be an MLM company selling electronics to consumers, preferably retail customers.

The ruse falls apart upon consideration the products aren’t available for sale.

Furthermore based on provided product details, Wings Mobile’s range appears to be custom branded dropshipped products from China.

This is to be expected (designing consumer electronics is beyond any MLM company), but does put a big question mark on Wings Mobile as a retail viable business.

Availability aside, the first thing you see on Wings Mobile’s website are cell phones – dating back to 2020.

While it’s true cell phone innovation has somewhat stagnated, selling new almost four-year old phones isn’t a good look.

I found similar looking OEM cell phones on Alibaba, but I figure I can’t find the exact models because even dropshippers aren’t selling “new” three year old phones.

This leaves us with Wings Mobile affiliates paying hundreds to thousands of dollars in membership fees, which I believe is the primary revenue driver for the business.

The more a Wings Mobile affiliate spends, purportedly the more products they gain access to.

In value of the investment will be adapted in a variety of Wings mobile products as contracted.

Don’t know how that works with the vast majority of products seemingly being unavailable.

In any event, what we have here is a classic pyramid scheme. Wings Mobile affiliates sign up and pay a fee. Said fee generates commissions, with retail being insignificant window dressing.

One can imagine Wings Mobile collapsing is what prompted Antonio Milio to dive into MLM crypto fraud with BitWings.

As with all MLM pyramid schemes, once recruitment dries up so too will paid commissions.

Math guarantees the majority of participants in pyramid schemes lose money.
