You probably found a company called JIFU, and you want to know if it’s worth trying the discounted travel packages and also the opportunity to make money. Is that true, or is Jifu travel a scam?
Don’t worry. You are in the right place that will solve your questions/problems before I do this though I want to congratulate you for taking the time to research and trying to find a legit way to make money.
JIFU Review Summary
Product Name: JIFU
Price: $50 one-time fee $25/mo – $1000 one time – $120/mo
Recommended: YES & NO
Jifu is a multi-level marketing (MLM) company in the travel niche. They offer discount travel packages and also gives you the opportunity to make money from it. Either you recruit others to do the same thing, or you promote the retail products to make money. From my perspective, JIFU is good when it comes to discounts but not a good money-making opportunity. Although a few people might call this a pyramid scheme, I believe that this company is not a pyramid scheme, even if it has some elements of a pyramid scheme. The company is also legit, and the owners have a long history with MLM’s.
Before we begin with JIFU review, I want to tell you that my reviews are always unbiased.
Without further due, let’s begin.
What Is Jifu
Jifu is an MLM company in the travel niche, and it offers the ability to its users to get discounted travel packages and/or memberships, but also it gives you the opportunity to make money within their platform by selling vacations and most importantly by recruiting others to do the same.
According to what I’ve seen with similar companies like iBuumerang, Inteletravel and Evolution Travel. The travel niche is a huge niche that people are interested in (because who doesn’t want to go on vacation cheap?), but it’s hard to find a program that you can make money with.
Based on the date I found on Whois.com, Jifu registered on 2000-03-22. The thing that bothers me the most is that whois.com says that the domain was registered in 2000, but Jifu was founded in late 2018!
How Jifu Works
There are not too many ways to explain this because you probably already know how it works, but in case you don’t know, let me explain.
Once you become a member of Jifu and decide to travel, you will find discounted packages to travel to the destination you desire. How is this possible? Let me give you an example.
Let’s say that most of the time, airline companies have some empty seats, but the plane has to leave at a specific date. No matter if they have 1 seat closed and 99 empty seats (or the opposite), the plane will cost the same amount of money to travel, right?
The airline knows that (better than we do, to be honest) and what they do is to basically contact all these companies like Jifu so that the seats will no longer stay empty.
But the difference here is that the airline company will give it at a lower price just to sell it so they won’t lose money. I bet you know what companies will do next…they will sell it to you.
Honestly, I’m ready to buy anything if it’s cheaper than it’s the actual value. It’s not illegal. It’s not a risky thing that you might lose your money or whatever you might think. It’s just cheaper so that the company/ies) will not lose their money.
If you want to know if and how to make money with Jifu (for the affiliate members), we will talk later about that. For now, this is how the company works.
Jifu Travel Products
I’ll try to keep it short because you already know what Jifu Products are. I mean it’s like a “travel agency” we know what to expect, right?
JIFU Travel offers discounted travel packages as its main product, and they also have a booking engine. They offer hotel discounts, resorts and basically everything you probably might need.
So, if you decide to join and buy their membership (see pricing section) even as a member or even as an affiliate, you might want to know their compensation plan.
JIFU Travel Compensation Plan
In case you don’t want to read the “compensation plan,” I found a video on YouTube (channel’s name: John Spitaliere) that will explain it to you.
Now if you are like me and prefer to read (it’s rare to find someone that prefers that but who knows!…) let me tell you what you should know.
I’ll start by saying that JIFU’s Travel compensation plan is nothing “unique” or different from other MLM companies that I reviewed. So, if you had any experience with a preview MLM company and read its compensation plan, then you won’t have any problem understanding this one.
If you are an affiliate member, you have to understand this one first. Every time you sell a membership to customers, you will learn $25 for every sale that you make.
If they stay for more than a month, you will receive the recurring commission of $5 every month that the customer paid the monthly membership.
Ok, this is probably the best way to make money. In fact, in 99.9% of MLM’s this is the best way to make money, so don’t get hyped. When you recruit others and “build a team” that will also promote JIFU Travel’s, and basically they will buy a package (again, see pricing section), you will earn a commission based on the package they bought.
Actually, you will receive “commissionable points.”
In my opinion, this is what I call “Recruiting 2.0”. Yeah, it sounds awful and cliche, but this is the key factor that you have to understand. You need to recruit (see? recruiting 2.0) and maintain at least 2 members (basically create left and right leg).
What that means is that these 2 members will recruit others and the list goes on…with the recruitment.
Matching Bonus Commissions.
And now, a more updated version…”Recruiting 3.0.”(I just made this up again) Just kidding, Sometimes, when you see the same thing again and again, you need to spice things up a bit to keep yourself from getting bored, right?
So, what match bonus means.
We have the “levels” or “legs.” They also called “unilevel.” If you don’t know what “levels” are it’s basically
The people you recruit (level 1)
The people that level 1 recruited (level 2)
The people that level 2 recruited (level 3)
I believe that you already understood the short version, but just in case you didn’t
The 1st level is basically the people that you personally recruited and added to the platform.
The 2nd level of your uni-level compensation plan is the people that the 1st level recruited.
The 3rd level is the people that (yeap, you guessed it) got recruited from the 2nd level.
You get the point… If you want to learn more about the compensation plan, you can find it here.
How To Make Money
I know that you are probably here just for this. So, without further due, let’s begin!
The 3 main ways are Retail Commissions, Recruitment Commissions, and a few other bonuses. If you want my opinion, recruitment is the best way that JIFU has to offer (like any other MLM).
I’ve already explained above what is retail, and recruitment commissions so let’s breakdown the costs and how to earn.
First of all, we have 4 “Affiliate Packs.”
Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond.
If you are not interested in being an affiliate and you just want to be a simple member who wants to travel, then let me tell you (and save you some time) that this is not for you.
Once you decide to join one of these affiliate packs, you can recruit others that they will buy (and pay) these affiliate packs to receive commissions.
Obviously, these affiliate packs it’s not just a random price for members to buy. Higher membership equals to higher income potential, better commissions, etc.
JIFU Travel Pricing
Ok, I know I mentioned it a few times (see pricing section). So, if you read the whole post, congrats, you finally made it. If you don’t know what I’m talking about (or writing to be precise), then you probably skipped many things from this post.
Let’s see the prices.
I’ll begin with the people that just want to be members, and tell them right away that the fees/membership that they have to pay is a one-time fee of $50 for the first month and $25 every month for as long as you want to stay a member. Yeap, that’s it.
Now for affiliates, the cost is higher than you might expect. As I mentioned above, JIFU has 4 Affiliate Packs.
Silver – You must pay $100 to join and also $30 per month (as a monthly membership)
Gold– $400 To join and also $40 per month (as a monthly membership)
Platinum –$600 to join and also $80 per month (as a monthly membership)
Diamond – $1000 to join and also $120 per month(as a monthly membership)
They also have something that they call “Entry Affiliate Pack,” which is basically a $40 annual fee, with a $10 monthly fee. The catch here is that this membership is limited to retail and recruitment commissions.
You can only create up to 2 levels. You won’t be eligible for anything after the 2nd level.
But let’s be honest, at least they offer you something cheaper which I really appreciate. It’s not something that you see often. And in fact, if you reach the 2nd level, that means that you will probably make money to pay for an actual membership.
GOOD VS BAD
- Normal Prices
- The owners know what they are doing
- Probably Worth Traveling with JIFU
- If you want to make money, the success rate is very low!
- Affiliate memberships are a bit expensive
- Very competitive
- Nothing unique with the compensation plan
- Looks like a pay to play scheme
JIFU Travel Owners
As you probably saw at the beginning of this JIFU Travel review (if you didn’t go and see the pictures from whois.com), JIFU Travel is based out of Idaho, and the founders are Jeffrey and Bradley Boyle.
I have to admit that they have a lot of experience with MLM businesses, and JIFU Travel is not the first one that they created.
According to my research, the first business they created was Jus International (in 2006) by Jeffrey Boyle and made President of this company Bradley until 2009.
In 2011 Jus International changed completely the way it used to operate and literally stopped being an MLM and focused only on its retail with the name Havvn.
In 2013 Jeffrey was appointed CEO and President of Sanki Global until 2015. Then Jifu was founded in late 2018.
Lastly, I want to mention that Jeffrey Boyle also markets himself as an MLM trainer and coach others to create a long-term business(es), including the “Boyle network.”
What Are Users Saying About JIFU Travel?
99% Of the time, I create this section when I have proof of people talking about the specific business I’m writing about. Good or bad, I post them here (in the form of a picture) to show exactly (and unbiased) what I’ve found.
To be honest, I spend hours trying to find something to show you, and I didn’t find anything. The business is not accredited with BBB, and that means that we can find reviews of people that use/d the “product.”
To be completely fair and transparent, I couldn’t find anything good or bad about the company.
What I’ve found is that a few people used “Reddit” in order to promote the company with a preposterous way and people just “understood” that they want to promote an MLM company… You can go and read them by yourself.
I created this section even If I had almost anything just to show the techniques that people use to promote an MLM company and the reaction of the people when they see one (even if it’s legit)
With so many scams out there, people are mad with MLM companies and avoid them no matter what. This is the reason that making money with an MLM is so hard, and 98% of people literally fail to make money.
I want to share my thoughts with you and tell you that sometimes even if a company it’s legit people the use st*pid ways to promote it makes it look like a scam, and this is one of the reasons I believe that people hate MLM’s. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like MLM companies, and I definitely don’t want to join, this is just my thoughts and opinion(s).
Ugly Truths Revealed
1. Very Similar To Other Companies
Yeap, exactly what the headline says. The similar compensation plan and also the way that JIFU operates makes me think like I see any other MLM company in the travel niche. There is nothing unique that will attract the users to stay while they can find so many companies that offers almost the same things.
2. The Compensation Plan Is Confusing
20+ pages to explain the ways that people can make money and basically what that means is “explaining how your company works” is awful. But I believe there is a reason for this.
Usually, complicated plans are for people who can’t completely understand them (to be precise, I mean how they actually work and what everything inside the compensation plan means), and thus they lure them into joining.
I’m not saying that JIFU Travel does this, I’m saying that 20+ pages are just too much.
3. The Price Is “Ok” But Bad At The Same Time
Let me explain. In my opinion, they shouldn’t have a “One-time fee + Monthly membership.” They should only have one of them. If you ask why, no worries, I’ve got your back!
Let’s say that you want to begin with the silver affiliate pack. It makes sense, right? As a new member, you want to test it first before upgrading to other affiliate packs and potentially make it to Diamond.
Silver Affiliate Pack will cost you $100 + $30 per month, which means that you will spend $460 in one year. You need to make approximately 19 sales (recruit 19 members) in order to “cover” your expenses.
And if you are like me and don’t want to bother every member of your family and make them hate you for trying to sell them something they don’t want, you will probably spend money on different online ads with the potential to make a few sales.
But ads are not free! So yeah, you have more expenses. Even if you don’t make sales, you will still pay month after month!
Are You Tired Of Scams?
Is JIFU Travel A Pyramid Scheme
Well, no… It’s not a pyramid scheme. It has a few elements for sure, but we can’t call it a pyramid scheme.
The difference between an MLM and a Pyramid scheme is that pyramid schemes don’t have the retail system, and basically, the only way to make money is by recruiting others.
Although the compensation plan of JIFU might have some elements, they still have the retail system in which people can just utilize the discount travel packages and save money.
This is not the only reason why all MLM’s are not Pyramid schemes, but this is usually the most common one.
Is JIFU A Scam
NO! Jifu is a legit company that markets discounted travel packages. Even with the complicated compensation plan, the “pyramid scheme” elements, and everything else we talked about, no, it’s not a scam.
I’ll be completely transparent and tell you that in my opinion, don’t use the company to make money, but if you want to travel, you might want to be a member and get discounts. From my perspective, they look good enough.
Lastly, Something that it’s very important for me, is that we know the owners of the company, we know their backgrounds, etc. You probably won’t believe me, but you don’t know how common it is for companies to hide the owners’ names for unknown reasons.!
