This review is going to be about a website called Reverse Commissions. What is Reverse Commissions? Is it a scam? Or a legitimate opportunity for you to invest your time, money and effort and earn income online? Is there any hidden catch? These are some of the questions that we will be focusing on in this short review.
Alright without further ado, let’s get things started…
Name: Reverse Commissions
Owner(s): Dale Payne Sizer & Calvin Harvey
Price: $25 – $500
What is Reverse Commissions all about?
Reverse Commissions is an online business opportunity created by both Dale Payne Sizer and Calvin Harvey. Their domain, https://reversecommissions.com was registered on the 11th of October 2015 and will expire exactly 4 years later.
One thing that really caught my attention was their earning claims.
They claimed that taking part in Reverse Commissions can help you make over $500,000 in less than 10 weeks. I believe most of you who saw those huge figures right at the top, instantly became excited and can’t wait to get started.
Frankly speaking, don’t get too excited and start building sandcastles in the air just yet. Throughout my online venture over the past few years, I have seen many programs similar to this that claimed to make you rich in a very short space of time. Most of these programs always failed to deliver and disappear very quickly after their launch.
I’m not too surprised if this will happen with Reverse Commissions even though their website has been registered for another 3 years.
The registration process is fairly quick. All you have to do is fill in the form with your necessary details and you will be able to enter the member’s area. Although creating your account is FREE, you still will not be able to move forward without spending money.
You will be forced to upgrade your account to either the starter package, basic package, advanced package or elite package first before you can see your back office which in my opinion is quite disappointing. As for myself, I would like to explore the member’s area first before I decide on committing to a program.

Reverse Commissions Compensation Plan
Reverse Commissions has a 4 level pay plan – $25, $100, $250, $500
You will pass up on the 2nd and 4th sale depending on the level you are currently at. For instance, if you join at the $500 level, you will get all the lower levels for FREE and you don’t have to pass up any sales on the lower levels. You will only have to pass up the $500 level ones.
Again, if you join at the $250 level, you will get the $25 and $100 levels for free and you are no required to pass up any. You will only have to pass up your 2nd and 4th $250 sale.
A simple breakdown of the compensation plan
- First person that directly joins under you – You keep the full commission (100%)
- The second person that directly joins under you – Pass your entire commission to your sponsor (0%)
- Third person that directly joins under you – You Keep the full commissions (100%)
- Fourth person that directly joins under you – Pask your entire commission to your sponsor (0%)
- Fifth person and onwards that directly joins under you – You keep the full commissions (100%)
How will you earn $500,000 in 10 Weeks?
For you to earn $500,000 in 10 weeks you will have to join in at the $500 level first and bring in people at the $500 level. You will then pass up your 2nd and 4th sale thus leaving you with 2 $500 sales, which adds up to a total commission of $1000.
- At week 1, you make $1000
- At week 2, Say your 2nd and 4th get 4 X $500 level members. You will receive their 2nd and 4th sale. so that’s 4 X $500 Sales = $2000
- Week 3, Those 4 will pass you 2 sales each so that’s 8 more $500 Sales = $4000
- Week 4, Those 8 will pass you 2 sales each so that’s 16 more $500 Sales = $8000
- Week 5, Those 16 will pass you 2 sales each so that’s 32 more $500 Sales = $16000
- Week 6, Those 32 will pass you 2 sales each so that’s 64 more = $32000
- Week 7, Those 64 will pass you 2 sales each so that’s 128 more = $64000
- Week 8, Those 128 will pass you up 2 sales each so that’s 256 more = $128000
- Week 9, Those 256 will pass you up 2 sales so that’s 512 more = $256,000
- Week 10, Those 512 will pass you up 2 sales so that’s 1,024 more = $512,000
So if you follow according to their plan, at the end of 10 weeks you will earn yourself over $500,000. Just a heads up, this isn’t my plan. This is what the owners have carved out for you to earn half a million in 10 weeks.
Honestly, it’s easier said than done. On paper it’s so simple, just get this number of people week in week out and you will be on course to half a million. But how many of you would be able to reach that target? Very, very little people in my opinion. Unless you are a seasoned marketer with a great deal of experience. If you are a newbie in the online space trying to make your first income online, this is no doubt an uphill task.
Furthermore, there are lots of factors that have to come into consideration. So in my opinion, this $500,000 in 10 weeks plan is not feasible. I doubt that some could even make $1000 in 10 weeks.
What you need to know here is whether or not you earn anything, the admins are already making money off you. Remember the admin fees? Yea… before you even start to make money you are already paying these guys a small some of money. Although it’s not a lot, it really adds up when it accumulates.
If you have not noticed, but these guys are indirectly asking you to join the $500 level so you can earn big commissions. At the same time, they can earn more admin fee from you. Think about it, $50 for each person. If 1000 people join within the next few days, the admins easily make over $50,000 for literally doing nothing at all apart from setting up this platform for you.
I don’t mind joining and paying for the opportunity provided it works. But all I can see here is nothing but hype and empty promises of making 500 grand in 10 weeks.
Other Issues With Reverse Commissions
(1) There is no actual product at all
If you thought that the product packages really mean anything to you, you’re wrong. Yes, they have a product. But those products are as good as nothing. You don’t need to join Reverse commissions and pay $25, $100, $250, $500 to get information on those products. You can do a simple Google search and you can get most of this information for FREE.
I’m sure that after you purchase the specific levels, no many will actually dig through and read word by word. Most will just think about trying to promote your referral link so people can join you can thus you can earn commissions. Let’s just take out the products for a moment. So what are we left with? Well, the Reverse Commissions membership itself.
In other words, the whole idea of Reverse Commissions is actually to promote the program to many people so that the admins can earn more admin fees from everyone.
(2) Owner don’t have a clean history
Dale Payne Sizer who is the owner of Reverse Commissions is also a founder of a previous cash gifting program called Infinity Profit system. IPS has attracted a lot of unwanted attention at the same time probably made Dale a fortune.
Currently, IPS has already been on the downfall ever since and I am not surprised that Dale and his counterpart has opened up a similar(new) opportunity in the name of Reverse Commissions to earn themselves more revenue.
So is Reverse Commissions a scam?
Although at the moment, even though they are not a scam, I am still not a big fan of them. One of the reasons is because I am not buying into the idea of anyone can make $500,000 in 10 weeks using this program. You probably would be able to make some money but definitely nowhere close to $500,000 or a breakthrough in your life.
I have participated in some similar programs in the past so I have a great understanding of what this is all about. If making money was that easy, why would the owners not use their own training and knowledge and get people to join Reverse Commissions so that they can earn full commissions instead of just the admin fee?
Of course, they already knew that it is not possible so that make use of people like you and me who wants to get rich to do the hard part, that is to recruit people.
Anyway, the final decision is up to you.
Final Verdict: Not a Scam, but Not Recommended
Safe & Solid Way To Make Money Online?
For those of you who are keen in generating good income online, I highly recommend that you start your own online business. This is a really safe and solid opportunity because you don’t depend on anybody but yourself. This is a totally different opportunity compared to Reverse Commissions.
So… what do I mean by online business?
There are many ways of running your very own online business. Selling your own products or running an e-commerce store are a few I can list from the top of my head. But the one that I have personally tried and am talking about is called Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate Marketing means promoting someone else’s products/services and earn commissions from it. There are countless of benefits for this approach which is the reason why I really love it.
Some of them include…
- You don’t need a huge capital to start
- Can be done from the comfort of your own home
- No need to physically get in contact with anyone. Everything is done through the internet.
- You don’t have to worry about what products to sell or storage space to put your products
It’s really not difficult to get started. All you need is an interest or passion. If you have one, you can build a business around it. I have been doing this for just over a year and have seen more than just great success with it. This opportunity has allowed me to quit my day job and run this entirely from home and the best part…? My income is almost 3 times of what I earned in the corporate world.
Though it is nice to hear… I have to tell you that this didn’t happen overnight. I have put in a great amount of effort to make this work. If you are expecting to make tons of money within a week or month, sorry, this isn’t something for you. You have to put in the effort and give yourself enough time to see success in this.
I know some of you might be thinking right now, how do I get started without any proper understanding or knowledge about Affiliate Marketing & starting an online business. Don’t worry, I have got you covered. I have been using this program called Wealthy Affiliate. It’s an online training platform that teaches you from scratch to building an affiliate marketing business.
