Karatbars Review

By

Karatbars id the newest “Fad” that has landing within the precious metals mlm niche. I would like to give my thoughts on this program as I feel I am more than qualified with almost 8 years of day in day out experience in the silver and gold mlm arena.

Karatbars Review

As the CO-Founder of ISN Coins I have had the pleasure of developing this industry, consulting the industry for multiple companies and becoming a respected name among my peers. Here are some of my thoughts for all who are interested to learn.

First I want everyone to understand that trying to create a network marketing company/ affiliate program with the “bullion” product as the main product is all but impossible. The reason why is self evident. The MARGINS don’t exists to create a viable payout from the bullion product. Karatbars is built on the concept of simply saving in Karatbars and showing others how to do the same every month. 1 Gram, 2 1/2 Gram or 5 gram gold bars are the product available for the monthly auto ship purchase. Here is what they look like.

In order to understand this concept of creating proper margins to create a real opportunity I want you to pause to watch this video before moving forward. This is very important because in my opinion this is the difference between a company that the regulators respect and one that they with shut down.

Now that you understand why Bullion can does not have the ability to pay out a life changing residual income the question then is  how are people in Karatbars actually earning income. It does not take a math professor to figure this one out. All You have to look is look at the Karatbars Compensation Plan for 5 minutes to see that the money is not made from the sale of the Karatsbars but from the constant “Recruiting” of others into the program.

For you to see this we must look at what is called the “dual team system”. This is the Bynary part of the Karatbars compensation plan that is clearly a multi level structure. here is an image of the dual team system. First this all starts with you purchasing a “Package”. The packages range from 135 Euro at the Bronze level  up over 1500 Euro + for the VIP package and even more.  All of the packages and products translate into “UNITS” and these units are what allow you to cycle into bonuses in the Karatbats Bynary. So here is the simple question… what does it take to cycle in the bynary and how are the “Units” paid out that allows you to cycle into the bonuses?

Below is an illustration of the Dual Team System and what it takes to cycle into bonuses.

As you can see when you accumulate 25 “UNITS” on one leg and 50 on the other you cycle into a bonus and the amount of income you earn when you cycle is determined by what “Package” you have purchased Silver, Gold or VIP. This is a red FLAG right away. This type of system forces people to buy larger and larger packages in order to not loose potential commissions and is not a legit way of structuring an mlm from my understanding. So members are ever encouraged to spend more money to “UPGRADE” to the more expensive packages in hopes of getting paid more commissions.

I want to speak on FOUR big key questions.

1. Where do the “REAL UNITS” come from in order to cycle people in the bynary

2. What do you actually receive for the initial “Package” purchases

3. How many “Units” are payed out on the purchase of the 1 gram, 2 1/2 gram or 5 gram karatbars which are supposed to be the monthly auto ships. This is the WHOLE point of the Karatbars company is for people to save in gold every month. So lets see if everyone just purchasing Karatbars can actually cycle people into the bonuses.

4. Physical Delivery of the Karatbars. What the turn time on delivery is and the cost of shipping which always adds to the bottom line of your precious metals purchases.

So where do the Units come from? From the continual sales of Silver, Gold and Vip Packages! Rather than on the sale of Gold Karatbars. This is not a model for a sustainable residual income whatsoever and is also a regulators dream for a shutdown. You could never sustain your Karatbars business without continual new “Signups” this is again a classic pyramid scheme structure.

Taking Physical delivery of you Gold, How long it takes to receive and the cost…. Because if you don’t hold it you don’t own it! these Q & a answer are from the Karatbars website and raise a few concerns for me.

Question: From the SecurLog vault, what are the normal shipping times to my home?
Answer: Shipping times will vary depending on the country you live in.  Normal shipping times from SecurLog will average approximately 3 to 5 days within Europe and 7 to 14 days for International deliveries. In general, once your order & payment have been acknowledged at Karatbars, the entire delivery process will take approximately 4 to 6 weeks.

Question: When is delivery of my entire gold order possible?
Answer: The delivery of your gold purchase will depend on your purchase agreement.
One-time purchase Plan:  Orders of at least 10 grams may be delivered upon request, shipping fees will apply.
Purchase Plan:   Your entire delivery is possible when you have purchased at least 100 grams of gold at a gold price of more than 50,- € per gram.  
Please Note:  In the event of gold being priced lower than 50,- € per gram, you must meet the 5.000,- € minimum for entire delivery.

Question: If I choose a Purchase plan and I pay monthly 50,- € or 100,- € , when can I request delivery of my gold?
Answer: The first 25 \”1-gram-goldbars\” will be stored and held in reserve as lump-sum-bars for you.  Furthermore, you have the opportunity to request delivery with every single gold bar from the 26th gold bar and upwards.  The first 25 gold bars will remain in storage until you have reached 100 gold bars commitment in your gold account.  The first 25 bars which were held in reserve, will be released once you have met the 100 unit gold bar commitment.

Please correct me if i’m wrong but from what i’m reading here people are buying Karatbars and NOT taking Physical delivery of the gold until some Future time! This is not recommended at all. They don’t have the gold until its ordered, then they don’t ship the gold until a certain amount has been accumulated. Now don’t get me wrong if that is what you want to do its a free country but with a company taking in that amount of PACKAGE MONEY and then not delivering the gold until a future date is a recipe for bad things to happen.
