Too many people think that the Dubli Network has been shutdown, but this business has actually risen from the dead and did a complete overhaul.
In this Dubli Network review, I want to show you what makes this business a scam (or not), and whether or not you should dump your money into this “free” MLM business.
You have probably seen nothing but positive reviews about this program, but I want to let the truth be known behind this network marketing business.
Most people think the Dubli Network is a scam, but I have a very unique take on this business and most especially because I could care less about any network marketing business for that matter.
With that being said, I want to give you a completely unbiased review and tell you whether or not Dubli is a scam.

First Things First
I want to get a couple of things out of the way, just because most people don’t really understand certain things about Dubli. For those of you that are completely lost, here is what this business is all about.
The company comes with two sides of their operation. One which is focused on the Dubli shopping side of things and then you have the Dubli Network, which is a whole different level of the business.
The Dubli Shopping Mall – This is a completely different business and is one that I really liked. This is about saving money with their program and nothing more. You will see more later in this review.
The Dubli Network – This is where things get a little tricky and also a bit costly. Most people don’t see this side of things just yet, but it will arise eventually. With that aside, here’s more on Dubli.
Dubli is a global marketing company that offers people the opportunity to make money off of things that people are already buying, from places like Walmart and Target just to name a few. Let me just throw in apple, because there is no where that gives you a discount from them and not even they give discounts.
This company is a multilevel marketing business, even if they don’t claim to be or proclaim how much they can’t stand MLM. It is a network marketing business, which comes with a comp plan just like any other MLM out there.
However, it is not a lotions and potions type of MLM business, because there is no actual product that they use to promote the business. They promote discounts, savings, and provide cash back for a lot of the big name retailers that you are already using to get your goodies.
I thought this company was some kind of knockoff from Wakeup Now, but come to find out that they were formed way before Wakeup now was even born! I am no fan of MLM, and yes this is a multilevel marketing business.
How Dubli Works
Dubli used to be some kind of auction site, which focused on bidding on certain products to get it for a cheaper price, but has now changed their whole approach to their business platform just to adapt to the always changing ways of the internet and work from home businesses.
Before, you would be given 25 Dubli credits which you could use to bid on the products offered within the Dubli Shopping Mall. This only applied to the VIP members and actually had a pretty interesting plan from what I’ve seen.
Whenever someone clicked on a product, the price would go down $.20. If you had 20 members click on that product, it would give you $4 off. That may not sound a lot, but with thousands of people online, that thing will drop really fast.
If no one bought that product when the bid is over and you have the lowest bid, you will get that item for whatever your bid was. Say bye bye to bidding though, because that is no longer apart of their business.
Now, Dubli focuses on just their cash back and their network marketing business, which I will discuss later on in this review, because that is another animal on its own.
I think it was the whole bidding thing that drove this company to the ground but now they have a very simple game plan and now they are backed by some of the best in the biz, we might have a decent program on our hands.
The Dubli Toolbar
This feature is what makes Dubli so unique. I immediately had to signup, just to give this little tool a test and I must say, it is pretty sweet.
This toolbar takes about 10 seconds to install and it is one of those set it and forget it type of things. Now when you do a search for whatever it is that you are looking for, this toolbar will automatically popup, showing you how much you can save.
If you’re on the actual site, it will popup on the top and remind you that you can save with Dubli by shopping at whatever store you choose. Pretty neat if you ask me and you can actually signup for free.
How You Make Money Purchasing Products
This is probably the biggest thing anyone would want to know about when deciding to join something like Dubli. How in the world do you make money?!
The company is partnered with thousands of online retailers that give you discounts when you buy things online. The savings are actually pretty decent, even as a free member, but here’s where it gets interesting.
This is actually a very unique business and is actually something that got my attention. When you introduce someone to Dubli, you then get paid for any and every product that they purchase online, whether they know it or not.
Just from using the cash back feature that Dubli has, you can make money from every purchase that your referral makes. What’s pretty cool too is that when they refer people, you can make money from them too.
You also get $20 from every person you refer to Dubli that becomes a VIP member, which costs them $49. It used to be $99 but I have no idea why it said $49.
How You Make Money – The Business (MLM)
This is what I thought was the only way to make money with this company, but that is not the case. However, this is just like any other MLM business in which you get a commission if someone buys into the business and the whole if their 3 get your 3 nonsense.
This is also where things can get a bit pricey and might make you second guess yourself when doing the business side of things. Most people won’t buy into this part because it is very, very expensive.
To get started, you are going to need to purchase their license which is going to cost you $99. Then they have their packages which offer other services, but this is completely for people looking to make more from the company.
The packages run from $495 to as much as $12,000. Damn! That is a lot of money and what could you possibly get for 12 k? I have been exposed to many network marketing businesses and some that even go as high as 20k. This is where you might want to pump the brakes.
I have joined my share of network marketing businesses and we all know it is not an easy thing to do. I have been from companies like Amway to the Empower Network and yes I have dumped thousands of dollars into other people’s bank accounts.
I know this company went down and all of a sudden came out of nowhere. What is also behind this company is a couple of big names and one that really caught my attention.
This fine fellow’s name is Matt Trainer. I came across this 7 figure earner through another company, which is one of the biggest scams to ever walk the face of the online world.
I’m not too sure if you’re familiar with this company, but it is called Neucopia. This business ranks #2 on my all-time scams list and has actually been shut down. Read my review on Neucopia here if you want to know a little more about this network marketing scheme.
Matt just so happens to be one of the “trainers” in that company and because of the fact that he is a really good online marketer. He is a 7 figure earner and is really, really good at what he does.
I guess he was picked up by the owners of Dubli to help them with SEO and online marketing services, which Matt is one of the best in. I have a lot of respect for this guy and he has done great with affiliate marketing.
How Much Does Dubli Cost?
The pricing for the shopping side of things is actually really cheap and is almost a no brainer to anyone wanting to save money shopping online.
You can start completely free and still save money, but paying always has its advantages. There are only two other packages in this department and they are the premium and VIP packages.
The premium package is $4.95/month and the VIP package is $49.95 for the year. I mean come on, if you have the $50, pay for it and get access to more savings and also their referral program.
The free and premium packages won’t allow you to earn from your referrals, so this almost leaves you with no choice. Don’t forget, this is just for the whole shopping side of things, but let me introduce you to the network marketing side of things.
Here is where things get really, really pricey. Just to start, it is going to cost you $99 for the license. Then you are going to need the other packages if you want to commission off of them.
This is one of the reasons why I stay away from network marketing and do nothing but affiliate marketing. Once you pay the $99, the next package is going to be $495 and goes up to $12,000. And yes that is 12k and not 1200.
I’m not going to get into the comp plan for their network marketing business, because it is way too complicated just like any other MLM. All you need to know that it is going to COST YOU if you want to become apart of their network.
The Pros & Cons
Just like any business out there, they all have their good and bad side to things and Dubli is no different. It’s actually a little harder to point out things because there are two sides to this business. Here is what I liked and didn’t like about this business.
- Low startup cost for shopping (not network)
- Savings on big name stores
- Unique business model
- Great backing
- Very pricey
- Is MLM
- Is not easy
Is Dubli a Scam?
The Dubli Network is nothing but a big fat scam! I know it may sound like I was praising this business most of the time, but in the end they have what I like to call a “hidden agenda”.
They bait you with the “savings” and a great a very cheap startup until they slap you in the backend with a nice “if you want to make more money” nonsense.
I don’t care if it’s “Team Wukar” or any of these so called teams that are trying to get you to promote this program, they all have one goal in mind and that is for you to purchase the high ticket products in the backend.
Just like any network marketing business, you will not get any help, unless you join their team. I have had so many friendships ruined just because I didn’t want to signup with them. Now you tell me that they really wanted to help me.
What I Think
In the end, this is just like any other network marketing business you have encountered, if you’ve encountered any of course. If you are serious and are looking for a network marketing program, you might want to really think about this, because it is not cheap.
I do not think it is necessary to spend thousands of dollars online to make thousands I don’t care what anyone tells you. There are too many programs like this that give people the wrong impression of how money is made online.
Quit letting the dollar signs get to you and learn how to build a real online business. I recommend programs like the Wealthy Affiliate, which gives you a chance to give the program a test drive, before you commit to anything.
I hope you learned something from this Dubli Network review and hopefully you can make a better decision. I would like to hear what you think, so please leave your comments below and don’t forget that sharing is caring. To whatever it is you decide to do, I wish you the best. cheers!
hey John !
how are you?
can u brief detail about dubli.com how is ulit work. How can i join there please give me all detail about this company.
Dubli is more 90+% customer driven than distributor driven.
Matt Trainer himself hates MLM and joined Dubli..yes you’re right… to help the company with SEO
which he has done Tremendously making WUKAR the fastest growing team in the history of Dubli in less than a month! He is focusing mainly on customers with team WUKAR and not distributors.
Taking WUKAR a step further..is set up as a company which can point to Any business on the internet excelling that biz through Matt’s SEO expertise. I’m proud to be a Wukarian. I have never heard Any person who said my goal is to become a bilionaire to only give away all my money and die broke. Matt said just that..and tells me a whole lot.
John, thank you so much for writing this. I’ve been telling a dear friend not to join this scam for a while now. I was involved with them in the early days (their first go at the big rip-off, and indeed it was and still is, just that, a MASSIVE rip-off). My dear friend sent me this link and said she is not joining. Phew. If you are ever in New Zealand, look me up and I will be buying you some beers and showing you around – legend. Aleki
Hahaha, not a problem man and thanks for the offer! I will put New Zealand on my list when I take my next vacation, so I’ll be taking you up on that offer!
Dubli Network nor Dubli are scams. Just because the cost to join is pricey does not mean it’s a scam. I am not in Dubli Network. I read nothing, no solid facts in your review that Dubli network is a scam.
People need to be responsible when they right reviews and provide evidence that something is a scam. Not just because the price is high.
Someone could say that the program you are in is a scam because they get you to try for free, entice you to use some of the features of a paid member just so that you would shell out the $19 at the end of the trial period and the $47 thereafter.
You see what I mean. There are things that are clearly scams out there, but not because a program is pricey to join it is a scam.
I would like to respond to you Barbara, but your grammar is just horrible and I would just be wasting my time trying to explain things to you. But let me leave you with this. Everyone in this are doing nothing but trying to get back what they just spent and that’s how these high ticket items work. What are you really getting? Has any program ever worked for you? Have you even tried “the program I recommend“, regardless of how much it costs? I do hope you find something that works Barbara and I can promise you that you are not going to make money online hanging out on my blog all day.
My grammar is horrible. Thanks for the personal attack. I could have chosen to say the same thing to you. And I am not hanging out on your blog all day and I am making money online.
Can you please tell me how and if you are with any company, which one?
John, thank you for the exhaustive and well written review of this program. I only heard of Dubli yesterday and am not yet involved on any level, other than just doing some due diligence. My research indicates that the program has changed dramatically from its earlier days, and suggests that some former members may not have understood what they were getting into. Overall I’m sensing positive vibes, particularly on the shopping side of the program. The compensation plan details are still a mystery to me.
However, I think there is a mistake in your review. You state, “You also get $20 from every person you refer to Dubli that becomes a VIP member, which costs them $49. It used to be $99 but I have no idea why it said $49.” VIP membership is $99, not $49.
Did you actually join? Are you currently a member at any level?
I remain curious and uninformed about the complexities of the compensation plan, and wonder if you have further insights on the current program. You mention the upper level costing $12k. I’ve been led to believe the upper level is only $2475 currently. Am I missing something?
Hey Mike thanks for chiming in. I am a member for the shopping side of things and yes I only paid $49. My “up-line” told me it was $99 and others have said the same, but I will be putting a screenshot in this post to show you. As for referral commissions, I have not gotten anyone to signup, but I did double check on that. It is $20 for every member that you personally refer. If you are new to network marketing, you might want to stay away from that side of this business. Whether it’s 2k or 12k, it is not easy to get anyone to signup to this type of stuff. I have done my time with stuff like this and I will not dump another thousand dollars into someone’s bank account.
