5 Billion Sales is a Social Network MLM affiliate compensation grid promising members $400 for using Services 1 or 2.
It is currently promoting its ads banners on popular rating platforms in West Africa, coaxing people with a high yield blueprint. Invariably, the deal is: recruit people into an affiliate tier in the site and get a bonus point convertible to a $400 cap per day (?).
Is there any truth to these PRs, or is it the same glibness from another MLM company?
The PRs maintain that the leverage is to monetize the internet.
We highlight some crucial aspects of the project in this article. Read on below for details.

5 Billion Sales: Membership Tiers
As we mentioned previously, the company is an internet pro, implying that members can sign-up/register for tiered investment programs. Until the company launches officially, its members will have free time to register for any tier.
After launch, the 5 Billion Sales membership fee is $199.
However, people actually buy into a twofold passive earning option. Service 1 and Service 2
Membership Tiers at a Glance
Service 1 _ available for $100 per year and pays $5 per recruitment to the Service 1 cache
Service 2 (costs shelved for post-launch, or so) _ remits $10 per recruitment to the Service 2 cache.
It also pays a recurring bonus point commission that amounts to $200-$1000. Below is the compensation model for affiliates in either tier.
Unilevel Team Bonuses for Services 1 & 2
MLM Unilevel places an affiliate at the top, generates the First Level (as downline) by placing personally recruited 5 Billion Sales members on it, and continues the downlines by repeating the same placement pattern.
You can see the image below for reference.
While some MLM platforms (and non-MLM high yield projects) don’t usually go down sixteen (16) Affiliate Levels, 5 Billion Sales do so. Also, it ties payable $5 commission on the Service 1 tier to steady downline performance. Likely, disruptive recruitments might face bonus waivers.
In the case of the Service 2 tier, the affiliate gets $1 for every recruitment to the platform. Further, members get $10-$50 loyalty perks from $200-$1000 bonus point commissions for Service 2 Affiliates.
5 Billion Sales offers a MAGIC INTERNET MONEY scheme, overseen by five (5) conjointly-run web services. So, it follows that an SEC license should be the first proof that the company will keep good faith. Does 5 Billion Sales fulfill this basic requirement? No
Ordinarily, MLMs loop DeFi projects into their ROI program. But that doesn’t exempt the said enterprise from being a public offering, especially in this case. See below for red flags about 5 Billion Sales.
Is it Ponzi?
The PRs promise that affiliates can make MAGIC MONEY by recruiting people to their downlines. Otherwise, profit avenues would work contrarily to the member.
Take a brief look:
But Ponzi works by paying top-tier investors with the investments (registration fees and A/program entry deposits) from new members. So, where does 5 Billion Sales cross this boundary?
5 Billion Sales may well have an internet monetization scheme unless its feasibility depends on new deposits for revenue generation. It already mentions that members ought to work on their downlines for profits.
Typically, skewed High Yield profit models are the core of Ponzi.
None of these is an issue if the platform provides a copy of the supposed MAGIC INTERNET PROFIT, different from profits/deposits from recruits.
Against this backdrop, 5 Billion Sales proffers a Sales Booster and monetized internet profit channels. Supposedly five billion people use the service.
If anything, the above offers underpin the need for an SEC license, ignoring the atypical instance of a supposed five billion-user enterprise hunting for members. Also, investors would have to throw their money into a vague blueprint.
Anonymity is another trademark of MLM Ponzi. None of the so-called 5 Billion Sales execs are verifiable, nor does any of them have a tangible business road map(s). Cue the MAGIC INTERNET MONEY rhetoric people may well be investing in fraud.
On the Flipside
The company may be onto ulterior activities instead of the usual MLM recruit-and-earn-profit model. Below is a clip from the T&C requiring membership compliance with the waivers therein.
As part of the functionality of the Site, you may link your account with online accounts you have with third-party service providers (each such account, a “Third-Party Account”) by either:
(1) providing your Third-Party Account login information through the Site; or
(2) allowing us to access your Third-Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third-Party Account.
You represent and warrant that you are entitled to disclose your Third-Party Account login information to us and/or grant us access to your Third-Party Account.
So, the sign-up criteria coax members’ third-party passwords and sign-in details (on all sites). It bodes various things for the affiliate, besides severing any shred of security from them.
If 5 Billion Sales is thus a five billion users’ media, it still has to make a matching revenue to pay $400 to every user. Such profits depend on the already discussed Ponzi avenue or the option below.
Worst Case Scenario
You can expect a data mining spree, spam & hacks, bot attacks, etc. No doubt, any of these options could generate revenue, given the appropriate market. However, it is a far cry from what users signed up for on the site.
5 Billion Sales Conclusion
So far, the company is a far cry from everything about a legit platform in many aspects.
It is not transparent
It doesn’t guarantee any security to users.
5 Billion Sales lacks an SEC license despite purporting to cater to five billion people
No information about the Execs.
It’s a High Yield program, which could lead to Ponzi.
Until 5 Billion Sales ticks a positive score in these aspects, it is not legit for investment.
