Appi Travels iterated variously as a travel agency, a gifting blueprint coopting cryptocurrency and a passive income high yield investment program.
Currently, the website address leads to a CLOSED graffiti, replete with the typical red bar crossing a red circle.
So, this concludes all stipulations that Appi Travels merely transitioned to a new domain, although we can’t rule out the possibility.
The lead-up to Appi Travels getting shut down is dramatic, following CEO Danny Gauthier failing to provide legal props for his travel business. Gauthier previously ran an MLM stint, promoting Ultamex, a matrix-tied profit scheme.
After a wild PR gig, Appi Travels lost the appeal to mainstream Canada traffic, recording the most user traffic from Russian promoters instead.
Still, Gauthier faced the Russian regulatory institution, the Central Bank of Russia, which indexes the company as showing signs of Ponzi. Site traffic dwindled a bit following the notice but records a steady 53% bulk from Russian users, 15% from France, and 24% from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The French-speaking parts are due to Gauthier, who is supposedly from Quebec.
Here is the gist.
Appi Travels is closed, and the affiliates are facing a rip-off headline pending the release of bilked funds by the operators.
We highlight key aspects of the company in this review.
Read on below for details.
Appi Travels Review: Membership Compensation Plan
Instead of a framework describing the affiliate compensation plans, the site (while it was up and running) merely states that each member can earn a flat-quote four-figure ROI at least.
Subsequent profits will depend on incomes from the typical MLM unilevel grids and binary teams.
Appi Travels affiliates will have to start a membership tier by seeding a monthly $50-$300 subscription.
Moreover, the company pays Direct Recruitment Commissions on a unique model. For example, if the order of an affiliate’s referrals tallies an odd number. It pays according to the following layout.
$150 for each recruitment to Navigator tier plan that costs $300
$25 for each recruitment to Explorer tier Plan that costs $50
Apart from these payments, affiliates also earn a matching bonus that pays up to 100% on the Level 1 referral’s commissions.
Additionally, members can earn profits through unilevel and binary team matrices. See how they work below.
It gives the top position to an affiliate. The affiliate can start two-team branch levels by personally recruiting members to Level 1 (comprising two teams). Similarly, Level 1 affiliates start Level 2 (comprising four teams) by recruiting people to buy membership packages.
Each member in every level is part of a branching lattice, which
continues down an infinite level
Alternatively, members can earn residual bonuses through a unilevel grid. Here is how it works.
Unilevel grids allot the top position to an affiliate upon registration. The affiliate can start other levels by personally recruiting members to Level 1. Similarly, Level 1 affiliates start Level 2 by recruiting people to buy membership packages.
Each member in every
level is part of a branching lattice, which continues down an infinite level.
Based on these grids, Appi Travels affiliates can earn
the following commissions from the company.
Navigator Tier _ goes for $150 whenever an affiliate recruits someone to this tier.
Explorer Tier _ goes for $25 whenever an affiliate recruits someone to the tier.
Moreover, members can get a free flight booking through designated third-party agencies, although Appi Travels does not elaborate on this point.
How to Login to the Site
The platform members can access their affiliate dashboards via the Appi Travels Login portal. So, explain the steps here. See below for details.
Liaise with any top affiliate for the referral link sign-in protocols. (Usually, top-tier members can bypass frontend blocks using unique portals).
- Enter your account login details (do not enter your account security PIN to avoid a double whammy).
- Check any captcha on the page.
- Finally, click on Login.
There is no cut-and-dried approach to this issue. Appi Travels has closed, leaving members without access to the portal. Hence, the above steps are necessarily troubleshot.
Is it legit? Of course not
Conclusion _ Will the Site Revert to Normal?
As we mentioned at the start, Appi Travels is closed.
However, some former clients still looking to withdraw their funds are optimistic that the company may open again. That is unlikely.
Abrupt closures often mark the end of all pyramid schemes.
At one point, Finiko and IP Capital offered similar bogus high ROI deals. But they closed in the end, running away with the clients’ funds. Sometimes these scammers are aligned for HYIP notoriety, resulting in the seizure of assets.
All of these companies have one thing in common _ three-figure ROIs. Danny Gauthier offered an unrealistic four-figure high yield, Ponzi. And it has crashed.
