SFI Affiliate Program Review- Please Not Another Scam?

sfi reviews  SFI Affiliate Program Review  Please Not Another Scam?Does SFI Affiliate Program scam people? SFI Affiliate Center is a business opportunity that tends to attract a lot of people from around the world. But is it just another scam? That’s a good question and I’m going to tell you what it’s about and my opinion on it. So the first thing I did was go to www.sfiaffiliateprogram.com and signed up for my free account. It was fairly easy and it took me to a few steps. Honestly, there are a few better ways to make money though in my opinion.

It’s A Setup For “Triple Clicks” More Than Anything

Basically it seems the whole program is set up for you to refer people into tripleclicks.com. Well, at least this is the main income stream that is promoted and recommended for you to join. Triple Clicks is just a large market place of products that have discounts on them. When you refer people to there and they buy something, you make a commission.

There are other income streams you can be a part of and earn points. Basically the more points you and your team earns, the more residual income you can make each month. There are a number of SFI products you can promote ranging from web hosting to other monthly subscription type products as well. The deal is like any other or most affiliate programs out there: the more people you refer, the more money you make.

The Problem With SFI Affiliate

compensation plan  300x88 SFI Affiliate Program Review  Please Not Another Scam?It’s not the worse affiliate program I have ever seen. In fact, it’s been around for a very long time compared to other affiliate programs in this industry. This is the issue I have with SFI Affiliate Program: it’s not structured in a way that’s going to help an average person from 0 to Internet money.

It’s just, well, an affiliate center with lots of links going here and there and different opportunities to join. There is some training but it’s very general and not structured enough to the point that if an average person joins, they’ll know exactly how to generate an income.

The problem I see here is the same old problem 99% of people looking to make biz opps work: they don’t know what it really takes to drive traffic to an income opportunity. Another issue I found was reading someone’s testimonial of how they had 135 referrals and was hardly making any money at all. That’s tough.

What’s A Better Option For Newbies?

Obviously, I know what I’m doing as an experienced marketer and have also been a newbie at one point. I make money full-time online now and have been doing so for 3+ years. Want to know how? If you really want to make money online the correct way, there is definitely a better option than SFI. I know a lot of people are hardcore and loyal to SFI, even if they’re not making any money and not progressing.

I challenge you to take a look and try my #1 recommend affiliate program that is GUARANTEED to show you the right way to do affiliate marketing and become profitable. I have referred many people to Wealthy Affiliate from SFI and many are having tremendous success and have found a new light on affiliate marketing and earning an income from home. So go ahead, feel free to leave comments and anything you feel could be of value. Thanks for reading!


  1. I only had to read one of your comments to see that you really either didn’t give SFI a chance, or you just don’t know what you’re talking about. I just celebrated my second year with SFI yesterday and couldn’t be happier. The program has been around for over 16 years, a lifetime in internet terms. Scams don’t last 16 years, they just don’t.

    The compensation plan is exactly the same for everyone, so one person crying about not making money clearly didn’t work hard enough. There is no scam. We have an ongoing relationship with PayPal, Payoneer, The Better Business Bureau, respectable charities and so on. Over a half a million people follow SFI and TripleClicks on Facebook and Twitter…I could go on. But, instead, I’ll just tell you that I’m an average Joe who has been receiving compensation for 24 months and when I see comments like this, all I can do is roll my eyes and know that they were just looking for a quick buck by logging in once a day. That’s not how any business works.

    So, I’m going to go log into SFI and check on my downline and my friends who also all earn money along with many thousands of others while so many other people just keep on signing up to program after program, then bash them on the internet when they don’t make money within 3 hours. Yes, I’m a real SFI affiliate, you can see me on Facebook, Google+, anywhere. I don’t hide my identity as a keyboard warrior.

    Careful, what you say, there are laws that protect US companies that are legitimate. I’ve taken a screenshot of this entire page and will be forwarding it to the company support along with all information about “Wealthy Affiliate Review” with a quickness. Have a good day.

    • I appreciate your comments and honest feedback. They help me rank.

      This was written somewhere around 1.5 years ago, and I have recently re-visited the SFI site and it has changed….a lot. It’s much neater and modern and a complete reconstruction of what I saw when I did this review. When I first joined SFI, I couldn’t tell where this company was from, lots of broken grammar within the home page, tons of links to different places, and very sloppy training. I will consider being fair and reviewing it again. However the “Start earning in minutes” pitch on the homepage is already a red flag and I can see where this is going.

      First of all, I never said this is a scam. I never claim it is a scam. I mention that it has been around for a while. It’s been around for 16 years? That’s cute. Another MLM such as Amway has been around over 50 and has been the subject of some of the biggest controversy in network marketing history…still to this day. Want to see how many scam reports are on that company? Go ahead. Google it. Amway makes SFI look like the size of grain of sand. There are 10’s of thousands of these things out there, and this one is no different. Relationships with the BBB? What does that even mean? BBB lost it’s credibility a long time in my opinion, after really implementing a weird system of arbitration. You pay them money, and they’ll rate you good. Don’t, and you’ll get bad. I’ve seen straight out get-rich-quick schemes get an A. It’s ridiculous.

      I can see where you’re coming from. I used to as well be in these “recruit” and hustle as many people as you can into a downline MLM’s. I was brainwashed tremendously and fought to death defending my “business opportunity”. You know it, and I know it that the way you make money in these businesses is to sell hype and the opportunity rather than anything else, and have the others in your team do the same. Those that have no problem doing this to people, will make it.

      If you knew how to do effective online marketing, you would know how to get on the 1st page of Google. This is what these things should be teaching at the very least.

      One of your “top” people actually privately emailed me about 1 year ago, basically asking a desperate plea for help and direction because he was tired of creating massive downlines with very little income and tired of selling the dream. I mentioned that the amount of people he had in his organization would have equated to 100x’s more income than what he was bringing in, if he were somewhere else. I could show you the email, and it would probably crush your hopes and dreams. Two years into this is not that far a long. Maybe one day you will see the light with these “opportunities” and come to senses.

      With the amount of effort you put in here, you could probably create your OWN brand and business, and stop hustling lots and lots of people who earn tiny little peanuts, after working so hard.

      Again, I appreciate your honest feedback and comments, and respect that you have to guts to stand up for something you believe in. I will be fair and re-review this thing shortly.

  2. This is a big scam…….no comment.

  3. Hey there I’ve been reading the comments and if I wasn’t already signed up I would be worried but the thing is s.f.I is not a get rich quick scheme. It might require effort, time and investment but what other program could you make money without some time or effort. As far as a free program goes this one is alright. I can say you won’t make real money until months later after you have built a decent down line. I am in my third month and I have about fifteen personal sponsored affiliates and about 114 co-sponsored affiliates. My income isn’t hardly anything I expected but I am making a little. Which is better than other programs I’ve done in which the take your money and run. They have been helpful when I have a question or concern and I’ve never felt I’ve been left in the dark.

    • sfi affiliate programme is not a scam, and not a get rich scheme either.
      In sfi you reap what you sow
      What in the world are people thinking.
      people think when the join sfi in some few months the will be earning thousands of dollars.
      well My friend if you are thinking that way you will never ever make money online talk more of sfi.
      Mark my words i mean everything i say.
      i have review many reply here on this post about sfi affiliate maketting some reply with the truth some with anger, hope,and skeptical.
      if you want to make some money online or in sfi i have only three words to clear your mine and make your succeed.



      Wow!!!! it sound great
      Now what
      Sfi is real the have been existing for more than a decade.
      So ask yourself why whould someone conclude that sfi is a scam simply because the can’t make money or dim in it,Think of it.

  4. truth about SFI business like this is not a click to earn program but an effort based network marketing program and your sales points have more value than only action points. 
    Your entry level lessons are 31.. almost every affiliate signing up skips over these..average I’ve reminded new sign ups to do all lessons of 100 85 will not return..possibly 18 do the lessons.. then the web changes constantly so you come in you login.. you do your daily actions weekly and monthly
    Those earn you commission points for the company pool
    They cost no money.. then lessons 31-81 cover how to earn money with all the free power tools
    Sfi offers in marketing and co-ops… only about 5 of sign ups actually read and use these tools
    I’ve found majority of English speaking people want EASY RICH PROGRAMS.. SFI is a business
    Not an employer.. When you invest your time to start any business.. it calls for you to learn
    Not wait to be told what to do… intelligent people will succeed
    lazy people will complain the world doesn’t work for them boo hoo..
    Well my advice is do as I did Go in to sfi for 90 days.. research, read, seek answers under every red blue and underlined word.. do not come in thinking it’s all done for you..
    The info changes with the Internet cause sfi never stops on one line of thought
    With no money invested and my hard work within 6 months I was able to make my standing order since then I am able to add advertising cost covered as well.. I average 67.00 .. and I invested time and effort not money

  5. It is not total scam. In fact you will earn some money but the problem is that you pay $30 per month and earn $1. You can spend even $1000 without breaking even.

    SFI is a total joke!

  6. I have read a lot of negative reviews about SFI here, it would had scared me if i was not already involved in the program. I just wonder how people will report what they know not. yes i recall lots of people calling Microsoft a scam because they peg a price on their products, or better still a lazy employee calling his boss a scam because he got laid off.

    Now here is how SFI works, you sign up, you have a lot of materials and trainings on how SFI works, if you fail to read, its nobodies fault. Its not a get rich scheme like most people would expect, people are just looking for a magic wand that will pay them with little or no effort on their path. Does such a thing exist?

    When you sign up, you sign others up and earn commissions from their expenditure and sales they generate. To some, it may seem a scam but to me its ingenious, someone sat down to put his idea to work. I am on my forth month with SFI, already a team leader, yes i have invested some money, its a business, you must put in some form of investment in other to earn profit. I started receiving commissions at the end of the 2nd month, though the first was not fantastic, but it was enough to cover my expenditure for the month. The last pay was lined with profit, i spend quality time promoting SFI and marketing SFI daily, i spend time training my team i recruit how to go about the business, so why won’t it profit me?

    If you didn’t make it on SFI, it just that it was not meant for you. I have signed up over 200 affiliates for SFI, only about 15 are active, i have earned co-sponsor affiliates assigned to me by SFI, you get this as you grow in rank and you also get a percentage of their expenditure. I have over 300 of these assigned to me, only about 10 are active, but i work with these and train them to recruit their own team to work .

    If you are willing to dedicate a little time and be a little patient, you can get the system to work for you,

    • Thanks for the informative post. I was getting a little weary reading these negative reports. I too have been an affiliate for approx. 4 months.
      You are having much better success than I am.
      I believe this program can and will work over time and it is totally up to the individual how one invests or promotes SFI. I don’t have a lot of marketing experience but I can learn over time and this is what I intend to do.
      SFI has delivered everything they said they would. I do not believe they scam people.

    • Hi Etim. I’m just following up here to see how things are going at SFI. I know it seems like you have seen some success with the program. It’s been several months. I think for any decent affiliate program or business opp, 3 months or so should be plenty of time to see some big fruits of hard labor. It seems like you are or were someone who was taking action I’m assuming?

      The reason is, I like to update reviews if they need to be. So far, I’ve had several people comment and email me how they’ve had 300 and the other person 400 signups with minimal income. I’m taking about cents per hour if you were to calculate how much effort they’ve put in versus the actual paycheck from SFI they’re receiving.

  7. Look at another fraud in this organisation SFI and TC.
    Here is a list of auction bid logs i am giving to you. The master blaster electronic cartel Bing Obaldo and Ruth Obaldo.
    I have given only few, there are still more. I dont want to waste my time.
    Before Ruth was downline of Bing. Then god knows when they shifted her to somewhere. Corporate giving tcs to bing and all other bid against bing loses and finally become a fool who dont know whom they are bidding against.

    If any one have guts then ask this in SFI or TC. you will also be kicked out. “

  8. I’ve been with them for a week and Im getting good results. You have to treat it like any normal job and put in the effort..To each there own..Im sticking with it..A lot of people get stressed out and quit to early..Maybe the reason for the negative feedback..or they have been at it for awhile and may not know how to market it right..Anyway goodluck to all..Stay positive..

    • Hey Jon. I just wanted to followup and check up and see how you are doing with SFI. It’s been several months now, and I like to go back and visit comments of people who said they are initially having great results with something I don’t necessarily recommend. I think the 3 month mark should be enough time to see whether a program is really soluble or not.

  9. I am a member of SFI. I look at SFI earnings like a refund of my purchases at Triple Clicks. There are some really cool products on sale there. There is an Avon Lady. There are coin dealers. There is precious stones and real silver and real gold jewelry as well as some costume jewelry. There are a lot of green products and health products. Lots of the newest electronics both for sale and Auction. It is as good a store as any other internet based store. Affiliates are supposed to earn money promoting TripleClicks products. They waste too much time trying to recruit other Affiliates when they should be promoting the store. Recruiting other Affiliates is not easy especially because it is through selling things that one can begin earning right away. As recruiting takes lots of time.

  10. Use your mind and think mathematically, if you really earning or ??????… remember you have to deduct your effort fee, time, internet bill and other expenses…. then the result I think would be a very BIG NEGATIVE!!!! (-)….

    Think twice!

  11. Well I am doing it. And progressing.. I See Several holes… But it could be cause of fast action will wait and see… I Listed some Silver coins. no action yet.. I Can See that one could stay with them.. work out a real program of local merchants that wanted to sell online.. Almost any retailer would take it at a low price using tc promo stuff..

  12. you recruit in vain you`never` get your hits they block them,, they steal your down line how can you grow, they assign you persons that are a sleep buy force you have to take them like it or not they black list you if you do not go along with them GOD forbid if you complain, they prey on persons that really need change or want it

  13. I have worked SFI for three years, avereage 4 hours a day, have over 300 in my downline.
    Sofar have earned $8.32, an vereage of .00000000000000000001 per hour. I did win
    one silver bar for half price which added $10 to my income if silver keeps stable price.
    That knocjs a couple zerros from my average income………don’t do it for the money

    • Dang. Having 300 in your downline? That should be enough for at least a lower full-time income in ANY other mlm type of business. That just goes to show you how low the retention rate is for SFI. All that hard work isn’t paying off the way it is deserved to be paying off. If you were to apply the same amount of effort, let’s say, in a niche that you are passionate about, you would be making way more money and not have to deal with the sleazy niche of “making money online”. Trust me. I had been in your shoes before.

  14. I don’t think sfi is a scam its just kind of random. There is some training it’s just not as structured as some other affiliate programs. I personally stay a member because there are some things within triple clicks that I like. I have won some auctions on there and scored some silver bars cheap. Since I am a collector of precious metals its always good when I can get silver or gold at a discount. As far as the affiliate program I could take it or leave it, I certainly would not pay to be a member but since it’s free I stick around…
    Good Review Here

  15. Well,my opinion is still clear,Scam or no scam they keep me busy online and……I like.

  16. SFI sounds so much like a scam, unless you are prepared to invest and keep on top of things, in hourly terms it sems that it is ust not worth it. Just from reading reviews….

  17. I put the advert into my Starlove software, “Grow a Second Income” . After two weeks, this advert has displayed to about 2000 people. So far, only two people have signed up for SFI, and neither of them are very enthusiastic. So, I am considering now taking the advert out.

    • Yeah, that’s definitely an inefficient way to advertise. The reason is because whenever you use traffic exchanges, you are essentially targeting people who just want to earn money by clicking on your ad. Occasionally you will get a few random people join, but since it’s not a targeted ad strategy, those people are not really the audience you are looking for. That is probably the reason why they are not enthusiastic and I would guess probably already dropped out.

  18. Hi Sanaya,

    SFI cost nothing to join. It is FREE and if you follow the training provided you will make money. It is not a get rich quick scheme, you will do the work and find each month you are earning more money than the month before so long term if you persit you will have a good second income or a new full time income that you are in control off.

    • Hi Toni. It’s been over a year. I was just wondering how SFI has been going for you? I know according to this comment, you were really in favor of SFI. Were you able to develop a full-time income after all?

  19. can any one tell me clearly is sfi a total scam. can I trust in it. if so how to generate downline affiliates. do I have to make payment before starting this online marketing business. waiting to have a fast reply

  20. How is SFI a scam? Be clear! I always made money with it.

    • OK, tell us, how much money did you make per month?

      • Good question! How much money did you spend to make whatever you claim to have made?

        The truth is that less than 0.1% of SFI people are making any money. Their claims are a total joke!

        In fact, ask a serious question, or question a SFI claims, and you will be banned from participation.

        This company needs to be seriously investigated by the FTC and IRS!

        • I have been with sfi for just over 2 years and have 4000 people under me. All I make every month so far is $100. I have twice been turned down from advertising two perfectly normal opportunity manuals for no good reason. You are not allowed to say what you earn, other businesses don’t make this stipulation. I’m not sure how long more I can stick with it.

    • yes be clear!! How much did you make? Or are you one of those ones getting peoples money for nothing.

    • I wish to high light the Triple click auction spending. It is high time some body notice the Triple click auction charges.
      In triple click auction they say the auction goes in.01 cents per click and they are penalizing the participants hugely.
      for example if an auction goes for $6.05 the total click is done for around 605 TCredits considering every single T Credit ups the value by .01 cents and if you calculate the total cost of T Credits spent on the auction it comes to as per their own cost (they charge for 125 T Credits a sum of $52 USD) if you calculate for 605 T Credits spent on that particular auction the total comes to $251approx. That shows how the Triple clicks is exploiting its members.
      Where as the highest bidder may get the benefits while the other member participants are losing heavily. Which is quiet surprising. This is in my opinion it is a great fraud. If the second and third highest bidder gets some T Credits in return may well suit but in this case nothing is returned and the Triple click hugely gains. It is one simple example suppose if it is in the case of an auction which goes more than 30 or 40 dollars then the T Credits used may come around 3000 to 4000 T Credits and if you calculate the value of the T Credits it should be coming around 1500 USD approx. So in my opinion the Triple click site is swindling its members in huge sum of Monies without any real benefits to its members.

  21. thanks for your kind advise, i have known SFI for many year but never had interest in joining. because the internet is full of scam. i am writing from Liberia west African. please is there any program that can help me to make money online as to enable me pay my bills. at list $2, to $5 dollars daily. PayPal is not option for us neither is payza, liberty-reserve is close, which payment method will be good for us in that region of the world. thanks i wait a kind responds.


      • none of my referrals come to me were do my clicks go or to whom it seems I work in vain something is wrong with SFI and when you ask question they black list you

        • It is absolutely true. They cheat on measly points and comissions you earn but when you ask for comissions, they delete you account. I was bronze team leader and invest about $1000, but today my acount is deleted after I ask for henesty.

          • Sadly many people fall into scam, please add me on facebook or just google my name and talk to me i will help you, am not here to put you into another scam company.

        • SFI IS TOTAL SCAM. keep you Money and time from scammers.

        • I Am Active In SFI. And Like the concept.. I Recognized the error emeditly.. The Agreement is full of error and may be Illegal .. But the over all concept is totalitarian.. And border lines prospect for the Rico Act.. But Will continue as long as the do what they say..Knowing that they Spy on their members.. Why More evedance

      • SFI is not a scam, but it is very hard for you to make any money. You may end up spending alot of money buying affiliates, but they won’t generate any income for you. I have a team of 191 affiliates and only one of them is active and generates for me about $20 per month. You can get 500 affiliates under you and not get any income from them. The only way for you to earn even a few dollars is spending more than the dollars you earn. Still there are people who make it and earn massive profits, but they invest heavily.

        • SFI is kind of full-of-Shit! You spend much more than you earn. It takes a few months to realize that you are a LOSER!

        • SFI is clearly a scam, They allot you CSAs to your account once you become A EA or TL but if you check their CSAs action non of them are active and most of them are inactive accounts joined a way back without any actions and they will never be active. but in your score board they mention the worth of the CSA or PSAs as $100 or more some times which is of no use and in Triple clicks they auction these CSA or PSA for some USD if you calculate their worth it is again comes to nothing but the Triple click mints huge sum by auctioning them. for example if you participate in this auction they say the auction goes in.01 cents per click and they are penalizing the participants hugely.
          for example if an auction goes for $6.05 the total click is done for around 605 TCredits considering every single T Credit ups the value by .01 cents and if you calculate the total cost of T Credits spent on the auction it comes to as per their own cost (they charge for 125 T Credits a sum of $52 USD) if you calculate for 605 T Credits spent on that particular auction the total comes to $251approx. That shows how the Triple clicks is exploiting its members.
          Where as the highest bidder may get the benefits while the other member participants are losing heavily. Which is quiet surprising. This is in my opinion it is a great fraud. If the second and third highest bidder gets some T Credits in return may well suit but in this case nothing is returned and the Triple click hugely gains. It is one simple example suppose if it is in the case of an auction which goes more than 30 or 40 dollars then the T Credits used may come around 3000 to 4000 T Credits and if you calculate the value of the T Credits it should be coming around 1500 USD approx. So in my opinion the Triple click site is swindling its members in huge sum of Monies without any real benefits to its members.
          When I posted this in the SFI forum they simple banned me from participating this shows that they are real scam.

      • I worked hard two months for nothing…
        SFI is a scam.
