So for many years, I’ve purchased online marketing programs from numerous places, and one of them happens to be the Warrior Special Plus site. As a whole, this platform is not a scam, but let me tell you, it needs to improve on it’s customer service area A LOT because as of right now, I personally feel it lacks in that regard.
So let me start by explaining what Warrior Special Plus is in general:
So it’s basically like JVZoo and if you don’t know what that is (here’s the explanation), the basic premise is that people who want make online marketing products/programs can put them up there for sale.
As a member, you can also promote the products on that site as an affiliate.
The good thing about this program is that it allows vendors a platform to put up stuff to sell instead of having to make your own checkout cart and figure out the sales coding aspect of things.
It also allows vendors to have affiliates on the same network sell those things and not have to figure out which affiliate is supposed to get so and so credit for the sale/s he or she makes.
Overall, it’s a legitimate system set up for both vendors and affiliates to do business on and together.
But it has issues and here are some of them (personal stuff I’ve experienced):
Warrior Plus has many of the SAME issues I pointed out in places like JVZoo in that their customer support could really be A LOT better. In fact, the same cons (and even pros) I listed for that site, I may as well just list for this one, but I’ll keep it short:
There’s a bunch of programs on this particular platform that are low quality. I don’t even think there’s a vetting process that goes on when people submit their products and programs to be on this platform.
If there is, it could sure be better because if I take the products I’ve purchased from it and label them with bad, OK and good labels, then most of the time, the products I’ve purchased are either on the OK or bad side, with VERY few being good.
Now I have my own subjective, yet high standards for the internet marketing I purchase and review because I’ll know if they work or not most of the time because I’ll cross examine their strategy with what I use and have used in my personal experiences doing it and based on that, MOST of the products I’ve purchased on Warrior Plus are sub par at best.
But this is where things can get annoying (if you seek refunds):
Just a few days ago, I purchased a few products from this place:
One of them was called The Milk it Method. It was an OK product that I decided to keep.
But then there was one called The Piggyback Payday. Now that one had issues where I wasn’t sent a log in and what happens if you have technical issues or just issues in general (like refunds) with the products on this platform is this:
-They provide you with a chat to contact, but for the most part they REALLY emphasize trying to dispute whatever problems you have with the vendor so they send you through a bunch of F.A.Q pages which basically say that.
-The problem in my case was that the vendor wasn’t actually responding to my original issue.
-Furthermore, even the chat itself says it takes hours to respond. I guess this isn’t a bad thing, considering even a good platform like Clickbank takes about 24 hours to respond to requests, BUT what Warrior Plus does is that they first reach out to the vendor, then to you, so it becomes a back n forth type of thing which can take some time to figure out…
-Update. Chat responded to me and basically told me to dispute the issue with PayPal (I didn’t pay through them) or to dispute through my credit card company. This is extremely annoying since it makes the customer service in Warrior Plus basically useless. It just seems like all they do is send you anywhere but through themselves to fix any potential refund issues.
Look I understand that this platform aims to get details on a case from both sides and wants the vendor and customer to figure it out, but I really believe they need to play a more active role since it is after all their platform where these purchases get made. Otherwise, what is the point of even having them in place if they don’t directly help you?
Going back to what I just said about Clickbank, a really good program in this regard, what they do is that they actually have a central place where you can get refunds from QUICKLY. Now I do get that this can lead to abuse on the customer’s end, but Clickbank truly makes refunding easy.
In Warrior Plus’s case, it’s not easy. If you can reach out to the vendor and they can communicate with you well, sure it is, but like I said, if you get an inactive one, then you’ve gotta go though Warrior Plus’s directly and that can take awhile considering the steps they take and how long it takes for all of this to get figured out…
My final thoughts:
Like I said before, Warrior Plus is not a scam, but like JVZoo and especially places like Clickbetter (not to be mistaken with Clickbank), they have to handle 2 particular problems:
- Low quality programs.
- Being more active in their customer support area and have less of a web/wait to handle disputes.
There’s a reason bigger programs like Clickbank, Amazon, eBay, Commission Junction are considered bigger networks, it’s largely due to the fact that their customer support is top notch and I truly believe the other programs I mentioned in this review, besides Warrior Plus itself would be more successful if they did.
I still believe that if you have a good product, specifically one that deals with making money online, that Warrior Plus is one of the places you should consider to put it up on, but even then, know that you must be a good customer service representative should people want to ask you questions.
And as an affiliate, I honestly can’t think of a good program to recommend promoting on this platform. I can recommend another platform and program to promote and that would be Wealthy Affiliate. They offer good compensations, excellent recurring commissions and a high positive feedback from customers.
