Is Infinii the same as DS Domination or is it something different altogether? Drop shipping and Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) were methods taught in DS Domination and it seems for now this part of DS Domination will still be part of the new Infinii. However, there seems to be much focus on the new Springboard platform. Currently, Infinii is still at the pre-launch phase. I will try to explain what I currently know about company here but do note that information are still sketchy at this point. I still have a lot questions (and concerns) about Infinii and hope to have them answered or confirmed, hopefully before its public launch on 1st December 2015.
Update 30 November 2015 – More information regarding how Co-Op seats are allocated in Infinii SpringBoard.
Name: Infinii (previously known as DS Domination)
Owners: Hitesh Junega, Kevin Hokoano, Jason Rose
Product: Training, Membership for Co-Op platform Springboard
Price: Prime Membership ($49 per month), Surge Membership ($150 per month), Excel Membership ($400 per month)
Overview of Infinii
I keep thinking that Infinii should pronounce as In Fi Nii, but apparently it should be In Fi Ni i. Anyways, I think the best way to understand Infinii is to start from the 3 membership level that is being offered.
This is the entry level membership which cost $49.95 a month. At this level, you get 15 seats on the Springboard Co-Op platform. I will explain more about seats later
The next level membership comes at $149.99 a month. You get 30 seats .
The most expensive membership we know so far… comes at $399.95 a month. Wow, this better be good. Of course at this level, you will get everything you would get in the Prime and Surge plus what is exclusive to the Excel membership. You get 60 seats with this membership.
Infinii Springboard (the main sell)
Springboard Co-Op platform is the main product (or focus) of Infinii. Depending on your membership level, you can access to your member level specific tier of products on the Springboard platform that are available to be sold and fulfilled by Amazon. Supposedly, higher membership level will give you access to products on the Springboard platform that has higher return on investment when sold and fulfilled by Amazon.
Say you see 10,000 units of Product A listed on the Springboard. Information will be provided on springboard on how much Product A will be sold on Amazon. For illustration purpose let’s have each unit of Product A to cost price at $1 dollar. If one unit Product A it is sold on Amazon for $9.90. Minus fees by Amazon and cost price, profit should be roughly around $2.50 per unit. When 10,000 units are sold, total profit will be $25,000. That is 250% Return On Investment.
The thing to note here is that you do not handle the products at all as all the product are sold and fulfilled by Amazon. When a product on springboard is sold on Amazon, Amazon handles the fulfillment by getting product from the supplier and shipping it to the customer.
How to participate in the Infinii Springboard Co-Op
Using the same Product A as example again. You can participate in the Co-Op of this e commerce transaction through the buying of Seats. Let’s say we have 100 seats available for the Co-Op to sell 10,000 units of Product A. Again each unit cost $1 dollar.
Ok maths here: 10,000 units of Product A divide by 100 seats = 100 units of Product A per seat
You decide to buy 1 seat:
100 units multiply by cost of Product A which is $1 dollar, buying 1 seat in this Co-Op will cost you $100.
When all 10,000 units of Product A is sold out on Amazon, the $25,000 profit will be split equally among the 100 seats who participated in the Co-Op. If you bought 1 seat in this Co-Op which is 100 units of Product A, at $2.50 profit per unit, your return on investment for your $100 dollar investment is $250.
If you are a Prime Member ($49.95 per month)
As a Prime member, you can only buy up to 5 seats in this Product A Co-Op. If you bought all 5 seats, I guess you can expect $1250 in profit.
(Note: I am not sure when they say 5 seats as in your prime membership allows you to buy up to 5 Co-Op seats for each product or you can only buy 5 seats max irrespective of how many different product co-ops you buy into. I suspect it is the latter.)
Also, Prime members have no access to Surge or Excel Co-Op spots while Surge members will only have no access to Excel exclusive Co-Op spots. Excel members will have access to all Co-Op spots.
We can assume that for the higher priced Inifinii membership like Surge and Excel give you access to product Co-Ops of higher ROI and off course more seats.
The Compensation Plan
They say there is 8 ways to get paid as an affiliate. They talk about uni level, binary things that is just too technical for me.
Basically, you get some commissions when you refer people to buy the Infinii memberships and I am guessing also when they buy Co-Op seats. So if you want to be paid more this way, I guess you just have to refer more people to Infinii right?
Back to The Product or Service…Again!
I think Infinii Springboard is a pay money to make money service. So far the business model looks good on paper but we really only know if it will work as hyped when the platform starts to operate on 1st December 2015.
If I were to buy an Infinii membership, frankly I am buying it because of the Springboard platform and I do hope it works as presented. Otherwise, Infinii will be just a poor excuse for people to make money thru recruitment and nobody actually uses the Springboard platform.
Some of My Questions and Probably Yours too!
Update: 30 November 2015 – Forget about seats, it is now the number units you can buy on the Springboard platform base on your membership level.
How are the
Seats Units allocated?
If you are a Prime member, you can only buy 15 units from the Springboard platform.
Again using a Prime member as an example buying 15 units means: (15 units of product A) or (5 units of Product A + 10 units of Product B) or (2 units of Product A + 3 unit of Product B + 6 units of Product C + 4 units of Product D). Any combination that adds up to only 15 units.
30 and 60 units if you are Surge and Excel Members. If you want to buy more units than your member allocation quota, you would need to pay additional maintenance fees.
I think the previously mentioned tiered system is scraped.
Do you get new seats every month?
If what I presume is the case for how seats in the co-op works, then would you get new seats every month. I can imagine each Co-Op running for a least a month or even 2 to 3 months long. While I am paying my Infinii membership every month. If a Prime member does not get 15 new seats every month, obviously the member’s ROI from the product Co-Op will have to be re-calculated each month due to membership fees. Even more so for Surge and Excel members.
If this is now base on the number of units you can purchase according to your membership level, does the quota renew every month?
What happens when I cancel my membership while my Co-Op is still running?
It may take up to 3 or 4 months for a product in the Co-Op to sell out on Amazon. If I cancel my membership on the 2nd month, will I still get my profit for my seats when the Co-Op completes a few month later?
What happen if the product just won’t sell?
Say the Co-Op still have 500 units that is simply not moving after months of listing on Amazon. What then? Should we consider it as an investment loss?
No more Co-Op spots left?
Imagine if everyone buys up all Co-Op spots, what happens to my seats? Come back again next month?
If there is no units left to buy on the springboard and I still can buy units base on my quota, will I be compensated?
What is GPG?
And do you need a GPG account to participate in the Co-Op?
My Thoughts about Infinii so far…
If you ask me to invest $500 and promise to give me back $1250 about 4 months later. $500 plus $200 (4 months of Prime membership). That is $700 for $1250 in return. I might say yes. However, if this is going longer like 6 months. $800 for $1250 is still good I guess but this is a “I” bear the risk investment. There is also the time frame issue to deal with which only creates more uncertainty for me. I would say no.
If you have concern or questions about Infinii that is not addressed here, do leave them in the comments below and I will try to answer them as I get more information.
Update 20 January 2016: Apparently affiliates or customers who wants to access the Spring Board program must first sign an NDA (Non-Circumvention Agreement).
