ShopWithMe’s website doesn’t include any information about the company’s ownership or executives.

The domain name (“shopwithme.biz”) used by ShopWithMe was privately registered on April 14, 2021.

A Direct Selling Magazine article was mentioned by BehindMLM reader Melanie on June 30. The article from June 28th reflects Christian Wiesner’s debut of ShopWithMe.

Shopwithme is the first step toward Christian Wiesner’s new social commerce revolution.

Dr. Keywan Grashoff, the mother of Christian Wiesner, founded the federal capital-based company Shopwithme GmbH.

On ShopWithMe’s website, Wiesner’s name appears as a “representative.”

Contact information is given to verify German law governs ShopWithMe’s incorporation. However, Regus, a provider of virtual offices, is the owner of the stated corporate address.

BehindMLM is aware of Christian Wiesner as the founder and CEO of WellStar.

BehindMLM reported a fight between Wiesner and Kari Wahlroos in 2015.

Wahlroos began working with WellStar in 2014 and advanced fast to the position of Crown Ambassador. A frequent mention of Wahlroos as one of WellStar’s “top leaders”

Wahlroos later left WellStar in late 2015 to serve as the face of the infamous OneCoin Ponzi scheme.

Wiesner did not find this to be acceptable.

Wahlroos was charged with “criminal conduct” by Wiesner. Wahlroos then made his way back and gave information on WellStar’s corporate activities in a public letter.

The fact that I have determined that this business will never fulfill the promises it makes as Wellstars No. 1 and its most successful leader is the true problem here.

You and I have had innumerable conversations about fixing the never-ending issues, but you never follow through. You have only given us two instructions for more than 18 months: “Recruit more” and “Sell more Tickets.”

The management of Wellstar is still scandalous.

faults in products. a broken mechanism for goods returns. Customer help is nonexistent, and partner support is appalling.

How many times did my team have to demonstrate the issues with your attempts to blame us?

I adored the idea of the product, and while I like you personally, you fall short in your role as CEO, leaving the business in shambles.

We both understand that because so many presidents have resigned due to their inability to make ends meet, a new nation must be established every three months.

WellStar was evaluated by BehindMLM in January 2016. What we discovered seemed to support Wahlroos’ story.

Whatever the cause, WellStar as an MLM opportunity is in dire need of a makeover, whether it be due to language barriers or the fact that it was established twelve years ago.

There are issues with the WellStar website’s lack of disclosure on retail prices, affiliate membership fees, and fundamental details of the compensation structure.

There is a lot of information on the compensation scheme, but not all is clear.

We determined that the foundation of WellStar’s business strategy is autoship recruiting, which qualifies it as a pyramid scam.

Readers of BehindMLM claimed that WellStar might eventually fail in the middle to end of 2020. The company’s website vanished around the beginning of 2021.

Wiesner was dealing with a WellStar shell business scandal as of mid-2021. In the end, a German court would order WellStar GmbH & Co. KG to become insolvent on February 15, 2022.

A few months after that, ShopWithMe appeared.

I believe Wiesner’s WellStar shell business antics are the reason his mother is listed as the creator of ShopWithMe.

For a thorough analysis of ShopWithMe’s MLM potential, keep reading.

The Items at ShopWithMe

ShopWithMe itself doesn’t offer any services or goods for retail sale.

ShopWithMe gives users access to an online storefront that sells goods from other companies.

Wiesner asserts in a ShopWithMe marketing film that the company offers goods in the areas of wellness, fitness, and beauty.

Plan of Compensation for ShopWithMe

The ShopWithMe incentive structure rewards purchases made by retail consumers and affiliates they have attracted.

ShopWithMe receives a commission from retailers whose goods are featured on its site, much like any other e-commerce company.

The compensation plan for ShopWithMe is funded in part by that commission.

To simplify things, “customers” hereafter refers to retail consumers and recruited affiliates, unless specified otherwise.

Ranks for ShopWithMe affiliates

The ShopWithMe compensation structure has seven tiers.

They are as follows, along with their respective qualifying standards:

National Success Coach (NSC): register as a ShopWithMe affiliate, earn 400 PV, and purchase five tickets

thirty NSCs for International Success Coach (ISC) and fifty NSCs for Gold Executive Leader (GEL).

100 NSCs or three ISCs should be attracted by the Gold Executive Director (GED) (GEP) – hire either 150 NSCs or 5 ISCs Chairman Executive (CE) – hire either 150 NSCs or 5 ISCs

A marketing slide from a formal presentation by Christian Wiesner is shown below:

Although much of it is illogical, I was still able to meet the requirements for the 400 PV NSC xx ISC level. Wiesner doesn’t explain any of the other material, so I have no idea what it is.

Tickets refer to Wiesner-hosted ShopWithMe marketing events.

Tickets for the ShopWithMe marketing event cost EUR 9.95 and €4.95 in the Baltic nations.

According to Wiesner, “people there have very little money,” which accounts for the pricing disparity for the Baltic states.

Individual Client Commissions

Affiliates of ShopWithMe receive commissions from sales made by personally referred clients.

You may make up to 21% of any customer’s purchase on the shop with my platform.

Your Commission is based on the Shopwithme customer’s purchase’s rebate status level.

The requirements for “rebate status” are not given.

Customer Remaining Commissions

ShopWithMe uses a uni-level compensation system to pay residual client purchase commissions.

An affiliate is put at the head of a unilevel team in a unilevel pay system, and each affiliate they recruited is positioned immediately under them (level 1):

New affiliates brought on by any level 1 affiliates are added to the original affiliate’s unilevel team at level 2.

If any level 2 affiliates bring on new affiliates, they are promoted to level 3, and so on down a theoretically endless number of levels.

Payable team levels at ShopWithMe are capped at 10.

On the PV (Provision Volume) of all Customer orders from your team’s SBOs up to level 10, you can earn an additional 42%.

There are no supplied specific commission rates for the eleven uni-level team levels.

Bonus Momentum

For their first twelve weeks working for ShopWithMe, new affiliates are eligible for the Momentum Bonus.

Sales volume that is eligible for commissions makes up the momentum bonus.

PV, which stands for “Personal Volume,” refers to the number of sales that an affiliate produces.

Group Volume is the acronym for GV. PV is produced by an affiliate and their downline is known as GV.

The same uni-level team that handles “Residual Customer Commissions” also handles payments for the Momentum Bonus (see above).

The Momentum Bonus has four stages based on PV and GV generation:

Gain a 20 percent Momentum Bonus on level 1 and a 5 percent Bonus on levels 2 and 3 with the Bonus Start (160 PV generated) Advance Start (generate 320 PV and 1200 GV) – get a 25% Momentum Bonus on Level 1, a 5% Momentum Bonus on Level 2, a 10% Momentum Bonus on Level 3, and a 5% Momentum Bonus on Level 4 Power Start (generate 400 PV and 2800 GV) – get a Momentum Bonus of 35% on level 1, 5% on level 2, 10% on levels 3 and 4, 5% on level 5, and 2% on levels 6 and 7 Turbo Start (generate 480 PV and 4000 GV) – Receive a 40% Momentum Bonus on Level 1, a 5% Momentum Bonus on Level 2, a 10% Momentum Bonus on Level 3, and a 5% Momentum Bonus on Levels 5 to 8

Weekly payouts of the momentum bonus are made. However, ShopWithMe does not state if the PV/GV requirements are cumulative or repeated over a certain length of time.

If I were to hazard a guess, I’d say the PV/GV criteria for the momentum bonus occur weekly or monthly over the twelve-week qualification period.

Extra Pools

ShopWithMe offers a portion of six bonus pools to affiliates with NSC and higher rankings:

qualify at NSC and get a piece of the 1% Bonus Pool (2 percent if NSC qualified within 12 weeks of signing up)

the ISC and get a portion of a 3% Bonus Pool (6 percent if ISC qualified within 12 weeks of qualifying at NSC)

qualify at GEL and get a piece of the 4% Bonus Pool (8 percent if GEL qualified within 12 weeks of qualifying at ISC)

GED-qualified individuals can participate in a 5% Bonus Pool (10 percent if GED qualified within 12 weeks of qualifying at GEL)

be accepted into GEP and get a piece of the 6% Bonus Pool (12 percent if GEP qualified within 12 weeks of qualifying at GED)

qualify at CE and get a piece of a 7% Bonus Pool (14 percent if CE qualified within 12 weeks of qualifying at GEP)

Bonus Pools are funded as a portion of the total commissionable sales volume for ShopWithMe as a whole.

Keep in mind that ShopWithMe does not offer rank eligibility requirements.

Getting on ShopWithMe

The price of a ShopWithMe affiliate membership is not made public.

Christian Wiesner’s failing WellStar “sell tickets!” business strategy is being carried on by ShopWithMe.

To reiterate what Kari Wahlroos said in 2015 when she raised this issue:

You and I have had innumerable conversations about fixing the never-ending issues, but you never follow through. You have only given us two instructions for more than 18 months: “Recruit more” and “Sell more Tickets.”

I didn’t understand what it meant at the time, but after listening to one of Wiesner’s ShopWithMe presentations, I can say that all he spoke about was purchasing and selling tickets.

It appears that purchasing five tickets makes you a National Success Coach.

You may enter “Stage 2,” a meet and greet, at a nearby ShopWithMe event if you purchase 10 tickets.

You are eligible for “Stage 3,” a dinner with Wiesner, provided you and your downline together purchase 100 tickets.

It’s strange how Wiesner portrays the Stage 3 supper.

Stage 3 follows the event with a CEO dinner. joining Ghazala and Christian for supper.

You heard it right. Normal folks can only dream of having this.

This dinner table is quite exclusive. Normally, you have to be the Triple Champion to have that as a dream.

You’ll then say to them, “Oh, I would love to go home with you, but the CEO requested me for private meals,” when it’s time for everyone to leave the gathering and head home. I’m sorry I can’t accompany you.

Champagne is served at the introductions. It takes fifteen minutes, chitty-chatty, and one last snapshot. Many thanks, and goodbye.

Private dining is currently quite pricey. quite pricey.

Don’t call yourself a leader if you don’t have 100 tickets.

You will receive an invitation to a CEO dinner if your team sells 100 tickets.

Riiiiiiiigh………..t.

Wiesner refers to ShopWithMe promotional activities as “tours”.

I went back and reviewed the original BehindMLM analysis to see what sense I could make of WellStar’s pay structure.

Although rank names and compensation systems have changed, the majority of the issues raised in 2016 remain.

Whatever the cause, WellStar as an MLM opportunity is in dire need of a makeover, whether it be due to language barriers or the fact that it was established twelve years ago.

There are issues with the WellStar website’s lack of disclosure on retail prices, affiliate membership fees, and fundamental details of the compensation structure.

There is a lot of information on the compensation scheme, but not all is clear.

Six years later, the same is still true if ShopWithMe is used in place of WellStar.

It’s a really bad representation of Wiesner’s management style, but it makes sense if his only concern is promoting events where he will be the center of attention.

It’s important to note that Wiesner made no mention of retail sales whatsoever during the 47-minute “leaders” ShopWithMe marketing presentation I endured.

Recruitment and ticket sales are the two main focuses of ShopWithMe. the same issues Kari Wahlroos raised in 2015.

Heck, I couldn’t even confirm the existence of ShopWithMe’s online store.

According to Wiesner, ShopWithMe affiliates may create “full-time revenue with only 1 hour a day of work.” That is not possible, and it would be a clear FTC violation in the US.

For the time being, Wiesner is pitching ShopWithMe to the nations he can visit on his “tours,” especially Europe.

According to SimilarWeb, the majority of visitors to ShopWithMe’s website are now from Germany (32 percent, down 84 percent month on month from May to June).

Other nations where ShopWithMe is being pushed include Algeria (19%), the US (14%), the UK (11%), and Pakistan (9%)

But regardless of where it’s being promoted, Wiesner’s pyramid plan that began with WellStar appears to be continuing with ShopWithMe.

Shell firms collapsed on each other and WellStar finished with significant financial losses. No one should be surprised if ShopWithMe fails.
