DubLi is not a debt free company. It has incurred losses since the inception of their operations.
We recorded a net loss of $27.4 million for the year ended September 30, 2012, an increase of $23.3 million over the prior year, which was mainly due to transactional losses sustained in the auctions program, impairment of prepaid customer acquisition costs and land impairment charge on the Cayman Islands land parcel. The land impairment charge was arrived at based upon a subsequent evaluation performed by Management to reflect a change in the estimated fair value of the Cayman Islands land parcel as of September 30, 2012.

So why all of the sudden hype about DubLi?
Let’s Look A Little Deeper
Well, Tony Rush, one of the top earners at Empower Network recently defected and joined Dubli along with Matt Trainer and John Lavenia. These well known network marketing leaders formed ‘team WUKAR’ in the DubLi Network.
In case you are wondering what WUKAR stands for “Wake UP, Kick Ass, Repeat”
Whenever big known leaders make a jump to another company they usually send an email blast out to their entire mailing list.
Hundreds if not thousands of loyal and business opportunity seekers trying to get in early for the next big thing follow. After all its got to be a good opportunity if a leader makes the jump to it, right?
With their move comes a significant traffic increase on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube!
DubLi suddenly shot up thousands of rankings out of nowhere. Check out the surge in the chart below around September.
Leaders like Tony Rush immediately make huge commissions and then use it in further marketing promotions. He posted his quick earnings from his back office on YouTube! Don’t believe me check out this nice post on Tony Rush making $153,000 shortly after moving to the DubLi Network!
If you decide to join the DubLi Network that is totally upon you. You will not find any referral links within this business opportunity review.
Federal Trade Commission (FTC) doesn’t like revenue shares, non-physical products, and questionable network marketing companies.
Zeek Rewards was pretty much the same kind of company, and they were shut down by the FTC. So was Zhunrise (very similar cash back program), and guess what? Shut down by the FTC.
In my opinion DubLi is just like any other eCommerce and network marketing company. It’s too early to tell whether the FTC will go after DubLI and send a bunch of inexperienced network marketers and business opportunity seekers running to an other network marketing company later. For most people DubLi will be to steep of an investment to pursue. But if you have the funds and interested in the eCommerce industry, then DubLi is potentially a business opportunity worth looking into. There are survivors in eCommerce like Market America with networking marketing opportunities tied to it. Good Luck!
