What Is The Panvoya Opportunity?

Panvoya first launched in 2015 as a pyramid recruitment scheme, but has recently adjusted the way it operates with an updated compensation plan. They call themselves “The most unique and exciting travel program available today” and are run from Texas by Paul Koury.

Koury’s history of involvement with MLM companies seems to be limited to only one called Viradyne. Through this he offered a new search engine, and the company soon collapsed.

What Can You Tell Me About The Panvoya Products?

Panvoya offers a “Premium Membership Subscription” which gives members travel discounts from third-party suppliers. This subscription is available to both affiliates and retail customers, and costs an upfront fee of $299.97 followed by a monthly payment of $39.97. Discount packs that can be used towards the cost of purchases are also on offer. These come in the form of:

  • $100 credit for a cost of $39
  • $200 credit for a cost of $69
  • $400 credit for a cost of $99
  • $1000 credit for a cost of $199

What Can You Tell Me About The Compensation Plan?

Panvoya affiliates are able to earn commissions based upon their sales of the travel membership package and their ability to recruit new affiliates to the company. To be eligible to receive these commissions, an affiliate is required to have either bought or sold one premium membership subscription that must be maintained with the monthly fee. There are four ranks of affiliates, each of which require certain criteria to have been met. Affiliate rank determines how much a member can earn through the compensation plan. The ranks are:

  • Travel Affiliate – This is the basic affiliate rank and is achieved by joining the scheme and qualifying yourself for commission payouts (by either purchasing or selling a Premium Membership Subscription)
  • Travel Promoter – This rank is achieved by selling at least three active Premium Membership Subscriptions
  • Travel Director – This rank is achieved by either selling three Premium Membership Subscriptions and recruiting three new affiliates who, themselves, have sold three subscriptions OR by selling three subscriptions within the first 30 days of becoming an affiliate)
  • Travel Broker – This rank is achieved by having a downline which has at least 300 recruited affiliates in it

Panvoya offers five different ways in which affiliates can earn commission. They are:

  1. Direct Subscription Sales Commission

This commission is payable to an affiliate every time they sell the Premium Membership Subscription to someone (either a customer or a new affiliate that has been recruited).  Each sale gives a $50 commission, with a recurring $1 commission from the monthly fee. Travel Directors and Travel Brokers also have the opportunity to earn an extra $50 or $100 respectively by helping others close sales or by closing sales themselves.

  1. Residual Premium Membership Subscription Commission

This commission rewards Panvoya affiliates for the subscription sales that are made by their downline in a unilevel team. It gives affiliates $10 for each sale made by those that they have personally recruited, and commission for sales made by those lower down in the structure depending on affiliate rank.

  1. Residual Matching Bonus

This commission pays Panvoya affiliates a 25% match of the amounts being earned by those that they have personally recruited. Travel Directors and Travel Brokers also earn this bonus for commission being earned by second level affiliates (ones that have been recruited by members that the affiliate has personally recruited).

  1. Infinity Team Bonus

Travel Directors earn $250 for every six Panvoya Premium Membership Subscriptions that are sold by themselves and those within their downline, as well as $20 every month that the monthly payments are continued with.

Travel Brokers earn $350 for every six memberships that are sold, and $30 for the repeat monthly payments.

  1. Lifestyle Points

10% of Travel Director residual commissions, and 20% of Travel Broker residual commissions are paid to them with Lifestyle Points. These can be exchanged for “travel and other expenses” through Panvoya.

What Will It Cost To Join Panvoya

There is a monthly fee of $10 to be an affiliate member with Panova. To qualify for commission requires the sale or purchase of a Premium Membership Subscription which, if you choose to self-qualify and purchase yourself, costs an upfront fee of $299.97 and a monthly fee of $39.97 in addition to the monthly affiliate fee.

My Panvoya Review Conclusion

This is the new compensation plan offering from Panvoya, who have been in operation for the past 2 years. The crux of the viability of the proposition comes down to the Premium Membership Subscription, which, for a first year cost of $739.64, doesn’t come cheap. Can it really be worth paying that much to gain access to travel discounts? You’d surely need to be travelling a lot, and making large savings, to mean this is even close to being useful. Unsurprisingly the company doesn’t release details of the number of membership sales that are made, and you’d be wise to investigate the experience of anyone trying to recruit you if you are considering becoming involved with Panvoya.

The danger here, especially when “self-qualification” is encouraged (the company say themselves that “we will assume that each affiliate is a product of the product and purchases a premium membership”) is that there are no actual customer sales of the subscription, and that the only sales being made are to those affiliates who want to become eligible to earn the various commissions.

There’s a very fine line here- if the sales are about 50/50 between affiliates and customers, then the proposition looks potentially viable. If, however, the majority of sales are simply to affiliates, then the company is pushing forward a recruitment focused pyramid scheme.

The commissions being offered need to be subsidized by income coming from subscription purchases, otherwise they will be being fully funded from the subsequent investments that are being made by new affiliates. If this is the case then the company will eventually falter and the majority of members will lose out.

There are ways that the company could take steps to prevent themselves from falling into this pitfall such as excluding affiliates’ personal subscription purchases from the qualifying sales, but they have so far chosen not to do so. This, along with the blurb that all but says that they expect affiliates to be purchasing the subscription, would imply that subscription sales are not as good as they would want, and they need alternate ways to encourage purchases.

Panvoya is offering an interesting proposition in an area that is covered by MLM companies often, but there are legitimate questions as to the validity of what they are doing. It’s completely possible that this is a sustainable model, but with the high cost of subscription and lack of tangible evidence that many of these are being sold, it looks more likely that it’s operating as a pyramid scheme. If you are considering involvement, make sure that you ask for evidence of sales figures to retail customers and proof that it’s enough to support the compensation plan that is being offered. If it is, then you could do well. If not, then you’d be best looking elsewhere to make an investment.

Hopefully, you have found my Panvoya Review useful.

I wanted to give a lot of details because there have been other review of Panvoya which were a bit thin on the detail side.

No matter what happens, if you really want to succeed with any business, you have to learn how to market properly.

And, my training below will help you do that and make money!
