In this Warrior Plus review, I want to share some important reasons why I, an affiliate marketing expert am not a big fan of this site and 5 reasons why.
Depending on who you hear it from, some consider Warrior Plus to be a goldmine for making money online through promoting MMO products, while others (most notably customers in my experience) call it a scam. So where exactly is the truth in all this?
Well there’s several truths in my opinion and I’m going to give you my objective take on the site, the whole subject of if Warrior Plus is a scam and try to keep it as polite as possible, even though my opinion of the Warrior Plus site aren’t all that positive (believe me, there’s a lot I want to say).
Quick info on Warriorplus:
What is Warrior Plus all about?
It’s a website that hosts programs that generally are about make money online niche related subjects and allows affiliates to join their network and promote these products.
How do you earn from Warrior Plus?
You first have to sign up with Warrior Plus, get approved and then you can promote one of their many products and get paid commissions when you make a sale.
Who owns Warrior Plus?
The official owner of Warrior Plus is Mike Lantz.
Is Warrior Plus a scam?
No I don’t believe Warrior Plus is a scam, but the way it functions and how many poor programs it hosts makes it a very unfavorable program to join in my opinion and experience.
My personal history with Warriorplus summarized:
The long and short of it is that when I did a lot of reviews for make money online products, a lot of them came from Warrior Plus. I did purchase many of them and in MOST cases, they were absolutely awful. In some cases, I would even call some of the products I purchased there scams.
However, products on the network and the network itself are 2 different things, and my direct experiences with Warrior Plus were basically me quitting in trying to get refunds/complaints handled because they were basically useless (it’s one of my complaints). Therefore:
My rating for Warrior Plus: 1 out of 5 stars
To fully explain why I give Warrior Plus a low rating, I have to get into the details of the 5 reasons why and so:
Now onto my personal Warriorplus review and why I’m not a fan:
1) I have seen/bought way too many poor quality MMO programs on Warriorplus:
In my honest opinion, I think there are TOO many bad programs on the Warrior Plus marketplace that in some cases you could argue could be scams.
Personally, I do not see what Warrior Plus does about these programs. I assume they have some sort of filter or qualification in place, but the sheer number of bad programs I’ve seen and have others mention coming out of Warrior Plus used to be shocking and now it’s just the norm. In short, most of the top affiliates I personally know and trust want nothing to do with Warrior Plus or the programs there.
2) Yes you can make money as an affiliate/vendor in Warrior Plus, but is it worth it?
To me it isn’t. A lot of people LOVE to brag about Warrior Plus being an awesome place for making money online and show off their stats (many use Muncheye alongside this site to do product launch jacking), but I have personally seen a lot of these same people and others just spam these offers and use clever copywriting tactics to mask the true value of the promotion they are pushing to make it seem like the garbage being pushed is gold.
I have personally run into this a lot myself, where I will see an amazing sales copy for a program out of Warrior Plus being pushed bragging about so and so program being:
- Easy to use and make money online with.
- Done for you affiliate marketing programs.
- Extremely beginner friendly and push button.
- The easy hack to make so and so everyday.
- Copy and paste type wording to make it sound like it’s a get rich quick scheme.
Then, after buying the said program/s, I would notice the following:
The sales copy and the actual members area and what is taught could not be further apart and the actual value of the program is close to $0 if not that and to get the REAL value, you need to buy upsells.
3) Upsell schemes are where a lot of the people make their money:
In short, I have found a lot of people use Warrior Plus (both affiliates and product owners) to push extremely low quality and even scam programs and through their upsell schemes promote other garbage to make themselves money that frankly doesn’t serve the customer.
4) Warriorplus reviews (at least from Trustpilot) are extremely poor:
If you don’t believe me, have a look at the Trustpilot score for Warrior Plus and you will notice a eerily similar complaint. Here’s a screenshot to save you the time:
As someone who understands what ethical affiliate marketing looks like, I refuse to participate in this cycle just to make money online.
Note: I am perfectly aware Warrior Plus isn’t the only platform which has this problem. Tons of other popular affiliate networks like JVZoo, Clickbank and many others have this issue. I’ll get to them in another post, but trust me, I didn’t forget about that!
5) Getting a Warriorplus refund for one of the products you purchased isn’t always easy (their customer service could be way better):
If you have a problem with a program/product you purchased from Warrior Plus and perhaps want a refund, you’d think you can come straight to them and figure things out right? Wrong.
In my experience, when you have an issue with the program you bought and seek a refund, guess you have to contact? The product owner. At least that’s what Warrior Plus’s customer support told me. And this is even prevalent on their own support page:
What “may be” an improvement is that Warrior Plus might take action against a vendor who has many complaints, but this is a far cry from real support in my opinion. For example, if I have issues with a product I buy on Amazon, guess who I contact? Amazon. And furthermore, I get the refund without issues.
With Warrior Plus, you may as well flip a coin and hope you get a good vendor who doesn’t give you problems (which I have had before). And my only solution to get the refund was to contact my credit card company and dispute it there directly.
My personal opinions and conclusions on Warrior Plus:
In my opinion, Warrior Plus attracts some of the worst make money online programs I have ever seen, and in my opinion, it’s not because they want to but it’s because they make it so easy for them to do that.
There’s a BIG reason why many people, at least in my circles and TONS of people who have purchased products from Warrior Plus are not happy and because this cycle continues, I would not be surprised if Warrior Plus ultimately suffers in the end (their reputation certainly has so far).
I honestly want to see them succeed, but the way they are doing things now and have been for years is not helping their reputation grow and once again, if you are someone seeking to do business through Warrior Plus, you CAN make money through them, but in my opinion you have to be VERY careful about which products you choose to promote (if you are ethical that is).
And if you do have a valuable make money online product you wish to host, then perhaps Warrior Plus can suite your business needs, but that’s often subjective as many people think that about their products, when in reality they are awful.
Now if you are someone who seeks to make money online through things like blogging or in niches that have nothing to do with the make money online one, I don’t recommend Warrior Plus for this and recommend other/better programs to teach you how that’s done. And the one I recommend most is Wealthy Affiliate for that.

I started in warriors plus, spent thousands of dollars and endless hours taken away from my family trying to make the programs I bought into work. Nothing but ridicule, was what I received. Made fun of in videos and so many viruses downloaded to my phone and computer. My dropship store was even taken over. Now, I’m on the verge of bankrupt and just want the nightmare to stop. Can’t get on Facebook, or Instagram or even twitter without the constant bombardment is marketers posts of the same lies I frll for. Wish I would have found your article months ago.
Hi Josh, thank you for sharing this but I’m also very sorry to hear about your experiences there.
Hey Vitaliy, I bought some shady products promising to make money online from Warrior Plus. They were shocking.
So I wanted to understand more about this marketplace of the Warrior Plus to try understand what it is all about. I read that you thought they have some sort of filter or qualification in place. I seriously doubt this, there are so many dodgy products there.
I noticed that ungenuine internet marketers create products and sell them on this market place. I also noticed there are some serial product creators like plus others.
I guess there are new people looking to make money online at any time and these vendors on Warrior Plus prey on them with their flashy sales pages promising easy push button profits. As we know nothing can be further from the truth. I can see your alternative is about building a real online business and not this flashy over-promising Warrior Plus products.
Hi John thank you for sharing the cold hard reality of your experiences and I’m honestly just an optimist which is why I am trying to keep it positive about Warrior Plus when there’s so much negative to share. I also had to remove the mention of the marketer you mentioned just in case but I know exactly what you’re talking about and appreciate you sharing all of this.
OMG I nearly mis-read your article for the Warrior Forum. In any case is there really any difference between that forum and Warrior Plus? I know they both lack quality for sure!
I too believe that the MMO market has become plagued by absolute rubbish. Hence the industry has the bad stigma it does today. On the other hand to a beginner, the marketing hype will always lure new folks into the den! Your alternative is a much better path for beginners by far.
A great read and equally a nice visit down memory lane lol!
Hi Shelley yeah people get those 2 places confused but they are not the same thing. The Warrior Forum is a bit more of a mix of a traditional forum with product launches that get released there too (kind of like Muncheye) and it’s also a place where people can speak to other marketers and get advice on MMO topics. It’s something I used to do (with no luck) when I got started in the business.
Talk about a flashback for a moment there. Lol Yes I see the distinction between the two. The similarities in quality are probably on Par! I never had luck in the Warrior Forum either. Unfortunately that is also where I started!
Sometimes you can find good advice there, but in my opinion only if you are experienced and can distinguish which info is garbage or not.
