I responded to an ad on Canada Franchise Direct about online e-commerce and very shortly after I received a call from a salesman named Bruce Witkin. Mr Witkin assured me that if we bought one of their "packages" we would be making money from day one and recoup our investment within 60 days. We were told that the the Enterprise package with it's "MBV university training" was the gold standard with a price tag of $3995(about $5500 Canadian) was the way to go if we wanted to ensure success and that is what we chose. We gave Bruce our savings and was told we would have three days to back out if we were unhappy. However, the slow as molasses website that they sell to everyone took 4 days to be up and running. If we had known we were getting a website everyone else gets, we would have backed out, but it was too late. Imediately after we plunked down our savings to Mr Witkin, he started pushing expensive, but useless upgrades on us. We did let him talk us into Google verification for $295($400 Canadian) even though we had no sales. We were told that we would have access to over 14,000 retail products with a mark up of between 35 and 200%. Once we started advertising on Amazon, e-Bay, Bonanza, Etsy, Craigslist, Kijiji as well as social media,we quickly realized that so many other people are advertising the same products cheaper than we could get it as gold members of through Sunrise Wholesalers. If we had been permitted to see Sunrise's gold member prices before we gave Witkin our savings we would have walked away immediately. As for the "MBV tUniversity training" from Kurt Higgins that is 90 minutes over three sessions of him telling you to budget your time, and advertise. Kurt higgins is a total waste of time and money just like everything else about MBV. Mr Witkin lied about the sales, he lied about the profit margins, he lied about the websites, his company offers no active advertising campaigns for the thousands of dollars they charged us. All we have to show for our $4300($5900 Canadian) investment plus $50/month($70 Canadian) hosting fees is membership in the small and uncompetitive Sunrise Wholesalers that we could have purchased on our own for $99/year. My wife and I were going to invest in a real business opportunity where we would have had real customers, but instead we fell for the lies and non disclosure of Bruce Witkin. There are many good wholsalers you can become a member of for a nominal fee that will also help you market their products which are better than Sunrise. If you want a webstore, there are many options available you can utilize for as little as $15/month. MBV is a total scam and naturally you will kiss your money goodbye.
