Complaint Review: REVIVE Essential Oils - San Francisco California
REVIVE Essential Oils revive-eo.com REVIVE REVIVE EO REVIVE Essential Oils REVIVE Affiliate Program REVIVE Essential Oils Affiliate Program is a SCAM! San Francisco California
So let me start off by saying I had fallen in love with the REVIVE brand of essential oils. I kept seeing the posts on Facebook comparing those to popular name brands such as Young Living and DoTerra and that they were cheaper. So I gave in, made an order and fell in love. I made some more orders and made a few social media mentions.
Not only did I want to share my excitement, but I could get like a $10 coupon or something for anyone who used my code or link or whatever. I’m not sure what it was exactly anymore at this point. Fast forward, around the end of January or the beginning of February, I was approached by REVIVE EO who thought I would be a great candidate for their referral program. Of course, I accepted! I mean, why not?! I loved the product so why not promote it and maybe make some extra cash with it.
I was beyond excited and signed up. Upon signing up I filled out my information in the dashboard and began looking around then started promoting. I had an exclusive code for 10% off to offer new users off their first purchase. I knew that would work great with my readers. I also submitted it to the only coupon code site I use, DealSpotr. Now, this site I use for influencer purposes 99% of the time these days (as in product reviews), however, I wanted to take advantage and put my code on there. After all, the REVIVE EO did NOT have any terms or conditions posted on their affiliate site nor were any actually sent to me.
A short time later (about 2 weeks maybe) I received an email stating that was against their terms and my coupon code was changed. No big deal. I apologized and invalidated the code and only strictly promoted on my website and social media. I mean, I didn’t purposely violate the terms. I couldn’t possibly know if no terms had been sent. Every day I would log in and saw my earnings were quickly increasing. I figured my posts were a hit and doing very well. Particularly an article I wrote comparing my experience with Young Living and REVIVE Lavender essential oils was my top post when it came to writing about REVIVE.
Well, come the time of payout, the day of, April 1st, I was notified that they would NOT be paying me for violating their terms! Say what?!? I had $800+ in cleared earnings! As in, someone goes in and manually approves these earnings. So why wasn’t that checked before they were approved? Well, here’s the thing,
1) I did NOT violate those terms and
2) Again, there are NO terms posted on their program or sent to affiliates.
My new code, was NOT posted anywhere besides my own sites (which was approved by REVIVE). I, personally, did not submit, nor approve anyone else to submit my code to any other site or coupon site. Yet, REVIVE decided to treat me as such and reject my earnings. I submitted proof of all my posts to show I have been very active in promoting their brand. My posts show they have had hits on them. So what did they suggest? Only paying me $100 (which they are considering is ‘generous’ of them) and increase my affiliate commission amount for the month of April. Additionally, they want to give me a whole new link.
To be quite honest, that’s a crap deal. Why would I want to continue to promote them when they won’t even pay me for what they owe me now? They should pay me what they approved and what they owe to me considering I had done nothing wrong. I suggested they just pay what they owe and remove the coupon code totally so it would just not be good and mentioned how people scour the internet to submit coupon codes. So if this was an issue now, something I didn’t even do, it will continue to be an issue in the future. Regardless if it is me or other affiliates. It’s the internet. Things are public. Unfortunately, that’s how it works.
I have no control over what anyone else does, only over myself. Yet, I feel as if REVIVE is treating me like a criminal. I honestly feel like they are ripping me off and only wanted a free promotion. I have been trying to work with REVIVE Essential Oils on this for them to do the right thing and pay what is owed and even make suggestions to prevent this issue in the future. Unfortunately, they do not care about doing the right thing. What’s worse is the fact that they are doing this in the middle of the Corona Pandemic. So not only are they wrong in the business tactic, but they are morally wrong by hurting my family and myself personally.
After this experience, I can no longer recommend REVIVE Essential Oils or the REVIVE EO Affiliate program. While their oils are nice, I cannot support a company who could be so dishonest and greedy, particularly at a time like this. I am a very forgiving person and am willing to work with them if they so choose to have a change of heart and do the right thing. I am truly heartbroken over this experience and hope no one else has to find out the hard way that they are not the company I thought they were.
On that note, I also want to apologize to my readers who have supported them because of me as I truly thought I was bringing you an honest company to do business with and it is clear that is no longer the case. P.S. – They have sent $100 via PayPal so I’m requesting they pay the remaining $702 to make this right.
