Welcome to The Sum Opportunity review!
The truth is that I got bored when I started this review on the Sum Opportunity however, things took a quick turn after looking the products for this mlm.
I’ve done enough mlm reviews, compensation plans and company website commentaries that some, after awhile, are legit boring deals.
You know how it is. You go to the pet store and you look at the fish tanks. All of those gold fish look the same.
You may or may not see a unique one in the “sea” of fish.
The Sum Opportunity falls into the fish that I ignore. They don’t shine, they don’t stick out and they seem like just another scammy business opportunity.
But, don’t let my thoughts be the sour taste in your mouth about the Sum Opportunity.
Read this Sum Opportunity Review and decide for yourself.
(Ps – I promise to be as unbiased as humanly possible after that analogy above….ahem….here we go….)
The Sum Opportunity Review – The Company
Are there rumors out there about the Sum Opportunity being a scam?
I have no idea because it’s so new that I only found a few mlm blogs even talking about it.
(Why not jump on the bandwagon right?)
So, let’s dig in deep and see what we find about the Sum Opportunity Company.
For one, they registered their website this past November. That means they are fairly new.
New mlms aren’t necessarily a bad thing.
A guy or gal named ML Andrews owns the domain.
Who could that be?
Using stealth detective skills that clearly only someone as cool as me could have, I was able to ascertain that ML Andrews is quite possibly a women named Melody White.
How do I know this?
Gotta love Google.
If you check out “The On Your Side LLC” you will see them using the same address as the Sum Opportunity.
Maybe Melody White has an alias? I have no idea.
I did find this Melody White (Update: It’s not this Melody White, but keep reading…it gets interesting…)
But she’s a Plexus Mlm rep. Or did she change teams?
Here is a photo of their website…..(but keep reading because things get a little freaky…..)
As I dug around (I like to to do that), I found some freaky freak stuff. For instance, on the backend of their site they have these awfully strange and intrusive gibber gabbering pages.
I’m guessing they are trying to look larger than they are, but it surely doesn’t give me much confidence in the trustworthiness and transparency for this money making opportunity.
(Know what I’m saying?)
Check out what I’m talking about….
(Poor Melody White if she isn’t even involved in this….her name is being associated with it whether she likes it or not. NOTE to Melody: Hey girl! If you’re not ML Andrews, you might want to clear it up in the comment section of all the blogs that say you might be….)
THIS Just in….. I just found another Melody White involved in Network Marketing. Check out this screenshot from Linkedin.
Chances of this being the person behind Sum Opp? Pretty darn good.
See that “On Your Side Techologies”?
It’s the same biz that created the Sum Opportunity website.
Hey Hey! Let’s go for super slething!
Ok..enough of that, now on to the Sum Opp Products…..
The Sum Opportunity Reviews – Products
It’s what they are calling a “Sum Shop”. In other words, it’s just an ecommerce shop.
They have a plethora of products that all have “great deals” BUT….
I have my doubts…..(please read on)
Here is one of their front page products:
Sum opportunity product pepper spray
Note the price.
Now take a look at this:
Note the price.
Now I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking ….
“Where’s the Freakin Deal?”
Sadly it looks like they are taking advantage of people who don’t bother to go elsewhere and check out pricing.
Don’t go saying..”But the Sum Opportunity pepper spray has a nifty camo pattern!”
I checked it out. You know what it came to for 12?
(BAD BAD JuJu….that’s all I’m sayin’)
Ok…so I’m generally a fair person.
Let’s check out another product.
Maybe it was just a fluke that I found that the first SUM OPP product was ridiculously overpriced.
So here is a quick view of another product:
It’s the Diamond Plate Pink Motorcycle Handlebar Grips
I was really disappointed when I saw this:
But don’t let that discourage you right?
The Sum Shop says that they give you a 25% discount if you’re a retail customer, 30% off if you’re an affiliate and 40% off if you are a Sum Opportunity MLM buff.
Let’s see what that comes down to using the first example:
I have myself a set of 12 Pepper Sprays from Sum Opportunity for $123.95.
Now assuming it hasn’t already been discounted (it has…because when I tried to check out, it kept the same price…..not sure how that is 25% off of any reasonable retail) here is what the best pricing looks like for each level of participation with the Sum Opportunity MLM:
- Retail Customers = $123.95 (if it is discounted…which it wasn’t it might be: $92.96)
- Affiliates = $86.76
- Sum Opp MLM Distributors = $74.37
That comes down to exactly a savings of NADA.
As a matter of a fact, the lowest you can get with Sum Opp is still TWICE as much as what you can get if you just hop around on Google.
Next let’s take a look at the Sum Opportunity compensation plan…
The Sum Opportunity – The Compensation Plan
The Sum Opportunity Comp Plan is a Unilevel network marketing structure.
This is where you have all of you Level 1 people who are under you. These are the people that you actually bring into the “opportunity”.
Then, you have level 2 (the people sponsored by your level 1) and a level 3 (the people sponsored by your level 2) and so on…..
With the Sum Opportunity you can earn money all the way to Level 7 in the following way:
- level 1 (people you sponsor) – 5% commission
- level 2 – 3% commission
- level 3 – 2% commission
- level 4 to 7 – 1% commission
The commission is taken off of the membership fee.
It basically comes down to earning $5 from everyone you get to join and then the lowest you earn is $.50 on everyone who joins in levels 4 through 7.
Cost of Joining The Sum Opportunity
The membership fee to join is $210 so that you can earn commissions. (Please don’t)
You can also just join as an affiliate for $25 but I hope you are secure in scamming people if you do.
(I’m no longer trying to be unbiased….it’s clear there is something amiss here)
The Sum Opportunity Review – Join it?
If you can find a great priced product, sure go ahead and knock yourself out…but consider this:
- How would you feel if you paid a LOT OF MONEY for something you found later to be, at a minimum, half the cost?
- Can you sell overpriced items and tell people it’s a great deal?
- Is this something that will allow you to put you head on your pillow at night and feel like you did a good job?
I don’t know about you, but selling overpriced items labeled as “deals” is not nice. It’s bad bad bad. And Karma doesn’t like it.
If you want to see what I recommend for a legit business opportunity, please don’t hesitate to check out the Job Killing Coaching program.
It doesn’t make you feel “icky” inside and you actually really help people.
Just today I got $3k in my bank account because of what I learned in this program….and the guy who paid me was happy to do it.
It’s no joke.
If you want to be considered for this invite only coaching program, schedule a call today and let’s see if you’re a good fit.
And by all means, PLEASE don’t join the Sum Opportunity. It makes me sad that people will actually try and join this, fail at it, and make people angry by selling false deals.

I wish you the best in your decision making,

A review just to promote another Product or Service at the end of your review, great review but if this is truely a review, why go ahead and market your own products and services to be better?
I see your point, however if you are a true entrepreneur you take note of opportunities.
In this case, I truly believe in a better product and I recognize that people who are looking for an online business might be a great fit for what I promote.
I was in those same shoes just over a year ago and spent nearly 3K in the wrong program.
Fortunately, I was able to get that money back and invest in something that has made me significant money and has given me skills to rank….which is how you found this post.
In addition, I NEVER try to down talk an opportunity unless I think it’s a complete scam.
My intentions are to find people who are looking for opportunities (such as The Sum Opportunity) and to offer an alternative that has worked for me.
(I’ve been in over 3 mlms, I know the struggle and I know many many people, who were former mlm earners, who were able to breathe a sigh of relief from the program I promote.)
I wish I would have found someone like me before I spent money before. I had no idea what I was doing and my upline coaches had no idea either. Today, I could actually go into a mlm company with a lot more confidence and knowledge about generating leads rather than wondering where I would get the money to pay for traffic to do so.
Thank you so much for commenting, I enjoyed answering this question.
This review is a mess. Nothing is accurate regarding the company owner or commissions. You need to do better research before posting a review.
Thanks for your comment. I spent quite a lot of time digging through the online opportunities that I investigate. In particular, I spent several hours on this Sum Opportunity Review. I believe the snap shots speak fairly well for themselves.
I find it hard to believe that you can “undo” photos from the exact website I’m reviewing, but I’d love to know where I’m wrong. I believe it’s more important to the people reading this to know more about the opportunity. Please, if you know something “from the inside”, please share.
I’m completely open to any corrections you have regarding your comment: “Nothing is accurate”. I certainly would love to know so I can let people know where to NOT go for information and what would be the correct thing to think about The Sum Opportunity.
