Money Marketeers is a company that offers high-converting dropshipping stores. I’ve come across it on Instagram and I have to admit that the images they post on Instagram are very attractive with interesting quotes of successful people.
I wanted to know whether this company provides a legitimate opportunity or not. There are way too many companies with big promises and it’s always good to be aware of all the cons and pros even in the case of the legit ones.
You’ll find out further in this article that there is another organization called Money Marketeers of NYU, Inc. which is a serious organization based on charity. I would like to stress out that my review has nothing to do with Money Marketeers of NYU, Inc. I’m writing about Marketeers Money, a company that offers dropshipping stores and operates an Instagram account under that name Money Marketeers.

Money Marketeers Review: The Facts
Name: Money Marketeers / Marketeers Money
Dropshipping sites: 2 options:
– fully automate store per $1,197
– premium site per $1,797
Purpose: claims to provide you with a turnkey-website that will earn you money.
Should You Buy a Shopify Dropshipping Store from Money Marketeers?
Marketeers Money does not seem like a serious company, in my opinion. The company doesn’t provide any details about their registered office, tax number, or how they operate.
I am not saying that if you purchase a dropshipping website from them, you can’t succeed. If you put enormous effort into it and spend money on learning skills about marketing, you have a chance.
However, there are many factors to be taken into account to become successful in this way. Similar to MLM, it’s not as easy as it is often presented.
What’s the main problem with Money Marketeers?
The big confusing and misleading fact which was probably chosen on purpose is the name. There is a group called Money Marketeers, with a website moneymarketeers.org and it is something completely different.
Let’s have a look, shall we?
Money Marketeers, or Money Marketeers of New York University, Inc. has been in existence since 1946 and it has nothing to do with the company we are talking about in this review.
„Money Marketeers is a forum for engaging, meaningful and substantive dialogue with U.S. policymakers, senior Federal Reserve officials, and other distinguished speakers whose words and actions have the potential to influence the global financial markets.“
Money Marketeers of New York University, Inc. provides scholarships and it’s a 501(c)(3) charity.
As you can see, the name is almost the same. It is easy to confuse these two organizations and I think MarketeersMoney has purposely chosen the name of a serious long-existing organization to take advantage of their name.
I mean, MarketeersMoney.com and MoneyMarketeers.org are two different websites, but when you open the first website it shows:
See? Money Marketeers.
Let’s have a closer look at the website and try to find out more information.
Marketeers Money Website
The website looks very professional, black, and white with some green elements. It makes an impression of a finance site and a well-established company.
Missing information about the company
There is no information about the owners or anyone who is behind the company which is a big red flag for me. When you click on the „about us“ page, this is what you get:
„At Moneymarketeers we believe that effort is always rewarded.
We are a worldwide company dedicated to helping others to literally «make money» and we offer our prebuilt stores to do so, it is the best way to achieve so, if you don’t have one yet, what are you waiting for?
We have managed massive efficiency creating optimized stores.
We set up everything for you so you only need to market it!“
The claim itself is very nice. I’d love to believe that they want you to make money. But in fact, what they most care about is to make money.
If you click on the page called „contact us“, you just get a contact form. Again, absolutely anonymous. No information where the company’s based, who is the owner, nothing.
You normally get the information about the writer even on normal blogs. Here you get nothing.
Terms Of Service
Reading the Terms of Service on the website, I found out that they act based on Spanish law. Again, no name of the company or the owner there.
United States of America
There’s nothing wrong with that. But I’m still not happy that there is no information whatsoever where MoneyMarketeers (or MarketeersMoney?) is based at. Registered office? Apparently a very-well hidden one.
„Our website and applications are owned and operated by MONEYMARKETEERS.“ Again, no name, no owners.
„Our company is registered with the authorities in Spain.“
Registered in Spain, but offices in Sweden?
Money Marketeers on Instagram
As mentioned above, the Instagram account of this company contains beautiful images with catchy quotes. You can find them as Money Marketeers (not Marketeers Money).
Here is a screenshot:
There is no picture of the owner(s) or anyone who creates the pictures and quotes. Again, anonymous.
I was looking for some evidence about Marketeers Money on YouTube but haven’t found anything at all. It’s quite surprising.
However, I think the video here explains very well that there are some costs when you start dropshipping, so if you are considering getting a turnkey dropshipping website, I’d recommend you to spend a few minutes watching the video. It’s well worth watching.
Conclusion – Money Marketeers: A Legit Opportunity?
After my thorough research, I have to say that I wouldn’t trust this „company“ the smallest bit if I was looking for purchasing a turn-key Shopify website.
I can’t imagine buying a website from them and experiencing problems later on. What would I do? Who would I contact and where?
Maybe they do help, but what if not?
All serious programs provide information about the company, the owners, and most of them show their faces to the public. Many also record videos on YouTube so you can immediately tell if the person resonates with you or not.
I’ve been a member of a serious program teaching how to become a successful blogger and/or affiliate marketer. The program is called Wealthy Affiliate and it has been on the market for …. years. You can find the information that the founders of it are Kyle and Carson, two Canadian guys, who have still been active in the platform community.
If anything happens, you can always contact either them or the site support guys inside the program.
Many other legitimate programs teach you how to become an affiliate marketer, how to start a blog, how to build a successful YouTube channel. Not all of them are good, but the serious ones always tell you it takes some time to become successful.
Every person is different, but in general, I’d say you shouldn’t expect to get significant amounts of money earlier than in one year. It may take several years, but if you are really ready to work your butt off and spend several hours building your new online business, you can see nice results in several months.
I started with affiliate marketing end of 2019 and it took me a few months to earn my first affiliate commission from Amazon. I’m still in the process of creating my full-time income with affiliate marketing but I can see my commissions are on the rise.
If you are looking around the opportunities and haven’t found anything serious yet, I really recommend you to consider affiliate marketing. It might sound weird or complicated and you might be thinking: well, I’m not a marketer, I know nothing about it.
I knew nothing about affiliate marketing either.
I had some experience with MLM and it completely put me off all MLM companies in terms of business opportunities. Most of them have great products but I don’t like their ethics and the commission scheme is often not just.
In 2019 I came across affiliate marketing and decided to give it a chance as it was resonating with me.
Mainly the fact I don’t have to promote anything, I don’t have to try to convince anyone about the qualities of a product and make them buy it.
I wrote a detailed article about affiliate marketing and if it’s good for everyone. You can read it here: Can I make money with affiliate marketing?:
Money Marketeers Review Update – The E-Mail Conversation
A month after publishing my review, I received an e-mail from Money Marketeers saying that my Money Marketeers Review was „misinformed“ and that the company would love to answer my questions so I can create a reliable review.
Well, first off, I don’t think my review is not reliable. It is based on my opinion and the information available to everyone on the internet.
However, I replied to the e-mail of Money Marketeers asking what exactly was misleading in my review i.e. which information was inaccurate or not true.
This is what I got as a reply:
Most of it is not true.
Will send you everything that you need to correct, in the meantime you need to take that down.
I couldn’t see any reason why I should take the Money Marketeers review down. My reply was:
First send me the information WHAT EXACTLY is inaccurate and not true in my article and then we will see.
I received a reply almost immediately saying:
„I am really busy today and tomorrow, MOST of the article is wrong and false.
I will detailly explain you everything on Friday.
So please take it down NOW before you hurt our honest company even more than you have.“
I would like to stress that none of the e-mails was signed, not even with the first name of the writer. Just nothing.
This was my response to Money Marketeers:
„You are very busy but keep replying to me in seconds, right?
You said in the first e-mail that you are ready to answer all my questions, so I’m waiting for that.
I don’t have any reason at all to take it down until you convince me to do so.“
A reply arrived in a sec again:
„Yes, I reply fast because I am working on my computer, getting a website ready for a client which is my priority right now, not going over the whole article today when I have a client waiting for his high quality website.“
The day after I received another e-mail with my review with some highlighted comments that were supposed to explain what was „wrong“ according to the company.
They are saying they have chosen the name a long time ago, not to confuse anyone – well, why is it so similar to Money Marketeers, Inc., and even though the website is marketeersmoney.com the logo is Money Marketeers? No one has explained that.
To the part of my review where I was saying I haven’t found anything on YouTube from this company, their information was:
„We work on Instagram because it’s where our audience is we would start from 0 on Youtube and we don’t have the knowledge to create videos.“
All in all, I didn’t get anything that would change my opinion. So this is what I replied, and I think this explains my concerns the best:
you still haven’t told me the name of the owner(s), what kind of company you are, what’s the address of your registered office. Every serious company provides this information. I am a member of various programs and always know the names and the faces of the persons who are behind that.
All the e-mails you’ve sent me were not signed.
You’ve been creating high-quality websites since 2015 and don’t know how to make a video? That must be a joke.
Ok, you operate on Instagram only. Any picture of you there? No.
Serious people don’t hide behind words and images.
That’s all from me.“
A reply after a few minutes:
„First of all, I need you to know that the name we want our clients to have is our company cause they don’t work with the founders, they work with the team and the founders aren’t the only ones so they work with the whole company.
We are 6 members who work in the company’s address:
Calle de la Constitución 75, Madrid, Spain
Of course, we know how to make a video, we just focus on Instagram because that’s where our audience is, if you check other business pages like ours on Instagram no one uses YouTube because we are not on YouTube, we are no Instagram. About a picture of us there we would never post a picture of us the as it’s the companies page, not our personal pages, again I suggest you go and look at other business pages.“
So because there are other business pages like that, it is ok?? Am I the only one who thinks that serious business owners are proud of their work and show their faces?
Even if the owners are not involved in the business activities anymore and have a team working for them, wouldn’t they be proud of the company if it was a successful business? Wouldn’t they want to show their faces?
Currently, I’m a member of Wealthy Affiliate and Income School, two high-quality programs teaching honest techniques in the sphere of blogging, affiliate marketing, and online business.
In both programs, I know the names and the faces of the owners, even though they have teams of employees.
When I go to ANY website, I always look at the About page, apart from e-shops. Huge online stores usually don’t show the owner(s), but blogging websites, online education programs, and platforms as well as sites offering services to clients are supposed to have a few words about the owner(s) and photography of them.
Serious companies do.
Money Marketeers Testimonials
To be really objective, I went through my review again and I also looked for some experience or testimonials with Money Marketeers from clients.
To my surprise, I haven’t found any.
There is a page called Testimonials on the Money Marketeers website but it’s empty. For a company operating for several years, well…at least strange.
Money Marketeers – Conclusion II
As I said before, Money Marketeers or Marketeers Money might provide you with a Shopify dropshipping store that might be working and you might earn money with that.
I’m not saying that if you buy a Money Marketeers Shopify store it won’t work. All I’m saying is that to me it looks shady and I wouldn’t buy the „high-converting dropshipping store“ from them.
If I was looking for a serious opportunity on how to build a long-term online business, I’d learn about affiliate marketing and join a program that would teach me how to do it step by step.
But it’s up to you.
