Plimus Description

Plimus is an online e-commerce service founded in 2001 by internet marketers Tomer Herzog and Daniel Kleinberg. This service provides a way for online businesses to sell their services and products, keep track of and interact with customers, and recruit affiliate salespeople. Those looking to promote products as affiliates can come to this central website to search for the right products to sell.

Plimus Detailed Overview

When you have created a product that you want to sell over the internet, it can often be difficult to get the exposure that you need in order to see significant sales. Plimus is a program that vendors can join and list their products to sell. This doesn’t mean that the vendor doesn’t need a sales website, however. Their products and services can be featured in the program, but customers will still want to go to a website to read more about it. Through the program, a vendor’s product or service will be featured, and their sales website and email contact address will be listed.

One of the main focuses of the Plimus e-commerce program is bringing vendors and affiliates together. People who are looking to sell products or services for commissions can register at the site and then browse through the hundreds of products and services available for affiliate sales. You can sign up to be an affiliate salesperson for one or more products or services, then you can use a special link to promote them on your own websites or blogs. When someone purchases the product or service through this special link, you earn a commission through Plimus. When you’re browsing through the products, you will be able to see right away what they sell for, and how much of a commission they are offering to affiliates.

Vendors and affiliates who join with Plimus will have their own account pages where they’ll be able to keep track of sales and products. Vendors can set up their sales through their accounts, and there are also community forums within the program that can help people with their questions, or even help people find business partners.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

Plimus Reputation

Feedback on the Plimus e-commerce service has been mixed, with the majority being on the positive side. There are reports from vendors that say the program is a great way to get more exposure for products and services, and to recruit affiliates for even more sales. Affiliates report that with the right effort, you can make good commission income through the service. There have been some complaints about not receiving commission income on time, but the service usually does its best to solve any vendor/affiliate issues.

No support for 64 bit Windows, and unwilling to give refund

Their site squeezes in small print no support for 64 bit windows (If you even know you have it), and upon finding out this product was unusable by me, they refused to give a refund. Nice way to treat a would be customer. You can guarantee that when you do support 64 bit systems I won't be back. I consider you to be dishonest and more concerned about money than presenting a quality product or solid customer care.

Plimus support all kind of scam vendors and get commission from them

I purchased cell spy from this website.

First, the program I purchased and downloaded was not working properly. It could not be installed into my iphone at all. I tried to contact seller and James Duckett has replied and gave me another program which the description is differ (lower quality) than what it described in the first place. The program I purchased advertised that it could be activated only by calling at the target number but the link to the program that he sent me will only work only using a Bluetooth connection.

Anyway, I've tried to set it up with my iphone and tried to connect it with my daughter's iphone and it could not be set up as they said it could because it needed java! I've tried with my Blackberry and it also could not be installed properly! He mentioned before that I have to set up ir on my phone first but after I asked what is ir, he has never replied again!

This program does not seem to be able to function at all and it seems like a scam. So, I give up and I want my money back as it has a money back guarantee. I tried to contact the seller but there was no reply from him so I contacted Plimus as they said on the website that they will handle refund option for customers and below is what I got from them:

Plimus is a third party under contract with the vendor/manufacturer of this product to process orders and collect payments only. We do not have specific information about the product or have the authority to make decisions about discounts, refunds or any other product related issues.

You may contact the vendor/manufacturer directly for comments regarding their products or to request any technical support.

Regards,

Michelle-Plimus Support

I searched on website for other review on this website and found that there are a lot others who got cheated by buying products on this website. It seems that Plimus is supporting all kind of scam vendors and gets commission from them.

Opens Up Other Doors As Well

I just recently started with Plimus and that's what led me here looking for what people thought about it. What I have liked thus far is the easy to use interface and the search options which make it easy to find your niche products.

The only thing thus far I can say I don't like about it is when I sign up for one product then the company I signed up with takes it upon themselves to dump every product they have on my dashboard. Then Plimus does not have a quick way to delete all these products at once. Not a real big deal, just slightly aggravating.

While I have not yet had a lot of conversions yet, I have seen an increase in my Google Ad Sense as I have targeted products based on sound, high paying keyword research. When you set a sales page up right they may be interested in the product, but feel more inclined to click a Google Ad. Win Win either way!

Plimus support -a terrible experience

I placed an order through Plimus and after reviewing what I ordered, I asked for a refund. The vendor agreed that I was entitled to a refund and Plimus has since dragged the process on now for several weeks. I cannot figure out why they are giving me such a hard time about a simple process as making a refund. I have emailed instructions to them several times and keep on getting the run around. I just want to let others know that Plimus customer service has not done their job in my situation at all.

Hard Working Affliates

I sell many of my eBooks on Plimus because I think that the affiliates on there are willing to work hard to sell a product. The last eBook I advertised on Plimus was one about article marketing which I offered a 40% commission on. The first week I had 2 affiliates but the second week I got 3. The three first affiliates I got made very few sales but then things got going again when I advertises my product on IM forums and I got more affiliates. During the first month all together I got 12 affiliates and they made me 38 sales all together.

Not Much Better Than CB

I have promoted a few products from the Plimus marketplace in the past. I have not had much success with these products because some of them are just scams and some of them just don’t sell at all. I promoted an eBook about advertising on craigslist from Plimus and in the couple of weeks that I promoted it I only sold 6 copies. The commissions from most of the products on Plimus are good, but you could probably find the same type of commissions on Clickbank. What I do like about Plimus is that customers can pay with a CC, but besides that it isn’t much better than ClickBank.

Not a lot of Comp

I have promoted many EBooks from Plimus and I been doing so for the last few months. There are a lot of IM products on Plimus and there are many reasons why I rather promote them and not some other affiliate program. One of the reasons is because there are not a lot of affiliates compared to the number of affiliates on CB so it is much easier to convert traffic with less competition. Also my traffic has many payment options, not just PayPal, which makes the conversion volume even higher because some people don’t have PayPal but they do have credit cards.

The Truth Hurts

 
 
 
Backcharges on my credit card

I posted items from my site about two months ago when I registered. I was looking for other sites to sell my products to other people belonging to other audiences that I used to cater to.

I was happy because in a span of two days I got sales in my Plimus account. I did good sales there, but after a few weeks a customer asked for a refund for a reason I was not informed.

I saw back charges in my credit card statement regarding that product that the customer returned. The bad thing is that Plimus never sent me a reason why the customer returned the product and asked for a refund. I don't usually get refund requests.

Gives payment options to my customers

I use Plimus all the time to sell my eBooks because it gives my customers more payment options. Some of my customers were complaining because they did not have PayPal and they wanted to pay with their credit cards. I knew about Plimus so I got a sellers account and have been using it for 7 months now. My customers are very happy because now they can pay with their credit cards, PayPal or with virtual credit cards. I usually get 5 to 8 affiliates to promote my eBooks and most of them have promoted my products before. I will never stop using Plimus to sell my eBooks and find affiliates to promote my products.

Poor sales

Another site where you can buy stuff or even be a seller. I joined Plimus weeks ago and tried to sell my products there. I got some affiliates and was able to sell only two products. I got nothing against them but I think the site is just not too popular to sell something, maybe some promotion will help.

My products do well on my site but I guess Plimus caters to other audiences. What I like about them is that they use paypal.

Luckily I haven't experience some back charges like my friend experienced. Maybe my other products will do well on this site. I will come back to update.

The website interface is very easy to navigate

I am creating my own information products and I decided to try Plimus. I was looking for some affiliates to help me sell my products.

The website interface is very easy to navigate and the customer support helpful, but I couldn’t find any good affiliates. I was able to recruit 10 affiliates and only one of them was able to sell some of my products. Most of them are beginners and this is why I couldn’t earn more money. I decided to pull out my products after one month. I make a lot more money with my products on Click Bank.

Gave my customer payment options

I used Plimus only once to sell an EBook course I created back in January ’09. I was selling the course for $67 and I knew that some people did not have PayPal and that they rather pay with credit cards so I decided to use Plimus. I sold 18 copies of my course all together and each sale tracked perfectly. 7 of the people that bought my course used credit cards so I probably would have lost some of those sales if I didn’t use Plimus. I had the Payonner debit card so 3 weeks later the money was deposited into it without any problems. Plimus only deposits money into payonner once a month so that is why it took so long to get my money. Their service is cheap and it gave my customers options so I will definitely be using it in the future.

Not great for finding affiliates, good if you are one

I regularly make my own digital products and usually see pretty good sales when it comes to using affiliates, however I decided that instead of using my usual service for finding affiliates I would give Plimus a go. In all fairness this is definitely not the worst site you could look for affiliates at, but at the same time I only got half a dozen affiliates promoting my products of which only 2 made any sales. Needless to say I pulled my product from the site after a month and less than $100 profit.

In stark contrast, when I decided to go back to my regular vendor with the same product, I had a lot more affiliates promoting my product and 70% of those were making regular monthly sales and I saw hundreds of dollars within the first 2 weeks.

Apart from the lack of quality affiliates on Plimus, the site is good and easy enough to use. I would recommend going elsewhere for finding affiliates though as there are much more reputable networks you can use. If you are an affiliate there is no reason not to use this service as some products can pay out quite nicely.

Needs improvement

I listed two of my products on Plimus and they didn't perform very well. Although I was able to recruit about 3 affiliates and make a few sales, I was not happy with the slow performance of my products. The site is easy to navigate through and the customer service is great, but I think they need to improve on vendor promotion tactics.

I had an issue with one of my affiliates who had made a sale, but unfortunately the customer was not happy with the product and requested for a refund. They did a double charge back on my credit card for this and I wasn't happy with that at all. My two products perform very well on click bank and pay dotcom but plimus is not my cup of tea. I have so far pulled my products off because of low performance.

The affiliates that are on plimus are mostly either beginners or amateurs which is another setback for plimus and that’s why products don't perform very well there.

Ok service

I was using Plimus to buy products, and everything went ok. When I started selling stuff, I had an issue of scammers. I got chargebacks and since they were using paypal as payment processor in, I was scammed for $1200 bucks, I couldn't believe they would let this slide and I stopped using them, the issues were not resolved. I will just stick to using my own credit card processing, and worry about chargebacks on that. When you have to watch out for your self this much, you might want to think again using them for service.

I was able to recruit 2 affiliate salespeople

I am using this e-commerce service and I am very pleased. I can easily communicate with my clients. I like to receive feedback. This way I can change my product if necessary. Thanks to "Plimus" I was able to recruit 2 affiliate salespeople.

The system is very simple. Internet marketers will list their programs and get exposure. I listed some of my products and I was able to sell 5 of them until now. This system didn’t bring a lot of clients yet, but it’s good enough. I can easily keep track of how many products I am selling. I also enjoy their community forums.

Worked good, but my product didn't sell well

I used Plimus a month ago to sell my only product that I made and was hoping to be successful. Well that turned out to be a bust. Even though the site was great and really easy to use, I never made any sales. The support was really great and had my account set up and my product ready to sell within a day. I would go back to this site if I ever decide to try and sell a product again, which I don't think I will, but other than that the site and their support were very helpful and had no problem helping me get started and had everything set up that I needed to sell really quickly.
