Hyip programs, vs revshare- What’s all the squeak about?

In recommendation business, if you don’t know what is going on, it’s definitely got something to do with money. It is either lack of it, excess, its division between programs, instead of using just one, as well as the question of who gets the commission.

But to the point: today, I will write a bit about Hyip programs and revenue share programs – about differences between them, and what they have in common. I will also write about reasons why Hyip users rage against revshare users, and the other way around.

According to its definition:

HYIP – (High Yield Investment Program) – Simply saying, they are high risk investment programs. The money you gain in them is disproportionately high, comparing to your contribution and the time needed to receive it. It may be seen a bit like a roulette, sort of a gambling (?), which may bring very high profits, but might as well swallow all of your money.

Because of the high risk and hyip companies’ muddled explanations of what their investing in and where do they get the money from for such a high bonuses and payments – those are systems, in which probability for losing equals 100% or more. People who enter those businesses consciously, know that they have to be extremely careful and work with a suitable awareness and strategy.

What strategy? In my opinion: withdrawing your contribution as soon as possible.

Being unable to check, where a hyip company gets profits from (show me a business, that offers you 150%, 200% or 300% of your contribution back within 40 days…), should be a good enough reason for you to assume that if you put your money in this program – you will lose it. Honestly. I am not a genius, but in my opinion, if you want to sign in to those programs, you should always use the money (if you are really convinced it is a right decision), that you can spare, making sure, you are not emotionally attached to it. For example, you have $100 and you don’t know what to do with it. Your bills have been paid, you children are fed, you don’t have any debt, OK, you decide to pay it into hyip program. After 40, 50, or 20 days, you withdraw $150, $200, even $300. Or… a program collapses after 5 days and you do not withdraw anything. Maximum risk.

Important: Hyips are typical investment programs. After paying in your contribution, you do not have to do anything, apart from withdrawing your money. And it is done after 20 or 30 days, not after 3 months of reinvestment. Everything in hyips happens quickly. Very high risk, very high profits, or a fast loss.

Revenue share – they are advertisement programs, that will share their profits with you, if they have any. If not, you wouldn’t get anything.

Revenue share programs (well… at least some of them) put extra attention into security, outside sources of finance and owners’ reputation. They offer lower percentages if it comes to potential earnings.

Revshare, in comparison to hyip, is not an investment. You are not investing your money out here, but you buy advertisement services. If revenue share company has good profits,, you may receive your money back for your purchase + additional bonus. If they don’t have enough money, you wouldn’t. Percentages are pretty low. You may receive a maximum of 110%, 120%.

In addition, revshare programs have a lot of restrictions, which you often would not see in HYIPs (I mean well-prepared revshares). Those are: limitations on amount of daily withdrawals, restrictions on referal commissions, disabling an option for withdrawing your commission, unless you’ve bought an adpack with it, etc.

Similarities between hyip and revshare:

strzalka Both of them offer money earning possibilities, which are not guaranteed (they may shut down, and… ‘leave with your money’).

strzalka Both are risky and both are exposed to hacker attacks and other outside factors.

strzalka In both of them, to earn money, you have to: a) pay some money in, b) recommend a program to others

Differences between hyip and revshare:

strzalka Hyip programs are typical investment platforms. Revshare programs are not an investment.

strzalka In hyip programs you don’t need to buy anything. In revenue share you buy advertisement services.

strzalka Hyip programs inform you, what they are investing your money in, but in 99% of cases, you’re not able to verify that. Revenue share programs use your money for a) company development and wages for operating personnel, b) bonuses for users.

strzalka Hyip programs would not inform you whether they have any outside sources of finance. All you know, is that they are investing in e.g. real estates, medicines, transport, machinery, and other fancy things. Revenue share programs do inform you whether they have any outside sources of finance, and those are often published on their website (e.g. advertisement platforms, affiliate programs with booking, amazon, etc, ads sold within a company, online games, sales of courses and e-books). Note: in revenue share you would get informed about outside sources of finance, but they won’t tell you how much income these sources actually bring.

strzalkaHyip programs offer high profit percentages within a short period of time, while revshare offers lower percentages over a bit longer period.
In HYIPs, it is rare, that you would know who actually owns the business, or who runs it (no names). In revshare, you are usually able to find out who an admin is, how he/she looks like. You would also be able to see their YouTube videos and FB profile – it is not a rule, but it is common.

strzalka Hyip programs do not usually last online, for as long as revshares do. However looking at some businesses from 2016, which were meant to stay on the Internet for ‘long’, but started encountering major programs after 3 months already, while few HYIPs, run for a year continuously, regularly paying out money to people, it is difficult to say that it is definitely a rule that all hyips close quickly, while revshares not. Risk is there all the time, in both of them.

strzalka Hyip programs are classed as investment, when filling out your tax returns. Revshares are not an investment, they are advertisement platforms.

strzalka Hyip programs less often ask for identity verification of their users. Revshares – more often. That’s why, in hyip, there is higher risk of people opening multiple accounts within a program, or trying other ways to accumulate higher profits. In revshares, the risk is lowered, because of identity verification (but… it does not apply to every single revshare).

Why do revshare users rail at hyip users?

Reason no.1 is easy: because they think that hyip programs are more risky (it does sound strange, because we all know that the risk is everywhere, and you would not get guarantee in any of them). 🙂

Reason no.2: people who work in revshare believe, that their programs are more ‘stable’. Is it true? I don’t know, because in both, there is 100% risk. One and the other might run continuously for a month, half a year, or a year, as well as get closed out of sudden.
Reason no.3: Money. Revshare users, who are used to 120% profits, are not able to get convinced to possibility of 170% profit. As the risk is similar, a lot of people prefer to risk more for a higher gain. People who work in revshare, are ‘losing’ potential referals for their program, because other people rather risk their money in hyip. What’s understandable.

Why do hyip users rail at revshare users?

Reason no.1: because if there is risk in both of those program types, why risking your money for a lower percentage. It sounds logical, doesn’t it?

Reason no.2: hyip users say, that their programs are as ‘stable’ as revshares. What means, they have… 0% of stability and no guarantee. 🙂 It think, there is some truth in that one as well. Two ways of looking at it, and there are reasonable arguments on both sides…

Reason no.3: Money. People who use hyip programs, with potential earning of 170%, are not able to understand, why would people risk the same, for a lower percentage. And there is 1 more specific thing to it: if there had been revshare programs, with well-known admins and widely published outside sources of finance, but they still got closed, why not to risk your money in places, where you’re not informed about all these things, but there is high percentage of profit?

And so on.

However, according to my new year observation, I have found, that typical revshare environment and typical hyip environment are starting to slowly mix up. There is less people now, than before, who work only in revshare, or only in hyip. We are more often choosing both. If we diversify our risks and our money anyway, why not to work in those two sectors? It is similar, as with using cryptocurrency, mlm-s, and other types of programs, that allow us to earn online.
The market is definitely changing and developing, and there is no doubt in that.

And in the end, few words from me: I work mainly in revshare programs, but recently I have started to use hyip ones as well (I am checking the ground). I cannot complain at either of them. There is only one difference. If it comes to hyip programs, I am not convinced whether to recommend them on my blog.


Because a lot of people, who read my blog, are fairly new to earning money on the Internet. I have about 1000 views a day. Majority of these people, have no idea about risks, as well as the fact, that they may lose. They are treating those programs, like something that would provide them with great income for years. They do not choose adequate strategy of quick contribution withdrawal. How they look at it, is: ‘I will sign up, pay the money in, work with it for half a year and then we will see’. In hyip program, which are very risky – in half a year, they might realize, nobody even remembers when the program got closed… Of course, it is not a rule, because there are hyips, which exist and pay out for a long time and the market is continuously changing – both revshares and hyips are trying to improve, what their precursors have messed up. But it does not happen everywhere.

People, who have worked in it for long, know how to use hyips, or they listen to their sponsors. Newbies are often more naive (I’m sorry, but it is the truth), that a program will last ‘just a month longer, just two months, then three’, and then they wake up with nothing and without a single withdrawal.

So: in this blog, I recommend and describe revshare programs, in which longer existence I do believe (but neither me or you, can get a guarantee that it will last!). Underneath each article, you may find updates – if something changes within a program, I write about it. Whereas, when you notice my partner link to particular program has disappeared, it means that I have decided not to promote it any more. I might still use it myself, but due to various worrying signal I receive (sometimes accurate, sometimes not), I do not want to promote it to other people, as my inside sensor says, I might be getting someone into trouble. And I do not want that.

However: I do not recommend hyip programs, because I do not want new users, without experience and knowledge about the topic, to sign up through my link. Not without an awareness of high risks.

If you work along with me already, or you are in a closed group of my partners on Facebook, you probably know which hyip programs I use, but you would not be able to find my partner link. That’s because, I may only give it to you after a conversation through e-mail or Facebook.

Those are my rules. 🙂

How about you?

What do you think about working in hyip programs, vs revshares?
