CB Money Vine Review [Free Option]

Updated: October 12, 2019
by Ray Alexander

CB Money Vine is a "Done-For-You Reverse Income System", the latest product by Bryan Winters and Tom E. It's very similar to a previously released product, MoolaVine, but the system is simpler and more accessible to any users. Dubbed as a "reverse" system because instead of promoting one affiliate product at a time, end-users will get to choose to buy any product out of the given list. You as an affiliate will receive a commission accordingly. Today my CBMoneyVine review look into this recruitment-based system and find out if it's worth giving it a try.

CBMoneyVine.com - How Does It Work?

If you've been involved with affiliate marketing, you know what the CB stands for. CB Money Vine is basically a referral membership site with a list of 4,000+ products from ClickBank. 

The idea is, instead of promoting a particular ClickBank product, you just promote CB Money Vine. All the ClickBank products can be browsed within its platform. Your referrals have the option to shop around and, if they busy something from the list - hopefully - you'll make a commission, typically 30-50% (some up to 70%) of the product price.

Signing up with CB Money Vine is free, but you need to connect it to your ClickBank affiliate account to be able to receive commissions. CBMV will only allow you to do that if you take one of the following three options;

  1. Buy any product at any price from $5 and above from ClickBank and forward a receipt to CBMV every month - your eligibility as an affiliate will last for a month.
  2. "Autopilot" option - pay $20 to CBMV every month by direct debit. Or,
  3. "VIP" option (https://www.cbmoneyvine.com/joinvip.php) - pay $18.97 for the first month. Basically a dollar cheaper than option 2. But from the second month, you need to take either option 1 or 2 to keep your eligibility.

It means that you are promoting CB Money Vine as an online shopping intermediary, and also as another affiliate marketing opportunity to those who already have a ClickBank affiliate account.

CB Money Vine Review

The Creators

Both Bryan Winters and Tom E Mcting have been in the online business for the past 20 years, and they have collaborated to produce many bestsellers including IG Money Tree, Lazy Profit Engine, 5iphon Reloaded, Piggyback Payday, Arbitrage Underdog Evergreen, as well as CB Money Vine's predecessor, MoolaVine. Most of the products are systems to help new affiliate marketers make money.

The Positives

The idea of "reverse income system" is certainly unique, and what's explained in the sales page does make sense to some extent, such as;

  • Giving the choice of products to the buyers instead of encouraging them to buy one particular product, so that they can browse and pick whatever they want to buy. 
  • Therefore CB Money Vine is just like an online store. If you compare it with the Amazon affiliate program which only offers 3-10% commission rates, ClickBank's commission rates are a lot more beneficial.
  • This is a way to start affiliate marketing without owning a website, i.e. you don't have to worry about purchasing a domain, web hosting and all other maintenance/security aspects.

The Negatives

However there's a flip side to this too. 

  • It defeats the whole point of affiliate marketing, effectively tells the audience to "buy something, anything from here."
  • Although the list is categorized, ClickBank products are very specific. A very limited number of general goods are sold and cannot be compared with Amazon.
  • Your referral link is to CB Money Vine itself. So you expect your referrals to be affiliate marketers, and to sign up with ClickBank if they haven't already.
  • It means in essence, CBMV doesn't have a product to sell. Just like MoolaVine, this is a membership scheme for the sake of it. 

You see what I mean, you may be able to persuade brand new affiliates to join in, but they will be the ones to suffer - "buy something" to keep the membership but they'll have to find referrals to cover their costs.

ClickBank Products

ClickBank Product Listing

The sellers on ClickBank are generally trustworthy because the buyers are protected by good money-back guarantee policy. If they're not happy with the product, they can claim the money back via the admin office rather than from the seller directly. Also many products are unique, innovative and not necessarily available elsewhere online. It's a good marketplace and, CB Money Vine can give a good opportunity to introduce it to new users.

Having said that, the 4,000+ products are listed across only 23 categories and, you can only view each product detail by clicking text links one by one. The list doesn't display images (apart from the 6 "Hot Products" above). So if you have a particular type of product in mind, it's actually impossible to find it.

ClickBank Categories

Whereas if you visit ClickBank's homepage, you can filter search the products not only by category but by popularity, price range, latest, and the average rating. As a buyer, it's best to check the list on the homepage directly. You cannot find the best product via the CBMV dashboard, unfortunately.


As I've explained earlier, you will only be eligible to make money using CB Money Vine if you;

  • Purchase something that's priced $5 or above on ClickBank and send the receipt every month, or
  • Pay $20 every month (Autopilot Plan).

Clearly a lot more economical if you buy something for $5 and send the receipt, then you'll be eligible as an affiliate for a month, and keep buying something to renew your affiliate status every month thereafter.

The "VIP" option - $18.97 will not give any special benefits, so I wouldn't pay just to keep the membership. I'd rather simply sign up from the homepage (https://www.cbmoneyvine.com) for free, and find a meaningful product - whatever the cost - that would kill two birds with one stone.

Income Provision and Autopilot Plan

How much you can make with CBMV depends on the source of traffic that you may have. The CBMV's sales page itself promotes affiliate marketing, so it can be hard to get people to sign up unless they're interested in making money by referring others and also understand the system itself does not have a product.

It encourages you to promote membership across social networks, means it may be a good opportunity to introduce ClickBank as a good marketplace to your friends and followers.

As I mentioned earlier, the ClickBank commission rates vary from 30-70%, so do the math - if your referral buys a $5 product and the commission rate is 40%, you'll receive $2 commission. If they buy a $200 product and the commission rate is 60%, you'll receive $120, straightforward.

You're encouraged to join Warrior Plus if you haven't already, in case your referrals join the Autopilot plan - if each of your referral starts to pay $20 per month to keep their membership, 50% commission ($10) will be due to you every month. To receive it, you need to join Warrior Plus and request for approval as an affiliate.


CB Money Vine is a handy affiliate marketing method because it doesn't require you to have a website. It means literally, anyone can start it today, start promoting it across social media. The downside is, there's no sustainability because it won't generate leads for you. Your referrals sign up with CBMV and you won't have a backup plan for it. There's a good chance that your referrals simply sign up, do nothing and stay dormant.

For that reason, I would personally still recommend you to build your sales funnel and promote CBMV to your subscribers as part of your email campaigns.

Money-Back Guarantee (VIP Plan)

As I explained above, I would recommend you to join free and not take the VIP Plan, but if you do go for it and change your mind, you can contact the support center to get your money back within 30 days of purchase.

CB Money Vine Pros and Cons


  • Free to join.
  • Way to make money as an affiliate without owning a website.
  • The system is simple and easy.


  • In essence, it doesn't have a product to sell but it's purely a membership referral system.
  • ClickBank product listing is not so easy to navigate.
  • Not the most sustainable way to make affiliate commissions.

CB Money Vine Review - Conclusion:

To be perfectly honest, CB Money Vine is not a useful marketing tool, not educational nor motivational. I wouldn't personally fancy promoting it just because it's an income opportunity - you refer people for the sake of the membership. 

Having said that, the idea of "reverse income system" - making a commission by promoting ClickBank as a whole - is unique. And also it allows anyone to start affiliate marketing. Whether the system is good for you or not - sign up for free and the decision is up to you.

  1. Hi Ray, I enjoyed reading your post. I totally agree with you about the whole point of affiliate marketing that it’s about making recommendations and helping others, not about recommending a whole shop hoping people to buy something.

    I too promote some Clickbank products and regularly check the Marketplace but the problem for me is that not many products inspire me really. Many of them claim a miracle solution to common problems like dieting or leadgen but I know they really are not. I would rather promote only the products that I trust. Not random products from Clickbank.

    I think the idea of CB Moneyvine is unique but it won’t work for me I don’t think. Thank you for your awesome review article, Ray. It was a great read for me.

  2. Do not ever buy any products from h***review.com because the owner says he will give about 20 extra bonuses if you buy from his site but they are all different from what’s described. I bought CB money vine from him but all I received was old PDF files and video files. None of them matched with the bonuses listed in his site.

    1. Hi Ash, I know what you mean… Yes he’s giving out a lot of free products in exchange for buying his affiliate products. Many other Warrior Plus affiliates do too. They offer 10-20 “bonus” PDFs which are all PLR licensed products but unfortunately they’re often not what’s being described but rather outdated how-to guides. Perhaps you can challenge them and see what they say? Thanks for your comment.

  3. Don’t buy it. If you want to make sales just promote Click bank products as everyone normally does. This system is too complicated for users. You might understand this but not many people will.

    1. Hi Simon, thanks for sharing your opinion. I think I agree with you. It’s tricky, you never know your referrals will fully understand the system even though it seems fairly simple to us.

  4. I have seen it sold erroneously and some of my followers have bought CB products but they didn’t know what to do with them. It’s not worth it.
    It’s not a scam but it’s not making you any money. Been there done that. Outdated system repeated I’m sick of it.

    1. Hi Kai, thanks for sharing your thoughts. But I’m not sure what you mean about your followers, were they missold some products by someone? Is it because of CBMV or the way it was promoted by the affiliates?

  5. Hey Ray, it seems that many solo ad sellers are promoting the V.I.P. option, I have seen it at least 3-4 times a day esp. traffic exchange sites. I was skeptical when I first saw it because it’s just another Moolavine and I know some customers from Udimi were complaining about Moolavine.

    I appreciate the fact that the CBMoney Vine is a simplified version, maybe it works better than the Moola, who knows, we’ll see. I totally understand that ClickBank products are generally trustworthy but most of them are digital products. You can’t really compare it to Amazon. Great review, good job. Thanks.

    1. Hi, thanks for your comment. I didn’t know Moolavine was receiving complaints. I’ve seen someone promoting it only recently, means the majority of people who already have an account with Moolavine may not be interested in CBMV or any membership schemes that use ClickBank in the future.

  6. CB Money Vine is a very good system. I must congratulate everyone who joined CB Money Vine for trying something new and unique.
    I have reviewed this system and I can confirm this is a totally legitimate system. There are already thousands of members referring other people and it’s about to go viral over social media.
    CB Money Vine is my No. 1 recommendation. Join now.

  7. I thought there was something dodgy going on. Some people say it’s 19 dollars and 14 days money back guarantee. Some affiliates try to sell it with extra bonuses but I know there all useless 5 years old ebooks. I googled it and found it available for free. Is this scam or what.

    1. Hi Fariz, there seems to be more than one sales page, but looks like the seller has changed some terms since the initial release. If you check the link in the post, you’ll see that 30-day money-back term is displayed. Both the sellers are legit and reputable on Warrior Plus. Thanks for your comment. I wish you all the best.

  8. Hi, you are right. When I first saw it, oh this is a great idea. But for a while I forgot what an affiliate marketing should be. I promote products because I think they are good and it makes me want to share them with my audience. Not because I want people to buy anything & everything randomly even though I could make money there is no enjoyment if I don’t have a reason to recommend. You got the point on this.

    1. Hi Stephen, thanks for your comment. Yes, your passion for whatever the product becomes the biggest motivational factor, but this is mainly focused on the scheme itself, and unlike many MLMs, it doesn’t involve a team building. So it really depends on how you feel and how many prospects you have.
