I was asked to look into White Pins Plus via my YouTube channel and it is certainly an opportunity I had never heard of before. The main reason I had never heard of this opportunity is simply because it is mostly advertised to those in foreign countries, but those from the US do get roped into it from time to time.
So, is this a scam or a legit opportunity? Let’s find out together!

How Do I Know White Pins Plus Is A Scam?
There are many reasons as to why I know that White Pins Plus is a scam. Here are just a few of those reasons:
1. The Time Required Before You Can Receive Payment
When White Pins Plus was paying out their affiliate, each member had to wait a total of 91 days before they could get a hold of their money in their Paypal or Skrill account. Now, this is unheard of for many affiliate programs because most of them, Wealthy Affiliate included, usually pay out on the 1st of every month and no later than that.
There is no eplanation as to why the company does this. This is just their policy and it is a little fishy to me because if it takes that long to receive payment, it makes me wonder if you are even going to receive it at all.
2. Not Paying Out, But Members Are Still Able To Work
Upon signing up to White Pins Plus I was greeted with this message:
It is stated clearly that members will not be paid for their work, but are free to work if they so chose. What this tells me is that White Pins Plus began owing more money to their affiliates then they were making (a common trend among many online scams) and began refusing to pay their affiliates to save themselves. However, asking members to continue working is just downright ridiculous.
3. All of the White Pins Plus Complaints on Facebook
While White Pins Plus is more dedicated to an audience in Europe, there are even people from the US that fell for this scam. A lot of members from across the country began complaining about lack of payment some time ago when the company started to head south.
Just take a look at some of the complaints below.
My Final Opinion
Honestly this company has scam written all over it. While in their letter to affiliates stating that it was an error on a member’s part, it still doesn’t excuse the fact that the company is not paying out anymore. So, you can work all you want but the company itself has stated that they will no longer being paying their affiliates for their work.
In my opinion I would save my time and energy and promote a program that is actually pay you for your efforts.
