Commission Buddy Overview
What is Commission Buddy? It allows you to join a group of affiliates beneath Alan Magliocca. You’re provided with a website worth $3800 that supposedly will make money for you. You pay for HostZilla web hosting and your domain.
Commission Buddy’s philosophy is that you will earn money on autopilot by selling digital merchandise. The website is supposed to help you generate leads and traffic.
Remember, though, that it’s not realistic to think you will earn money on autopilot (also know as passive, or not doing any work).
How Commission Buddy Works
Steps to Earning Money:
Claim free website worth $3800. Choose a domain name. (You must pay for this. Cost: Approx. $10 per year)
Claim free autoresponder account. Sign up with HostZilla. (You must pay for this. Cost starts at: $13 and up per month + you must pay a $9.95 set up fee).
Insert ClickSure ID. (You can sign up for a ClickSure ID free).
Build 2 truly free websites with free hosting, by Clicking Here. This website builder is awesome because you don’t need any technical skills and it does not cost you anything. Your sites are monitored with 24/7 website support and hosting support.
The 4 sections in this area are Home, Training, My Campaigns, and My Credits.
Home is self explanatory-just the Home Page.
Training has 4 video tutorials explaining how Commission Buddy works.
My Campaigns is the area where you can see your campaigns. Campaigns are your product and your advertising of that product.
My Credits is where you can see and/or buy your credits.

My Personal Experience with Commission Buddy
After I entered my email address on the Commission Buddy sign up page, an image said I had won 125 free traffic credits worth $125.00.
What the heck is a traffic credit? Credits are used to create traffic to your website. 1 credit = 1 click to your website. More credits = more traffic.
I had to activate my account to receive the free credits. Activation also required me to choose a premium domain or my own domain. (You must pay for these).
Pros vs. Cons
- Simple to understand videos.
- Free Website.
- No free trial offer.
- You are not told upfront about the total cost of the program.
- There is an “Inner Circle” where you are told you can earn 5 figures and more per month.
- You must be invited to this circle.
- Not much technical and personal support.
- No in depth training or support.
My Final Thoughts on Commission Buddy
No response to any of my questions, many reports of complaints, having to buy more and more things to get the product to work and an unclear cost of the total product, are the main reasons why I named Commission Buddy a scam.
