Roger Langille?

Profile picture of the author schnisz by
Hey Warriors, anybody have any info on this guy? Someone sent me to a pre-recorded webinar of him talking about his Amazon/Ebay arbritage system. Sounded interesting, but a simple internet search brought up some not so nice things. Is this system played out? Any experience with his membership site? I think its like 47 bucks to start. Thanks!

    Roger Langille?

    He doesn't work.

    I can pick him apart in a couple of easy seconds.

    I'll even give you s sneak peak as to why signing up for him won't won't work at all.

    The guy advocates signing up for suppliers using 'their descriptions' and 'their products' and selling it for a higher price.

    Well, here's the problem with doing a 'push to eBay' system: You will be EXACTLY the same as every one else. You will not set yourself apart from anyone else and you will have no skills in undercutting any of your competition.

    He doesn't go into finding any market worth and finding any profitability off that market worth. He advocates selling items blindly from suppliers basically utilizing their prices.

    The problem is, you have to take a DATA-based approach.

    DON'T BE PUSHED AROUND WITH DROPSHIPPERS! As a retailer, YOU are in the driver's seat. You are in charge. YOU set the pricing - but you need to set the pricing based on ACTUAL market worth of the items LESS deductions - including negotiated costs to acquire.

    Roger Langille doesn't teach this.

    His is a 'push button' method that loses people lots of money in insertion fees because there is no research methodology before hand... Sad really, because that is the underlying success method I've taught hundreds of people how to exploit.

    In addition, you need to have a sales history BEFORE going into dropshipping anyway! I've taught how to bridge that gap for years - something Roger never touches upon.

    How on earth can you dropship without negotiation leverage?!

    Exactly, Roger, Exactly.

    I just smile.

    Has anyone else used him?

    I'm smack on the mouth with this analysis.

    I edited my comment since I didn't feel it added positively to this thread.

    My main concern is the rather sketchy advice regarding using Prime, which is completely against Amazon's TOS.

    This is a deal breaker since I am not willing to put my Amazon account in jeopardy

    It was also mentioned that there was a way to get Prime for free, I did not see this answered anywhere - unless this is referring to the various free trial's, which are well known about.

We are not talking about Fulfillment By Amazon here; he teaches selling only actual Amazon products to take advantage of free shipping.

    Well, what you are really doing is sending items as gifts ( which you could do without the "special link" ) and I don't think the Amazon source information is completely removed. I have read conflicting reports on this. Actually, I believe the real reason for this setup is that when you go to Amazon with these links you are dropping Roger's Amazon affiliate cookie! Great for him, not so great for you if your Ebay customers catch on to what's going on and your feedback tanks.
    And here's a further issue you're going to run into -

    The RETURN of an item!

    When an item is returned in this scenario, when it's a gift - and it's not to the 'eBay seller' it looks incredibly suspicious. And when eBay/Amazon get word of it you can kiss your accounts goodbye.

    So, in a nutshell:

    Bad data + bad margins + bad marketing + bad competition breakthrough + bad policies + eBay/Amazon terms of service policy violation + bad customer service encouragement = the worst possible way to make money on eBay ever.

    Hmmm. I heard Roger's webinar just today and I read this thread, and honestly I don't see that much here that negates what he is apparently teaching. I have not signed up but may try it under the refund guarantee.

    As I see it there is easy proof you can see for yourself that people are making money on ebay selling amazon stuff for more than it sells for on amazon, and thus making money. If this is true (I will check into this shortly myself) then it is do-able and scalable.

    If Roger teaches the nuances of this system then I don't see why it would not be a good course.

    My two questions which make me wonder, and which I have to get answered for certain before signing up for Roger's training, are:

    1) Is it a violation of Amazon TOS to drop-ship stuff free to people using amazon prime? (If it is, I don't necessarily have a problem with the system - you could still theoretically make money by buying low and selling high, even with the shipping cost added in.) What I have more of a problem with is IF Roger is lying about being able to do this without violating Amazon Prime TOS.

    2) Is it true you can have stuff sent in plain brown boxes, not amazon boxes? I know you can send it as a gift and not have the price show that way; but can you have amazon send it in a plain brown box? I have never heard of it, and at least one comment on the web I found states that amazon said this is not possible.

    So to me, these are 2 issues that I need to find out about before purchasing Roger's training, as I don't want to have to refund; I'd rather find out the answers for sure, first, and then join or not join based on those answers. I have written Roger to ask him about this; we'll see if I get a response and what it is.

    But as I said, the system makes sense to me if indeed people buy stuff on ebay that is higher priced than you can get it on amazon or other sources such as Sears. If that's true then I see no reason why one could not make money by scaling this system.

    Since I just heard about this today I really don't know much about it, but it certainly sounds like it may have potential as a business.

    In Amazon's TOS for Amazon Prime does explicitly say that is is against their policy to dropship items.

    Here is the direct quote:

    "Amazon Prime isn't available for customers who purchase products for the purpose of resale or use Amazon Prime to ship products to their customers or potential customers."

    First off, here are a few questions about this "Webinar" you were invited to:
    • When you received your email about your "Webinar", was the email titled "Reminder: Your Webinar is on XX/XX/2013..." making you feel like you already signed up, even though you hadn't?
    • In the webinar invite, did they mention "Roger Langille" by his full name, or did they leave out his last name and just mention "my friend Roger"?
    • During the webinar, did they conveniently leave our Roger's last name during the entire presentation?
    • After the webinar and when you got follow up emails, did they (again) not mention Roger's last name?
    This set off about a bazillion warning flags with me, as I had the "pleasure" of attending one of his webinar's many months ago. They are always the same: about 35 minutes, he does everything lighting fast, doesn't answer any questions, and glazes over the most important issues so you think that they are easily handled (like drop shipping). I actually had to do some digging to find the guys last name, as the affiliate marketer wouldn't tell me it on the call nor afterwards. Once I found it and did about 5 minutes of research, it was easy to see why all of these affiliates are leaving his name out of anything they send. They know that if they mention his full name, everyone will google him, see that he's as shady as they come, and their conversion rates would drop to nothing.

    While I don't want to name or completely dis the affiliates who are doing this (I can think of 4 Warriors right now), I have lost respect for them and have removed myself from their lists. Sending out a misleading webinar notification making you think you must have signed up, working with a guy like Roger Langille, and then intentionally going through great pains to leave his last name out of anything they put in writing pretty much tells you all you need to know: they know he is toxic, they have been offered a hefty commission for whomever they can get signed up, and they don't really care about the customers on their lists.

    If I'm wrong about Roger and the affiliates here trying to rope people in for him, then why have they avoided speaking up on these threads to explain why they work with him and convince us that he's legit? Or better yet, start a post prior to one of these webinars notifying the other warriors here so that we can all know about it and join in? Oh...yeah...there must be a very good reason why they don't do that....

    Just my two cents.
    I'm not here to defend Roger Langille, but I have to tell you my experience is the OPPOSITE of what you say here.

    Roger's first and last name were given at the top and later during the webinar his name was up on the screen in a graphic for a long time, yes, and even his email address with his name in it.

    I was actually sent an invitation to opt in to the webinar which I did.

    The webinar was over 2 hours and many questions were answered.

    The only questions I had that didn't get answered were about shipping in a plain brown box and about whether it violates Amazon TOS to use Prime.

    I asked those questions in an email to Roger after the webinar and he responded to me, gave me his phone number and said he'd be happy to explain by phone. I have not called yet.

    I admit this guy has a lot of bad press around the net, I also did my due diligence in researching him and frankly the bad press gives me reason to hesitate buying his training.

    But judging just on the webinar and how it was handled and his response with phone number after it, I have to say he seems pretty much on the up and up.

    Yes clearly amazon Prime says you can't drop ship using Prime.
    However, that said, tons of people are doing it and getting away with it!
    So one has to wonder if whether there is a trick to getting around it, OR if amazon really just doesn't care because they're making money.

Unlike any other product on the internet please feel free to cruise through ebay and you will see hundreds of sellers using this system, and plenty with a lengthy ebay history. (bld304, newyorq, fundwaysltd, renato123456), and hundreds more. Refunds in this day and age are absolute as sellers are subject to credit card processors being shut down for chargebacks. As so we offer a very quick no hassle return policy. As for Amazon documents, yes that is a valid document, however there is a legal way to get around that issue. Also there are several other sites I train on besides Amazon. I would estimate I have 20-30 bad posts, videos out there, after a decade of doing ebay. I dont feel that is too bad about.

    (1) For example, an individual on this thread copied my training, sold it, then created this thread. However they dont know what to do about the amazon rule, so when they came to me after facing countless chargebacks they grew upset

    (2)Introducing Hardeen-Asked me on the phone to train him 4 years ago for 20.00, I said no, and he cut a youtube video
    (3) Video on youtube, about ebay and visalus-I young gentleman, that I kicked off of a webinar for challenging me that the webinar was live, when I was showing ebay which was severely time stamped

    I hope this clarifies things, and you understand that not only to we happily provide refunds, but we have to provide refunds, and that you you can read the stories here "stories" or you can go watch the real thing being performed on ebay everyday.

    On a positive note I have had 178 SIX FIGURE EARNERS in the last year.

    Good luck with whatever path you travel down, and keep rocking your dreams...

    Roger
    Roger, thanks for coming on here and giving your side of the story.
    The bottom line is your assurance that there is a money back guarantee. Anyone can try it and if it isn't as you say they can get a refund.
    Sounds fair enough to me!

    All it will take is one of us to report their listing(s) after looking up their usernames and reporting them - and providing the URL to this thread.

    Sooooo.........


    I just looked at one of the negative feedback received for bld304... this is what it said:

    "Sellers "warehouse" is actually Amazon. Save $, buy from Amazon directly. Buyer: k*******r ( 422) Mar-15-13 09:57"

    Even the buyers figured it out - this was the issue seen in the other thread in the WF about using Amazon as a dropshipper.
    Why would anyone do that?
    You'd have to be a complete ahole to report someone for breaking ebay TOS.
    LIVE AND LET LIVE!

    You wrote "From some recent people that have contacted me and signed up for my course, nine have indicated that they have refunded the Roger Langille course - and it was NOT within the last 12 months.

    Soooo..........."

    So they got their money back, right? No harm, no foul.
    And if indeed 9 got their money back, and came to you, you should be grateful for Roger introducing them to the idea of making money on auctions.

    Again, I'm not for nor against Roger Langille, I'm just a guy investigating the idea of dropshipping as he teaches, and to me it looks do-able. With a money back guarantee, it seems reasonable to attempt to learn from someone who has made it work.
  • Profile picture of the author Auctiondebteliminator
    Yeah, you're right - and I'm not one to report them - I'm just a little suspicious of 'him' claiming that he's only had '2 refunds in the last 12 months' when 9 indicated that they've refunded.

    That was a red flag.

    I'm all for people doing their investigations and homework - I'm glad they do as all people should make honest, data-based, informed decisions.

    I just didn't think it was in 'Roger's' best judgement to 'out' what his sellers were selling and doing.

    Personally, I think there should be a mentor/student confidentiality and trust where you should never tell people who they are.

    That almost gets a larger 'a-hole' award than 'reporting them for what they do'.

    It also violates the 'live and let live' principle.

    In addition, a 'money back guarantee' is great and all, but that cannot get your banned eBay account back. Big harm, big foul.

    A few things - I've gone through the course, seen it in action, seen it work for others and seen feedback from a TON of users. When I held the webinar with Roger, he stayed on for 1.5 hours just answering questions and clarifying things to all the users. I've also seen him hold additional free webinars for his buyers when there are any pertinent changes.

    The individual 'auctiondebteliminator' is clearly a competitor and repeatedly tries to tell people to purchase his product instead. Further, there are a lot of things he's mentioned that I know are incorrect (because I can see in the member's area that they are addressed by Roger in the training).
    It's kinda bizarre that majority of the posts on this thread are from auctiondebteliminator when he seems to not have actually gone through Roger's training (and if he has, is purposefully misrepresenting certain parts).

    I had Roger pull me into skype conversations with his students to confirm the success of his students myself too. Here's one of them, Troy that was in skype group:

    "Just wanted to give a huge THANK YOU for over delivering on your promises. At first I was a little hesitant to say "yes" to you because of the unbelievable amount of programs on the internet today that just do not work. I was also thinking, "how am I supposed to tell my wife that I'm getting into yet... another program". I mustered up the courage, said "screw it", got started, and because of that my life has drastically changed. Today I'm a power seller on eBay with almost $100K of inventory listed. I have my phone set to make a "cha-ching" sound every time an item on eBay sells. I hear that sound a lot and for some reason... It just never gets old!"

    Clearly auctiondebteliminator has his own reasons for participating in this thread as much as he has been with blatant self promotion. It's one thing to promote your product/service, quite another to put down someone else to lure buyers to oneself. I'm of half a mind to report some of posts as they are certainly misleading and incorrect if not outright slanderous.

    One more note -- while I did hold a webinar with Roger, I'm not clarifying this for the sake of any commissions. You are free to purchase it/not purchase it and you will not find any affiliates links in my post. As someone who has published products as well, I just find it disgusting and pathetic when competitors misrepresent others to try and get ahead.

Oh...yeah...there must be a very good reason why they don't do that....

    Just my two cents.
    Since I held a webinar with Roger, let me clarify some things:
    1. I not only posted Roger's full name, but put his email out there, and he welcomes his buyers to call him in case of any issues.
    2. I have never sent anything misleading like claiming you are signed up for a webinar when you are not so you're clearly referring to someone else there.
    3. I have known Roger for quite a while now. I also did a lot of due diligence on the product, and Roger as a person as well. Like I mentioned above I've spoken with his students, gone through the training myself as well.
    4. My webinar with him was 2 hours long. Not sure why you said it was 35 minutes with him not answering questions.

    If you attended some other webinar, then please clarify whom it was for, because it was certainly not mine and sounds completely different from what Roger did on the webinar with me. As such, I'm inclined to believe that the 35 minute format that you're referring to was the mutual decision of the affiliate and roger, not one of a 'fixed format'.

    Just like you asked, I'm explaining why I was happy to do a webinar with Roger. In under 2 days I've received a lot of positive feedback about it including a success story of someone who has already made money using Roger's methods.
  • Profile picture of the author Rob Casavant
    I will say I bought Roger Langille's basic training a few months ago. So I will say a few things. Yes, the "link" to go to Amazon is an affiliate cookie. You can actually see who the affiliate is if you try hard enough. I believe it is one of his family members that he mentions in one of the videos. It is almost like putting affiliate links in a free eBook. The person is going to Amazon anyhow...why not go through an affiliate link that does not affect you one bit. Once I found out it was an affiliate link gateway, I still continued to use it cause that's how I roll. Now I use a friends Amazon affiliate gateway since he lost his job and his wife is terminally ill.

    But the fact is that the method actually does work. Works pretty well too. But with me, I am trying to focus on other things right now. I found one product that sells about once or twice a month, I would make around $11 profit each time and the listing would cost $0.50. So that's not bad I think. The 2 months I did it, I only did around 20 listings. Half were 30 day ads which cost $0.50 a piece. The other half were free 7 day ads. (You get 50 free 7 day ads each month from ebay). A few times the 30 day ads would sell and would have to relist the item.

    I made around $80 profit after around $5.00 for listing fees and several more dollars for ebay fees.

    So, I did in fact make money and it was super easy. This alone puts it ahead of many trashy WSOs I have seen around. As to doing this long term.... ehhh not sure if that's a great idea. as people have mentioned about losing their amazon and ebay accounts, but at least I got a return on my investment and more and could set it back in motion by even just relisting the few sellers I did have.

    Character or methods aside, I made money. Just now I am focused on other projects.

    I thank you sincerely for your comments - although I think you might be a little misguided.

    I haven't seen you around much on the Warrior Forum, which means you probably haven't seen me much around on the Warrior forum either.

    If you have, though, you might see that I am on here quite a bit, not much to self-promote, but to guide, and to give advice.

    In fact, I post a lot on non-related topics to my niche as well. However, I did (and do) post on eBay related topics, and start eBay related topics, because I do consider myself an authority on them.

    People ask my to review methods, people, WSOs, techniques, etc. So I do.

    In fact, people in the Warrior Forum come here - and a lot of people are Internet Marketers - and post on Internet Marketing related topics - should they NOT because it would be 'self promotion' to help people out because they have knowledge (or claim to have knowledge) of it?

    All I'm saying is that I am here mostly to offer my advice, help out those in need, and to promote using eBay the RIGHT way, for lasting, long-term success. Not with 'black hat' or 'grey-hat' methods.
  • Profile picture of the author Rob Casavant
    Yeah, that's actually true Heather/Roger. I noticed there was no longer an affiliate banner anywhere, I emailed your support to let you know it was gone but that's fine if you took it away.

    Bottom line is it works and is simple to follow along. I kind of liked how I didn't have to have tons of excel sheets, hours of research, or nothing like that... just get out there and do it. Made some easy cash and in my eyes that puts it way ahead of some of these horrible products out there now.

    And there in was one of my issues.

    He doesn't go into finding any market worth and finding any profitability off that market worth. He advocates selling items blindly from suppliers basically utilizing their prices without going into a deductions versus actual market worth of the items using basic economic principles that are VITAL to any business.

    It's dangerous to look at an item and say: "This is selling on eBay for higher than it's selling on Amazon - I must make a profit off of it, then". Because it's not as simple as that.

    A lot of people sell on eBay, only to realize that they took a loss on the item AFTER they sold it.

    In fact, on poster above us indicated:

    "I also bought Roger's basic training. Honestly, I did make some money, but not enough to make it worth it.
    Half of the time the amazon price would go up and I would end up losing."

    This constant vigilance on a 'moving cost to acquire' wouldn't be an attractive business model for me, at all.

    I prefer to know EXACTLY what my profit is BEFORE I acquire, list, sell, ship, or even approach an item. Data and numbers don't lie, and 'stick-a-finger-in-the-wind' approaches can be fatal to businesses.

    I prefer to know EXACTLY what my profit is BEFORE I acquire, list, sell, ship, or even approach an item. Data and numbers don't lie, and 'stick-a-finger-in-the-wind' approaches can be fatal to businesses.
    But if, as I said, the product being sold is being sold at a much higher price - say there is a $30-40+ gap - then wouldn't one be very likely to make money off it and not lose? And what if one seeks out products that a) often sell on ebay for a certain price and b) are available always at a cheaper price ?

    Seems to me this can work, and I suspect there is one of 2 (or more) reasons if it doesn't work:
    1) people are not doing the research to find those high-profit items that don't tend to fluctuate in price
    2) it is extremely (near impossible?) to find such items.

    Roger did show some examples on his webinar of such items. I would not be surprised if those were hand picked ahead of time, but it did prove that such items do exist. I guess the thing to do would be to search diligently for such items and if you can't find them, then don't do this business.

    I have used Rogers method and i have made money. There are quite a few people selling Amazon items on Ebay and finding products to sell is fairly easy. The biggest problem I see with the method is the sales tax.

    Shipping to a state that charges sales tax can turn your $10 profit into a loss. As more cash strapped states look for new sources of revenue, I can definitely see more of them trying to collect tax on Amazon purchases.
