        It seems they're (the stock holders, including EBR) claiming they didn't get paid according to their agreement and both sides are airing their dirty laundry in public. I don't believe it has anything to do with Mr. Rose's political ambitions, at least not directly.

    Does this mean E. Brian Rose is gonna start selling WSOs again?

    PS...If anyone has an affiliate platform of their own, now is probably a good time to kick it up a notch or two due to the possible uncertainty at JVZ. (hint hint)

        Do you really think people will choose Warrior Payments over JVZ or the many other platforms available, even with this little hiccup?

        That's delusional.

          I've been half expecting Warrior Payments to become mandatory for all WSOs, in a last ditch effort by FL to increase revenue.

            Actually, I wouldn't have an issue with FL doing this, IF, and ONLY if, they made it more user-friendly and added some of the features that the big boys have.

            I think it only makes sense for them as a for-profit business to insist that anyone listing in their marketplace use their affiliate platform.

            Honestly, I can't figure out why they just threw Warrior Payments together and then left it. It could be an exciting platform if properly integrated with the WSO marketplace.

            Would it scare vendors away? Honestly, I don't think so. If a vendor is serious about putting out a quality WSO and taking advantage of the traffic that the marketplace brings, I don't see why using Warrior Payments would be a deal breaker. It wouldn't stop me from doing it.

    Wow. This is the first I'm hearing of this. I probably have that email somewhere in my inbox as well.

    What really caught my eye was that they say they have over 5,000,000 users. I remember way back when they first opened. In fact, I wanted to see what number user I was. Turns out I was the 269th person to sign up for JVZoo!

    I just thought that was pretty amazing since they have over 5,000,000 users now. However, that seems like an awful lot. And they say more than half of those came in 2017 alone. That's pretty outstanding growth if that is indeed the case.

    I haven't heard anything about this current war between EBR and the JVZoo board, however. I think it's a shame to see EBR get pushed out, since it is his baby after all.

    @pauloadaoag - Is there any way you could share the link to the full story?

    I remember when e brian rose FOUNDED JV Zoo with Zimmerman....didn't know he was 'out'. I'm sure there's a big story there. An explanation from Zimmerman might have made sense - but really put off by this ploy.

    I watched a couple minutes of the video

    https://blog.jvzoo.com/the-power-of-truth/

    and it was a total turnoff for me. The "I drained the swamp" and "I did this and that and I can prove it"....too much drama.

    Don't know the back story and not a big fan of E. Brian Rose - but don't care for companies or CEO's who choose to air dirty laundry in public. Tacky.



    Edit: Just noticed "chad casselman" is listed as a 'co-founder' - would like to know how Rose ended up on the outside.

      I agree Kay. I didn't care for that video, either.

      I don't know the woman. For all I know she could be the nicest person on the planet, but the whole "I did this" and "I did that" makes her come off as extremely arrogant.

      As a whole, the entire affair is bad publicity for JVZoo. I think the best thing for the top brass at JVZoo to do would be to remain silent. Engaging in an online "tit for tat" only confuses people and leaves them not knowing what to really think.

      To close this post off in typical "nicheblogger75" fashion, I'll leave you with a quote:

      There are two sides to every story, and somewhere in the middle lies the truth.

    If FL spent half the time on further development of "Warrior Payments" as they do on trying to 'fix' the 'modern' view....it would be awesome by now.

      A number of people in the Facebook discussion have voiced their concerns about JVZ due to the lawsuit. Also, because of EBR's political views he's alienated quite a few folks. I've had a couple of friends that wouldn't promote my products because they're on JVZ citing EBR's opinions as the reason.


      It would take a real commitment from the WF in both tech features and marketing, but IMO there is an opportunity.

          There's really not a single source. There's comments made in the JVZoo group, EBR's group and mostly by friends on my FB timeline. Sorry I wasn't clearer with my earlier comment.
