CB Passive Income 5.0 Review – Is It A Scam – The Truth Is Here

Welcome to my CB Passive Income Review, a product by Patrick Chan. I will be reviewing this program to finally bring some closer to the question ” Is CB Passive Income A Scam?” For those of you short on time my answer is No but there are a few things you need to know before Joining this system. My goal is for you to be able to make an informed decision whether this is the right product for you. This Review is for version 5.0 which was upgraded and released for 2019.

Whenever I hear of one of these turnkey done for you systems it makes me cringe because almost all of them are nothing more than a bunch of Hype. So, is Patric’s system different or just another outdated product that will take your money and under deliver on all the hyped up promises?

Summary: CB Passive Income 5.0 is Affiliate marketing and email marketing system that allows you to make money with Patric’s’s cloned done for you system. Patric also claims that this is turnkey business but it is filled with restrictions and red tape. The system is full of hype and DOES NOT deliver what it promises.

What Is CB Passive Income?

CB Passive income is an email marketing product created by Patric Chan, the system is set up to show you how to sell Clickbank products using email marketing. Patric even says that he does all the work for you, which is true to a certain point. The work that Patric does for you is basically work that any experienced affiliate marketer can do without having to pay such a high price. What this system doesn’t do for you is show you how to get all of this duplicated content ranked to actually get targeted traffic. Take a look at the image below and see what Patric will do for you.

I think all of this is great but if it were that easy I’m pretty sure everybody would be doing this. I.ve been around the internet marketing world since 2011 and I can tell you from experiences that even though all this stuff looks enticing it’s still BS. Driving traffic is just simply not as easy as Patric makes it sound. I get a laugh when I see this stuff because I know how unrealistic it really is. Take a look at this shot where Patric actually tells you that you are getting a Cloned Squeeze Page.

The only thing unique about this system is your affiliate link. Everything else is just duplicated stuff. And one more thing I can tell you, Search Engines Do Not Rank Content that is not unique, and if they do it will be found way out of reach from the average viewer who usually doesn’t go beyond page 4 or 5 in the search engines.

How Will You Make Money With CB Passive income 5.0?

Patric is going to help you build an Email marketing business and monetize your email marketing list by selling Clickbank Products. Click bank is massive so there will be no shortage of products to sell, but keep in mind; Patric’s system is only made to work with clickbank.

Patric’s system is fully automated which is the reason he say’s that he’s doing all the work for you. So here is what Email marketing is and how Affiliate marketing ties into Email marketing. I will explain the process in the 4 listed steps below.

Step 1. Drive traffic to the Cloned page CBPI 5.0 will be giving you.

Step 2. Capture Email Address (Offer something for free to get email address)

Step 3. Follow up and gain your subscribers Trust.

Step 4. Send relevant emails to subscribers with your affiliate links

Patric Did Everything But The Hard Part

Let’s revisit step 1 of this system concerning getting traffic to your page, yes it’s true that all the fairly easy work is done for you but how are you going to get this traffic?

I can tell you from experience that one of the hardest things for an affiliate marketer to do is drive traffic to their website or page. Without proper training this process can be overwhelming and frustrating, not to mention expensive should you choose to pay for traffic. This is why I mentioned that this system IS NOT Beginner Friendly, if you want to learn how to drive traffic to your offer properly I suggest taking a look at my #1 Recommendation For Free!

CBPI 5.0 does offer some training on how to do this but I promise it will only leave you more confused. The training is not very in depth at all and it’s a bit dated. I am a little disappointed they didn’t spend more time on the driving traffic part of this training.

Patric is a very successful marketer ans author, so I must say; I expected a lot more from him with teaching you how to drive traffic to your offer.

Maybe he doesn’t Know how, or just didn’t see the need to spend more time on this VERY IMPORTANT part of making this business a Success!

Training, Tools, And Support


The training like I just mentioned is very basic and dated.

You will receive some low end training on driving traffic but most of this stuff you can learn online for free. The basic training briefly covers the following.

.SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

. Solo Ads

. Paid Ads

. Social Media Marketing

. YouTube

. Guest Posting

There is also a little training on email marketing but it’s very basic stuff, just like the driving traffic training. I think you could actually learn much better by just doing a few searches online and finding this yourself.


The digital cover creator which is what you will use to create your free offer is really about the only useful tool you get. This will allow you to make your offer stand out and look more attractive.

Other than that the system itself which is already set up and done fore you is the only other tool this platform has. I don’t really think this is a bad thing because you are basically purchasing a done for you cloned system.


Support is also very basic so this is going to be short, email support is the only support I have found. I was hoping that an actual company like CB PassiveIncome is would have a little more to offer in the line of support but like I said It’s Email Only.

. No Chat

. No Community

. No Phone

Pros and Cons

Angel and Devil


1. Patric is a real person and he has some pretty high endorsements as well as some serious knowledge and online success. Patric is the author of Wake Up Millionaire and Co Author of Clicking Cash with one of New York Times best-selling Authors Robert G Allen. Patric also receives the highest endorsements from Clickbank and some of the all time best Marketers in the business, so this guy is definitely No Joke!

2. 30 Day money back guarantee. Thirty days is a pretty good sign that the founder really believes in the product and is willing to stand behind it. For some reason the 5.0 new launch only offers a 30-day while the older system 4.0 use to offer you 60 days. Some companies that sell on clickbank refuse to give you your money back even though Clickbank requires it to sell one their platform. I would be sure to read the fine print because that’s how some of these other guys get away with not refunding your money and still stay in Click bank’s good graces. I really don’t believe this to be the case with CB Passive Income. Especially since they’ve been around since 2013. I would say that’s pretty darn good!


1. Very Limited: You are limited to only selling Clickbank products because that is what the CBPI platform is. I prefer to build a business that I have control over and that I can build in any niche I choose.

2. Too Much Hype: CBPI has a lot of hype but fails miserably to deliver what they promise. Patric keeps saying that he has done all the work for you but when you get into the nuts and bolts of this system you find out that getting traffic is on you and without any real training that really works this system is an Epic Fail in my eyes. Without being able to get traffic, this system is pretty much Useless.

3. Cloned Content: Your content is nothing more than a duplicated auto generated cloned page. As I mentioned before, this content does not rank because it is not unique and search engines hate that. You are not allowed to make it your own so how can you build a trusting relationship with your potential leads.

I can show you how to create real ready to rank content in the niche of your choice for Free Join This Community Here.

4. Hidden Cost: Although you don’t have to pay for some of the basic essentials Like a Domain, Hosting, or an Auto responder there is still hidden cost involved.
Without any real training on driving free traffic to your page, you are going to have to focus on paid traffic which can get expensive. You also still have no guarantee that this paid traffic will covert either.

Another hidden cost is, if you want to own your email list then you are going to have to invest in am autoresponder of your own which can run you upwards of $30 plus dollars a month.

5. You’re giving your list to Patric. Let’s say you do well with this program but you do not own your list like I mention in con #4, if you don’t purchase an autoresponder of your own then Guess who owns your list? Patric Owns It, all your hard work goes straight up to Patric. You are basically building a list for him to use as he see’s fit.

Is CB Passive Income A Scam?

My answer is No, this is not a scam. I have my reservations for not recommending this system to a beginner but someone with some advanced internet marketing skills can definitely make some really decent money with this system. Also, the system isn’t a lot of money to join and the have a 30-day money back guarantee. So If you like what you’ve read about CBPI and have some experience in marketing you can rest assure that this is not a scam.

  • Team leader and owner at True Prosperity Online Scam Prevention Team. I have been involved in affiliate marketing for since 2014 and I love what I do. Especially Exposing Online Scams. I started my journey in 2011 and have fallen for my fair share of scams but that all changed in 2014 and now I Expose Scams to help others stay safe online....


  • I guess the only thing I really liked about the program was the author. It’s probably worth picking up his books, I might learn a thing or two. Apart from the author, all else seems more or less a pluff.

    Furthermore, I didn’t really enjoy those claims. I mean they sound nice. But it’s pretty damn obvious that they are unrealistic as you said, Jason.

    All that aside I do respect the fact that he offers 30-day money back guarantee. Thus, it only makes sense that the program is not a complete rip-off. It seemingly offers some value. But nowhere near to the extent that they claim.

    On top of all that, I do consider myself a beginner still, so the program wouldn’t work for me even if I were more enthusiastic about it.

    The pros and cons were really resourceful. Thank you!

    Have a Wonderful Day!


    • Unfortunately the cons outweigh the pros in this case, which is the reason why I can not recommend CB Passive Income. I really feel that all beginners should Get Started at Wealthy  Affiliate.  The training is absolutely superior to anything I’ve seen online to date.

      Thank You Rasa


  • I mean good luck trying to rank duplicate content. Of course, no one tells the customers the fact that search engines do not particularly enjoy that (to put it lightly).

    These automated systems will never work. However, as long people want the easy way out and seek a solution for exactly that, namely, there is a market for push-button easy make cash systems even if they never work, we’ll have a pretty polluted ecosystem. 

    Okay, the program is technically not a scam but I completely agree on how unrealistic those claims sound. “You’ll never need to produce any content” – that makes no sense at all whatsoever. Neither does many of the others. And by my books whenever they do try to deceive people (as it is with these claims), I’d call it a scam. Even if the author seems to be otherwise a respectable person. That’s just me.

    Either way, I sincerely appreciate all the insights. They helped a lot, Jason.

    Cheers, Carpe minutam!


    • Hello Matiss,  Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I personally don’t find the product to be a scam because they do pay and also offer a 30 day money back guarantee.  I will say however that the system is loaded with hype and unrealistic claims. CBPI under delivers on all of the hype. As long as people think there’s a way to make easy money online then programs like this Will continue polluting the internet. 

      Cheers, Cape Cod


  • Thank you for giving a thorough and informative article about CB Passive Income. I have learned something new about Patric Chan’s Clone Marketing System. I have never really looked at his online programs in detail so was quite surprised when I looked at your list, to see actually how outdated his system really is. 

    You are also right in saying, that Patric’s CB Passive Income is quite limited to Click Bank. This will be a problem for me to join because of the many issues that I have had with Click Bank alone, in registration processes. 

    And again, I have to agree with you in regards to duplication of material/content – is no the best way to promote a turnkey business online. Uniqueness is what Search Engines look for.

    Your article has helped me, not to spend any more time looking at joining Patric Chan’s programs. It will also help those new to the business of online marketing.

    • I hope the review gets to the right people in a timely manner. Many people see a flashy sales page and say wow that’s my sales page. What they don’t realize is, there are thousands more just like it and search engine will not even give it a second look. I’ve reviewed to many of these kind of websites in my time. One thing that never changes is that these guys are relentless and persuasive, so you really need to do your homework before joining. 

      Best Wishes, 


  • Hi I really enjoyed your article. The first thing that always comes to my mind when reading about automated system that you don’t have to do anything is then why are you offering it if you are making so much money. I think with that in mind you know there is a catch some where. Naturally he is making his money by selling you the system. Then making more when you decide i spent this $47 and have to invest in up sell. Money pit. I think your offer sounds like it is the risk free way of checking out if on line sales and marketing is for you free of charge. Thank you for the information ! 

    • Thanks for the input Bill I agree that the Up-Sells are the area where Patric makes his small fortune.

  • Thanks for taking the time to provide this unbiased review of CB Passive income. I have heard so much about it, and im glad I can make an informed decision from your review. it is good that the owner is a real person, and the program is legit with 30 days money-back guarantee. The program has great features. However, this is not ideal for people who are new to internet marketing, 

    • This is true Tolu, yes the system is okay but I really don’t feel it delivers everything they lead you to believe. You should have a lot of extra money for paid advertising if you want to make CB Passive Income work for you. I have used much better systems for less money that actually work if you follow the detailed training. 



  • Just now hearing about CB passive income.

    Thanks for your detailed and honest review.

    Some interesting benefits but regarding the fact that I am a beginner affiliate and I am still trying to get the hang of getting traffic to my site, I don’t think this is for me.

    I will just stick and focus to wealthy affiliate, for now, the training is limitless, the best decision made in my online business career.

    • Understandable Etah, I do recommend CBPI for advanced marketers only, I’m happy to see that you’ve found value with the training at Wealthy Affiliate. Please let me know if you need any help Getting Started. I am always around the community and available to help.



  • Hello Jason, nowadays, I am always skeptical of the kind of products being marketed now, especially products that promises making people rich overnight. It is this kind of reviews that helps one know whether the product is genuine or a complete waste of money and time.

    Thanks for laying it bare, that this product is not for newbies as it is not beginner friendly. I hope that those starting out that has the intention of purchasing CB Passive Income 5.0 will come across this review to help them make informed decision.

    • Thanks for taking time to comment on this review Gracen, I mention My #1 recommendation for beginners in this review and I stand by my recommendation 100%. This is the system that has worked for me and the training is some of the best I’ve seen online to date.
