The perception of e-commerce businesses has always been mixed. Some people swore they made lots of money from it while others claim it is the reason why they lost lots of money. This indicates that e-commerce can be super successful or fail miserably.
This is where SKUP comes in. It is a program that is claimed to guarantee the success of your e-commerce business.
However, before you keep reading about SKUP, I need to say that I don’t recommend starting your business using this model, ESPECIALLY if you are just starting your first business. Why? Because clients come and go, and you will have to be on a continual hustle to find more clients. This video teaches a business model using google maps where you setup your OWN websites and rent them out to clients instead. If a client decides to leave, you can simply find another client and point the leads to them instead. I highly recommend this business model instead of the SKUP model.
Here’s a video of my daughter’s business using this :
The course my daughter used above is much better than starting an ecommerce business with SKUP. But since you are here to learn about SKUP, lets get back to our review of that:
So, what does this program entail? Does the program really ensure the success of your e-commerce business? The subsequent paragraphs will answer all these questions and help you decide if you should ever consider investing in this program.
Who are the Creators of SKUP?
The brains behind skup.net are Matt Schmitt and Devin Zander. Matt has extensive experience in the Print-on-Demand (POD) business. He successfully built and scaled his POD business and made over $50 million in sales. He achieved all this within 10 years of starting the business.
He acquired part of Smar7 Apps in 2016 and became the Chief Content Officer of the company. The company got rebranded into SKUP in 2021. After the rebranding, he became the Chief Executive Officer.
Devin is the founder of the rebranded SKUP and assumes the role of the Chief Marketing Officer currently. He revealed that he founded the company when he couldn’t find everything he needed in the Shopify store app for his Shopify store.
He decided to create something that meets all the demands of his business and that was why he created what is now known as SKUP. At that time, it was an upsell app that provided some features that were not available on Shopify.
What is SKUP?
The creators described SKUP as the ladder to e-commerce success. A roadmap that can help people to start, grow, and scale their businesses to 6 figures. Their program combines the best of both Shopify and Amazon FBA to create a system that will make it easier to create a successful.
SKUP offers training and coaching to e-commerce store owners who want to scale quickly. They also sell software and Shopify themes to advance the same course.
How Does SKUP Work?
Skup offers a 4-level coaching course listed below.

You will receive 4 training sessions that will provide you with the required knowledge to build a solid foundation for your POD business. At this level, you will learn how to find your ideal audience and understand Facebook ads. You will also learn more about the importance of selling passion products and many more industry basics. This course costs $17.
Level 2 – Jewelry Profits
This course is their best seller and according to the creators, it teaches you how to build and automate your business in the fastest possible way. This level provides access to tools to achieve this. You will learn how to build a Shopify store in 15 minutes without any coding skills. You will also gain the knowledge to optimize the store to attract the right audience. The course gives access to the CiC method to create high-converting Facebook ads. You will learn how to convert the audience into raving fans. The Jewelry Profits cost a one-time fee of $1750.
Level 3 – Incubator
This level focuses mainly on private coaching. The creators will create a 90-day plan geared toward helping you achieve your business goals. You will receive weekly coaching from Matt and some e-commerce experts.
You will also get access to all SKUP courses, themes, and apps. You will also get the opportunity to join a private Slack community where you can interact with Matt and other 6 to 7 business owners. The cost of the Incubator has not been listed on the website and you can only get the pricing when you hop on a 10 minute call with the team.
Level 4 – Final Level
This is a Top Tier Mastermind program that offers one-on-one coaching with Matt for an entire year. The goal is to help you build a successful business that brings in an 8-figure income. The creators will also help you to automate your business so that you don’t spend all your time working on the business. This program is yet to be launched.
There was no refund policy mentioned on the company’s website.
Should You Invest in SKUP?
Although SKUP seems to work for lots of people, it is a bit weird that there are no negative reviews about the program. But since most of these reviews are on a trusted website like Trustpilot, they are can be trusted.
SKUP seems to provide all the support you need to grow your business but it is expensive. Since the level 2 product is more than $1000, level three might be more. But if you can dedicate time and energy aside from the financial investment, you might have the same story as all the positive testimonial.
The bottom line is that, if e-commerce is something you are passionate about and can dedicate time and energy to it, go for it!
