FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We'd suggest starting with the Introduction to Platinum University video in your library. This short video will help you understand exactly what we have on offer. From there, I would then start thinking about what experience you have in forex, stocks and dropshipping. If you’re a total novice, I would advise on starting with eBay dropshipping. This is something that you can build quite easily (with the help of our guides). Once your eBay store is up and running, you can then look at starting on your forex/stocks education whilst your fully automated eBay store runs in the background.
Whilst you’re learning how to trade the forex market, you can invest into stocks (as this is a long term investment) for as little as £50 and also let your portfolio grow from Tom’s weekly stock picks, whilst you continue to learn forex.
You also have the option to trade our free forex signals but if you are new to forex, please ensure that you speak to one of the team before doing so. Placing trades from signals is easy but we need to make sure you fully understand how to manage risk on your balance and not bet your money away, this is something that’s very important to us and we will support you fully with.
Everything that you need within each programme is provided, as well as the full support from our community. For most members, all of the content will be brand new but all that you need is dedication, a positive attitude and an open mindset to succeed
Like all things in life, the more time you put into things, the better the outcome. Most of our members work full time jobs but still manage to succeed. Everybody is different and have different lifestyles, some people can only put in a few hours on the weekend due to work and family commitments, whereas others have the luxury of being able to put in time every day. Putting in regular and consistent time to your studying and practice is what’s most important to your journey. We recommend using a whiteboard or a goal planner to ensure that you plan out your studying and keep yourself on track
Every member of ours has a different financial situation. We encourage members to only invest what they can afford to. After all, it’s your hard earned money so you should feel comfortable with what you’re investing.
Dropshipping does comes with 3rd party subscription fees but following all of the guidance within our content will ensure that you’re given the best possible start to end each month in profit. At present, the majority of new members end their first month of dropshipping with £1000+ net profit.
We encourage people to start off with what interests them the most first, however for many, they really don’t know where to start.
We recommend that all new members start off with our mindset videos. These will provide you with tools you can adopt to your learning to make the most of your time and empower you to exceed your goals
Dropshipping is a great place to begin your journey. It takes a short amount of time to setup your store and once it’s up and running smoothly (approx. 4-6 weeks), you can leave it run in the background, passively making you an income whilst you move onto the next income stream.
It’s a good idea to start your stocks journey next. The videos are great and you can quickly setup your stocks portfolio with the expert stock picks from our Head of Investing, Tom.
We suggest starting forex after stocks and it builds on from what you’ve previously learnt. Forex does take time and dedication, which is why it’s recommended to set up your dropshipping store and stocks portfolio first
This depends on how much time you have and what your financial circumstances are. However, most members start with dropshipping as that’s the easiest to set up and has the lowest startup costs. Once your store is up and running in a fully automated fashion, then you can look at using your dropshipping profits to then invest into something more long term like stocks.
Discord is now in replacement of Telegram and WhatsApp. All of our communication will be sent across these channels, so it is definitely beneficial to be a part of this platform. All forex signals, stock pick updates, dropshipping news etc will be posted in here.

The short answer to this is, no. Our mission is to provide members with as much educational content as possible, as long as the tools and support to create additional income streams. The content is yours and as long as you’re a member, you’ll have it for life. It’s up to you to decide what you would like to learn and what income streams you wish to establish.
Realistically, this is very hard to answer. Time is a huge factor in this. Some members have the luxury of lots of time on their hands to work their way through the courses and set up their income streams, whereas others do not have much time at all. Each member comes from a different financial background and thus invest differently.
Being a member of Platinum University isn’t about getting rich quick, it’s about learning new skills, setting up alternative incomes and most importantly, about changing mindset. It’s also about learning about and benefiting from compound interest, where you’re able to calculate your own future financial gains and how much you should put aside each month. https://www.thecalculatorsite.com/finance/calculators/compoundinterestcalculator.php
If you’re investing into the stock market, this will be for the long term and the fruits of which will come after 10, 15 or even 20 years. With dropshipping, depending on the strength of your eBay account, it could take three months to become profitable, however the more time and energy you put into your store and product research, the more you will make.
As a new member, the primary focus should be on learning and goal setting- the growth of income streams will then follow.
The affiliate scheme is there to compensate members who refer their friends and family to Platinum University.

A laptop is not required, everything can be done from your phone but the use of a laptop or even a tablet device does make things easier.
