However, on the left side of your ShopToEarn home page we have created a product category titled “Gift Cards.” This category represents all of the retailers that pay a percentage back on Gift Cards. In addition, these stores can also be seen in the retailer drop down menu, noted by a “GC” after the retailer’s name. (Ex. GC).

Gift cards are also obtainable by clicking on the “ Gift Cards” item in the dropdown menu. There are 111 Companies that offer gift cards at 6 percent cash back. Vendors range from Starbucks to CVS to Macy’s to Pottery Barn. Check your Web site for the complete list., is another option in the pull down menu that also pays back 3 percent on online Gift Certificates.

Shop To Earn Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions

So you’ve heard about Shop to Earn or you’ve just joined the company, but you still have questions. Don’t worry; you’re not the only one wondering about e-commerce and it’s benefits! Often, it takes potential associates two tour calls and a training call to get acquainted with the Shop To Earn e-commerce and online shopping business model.

To help you learn more about ShopToEarn and ShopToEarth, here are five frequently asked questions:

1. What are the main differences between “Business Builders,” “Website Owners,” and “Brokers”?
  • Business Builders are primarily responsible for referring other’s to Shop To Earn through their Web portal. They receive training bonuses for signing up associates through their website.
  • Website Owners maintain their own Shop To Earn web portal and may refer others to shop on their website. Owners receive cash back on all online shopping done through their website.
  • Brokers are both Website Owners and Business Builders, getting the best of both worlds with cash back on all shopping and training bonuses when they refer new associates.

2. I want to sign up for ShopToEarn, but I don’t know anyone else who is involved. What should I do?

Ask around! Someone you know is likely already signed up with us, they just might not be talking about it as much as they should. Otherwise, contact us by posting a comment on the blog and we will forward your information to the appropriate people.

3. What does my sign-up fee go towards?

When you pay your sign up fee, you are essentially paying for the “behind the scenes” cost of running your own online shopping business. Your fee goes towards technical support for your personal Web site, maintaining the accounting in your “back office” that tracks all of your income and purchases made through your site, and the costs associated with providing you support such as training calls.

4. How does ShopToEarn track my purchases? How can I be sure you know what is purchased through my Web site?

We track your purchases with proprietary software through your back office. You can view all purchases made through your site in your back office, and if you ever happen to find something missing, submit a support ticket immediately and we will correct the problem right away.

5. I can’t get anyone else to join! What am I doing wrong?

Nothing! Some people are not receptive to this idea because it is new and different from what they’ve seen before. Our suggestion to you is to participate in the training calls and ShopToEarth seminars to get tips on how to recruit.

Feel free to leave questions or comments on the blog and we will add them to our question and answer series.

This weekend is designed to help master the most critical aspect of success – learning to communicate effectively by understanding your own personality and the personalities of others. This program identifies your strengths, talents and abilities, as well as your weaknesses and inabilities. Once you thoroughly understand your personality type, you can begin to maximize your strengths and minimize your weaknesses. More importantly, you can create alliances with people whose personality types compliment your own.

Better relationships with your spouse, children, friends, family members, business partners and all others that cross your path will be enhanced by your new-found knowledge and communication skills that you will develop at Communication Pro Workshop. This training, more than any other, is what Joe Locke, ShopToEarn VP of Sales, attributes most of his success in business and in life. Seating is limited, so pre-register today to assure your spot.
