The underlying forces behind this online business opportunity are;
1- Buying Power: The Power of a group of people to leverage significant discounts due to the larger buying power as a group.
2- Online Shopping Volume: Increased availability of nearly all standard consumables has resulted in the ability of large volumes of online shopping to occur.
3- Rebate Distribution: The paying of rebates to members of the group depending on what level of a tiered system of membership they are on.
4- Free membership: A small percentage of the discounts given are often held as management fees. No money upfront. Pay as you use type of philosophy.
In practice, this home business opportunity works very simply.
1- You shop for things that you were going to buy anyway, and then you are sent rebate checks for a % of your own purchases.
2- If you have introduced 10 people to the store who also do some shopping, a % of these rebates is also sent to you.
3- If your friends then introduce people to the store, you still receive a % of rebates from their purchases.
4- Most tiers do not go beyond 9 deep because any deeper than that makes the initial rebate distribution amount too small to attract people to the system in the first place.
It can be seen that this home business opportunity, online shopping, relies upon the numbers game. The benefits of receiving personal shopping rebates is a great bonus, but the compound growth of the shoppers giving you some of their rebates can amount to large sums of money, especially when the levels of people under you reach 4 or 5 deep. Below are some calculations that show how quickly a minimal introduction of say 5 people to a downline grows. Note: These people can be introduced at any time while someone is a member of an online shopping mall, but it is not a requirement to do so to receive discounts.
Tier 1 – You; 1 x 1 = 1 shopper
Tier 2 – You Introduce 5; 1 x 5 = 5 shoppers
Tier 3 – They Introduce 5 ea; 5 x 5 = 25 shoppers
Tier 4 – They Introduce 5 ea; 25 x 5 = 125 shoppers
Tier 5 – They Introduce 5 ea; 125 x 5 = 625 shoppers
Tier 6 – They Introduce 5 ea; 625 x 5 = 3125 shoppers
Tier 7 – They Introduce 5 ea; 3125 x 5 = 15,625 shoppers
Tier 8 – They Introduce 5 ea; 15625 x 5 = 78,125 shoppers
Tier 9 – They Introduce 5 ea; 78125 x 5 = 390,625 shoppers
Online shopping malls structure their rebate payouts slightly differently, and each tier generally attracts a different rebate payout. Income: With a $150 spend per month as a general figure by most shoppers, someone on say Tier 6 could earn around $900 mth which appears very achievable.
Someone who really treats this home based business opportunity as a full time business could earn well in excess of $110,000 mth on Tier 9.
My Power Mall is one particular online shopping mall that outlines very clearly what is achievable by members on their FAQ pages. They have now over 1000 shops available ( Some are very high profile retailers) to their members which alone indicates the support that the retail sector is giving the online shopping home business concept.

On they other hand there will certainly be some marketers who will promote the online shopping opportunity heavily and benefit very favourably from the effort they inject.
