I compiled these pros and cons of TripleClicks from my TripleClicks review to help you quickly make your own decision whether or not it is good for you to use TripleClicks as an option to make money online.
A. 32 REASONS TO JOIN TRIPLECLICKS
Reason # 1: You can sign up FREE to Tripleclicks; you can also sign up free to SFI and be automatically signed up to Tripleclicks.
Longevity in business
Reason # 2: TripleClicks is an online store launched on January 5th, 2009.
Number of products
Reason # 3: Starting with just 6,000 products, TripleClicks today has well over 106,000 items (both used and new).
Number of associates
Reason # 4: TripleClicks has over 1.7 million members.
Reason # 5: You are not obliged to invest money to make money with TripleClicks.
Getting VersaPoints (VP) for commissions
Reason # 6: Purchase items or make sales at TripleClicks: You can earn Sales VP which assure you commission by purchasing items at TripleClicks or from making sales there. And this can be done by placing a “standing order” at TripleClicks at the cost of $30-$40.
Reason # 7: Buy TC Credits: You can, for instance, set up a standing order (which is an order that you make to run automatically every month for an item that you set up) for TCredits. TCredit is TripleClick’s own currency which you can use to buy products at TripleClicks or to list your own items for sale there. Listing your product on TC costs 1 TCredit which you can purchase for about 29 cents a piece.
Reason # 8: Set up a standing order: You can make a standing order for $29/month for a pack of TCredits to win tools and marketing materials for pennies on a dollar.
Reason # 9: Purchase your household needs at TripleClicks: You can purchase your everyday household items at TripleClicks (most often from a local ECA) and get rewarded with VP too.
Price bender penny auctions
Reason # 10: Bid with TCredits: TripleClicks also has live penny auctions called Pricebenders. You bid with TCredits. TCredits can be bought from about $1.99 for a single TCredit to 29 cents per TCredit for a pack of 200. Just like regular penny auctions, each bid raises the price of an item by 1 cent and extends the clock. And the final bidder wins.
Reason # 11: Resell gains on ebay: You can win brand name merchandise cheap and resell them for a profit on eBay
Reason # 12: Win business building tools: All your business building tools like TCredits, gift cards, S-Builder Co-Op and affiliates for your downline can be won for pennies on a dollar through TripleClick’s penny auctions.
Reason # 13: Win MRV for purchases at TripleClicks: You receive 5 MRV points with each bid which you can then use to purchase from TripleClicks.
Ways to make money with TripleClicks
Reason # 14: Promoting and selling products: While there are a few ways to earn with TripleClicks, the basic is for you to promote and sell products listed there. You also get 45% of the CV (commission value) when your personally-sponsored SFI affiliate or personally-referred TC members place an order at TripleClicks. For the latter, you also earn all the VP on the order. This can bring you additional shares of the TripleClicks Executive Pool.
Reason # 15: Share in TripleClicks Executive Pool: This is made up of 40% of the CV of every purchase which every SFI affiliates can share in. For each VP you accumulate during the month, you will receive one share of the month’s pool.
E-Commerce Associates (ECA)
Reason # 16: Refer ECAs: You can refer people and companies to TripleClicks’ E-Commerce Associate (ECA) Program and earn VP and royalties any time someone buys a product from them.
Reason # 17: Get discounts from ECAs: You can also buy from your own referred ECAs and receive discounts on your purchases.
Reason # 18: Become ECA: You can leverage your skills and talents to start making money online by becoming an E-Commerce Associate.
Earn on Commission Volume (CV)
Reason # 19: With the combination of Direct Commissions and ECA Royalties, you can earn a handsome 55% of the CV on any sales generated!
Reason # 20: The site is easy to navigate
Reason # 21: Traffic: Once in a while you can obtain a super hot deal for traffic of 1000 visitors for $3
Reason # 22: Receiving commission payments: You can get paid your affiliate commissions via PayPal, direct deposit, a mailed check, or through SFI’s Payoneer debit card which you can obtain for $25. Payment is prompt.
Who is Tripleclicks For?
Reason # 23: Money-makers: People who want to make some money online.
Reason # 24: Bidders: People who love bidding.
Reason # 25: Auctioneers: People who love auctions.
Reason # 26: Sellers 1: People who have unwanted things to sell.
Reason # 27: Sellers 2: Individuals or companies that want to sell online.
Reason # 28: From sponsor: The first person you go to for support is your sponsor.
Reason # 29: Contact page: SFI/TripleClicks have a contact page where you may submit a ticket for additional support. I have read of affiliates claiming that it took over a week to get some of their issues addressed.
Reason # 30: Forum: There is a forum but it takes a pretty long time to get queries answered.
Reason # 31: Ask SC: But in all, the best way to get help would be to use the “Ask SC” (SFI Community) tab. This is because SFI affiliates can get around 50 VP when their answer to a query is voted in the top 3, so many participate in it.
Reason # 32: Tools & Training: You have access to training when you join SFI. You can also read several other pages on how you can learn to be successful with SFI. SFI also provides you marketing methods/aids.
B. 11 REASONS WHY YOU MAY NOT JOIN TRIPLECLICKS
Reason # 1: SFI affiliates have to maintain a minimum of 1500 VP each month to keep their status. This often obliges you to buy TCredits.
Reason # 2: It’s very slow to make any money with TripleClicks.
Reason # 3: The training isn’t very good.
Reason # 4: Contact page: Some affiliates claim it took over a week to get some of their issues addressed.
Reason # 5: Forum: The forum takes a pretty long time to get queries answered.
Tools and services
Reason # 6: There aren’t enough tools and services
SFI’s negative reviews
Reason # 7: There are a lot of negative reviews about SFI which could have repercussions on TripleClicks
Reason # 8: Most products at TripleClicks are overpriced, making it hard to resell them. The price gets worse if you purchase the items with Tcredits or your Member Reward Points (where it can be almost double the original price).
Reason # 9: I read a review where the author complained that a seller took about two months to deliver his product.
Price Bender Auctions
Reason # 10: You can lose a lot of money with the Price Bender Auctions.
Reason # 11: It’s free to join but costs money to participate in.
My Final Opinion of TripleClicks
If for nothing at all, you can get involved with TripleClicks for their auctions, daily deals, or for some of their fairly priced products. If you have virtual or physical products (even used ones) to sell, TripleClicks is for you. TripleClicks can also serve you if you can convince local companies to become ECAs.
