Ei42.com - A Revolution In Cash Back?

I've previously looked at cash back sites in parts one and two of the incredibly popular Cash Back: How to Make Money Online series. Since then hundreds of clone cash back sites have popped up, I've largely ignored them as they offer nothing new or exciting.

This was until I was contacted by a new cash back site that offered a slightly different model, one that benefited you and your friends. The site Ei42 (E is for Everything, I is for Internet, 42 is the Answer to Life the Universe and Everything) sets you up with your own on-line store which you earn cash back through. Anyone else you get to use your on-line store will also earn you cash back.

My on-line store is : www.ei42.com/pwhite

People can also join Ei42 through your store and earn themselves cash back. As a reward you get 10% of the cash back they earn. If other people then sign up through your friends store you still earn cash back, this time 4%. As the model expands and more and more of your friends and their friends join and spend through the site you still earn money.

The store is the most impressive part of the site, the way they have integrated products from different merchants is different to any cash back site I've seen before. The themes leave a lot to be desired aesthetically but are usable and well structured.

However compared to other cash back sites such as Quidco and Rpoints Ei42 does not show you how much cash back you will get from each purchase. The creators state that they want to remove the worry involved in using a cash back site and having to work out how much you will earn from each purchase.

From the people I've shown Ei42 they think its a great idea because you can make money out of your friends however they would not use the site as they don't know how much they would be making. One person made the example that if Quidco no longer offered cash back then you would have no incentive to use Quidco and if you do not know how much you are making from each retailer how can you decide who to buy from?

I would like to see Ei42 expand on their store and provide web masters with ways to integrate the store into their own sites - so for instance I could sell products through ImAFish earning cash back. They could even provide Facebook widgets of products allowing people to buy and earn cash back that way.

Ei42 is evolutionary rather than revolutionary and I've found it hard to see it more than a cash back site. Ei42 has removed an important part of the cash back process and replaced it with a complex referral program. Your own store is impressive but needs to be taken to the next level so web masters can integrate it with their own sites and social networking profiles.

This really does work. This

This really does work. This is a new site which is proving to be very popular.

You basically earn a bit of cash back on anything you buy from your shop, but you will also get commission on anything that is bought from your friends shop, and your friends friends shop, and so on for 7 levels - thats the beauty of it.

I think this is a great

I think this is a great idea!

The scale of opportunity is huge! I've just made my first purchase through Amazon.

The best part is you don't have to buy stuff to join etc. You buy stuff when you wish to buy stuff that you would have bought anyways (that's a mouthful)!

I was a bit suspicious at first but then figured out I have nothing to lose! So, you might as well give this a try and see it work for you and your network!

Happy shopping!

Hi there, I started my ei42

Hi there,I started my ei42 store a few weeks ago at *edit*I have about 40 friends so far and have recieved a payment in the first month, just for shopping for everyday goods that i would have done anyway.lets wait and see but seems good so farmarksmallest-bikini.com

I searched for bad reviews

I searched for bad reviews about ei42 but obviously everyone who posts about it says a good review as they want people to join. So I guess we'll never know how successful it really is! Unless someone's very honest!

From what I've seen it's not

From what I've seen it's not been a massive success, I have 33 friends and have so far made

Absolutely, I think that

Absolutely,
I think that affiliate marketing (that is promoting other companies websites and they pay you commissions for sales achieved)
is by far the best way to make money on the internet.
infact I love this method so much i have produced a website which details other programs available at www.homebusinesszone.co.uk
and have recently added ei42 to my working list.

But it only works if you are willing to be dedicated and enable focussed activity to promote it.so that you get about 20-50 members siged-up under you.
Then the group grows by itself and with time can be very large this is when you see the commissions growing.

So it is not a get-rich scheme but it is possible to create a residuall (monthly) income from it.

I don't understand why I

I don't understand why I would want to give some of my cashback to friends rather than keeping it to myself... There are cashback websites that give me 100% of cashback without any complicated referral programmes or without taking money away from me.

Yoanka, you obviously have

Yoanka, you obviously have no idea of the power of networking! Would you rather have a million pounds or 1p that doubled every day for a few months?! I love the ei42 concept, I got involved 8 days ago - I have over 130 in my team and around

Re your post as below. I would be interested to know how much you will claim to have made by christmas!

The thing is that you need

The thing is that you need to rely on what others buy and hope they buy a lot so you can get a bit from it. This is nothing but a simple pyramid structure which was proven to be useless and is banned in many countries. Only those at the top of the pyramid can earn some decent money when all at lower levels struggle and earn mentioned

It's a great idea and

It's a great idea and similar website have been available in the US for a little while and there are a number of other UK based sites which let users bookmark products they like, then earn a referral from all that they 'sell' to their friends. Shopping sites and cashback sites have been merging into social cashback shopping and community sites which share the commissions available due to online marketing budgets with everyone who helps to spread help and advice about products they like. It's all about sharing product recommendations with your friends. A genuine referral is always the best form of marketing after all!

It's certainly intriguing to

It's certainly intriguing to see a new idea appear in a very crowded area. As Pete says, tons of clone cashback sites that fail to offer anything new have been sprouting up all over the place. I'm sure they will start to disappear before long too - and more than likely taking those 'not reached the minimum payout yet' balances with them too... (Tip: use a reliable established site!).Ei42 does offer a new approach which is at least refreshing. Although putting 70% of the overide on level 7 seems an odd idea as surely most people won't reach that depth?

I HAVE READ SOME CONTRASTING

I HAVE READ SOME CONTRASTING COMMENTS ON EI42, IN THE MAIN FAVOURABLE, I JOINED A MONTH AGO, PEOPLE ARE A LITTLE UNSURE ABOUT IT, THINKING, WHY IS HE OFFERING ME THIS, WHATS HE UP TO, ALMOST PARANOID, THATS FOLK, OTHERS, YEAH, THATS COOL I,LL JOIN, JUST AS I DID, AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED FOR JUST A LITTLE EFFORT ON A REGULAR BASIS, EVEN JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY, IF IT WORKS, JUST 50 QUID A MONTH IN THE POT ONGOING IS BETTER THAN 50 QUID DOWN, YOU DON,T KNOW UNTIL YOU HAVE A GO, THATS WHAT I SAY. YOU SAVE MONEY WHICH EVER WAY YOU LOOK AT WHEN YOU BUY ON-LINE.

@ Cashback Guru. The idea of

@ Cashback Guru.

The idea of putting 70% on level 7 is that it maximises the earning to the maximun amount of people on one level. Level 7 will have the most amount of people on it so you get the most amount of money from it.

It also encourages people to work at it to get the most out of the levels, you want people to get as many people as possible so it scales down as far as you can go. It also means that people don't see it as a get rich quick scheme and really put the effort in.

I have an EI42 shop, and so far in just over a year I've earnt just shy of £100. Nothing earth shattering, but for the last year I've not really done anything on it as I moved country and job, but in that time 80% of the money I earnt and around 100 new people joined whilst I wasn't doing anything. To me that's the potential power of this.
