In this section I will talk about how to earn money with SFI Marketing group. They have very good compensation plan that allows you to choose what method suits best for you.
The most important thing when it comes to SFI compensation plan is to understand CV or commission volume. I have explained it here, and I have also put some screenshots, to have better understanding of CV.
How to earn money with SFI Marketing group (3 ways):
Promote and sell Tripleclicks products (AFFILIATE PROGRAM). (RECOMMENDED)
You can create and build your own team (MLM PROGRAM/TEAM SALES) (OPTIONAL)
Earn money with PROFIT SHARING PROGRAM. You can earn profits from EVERY sale at Tripleclicks (BONUS)
The great thing about SFI Marketing group is that they offer people the choice of a business opportunity in form of sponsoring affiliates and creating your own team or you can become an affiliate of Tripleclicks online store with many products and bargains.
The choice is yours. It depends about your character and personality.
Some people are better for building downlines, some are better at building customer lists. I have explained benefits of both ways below. .
SFI Commission Volume
There is 6 different ways you can earn money from the SFI Compensation plan. To understand the SFI Compensation Plan, you need to have an understanding of CV (Commission Volume).
Every product at TripleClicks.com has a CV value.
This value is determined by the product’s margin (The difference between the product’s wholesale/base cost and the price the product sells for).
The higher the margin, the higher the CV. A product’s CV is the maximum amount that can be paid out in commissions for that product. Let’s take a look how CV looks like if someone purchases 200 Tcredits…
When you click on SFI toolbox, new window will appear and you will see CV for this product.
As you can see, price for 200 Tcredits is $64, and CV for 200 Tcredits is $22.14, which means this is a maximum amount that can be paid for this product. Commission Volume is split on 3 types of commissions and you can earn from all 3 ways listed here: Direct comissions ($9.96), TC Executive Pool (EP – $8.86) and Co-Sponsor Commisions (CSC – $3.32). It is explained below in SFI compensation plan.
Ok, now you understand what is CV (Commission Volume) and how it works. Let’s take a look at SFI’s compensation plan.
SFI Commission Volume and how to earn money with SFI
Direct commissions (Qualification – Starter Affiliate/0-1499 Versa points per month)
Tripleclicks Executive pool or profit sharing program (Qualification – Executive Affiliate – 1500 or more Versa Points per month)

Co-Sponsor commissions (Qualification – Executive Affiliate – 1500 or more Versa Points per month)
Tcredit Bonus (Qualification – Executive Affiliate 2 (EA2) – minimum second month as Executive Affiliate)
SFI Pay-per-action (Qualification – Starter Affiliate / 0-1499 Versa Points per month) NOT RECOMMENDED!!
1) Direct Commissions (Qualification – Starter Affiliate / 0-1499 Versa Points per month)
Each time an SFI affiliate that you have personally sponsored–OR a TC member that you have personally referred–places an order at TripleClicks.com, you earn 45% of the CV.
SFI’s Direct Commission program is powerful because once you sign up a members or affiliates, they become your customers for life! SFI takes care of all order processing, product shipments, and customer service at no cost to you, and pays you a Direct Commission for every order placed by your members and affiliates for life!*
Special Note: For purchases by personally referred Tripleclicks members, you’ll ALSO earn all the VP** on the order–which can earn you additional shares of the TripleClicks Executive Pool!
Earnings Example #1: Let’s say that your personally referred TC members buys 200 Tcredits. 200 Tcredits have $22.14 CV and value of 1661 VP. You earn a $9.96 Direct Commission (45% of $22.14), 1661 Versa Points and 1661 shares in the TripleClicks Executive Pool.
Earnings Example #2: If your SFI downline member purchases 200 Tcredits, you will also earn $9.96 Direct commission, but you will not earn neither Versa Points or Tripleclicks Executive Pool shares.
2) Tripleclicks Executive Pool or PROFIT SHARING PROGRAM (Qualification – Executive Affiliate – 1500 or more Versa Points per month)
SFI’s TripleClicks Executive Pool provides a simple, easy, and lucrative income stream that all SFI affiliates can tap into every month.
SFI-powered TripleClicks.com is one of the fastest-growing e-commerce Website in the world, and SFI will put 40% of the CV of EVERY purchase–companywide–into the TripleClicks Executive Pool for affiliates to share in!
This method of earning is also called PROFIT SHARING.
As you can see from the screenshot above, for example, when someone purchases 200 Tcredits, TC Executive Pool $8.86 is a sum which is added to TripleClicks executive Pool.
But this $8.86 is just a small part of total TC Executive Pool share which will be shared to all EA2s and above through Executive Pool Shares (personal as well as matching VersaPoints) every month.
Thousands of products are sold every month at Tripleclicks and total sum is converted into millions of Versa Points.
Versa Points are converted into money at the end of each month, and they are distributed to SFI affilates, based on their ranks and collected Versa Points.
How to share in the pool:
For each VersaPoint (VP) you accumulate during the month, you will receive one share of the month’s pool. The more VP you score, the more you will earn from the TripleClicks Executive Pool! It’s that simple.
VersaPoints are something SFI awards to you for doing various actions throughout the month. The more points you score each month, the more you can earn from the pool.
3) ECA referral program (Qualification – Executive Affiliate – 1500 or more Versa Points per month)
Make referrals to the TripleClicks E-Commerce Associate (ECA) Program and earn VersaPoints and lucrative royalties for life!
Simply refer companies that sell products to your ECA Gateway. For each that becomes an approved ECA, you’ll earn 10% of the CV on all of their sales at TripleClicks.com.
Plus, you’ll earn an immediate 100 VP when your ECA generates their first $10 or more in sales.
The ECA referral program is very powerful because all you have to do is introduce an ECA to TripleClicks and you’re all set to earn royalties for life! Every time anyone—anywhere in the world—buys something at TripleClicks from one of your referred ECAs, you earn a royalty!
Earnings Example: The total CV for all of your referred ECAs is $20,000. You earn $2000 in ECA Royalties this month (10% of $20,000).
4) Co-Sponsor commissions (Qualification – Executive Affiliate – 1500 or more Versa Points per month)
Each time an SFI affiliate that you are the co-sponsor of places an order at TripleClicks.com, you earn 15% of the CV.
Earnings Example: 200 Tcredits order is placed by one of your co-sponsored SFI affiliates (CSA) that has $22.14 CV. You earn a $3.32 Co-Sponsor Commission (15% of $22.14).
5) Tcredit Bonus (Qualification – Executive Affiliate 2 (EA2) – minimum second month as Executive Affiliate)
TCredits allow you to take FULL advantage of your TripleClicks membership benefits and can also be used in many ways to build your SFI business. A single TCredit sells for $1.99, but you can receive, as part of your compensation as an SFI affiliate, up to 24 TCredits FREE every month!
Receive 10 TCredits if you’re an EA2
Receive 12 TCredits if you’re a Bronze Team Leader
Receive 14 TCredits if you’re a Silver Team Leader
Receive 16 TCredits if you’re a Gold Team Leader
Receive 20 TCredits if you’re a Platinum Team Leader
Receive 24 TCredits if you’re a Diamond Team Leader
6) SFI Pay-per-action (Qualification – Starter Affiliate / 0-1499 Versa Points per month) NOT RECOMMENDED!!
SFI Pay-Per-Action (SFIPPA) is an optional, supplemental income program available to all SFI affiliates that allows you to act as an advertiser for SFI and earn supplemental income by getting others to take actions such as filling out forms.
Each time you generate a qualified SFIPPA action, you earn a bounty. The amount of the bounty varies depending on the action. The SFIPPA currently available (with more in the works) is:
SFI AFFILIATE SIGN-UPS
Bounty: Up to $10 for each qualified sign-up
I do not recommend to use SFIPPA because the downside is that it’s only a one time bonus for you. The affiliates that sign up DON’T become YOUR PSA’s, instead they get distributed amongst other affiliates within SFI.
You never know how many affiliates can become Team Leaders or great and active workers, so my recommendation is that you avoid this option.
SFI commission payment options
SFI currently offers FIVE payment options:
You can have a Check mailed to you (not recommended if you are not a United States or Canada resident)
You can receive your commissions to your PayPal account
They can deposit your commission via ACH Direct Deposit (available if you have a United States bank checking account only)
You can have your commissions simply accumulated on account. Each month, they’ll simply add your commissions to your SFI account until you choose your payment method. Note: This is the default setting for new affiliates
Receive your monthly commissions on to TripleClicks MasterCard (Best option). SFI Affiliates can get a TripleClicks MasterCard from Payoneer once they have accumulated $20 in commissions. They will be notified via e-mail and alerts in the SFI Affiliate Center to order a card.
Advantages of Tripleclicks MasterCard:

No need to wait days or weeks for a commission check to arrive in the mail…or pay extra fees to cash your check. Instead, get your SFI commissions paid directly to your card, then convert to cash instantly (in your country’s currency) at any ATM machine displaying the MasterCard acceptance mark.

Benefits and earning potential from SFI Affiliate and MLM programs
Why you should promote Tripleclicks online store? (Affiliate program) RECOMMENDED
First of all, when your PRM (personally referred member) signs up as a Tripleclicks member through your gateway, he is your customer for a lifetime, which means that you will earn Direct Commissions whenever he buys something for the rest of your life.
There is no limit how many people you can refer to Tripleclicks online store. Tripleclicks has nearly 90 000 products and EVERY product has CV and you will earn earn 45% Direct commissions whether product costs $4 or $400. EVERY TIME.
This is the most powerful and unique feature of SFI Direct Commisions program. It is also highly recommended that you promote Pricebenders Penny Auctions (SFI adds new products very often for bidding). When you choose your passions (products to promote), you can do wonders as SFI and Tripleclicks affiliate.
Another powerful feature is that you will also earn Versa Points when your PRM purchases any product. Let’s take a look again on 200 Tcredits example.
As you can see 200 Tcredits are worth 1661 Versa points. Which means if your PRM buys 200 Tcredits, besides $9.96 Direct commission, you will also earn 1661 Versa Points that will confirm your EA status (which is worth 1500 VP) and you will also earn 1661 shares from the TripleClicks Executive Pool which will be converted into money at the end of each month. How great is that?
I recommend that you focus on this method first when you are starting out with SFI. But SFI also offers an opportunity of earning money with their 12 level deep Affiliate program…
Why you should try to build a team? (MLM opportunity) OPTIONAL
In my opinion this method of earning money is a bonus method, but it can become very good income after some time. It is much harder to earn money with team building, but you can earn really big leveraged income in form of ‘override’ commissions with this option.
You can earn on up to 12 generations (i.e. “multi levels”) below you.
For example, if you personally develop just ONE new Executive Affiliate (EA) a week–that will collect 1500 Versa Points and maintain his or her rank of EA every month–and teach JUST TWO OTHERS to do the same, after just one year you could be earning at least $600 a month ($7,200 a year). And after just two years, you could be earning over $1,200 a month ($14,400 a year).
Even if you can develop only ONE new EA a month and have just 10 others in your group doing the same, you can build a nice part-time income of over $200 per month after just a year.
