The 300 I was talking about is a purchase of vouchers for one of the big trading partners. It represents 300 worth of purchasing power at that shop ( Tescos, M&S, PC world or similar ). It is not on your Lyoness card which is not a debit card anyway - it is their own vouchers.
YOU CAN BECOME A SHOPPER AND GET THE CARD BY MERELY SHOPPING AND YOU ARE STILL ABLE TO RECOMMEND PEOPLE AND GET YOUR HALF PERCENTS AND DISCOUNTS WITHOUT ANY PAYMENT INTO THE SYSTEM WHATSOEVER.
Is that clear ?
A purchase of that size gets you a card with discount up front. No down payment - no 2k - no cost because you get the value straight back and have a discount to show for it.
You have a very sketchy understanding of the system. I do not propose to address all your knowledge gaps through here - I should live that long. We would bore everyone silly.
I propose that we meet for a chat. We can talk it through and answer all your queries. I would not expect to convert you in any way but at least you would have your facts straight. If you still oppose Lyoness at least it would be informed criticism.
Are you that open minded ?
For my own business, I have had a couple of extra customers through Lyoness but I anticipated a slow burn because the catchment is still relatively small. Less than 10,000 customers in Ireland but growing fast. There are no subscription fees or ongoing charges so I can wait.
So the retailer gets a turn key international loyalty system for just over 2K with no subscription costs - try and find it cheaper.
It is pointless asking a signed up retailer if they are a BP - he/she has to be to bring their business in. Another knowledge gap ?
I always encourage people to dip their toe in the water and shop with the card first. They then see how it works. If they want to take it to the next level it has to be their decision.
Not everyone does it that way admittedly.
You asked for 5 example businesses - I gave you 108.
Will you accept the challenge ?
