Bitcoin is back at TripleClicks!

Bitcoin sign

We are very excited today to announce that, effective immediately, we’re accepting Bitcoin again at TripleClicks!

Yes, we’re excited indeed to join thousands of other forward-thinking businesses already accepting Bitcoin, such as:

  • Microsoft
  • WordPress
  • Overstock.com
  • Subway
  • Reddit
  • Virgin Galatic
  • Intuit
  • Dish Network
  • Whole Foods
  • Expedia
  • Dell
  • Tiger Direct

Yes, like these companies and many more, we believe that there is a major transition underway.  The Internet has dramatically changed the world…and digital, decentralized currency like Bitcoin appears to be the next revolution.  SFI intends to be an active participant in this revolution (both with Bitcoin and potentially other cryptocurrencies as well)!

Nicholas Cary, CEO of Blockchain.info, describes the power of Bitcoin like this:

“People everyday of their lives use email, they probably have no idea how it works under the covers, but they use it because it’s simple, free, easy, and allows them to send messages anywhere in the world for free. It’s the same thing with Bitcoin, send money anywhere in the world for free.”

And especially for SFI and its million+ affiliates all over the world, Bitcoin has the potential to be a real game-changer.  Right now, billions of people around the world cannot get a bank account and cannot make international transactions.  Bitcoin changes all this.  If you have access to the Internet, you no longer need a bank account, credit card, or other legacy payment method.  Indeed, armed with just a basic smart phone and a free Bitcoin wallet app, you’ve got everything you need to start sending and receiving money right now.  And, yes, we’ll be looking at paying out commissions in Bitcoin, too—paid instantly to your Bitcoin wallet!


Using Bitcoin at TripleClicks is EASY

To spend your Bitcoin at TripleClicks, when checking out, simply choose Bitcoin as your method of payment and follow the simple directions provided.   That’s it!

Note: Using Bitcoin is 100% optional.  Just think of it as another payment option offered by TripleClicks to give our customers as many choices as possible.


TCredits_Stack

FREE BONUS TCredits when you use Bitcoin!

Yes, we’re pretty excited about making some waves with Bitcoin this year! And that’s why we’re also introducing today a new BONUS TCredits program for when you use Bitcoin.

Here’s how it works:

On any purchase of a TCD (TripleClicks Direct product) paid with Bitcoin, we will automatically deposit FREE BONUS TCredits into your TripleClicks account:

  • Receive 10 FREE TCredits ($5.90 value) with any $20 order
  • Receive 20 FREE TCredits ($9.80 value) with any $35 order
  • Receive 25 FREE TCredits ($12.25 value) with any $50 order
  • Receive 40 FREE TCredits ($19.60 value) with any $75 order
  • Receive 60 FREE TCredits ($15.20 value) with any $100 order
  • Receive 100 FREE TCredits ($32.00 value) with any $150 order
  • AND for any order of $200 or more, you’ll receive 1 FREE TCredit for every dollar spent!  Example: Place an order for $262 and you’ll receive 262 FREE TCredits ($83.84 value).

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  1. The bonus TCredits you receive will be based on the amount of your order paid with Bitcoin.  Example: If you pay part of your order with MRP, you will not earn Bonus TCredits on the portion paid with MRP.
  2. At this time, Bitcoin is not eligible as a payment option for Auto-Delivery orders (though we hope to add this in the future).
  3. Again, remember, ONLY orders for TripleClicks Direct products qualify for the Bonus TCredits.

New policy on checks for commissions

Businesswoman Hand Signing Cheque

As this article clearly illustrates, the use of checks as a form of payment is rapidly collapsing.  For SFI, it’s a particularly poor payment method because of our vast international footprint which demands faster, cheaper, better ways to receive one’s commissions each month.  Cutting and mailing out check is also just plain inefficient and, hence, not cost effective.

So, effective today, March 1st, 2017, we will begin phasing out the use of checks for commission payments.

You may change to one of the following alternate payment options:

  • TripleClicks Debit Card
  • PayPal
  • ACH Direct Deposit (electronic deposit to your bank account, US only)

OR, you can choose to accumulate your commissions on account.  TIP: Commissions that are accumulated can be used for quick and easy purchases at TripleClicks, including all ECA products, as well as business-boosting products like S-Builder Co-op units and mighty TCredits.

Select your payment choice at:

https://www.sfimg.com/MyAccount/EditCommissionPaymentInfo

NOTE: If you wish to continue to have us issue you a check, you may do so, but the monthly fee will be increased, starting today, to $5.00 (and may increase further in the future) to cover our cost to manually issue and process checks.

Four new movies added to Your Choice auction!

auc_choicemoviepackNow available in Your Choice Movie Pack auctions:

  • The Revenant (Blu-ray)
  • Deadpool (Blu-ray)
  • The Big Short (Blu-ray)
  • The Good Dinosaur (Blu-ray)

Remember, with Your Choice auctions, you get to pick the movie title you want and receive 50 TCredits!

About The RevenantLeonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy star in this visceral, epic tale of survival and betrayal inspired by true events that’s set in America’s uncharted wilderness.

About DeadpoolWade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is a former Special Forces operative who now works as a mercenary. His world comes crashing down when evil scientist Ajax (Ed Skrein) tortures, disfigures and transforms him into Deadpool. The rogue experiment leaves Deadpool with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor. With help from mutant allies Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Deadpool uses his new skills to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life. (Note: This movie will ship to auction winners upon its 05/10/16 release date.)

About The Big ShortIn 2008, Wall Street guru Michael Burry realizes that a number of subprime home loans are in danger of defaulting. Burry bets against the housing market by throwing more than $1 billion of his investors’ money into credit default swaps. His actions attract the attention of banker Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling), hedge-fund specialist Mark Baum (Steve Carell) and other greedy opportunists. Together, these men make a fortune by taking full advantage of the impending economic collapse in America.

About The Good DinosaurFrom the innovative minds of Disney-Pixar comes a hilariously heartwarming adventure about the power of confronting and overcoming your fears and discovering who you are meant to be. THE GOOD DINOSAUR asks the question: what if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely, and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In this epic journey into the world of dinosaurs, an apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. Bring home this original story full of humor, heart, action and imagination, perfect for the whole family!

Confused about Pricebenders?

PricebendersLogoOur Pricebenders Penny Auctions is one of our most popular destinations at TripleClicks. However, some affiliates–including some in your own team–might not fully understand how these auctions actually work.

Very simply, with Pricebenders Auctions, you can bid on and win hot, in-demand, name brand products (i.e., Amazon Kindles, iPads, silver bullion coins, laptops, and more) as well as PSAs, CSAs, S-Builder Co-op units, and other SFI “business-builder” tools, for a fraction of the retail price. In fact, auction winners typically save more than 90% off–with a MINIMUM savings of 77% off (excluding cost of bids, if any)!

Here’s an example of just a few recent Pricebenders Auctions:

* Black & Decker 20-Volt Lithium-Ion Drill (reg. $169.99) auctioned off for $1.74
* Apple iPad Mini 4 (space gray) (reg. $399) auctioned off for just $2.90
* Sony 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-ray Disc Home Theater System w/Built-In Wi-Fi (reg. $299.99) auctioned off for $0.72
* Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband (reg. $99.95) auctioned off for $1.19

Pricebenders Auctions are open for worldwide bidding…and any affiliate anywhere in the world can participate. For physical items won at auction, we offer FREE SHIPPING to the U.S. and Canada. International Affiliates can have the item shipped to a United States address at no additional cost OR choose Your Choice Dropshipping (among other options).

Auctions are ongoing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and each one starts at just one cent, with the price going up by just one cent more for each bid placed. The final bidder may then buy the item for the ending price…OR opt for a TC gift certificate or a quantity of TCredits. Join the fun today!

But that’s just the surface of all the fun available at Pricebenders! For a great rundown of ALL the bells and whistles of Pricebenders Auctions, as well as winning strategies and tips, FAQs, and more, see the How It Works article.


Re-post: Pricebenders Auctions open for worldwide bidding!

PricebendersLogoSome members may mistakenly think that Pricebenders Auctions are available only to US and Canadian members.

ON THE CONTRARY, ALL Pricebenders auctions are open to ALL bidders from ALL countries!

That’s right: Although we can only ship auction items within the U.S. and Canada, ANY TC member from anywhere in the world can bid on (and win!) any Pricebender auction.

How? Simple! Through our exclusive TC Gift Certificate Exchange and Your Choice Dropshipping programs, TC Members living outside the U.S. and Canada can join the fun and participate fully in Pricebenders Auctions.

NOTE: If possible, International Affiliates can also have the item shipped to a United States address at no additional cost by entering the name of the friend or family member and their U.S. address in the Ship-To fields during checkout. 

Here’s how it works:

GIFT CERTIFICATE EXCHANGE

screenshot_511Go and ahead and bid on any Pricebenders Auction you like. If you win a physical item that must be shipped and you live outside the U.S. or Canada, you’ll automatically be offered your choice of a TC gift certificate or a quantity of TCredits (each of which can be redeemed on virtually any product at TripleClicks).

Here’s an example: You bid on a tablet and win.  But because you live in Germany, when you check out, you’re offered your choice of a gift certificate or a quantity of TCredits.  You choose the gift certificate.  You can now purchase a tablet from a local ECA, eliminating or reducing shipping time and costs.

But it gets better…

YOUR CHOICE DROPSHIPPING

Let’s say that you really WANT the product that was auctioned off at Pricebenders. No problem! If you don’t have a U.S. or Canadian address you can have your item shipped to, you can simply use the Your Choice Dropshipping (YCD) program to redeem your TC gift certificate you received after winning your auction. Then, just redeem it for the same or similar Pricebender auction item…or ANY item of your choice from some of the world’s most popular e-commerce sites!

YCD currently works with the following 11 Amazon sites:
screenshot_759
NORTH AMERICA

EUROPE

ASIA

Just submit the URL of the product you want to TripleClicks, and we’ll take it from there.  We’ll deduct the amount of the item from your gift certificate balance (plus a $8 service fee) and have the item shipped directly from the site to you! See details.

Simply put…the Your Choice Dropshipping program essentially lets you bid for anything YOU want!  

To find out more about the Gift Certificate Exchange program, see this support page at TC…or learn all about the YCD program HERE.
