trading schemes

trading schemes
An increasingly common way of selling goods is through trading schemes which operate on more than one level. Participants (or "downliners") in such schemes buy goods from the scheme organiser or other participants and then sell them to the general public, usually in their homes. Participants earn commission from downliners' sales. Such schemes are quite legal but are closely regulated. This area is likely to be subject to legislative change.
