A company pays students to advertise for them. The student gets given a starter kit from the company, including, a bag or a t-shirt. They are also given a book of tokens. To get paid they have to send people to the company- where the tokens come in. Every token is linked to a sponsored student and when
one is used the student gets a small amount of commission and the customer gets a little bit of money off the product. The more people you send to the shop the more money the student gets and the more money the company gets.
||This is fine, until it turns into a pyramid scheme, because the students are all spening 10 times as much as they would notmally to get <10% commission, as they're going to their mate's company to return the favour of their mates going to theirs.
