MYCENTERBID LTD | COMPENSATION PLAN3INTRODUCTIONMyCenterbid is a Network Marketing business which uses the power of personalrecommendation and social media to promote its products. The company is the marketingarm of the new online auction website centerbid.eu which provides customers with the chanceto win consumer products at a dramatically reduced price.Central to the success of the auction is the network of affiliates established by MyCenterbid.These global partnerships will utilize personal connections to promote the Centerbid.eu site,harnessing the power of social media to build brand awareness and introduce new customersto this amazing online opportunity.By utilizing the above our aim is to earn and keep our affiliates trust, respect and loyalty sothat they can achieve their personal and financial goals. Along the way they’ll be helpingthousands of customers around the world to save money and have fun.This compensation plan is apliccable for all Independent Affiliates in MyCenterbid.Personal Team - OrganizationThe Personal Team is very simple: Who sponsored whom? If an Affiliate personallysponsors seven Affiliates, then he/she will have seven different teams (sometimes called“legs”). Each of these are independent from the other, and each will probably have adifferent number of Active Affiliates and Customers over time. An Affiliate’s PersonalOrganization only includes Affiliates and Customers added through a direct line ofsponsorship and is independent of the Dual Team Organization. (See Fig. 1)Dual Team - OrganizationThe Dual Team Organization is built in two legs. Each Affiliate has a left side and a rightside and may only be related to a single Affiliate on each side. This looks like the examplein Figure 2.In the example, Affiliate A has one relationship on his left, Affiliate B, and one relationshipon his right, Affiliate C. Affiliates B and C each have exactly the same relationships underthem, left and right.If Affiliate A sponsors another Affiliate, he/she must go under B or C and A chooses wherehe/she goes. This is called “Spillover.” Affiliate D would spillover into B or C’s organization.Note: An Affiliate may have Affiliates in his/her Dual Team Organization who are not in his/her Personal TeamOrganization because of “Spillover.” These Affiliates are a part of his/her Dual Team Organization, but they are nota part of his/her Personal Team Organization.
MYCENTERBID LTD | COMPENSATION PLAN4THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AFFILIATES AND CUSTOMERSTo understand MyCenterbid’s Compensation Plan, it is important to understand the distinction between Affiliatesand Customers. MyCenterbid is in the business of acquiring new Customers for our Penny Auction who purchaseour Products (Bid Packages). Affiliates are compensated based strictly on the sale of MyCenterbid’s andCenterbid’s Products (both their personal sales and the sales made by their Team).No commissions are paid for recruiting new Affiliates.Additionally, only Affiliates may be placed in any of the two bonus Tree’s/organizations.Customers are listed separately under ”My Customers”.AFFILIATE BUSINESS SYSTEM PURCHASE REQUIREMENTIn order to familiarize new Affiliates with MyCenterbid’s Products, sales techniques, sales aids, and other matters,the Company requires that Affiliates purchase an Affiliate Business System for an initial fee and a monthly feefrom then on. Except for the purchase of the Affiliate Business System, no person is required to purchaseMyCenterbid products or sales aids, or to pay any charge or fee to become an affiliate. The Affiliate BusinessSystem is an online tool that includes a personalized marketing website and a back office system with essentialsales and marketing tools to help Affiliates build their MyCenterbid business. The initial and monthly fees for thepurchase of the Affiliate Business System are not commissionable.ACTIVE CUSTOMERSActive Customers will be listed in the Affiliates’s back office under “My Customers”.Customer Sales Volume is credited as Client Aquisition Points (CAPs), to the affiliate who generated the sale oncethe bids are used in the auction. CAPs can generate a bonus every day, for 30 days and are used to calculate howmuch of the daily surplus from the penny auction the Affiliate will receive in form of a Client Aquisition Bonus(CAB) .GOOD STANDING STATUS REQUIREMENTAll MyCenterbid Affiliates must be in “Good Standing” to be eligible to accumulate sales points, CAPs or to earncommissions and bonuses.An Affiliate is/remains in Good Standing by paying his/her monthly Affiliate Business System renewal fee.Once an Affiliate is in Good Standing, he/she begins to accumulate Sales Points toward earning commissions andbonuses and he/she continues to accrue Sales Points while he/she remains in Good Standing. Commissions andBonuses are paid once an Affiliate is in Good Standing and provided he/she remains Active and Tier Qualified.a) If an Affiliate becomes and remains Inactive for more than thirty (30) days, the Sales Volume he/she hasaccumulated will irrevocably expire.b) If an Affiliate becomes and remains Inactive for more than sixty (60) days at any time, the Affiliates’s Agreementmay be terminated at the option of MyCenterbid. An Affiliate terminated for inactivity cannot register for a newposition for twelve (12) months.Enrollment as an Affiliate creates a “Business Center” in the MyCenterbid Dual Team Tree and theMyCenterbid Personal Team Tree, which tracks the sales generated by the Affiliate and his/her team.Affiliates can be, and often are, also Customers.

The standard value of the X-factor is 0.1666 which makes the standard value of each commission cycle€50.-NOTE:If in any given week, if the allocated ratio of gross incoming sales is not enough to cover the commission cyclepayout, the x-factor will be slightly adjusted. If the company wants to increase the commission cycle payout forany reason, the x-factor will be slightly adjusted. This will slightly reduce or increase the normal commission cyclepayout of € 50 per cycle, but will ensure the long term income opportunity with MyCenterbid for all Affiliates.PACKAGE BIDS SALES PONTSPRICE50 PV PACKAGE 50 Personal Bids 25 Sale Points€50100 PV PACKAGE 100 Personal Bids 50 Sale Points€100150 PV PACKAGE 150 Personal Bids 75 Sale Points€150200 PV PACKAGE 200 Personal Bids 100 Sale Points€200300 PV PACKAGE 300 Personal Bids 150 Sale Points€300150 SPLEFT150 SPRIGHT1 CYCLE€50.-+ =
