How MLM companies can use this product?
Holiday vouchers can be used as a product or service in MLM Companies. MLM Companies can provide holiday voucher as a gift or as a part of product package to user. And to provide it, MLM Company has to purchase it from or do agreement with any service provider who provides holiday services, by giving service provider money of holiday vouchers in advance, at the time of agreement. After that, MLM Company can provide purchased holiday voucher to its users, service of which will be provided by service provider from which company has purchased vouchers. And the, users of the MLM company with Holiday Voucher or Voucher code can use Holiday voucher provided to them, by using redemption method provided by the service provider. If redemption method is offline, MLM Companies will get printed holiday vouchers which they will provide to their customers. And if redemption method is online then company will have a virtual place, let’s say a website, or an application from where user can redeem provided voucher, redemption data collected from there will be sent to service provider by MLM company and Service provider will provide holiday service to user or customer of MLM company.
Let’s understand this process by an example. Suppose that there is an MLM company name “A” and this company wants to provide Holiday Voucher to its users. And there is a holiday service provider name “H”. Now MLM company “A” will go to service provider “H”. If service provider is providing service of holiday through offline redemption, MLM company will have to purchase fixed quantity of printed holiday voucher from it by paying amount of the vouchers purchased,which will have a specific time limit. After purchasing vouchers, MLM companies can provide, distribute or sell these vouchers to their customers or users. Now, if user wants to redeem voucher, he/she will have to fill up redemption form printed on holiday voucher and send it to either MLM company or service provider, as per their system. After receiving redemption claim form, service provider will check if it complies with terms and conditions or not. If it complies with terms and conditions, user will get his/her requested holiday. And if service provider is providing service of holiday vouchers through online redemption, user will have to fill up redemption form available online, data of which will go to service provider. After receiving data of redemption form, service provider will check if data complies with terms and conditions or not. If it complies with terms and conditions, user will be provided with requested holiday.
This is how Holiday Vouchers in MLM Industry works. There are many service providers in market who claims to provide holiday vouchers, but we strongly recommend to choose service provider who genuinely willing to provide services to users of it’s client MLM companies instead of just collecting money from them. And if they are providing holiday vouchers with online redemption facility, it will be good for both company and its users.
