The Email Processing System (EPS) website says this is a legitimate ’email processing job’ that allows you to make a substantial amount of money working from home.
Unfortunately, the real story is far different to this as you are about to discover.
Email Processing System Review
First off, I want to be absolutely clear that this is not a legitimate email processing job or business. No one is getting hired, and schemes like this are not legitimate ways to build an online business. Period.
So what is it exactly?
EPS is a chain recruiting scheme, you pay $25 to join and recruit others to do the same.
Essentially, these people are selling you the ‘privilege’ to promote a bag of air. After you buy your bag of air, you then go out and attempt to convince others to buy the same bag of air, at which time you’ll make a cool $25.
Sounds silly I know, but you aren’t actually selling people anything other than the right to sell the same system you just bought. It’s very similar to a cash gifting scheme in that, you pay your sponsor directly and anyone you recruit pays you directly.
How EPS Works (2017 update)
There are many websites promoting this ONE scheme, but they all operate in the same way.
- Sign up for $25 which is paid directly to your sponsor
- Jump onto Facebook and SPAM people into joining the same scheme
- Once they pay you, send them an email explaining how to do what you just did
This is the reality of how this scheme works.
But since members pay members, what’s in it for the people behind this scheme? This was unclear when I originally published this review, but after finding newer versions of this scheme it has since become clear.
EPS Version 1 | http://getpaidwithepstoday.weebly.com
This is the version I originally reviewed. On the above site, there is no mention of fees to participate in this, beyond the $25 signup fee.
The only other (optional) cost mentioned was a $10 fee for a duplicate website to promote this. After doing some digging, they are actually selling people a free Weebly website (https://www.weebly.com/pricing) with their sales page template pre-installed so they make 100% profit on selling you this. They would make this money off everyone who signs up regardless of who signed them up.
So, according to this version, the company only makes money when they sign members up directly. Since no company does anything without chasing a profit, the only logical conclusion of their agenda beyond selling a $10 website is:
- It’s a complete scam and no one actually get’s any commissions
- They sell your personal information and/or;
- They upsell you more and more products once you join
After stumbling across the newer version though, the real fees became clear.
EPS Version 2 | http://people-industry.com
This is where the truth comes out. These people “actually” take a 25% cut out of any commissions you earn:
They were also banned from using PayPal and as a result they’re now using PaySpree which charges a $2 fee on any transactions.
In other words, you do not make $25 per sale, you make $16.75 in profit whenever someone you recruit into this scheme pays you.
There’s nothing wrong with legitimate companies taking a percentage of the sale of legitimate products and services. This is perfectly normal. But legit companies are upfront about their fee structure, and they sell real products and services.
There is nothing legitimate about EPS or the way it operates. Plain and simple.
Why Schemes Like This Suck
It is possible to actually make money with EPS, but it is not sustainable and does not help the majority of members make money.
Whenever a system is focussed solely on mass recruiting and there are no tangible products or services being sold, it’s a disaster waiting to happen. There are only so many people willing to join a scheme like this, which means there is (mathematically) a time limit on any such scheme.
Not to mention, spamming people on social media is both unethical and lame, and it sure as heck will not help you achieve long term results in your business.
Aside from the obvious pitfalls in the model itself, and assuming you want to promote this without spamming, there are some very real barriers to making this work.
You need targeted traffic.
You can have the best offer in the world but without getting people in front of that offer you’ll make nothing.
These people are teaching you to post links in social media and craigslist etc which is not only spammy but totally useless if you’re looking to make real money. Social media can be awesome if you learn how to add value to people and connect with them over time, but to think you’ll sign up and push your offers to make money is not going to be very profitable.
Either way, there is no legitimate training on traffic generation within this program.
If you are looking for a real way to make money online I can honestly say this is not the way to go. There is no product and the whole set-up is sketchy at best, not to mention you are being taught to spam social media and classifieds to get traffic which is useless.
It might only be $25 to join, but to make money with this you’ll be buying a lot of traffic. If you are new to internet marketing you’ll have no idea how to make those advertizing dollars count and I can say from experience that is not a good boat to be in.
If you are going to pay all that extra money for training and advertising then you are far better off promoting a more legitimate and worthwhile program. There are many free affiliate programs you can join which allow you to promote real products people actually buy on a daily basis. There really is no need to join some spammy scheme like EPS.
