How the Erth Point Loyalty System works?
1) The Erth Point Loyalty System delivers customers to Businesses (Merchants) on a PAY-per-SALE and CLICKS-are-FREE basis.
a) The Erth Point Marketing System is both a Customer Attraction and Customer Loyalty System to attract Customers and keep all customers coming back again and again.
b) The system operates on the fact; Merchants happily pay to acquire customers as evidenced by the Trillions already spent globally on advertising and marketing every year.
c) The system enables part of every sale (PAY-per-SALE Marketing fee) from every Merchant to every Customer to go toward repairing the damage inflicted upon the planet from our everyday spending via the Rewards4Earth Foundation and its POLECER mandate.
d) Merchants happily pay for the acquisition of a customer to look at their website via a click and are generally prepared to pay more for a guaranteed sale (PAY-per-SALE).
2) ECO – Environmental and/or Community Organisations are willing to provide their Supporters as customers on a PAY-per-SALE and CLICKS-are-FREE basis to enable the ECO to earn an ongoing residual income from their Supporter’s everyday spending and shopping; while simultaneously benefitting their Supporters to potentially get a better deal and earn Erth Points.
a) A ECO cannot be an Erth Ambassador as an Erth Ambassador has to be a person and complete the Erth Ambassador course to ensure they understand their requirements as an Erth Ambassador and what they can and cannot say regarding Erth Points.
3) Supporters are happy to collect Erth Points to benefit themselves and to potentially get a better deal from Merchants. Supporters understand that Erth Points also go to support their Nominated ECO and to help save the planet giving the Supporter triple the contribution.
4) The Supporter (Customer) their nominated ECO and the planet (via the Rewards4Earth Foundation) each receive the same number and percentage of Erth Points, being 30% of the gifted Erth Points which are pre-purchased by the Merchant or via the Erth Points REACTS (Rewards4Earth Automated Card Transaction Service) marketing system.
5) We recruit Merchants and ECOs using the Erth Ambassador network who also receive a lesser value of Erth Points being 10% of the gifted Erth Points.
6) All MLM companies enable the Ambassador to earn a small portion of the sale over multiple levels from one business. Erth™ Ambassadors can earn a small portion of the sale over multiple levels from potentially every business on the planet!
7) Erth Point’s REACTS marketing system ensures Merchants receive $33.33 in sales for every $1 spent in the REACTS system if the minimum 3% PAY-per-SALE fee is utilised.
8) Merchants can use their own loyalty or utilise the loyalty of far larger organisations and attract the Supporters of ECOs as their customers.
a) As part of the REACTS marketing fee goes to the ECO via Erth Points, this incentivises the ECO to provide their Supporters as Customers in return for a passive residual income.
9) The Erth Point System keeps customers coming back again and again by gifting Erth Points to the Customer (Customer Loyalty), the Customer’s nominated ECO (Larger Loyalty and Social Responsibility) and the Planet (Environmental Responsibility), using one or all three payment delivery methods used by the Patented Erth Point Marketing system –
a) The REACTS marketing system operates when a REACTS registered debit/credit card is used with a REACTS registered payment terminal.
b) Once this notification is sent to REACTS, this enables Erth Points to be purchased on electronic exchanges and then gifted to the Supporter and all other parties automatically without any extra procedures or effort from the Merchant’s cashier.
i) It is important to note that no money is taken from the transaction, the funds needed to operate the system are taken from the REACTS marketing balance that is prepaid by the Merchant.
ii) Registration of the card and the terminal is needed for us to match data to enable the REACTS system to be notified a transaction is taking place, at what value and time to ensure the correct amount of Erth™ Points are gifted, and for reconciliation purposes for all parties.
iii) The REACTS Erth Marketing Credit must be purchased in advance; $50 credit is provided with the $220 Merchant joining fee. Once the balance falls below $20 the Merchant must top up their Marketing Balance and the minimum purchase amount is $50 worth of REACTS prepaid marketing services.
c) With cash, direct deposit, or other payment methods, the Erth™ Point BIZ App must be used to gift Erth Points to the Customer (Supporter) and all other parties.
(1) Erth Points must be purchased in advance, $50 worth of Erth Points are credited to the Erth Point BIZ App from the $220 Merchant joining fee. Once the balance of Erth Points falls below $20 if is required that the Merchant purchase more Erth Points with the minimum purchase amount being $50 worth.
d) Using the Erth Point API shopping cart (checkout for online sales) which enables Erth Points to be automatically credited to all parties upon checkout (Coming soon).
i) The API uses the REACTS Erth Marketing Services advance payment system and deducts the fee from the REACTS credited account and Erth Points are gifted to all parties via the REACTS system.
10) It is recommended that the Merchant purchase enough REACTS and Erth Points to cover sales for at least one week to ensure continuity of Erth Point Marketing services rather than spending time and effort to purchase them more frequently.
a) The Merchant can purchase the Minimum $50 worth of Erth Points or enough for many years’ worth of marketing, it is the Merchants choice.
b) The Merchant can also purchase the minimum $50 worth of REACTS pre-paid marketing services or enough for many years in advance, that is a decision for the merchant.
c) Merchants should obtain their own tax advice as to the tax deductibility of both Erth Points and REACTS marketing services based on their own individual situations.
11) Because Erth Points can be earned and spent internationally, and therefore will be traded internationally, their value will continually fluctuate.
a) Down in value like traditional loyalty reward points which disadvantages the holder, and
b) Up in value to benefit the holder (customers), unlike any loyalty reward point we have ever known.
c) The value of Erth Points is determined by supply and demand ascertained by international digital exchanges.
12) A ECO earns Erth Points when one of the ECO’s supporters who has nominated that ECO purchases from a Merchant where Erth Points are earned. All Erth Points are gifted using the magic of REACTS, our API or the BIZ App and its ground-breaking technology.
a) The ECO can sell their Erth Points as desired on exchanges to Merchants who need to purchase them to reward customers and ECOs for making a sale creating a financially viable ecosystem.
13) ErthMarketing Pty Ltd, the Rewards4Earth Foundation Ltd (Charity) and other companies from the Rewards4Earth Group operate the Erth Point Loyalty Reward Program.
14) The Erth Point system enlists Supporters from ECOs by enabling the ECO to share in the advertising and marketing revenue, thereby monetising the loyalty of their Supporters (Customers) in the form of a passive residual income, created from every transaction made to a supporter at a participating Merchant where Erth Points are earned.
a) The system simultaneously benefits and thereby encourages the ECOs Supporters (Customers) to shop at participating Merchants by –
i) gifting them Erth Loyalty Points
ii) helping them to find great deals from participating Merchants.
iii) Gifting the Supporters nominated ECO Erth Points and from that a residual income
iv) Gifting Erth points to the Rewards4Earth Foundation Ltd to assist with the POLECER mandate to repair the planet (see below).
15) Erth Points can be earned at any participating Merchant in the world and spent at any Merchant in the world that accepts them. The system is designed to benefit all Merchants that use the system rather than benefit any specific Merchant, like normal loyalty points do.
16) Merchants pay ErthMarketing Pty Ltd for delivering a customer and sale on a PAY-per-SALE basis to that Merchant. ErthMarketing Pty Ltd keeps 20% of the marketing funds to operate the REACTS Erth Point System and uses 80% of the funds to purchase Erth Points and then gift those Erth Points to participating parties.
17) From the Erth Points purchased ErthMarketing will gift Erth Points to the following parties as part of the Erth Point Loyalty are: –
a) The Supporter (Customer) – 30%
b) The Supporter’s nominated ECO – 30% (Subject to terms and conditions)
c) The Planet via the Rewards4Earth Foundation. – 30%
d) The Erth Ambassador Network – 10%
e) Merchants benefit by converting the ECO Supporters into Customers, enabling the Merchants to make more sales
f) ECOs benefit by collecting Erth Points and then using them to purchase from participating Merchants or selling the Erth Points for local currency back to Merchants via exchanges.
g) It is important to note that neither the Merchant nor the supporter gifts or donates any Erth Points or money to the ECO and it is only a nomination by the Supporter to ErthMarketing that influences ErthMarketing as to where it will gift Erth Points. Having said that we endeavour to gift money to where the supporter nominates and will only stop or reduce the proceeds to the ECO if it can be shown that the ECO is squandering, misappropriating, or is receiving funds in excess of the ECO’s needs.
h) The ECO understands and agrees that it can only be gifted points as per the terms and conditions set out in the ECO agreement.
i) The ECO understands that it cannot be an Erth Ambassador.
j) ErthMarketing and Rewards4Earth reserve the right to alter the percentages at any time to preserve the integrity of the system and keep the system repairing the planet.
18) Example from a $200 transaction (Sale) where the Merchant pays 4% of the transaction to ErthMarketing for delivering them a customer and a Sale –
a) Total paid to ErthMarketing is 4% of $200 = $8 for delivering a Customer (Supporter) and more importantly revenue in the form of a sale.
b) ErthMarketing retains 20% of the $8 = $1.60 to run REACTS and all other parts of the Erth Point system.
c) The remaining 80% = $6.40 is used to purchase Erth Points from exchanges, which could be from ECOs that has been gifted their Erth™ Points or any other holder of Erth Points.
d) The $6.40 worth of Erth™ Points are then gifted from ErthMarketing to the following parties: –
i) The Supporter receives 30% = $1.92 worth of Erth Points
ii) The Supporter’s nominated ECO receives 30% = $1.92 worth of Erth Points subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement.
iii) The planet via the Rewards4Earth Foundation receives 30% = $1.92 worth of Erth Points which funds POLECER organisations to help repair the planet.
iv) The Erth Ambassador network receives 10% = $0.64 worth or Erth Points.
(1) The ECO cannot double dip and be an Erth Ambassador.
e) ErthMarketing and Rewards4Earth reserve the right to alter the percentages at any time to preserve the integrity of the system and keep the system repairing the planet.
19) Using our standard REACTS Merchants only PAY-per-SALE rather than per-CLICK excluding the initial establishment fee.
a) For cash sales, direct deposit or other types of payments not used on REACTS the Merchant will need to possess Erth™ Points which they can purchase from exchanges.
20) The patented Erth Point and Reacts technology ensures all 5-parties benefit –
a) the Supporter (customer) benefits,
b) the Merchant benefits,
c) the Supporters nominated ECO benefits,
d) the Erth Ambassadors benefit and
e) all parties help planet Earth by funding the reparation of our environmental problems.
21) A small part of every transaction from every Merchant to every Supporter in the Erth Point System will be used to fund environmental projects around the world and help save planet Earth from all the destruction mankind forces upon it. The Rewards4Earth Foundation’s key objectives through the POLCER mandate are: –
a) Plastic Reclamation and Recycling Worldwide,
b) Ocean Clean-up and Rejuvenation,
c) Local Causes (such as drought, fire, and flood relief in Australia),
d) Endangered Species Preservation,
e) Clean Energy Technology,
f) Education & Lobbying (on how we can all help save the Planet),
g) Reforestation and Tree Planting.
22) We operate under patents in accordance with the Patents Act 1990 (Cth) within the Commonwealth of Australia and the associated worldwide Patents.
23) ECOs and particularly Sports Clubs understand and agree that all money paid from the system is paid by ErthMarketing Pty Ltd and not from their supporters or Merchants the Supporters purchase from. As such the ECO will treat all money or Erth Points received from the Erth Point system as if it is sponsorship money retrospectively or as a capital gain from their Erth Points.
a) If as an example a Sports Club receives $100,000 from a naming rights sponsor, then the ECO hereby agrees to give Erth Points the equivalent benefits of promotion as it would any sponsor if ErthMarketing gives a similar $100,000 in gifts or donations to the ECO which is commensurate to paying $100,000 in sponsorship.
i) ErthMarketing may agree to a less prominent position on jerseys at ErthMarketing’s discretion if the received amounts are similar.
ii) If ErthMarketing is paying more than any other sponsor ErthMarketing requires that Erth Points be given the prominent promotion as any other main sponsor would receive from the Sports Club unless agreed by ErthMarketing.
24) The ECO agrees that they will give over any fair and reasonable information requested by ErthMarketing to establish the ECOs bona fides and need for money from ErthMarketing and the Erth Point system.
a) If the information requested by ErthMarketing is not received and/or approved by ErthMarketing, ErthMarketing may stop or decrease any funding to the ECO as it sees fit regardless of nominations made by any Supporters using the Erth Point System.
25) It is important to note that neither the Merchant nor the supporter gifts or donates any Erth Points or money to the ECO and it is only a nomination by the Supporter to ErthMarketing that influences ErthMarketing as to where it will gift money. Having said that we endeavour to gift money to where the supporter nominates and will only stop or reduce the proceeds to the ECO if it can be shown that the ECO is squandering, misappropriating, or is receiving funds in excess of the ECO’s needs.
Simplicity and Focus is the key to Success for an Erth™ Ambassador
We have a wonderful system, but it can seem complex. As such, we need to make it simple and easy for all parties to understand and join. The best way Erth™ Ambassadors can do this is by having each member type focus on what they do, which helps other parties to achieve their objectives. Our different stakeholders or member types are –
Erth™ Point Merchants – Objectives & Goals –
1. To make more sales – PRIMARY OBJECTIVE
2. Show they are supporting their local community.
3. Show they are living up to their environmental responsibility.
A Businessperson or manager has their own Merchant to manage and run. We need to help the Merchant reach these three goals in the simplest and easiest manner.
The Erth™ Ambassador’s role is to deliver to the Merchant their three objectives. This is best done by signing the Merchant up as a “Merchant” and not as an Erth™ Ambassador. The Merchant needs to manage their own business while benefitting from the Erth™ Point System, rather than divert time, energy, and resources away from their current business to focus on doing the job of an Erth™ Ambassador.
Erth™ Point ECO’s (Club, Church, or Charity) – Objectives & Goals –
1. To earn residual income from monetising their loyalty – PRIMARY OBJECTIVE
2. Support local Merchants, especially those owned by their Supporters.
3. Show they are living up to their environmental responsibility.
4. ECOs cannot be Erth Ambassadors.
The Erth™ Ambassador’s role is to deliver to the ECO their three objectives. This is best done by signing the ECO as an ECO and a “Merchant” (only if they already operate as a Merchant) and not as an Erth™ Ambassador. The ECO needs to run their own organisation while benefitting from the Erth™ Point System, rather than divert time, energy, and resources away from their current organisation to focus on doing the job of an Erth™ Ambassador.
Erth™ Ambassadors – Objectives & Goals –
1. To build their own residual income Merchant – PRIMARY OBJECTIVE
2. Help Merchants make more Sales.
3. Help Merchants get Customers to join the Erth Point System.
4. Help ECOs earn a residual income by monetising their loyalty.
5. Help ECOs get Supporters to join the Erth Point System.
6. Support their local community.
7. Help all parties to meet their environmental responsibilities.
The best way for an Erth™ Ambassador to reach their goals, is to be the best and most efficient Erth™ Ambassador they can be by helping Merchants, ECOs and other Erth™ Ambassadors to reach their PRIMARY OBJECTIVE.
The best way for an Erth™ Ambassador to reach their PRIMARY OBJECTIVE comes from being able to focus on being an Erth™ Ambassador, rather than having to try and be both an Erth™ Ambassador and manage another Merchant or ECO.
Erth™ Ambassadors helps Merchants and ECOs by installing the Erth™ Ambassador’s QR share code in as many places as possible within the Merchant or ECOs premises, websites and in communications, so more Supporters/Customers join the Erth Point System so all parties benefit.
If a Merchant wants to become an Erth™ Ambassador, they can do so. But this should not be the main objective of the Erth™ Ambassador.
1) Erth™ Ambassadors primary role is that of a HELPER –
a) To help Merchants make more sales.
b) To help Merchants recruit Customers to the Erth Point System.
c) To help Merchants meet their social and environmental obligations.
d) To help Causes such as Clubs, Churches, and Charities (ECOs) to earn a residual income.
e) To help ECOs to recruit their Supporters into the System.
f) To help ECOs recruit supporters that are Merchants.
g) To help other Erth™ Ambassadors to help and recruit all members.
h) To help Supporters to get a better deal and to earn Erth™ points.
i) To help all participants to repair the planet for the good of everyone.
2) This is a 5-WIN Scenario –
a) Supporters WIN
b) ECOs WIN
c) Merchants WIN
d) Planet Earth WINS, and
e) Erth™ Ambassadors WIN.
i) An Erth™ Ambassadors mission is to ensure all parties benefit from working together in a spirit of harmony for the benefit of everyone including Planet Earth.
3) Any member of the Erth Points Loyalty Program except a participating ECO is eligible to participate in the Erth Ambassador Program providing they are a registered Merchant using an ABN (Australian Business Number) or international equivalent registration which is accepted by ErthMarketing.
4) The Erth Ambassador program is designed to reward the Ambassadors for inspiring a Supporter, Merchant, ECO or ECO Supporter to become a member of and use the Erth Points System so that all parties benefit including planet earth.
5) An Erth Ambassador has their income capped at the equivalent of AUD$20,000 per week paid in Erth Points weekly at the prevailing market price on exchanges. Any Erth Points over this amount will go to the Rewards4Earth Foundation to help save the planet.
a) If the amount over the capped income becomes substantial the Ambassador can recommend charities or projects within the POLECER framework that the Ambassador would like to work with enabling the Ambassador to earn some kudos for the project.
6) Because of the advanced security that we use for all parties protection –
a) Please be aware that Ambassadors cannot use their own credit cards to pay for joining fees or marketing services for their clients as this may cause “red flags” to appear within the system in relation to AUSTRAC, APRA or some other regulatory body which may lead to an investigation of the transactions.
b) Please be aware that Ambassadors cannot use their device (phone, laptop, tablet, or computer) to sign up other members as the cyber-security software logs the IP address of devices and if used for multiple new member sign-on’s; the system might assume you are attempting to hack the system and may lock you out of the system.
i) Also, the new member must agree to the terms and conditions of the membership the Ambassador cannot do it on the members behalf, as this would void the agreement between the company and the member.
7) ECOs are of particular interest to Erth Ambassador’s because they have large numbers of Supporters which if they all join the program as Supporters of the ECO and planet earth. That enables the Erth Ambassador along with the ECO to possibly earn substantial income from their everyday shopping.
a) The ECO cannot join as an Erth Ambassador, this allows the Erth Ambassador to work with the ECO to ensure all their members join as Supporters and Merchants so the ECO can benefit from those members.
b) The Erth Ambassador can then join other ECOs in the program by using the original ECO as a referral. This could mean that the original ECO could also substantially increase their income from the efforts of the Erth Ambassador as more Merchants come into the Erth Point program from the new ECO’s Supporters.
8) Merchants are also of particular interest to Erth Ambassadors as they also have the potential to bring a lot of the Merchant’s customers into the Erth™ Point system enabling the Ambassador to earn from the Merchant’s customers or supporters that shop at that Merchant and any other Merchant where Erth Points can be earned.
9) The Erth Ambassadors network via Erth Ambassadors Pty Ltd receives Erth Points from every transaction and then pays those Erth Points to the relevant Erth Ambassadors that are entitled to be rewarded as being part of either the Merchant or the Supporter (Customer) side of the transaction or from both sides depending on the network genealogy in their six-level network.
10) Erth Ambassadors can earn Erth Points when an Erth Point Supporter earns Erth Points at an Erth Points Merchant from within their 6-level network from either having –
a) the Supporter within their network or
b) the Merchant within their network or
c) both the Supporter and the Merchant in their Network.
11) Erth Ambassadors Pty Ltd share of the Erth Points is calculated as follows –
a) Erth Marketing receives minimum 3% of the qualifying transaction as a marketing fee
b) 20% of the marketing fee is retained by Erth Marketing to run the business,
c) 80% of the marketing fee is used to purchase Erth Points via an exchange at the lowest available price.
d) From Erth Points purchased they are distributed as follows –
i) 30% goes to the Supporter
ii) 30% goes to the Supporters Nominated ECO
iii) 30% goes to the Rewards4Earth Foundation
iv) 10% goes to the Erth Ambassadors Network
e) From the 10% that goes to the Erth Ambassador Network that is split equally between the Supporter side of the Transaction and the Merchant side of the transaction. This is to ensure that the Ambassadors earn from all transactions including all large Merchants where Erth Points can be earned such as Coles, Woolworths, Bunnings, Ampol Etc. Erth Ambassadors earn –
i) where supporters from within their network are involved giving Ambassadors the incentive to sign up as many ECOs and their Supporters as possible.
ii) As well as ensure that it gives Ambassadors incentives to sign up as many Merchants as possible so that the Ambassador is rewarded from every transaction where one of the Merchants from within their network is involved.
iii) From the 10% gifted to the Erth Ambassador Network the Commission is split between the levels as per the attached diagram. This can be changed at any time without notice.
12) When registering a new member of any sort, the Ambassador must use their referral code to ensure the new member is in their network to enable the Ambassador to receive any Erth Points rewards via the six-level network.
a) If a ECO, Supporter, Ambassador or Merchant does not enter the Ambassador’s referral code at the time of their registration and has already submitted their registration for processing, then they cannot go back through their registration to enter your unique referral code. You accept you will be solely responsible for ensuring the Merchant uses your unique referral code when registering for the Erth Points Loyalty Program.
b) Any member has the right to choose which Erth Ambassador network, if any they want to enrol or join with, and that member’s decision is final, the company will not try and persuade or influence members to join one network over another.
13) Ambassadors who cancel their original membership with the Erth Point program and join again with any other Erth Ambassador as a new Erth Ambassador will not receive any future commissions earned from the original Erth Ambassador network.
a) The original network will continue to operate as normal so that any Ambassadors within the network will keep receiving any Erth Points the same as before the Ambassador cancelled their agreement less any Erth Points from the cancelled membership.
b) The Ambassador that cancelled their Ambassadorship will forfeit all future income from the original network including their own direct Level-1 members and all other levels that are part of that network from the time of cancellation.
c) In simple terms, the Ambassador can cancel their own membership, but they cannot take any of their 6-level network with them. Members of the old network would have to cancel their existing memberships and join under the new network. If members do this, that is not something we recommend nor is it something we can stop. It would mean paying a new fee which acts as a deterrent is all we can do.
d) The Ambassador can decide which network they want to be part of, and that Ambassador will forfeit any future commissions if that membership is cancelled. The member controls their own membership and what Erth Ambassador network they want to join or cancel with, no negotiation will be entered into regarding this issue.
14) Merchants, Supporters and ECOs can also cancel their membership and decide to join under a different network and the Ambassadors within the old network will no longer receive any future income from that Member.
a) The old network will however continue earning from the remaining network as it is only that one member that is cancelling their membership and they cannot cancel any other memberships within the network.
15) Erth Ambassadors are paid a percentage of the sale price of other items such as training courses or other products purchased by any Erth Points System members within their network as set out in the Erth Ambassador website or any changes to the terms and conditions of the Erth Ambassador network.
16) Erth Ambassador will only be rewarded for signing up Merchants. Erth Ambassadors accept they will only receive their rewards when the Merchant has paid their establishment fee and/or paid for their product or service and that money has cleared. Ambassadors will not receive any reward prior to the fees being paid and cleared.
17) Erth Ambassadors accept we will not reward them or be held responsible or liable for any loss if they entered into an understanding or a verbal or written agreement with any potential Merchant, Ambassador, Supporter or ECO for them to use the Erth Ambassador’s unique referral code and they have not upheld their end of the agreement and they joined through another Erth Ambassador.
18) You accept we may at our sole discretion, pass on any suspicious or illegal activities or behaviours to the appropriate authorities.
19) You also accept we reserve the right to suspend or freeze your Erth Point digital wallet for any reason if we reasonably believe you are abusing your privilege to be participating as an Erth Ambassador or doing anything illegal which can impact the Erth Point system.

1) As we are providing funding for ECOs based on recommendations from their Supporters and the Supporters Spending, we must ensure we comply with Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Know Your Client and Anti-Terrorism Funding (ATF) legislation both nationally and internationally.
a) It is at Reward4Earth’s total discretion as to which ECO it accepts as a beneficiary and which one it rejects as a beneficiary regardless of any standing they have as aN ECO with any regulatory bodies.
i) A ECO cannot be an Erth Ambassador.
b) It is important to note that although Supporters nominate an ECO that they would like to support, the money comes from ErthMarketing Pty Ltd and as such is a donation from our business to the nominated ECO and as such we reserve the right as to how much we will donate to any ECO organisation, the frequency at which we donate or whether we will continue to donate any money to any ECO.
c) We will do our best to ensure that the nominated ECO receives funds nominated by supporters providing that the proceeds are used for their intended purpose and not misappropriated in any way.
d) Once we reach certain funding milestones, we may communicate with a ECO and ask for details as to what the aims and goals of the ECO are and how we can assist them with reaching these goals. This may include asking for business plans or goals and cashflows so that we can ensure we help at the correct times and that the ECO is operating within its charter and money is going to its intended purpose.
e) We also need to ensure that the Erth Points or money donated is reaching the correct outcome as we need to comply with AML, KYC, and ATF legislation and that includes ensuring that the money is not going to fund the Director’s, shareholders or managements extravagant lifestyle or is misappropriated in any way.
2) The first part of complying with legislation is identification of the ECO and that means registering the ECO and from there we do further probity checks to ensure compliance with all legislation.
a) Some ECOs also act as a Merchant, many clubs sell products and services as do charities. If the ECOs Supporters register as VIP Supporters of that ECO, the ECO can send them FREE weekly special offers for their or any other Merchant and the Supporter will receive Erth Points as will the ECO.
3) To successfully register as a ECO member of the Erth Point Program. ECOs will be required to complete the Erth points Loyalty Program application form, provide their business details, and we will verify their information.
a) Registering as a ECO is only the first step and does not mean the organisation will automatically become a ECO or beneficiary of the Erth Point system as we need to do probity checks and we will notify the applicant in writing as to whether their organisation has been successful or not.
4) Organisations can download and install the Erth Points BIZ App at any time. You understand and accept the Erth Points BIZ App will not activate until the Merchant’s details have been successfully verified by us. A further communication will be sent notifying the applicant as to whether their organisation has been successful in achieving ECO status.
a) If their organisation has been successful in becoming an ECO they will need to upload their logo so that any supporter can nominate that ECO as their preferred beneficiary, which the Supporter can change at any time at their total discretion.
5) When an organisation registers as a ECO, their organisation will not be bound to any fixed term or periodic contracts with us.
6) The organisation may, at their sole discretion, deactivate and delete their Erth Point ECO account at any time and free of charge.
a) Upon deactivation and deletion of their Erth Point ECO account, all rights and licences granted to them as a member of the Erth Points Loyalty Program will cease immediately.
b) Any money or Erth Points owed or held by the ECO will be lost at the time the account is closed, deactivated, or cancelled and no money or Erth points will be owed to the ECO.
c) To the fullest extent permitted by law, we will not be held responsible or liable for any losses they may occur if they choose to deactivate and delete their Erth Point ECO account.
7) Transaction Monitoring. By registering a Payment Terminal(s) in connection with our REACTS transaction monitoring, the Merchant authorizes ErthMarketing Pty Ltd and/or associated entities to share their transaction information with any other entities needed to track transactions between their Merchant and any Erth Point Supporter.
a) The Merchant authorizes us to monitor transactions on their registered terminals to identify qualifying purchases to determine whether their Merchant made transactions linked to any supporters payment cards. They further authorise Eftpos Australia, Mastercard, Visa or any other associated financial institution to share such transaction details with ErthMarketing Pty Ltd and/or associated entities to enable us to gain the needed transaction information to gift Erth Points and to assist Merchants to target offers that may be of interest to our Supporter Base to assist your Merchant to make more sales.
i) They may opt-out of REACTS and transaction monitoring on the payment terminals(s) you have registered by contacting ErthMarketing Pty Ltd directly, in writing or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
ii) If they opt-out of REACTS transaction monitoring they understand that this will mean they, their supporters, the Supporters nominated ECO, and the planet will not get any Erth Points and that by opting-out they are in effect stopping the Erth Point System from operating using REACTS.
iii) By opting-out they understand that the only way to be part of the Erth Point System will be by doing manual transactions for Cash or direct deposit transactions via the Erth Point BIZ App.
iv) The Merchant understands that our Supporters will be notified via their Supporter App that the Supporter, the Supporters nominated ECO, and the Planet did not receive any Erth Points.
b) We do not share personal information or specific information about any ECO, Merchant or supporter/customer or any of the Credit/Debit cards with any Merchant and only provide general data to Merchants to help them create campaigns to get more sales.
c) We do not take any money from the REACTS transaction that we monitor. All REACTS fees must be paid in advance to ErthMarketing to use the REACT pr API marketing systems.
8) VIP Supporters (Customers) can be sent FREE push notifications, or Special Offers by Merchants or ECOs. A nominated ECO is totally separate from becoming a VIP Customer or VIP Supporter of an ECO.
a) Becoming a VIP Supporter of an ECO or Merchant only enables the Supporter to receive special offers from that ECO or Merchant and does not change the ECO Beneficiary.
b) Supporters can only nominate one ECO to be their Beneficiary but can be VIP’s to as many ECOs and/or Merchants as they desire.
c) To become a VIP Supporter of a ECO, the Supporter must purchase from that ECO or nominate that they want to become a VIP Supporter of that ECO.
d) You understand and acknowledge that the Supporter can decide not to remain a VIP Supporter of any ECO, Merchant or Erth Ambassador by “Opting Out” or can vary the frequency that they want to receive the push notifications at their total discretion.
e) The Supporter can be a VIP Supporter of as many ECOs, Merchants, or Erth Ambassadors as they desire and there is no exclusivity based on location or ECO type or Merchant type.
f) A Supporter can only nominate one ECO to be their Beneficiary at a time, however they can change that beneficiary as many times or as often as they desire.
g) An Erth Ambassador, Merchant or ECO can organise to work with any other organisation for them to send special offers that a Merchant or ECO has to offer. This has the effect of cross marketing and will benefit all parties including the Supporter, the ECO, the Merchant, the Erth Ambassadors, and Planet Earth.
h) ErthMarketing reserves the right to stop any Merchant or ECO from using the push notifications if this service is abused or not in the best interest of the customers or the planet or ECOs.
i) Erth Ambassadors can have their network join their VIP system so that they can send all their network updates via their Supporter App.
j) A Merchant or ECO can only send push notifications to their VIP customers at a maximum frequency of once per week. This is to ensure that the Supporter is not receiving too many notifications which would prompt Supporters to Opt-Out of the notification system which they are legally entitled to do at any time.
i) We have options such as fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, yearly for Supporters to select to assist ECOs and Merchants reduce the number of Opt-outs by Supporters.
9) Through the Erth Points Biz App Merchants or ECOs can purchase REACTS Advertising and Marketing services or Erth Points, these services are only available to Merchants that have ABNs in Australia or the corresponding identifications in other countries.
REACTS Advertising and Marketing Services
Have an establishment and joining fee price of AUD$200.00 +GST for a total of $220.
1) Included in the $220 establishment fee –
a) $50 worth or REACTS marketing services and
b) $50 worth of Erth Points at market price.
c) $100 also goes to the Erth Ambassador system to reward salespeople and this may be paid in either AUD$ or Erth Points.
2) The minimum top-up amount is $50 for the REACTS marketing system.
3) The minimum top-up amount for Erth Points is $50
4) If as an example the Merchant has a balance of $50 for pre-paid REACTS marketing and a customer spends $100 where the Merchant has agreed to pay 4% of the sale price, then the Merchant would have a total fee deducted from their REACTS balance equal to 4% of $50 which is $2 so the new balance would be $48.
i) Once the REACTS balance reaches $20 or below the Merchant will have to top up their balance otherwise REACTS services for Erth Points will be withdrawn.
ii) All customers that go into a Merchant where they previously earned Erth Points will be notified that they did not receive any Erth Points as per normal to comply with our full disclosure principles if the balance of the Merchants goes below $10 or the Merchant stops being part of the Erth Point system or stops gifting Erth Points for any reason.
b) These fees can be changed at any time without notice.
5) A Merchant or ECO can also purchase Erth Points so that they can use them to purchase goods and/or services from other Merchants or gift them to Supporters as a special incentive, or for transactions that do not occur on the payment gateway system. The Merchant can purchase them using the BIZ App “TRADE Erth” tab, the Merchant can BUY Erth points for their own purposes as they require them.
6) All transactions are conducted in Australian Dollars – $ AUD. Using any other currency will attract an exchange rate which will be added to the cost of the points. How this is calculated from any other currency is subject to the variances of the free market, banks, and other methods of currency exchange calculations.
7) We only work electronically and do not SHIP any products only via email or internet services.
8) GST will be added to all prices where applicable. If you are buying internationally you may need to pay local taxes in your jurisdiction.
10) It is important to note that neither the Merchant nor the supporter gifts or donates any Erth Points or money to any ECO using REACTS or the BIZ App and it is only a nomination by the Supporter to ErthMarketing that influences ErthMarketing as to where it will gift money. Having said that we endeavour to gift money to where the supporter nominates and will only stop or reduce the proceeds to the ECO if it can be shown that the ECO is squandering, misappropriating, or is receiving funds in excess of the ECO’s needs.
a) Any Supporter or organisation can directly donate their Points to an ECO without REACTS and that is a decision for that person or organisation.
b) Gifting of Erth Points directly from the Supporter App to the ECOs BIZ App is done without REACTS and no other parties receive any percentage of the Erth Points.

a) If the supporter pays in cash, by direct deposit or some other payment methodology, you understand that for the Merchant to gift Erth Points directly to the system and therefore the Supporter, the Merchant must use the BIZ App.
i) You understand that for a Merchant to gift Erth Points they must already have the Erth Points in their BIZ App as no credit is provided to Merchants.
b) You understand that Merchants can also use the BIZ App to gift extra points to Supporters over and above any points that were gifted through the payment gateway system derived from payments made using their registered terminals.
4) As an Erth Ambassador you understand that the Supporter can nominate any ECO as a Beneficiary and that it is ErthMarketing Pty Ltd that donates the money to that ECO and that is at our total discretion which can change at any time based on information that ECO provides or does not provide to us.

6) If the Erth Points BIZ App is used the same splits of fees will occur with the only difference being that Erth Marketing will receive its fees in Erth Points rather than in $AUD.
7) With cash or direct deposit transactions or any other payment methodology other than using REACTS, the Merchant understands that they will have to gift the points manually to their customers App’s using the Erth Point BIZ App. You understand that the Merchant will have to Buy Erth Points from through their BIZ App, via exchanges, or from any other entity that sells Erth Points.
8) You understand that the marketing fee is a PAY-per-SALE performance marketing system, and the CLICKS are FREE.
9) You understand that the Merchant can change their desired percentage that they will pay for REACTS marketing at any time above the Minimum 3% and may do so to attract more customers by notifying or not notifying their customers.
a) We will not be responsible or liable for the percentage amount you set for your customers or if you change that percentage amount.

a) The price of Erth Points will fluctuate due to the free market of supply and demand.
18) Erth Ambassadors understand that the fluctuation in value will not affect the cost to Merchants, as they only purchase marketing or Erth Points based upon a percentage of the sale price of their goods and or services.
a) As an example – if the Merchant sells an item for $50.00 and they agree to pay 4% marketing fee to Erth Marketing for delivering the sale, then that would be $2.00 worth of REACTS marketing payable by the Merchant which is deducted from their REACTS pre-paid marketing services balance.
b) The only difference will be that the customer and all other parties will receive varying amounts of Erth™ Points based on the market value of Erth Points at the time of the transaction.

21) To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not make any warranties, guarantees, opinions, advice, forecast, speculate, or suggest how the value of Erth Points will behave in a free market determined by supply and demand. We will not be responsible or liable for how Erth Points behave in the free market (their fluctuation or market behaviour).
22) Merchants and or ECOs understand that if they stop gifting Erth Points we need to inform the Customer that they did not receive any Erth Points from that transaction.
23) Gifting points directly can be done via the Erth Points Supporter App and all Erth points gifted will go to the recipient less any administration charges.
a) Erth Point transfers may come under the scrutiny of AUSTRAC, the local tax office, or any other regulatory body.

2. As it is ErthMarketing that is paying, donating, or gifting the Erth Points or money to the ECO as a donation to the ECO then ErthMarketing should be entitled to the same treatment as any sponsor paying similar amounts to the ECO.
3. The Erth Ambassador understands that it will explain that ECOs agree that they will treat ErthMarketing the same as any sponsor and promote Erth Points in the same manner it would promote the brand of any other sponsor that pays a similar amount of money.
a. If as an example the naming rights sponsor of a football club (ECO) pays to the club $1,000,000 per year than if ErthMarketing pays $1,000,000 (In local currency or Erth Points) or more to the football club (ECO) then Erth Points will be given identical benefits and marketing rights to any other sponsor paying similar amounts of money.
b. ErthMarketing may agree to have second tier sponsorship benefits to assist that ECO at ErthMarketing’s discretion.

1) All Intellectual Property (IP) rights in Erth Points BIZ App are either owned or controlled by Rewards4Earth Pty Ltd or its affiliates or has third-party licensing to use its content.
4) We will be solely responsible for ensuring there are enough Erth Points in the ecosystem to support all qualifying transactions worldwide. We will do this by releasing Erth Points into a rising free market when required and will not release Erth Points below previous market highs in a ratchet type system unless there is an emphatic reason to do so to ensure the integrity of the Erth Point system. This means the supply of Erth Points will be available to meet the free-market demand to ensure the price of Erth Points does not reach an unsustainable level where the use of them in small transactions becomes unworkable.
5) Ensuring there are enough Erth Points in the ecosystem using the ratchet system also prevents Erth Points from being released into a decreasing free market.
