4aKid agents can earn income from three ways. 

Reseller program for agents

You purchase 4aKid products at less 20% and resell the products to your customer at the recommended selling price. The difference of the 20% is your profit to keep.

 Extra incentive program

If you sell R10 000 or more over a 6-month consecutive period, you will qualify for an extra 10% discount, meaning that you will get a total discount of 30% of all purchases.

Selling online or on social media

If you are selling online and/or only on social media, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat etc, then you do not have to purchase a starter kit. You will need an existing Facebook business page or group or other social media. We do not accept personal Facebook profiles as a method of social media marketing. 

Referral program

You can introduce new agents to 4aKid and have up to 25 agents working as part of your team. You will earn 5% of these agent’s purchases providing you are an active agent and leading your team. Agents in the 2nd sub-agent structure can only have 10 agents under them with no further sub-agents below them. 

Affiliate referral program

As a registered 4aKid agent, you qualify for the affiliate referral program.
