You can earn up to 40% commissions on every sale your recommendations generate. Each product has a different commission level. On average, the average commission earned by Plazah sellers is 23%. The more products you recommend, the greater your earnings potential.
How Does It Work?
Very simple. Download the Plazah app and apply to be a seller. Once approved:
- Select the product that you want to recommend
- Apply the discount that you want to provide. For example, if a product has a 40% maximum commission, you can elect to provide a 20% discount to the buyer, and you would make a 20% commission in the event of a sale.
- Send the product recommendation to your client/friend by email or SMS through the Plazah platform.
You can also create your own customized Plazah store with your favorite products, and promote your store on your social media channels, blog, website, etc. Alternatively, click on the links you’ll find on each product page to share through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Messenger or any other platform you like.
Will My Recommendations Really Result In Sales?
Yes they do. Word of mouth is the number 1 driver of product sales, particularly when the recommendation comes from an expert. In Plazah, close to 20% of the recommendations that Plazah sellers send to their clients/friends end up in a sale.
How Can I Sell Products In Plazah Below The Retail Price?
Plazah, like any other legitimate retailer, is subject to MAP (Minimum Advertised Price). However, the product recommendations that are sent through Plazah to your clients and friends do not constitute a public advertisement, since they are being communicated privately on a one to one basis through email or SMS. Because of this, it is possible to apply discounts and sell products below MSRP retail price, where both the buyer (lower price) and the seller (up to 40% commission) benefit.
Can I recommend using social media?
You can advertise your Plazah store and recommend products on your public channels. The only difference is that the discount will be deactivated. The links you include will not lead to a price below the product’s retail price.
How Can I Make Money With Plazah?

- Share product links on social media on your blog, website, email, SMS, Messenger, etc… When someone buys a product using that link, you get paid.
- Embed your Plazah Store in your website (if you have one).
- Invite other experts to join Plazah. You will make a 20% commission on any sale they generate.
Why Do Brands Work With Plazah If The Sales Are Below The Retail Price?
Fitness brands are delighted to be part of Plazah. Here are three big reasons:
- Plazah’s seller community is composed of professionals with significant influence over which products are sold.
- Once a product is sold, the information is passed on to the brand and it is the brand that is responsible for the shipping. Brands benefit from this “customer intelligence”, which they lack in the case of selling through other retailers and etailers.
- Brands are willing to sell at discounted prices, but as long as it is done in private channels. This is precisely what Plazah enables.

Our secure servers charge the buyer directly. When the product is sold, we automatically send the purchase order to the company who then ships the product directly to the client, and you will receive a secure payment directly on your bank account.
How Often Do I Get Paid For Sales?
We initiate the payment process right after the product has been shipped. It usually takes 2-3 days to show in your bank account, but it ultimately depends on your bank ( so it could be a bit more ).
