You will be assisting our clients within United States, the assistance to be provided will include: online communication regarding shipping and payments, payment collections and currency conversions, managing data and correspondence, reporting to supervisor.

– Communicating with Clients

The clients you will communicate with by email have agreed to make the purchase, no need to convince or sell, instead provide assistance with the completion of the purchase. No client will contact you during initial stage of employment; you will simply receive all of the transferring details, and payments, along with step by step guidance from your supervisor via email. All communication with buyers and supervisor is by email.

– Managing Data

Along with the payments received from buyers you will be receiving details of these sales. These details will include items sold, price, and buyer’s information.

Accounts & Transferring/Forwarding Procedures

There are three types of accounts that can be used to accept transfers from clients as well as your salary: personal, business, or corporate. Any of these can be set up just for the purpose of accepting the payments for purchases or an already active account can be used.

Personal Accounts – Current average volume is $20,000 of transfers per month. Typical transaction however will be around $2,000-$3,000 per transfer. Commission from each received and forwarded transfer is 5%, thus with current volume commission will equal $1,000 per month.

Business Accounts – These can be setup easily at large banks that offer easy business account setups. Current average volume of transfers to business accounts is around $60,000 per month. With 5% commission that will be $3,000 worth of commission per month.

Corporate Accounts – Much more complicated to setup, unless you already have a corporate account. Current average volume of transfers to corporate accounts is around $100,000 per month. With 5% commission that will be $5,000 worth of commission per month.

– Forwarding of the Payments

Once you receive each payment you will be keeping 5% as commission and forwarding the rest to either the seller or other representative, whose information will be provided. It is crucial to complete forwarding of the payments in a time efficient manner. Forwarding of transfers will be done through either wire transferring, Western Union, or Money Gram, depending on the amount of the transaction. Transfers over $1,000 but under $10,000 will have to be forwarded in person through a nearby Western Union or Money Gram location. Transfers under $1,000 can be forwarded through Western Union or Money Gram online. Transfers of $10,000 and more can be forwarded as wire transfers online, in person, or through telephone banking.

    WHAT A SCAM!!!! Do people actually fall for this without any search on the company they want to work for? Email from people overseas and no phone numbers to contact them, and they don’t want to talk to you but they want to hire you for accounts payable/receivable!!!!! (aka MONEY MULE for fake checks). They use a real company names but no one knows who they are if you call the company HR department. And this damn G7PS website, may its owners burn in hell, operates freely as the connection for these nigerian or whatever they are scam artist to look real. G7PS.com sells fake printers. hello people!! a $200 INKJET printer can not print a real bank check. Only $2000 LASER printer can do this. How can the FBI let this site operate? It’s putting U.S. citizens behind bars for becoming money mules yet it keeps letting this f**king site still operate. LETS STOP THE MADNESS PEOPLE.
