Q: Thanks for meeting with me today! What happened when you went shopping?

A: Yesterday I needed two things from Home Depot, a purple basil plant to match the purple-leafed plants on the front porch, and a sprinkler. I was combining both of those things in one — a purple plant and a basil plant. And Home Depot had them both on sale.

Q: OK and what happened after that?

A: Apparently all the Home Depot stores keep running out of sprinklers because everyone needs to buy a sprinkler because we haven’t had rain for 4 weeks so were’ re in a mini drought. I just don’t have the time to hold the hose for 20 minutes. They’re out of all their sprinklers. They have nozzles or faucet handles. I ‘m not gonna hold it for 20 minutes.

Q: OK and what have you found so far?

A: I’ve gone to lots of stores to look for these. Nobody has them. I searched for them in Google which said Target has them but they’re like $60 but it’s dinosaur blow-up toy/ sprinkler. I’m not spending that much.

So I found the one I wanted, and the basil, then I went to check out.

Well the basil could only be delivered to your house whereas the sprinkler could NOT be delivered and could only be picked up at the store.

Q: OK. Was there an extra fee for house delivery?

A: There was for one of them, unless you buy a certain amount. I only needed these two things. I browsed at some other things I might need but didn’t see them. They also weren’t deliverable in the way I need to have them delivered. So they’re on my “to buy” list.

Q: And does Amazon does that too sometimes?

A: Yes. Say you’re buying stuff on Amazon. Two things are in your cart but they don’t equal $25, so you have to buy more stuff but it has to be free shipping. Or you could pay for Amazon Prime which I don’t. It’s really frustrating and I don’t buy it, I just ignore it. I’m just like, “Forget it.”

Q: Only certain items area available for free shipping, even if you hit the $25 threshold?

A: Right. So I still want to buy the things I need but I cant’ find the right balance of $25 and free shipping, and they don’t ship plants, so no purple basil.

Q: You didn’t really abandon your cart then, if you saved them?

A: I saved them on Amazon but not on Home depot. Comparing prices — the sprinkler was cheaper at Home Depot but it’s easier to get at Home depot because it’s just not too far from where I live. And another thing is, Amazon keeps you logged in on the app. Home Depot product I can find in two seconds. I didn’t log in cause I don’t like to login.

Q: Over 30% of online shoppers will abandon their cart if they have to create another account. When you’re looking for dye-free stuff, you shop at Aldi’s?

A: I get dye-free stuff more on Amazon because since they took over Whole Foods, they’ve added a LOT of dye-free stuff.

Q: OK. Sounds great. I thought the phrase was: Whole Foods. Whole Paycheck, no?

A: It used to be like that but they give you discounts when you buy in bulk.

Q: Ah. Pulling a Sam’s Club, CostCo move, eh?

A: Without the membership fee, and without the wait. It’s not if you buy in bulk. It’s if you subscribe to receive a certain quantity at a certain frequency.

Q: Subscription as a revenue stream, eh?

A: Yes. Then it’s the cheapest for you to buy

Q: How did your buyer’s journey which is not yet completed make you feel?

A: Frustrated.


HOMEMAIDE helps you sell your style and buy the things that make you smile, seamlessly.

Any item you pass in your daily routine (purple basil, sprinkles (dye-free), sprinklers, contact lenses, pens, hens, iron supplement gummies, Omega-3, ice cream, cars,), any fun detour or side attraction you stop at while on a road trip (Wal-Mart, CostCo, Optometrist outlets, a petting zoo, Soft Serve Ice Cream, museums and their never-ending gift shops) — ALL you have to do is upload a picture or paused video screenshot of that to your existing social media sites and Homemaide will send you a commission for every purchase your friends make.

AND — they don’t have to buy a luxury car for you to earn a commission (but if they do, YOU will earn a commission from Homemaide on those larger purchases(!!!). Think about that for a second:

HOMEMAIDE helps you sell your style and buy the things that make you smile, seamlessly. $18.9 Million Bugatti “La Voiture Noire” Is the Most Expensive New Car Ever Sold. A carbon-fiber one-off built for one valued customer, this 1479-hp machine pays tribute to the 110th anniversary of Bugatti with nods to the Type 57. https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-shows/geneva-auto-show/a26638740/bugatti-la-voiture-noire-most-expensive-new-car-for-sale/

That’s not a bad commission based on you posting pictures, videos, and other content on social media sites. If you’re wondering how you might get paid a commission for such a sale — or if your friends buy real estate near where they see a picture of you vacationing — you might be wondering: “how can I get a commission from a sale like that? I haven’t paid 7 levels of Realtor Board dues (City, County, State, Regional, National, and more) or car sales licensing board dues.” Fortunately, Homemaide doesn’t use over-regulated, Centrally-controlled fiat currencies who’ve been debased more than the ancient Roman Denari to give you your commission.
