Maven is the first of its kind: a solution to empower people to earn money by recommending products and services to others. People who love to shop, can now monetize their skill in an easy, natural way. Designed to be fun and easy to use much like many popular social sites. Users create boards of products from "in-network" merchants. These boards can be shared via email, social networks such as Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook, as well as posted on the Maven Xchange, which is the public site. When people click through and buy a product from the retailer, the product recommender earns a commission.
