Everyone knows that it is prohibited to generate direct selling profits simply by recruiting members; otherwise this may become degenerated multi-level marketing. However, a pyramid scheme company packages membership recruitment profits in many ways. For example, distributors may be required to buy multiple sets of products while only one set of the products will suffice and additional purchases do not bring any benefit.

Since the focus is not on products, there is a special term called "the emptiness of products" to describe this phenomenon.
