Your sponsors are managing to bring in 2, 3 or even 4 people a month to their team and you barely bring in one person in the first six month (if you last that long).
It may be better to consider filing by mail and receiving a paper check. There are plenty of check-cashing operations that will gladly cash a tax refund check for a small percentage charge.
