There are 4 Different types of Plans in MLM.
- Binary MLM
- Forced matrix MLM
- Unilevel MLM
- Unlimited MLM
In Binary MLM, The Affiliate needs to complete the cycle to receive MLM commission. According to Binary Plan, an affiliate can have a maximum of 2 children under their MLM chain.
In the above image, you can see the binary plan setting, Max child is set as 2 and MLM type is set as Binary. So Affiliate needs to register 2 children to receive the MLM commission, If the Affiliate has only 1 child under them then also they did not get any MLM commission Affiliate needs to register 2 children under them to receive MLM commission.
Forced Matrix MLM:-
In forced Matrix, you can set the Depth that How many levels can MLM chain has and can also set the maximum no of children that each user can have. Users start getting commission once they completed the chain according to the setting done by Admin.
As you can see in the Above Image Affiliate is Forced to register a number of users set by the admin.
The number of children is set as 3. So to receive the commission affiliates have to complete the chain and for that, they need to register 3 children under them.
As the name Defines itself that Affiliate is Forced to register a number of user-entered by the admin to start earning MLM commission.
If the Affiliate has 2 children under them then also Affiliate is not going to receive the MLM commission, To complete the chain there should be 3 users under an Affiliate.
In the unilevel matrix, you can set the Depth that how many levels can MLM chain have. There can be ‘N’ number of children’s a user can have, but an Affiliate can have only one child under their affiliate chain.
As you can see in the above image one Affiliate can have only one child under them.
So if B, C register using A’s affiliate link then B came under A and C came under B.
If any new user came through using A’s link then it will come under affiliate C.
In Unlimited commission, a user can have an unlimited number of users under their affiliate chain, It is totally different from another plan like in Binary plan an affiliate can have a maximum of 2 children and the user will receive a commission, In a forced matrix user are forced to register the number of affiliates enter by admin after that affiliate is going to receive MLM commission, In Unilevel one Affiliate can have a single child under their affiliate chain
But in the Unlimited plan, there is no validation if the admin sets the maximum number of children an affiliate can have as 200 so that does not mean affiliates have to register 200 users under them then they are eligible to receive MLM commission. If the Affiliate has only one child under their MLM chain then also affiliate will receive MLM commission as per the setting done by admin.
As shown in the above Image maximum child is set as 200 and the MLM plan is set as unlimited, according to the setting an affiliate has a maximum of 200 children and the affiliate will receive a commission even if the affiliate has only 1 child under their affiliate chain.
