What is MLM Compensation Plan?
MLM companies build their businesses on specific commission structures (popularly known as compensation plans) based on their profitability interests. An MLM compensation plan is the foundation on which MLM businesses are built. Multilevel marketing is popular for its broad range of compensation plans, each having unique properties of its own.
Marketing in an MLM business model indicates the selling part, and compensations are the rewards for a sale from Personal Sales Volume (PSV) or Group Sales Volume (GSV). Usually, compensations are provided as commissions or bonuses. Commissions are provided based on PSV and bonuses for GSV or group efforts.
Each type of MLM compensation plan and network marketing plan does have a unique compensation structure. However, an MLM company mostly has a hybrid compensation structure i.e. multiple plans are used. Thus the same commissions/bonuses can be seen in different plans.
There are many types of mlm plans, and these are supported in the Epixel compensation engine. We also support custom compensation plans as per the requirements of the direct sales company.
