Commission Levels Add-on

Commission levels are useful for multi-level marketing, sometimes referred to as network or pyramid marketing.

The idea is that the referring affiliate gets X % commission, but you can also pay Y % to X's ancestor, and Z % to the Y's ancestor and so on. We don't recommend doing too many levels. Once you get past 5-10 levels you could run into performance issues.

To use levels, you'll first need to head to Easy Affiliate > Add-ons and install and activate the Commission Levels add-on.

When activated it adds new Commission Levels settings in the following places:

Settings > Commissions: This is where you can define your global levels (applies to all affiliates unless overridden by one of the settings below).

Global commission levels

User Profile > Commissions Override: If you edit an affiliate's WP User Profile directly, you can override the global levels (above). This might be useful if you want to pay a certain affiliate more or less % on each sale than all other affiliates.

Commission Rules Add-on: If you've enabled our Commission Rules add-on, then you can also override the global levels above on each Rule. This might be useful if you want to pay different commissions based on which Product was purchased for example.
