The Forced Matrix Plan is a pyramidal structure arranged into a fixed number of width (row) and depth (column) that restricts the number of distributors you can sponsor on the first level. It is represented by the formula “width x depth”.

What Is Forced Matrix?

Forced Matrix is a compensation plan, in which the amount of people each person can have in their first level is limited. For example, a 7×8 group means seven people are on the first level and paying 8 levels deep. Each distributor can only sponsor a certain number of front-line distributors. Any additional distributors must be placed under another distributor.

Types of Commission In a Forced Matrix Plan

Direct Sponsor/Level Commission

Direct Sponsor Commission is also known as the Direct Referral Commission. The major benefit of this commission is that the member gets paid whenever he refers a new member.

Level Commission

The level commission is paid when a new member gets placed under your level. This commission is the total amount of the profits or bonus people earn by adding new members to the level. In our forced matrix MLM software, you can configure the compensation level to a certain width and height.

Matrix/Stage Commission

Matrix bonus or Stage bonus is the bonus amount given to the member for referring new members and filling their matrix with down line members. for instance, if the business plan is a 3x3 matrix system, the first level down-line should have 3 members, 9 members in the second level and 27 members in the third level.

What Are the Benefits Of Forced Matrix?

Forced Matrix, compared to other plans simplifies your total teamwork. In this matrix, we have to set commissions for each level. Forced matrix plan is positioned on a sequential left to right and top to the bottom pattern. In this plan, the member is not allowed to select his position and is only allowed to select the sponsor. The member will get a commission based on the level he is placed for a particular payout period.


How to Succeed in a Forced Matrix?

Limiting the number of front-line distributors causes a couple of important changes. First, there is less emphasis on recruiting large numbers of people. Rather, you can recruit a certain number to focus your efforts on helping your down-line sponsors more distributors. The Forced compensation plan encourages more teamwork than a uni-level compensation plan. The narrower and deeper the matrix is, the more this effect is felt. For example, a 3×10 matrix puts more emphasis on teamwork than a 6×6 matrix does.
