The purpose of the party is to sell products directly to consumers, in a fun, social setting. Many representatives leverage social selling on Facebook Live, Instagram.

The attendees of a party serve as a source of future party hosts. As an incentive for hosting a party, the hostess receives a Hostess Reward. The Reward can be a discount on products, free products, or the ability to purchase exclusive Hostess Only products. The representative receives compensation on the retail sales from a party.

MLM Binary plan is one of the most popular in the industry and widely accepted in the world. In a Binary compensation plan, every member sponsors only two front-line members. If a member sponsors more than two members, the excess is placed at levels below the sponsoring member’s front-line (downline). Binary System MLM projects falls in niche category where the system will be dynamic and capping systems should be intact to avoid the overdrawn commission payout.

board matrix plan


Board Plan is also known as the Revolving Matrix Plan. In this plan a group of members work in a team (Board), consisting of a set number of members. When that number is reached, the Board splits into two sub-trees. The top one member promoted into the next higher board. In MLM terminology the company can set how many promotional board members to be introduced and how many members can be aboard.


MLM Matrix Plan also is known as a ladder Plan or Forced Matrix Plan. Members are organized in a width and depth and compensated when they achieve a set level. The MLM Company can set structure for members to qualify a particular level that maybe 3 in width and 5 in-depth. In other words, a distributor only can introduce 3 as his front-line and a member can earn compensation up to the 5th level.

Linear or Mono-line compensation plans are structured as a downward thread of distributors, one under the other, growing continually as new distributors join. This angle on the structure and the pitch tends to drive recruitment and growth. Most commonly, would be the display of Linear/Mono-line genealogy, with coded bonuses, rank-based infinity overrides, personally sponsored matching bonuses and global bonus pool distribution methods.

This type of multi-level marketing compensation plan is characterized by having representatives who are responsible for both personal and group sales volumes. Volume is created by recruiting and retailing products. Various discounts or rebates may be paid to group leaders and a group leader can be any representative with one or more downline recruits. Once predefined personal and/or group volumes are achieved, a representative moves up a step. This continues until the representative “breaks away” from their upline.


Uni-level Plan permits the affiliates to introduce newcomers in its front line. There are no restrictions for width- members can sponsor unlimited width under his/her front line and compensation distributed up to the limited depth.

The Disadvantages of Using Open Source MLM Software

The Hidden Costs and Challenges of Open Source Free Software

While open source software is often touted for being “free,” it’s important to understand the broader implications and potential hidden costs, especially in the context of MLM businesses.
Lack of Specialized Features for MLM

Generic Functionality:

  • Limited MLM Features: Open source software often lacks specialized features required for effective MLM management, such as complex commission calculations, downline tracking, and MLM-specific reporting tools.
  • Customization Challenges: Tailoring open source software to fit MLM-specific needs often requires extensive customization, which can be costly and time-consuming.
Security and Compliance Risks

Vulnerability to Security Breaches:

  • Weak Security Measures: Open source software may not always adhere to the highest security standards, making MLM businesses vulnerable to data breaches and cyber attacks.
  • Compliance Issues: Ensuring compliance with data protection laws and industry regulations can be more challenging, as free software may not be regularly updated to reflect the latest legal requirements.
Scalability and Performance Limitations

Difficulty in Scaling with Business Growth:

  • Performance Issues: As your MLM network grows, open source software may struggle to handle increased data and user numbers, leading to performance bottlenecks.
  • Lack of Scalability: The software might not be designed to scale up efficiently, necessitating a switch to more robust solutions as the business expands.
