The MLM Generation plan is based on profit sharing. Also called Gap Commission Plan, it works purely based on product selling and is tailor-made for companies that manufacture and sell consumable items. Every affiliate prompts their downline to generate more sales of products and they will be paid bonuses and incentives in return. As the referral system keeps improving and increasing, the member network will also increase. When a distributor sells a product, the volume is to be distributed towards up-lines, hence the name, Generation Plan.

How does the Generation MLM Plan work?

  • Generations are groups of downline members, each with a specific number of levels.
  • It varies with every company, but it is usually four or five tiers deep.
  • Assume that members of your downline up to level 5 are considered the first generation.
  • The second generation consists of levels 6 to 10, the third generation is levels 11 to 15, and so on.
  • The commission you receive for things sold by your first generation will now be the highest, say 10%.
  • And starting with the second generation, you'll be paid a lesser commission rate, say 7%.
  • From the third generation onwards, you will receive even lower commissions, say 5%, and so on.
  • The amount of downline levels in each generation, as well as the commission rates, are fixed by the company.
