Hello,

Can you please tell me if it's possible to have an MLM style business model for the affiliate program, under the following use-cases?


1. Affiliate#1 posts a banner that links to a Virtuemart product, Customer#1 clicks on the banner and purchases the product, Affiliate #1 gets paid commission. Then Customer#1 decides to join the affiliate program and is now Affliate#1-101. Now if Affiliate #1-101 generates sales through posting links with their own affliateID, they would get commission, and Affiliate#1 would also get commission. Traditional pyramid mlm model.

2. Affiliate#1 posts banner advertising the affiliate program membership registration (not a product per se). The intention is to encourage people to register beneath them in their MLM downline, and reap commission from any referred lower tiers sales.

Is this possible?

Thank you.
SJ

Hi,

That is the scope of the levels system but you have to define the levels. You can't set the system to generate commissions for all the levels of an affiliate.
If you define 3 levels and user A referred user B, user B referred user C, user C referred level D, user D referred used E, when E buys something, commissions will be generated for D, C and B ( first 3 levels ). User A will not get a commission.
So the system can't actually generate a MLM system ( which is illegal in a lot of countries ), but it's up to you how many levels you define.

One more quick question. Is there any way for a member/referrer to see their downline? or list of referred people who made purchases?

thank you

A referrer can see his affiliates in the reports ( "Affiliates List" ).
An affiliate can chose not to allow the referrer to see he registered ( see the affiliate parameters ).
