# Understanding teirs and Levels

SHORT VERSION:
Whoever A directly signs up he gets 2%
Whoever B Signs up hey gets 2% and A gets 1%
And whoever C signs up B gets 1% and A gets 1%
And so on…… 10 levels deep

LONG VERSION
We have a 2% payout how do I do it? My system now has the pay outs all wrong.
Affiliate A signs up Affiliate B. Affiliate A should get 2% 0.002 of what Affiliate B sells.

When Affiliate B signs up Affiliate C, Affiliate B should get 2% of what Affiliate C. sells.

Also can I have it that we pay 2% of whatever Affiliate B sells and when Affiliate B signs up Affiliate C and when they sell B gets 2% and A gets 1%?

Thanks and I am using EDD.

1. Hi David,

I’ll explain with an example based on the following:

– A general 30% commission is granted to affiliates who directly refer a purchase. This is set under Affiliates > Settings.

– Affiliates in the upline should get 2% commissions on purchases referred by affiliates directly below them. This is set under Affiliates > Tiers > Level Rates > Level 1 where the value 0.02 would be set.

– Those affiliates who are 2nd level ancestors to an affiliate who refers a purchase should get 1%, under Affiliates > Tiers > Level Rates > Level 2 this would be reflected using the value 0.01.

Let’s take the structure you have proposed above, which I assume is: affiliate A has referred affiliate B, and B has referred affiliate C.

Taking into account the above, if affiliate C directly refers a purchase with a net sales amount of \$100, then:

– Affiliate C gets 30% of \$100 => \$30
– Affiliate B gets 2% of \$100 => \$2
– Affiliate A gets 1% of \$100 => \$1

I hope that helps to get a better understanding of how this works. You can take this any levels deep.
