Project Description

I need a Wordpress Plugin that is able to track Multi-Level-Marketing commissions, also commonly called "Direct Sales". The overall concept is that our company provides a drink product. Our distributors will need to take customers to the website using a referral link, and the customer then signs up to be a distributor or makes a purchase. Part of the earnings from this sale will be paid to the distributor that referred them.

At that point, a referral plugin that already exists for free would work, but it's more complicated than that since it is MLM. The new customer that just signed up can then use his/her referral link and sign up new distributors who will make purchases. These new sales will create X% commissions to the person who brought them on to the team, and Y% commissions to the person that brought that person on to the team. It continues on up the "pyramid".

There will be one person at the top with branches beneath them. Each person will only be allowed to have 3 people under them. Once a person has referred three people with their referral link, then the next people they refer #4, #5, and so on, will go to a spot on the pyramid that the person that refers them chooses. Once someone is signed up using a referral link, rather than being placed directly into the pyramid, they will be placed in a waiting room until the person who referred them decides which leg and where to put them. Different legs will have different strengths, where some legs will create one commission percentage and the other legs will be different. This creates "strong legs" and "weak legs".

There are several different ways commissions will work. One way is through simply referring someone who signs up to become a distributor (mentioned above). Other ways are on recurring monthly commissions from an auto-ship program, moving up and down in commission rate depending on the volume the distributor and their entire team does, earnings bonuses for achieving milestones, etc. In other words, there are several things to track.

To see a completed detailed explanation of the commission rates, see the attached file. That is not our company, but the compensation plan is similar and will give you an idea of how it will work. As for the referral link, you can either create your own or just use the data created by an existing referral program and then manipulate the data.

The overall purpose of the plugin will be to allow the administrator to log in and see how much total commission from all different payout possibilities is owed to each distributor. The reporting needs to be detailed so if a distributor disputes their payout there is plenty of tracking to determine if it is correct. The individual customers also need to be able to see only their own commission structure and it would also be helpful if they could see a map of their downline and be able to place customers in it that are being held in the waiting room.
