The UniLevel Comp Plan and How It Works


The Unilevel Comp Plan is a plan with unlimited width. When I say that, realize that every single person that you introduce to the club will be on your first level.

Due to the fact that everybody you sponsor is on your frontline (first level), there is no spillover.



Most compensation plans pay you a percentage of your downline up to a certain level. Usually, this level is between 5 and 10.

A Unilevel comp plan pays down to the 5th level.  For example:

  • On the 1st level, you may get 35% of the volume of what your direct downline brings in.
  • You may get 25% of what your second level brings in.
  • You may get 20% of what your third level brings in
  • Then get 15% of what you're fourth level brings in
  • Then get 10% of what you're fifth level brings in.

see in example below
