Matrix pay plans found in
MLM Or Network Marketing

Typical Matrix

The typical matix is limited in width on the first level to usually 2 positions although with some companies it can go much wider.


Usually it has a predefined depth (levels) of 5 to 12 with linear commissions. Matrix plans often use the phrase two who get two etc…

The problem is maybe the two you get will actually do nothing at all? Matrix plans only make up a small percentage of the total pay plans offered by different companies.

This type of pay plan has been on the decline as Binary and Unilevel pay plans increase in popularity. One of the reasons could be that many of these pay plans where tied to reverse matrix scams.

This was a way of guaranteeing you a downline, yet when the numbers where added up “they didn’t add up!”
