What is Forced Matrix?

Affiliate Manager allows you to create a custom commission structure with multiple levels and a forced matrix option. You can have up to 10 commission levels and a maximum matrix width of 5 members.

What is a Forced Matrix System?
A Forced Matrix is a system where there is a limit to the number of referrals any affiliate member can refer.

For example, if you set the matrix width to be 3, an affiliate member (Affiliate 1) can refer a maximum number of 3 people directly below him. Any future referrals will automatically be placed below one of the 3 members he referred right below him, forcing the matrix to fill up, up to the number of commission levels you have specified.

Setting Up Forced Matrix
To enable forced matrix, you must first have a forced matrix license. If you don't have one, please purchase one.
To configure it, go to Settings > Global Configuration > Marketing > Network Marketing
On this tab, you can set the following:
Enable Forced Matrix Downline - enable the forced matrix option.
Forced Matrix Width - the maximum number of affiliates allowed to be directly under any user
Forced Matrix Spillover - Once a matrix downline is filled, what the system will do on new affiliates (spillover)
Forced Matrix ID for Spillover - If you set the spillover to specific affiliate, enter the affiliate's member ID here.

* CAUTION: The system only enforces the matrix upon affiliate registration. It does not enforce it if you add affiliates manually.
