    Parent
    Level 1 Initial commission = $5.00
    AffiliateWP Recurring Rate = $5.00

    When recurring event happens Parent receive an additional $5.00 until Level 1 cancels

    AffiliateWP MLM Depth = 5

    AffiliateWP MLM Per level rates are as follows:
    1.$5.00 level 1 direct affiliate
    2.$4.00 level 2 one below direct
    3.$3.00 level 3 two below direct
    4.$2.00 level 4 third below direct
    5.$1.00 level 5 fourth below direct

    Total commission expected = $15.00 from this leg in downline

    Problem encountered: When the 2nd level member joins, the parent above receives $5.00 and the Level 1 affiliate also gets $5.00. Parent should receive $4.00, not $5.00.

    Previously configured as such:

    Level 1 Initial commission = $5.00
    AffiliateWP Recurring Rate = $5.00

    AffiliateWP MLM Depth = 5

    AffiliateWP MLM utilizing 4 Per level rates are as follows:
    1.$4.00 level 1 direct affiliate
    2.$3.00 level 2 one below direct
    3.$2.00 level 3 two below direct
    4.$1.00 level 4 third below direct

    Problem encountered: Recurring referrals generate the following:

    Parent receives the following

    Level 1 = $4.00
    Level 2 = $3.00
    Level 3 = $2.00
    Level 4 = $1.00
    Level 5 = $0.00

    Parent receives $10 total, instead of $15.00.

    What setting must I change to deliver these results:

    Initial & recurring referrals paying the same commissions with depth of 5 levels

    Level 1 = $5.00
    Level 2 = $4.00
    Level 3 = $3.00
    Level 4 = $2.00
    Level 5 = $1.00

    Sorry for the delayed response on this, I didn’t receive the notification for your post.

    First, let me explain that each Level represents a Level of Sub Affiliates and their relationship to their Parent Affiliate. So, if you have your Depth set to 5, it means you will allow each Parent Affiliate (Level 0) to have 5 Levels of Sub Affiliates below them.

    So, if you intend to pay $5 to the affiliate who referred the sale (A Direct Referral) you set that in Affiliates > Settings > General. Then, if you want each Parent Affiliate to receive a $4 Indirect Referral commission when someone below them refers a sale, you would set Level 1 to $4.

    I recommend changing your Depth to 4 and setting your rates as such:

    Level 0 = $5.00 [Direct]
    Level 1 = $4.00 [Indirect]
    Level 2 = $3.00 [Indirect]
    Level 3 = $2.00 [Indirect]
    Level 4 = $1.00 [Indirect]

    And you should disable the Recurring Rate if you are paying the same amount for each Recurring Referral Commission. The Per-Level Rates will apply automatically for each Recurring Referral.

    There’s more of an explanation about this in the documentation as well, if you need more in-depth information.

    Let me know if you need further assistance with this.
