I just got the affiliate wp mlm add-on, but I’m not sure how to set it up correctly according these characteristics:
3 referral levels
Direct referral – 10% commission rate
Level 1 – 7.5% commission rate
Level 2 – 5% commission rate
Level 3 – 2.5% % commission rate
Next levels of the matrix – Don’t generate commission.
Every upline parent affiliate must receive the corresponding level commission for all the next purchases a sub-affiliate makes.
I configured the plugin as follow:
Enable For All Affiliates? -> Yes
Enable Lifetime Referral Rates -> No. Site default
Sync Lifetime Affiliate -> Referrer as lifetime affiliate (Actually I don’t understand the difference between all the options I can choose here)
Default affiliate: 0
Upline Basis: Referrer. Should Indirect Referrals be awarded to the Referrer or the Parent? What “awarded” does mean? The selected option will receive the commission and the referred user will be placed below him although it is a indirect referral?
Forced Matrix -> No
Initial Width -> 0
Depth -> 3
Level 1 – 7.5%
Level 2 – 5%
Level 3 – 2.5%
Level 4 – 0
Thanks for your time. I’ll be waiting for your response.

It looks like you have everything setup correctly according to your desired configuration (Unlimited Width, a Depth of 3, with Forced Matrix disabled). The only thing that I would change is, to delete Level 4 from your Per-Level Rate settings. Since you’re structure has a Depth of 3, it will only allow 3 Levels of Sub Affiliates for each Parent Affiliate. So, Level 4 will not apply anyway.
You should keep the Upline Basis set to Parent (Default), to ensure that the Parent Affiliate that is connected to the Sub Affiliate receives the indirect commission. Actually, the Referrer (Direct Affiliate) and the Parent Affiliate are the same unless you enable Forced Matrix, and the person who referred the Sub Affiliate may not necessarily be the Parent Affiliate that the new Sub Affiliate is assigned to.
You will also want to keep the Referrer as Lifetime Affiliate setting as it is. This ensures that the person that referred the Sub Affiliate, receives Lifetime Commissions on that Sub Affiliate. Again, you would only consider using the Parent as Lifetime option if you have Forced Matrix Enabled and you want to give the Parent Affiliate Lifetime Commissions instead of the Referrer.

Thanks for the information. I appreciate your guidance.
I’d like to check if the plugin will work as follow according to the set up I made:
L0 referres L1
L1 referres L2
L2 makes a purchase every week
L1 gets the direct commission rate on every purchase L2 makes
L0 gets the indirect commission rate on every purchase L2 makes
Please let me know if I should change any option to get it done.

Sorry for the delay. Regarding the Lifetime Affiliate Syncing setting, the Referrer as Lifetime Affiliate option means that the affiliate who referred the new affiliate (The Direct Affiliate) will be set as the new affiliate’s Lifetime Affiliate.
If you want to allow the commissions to Spillover (In the case of a Forced Matrix structure), you should use Parent as Lifetime Affiliate. This will ensure that the Parent Affiliate that the new Sub Affiliate is assigned to, will be the one who receives the commissions for that affiliate’s purchases going forward.
