So where does a 2-tier program fall? Almost every program that describes itself as 2-tier, does not require any fee to participate. Givenrepparttar definition of affiliate programs and our more detailed definition of MLM above, a 2-tier program does not comfortably fit in either category. So what is it?

Like MLM, you will be rewarded for introducing new sellers torepparttar 102417 program, usually by receiving a small percent of their commissions. Like an affiliate program, your profit is based onrepparttar 102418 sales you and your referrals generate as opposed to membership fees or referral bonuses.
