Payout management with point system (PV) in MLM software

Payout management with point system (PV) in MLM software.

Bonus Volume (BV)/ Point Volume (PV)/Commission Value (CV) or any other point system can be named in any network marketing company in the market but what are those? Why is point value implemented at the first place? Are there any practical purpose for this or is just another gimmick?

Compensation plan can come in any form in MLM/network marketing industry with the purpose of motivating sales force to boost the sales and income. But there’s often a myth in PV and it seems to be difficult to understand even for business owners, here we’ll explain the core principle of point system associated with product and why is necessary for MLM.

Speaking about MLM, compensation plan structured are often universally implemented in each company regardless of product price being sold. But there’s one problem with it, product margin and costing is different, how can it be implemented on a universal plan?

For example, a direct sponsor rewards of 50% is promised as rewards for each sale. The main question should be, 50% of what? Let’s look at the comparison table below:

ProductAB
Selling Price (MYR)100100
Product Cost (MYR)3060
Commissions (MYR)
50% on Selling Price
5050
Company Profit/Loss (MYR)20-10

Product costing for the same product price is affecting the company P&L badly. There goes the introduction of point system:

ProductAB
Selling Price (MYR)100100
Product Cost (MYR)3060
Point Volume (PV)10040
Commissions (MYR)
50% on PV
5020
Company Profit/Loss (MYR)2020

Assume other variables remain constant, implementation of product point is flexible to fit into the universal compensation plan structure without hurting the company’s P&L.
