Multi-level Marketing (MLM) is a sales model that builds a sales force usually by having individuals sign-up and sell a product for commission. It is incentivized with additional bonuses and commissions for building a top-down network of sales people commonly referred to as a pyramid underneath them or by hitting tiered product sales goals. This business model typically consists of subscription-based items that promote a continuity billing model also known as automatic recurring billing. Having multiple payment processing solutions that are scalable to volatile spikes of growth is a key necessity that gives MLM businesses the best opportunities to capitalize on sales. Working with a merchant service provider that has great understanding of MLM businesses is paramount to achieving success.
