The Stairstep Breakaway plan, also known as stair step breakaway or simply stairstep plan, is one of the oldest compensation plans still in use. With Stairstep plan, you can build as wide as you want for your front line of distributors. You can easily avail the Fast, Secure and reliable MLM software solutions for all MLM Breakaway Compensation Plans. Basically, it starts like an MLM Unilevel Plan where there are an unlimited number of front line positions. It has a percentage assigned to each level progressively deeper. As your team grows, there are usually group volume requirements to achieving status. Once your team grows big enough, that team will "Break Away" and you will earn a much smaller commission on the whole group instead of maxing out based on the number of levels deep you are.
With each step/rank, you are allocated an amount lower price or refund you generate on your buys from the company. For example, the first stage (sales professional level) may generate a 20% discount, the second stage (Distributor), will generate a 25% discount, the third stage (Supervisor) a 30% discount, the fourth stage (Manager) a 35% discount and the fifth stage (National Director) generates a 40% discount. As you improve up the steps and get marketing, your company amount discount rates or discount rates improve.
Once they have achieved Distributor, Supervisor, Manager or National Director title status, they need to maintain the status (or higher) for 3 consecutive months to earn a once-off “TITLE BONUS”. Should they slip down a level, and later are promoted again, they will start again and need to maintain the level for 3 full consecutive months to qualify for the once-off title bonus.
