Cycle Pay

With Cycle Pay, the plan compares the volumes on the Left and Right. The higher volume (Strong Leg) subtracts, the lower volume (Weak Leg). The Associate receives a percentage of the remaining volume. This remaining volume becomes Carry Over Volume that rolls over into the next cycle.

In the next cycle, the process begins again. The Strong Leg subtracts the Weak Leg. The Carry-Over Volume from the last cycle then adds to the remaining volume. The Associate gets a percentage of this number.

The following Rule defines a cycle pay:

<Rule Description="Team Commission" Name="TC">
      <And>
        <MeetsRule Rule="A" />
      </And>
      <Result>
        <Payments>
          <Payment Pool="MasterPool" Bonus="Team Commission" Tag="" MetaData="">
            <Group>
              <CurrentAssociateGroup />
            </Group>
            <Source>
              <WeakLegVolumePay TreeVolume="BCV" PercentPay="15" WeakLegVolume="200" StrongLegVolume="400" TotalMaxVolume="133600" Comment="Lessor Leg" />
            </Source>
          </Payment>
        </Payments>
      </Result>
</Rule>

The most important element in this Rule is the following statement:

<WeakLegVolumePay TreeVolume="BCV" PercentPay="15" WeakLegVolume="200" StrongLegVolume="400" TotalMaxVolume="133600" Comment="Lessor Leg" />

With this statement, every time:

  • Weak Leg earns 200 volume
  • Strong Leg earns 400 volume

You get 15 percent of the remaining volume.

With Cycle Pay, take the Weak Leg volume and subtract it from the Strong Leg volume. This leaves you with 200 remaining volumes. Because the Associate gets 15 percent of that volume, they will earn 30 for the cycle. The remaining 200 becomes Carry Over Volume.

In the next cycle, the Strong Leg earns 500, and the Weak Leg earns 200. 200 subtracts from 500, leaving 300. Now the Carry Over Volume (200) adds in, resulting in 500 volume. The Associate gets 15 percent of this, so they receive 75.
