MLM - Multi Level Marketing Setup

Multi-level marketing is a popular way to incentivize affiliates to recruit other affiliates by giving them additional credit for any purchases that their sub-affiliates generate.

LeadDyno supports Multi-Level affiliate programs with two tools:

Multi-level Commission Plans

You can create up to 10 levels of commission with our MLM feature. For details on how to set it up, and how each level is granted commission from a purchase, please refer to our guide: MLM - Step By Step - 3 Level Affiliate Chain.

Affiliate Invitation Emails

If you set up a multi-level commission plan, you probably want to make it easy for affiliates to invite other affiliates.

In the Website section of LeadDyno, head over to the Invitations Tab.

Check the Enable Affiliate Invites option as shown above.

You can then fill out a brief introduction for your affiliates which will be shown above the invitation form. You can use this to spell out exactly what sort of reward the affiliates should expect.

Finally, you must fill out a template for the email that the affiliates send. This email should spell out to the invited affiliates exactly why they should join the program. We recommend you make it a relatively personal email rather than marketing heavy, to get better responses.

This email  must contain a link back to the acceptance URL (the default template will already have this link in it) which is:


Replace {YOUR_SUBDOMAIN } with your LeadDyno domain.

Now your affiliates will be able to view the email template on their dashboard on the Invite Others page.

Affiliate Referral Links

You can also enable some settings that allow your affiliates to have a shareable referral link, and view the affiliates in their referral chain.

  • Proceed to the Website section.
  • Enable both of the options:
    • Allow Parent Affiliates To See Children - Enables the Your Network page on the affiliate dashboard and allows them to see referrals.
    • Enable Affiliate Invite Link (MLM) - Enables the  Your Network page on the affiliate dashboard and shows a shareable referral link.
  • Click on Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

Manually Managing Parent Affiliates

If you want to manually set the parent affiliate for an affiliate, simply edit the affiliate and enter the email of the parent affiliate:

And that’s all you need to start your own multi-level affiliate marketing program using LeadDyno.
