The cTrader Partner Program supports an unlimited number of Partner levels. The Partner at the top of the hierarchy will always receive something from each Partner beneath them regardless of how many there are.
The more Partners there are in the chain will cause dilution as revenue sharing travels from the Partner at the bottom to the Partner at the top.
Here is an example of how revenue is shared and the calculation for how each Partner for each level is paid, from the bottom to the top of the chain.
In this example, each Partner must share 30% with their Parent Partner and the first Partner's revenue share from their broker is $1000.
Partner 6 has $1000 from their clients' performance, Partner 6 shares 30% with their Parent Partner, (
1000*0.3=300) $300 will become Partner 5's profit and $700 will be the total profit for Partner 6.
Partner 5 has $300 which is their income from Partner 6, Partner 5 shares 30% with their Parent Partner, (
300*0.3=90) $90 will become Partner 4's profits and $210 will be the total profit for Partner 5.
Partner 4 has $90 which is their income from Partner 5, Partner 4 shares 30% with their Parent Partner, (
90*0.3=27) $27 will become Partner 3's profit and $63 will be the total profit for Partner 4.
Partner 3 has $27 which is their income from Partner 4, Partner 3 shares 30% with their Parent Partner, (
27*0.3=8.1) $8.10 will become Partner 2's profit and $18.9 will be the total profit for Partner 3
Partner 2 has $8.10 which is their income from Partner 3, Partner 2 shares 30% with their Parent Partner, (
8.1*0.3=2.43) $2.43 will become Partner 1's profit and $5.67 is will be the total profit for Partner 2.
Partner 1 will receive $2.43 from Partner 2 and this is their profit from what Partner 6 achieved.
While this calculation is based on only Partner 6 earning money from their activity, in practice, each Partner within this chain will have other sources of revenue from their clients and other Sub-Partners and Sub-Partner chains.
Additionally, while only six levels are present in this example, the potential of this application is unlimited.
The more Sub-Partners which a Partner has will result in them being part of multiple chains as displayed in the above example.
A single Partner could be at the top of hundreds of chains with hundreds of levels.
