Do I get Paid for Inactive Downline Affiliates?

You do not get paid for active or inactive affiliates.

Active affiliates mean they have also sponsored into the level below them.

Inactive affiliates mean they have not sponsored so your affiliate network terminates on them in the level.

You sponsor an affiliate in level 1, but they do not sponsor = Inactive. Inactive affiliates CAN earn you overrides when they do personal work and introduce users. They can also earn you commission if they personally sign up as a user to one of our services. However that is where the earnings stop! Because they did not sponsor, your 16 level potential downline from the inactive affiliate stops, therefore you can only earn from 1 level through them. If you have other affiliates on your level 1 and they are active then you will get paid overrides by their entire downline until it hits an inactive affiliate.
