Unilevel:

Unilevel compensation plans are defined by only one line of distributors. Every distributor is on your frontline, and there is no width limitation for the frontline, meaning that you can have as many distributors as you choose. The goal of unilevel plans is to recruit a large number of frontline distributors, and then encourage these distributors to do the same. Because unilevel plans are easy to understand and require minimal amount of personal volume, they are considered basic and simple plans for getting started in network marketing. However, there are restrictions on the amount of commission a person can receive.

Unlimited Income:

Unlimited income is a continuous flow of money without limits. The amount of money has no boundaries and no geographic territories are required, and any business person or sales person can acquire unlimited income through high sales and large profit margins. This is also stated as the “sky is the limit” method of earning money, and it is often the phrase used by businesses in developing the marketing strategies for its employees. Unlimited income is achieved by recruiting people in a downline and by the continuous distribution of the product.

Upline:

The upline is the person who recruited you into an MLM company, or any person who is connected within the same line to the person who recruited you. Understanding the word “upline” is a lot like understanding the word “boss.” The person you work for is your boss, but the person he works for is also your boss. Your upline is the person who brought you into the business – but their upline is also your upline.
