Match Depreciation Graphic
Match Depreciation is a term used to describe a provision in the Pay Plan 360 algorithm that reduces the point earning value of a network position each time its points are matched on in a given month. The depreciation schedule is set up to reward the users who are closest to the position while the more it is matched on, the less value it returns to the match point earners. A user can reverse the effect of match depreciation by earning the Best Practices Bonuses. This provision is set up to reward the users who develop the strongest and most robust network while limiting abuse of the system users who may only have one large branch of business from which they earn. Built on the pillar of fairness among users, this provision protects the point value from being decreased by earning points from the same position without adding real traffic and revenue to the system.
