There are three ways to create parent/child relationships between affiliates:
1. Enable MLM in your account by creating a level. When you do this, an MLM tab will appear on the affiliate portal in which affiliates can grab a unique recruitment link. When new affiliates sign up using the affiliate's recruitment link, they will automatically become a child of the affiliate who shared the MLM invite link.
2. You can manually set an affiliate’s parent through the Tapfiliate interface.
To do this, go to Affiliates Overview > Click the affiliate who’s parent you would like to set. You can then set the parent affiliate on the right-side panel. You may also do this after accessing their full profile.
3. It is also possible to set the parent affiliate through the API.
