Example:

Company setting is set to:

  • Calculate service commissions post-discount? = YES
  • Calculate product commissions post-discount? = YES

In Promotions, staff commission is set to be calculated on pre-discount value (gross revenue)

Discount amount - 5%

Service price = $50

Product price = $30

1) Molly has tiered commission by revenue setup for products and services as:

  • Above  $0   per pay cycle then pay  10  %
  • Above  $50   per pay cycle then pay 20  % 

2)  Terry has straight commission set up as:

  • 10 % of services & products revenue

Let’s look at the compensation report to see how the data is displayed and calculated.

Data for Molly - Revenue and commission is calculated pre-discount (based on promotion setting)

  • Service revenue = $50 (gross revenue) 
  • Service commission - 20 % x $50 = $10
  • Product revenue = $30 (gross revenue)
  • Product commission - 10 % x $30 = $3
