Types Of Commission

Under the Revenue Sharing mode of the Commission Tab, you will be able to find various options that will help set the flow in which your commission would be calculated. These options are:

  1. Fixed Amount- Admin can charge the vendor a fixed amount per transaction. For e.g, if Product X is $100 and the customer buys 4 of them then the total comes  $400. In case the admin fee is $10 he shall receive [ 4 x $10 ] which is  $40. The rest $360 will go to the vendor. Similarly, if the admin decides the vendor’s commission to be $80 then the vendor would receive [4*80] which is $320 the rest $80 would belong to the admin.
  1. Percentage- The percentage amount that could be charged on the total transaction or sale value.  For e.g, if Product X is $100 and the customer orders 3 of them. In this case, admin fee charged could be 10% of the total transaction, then he would receive $30 [(100*3) * 10/100]. The rest $270 goes to the vendor.  Similarly, the admin can decide to give the vendor 80% of the total transaction as the vendor’s commission. Then the calculation stands as $240 [(100*3)*80/100] leaving the rest $60 to the admin.
  1. %age + fixed (per amount transaction)- Commissions is calculated, on the basis of the percentage of the total transaction or sale value with the addition of a fixed amount for every transaction.  For e.g, if Product X is $100 and the customer orders 3 of them the admin fee charged would be 10% of total transaction + a fixed amount of $10. The admin would then receive $40 [(100*3) * 10/100 +$10]. The rest $260 would go to the vendor. Similarly, the admin can decide to give the vendor 80%  of the total transaction plus a fixed amount of $10, as the vendor’s commission. Then the calculation stands as $250 [(100*3)*80/100+$10] leaving the rest $50 to the admin.
  1. %age + fixed (per unit)- Commissions is calculated, on the basis of the percentage of the total transaction or sale value plus a fixed amount per unit or per product. For e.g, if Product X is $100 and the customer orders 3 of them the admin fee charged would be 10% of total transaction + a fixed amount of $10. The admin would then receive $60 [(100*3) * 10/100 +$(10*3)]. The rest $240 would go to the vendor.  Similarly, the admin can decide to give the vendor 80%  of the total transaction plus a fixed amount of $10, as the vendor’s commission. Then the calculation stands as $270 [(100*3)*80/100+$(10*3)] leaving the rest $30 to the admin.
  1. Commission by product Price– you can configure different commission rules for different ranges of product prices. So for example let’s consider the following scenario for admin commission: 20% commission for products upto costs 100$ and 20$ fixed commission for products above 100$
  1. Commission by Purchase Quantity- you can set different commission rules for different ranges of product prices. So for example let’s consider the following scenario:

i) 80% commission when purchasing quantity 2

ii) 20 fixed commission when purchasing quantity more than 2 and so on.

  1. %age + fixed (per vendor)- Product A is priced at $200, Product B is prices $100 and Commission percentage in case of Admin Fees is set to 5% and a Fixed amount of $10 has been set. Customer orders 1 Product A and 1 Product B. You will receive a fees of $25 [ ( (300) * 5/100 ) + (10) ] while vendor receives the rest $275.
