Commissions

This function allows you to define rules for the purposes of calculating commission for salespeople.  

Figure: Example Commissions Screen

The Commission Levels grid allows you to specify different levels of achievement. The system will calculate the total sales or gross profit (depending on how the levels are defined) for each user and find the appropriate commission level. This allows you to give increasing levels of rewards for increasing achievements. If you want to specify a single level of rates regardless of total achievement, you still need to set up one level record. This would have a From/To Value of 0 to 9999999.

The Commission Rates grid contains the rates within each level. As you scroll through the commission levels, the data in the Commission Rates grid will be updated to the rates of the highlighted level. The system will determine which level to use and then it will use the rate rules within that level to calculate the actual commission.

This rate only applies to items in this department. If the department is empty, the rate will apply to all items.

This rate only applies to items in this group. If the group is empty, the rate will apply to all items.

Rate

The rate of commission to be applied. This is used in conjunction with Rate Type to calculate a commission amount.

Rate Type

This determines how the commission will be calculated.

The commission will be calculated on the specific transaction that has triggered this rate to be selected. So if you have a sale of one beverage and one food item, and they have two different rates, the commission will be calculated on the food item, using the food items sales/GP and then commission will be calculated on the food item. Since they used two different commission rates, there would be two entries on the report, one for each rate. If you sold another beverage, the commission would be calculated on that sale and added to the beverage total already shown on the report.

The available rate types are as follows:

% Of Ex Tax Sales

The commission will be calculated as a percentage of the ex-tax sales.

% Of Inc Tax Sales

The commission will be calculated as a percentage of the inc-tax sales.

% Of GP

The commission will be calculated as a percentage of the gross profit.

Amount/Unit

The commission will be calculated as an amount multiplied by the units sold.
