Pay commissions that are not a percentage or that vary by item sold

This can occur when:  

  • Commissions are amounts rather than percentages.
  • Assigning different commission percentages to certain items.
Detailed instructions
Specify the commission:
  1. Click the Lists drop down and select Item List.
  2. Double-click the item you want to track for commissions when used on an invoice or sales receipt.
  3. On the Edit Item window, click Custom Fields, and then click Define Fields.
  4. Select the first empty Use checkbox, type Commission in the adjacent Label field, and then click OK.
  5. In the Custom Fields for [Item] window, enter the amount of the commission in the newly created Commission field.
    • If the commission is a percentage, enter the decimal value instead. For example, type .12 for a 12% commission.
    • If the commission amount or percentage has not been determined or will fluctuate, leave the Commission field blank.
  6. Click OK.
If the sales representatives are not yet entered:
  1. From the Lists Menu, select Customer & Vendor Profile Lists > Sales Rep List.
  2. Click Sales Rep and select New.
  3. On the New Sales Rep window, enter the information about the sales representative, and then click OK.
  4. Customize the template for the invoice or cash sale receipt by adding the commission and sales representative information. For the Commission column, select the checkbox for Screen, rather than Print.
