Step-By-Step Guide

Basic Commission Structure

To begin creating your Commission structure, go to Manager > Commission.

Here you will see a list of existing commission structures if there are any, and a button to Add a new structure.

To create a new commission structure, click Add. To edit an existing structure, double-click it.

Give the commission structure a name by entering one into the Commission Name field. The Commission name is just a reference for you to know which structure you're applying to each staff member. You can edit this later if you need to.


Next, use the Services Default Commission and/or Product Default Commission dropdown menus at the top of each section to apply a commission % to all Service Categories and/or Product Categories.

If you have different commission structures for each Service Category or Product Category, or have different commission structures for individual Services or Products, you can click the drop-down options beside each row to change them individually

Target-based/Tiered Commission Structure

You can create levels of targets where more commission is earned after a staff member has surpassed a particular value of sales, by using the + button when building your commission structure.

For example, with the structure below applied a staff member would not start earning commission until they've reached 300 in Service sales. Once they surpass 300 in service sales, they would then start earning 7% on any additional sales between 300 and 700. Then, once they surpass 700, they will start earning 12% on any further sales thereafter.
