Enabling and assigning commission to a staff member

When making a sale to a client, you can assign a staff member to receive commission for the purchase. Before a staff member can be assigned to receive commission for a client’s purchase, you must enable commissions in your store settings and set up a commission pay rate for the staff member through their staff profile. For more information, see Setting a staff member’s pay rates.

You can also assign a staff member to receive commission for a previously sold purchase option or for every purchase made by a specific client.

When assigning commission to a staff member, keep the following information in mind:

  • If there is more than one item in the shopping cart, you must assign commission for each item individually.
  • A staff member will only receive commission for an auto-renewing purchase option if the payment, or reattempted payment, is successful. For more information, see Automatic Payment settings in Business policy settings.
  • When selling a package in the store, the Apply commission to future auto-payments option will not be visible at checkout unless the package is set to auto-renew, even if the package contains purchase options that are set to auto-renew.
  • When a client uses a membership to pay for a visit, commission pay rates will not be applied unless the client is attending a class and using a membership that has a value set in the Approximate revenue per session field under Revenue & Staff Payroll Calculation in the membership’s advanced settings. For more information, see Adding a rate of commission to a membership.
