Sliding Scale Service Commission

This allows you to enter a Sliding Scale Commission for a staff member. An example for a sliding scale would be:

  • $0 - $1,499.99 - 40%

  • $1,500 - $2999.99 - 45%

  • $3000 and up - 50%

A sliding scale is similar to the Basic Service Commission except the percentage depends on the service total tier for the staff member. This allows you to customize multiple percentages based on the total amount or services charged / performed for which the staff member has been assigned.

There are two different methods to calculate it. Let's use this screenshot as an example:

Zero-based

With this option, the percentage will be applied to the entire total of services in the reporting period. This is the most common way of calculating sliding based commissions.

On the above screenshot, if the staff member sells $4,000 during the payroll period, their service commission rate will be at 50% which is $2,000.

Progressive

This is similar to how income tax works in most countries. Basically, the percentage gets applied to each tier individually.

On the above screenshot, if the staff member sells $4,000 during the payroll period, their service commission would be as follows:
