How reseller commission is calculated.
Reseller commission is calculated as a difference between end price and reseller price of parent account. The parent account can be either master reseller or parent sub-reseller. There are two different cases:
- Sub-reseller uses master reseller prices
- Reseller defines own prices
Calculation reseller commission using master reseller’s prices
In this case reseller commission is calculated using Price and Reseller price defined by master reseller. For example, if Price is 100,00 and Reseller price is 90,00 – reseller commisssion will be 10,00.
Prices defined in Master reseller's price list: Price: 100,00 Reseller price: 90,00 Calculated commission: 100,00 - 90,00 = 10,00
Calculation of reseller commission using own prices
In this case commission is calculated using Price defined by sub-reseller and Reseller price defined by master reseller.
Prices defined in sub-reseller's price list: Price: 95,00 Reseller price: 91,00 Calculated commission: 95,00 - 90,00 = 5,00
Using reseller commission as discount
Use commission as discount is an option in Account options of reseller’s account: Admin Panel > Customer Card (of reseller) > Misc.
If reseller has this setting activated, and customer’s invoice is sent to the reseller, commission will be used to as discount (in the cart and later on invoice). The status of the commission will be set to PaidOutAsDiscount.
Use Commission As Discount - ON: Price: 95,00 Reseller price: 90,00 Discount: 5,00 Invoice total: 95,00 - 5,00 = 90,00 + VAT Commission: 5,00 (Paid out as discount) Use Commission As Discount - OFF: Price: 95,00 Reseller price: 90,00 Discount: 0,00 Invoice total: 95,00 + VAT Commission: 5,00 (Pending)
Calculation of reseller commission and discounted invoices
If invoice is discounted, due to campaign or upgrade, reseller commission is calculated as: Reseller commission = Price – Reseller_price – Discount.
Commission cannot be negative. For example, if Reseller_price > Price – Discount, then commission is 0.
