In Sage X3, commission module provides enhancement of existing commission feature of Sage X3. It helps in overcoming challenges such as accuracy in sales commission calculation, timely payment to sales representatives, track of commissions of sales representatives, etc.

In this blog we will learn how to setup commission rate for different combinations such as customer category, product category, sales site, shipment site, state group, etc. in sales commission module.

The commission rate setup screen contains fields such as State group code, sales site, customer category, product category, shipment site, commission calculation method, commission base, range and commission. The commission can be set for multiple combinations of sales site, shipment site, state group, customer category and product category where customer category and product category are mandatory fields.

Consider an example of customer category and product category combination for commission rate setup such that “US” as Customer category and “BMSOL” as product category, “Flat” as Commission Calculation Method, “Net Price” as Commission Base. The commission rate setup screen provides an option to select commission in single range as well as multiple ranges. If the “Range” checkbox is ticked a pop up screen appears for adding multiple ranges for different combinations.

After clicking on “OK”, the range will be added in the grid and first range will be visible to the user.

If the “Range” checkbox not selected, then the user can enter direct commission value as shown below.

Click on “Save” button to save the record.

Also, this range screen can be accessed from the left action button in the grid as “Edit Range” button so that user can edit the already entered range as shown in above figure.

The commission will be calculated on the above setup in sales order and sales invoice transactions.

Consider a sales order transaction for the above customer category and product category commission rate setup.

Navigate to All-> Sales -> Orders -> Select a transaction and create a sales order.
