Commission Rate Plan Samples

Commission Rate Plans allow you to specify a sliding scale for the commission rate to be used when calculating commission amounts on transactions posted to an account. These plans are used when you need more than two rates for calculating commission due on a transaction.

Sample commission rate plans linked to this page will give you an idea of how commission rate plans can be used to quickly and accurately calculate commission using a sliding scale. Experiment with the commission rate plan choices to see the effects each plan has on the debtor's commission rate.

Some commission rate plans set the commission rate when you have completed entering a new debtor. If the rate depends on values only from the Debtor form, then the commission rate can be calculated and established immediately.

Other commission rate plans depend on posting a transaction before Collect! can establish the appropriate commission rate. This may result in a Debtor form that does not show a commission rate percentage, at first. This is quite normal. Once a payment is posted, Collect! will calculate the commission rate and set it appropriately.

Commission rates set by certain types of commission rate plans are averaged before being displayed in Collect! The data evaluated may need to be calculated over more than one commission rate step set in the plan. The two steps are averaged in these cases. You can view more details by trying the sample plans that have this effect.

Using Minimum and Maximum values can also result in calculation and display of an unexpected commission rate percentage. Details are explained in the topic Setting Min and Max Commission Amounts.

tip.gif Commission rate plans are most efficient when you have commission rates that slide many levels. If you only change the commission rate once, for instance, when an account goes Legal, you should consider using a Rate type contact to change the commission rate at the required time. For example, if your commission rate changes from 30% to 50% when you send an account to Legal, use a contact event to change the rate to 50% instead of using a commission rate plan.
