WCMp Vendor Commission Workflow

If you have set up different types of vendor commission, you might become confused about the workflow. This means you may not figure out which type of commission will work in different situations. Here is the explanation.

  • Product Based
  • Category Based
  • Vendor Based
  • Global Commission
First Priority: Product Wise Commission

WCMp prioritizes the commission from smaller segments starting with the Product. If you have set up Product Wise commission and also vendor wise commissions, then WCMp will count the product wise commission first. If there is no product wise commission, then the vendor commission will be used.

Second Priority: Product Category Wise Commission

After product Wise commission, WCMp will consider product category Wise commissions. It will use this commission rate whether you have vendor Wise or global commission set up or not.

Third Priority: Vendor Wise Commission

If you have vendor Wise commission set up in your multivendor marketplace, it will be considered as the third priority. If there is no product Wise or product category Wise commission set up, WCMp will use this commission.

Fourth Priority: Global Commission

If there is no other commission available, then WCMp will use the Global Commission.
