DDI System configures a number of sales commission default settings during implementation. These should help you understand how your commissions are being calculated, but do not change these without consulting a DDI Customer Care specialist.
You can find all of these settings on File>Company>Master: Pricing and Costing.
- Salesman Commission Cost
The base cost used to calculate the gross profit and commission amount on the Salesman Commission Statement. DDI recommends keeping this the same as the cost field used to calculate the Gross Profit percent on your Sales Orders, which is configured in the Sales Order GP% Cost Column on the same page of the Company Master.
- Salesman Commissions based on (S)ales/(P)aid Invoices
Determines which invoices the system includes in the commission calculations. Sales will include any invoiced orders; Paid Invoices only includes fully paid invoices.
- Add Freight Cost to Summary Commissions Calculation
Determines whether freight costs are included as part of the invoice cost for the calculation of salesperson commissions. The freight cost used is the amount from the Sales Order.
- Salesman Commissions by Product Detail
Determines if the commissions are calculated based on the merchandise total or on individual merchandise line items. Commission requirements look at the GP%, GP$, or Merchandise Amount per unit, not the overall amount for the line on the order. For more information, see the Organize your detailed commission structure.
- Number of Days not to Pay Commissions
If commissions are based on Paid Invoices, then any invoice older than the number of days set here will exempt from commission calculations.
