This is the thirteenth lesson in the series Learning Sage X3. Is this lesson, I am going to cover how commissions work in Sage X3. To link specific products with specific reps, and, specific customers then Price books will be the best way to manage this.
Commissions in Sage X3 assigns commission at the time of a sales order based on sales rep to the line ordered. Hence, if no Sales rep is referenced, then no commission will be calculated.
Set up a sales rep with the commission factors in Sage X3:
Go to: Common Data > BPs > Sales reps
The customer must also have commission set up in Sage X3:
Go to: Common Data > BPs > Customers – Commercial tab
Please refer to the screenshot below. Here you can see John Kelly, Sales rep NA104, commission rate type category 1, is correctly set up to the Customer (Gattos Bike Shop).
In addition, reference the sales rep on the ship-to customer address for the default to occur at the line during sales order entry.
Go to: Common Data > BPs > Customers – Ship-to customer tab
In the screenshot below, you can notice John Kelly, Sales rep NA104 is entered in as Sales rep 1 under Miscellaneous.
Optional Price book with the commission factor over-ride:
Go to: Sales > Price Lists Entry: T509 Representative Commission
Sales Order Entry
Notice John Kelly, NA104, sales rep is automatically assigned to the sales order. This is because the order is being sold to Gattos Bike Shop. I hope this blog post was helpful and provided a good starting point for commissions in Sage X3.
