How to Payout a Commission

How to Payout a Commission

You can create payouts inside a vendors account or in your storewide vendors tab. 

Create a Payout Inside a Vendor Account

  1. Select the vendor's account in your vendors tab and navigate to their commissions. 


  2. Filter the orders by a date range (if needed)


  3. Select the orders you would like to include in your payout. Click on "Select all unpaid items within current date range" if orders span multiple pages.



  4. Select "Add Payout for x Orders." 


  5. Review the information in the Payout Review, add payout notes, and confirm payout. If using PayPal, check the "Pay with PayPal" box before confirming the payout. The PayPal transaction number will display in the payout notes section. 



  6. Once a payout is created the orders will be marked as paid in your vendor's commission page. You can view any payout in your vendor's payouts tab or in your storewide payouts tab. 

Create a Payout in the Vendors Tab

  1. In your vendors tab, select "Update Totals" in the top left corner. This will quickly recalculate the amounts listed in the "due," "paid," and "earned" columns, which are cached values, so they correctly match the payout amount.
    *The amounts listed in the payout review will always reflect the correct amount owed. This step simply ensures the cached columns match. 


  2. Use the date range filter to select orders for a specific time period, if needed. 


  3. One-by-one, select "Pay Now" next to the vendor accounts you would like to create a payout for. 


  4. Review the information in the Payout Review, add payout notes, and confirm payout. If using PayPal, check the "Pay with PayPal" box before confirming the payout. The PayPal transaction number will display in the payout notes section.  View our tutorial on integrating with PayPal here
