How to Enable Commissions

Assign Products' Commission Amount

Allocate Commissions on iPad



In Revel, products can be assigned a commission amount that is to be paid to the employee who sold the product. Each time an employee rings and sells a commissioned product, it will reflect on the commissions report found here under the employee’s name. Commissions can also be split or transferred amongst employees on the iPad when the product is rung up.

This is primary used for retail establishments.

By default, commissions are not enabled. To enable commissions, please follow the instructions below:

Assign Products’ Commission Amount

Once commissions are enabled, each product needs to be assigned a specific commissions amount. This can be either a static amount or a percentage amount.


Note: If commission is set to static amount, it will always remain the same regardless of any item discounts on the product itself. However, percentage will calculate the commission based on the final price of the product AFTER item discount.

  7. Hit Save at the top right to complete


This process can be done via Import/Export as well. Make sure to include “Commission” and “Commission Type” in the additional fields.
