    Commission Settings

    Under the commission settings, the admin can set the commission they want to charge on the sale of products.

    Admin can set the commission in two ways:

    • Seller Wise Commission – Charge separate commission from the individual sellers.
    • Global Commission – This is the default commission that will apply to all the sellers on the marketplace.

    The admin can set commission in terms of percentage, fixed amount, or both.

    Seller wise commission

    Percentage Commission

    Say admin sets a 20% commission for a seller. The admin will get the 20% of the product price as a commission from the seller.

    23

    Fixed Amount Commission

    Suppose admin assigns a fixed amount of 10$ as commission for seller’s products. The admin will get the 10$ if the product price is more than 10$. If the product’s price is less than $10, then the admin will get the product’s full price. And, the seller will get zero amount.

    24

    Both (Percentage & Fixed Amount)

    Here, let’s say the admin sets a commission rate of 20% & a fixed amount commission of $5. If a customer orders a product worth $40, then the admin will get $8+$5= $13 as a commission.

    25

    Once the admin has set the commission, they can view it under the Seller Wise Commission tab.

    26

    Seller End View

    213

    Global commission

    The admin can set a global commission that will be applicable to the products of all the sellers. Please note the global commission will work only if the seller-wise commission is not set. It simply means seller-wise commission has greater priority than global commission. The admin can set global commission in terms of percentage, fixed amount, or both. Although explained above, let’s see them again.

    Percentage-wise commission

    The admin will get a set percentage of the product price as commission.

    27

    Seller End View

    Test-Shop-2022-07-14T151045.587

    Fixed Amount

    In this case, the admin can get a set amount of commission. If the commission amount is greater than the product price, then the admin will get the total product price as commission.

    28

    Both (Percentage & Fixed Amount)

    Suppose the admin sets a commission rate of 20% & a fixed amount commission of $5. If a customer orders a product worth $40, then the admin will get $8+$5= $13 as a commission.

    29

    Tax distribution

    The admin can also decide who will get the product tax. Also, they can choose to distribute this product tax between themselves and the seller.

    If the tax distribution is set to either seller or admin. Then it becomes very easy and the tax will go to either admin or the seller as per the settings. And if the commission is set to percentage and distribution is between seller and admin for tax. Then, in this case, the tax will also distribute as per the set percentage.

    Let’s say the percentage commission of the admin is 10% and the seller is getting 90%. And, tax on the product is $10. Then the admin will give only $1 as tax & seller will give $9.

    But in case, if the commission is set to fixed or both. Then, the admin will need to specify the amount of tax separately i.e. The fixed amount of commission on product tax. please refer to the screenshot:

    30

    Manage Admin Commission on Shipping

    The admin can set the seller-wise commission on shipping. Suppose, the admin sets a 10% commission rate on shipping, and the shipping charge on any order is $10. Then, in this case, the admin will get $1 as a commission on shipping. Apart from this, the admin can also set a global commission on shipping applicable to every seller.

    32

    Click on the ” Add admin commission on shipping” button to add commission on shipping for a specific seller.

    33

    Note: This particular commission setting will work only if “shipping distribution between seller & admin both” is on.

    The admin can choose to distribute shipping between the seller, him, or both. To do so, please make sure that the shipping distribution between seller & admin is active in the approval settings.

    The admin can decide on whether to distribute shipping to the seller, admin or both. Go to Shipping -> Carriers -> Select the shipping method -> Shipping distribute to -> Set the value(seller/admin/Both).

    192

    Shipping distribute to admin

    In this case, the whole price of shipping will go to the admin. It will go to admin only, even if the product is of seller.

    Shipping distribute to seller

    If it’s set to distribute the shipping to the seller. Then the whole shipping amount will go to the seller. However, there are the following cases in the case of distribution of shipping to the seller.

    Case 1

    1. The customer ordered a seller’s product “Men’s White T-shirt”.
    2. Shipping method “My carrier” is applied to the product.

    Now at the carriers page in the back office, the admin has set “shipping distribute to Seller” on Shipping.

    193

    Admin end

    194

    Seller End

    195

    Suppose, at the carriers page in the back office, the admin has set “shipping distribute to admin” on shipping. In this case, full shipping charges will go to the admin.

    196

    Case 2

    1. A customer ordered from 2 different sellers.
    2. Shipping method of admin i.e. “My carrier” is applied to the product.

    Now at the carriers page in the back-office, admin has set “shipping distribute to Seller” on admin shipping. Now we will check if shipping is set according to total price or total weight.

    When shipping is set according to total price

    Then following a ratio based on the price of seller 1 and seller 2 products, shipping charges will be distributed between sellers as follows:

    Shipping to seller 1: ((seller 1 product price/total price of both the seller product)*total shipping)

    =((80.00/99.12)*9)
    =0.807 *9
    =7.263

    Shipping to seller 2: ((seller 2 product price/total price of both the seller product)*total shipping)

    =((19.12/99.12)*9)
    =0.192 *9
    =1.736

    197

    If a customer has ordered from 2 different sellers. “Demo product (8 kg)” from seller 1 and “demos prod(6 kg)” from seller 2.

    When shipping is set according to total weight

    Then following a ratio based on weight of seller 1 and seller 2 product, shipping charges will be distribute between sellers as follows:

    Shipping to seller 1: ((‘Steve Jones’ product weight/total weight of both the seller product)*total shipping)

    =((8/14)*7)
    =0.571 * 7
    =4

    Shipping to seller 2: ((‘John Doe’ product weight/total weight of both the seller product)*total shipping)

    =((6/14)*7)
    =0.428 * 7
    =3

    199
    200
    201

    Case 3

    Please note that this case is only applicable when the distribution of shipping between admin & seller is enabled from the configuration settings.

    1. A Customer ordered a product of the seller and a product of the admin.
    2. Admin shipping method “My carrier” is applied to the product.

    Now at the carriers page in back office, admin has set “both” on admin shipping.

    And “distribute shipping between seller and admin both” under the approval settings is Enabled.

    Then following a ratio based on price of admin’s and seller’s product, shipping charges will be distributed between seller and admin as follows:

    Shipping to admin: ((admin product price/total price of admin and seller’s product)*total shipping)

    =((18.90/98.90)*7)
    =0.191*7
    =1.33

    =((80/98.90)*7)
    =0.808*7
    =5.66

    Shipping to seller: ((seller product price/total price of admin and seller’s product)*total shipping)

    202

    Now at the carriers page in the back office, admin has set “shipping distribute to Seller” on admin shipping.

    And approval setting “distribute shipping between seller and admin both” under configuration is disabled.

    Then in this case, full shipping charges will go to the seller.

    Seller End

    203

    Now at the carriers page in the back office, admin has set “shipping distribute to admin” on admin shipping. And approval setting “distribute shipping between seller and admin both” under configuration is Enabled.

    Result of which the entire shipping will go to the admin.

    Note: Admin can also view the shipping for every seller separately under the “Manage seller order” page.

    Multi Shop Compatibility

    PrestaShop Advanced Multi-Vendor Marketplace module version 5.4.0/3.4.0 is now multi shop compatible.

    Seller List

    189-1200x605-jpg-1200×605

    Seller Product

    The list of products offered by every seller from each shop is also available at the admin’s end.

    190

    Store wise payment modes available for the customer to make payment is available to the admin.

    191

    There are some cases that you need to understand if you are using the module in multi-shop mode.

    Consider you have a shop group in which the “Share Customers” option is active. And, this shop group contains two shops i.e., Shop 1 & Shop 2.

    Now, there are some things about customers & sellers that will work in the following manner.

    To understand the cases better, let’s just assume there is a customer named customer A.

    • Now, If customer A registers on Shop 1 then he/she will be able to login to Shop 2 too.
    • The same customer A now registers as a seller on Shop 1 then he/she will also be registered on Shop 2 automatically.

    For reference, let’s name customer A who registered as a seller as seller A.

    • Now, the product added by seller A on Shop 1 will also be visible on Shop 2 too. However, seller A will be able to edit the product details on that shop only where he/she added the product. In this case, editing will be available on Shop 1 not on Shop 2.

    GDPR Compliance
