Back-End Flow

New tabs add after the successful installation of the module.


Manage Category Commission

Go to marketplace management tab -> manage category commission


Choose the categories to set the commission as well as the commission rate.


A list of all the added category commissions will display.


Manage Product Commission

Go to marketplace management tab -> Manage product commission


Select the products to apply commission as well as set the product commission.


A list of all the added commissions on seller products will display.


In this way, an admin can successfully add the commission based on categories or products.


Now, the commission will calculate as per the configuration set by the admin.

Let’s say the admin sets the following commissions.

  • Category commission – 10% on casual dresses & 5% on evening dresses
  • Product commission – 5% on “Blue T-shirt” product
  • Default marketplace commission – 15% as global commission

Product Commission

Admin has set commission type in the configuration as “Product Commission”


Product commission set for sellers products.


When a customer places an order for a seller product on which product commission is applicable.

The commission will calculate based on the product commission on that product and will not depend on the marketplace or seller wise commission set in the marketplace commission.


Category Commission

If any product lies under various categories on which admin set the commission, then in this case the specified commission during configuration will be applicable on the product, despite the product being purchased from the category with the lowest commission or highest commission.

Admin has set commission type in the configuration as “Category Commission”


A product belongs to various categories such as casual dresses, evening dresses, women, and home and the commission is on 2 categories: casual dresses and evening dresses.


A customer is purchasing this product from “casual dresses”, the category with the highest commission. Then, in this case, the commission will be 5% (commission based on the evening dresses category).

It’s because the same product lies under the evening dresses category too with a minimum commission rate.


The category commission on the product is the minimum commission for all categories of this product. As the category commission is set to minimum.


So, this was all about the PrestaShop Marketplace Advance Commission module. I hope this document will help you in checking the functionality of the module in a better way.
