    VAT on Commission

    You can now manage the VAT (tax) calculation on the commission you set in the app. Simply choose whether you want to include the VAT on the commission or you want to make it exclusive.

    You can visit the Invoice Configuration menu under the Configuration menu to configure the settings.

    Let’s understand this with an example:-

    Tax Inclusive Case:-

    Suppose, Product Price is $100.
    Admin’s Commission is 10% i.e $10.

    Let’s say Y is the commission in $10 earned by admin and 18% is the VAT
    So, now Y + (18% of Y) = 10.
    This comes to 1.18Y=10
    So, Y is 8.47.
    The commission is 8.47 in the invoice and the remaining 10- 8.47 = $1.53 is VAT in the invoice.
    This is the maths applied to such tax-inclusive calculations.

    Tax Exclusive Case:-

    Product Price is $100.
    Admin’s Commission is 10% i.e $10.

    Now, suppose you charge 10% VAT on commission i.e. VAT=10% of $10 (commission)

    In this case, the admin’s earning will be $11 ($10 commission + $1 VAT) and the rest amount $89 ($100- $11) will be the seller’s earning.

    This VAT on commission will be visible on the order invoice that you send to your customers.

    Moreover, a new section is added to the commission listing section in the app.

    You will now have the option to choose if you want to add header & footer to the mail templates of the mail send to sellers and the customers or not.

    You can visit the Mail Configuration menu of the app and enable/disable the settings as per the requirement.

    In the mail configuration, scroll down to the bottom and configure the settings.

    Allow Seller to Cancel Order Fulfillment

    You can now allow sellers to cancel the order fulfillment from their respective seller panels. For this, you need to enable the configuration from the Order Configuration menu.

    Enable the settings “Allow Seller to Cancel Order Fulfillment”:-

    Now, the sellers will get the option to cancel the fulfillment in their Order detail section.

    Go to Order Listing>>Select a fulfilled order to cancel its fulfillment>>Click the View button(Action) menu.

    On the Order Detail page, the seller will get the option to cancel fulfillment.

    Clicking the “Cancel Fulfillment” button, the seller can cancel the fulfillment of an order and the same would reflect in the order detail section of the admin panel.

    Note:- The sellers will not get the option to cancel the order fulfillment in case the order is fulfilled by the admin.

    This feature will work in these shipping methods: FedEx, Vamaship, USPS, UPS, Marketplace Shipping, Free shipping, and Others.

    Allow Seller to Accept/Reject Order

    You can now choose whether you want the sellers to accept or reject the orders from their respective seller panels. Go to Configuration>>Order Configuration>>Enable Allow Seller to Accept Order>>Save Changes.

    After enabling this option, the seller will have the option to accept/reject the customer’s order. Once an order is placed, the seller needs to visit the Order Detail section & perform the action.

    Clicking the View button, the seller will have the order details, get scroll down to the bottom & in the Fulfillment Detail section, he/she can Accept or Reject the order.

    CASE 1: ACCEPT ORDER

    Clicking the Accept Order button, the seller can accept all the orders at a time and proceed to fulfill the order.

    Order Accepted

    CASE 2: REJECT ORDER

    Clicking the Reject Order button, the seller needs to give a reason for order rejection & hit the Reject Order button.

    Order Rejected

    This way, the order will be rejected by the seller.

    For the rejected orders, you can configure an option to cancel the order at the same time. Go to Configuration>>Order Configuration>>AUTO CANCEL ORDER ON REJECT.

    In case, You enable the Auto Cancel Order on Reject option:-
    Then, all the items of this rejected order will get restocked and if the order is Paid & Captured then, the order amount will be refunded.

    In case, You disable the Auto Cancel Order on Reject option:-
    Then, you need to manually restock the items on your store and manage the refund accordingly.

    Know how to Manage Discount on Orders

    The amount paid via wallet will appear in the invoice of each order placed on your store.

    PLEASE NOTE:-
    If you have already downloaded the invoice or if you have saved the previous invoice template then the “Pay via Wallet” option will not appear in the order invoice both on seller invoice as well as customer invoice.
    If any of the above is the case, you can either reset the template on your own or send a request for the same. We will do it for you.

    Is there a way for the app to pick up on shopify discounts? Right now it is awarding too much money to the vendor because it doesn’t recognize the applied discount…
