Configure Splits for Your Vendors

What are Splits in VendorPayout?


Great question. A vendor 'split' is the amount a vendor gets paid for each sale of products associated to that vendor.  Splits can be set up as a percentage of each sale or as a fixed amount.


Split are also referred to as commissions. For example, if your vendor split is set to 30%, then the amount your vendor will receive is 30% of the product price.


This article will guide you through how to add a default split when new vendors are added and how to configure/modify splits for your vendors.

Default Splits


You have the option to set a default split amount. The default amount will be applied to new vendors the first time they are added to VendorPayout. To add a default split:


  1. Launch the VendorPayout app.
  2. Select Vendors.
    The main menu is displayed with Vendors link highlighted.
  3.  Scroll down to the bottom of the list of vendors. Then, click the Configure Default Splits link.
    The configure default splits link is highlighted at the bottom of the list of vendors.
  4. Select whether the split will be a Percentage or a Fixed Amount from the drop-down menu.

  5. Enter the percentage or fixed dollar amount.

  6. Click the Save default button to save your changes.


From now on, this split amount will be automatically added when a new vendor is added to VendorPayout.



Add/Edit Vendor Splits


To add or edit splits for a vendor:

  1. Launch the VendorPayout app.
  2. Select Vendors.
    The main menu is displayed with Vendors link highlighted.
  3. Click the Edit link for the vendor you wish to configure a split.
    Vendors are shown. The Edit link is highlighted for one vendor.
  4. Select whether the split will be a Percentage or a Fixed Amount from the drop-down menu.
    The drop-down menu is expanded showing the percentage and the fixed amount options.
  5. Enter the percentage or fixed dollar amount.
    A percentage is entered into the correct field.
  6. Click the Save Vendor Split Setting button.
    The button is highlighted.
