Learn how to apply and record a booking commission to agent
iVvy has the ability to store your agent's contact information and agreed commission rates, and calculate the amount of revenue you need to pay back to your agents for each booking.
In iVvy, only Companies can be setup as an agent. If you have an individual person who you pay commission to, you will need to set them up as a Company in the Contacts area.
Creating an Agent
Navigate to Contacts > Companies
Click on the Company tab
Select Agent Commission = YES
Enter in the commission payable for each cost centre displayed. This can be set as a fixed amount or a percentage. Note: you will need to complete each cost centre, so ensure that you add in 0% to any cost centre that is not commissionable
