Step 1. Make sure that all of the commissions are listed in descending order (commission #1 being the highest rate, including minimum commissions, and commission #9 being the lowest). To set the commissions...

  • Setup
  • Rates
  • Commissions
  • Enter the appropriate commissions. To enter a 100% commission put in 99.99. To enter a dollar amount commission enter the dollar amount multiplied by 100. For example: a per item fee of $10 would be entered as a commission of 1000.
Step #2. Create a sliding scale schedule. Up to 9 different schedules can be created.
  • Setup
  • Rates
  • Sliding scales
  • Enter a number between 1 and 9.
  • For each commission level enter the price breakpoint for which that commission will apply.
  • For the lowest commission rate put in a breakpoint of 9999999.99
Step #3. Apply the sliding scale. Important: The sliding scale commissions can only be applied to existing sales data.
  • Current auction
  • Seller settlement & seller number
  • Press 'S' for slide
  • Enter the schedule number to apply
The program will apply the appropriate commission number to each item.

To apply the sliding scale to all items in an auction...

  • Current auction
  • Modify/view sales
  • All sales
  • Press 'S' for slide
  • Enter the appropriate schedule number
Note: Use schedule numbers 1 through 5 if you would like to apply the schedule to the extended price of each item. To apply the schedule to the unit price use schedules 6 through 9.

Here's an example...
$2 commission for each item up to $10, 20% on items up to $100, and 15% for all other items.

Setup the commission rates...

  • Comm 1 = $2
  • Comm 2 = 20%
  • Comm 3 = 15%

Setup the sliding scale breakpoints...

  • Bpoint 1 = $10
  • Bpoint 2 = $100
  • Bpoint 3 = $9999999
