88  How can a cumulative commissions be applied? This required version 4.62.6 or higher.

Here is an example of a cumulative commission structure...
  • $1 - $100 commission is 35%
  • $101 - $500 @ 25% + $35
  • $501 - $1,000 @ 15% + $134.75
  • $1,001 - $5,000 @ 10% + $209.60
  • More than $5,001 @ 5% + $609.50

Using notepad, create a file called C:\MAXA\FCOM.DAT

In the file add the following lines...

    0
    35
    134.75
    209.60
    609.50
    0
    0
    0
    0
    0

Each line represents the offset commission to apply to each commission number.

In Maxa, set the commission rates (Setup/Rates/Commissions) as follows...

  • Commission 1 = 35%
  • Commission 2 = 25%
  • Commission 3 = 15%
  • Commission 4 = 10%
  • Commission 5 = 5%
  • Commission 6 = 0%
  • Commission 7 = 0%
  • Commission 8 = 0%
  • Commission 9 = 0%

Next create a sliding scale (Setup/Rates/Sliding commissions/1-9).

  • The breakpoint for the 35% rate is $100.
  • The breakpoint for the 25% rate is $500.
  • The breakpoint for the 15% rate is $1000.
  • The breakpoint for the 10% rate is $5000.
  • The breakpoint for the 5% rate is $99999999.

To apply the sliding scale (after the auction)...

  • Current auction
  • Modify/View sales
  • All sales
  • Press 'S' for slide
  • Enter the sliding scale number (1-9).

The appropriate commissions (precentage and dollar amounts) will appear on the settlements.

It may be helpful to display the commission structure in the seller settlement message (Setup/Invoices/Messages/Seller settlement message) to help explain the commission structure.
