Commission King adds a custom write panel to your Edit Product pages and a Settings panel to administer and pay commissions.
Once a commission value is assigned to a product, Commission King tracks all orders made through your store and prepares a list of pending payments. Commission King is even flexible enough to handle fixed or percentage based commissions.
Integrated with your store’s front-end Accounts page, Commission King enables your commission recipients to view their commission history, and update their preferred payment details.
Based on your store’s terms of sale (e.g. non-refundable after 30 days), the commission process can be easily tracked through Pending, Payable, Overdue, Paid and Cancelled. You can even pay commissions directly from Commission King, via cheque, bank transfer, or PayPal!

How are commission payments handled?
When a Commission Recipient logs in to their Account page, they are able to set up their payment preferences, including Paypal, cheque or Bank Transfer. Once the Commission Recipient has set this up, the store owner is able to pay them in one of two ways:
- Pay each commission individually. This is done on the Commissions page. Choose the payment method from the dropdown menu, and if necessary you will be redirected through Paypal to make the payment.
- Bulk pay commissions. This is useful if the Commission Recipient has multiple commissions owed, so that you can pay them all at once. Go to the Pay Commissions page which shows all commissions owed grouped by recipient. You can pay the total amount owed from here in the same way you pay for the individual commissions.
How is the commission ‘paid’ status updated? Is automatic or you have to change it manually?
If you are using Paypal, once the payment has been completed Paypal sends you back to your WordPress admin screen. Commission King then uses Paypal’s API to know if the transaction was successful, and if so, will automatically update the commission status to paid.
If you are using bank transfer or cheque payments, you are able to mark commission as paid from the payment screen.
Can a product have multiple payees?
Yes – a product can have multiple payees. It can even have multiple payments to a single payee.
Is this compatible with the Product Importer Deluxe plugin (ie. can I enter payees and commissions in my CSV?)
Commission King is not compatible with Product Importer Deluxe just yet.
Commission King comes with a Quick Start document (readme.txt) to help with installing the Plugin. Additional support can be found from the Contact page or methods below.
