Similar to Vendor and category level commission, you can set commission rules for individual products as per your requirement. So, different products in your site will fetch different commissions. Keep in mind that this has highest priority in hierarchy and thus if any product has commission rule set, it will over-write all other rules set globally, vendor-wise or category-wise.
To set product wise commission rule, you may set it from here: Goto WCFM Admin Dashboard -> Products -> Product Manage -> Commission. Here’s the screenshot of the same for better understanding.
Note that, by default the commission mode will be set as “By global rule”, you can set the commission rule for this specific product as shown above.
You will also be able to set specific commission rules for different categories, thus product belonging to Category A might have vendor commission set to 90% and Category B set to 85% .
To set this, you can do it from here : Goto WP Admin -> Products -> Categories -> Add/Edit and set the category rule as shown below in the screenshot.
Now, a product may associated with more than one categories. Let me clear you how this will work –
Suppose you have categories hierarchy: Electronics -> Mobile, now you have set vendor commission as following:
Electronics -> 60%
Mobile -> 70%
Now when someone purchases this product “Mobile” category commission i.e 70% will be considered as vendor commission.
Note that you may leave this as “By Global Rule” to apply default rule for this category!
You can set commission rules for individual vendors using this feature, thus for example if you have Vendor A and Vendor B in your site, you can set separate rules for them such as 9% commission for Vendor A and 10% commission for vendor B.
Here’s where you ( as an admin) can configure vendor rules for individual vendors: Goto WCFM Admin Dashboard -> Store Vendors -> Vendor details page -> Commission and Withdrawal Settings

From above you can change the commission mode as per your requirement. Note that by default the mode is set to “Global rule” and will function as per global settings/rules of commission unless you change the same.
Incase admin wants to levy additional tax upon commission earnings he can easily do the same using these settings.
So, let’s take for example if you want to tax a vendor 10% of the commission amount, you can easily do that as shown below
Thus here’s how the order distribution stands:
Product Cost: Rs 1000
Commission set ( percentage wise):10%
Vendor Earning: Rs 900
Commission Tax : 10% ( set)
Vendor Final earning: 900 – (900*10%)= Rs 810 ( as shown above)
Once mode is set for commission, admin can set rules related to other modules such as coupon, shipping etc. Let’s discuss them sequentially:
i) Shipping cost goes to vendor: Enabling this will ensure that the shipping cost added goes to the vendor apart from the commission value which is set by the rules.
ii) Tax goes to vendor: Enabling this will ensure that any taxes added goes to the vendor apart from the commission value which is set by the rules.
iii) Commission after considering Vendor coupon: Incase vendor assigns any coupon for a product and this option is enabled, then the commission generated for vendor will be based on ( Product Price – Discount)
iv) Commission after considering Admin coupon: Incase admin assigns any coupon for a product and this option is enabled, then the commission generated for vendor will be based on (Product Price – admin Discount)
As an admin you can add commission at different levels, apart from declaring the commission rule Globally ( which is valid for the entire site) you can also set specific rules at different levels such as:
1. Vendor level
2. Category Level
3. Product Level.
Now, question is which level will get the most priority over the rules set? To make it clear here is the how the rules will get prioritized:
Product level commission rule > Category Level commission rule > Vendor level commission rule > Global commission rule
So, lets take the following example:
Vendor avi_store commission rule is set such that vendor will get a commission of 90%
Product purchase from avi_store fetches 90% commission to vendor as shown below
But for a particular product belonging to same vendor avi_store, we are setting the commission such that the vendor earns only Rs 10
And here’s a screen-grab showing that the same vendor is receiving only Rs 10 by selling the above product.
Thus Commission rule set for product will have more priority over the rule set for vendor. Moving ahead let’s checkout how these rules are set accordingly.
Commission rules can also be set depending upon purchased product quantity. Thus for example if you want give more commission if the number of product ( quantity) is more, you can easily configure it here.
Let’s take the following example of vendor commission:
80% commission when purchase quantity 2,
85% commission when purchase quantity more than 2 and so on.
Here’s the settings of the same:
Example 1: Purchasing 1 product from vendor store shows vendor commission to be 80%
Ex 2: Purchasing 3 products from vendor store shows vendor commission to be 85%
Similar to the commission rules set via sales volume, you can configure different commission rules for different range of product prices. So for example let’s consider the following scenario for admin commission:
Rs 50 fixed commission for products upto costs Rs 1000
Rs 80 fixed commission for products above Rs 1000
Here’s how you can set the rule:
And here’s the admin commission for a product price of Rs 1000 which is Rs 50 ( as per rule set above)
Note: The product price is calculated in terms of total purchase, thus if a order is placed 3 items of Rs 50 product is purchased, the price slot will be Rs 150 ( 50*3) and not Rs 50
This mode is very important for those who wants to charge commission based on the sales of the vendor, so say suppose you want to create the following rule for vendor commission:
70% commission upto sales $1000
75% commission upto sales $2000
80% commission upto sales $5000
85% commission more than $5000
You can select the commission Type either as percentage, fixed or percentage+ fixed depending upon the rule you want to implement. Ensure that you do not create conflicting rules while configuring the slab.
You can declare the commission value as a summation of Percentage and Fixed.
Thus, assuming that commission for admin is 10% + 90, a Rs 1000 sell will fetch a value of (1000*10%) + 90 = 190 . Here’s a glimpse of settings for better understanding.
