Is it possible to charge a different commission fee to the buyer based on the vendor?
Example: If vendor “A” is a non-profit and we wanted to charge a lower commission for purchases from vendor “A”, but all other vendors have a site wide 10% commission. Is that possible or is there a workaround that is known?
To take a commission on each sale, please make sure that the Marketplace extension and the WooCommerce plugin are installed and activated.
If you want to take a commission from vendors, please go to HivePress > Settings > Vendors (Hosts) > Selling section. Here you can set:
- Commission Rate - a commission percentage that will be charged on every purchase (e.g., set 10 if you want to charge 10% on each sale).
- Commission Fee - a fixed commission fee that will be charged on every purchase (e.g., set 2 if you want to charge $2 on each sale).
Also, it’s possible to set a custom commission rate and fee for each vendor. To do that, navigate to WordPress Dashboard > Vendors (Hosts) section and select any vendor. Then set the commission rate & fee in the corresponding fields.
If you want to take a commission from buyers, please go to HivePress > Settings > Users > Buying section. Here you can set:
- Commission Rate - the commission percentage that will be added to every purchase (e.g., set 10 and 10% will be added to the base price).
- Commission Fee - a fixed commission fee that will be added to every purchase (e.g., set 2 and $2 will be added to the base price).
Now you can take a commission from vendors or buyers or both at once.
Thank you for the information. I am currently running commission on both buyers and sellers. What am asking about would be similar to applying specific commissions to vendors. Instead of specific vendors, is there a way to add a unique commission to a specific listing. Some of my vendors listings are non-profits and I want the buyer commissions to be lower than for profit listings.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to set a commission per listing; it would require a custom implementation.
If customizations are required for your site, please try customizing it using the collection of code snippets Search · user:hivepress · GitHub and other developer resources, or consider hiring someone for custom work https://fvrr.co/32e7LvY
