Besides base salaries, commissions, penalties, and bonuses, you can configure exceptional commissions for employees to be calculated in salaries.

They can be applied to specific products, services, and categories. Please note that the ability to create, edit, and delete exceptional commissions is regulated by a special right in the role settings — "Can configure exceptional commissions for payroll calculation".

Exceptional commissions are exceptions to the basic commissions and have a priority. The prioritization hierarchy looks as follows: the rule from the service/product is of the highest priority, next is the rule from the service/product category, and then the rule from the employee profile.

Example 1. The "For creating a sale" rule of $10 is configured in the employee profile. An exceptional commission for a sold product is set to $15 in the product dialog window, and another exceptional commission of $20 is applied to the product category. In this case, the employee will receive $15 because the product has a higher priority.

Example 2. The "To the specialist for a service in the work order" rule of $20 is configured in the employee profile. An exceptional commission of 5% of the amount is set in the "Smartphone Repair" services category. In this case, the employee will receive 5% of the amount for all services from the Smartphone Repair category (not $20) because the category has a higher priority.

Please note that for exceptional commissions to function, a basic payroll calculating rule for the relevant event must be set up in the employee profile. Exceptional commissions can be applied to all "product/service" events in work orders and sales

For example, you have set exceptional commissions in products but have not set the "For a product to a seller" rule in the employee profile. In this case, employees will not receive commissions for the products sold because the rules for the sales event have not been applied to them.

If you want to increase or decrease exceptional commissions for particular employees, or if you want some employees not to receive additional commissions, you need to set the relevant coefficients on the "Payroll rules" tab in the employee profiles.
