How can I pay commission based employees?

My employees will not be hourly- they are commission based. How do I do that in the payroll part of the scheduling app?

You can add their commission amount to the “Additional” column in "Run Payroll" tab of the Payroll section of your Square Dashboard.

This field allows you to put in a dollar amount to send to your employees in place of, or in addition to, their hourly salary. 👍

 

Have a look at this video tutorial for step-by-steps on adding commissions to the "Additional" column.

Re: Commission base employees

Payroll isn't available in Oklahoma yet, is there a way I can do this with out using payroll? I need to be able to accept my trainee's payments, but get them to her. Also, I use the capital program, how does that work for accepting employee payments?

Re: Commission base employees

I'm afraid your commissions will need to be managed outside of Square, @malbake.

 

In regards to your Capital repayments, they come from a fixed percentage of your daily credit card sales, so regardless of the employee, the payment will be based on the gross amount processed through your account. Hope that helps clarify!

Re: Commission base employees

I'm a salon owner and have an employee that works the desk and takes clients. She's paid hourly and commission for the the walk-in clients during her work hours. I've "categorized' the "salon services" and take payment at the desk. How do I (or can I) add the "services" she does in her payroll on a comission (50%) basis?

Re: Commission base employees

Hmm, might need a little more info, @HairLounge93108. Are you not able to calculate the desired amount and add it to the “Additional” column?

Re: Commission base employees

It would be nice to assign a service to a specific employee and then have that calculated and automatically pay their 50% commission without needing to figure that seperately.  Something to consider in future developments. Salons and spa employees are generally independent contractors and get paid a commisssion/percentage of the service they do. If you plan on doing payroll please consider these in your options. Also, when reatail is in the spa environment the "employee" generally recieves a 5-10% commission on retail sales as well.
