Integration Guide: Commissions and Frontend Submissions

The EDD Frontend Submissions extension and the EDD Commissions automatically integrate together to make it easy to pay Vendors commissions for sales of their products. 

Set Up Instructions:

EDD Commissions and EDD Frontend Submissions extensions should both be installed and activated in the "Plugins" page in your WordPress Dashboard. 

How the integration works:

When your Vendors submit a new product for sale through Frontend Submissions, commissions will automatically be enabled for that product and the commission recipient will automatically be set to that Vendor. Their commission rate in the product itself will be left blank. This means that their commission rate will fall back to their User Rate, which you can configure for each Vendor by editing their user profile under: Users → User's Global Rate

If that User Rate is also left blank, the rate entered as the default for Commissions will be used. This can be set under: Downloads → Settings → Extensions → Commissions → Default rate

If you wish to override the Site Default and User Default rates for any individual product, set the rate in the product itself by editing that product and going to the "Commissions" metabox. There, you can enter a commission rate for that Vendor for that specific product only.

Note: The Product rate is used first. If it is blank, then the User rate is used. If that is also blank, the Site default rate is used.

Setting Vendor Paypal Emails upon registration

If you are paying your Commissions through Paypal and want to make sure your Vendors enter a Paypal email when registering, there is a field available when both Frontend Submissions and Commissions are active. Navigate to EDD FES → Registration Form → Add Extension Created Fields → Paypal Email
