Affiliate earned amount before taxing

Boby shared this idea 5 years ago
Under Consideration

It seems that affiliate earning amount is now earned from the complete amount (hosting subscription+tax). This can not be good , it should be earned from the amount without tax (before taxing). This is only fair as earned amount should be from my sales and not from the tax which is government part. So for example if my part is like 100 and there is tax of 25 %, affiliate amount should be earned from 100 and not from 125. I think this is pretty reasonable.

The same way it should be credited for usage afterwards. After this amount is earned it is apllied as credit on this user invoice, but now it is deducted from hosting subscription+tax and it should be deducted pnly from subscription part.

Or at least we should be able to choose how affiliate earned amount and afterwards this credit, is applied.

I have been asking Matt for this in support tickets several times. But he don't want to do it. :( We need to be able to add affiliate earnings to clients credit balance without this credit being taxed when automatically deducted on the next invoice. We are loosing money because of this.

So you are saying that credited amount is deducted from the invoice amount without tax ? But actually I think this is fine then. When affiliate earns amount , it seems it is based on how you set recurring amount for the service. If you set this to be displayed without tax, then earned commision is from amount wothout tax.

And when this amount is credited to the affiliate user invoice, it should be again deducted from the amount without tax, right ?

Because if it is deducted from the final amount with tax, then we woun't be able to have clear display of final payment amount details. It is confusing to describe this . Maybe example would be good.

EXAMPLE

If on invoice we have displayed :

subtotal : 100

tax (25%) : 25

credit : 25

total : 100

This is confusing because credit is deducted from 125, and this way we don't have precise details on final total amount for paying which in my country is a must.

But when this would be this way:

subtotal : 100

credit : 25

subtotal after credit: 75

tax (25%) : 25

total : 93.75

This is better in my case as it is all clear to understand.

But I don't know which was is the way WHMCS is working.
