Direct Bill: Commission Statement Processing
There are a number of options than can be used, and they vary in terms of how much work is involved, and how much detail you can get from the system.
A key question is “Do you pay producers commission based on individual sales?” If you do, you must record those sales as individual invoices, so you can pay them correctly. That requires creating invoices through, Commission Download, Commission Builder, or individually.
