How to set buyer commission added on top of wholesale price

Our revenue model (cost+) adds commission on top of the vendor’s price, say 20% commission on a $10 product, buyer pays $12.
Right now the only option I see is that 20% being deducted from the $10.
How can I change that?

Module “Mark-up on products in the category” for Cs-Cart Multi-Vendor

The module allows you to set a margin on a category or subcategory in a fixed amount or as a percentage of the cost. The markup is automatically applied to new and edited products.

Marketplace commission

Many marketplaces earn precisely on the commission for sale. In the basic version of the platform, the commission is set up directly for the product, manually. Of course, this can be done with the help of mass editing of products, but it still takes time.

And it is unlikely that any of the sellers, especially large ones, will voluntarily agree to manually add your commission to their price. It’s too long, troublesome, and expensive. After all, a person who will devote his time to editing products will need to pay for this work.

You will have to take the commission setting for the products into your own hands. And already you will need to look for an employee who will track the appearance of new products and edit the price in them taking into account your commission. And, most likely, such a person will need more than one, because the number of sellers, and with it the goods, will constantly grow.

Functionality of the module “Mark-up for products in the selected category”

We offer a simple and effective solution to the problem of setting up a commission or creating the necessary margin – the module “Margin on goods in the selected category”. It allows you to set up a commission not for each product individually, but for the entire category.

You can choose in what form the commission will be charged:

  • In a fixed amount in the currency of the marketplace (for example, 500 rubles for each product);
  • As a percentage of the value of the product.

After you set up the margin, the price of all products in the category is recalculated taking into account the established margin. Moreover, this margin is automatically applied to new products in the category and to those products that the vendor edited manually or uploaded via import.

Mark-up on the seller’s category

You can set a margin on both the marketplace category and the seller category. This means that you will be able to offer individual sellers an individual commission or even remove the markup for a particular vendor. This will allow you to offer more favorable and interesting conditions to the sellers you want to attract to your site.

The module “Mark-up for products in the selected category” helps you reduce the staff needed to maintain the operation of the marketplace, which means saving money on wages. In addition, it allows you to customize individual conditions for different sellers, attracting them to your site.
