Can I customize payroll amounts while running payroll?

You can customize the commission amount while running payroll, Userccohen. I'm here to guide you.


First, you'll have to set up the commission item for each employee. Here's how:

  1. Click Payroll, then go to the Employees tab.
  2. Select the employee.
  3. Click the Pencil icon next to Pay.
  4. Under How much do you pay Employee?, click the Pencil icon.
  5. Tick the Commission box.
  6. Click Done twice.

Then, when you run the payroll, it'll let you customize the amount. You'll enter the figure manually in the COMMISSION field.


For more information, you can refer to this article: Pay employees a commission.
