Figuring out how to record a specific workflow

I run a specific service which I am not quite sure how to record into the QBO
My client is an online retailer, he buys his goods on Amazon and sells them on eBay (Drop-shipping business). For the purchase of the goods he uses my credit card in order to earn the cashback that this card pays. In return for using my card, the client pays me a portion of the cashback.
How do I report this sort of income in my books and QBO?
What should be the workflow and paper trail in terms of invoicing,etc?
My client pays off the card balance directly from his bank account using bill-pay service.
Also, is this a normal taxable income or categorized as other-income?

The only income you have is the commission he pays you. When you get paid use a sales receipt with an item linked to a commission earned income account to record the receipt of the payment.


You client treats your CC as if it were his own, he creates the CC type account in his books, and records charges and payments.
