Hello @m-veitchx2-gmail, welcome to the Community! I'm so glad you were able to find us here so we may assist you.


First, you will want to make sure that the Real Estate Agent is set up in your QuickBooks account as either an Employee or as a Contractor.


Once they are set up in your account you can add in their commissions based on if they are an Employee or a Contractor/Vendor.


If you are categorizing them as an employee this article will be helpful in making sure you have set up everything to pay out the commission: Pay Employees a Commission


If they are classified as a Contractor then here is a helpful article that also provides a step-by-step guide to adding a Vendor Bill + a video that I find super helpful: Enter and Pay Bills
