Toppage.png Account Balance

Vendor-8.png

Account Balance is a page to help a merchant calculate vendor payment and commission. Because all the payments that buyers pay will go to a merchant's account, Account Balance lists the income of merchant and the commission once the order is placed at front store. And after a merchant manually pays to a vendor, the merchant then can add a payout in this page to calculate the remaining payment that the merchant needs to pay.

Therefore, this page contains two kinds of data - the merchant's income(namely order) and the merchant's expenditure(namely payout).

  • PayoutID: PayoutID covers both payout and order. Please note that each order also has its own OrderID which is not neccessary equal to its PayoutID.
  • Vendor Company: an income or a payout belongs to this vendor company.
  • Sales Period: Sale period for each payout; if a data is an order, there will be no sale period.
  • Order Total: Order total for each order, if a data is a payout, there will be no order total.
  • Commission: A vendor commission for each order according to the global or individual configuration. If a data is payout, there will be no commission.
  • Payment Amount: If a data is an order, this Payment Amount indicates a merchant's income which equals to order total subtracted by commission. If a data is a payout, this Payment Amount indicates an expenditure of merchant already paid to a vendor.
  • Date: Created date for both order and payout.
  • Payment: If a data is an order, this field indicates its OrderID. If a data is a payout, this field indicates a payment method.
