Set Up Deductions

Master admin can easily set up deductions on the Deductions page. There are various types of deductions that would come out of an agent’s commission or the brokerage's commission that would be paid to a third party. Some examples of deductions for your office might be charitable contributions, a home warranty, seller or buyer credits, or paying a transaction coordinator or an assistant.

Once you’ve setup your deduction types, they will be available on the Manage Commissions page.

To access the Deductions page:

  1. Click your name in the upper right corner then "Admin / Settings".
  2. Click “Deductions Types” from the Financials section of the left menu. Once there, you’ll see the ability to add deduction types.

There are two parts to specifying a deduction:

  1. Enter the deduction amount in the appropriate field.
  2. Specify a payee (whom the deduction should be payable to). Enter their name and contact information in the Payable To field.
