We are pleased to announce our new feature: Driver Commissions! Everything that we do here at Dashride, we do to help you automate your business so that you can work on your business, instead of in your business. You can focus on growth, and let the technology handle the day-to-day operations. The new commissions reporting is another tool you can use to make this happen. The commissions will automatically calculate how much you owe your drivers at any moment.Some of our larger customers have told us that they have full-time teams who work on these calculations every day. Our medium size customers, at best, spend hours each week. Now, with this new release, you can take those man-hours and refocus them on marketing or sales.For those of you who are looking to get started now, we’ve provided some basic information to get you started below.
The total commissions for each trip will be automatically calculated when a ride is marked as “completed.” The final amounts can be overridden at any time from the “Billing” section. You can set Driver Permission settings that apply company-wide or have it done on an individual basis.
You’ll need to go into the “Drivers” section and pull up a specific Driver profile. You will see a tab for “Commissions” where you can opt to override the default commissions.+Changing these values will not change the commissions for any other drivers.+
Whenever you pull up a ride in the “Billing > Unsettled” or “Billing > Settled” list, you will see a tab to view your commission totals.
For unsettled rides, you can adjust the commission algorithm in the left column, and click “Update”. The back-end will automatically re-calculate the total commission amounts, which you can review before settling the charge. Changing commission rates for an individual ride will not impact commissions for any other trips.
For settled rides, you can view the final commission amounts calculated, and you can edit these amounts in the right-hand column.
Also Note: These new commissions will also show up in your reports.
