### Method 1 – Calculate the Sales Commission with a Simple Formula in Excel

We will use a dataset that contains information about the sales amount of **January **and **February **of some salespeople. They sold different products in these two months and each product has a different commission rate. The base commission is **3**%. So, with all these pieces of information, we will calculate the sales commissions for **January **and **February**.

**STEPS:**

- Select
**Cell G6**and copy the formula:

`=E6*($D6+$C$12)`

The general form of the formula can be written as:

**=Sales Amount*(Commission Rate+Base Rate)**

In the formula, we have locked **Cell C12** using the **dollar ($)** sign in front of both **column index** and **row index**. Also, locked the **column index** of **Cell D6**.

- Press
**Enter**and drag the**Fill Handle**down to get the sales commission for**January**.

- Drag the
**Fill Handle**to the right to find the sales for**February**.

- You will find the sales commission for
**January**and**FebruaryÂ**together.

- If we have a
**Bonus Factor**for each month, then, we need to multiply it with the previous formula. - Apply the below formula in
**Cell G6**:

`=E6*($D6+$C$12)*G$12`

Here, we have multiplied the bonus factor. In the formula, we have locked the **row index **of **Cell G12 **using the **dollar ($) **sign.

- Hit
**Enter**and drag the**Fill Handle**right to copy the formula.

- Use the
**Fill HandleÂ**down.

- You will see the sales commission for the two months.

### Method 2 – Combine IF and VLOOKUP Functions to Calculate Sales Commissions

We will use a dataset that contains information about the **Sales **and **Target **amount of some salespeople. If they achieve the **Target, **they get a commission. Each tier has a different commission rate.

**Steps:**

- Select
**Cell F5**and insert the formula:

`=IF(D5>=E5,VLOOKUP(C5,$B$12:$C$14,2,FALSE)*D5,"Target Not Filled")`

- The logic is
**D5>=E5**. That means the**Sales**amount will have to be greater than or equal to the**TargetÂ**amount. - The second argument of the formula is
**VLOOKUP(C5,$B$12:$C$14,2,FALSE)*D5**. It means if the**Sales**amount is greater than or equal to the**Target**amount, then the formula will look for the**Commission Rate**of tier**X**in the**Lookup Table**and multiply it with the**SalesÂ**amount. - If a salesman fails to achieve the
**Target**amount, the formula will show**Target Not Filled**.

- Press
**Enter**and drag down the**Fill Handle**.

- You will see results like the picture below.

### Method 3 – Apply a Nested Excel IF Function to Create a Formula for Determining Sales Commissions

In this dataset, we have the **Sales **amounts for **Mike**, **John**, and **Tom**. Each salesman receives a different commission rate. The **Commission Rate **table is used here just to show the commission rate. We will not use it inside the formula.

**Steps:**

- Copy the following formula in
**Cell E5**:

`=IF(B5="Mike",(D5*0.1),IF(B5="John",(D5*0.15),IF(B5="Tom",(D5*0.25))))`

- If
**Cell B5**is**Mike**, then**Cell D5**will be multiplied by**0.****1**Â because the commission rate for Mike is**10**%. - If it is
**John,**then it will be multiplied by**0.****15**. - Otherwise, it will be multiplied by
**0.****25**.

- Drag the
**Fill HandleÂ**down.

- You will see the sales commission like in the picture below.

- Select the dataset.

- Go to the
**Insert**tab and click on**PivotTable**.

- A message box will pop up. Click
**OK**to proceed.

- A new sheet will appear. You will find the
**PivotTable Fields**on the right side of the excel workbook. - Select
**Salesman**and**Sales Commission**. - The
**Salesman**will be in the**â€˜Rows**â€™ section and the**Sales Commission**will be put in the**â€˜Values**â€™ section.

- You will see the
**Sum of Sales Commission**in the new sheet.

- You can add the
**Sales**from the**PivotTable Fields**to get the sum of the total sales.

- You will see the sum of both the
**Sales Commission**and**SalesÂ**amount.

I am from Nigeria and I bought an excel comission sales tracker sheet from Etsy to track and calculate the monthly sales Comissions due to our Free lance comission referral partners

1) Can You enable and extend the sheet to take 1000 or more sales persons instead of the 100 it currently appears

2) Can You make the transaction dates in this exact format and order
