The DX1 Commissions feature allows you to set up and configure default Commission Types and then apply them to MU Quotes and Deals at any point which enables you to clearly see how the commissions will impact overall deal profitability.


DX1 Commissions allow you to:

  • Set up default Commission Types for the dealership

  • Assign a Primary, Secondary and F&I Salesperson to each deal for more accurate commission reporting and deal management.

  • Automatically apply and where necessary split commissions if a default commission type is set.

  • View the estimated unit and invoice profitability with commission included.

  • Reporting after the deal has been posted.
