Hi Ygk,

The first part of your posting is straight-forward OFBiz functionality.

As far as I can tell, your second part has no order and inventory
transactions. And thus no invoices to and payments from the customers.
You'll probably receive a statement from your supplier stating the total
amount of the commission, and if more details are provided an overview
listing per line item:

   - the customer name
   - the order amount
   - the commission amount.

The basic way to process such is through accounting, by registering the
statement as a Credit Invoice from the supplier party.
If the 'customer' details are provided, you could consider registering them
as parties and include them in your marketing and promotion activities.

Best regards,

Pierre Smits
