Attribute sale to staff

While you're processing an order on Shopify POS, you can attribute a sale or items in a sale to staff from the cart or from the Smart Grid. If you want to attribute a sale to staff, then you have to add staff to the sale before completing the order. You can search for the staff by typing in the name or scrolling through your staff list to select the staff name. Recently attributed staff names appear at the top when you search staff.

You can track your staff's performance and sales attribution by using the Retail sales by staff attributed to sale report. For example, if you offer commission to your staff, then you can track their commission in the report.
