3. Earn commissions

The plugin generates vendor commissions for every order that is processed. Therefore, commissions are also collected for every renewal payment.

As per a normal order, you can set the commission rate based on the marketplace, vendor, or product settings. However, the difference is that commissions are recurring. Thus, you get to enjoy repeat sales and therefore a regular stream of revenue.

4. Receive email notifications
