Payroll Rules (What to payout?)

Union's Payroll Rules are split between two worlds, Performances (live content) and Replays (video library content). You will want to create a payroll rule for each Payroll Category you created. For more details on how to get your payroll setup, visit our video tutorial and use our help desk article to follow along! 

Performances are based off of any performance that has been created in Union. You can now customize different payouts for these live performances based on the attendance type (online or in-person). The Replays side of the pond is as if you own a record label - residual payments on things that have previously been recorded. Let's look at the different rules you can attribute. 

Performances (live content)

Per Performance (In-Person or Hybrid): Base rate pay per class or session provided whether in-person or online).

Per Performance (Online Only): Base rate if you pay your teachers differently for online only classes.

*Note: Please be sure to set the price for both, even if the value is the same. 

Per Performance Registration (In-Person): Rate based on how many students were registered for an in-person performance. *Note: by default this is determined by registrations only. If you would like to payout on Redeemed registrations only, you will need to update this in your Settings > Payroll

Per Performance Registration (Online): Rate based on how many students were registered for a virtual  performance. *Note: by default this is determined by registrations only. If you would like to payout on Redeemed registrations only, you will need to update this in your Settings > Payroll

Percentage of Performance Revenue: If you would like to pay your teachers a percentage per performance specific settled revenue. 

Replays

Directly below your new Perfromance rules you, you have the option to create rules for paying your teachers out on their replays.

Per Replay Registration: Rate based on how many students registered (note: by default this is determined by registrations only. If you would like to payout on Redeemed registrations only, you will need to update this in your Settings > Payroll)

Per Replay Estimated Delivered Minute: ability to pay a specific rate (e.g. $0.003) per replay minute watched

Percentage of Replay Revenue: If you would like to pay your teachers a percentage per replay specific settled revenue

Revenue % after Profit

Percentage of Revenue after Profit: Ability to payout a percentage of the combined performance and replay settled revenue (within the payroll period) after a teacher's base payout (e.g. performance) is deducted from the the combined performance and replay settled revenue.

  • When Percentage of Revenue after Profit is turned on, the percentage provided represents a percentage of revenue payout for the combined performance and replay settled revenue. Any performance or replay specific revenue share percentages provided above the Percentage of Revenue on Profit are not taken into account when running payroll.
  • The ability to set a Settled Revenue Cap per Period can help ensure teachers aren't credited too much settled revenue per payroll period due to abnormal or rare circumstances, such as settling annual subscription revenue with very few registrations. E.g. if the Settled Revenue Cap per Period is set to $200 and the teacher receives $1200 in settled revenue within a specific payroll period, the Percentage of Revenue after Profit will be applied to $200, not $1200.

NOTE: All settled revenue and % of revenue dollar amounts represent gross revenue before Stripe and Union fees.
