Learning more about your performance and commissions

  • Updated

Who is this article for?

This article will be useful to you if you are a partner on PartnerStack looking to use Reporting to get an in-depth look at how your partnerships are performing and where your commissions are coming from.

Reporting gives you the ability to view and download comprehensive data on your earned commissions, where the commissions are coming from, and a lot more. This can help you learn what is working well and what isn't so that you can improve your performance. 

To find Reporting, log into your PartnerStack account and click the "Reporting" tab in your top menu bar. 

If you're looking for statistics specific to one of your programs, check out your program's Performance tab.

Reporting dashboard overview

The Reporting tab Dashboard overview gives you a quick look at some important program statistics:

  • Unpaid Signups: a count of unpaid customers in the selected timeframe
  • Paid Customers: a count of paid customers in the selected timeframe
  • Transaction Total: a sum of all transactions (revenue) made by your customers in the selected timeframe
  • Commissions Total: a sum of all commissions earned in the selected timeframe


The graph shows the above data points in chart form, by the selected timescale, timeframe, and program. If no filter is applied, it will use monthly as the default timescale and the last 6 months as the default timeframe for all programs you are partnered with.

The dashboard overview table shows the following data:

  • Created at date, according to selected timescale and timeframe. Currently, the date shows the first of the month, but it is in reference to all data from that month.
  • Leads submitted
  • Deals submitted
  • Unpaid signups
  • Unique paid signups (aka unique customers)
  • Transactions
  • Commissions (count of commissions)
  • Commission total (sum of commissions)

Data in the Dashboard overview updates every 15 minutes.

Filtering the Dashboard overview

The Dashboard overview can be filtered by the following options:

  • Time scale: by default, the time scale is monthly. It can be further filtered by date, week, month, quarter, and year.
  • Time frame: by default, the frame is in the past six months, but it can be filtered down to a custom time frame
  • Program name: you can select one or multiple companies that you are working with, or select none and see data across all programs.

Commissions overview 

The Commissions overview gives insight into where your commissions are coming from. It can be found by clicking on the Commissions tab on the Reporting page.PartnerStack_2021-11-22_12-03-39__1_.png

The table shows all individual line items for each commission earned. To view additional columns, scroll to the right.

At this time, columns cannot be hidden or removed from within the table. If you wish to hide columns, we suggest you download the data and remove the undesired columns in your desired data analysis tool.
