You can view how much commission a sales representative has earned by checking the Profit by Sales Representative report. The Data header, Commission Amount, will display the sales representative's Sale Commission % for each sale. Sale Commission % is applied to the sale total including tax. 

The Profit by Sales Representative report will show both the total commission amount to pay to a sales rep for the specified date range, as well as the total commission to pay out to all sales reps.
