Yes, this scenario is possible the following way:
1) set up a cron job -> more info in Tools > Integration > Cron job integration
2) activate the "Recurring commissions
" feature at Configuration > Features > Recurring Commissions
3) Set up a recurring commission in a campaign
for any 'per sale' or 'per action' type of commission.
4) Afterwards, navigate to Transactions > Commissions
and press Add transaction
. Fill in the requested fields and check in the "Support multi tier
" option. After pressing the 'Save' button in the 'Add transaction' window a commission will be added into Transactions > Commissions and a 'Recurring commission' (prescription of recurrence) will appear in Transactions > Recurring commissions.
NOTE: if you do not check in the "Support multi tier
" option, the prescription of recurring commission will not be created in Transactions > Recurring commissions.
You will need to take care of these recurring payments, because as you manually started it, you will also need to manually stop it.
