i.e. we are a SaaS company to the hospitality industry and charge X% of the transactions that going through the software) can I use product for this?

    Matthias, We have this same problem in loading our real estate listings as "products".   I noticed that Pipedrive is advertising to real estate agents more lately. This will be an issue for ALL agents. Can you add this simple percentage (%) field to the field options rather than having a "work-around"??

    Sorry, I'm only a Pipdrive user. I just found this post and wanted to help a bit...
    I hope that the Pipdrive developers will answer on your request too.

    @Tyrone and @Scott Krause unfortunately there are no calculating fields in Pipedrive at the moment, I'll pass on your feedback :)

    Right now you'd have to create these custom fields and fill it in manually or indeed work with an automated solutions and third parties that pull out the information, calculate it and then put it back in.

    I too would love this field, I am a mortgage broker and get paid a percentage of the deal amount.  I would think that there are many industries working on a percentage basis.  Well worth investing some time in, my bet would that there would be a big take up of this field.

    @Matthias Willberg  Thank you for referring to our video!  :-) And sorry, that it is not in english. We are focussed on the German speaking market and it is still an USP to deliver content in our language. But you are perfectly right: You can use Integromat easily to do such a calculation.

    @Tyrone Please let me know if I can be of any assistance! This is done in a couple of minutes.
