Specs: Macintosh
I am trying to figure out out to set up the formula. I
have sales team who are paid by commission.

First 30 days, they get commission based on the
activation after sold date. Also, they get 2nd
commission from 31st to 60 days if the device shows
activation. If after 60 days, they are not eligible for
commission at any point.

From your post, it looks like you want a formula that returns a higher rate of commission if activation occurs within 30 days of the sold date, a lower rate if activation is between 31 and 60 days and no commission if the interval is longer.

If that is what you are looking for, then try this
Place Sold date in cell A6
Place Activated date in cell B6
and in C6 place this formula:


As you didn't say what the commissions are, I just used 10%, 5% 0%

To protect against an erroneous result when one or other date is empty add a test for empty cells, and the formula becomes:

=IF(OR(A6="", B6=""),"",IF(B6-A6<31,10%,IF(B6-A6<61,5%,0%)))

there won't be any % on commission. It is going to be a flat

$25 for first 30 days and $35 for between 31-60 days.

You can just replace the percentages in the formula with your values.

10% becomes 25, 5% becomes 35 and 0% becomes 0, and Format the cell with a currency format.

On re-reading your post, I am not clear - are there three dates or just two -
Can staff get both $25 & $35 commission, or is it one or the other.
