If it's from the same company, no.  If the commission is coming from your company, the IRS put in a policy in its final regulations on the Section 199A deduction that if you receive contractor income from the same source as your employee wages, that "contractor" income is actually the same nature as wages and does not qualify for QBI.  

If the bonus comes from a different party, however, then the contractor income can qualify for QBI.
