    import java.util.Scanner;// program uses class Scanner
     
    	public class Assign4
    	{
    	    public static void main(String[] args)
    	    {
    	        new Assign4 ();
    	        Scanner input = new Scanner( System.in );
     
    	        double total; // sum of values
    	        double Commission=0; // Commission earned
    	        double earnings=0;// number with decimal point for average
    	        double bonus=0;// bonus amount for high value items
     
    	        total = 0; // initialize total
    	        int valueCounter = 0; // initialize loop counter
     
    	        bonus = 0; // initialize bonus
    	        int bonusCounter = 0; //initialize bonus counter
     
    	        System.out.print( "Enter item Value, or -1 to quit: " );
    	        double value = input.nextDouble();
     
    	        // loop until sentinel value read from user
    	        while ( value != -1 )
    	        {
    	            total = total + value; // add value to total
    	            valueCounter = valueCounter + 1; // increment counter
     
    	            // prompt for input and read next value from user
    	            System.out.print( "Enter item Value, or -1 to quit: " );
    	            value = input.nextDouble();
     
     
    	} // end while
     
    	// termination phase
    	// if user entered at least one amount...
    	if ( valueCounter != 0 )
    	{
    	    if ( value>=350.00 )
    	    {
    	        bonusCounter = bonusCounter + 1; // bonus counter
    	        // calculate commission with bonus earnings for high value item
    	        Commission = ((double) total /100)* 9+20;
    	        total = (double) total;
    	        earnings = (double)Commission + 200;
    	    }
    	    else if(value<350.00)
    	    {
    	        // calculate commission of total amount
    	        Commission = ((double) total /100)* 9;
    	        total = (double) total;
    	        earnings = (double)Commission + 200;
    	    }
    	}
    	// display everything
    	System.out.printf("Items Sold : " + valueCounter);
    	System.out.printf("\nTotal Amount: $%.2f\n", total);
    	System.out.printf("Commission: $%.2f\n", Commission);
    	System.out.printf("High profitable items: " +bonusCounter);
    	System.out.printf("\nBonus : $%.2f\n", bonus);
    	System.out.printf("Earnings: $%.2f\n", earnings);
    	// end if

    double bonus=0; // bonus initialised to zero
    ....
    bonus = 0; // totally pointless line of code
    Where in the rest of your code do you change the value of bonus?

    You say that the bonus variable should have the value 20. But the bonus variable is used twice in the code posted, both times it is assigned the value 0. Therefore it is impossible for it to have a value of 20.
