Trouble with Arrayformula and sumfilter or sumproduct

I'm having trouble finding a sum of data filtered for two different conditions (date, and name)

The "Fees List" sheet contains the bulk of the data that I'm looking at. The "Rider Payouts" is where I'm trying to use the functions. In column B is a SUMIF function that gets the total $ per name for the whole Fees List sheet. I want to also be able to find totals by date, or even/especially by date range. 

I tried both of the following formulas, in columns F and G, to see which I could get to work:
=ArrayFormula(sumproduct(('Fees List'!B$5:B=A3)*('Fees List'!A$5:A=H$1)*'Fees List'!G$5:G))

=ArrayFormula(SUM(IF('Fees List'!B$5:B=A3,IF('Fees List'!A$5:A=G$1, 'Fees List'!G$5:G,0),0)))

Both formulas result in 0 for all rows.

I put a date in G1 as a reference point to try and filter by that date. I'd actually ideally like to be able to use a range of dates, but I wasn't sure how to do that, and wanted to get the rest of the function working before I played around with that.

Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong? A syntax problem or reference error??
