Sales Commission: Learn
Sales commissions are paid to employees or companies that sell merchandise by interacting with customers. The commission is meant to motivate sales persons to sell more. A commission may be paid in addition to a salary or instead of a salary.
Some common places that commissions are paid are: in real estate marketing, insurance, and retails sales of electronics and major appliances. Any time a sale is made, someone might be making a commission, and the larger the typical sale, the more likely the salesperson makes a commission.
The commission amount is usually calculated as a percentage of the sales that the salesperson made.
For example, there is a company that sells a major appliance for $550, and their salespeople make a 2% commission on top of their salary. Every time a salesperson sells the appliance, they receive a commission of 550*0.02 = $11.
