Definition: Sales Commission

Sales commission can be defined as the commission that one gets for the amount of sales he/her has achieved. Sales commission is given in addition to the fixed salary to the sales person. It acts as an incentive to the sales people & encourages them to obtain more and more sales for the company.

For example if we say a person will get 1% of his/her sale as sales commission & if the total sales done by that person are worth Rs. 100000, he/she will get Rs.1000 as the sales commission.

Sales commission can be paid to a distributor or wholesaler as well for achieving the required sales.
