    Cool sales compensation

    First, have set pricing for equipment. A simple accessory sheet with add on prices for duct modifications and IAQ products makes it really simple.
    Then 5% of gross sale if they perform other duties and recieve a small salary.
    8% of gross sale if they want straight commission.

    If they are worth 10% then fine. But you better have your pricing set up for that.
    Good luck staying "competitive".

    Crap is so bad here you could offer 25% and you won't get any takers cause nobody is buying.

    10% was just a sarcastic jab at the economic climate.
