    I need to find a solution to a problem asap. For u that have a sales person how do you pay them? And if they sell a lawn maint. job that is a per time charge how would you figure that out when u dont know if ur going to cut it 10 or 30 times. ANyone have any ideas how to correct this issue, it would be much appreciated?

    Repsectfully, Jason

    Low base salary, % of commision. We calculate it at 10%, that is what we complete. ie: Customer wants mowing $100, and bed maintenance $100, we do beds twice in one month and mow 4 times then at the end of the month he makes $60 commission. Never prepaid, always on what we do, even on the packaged deals, he gets paid when the job is completed.

    Computer does it all, when I add a new client it has a section for sales associate and then if there is a percent of commission, then go into payroll at the end of the month shows me how much in commission I am supposed to give, then I turn it over to payroll company and its done.

    Both, you pay them say 35k a year and then 3-5% commision on what they sell.
