You know that makes some sense. For me though i can say it all falls on the "yardtards" putting the order together. I think we got 4 deliveries one day 3 of which were for wrong or forgotten mats.I think my lumber rep gets salary, plus 10% bonus for every order he screws up. Another 10% bonus for every unusable peice of crap board that he sends me, :furious: and another 5% for every item that I order that he doesn't write down and put on my delivery ticket.
When pricing several suppliers for total material costs on a project,I oftened wondered if the sales person had to take a cut in% to make a sale.I am in outside sales for a siding/roofing type distributor. All our pay is commision. We get a draw of X dollars per month. Earn more than X in a month you get a check end of month, earn less and you go in the hole and hope to make it up next month. Every single item pays no matter how big or small, all based on profit tiers. There is a minimum profit margin to qualify for commision. (i.e. have not made a dime on an roofing shingle in over a year lmao.) Also penalized for 60 and 90 day payments, after 120 days late I get nothing. I've had plenty of 6 figure accounts that I busted my butt for go over 120 days, lots of work for no pay but it's part of the deal. It is tough, tough stuff so hug your salesman tomorrow. :thumbsup:

Also,if say,you cover my territory,and I call the orders in myself,do you still get your%.
That's the wat it should be.:thumbsup: Helps to put a Kybosh on back stabbing.You are correct, when I drop price I reduce or lose my cut.
If I am your sales rep (I established the account and service you) If you go to the counter or call the office I still get my cut.
