Agent Commission

(redirected from Agent Commissions)

Agent Commission

A form of payment to an agent in which the agent receives a percentage of the value of each transaction that a client orders. Commissions are seen as advantageous to a client because if the client does not make orders, then he/she does not have to pay an agent commission. However, commissions create an incentive for agents to make as many transactions as possible. See also: Fee.
