report an array of ways they
pay their sales teams. Most
(57%) pay a combination
of salary plus commission.
The average commission
rate is 6.6%. Less than
one-in-four integration
companies (23%) pay base
salary only, while only 10%
pay their sales team solely
via commission. In many
cases the company owners
themselves handle all sales
transactions and therefore
they have zero sales commission
payouts.

sales staff s in various ways

of $650 in 2020.

higher than the median
bonus of $650 in 2020.
Lastly, benefi ts have
become an increasingly
important element of
