As much as he/she can and as little as the company has to pay. I'd say it depends on the setup,what industry, where on the planet and how much responsibility for the quote the salesperson has. Is he/she on salary plus a commission or commision only? How well connected to the industy the company services is the salesperson? Does the salesperson make quotes on behalf of the company and what is their track record?Even salespeople have to eat but how well they eat should be reflected in their ability. I'm not a salesperson and I mostly felt they were overpaid however one has to recognize "no sales, no income for anybody". Is this a repeat order and have you negotiated commissions on the repeats? The company needs to budget for sales expense in their quotes and at some level in this economy that can cost sales but if it is not accounted for up front it can mean no profit in the job. As on adviser around here used to say "might not be too interesting."Good luck with it.-Meltedmetal
