Many professions have fairly up-front billing, making it fast and easy to create invoices with the right invoicing software. However, many self-employed also work on sales commission and are looking for the right solution for including this on their invoices.
If you’re not sure, commission refers to any compensation (additional or base) that is earned based on the amount of sales an individual makes. In other words, the more sales made, the higher the commission received.
Commission is generally used as an incentive - employers offer the commission on top of a salary to encourage employees to sell more. This can also apply to a self-employed individual with a contract to work with larger companies.
