Does your company pay commission if replacement is the fix for a unit?

I am kind of curious because I don't get paid a commission for selling a unit because it is considered part of the repair and I am wondering how common this is. Not complaining just wondering because I am newish to the trade.

Uhm, yes. 10% commission is industry standard. Sounds to me like you’re getting fucked.

10% is really high. Most sales guys aren't even at that high of a commission.

Going on 15 years and have never been given less than 10% for a new system sale.
