Combination Compensation Plan


A combination compensation plan is a type of sales force compensation plan that offers a base salary plus some proportion of incentive pay consisting of commissions, bonuses, or both. When salary plus commission is used, the commissions are typically tied to sales volume or profitability, just as with a straight commission plan. The only difference is that the commissions are smaller in a combination plan than when the salesperson is compensated solely by commission.[1]
