What information will the apparel brand get up front about the Sales Rep to ensure they are the best fit?


You will have the opportunity to speak to the rep by phone or video conference, meet in person if requested, and review the other lines the rep represents to ensure the rep is surrounded by compatible product lines to yours.




What is the typical commission percentage that a sales rep will receive?


The going market commission rate for a fashion sales rep is between 12% and 15%. This is the amount of commission you will pay out to your sales rep for any store orders that he/she books for you.




Does the commission structure vary based on the selling channel (for example: department store versus small boutique)?


You can negotiate different commission rates for different selling channels, but usually the sales rep prefers to keep the same commission structure across all selling channels to keep things simple. This will be agreed upon by both parties and outlined in your contract together.
