Questions ?

A sales agent is an individual or a business that sells products or services on behalf of a manufacturer, supplier, or service provider. Different to a wholesaler or distributor, the agent doesn’t usually buy or store stock and orders are fulfilled by the business they are working with as a sales partner.

Traditional sales agents complete the full sales process and close the sales, but in today’s modern marketplaces they can also be lead generators, telesales agents, online sellers, or affiliates.

Agents can be a self-employed individual, a sales agency, or a business looking for additional products or services to add to their existing sales offers to customers.

Reward for sales is usually a commission based on a percentage of the sale value, a percentage of the profit, or a fixed amount for each sale. Other rewards schemes can include a monthly retainer, bonuses, and incentives. The agreed payments can be totally flexible, which is why the sales agent model is becoming increasingly popular with both businesses and sales professionals.

Sales agents work for themselves, on a full or part-time basis, paying their own taxes and expenses. They can be individuals or a business. The key point is that they are independent and not employed by the company whose products or services they are selling, it’s a business partnership.

Agents are responsible for paying their own taxes, national insurance, and expenses. They invoice the businesses they work with, usually monthly, to receive their commission or other agreed payments for sales.

Many agents work as a sales partner for more than one business and create ranges of sales offers from different companies.

The companies that sales agent sell for are called principals. Principals pay the sales agent commission at an agreed rate for closing a sale or other agreed actions such as providing a qualified lead that becomes a customer.

It is very important that both agent and principal have agreed what will trigger commission or other payments. For example, a sale may generate commission for the agent when an order is signed, when a payment is received, when delivery has been accepted, or when a subscription has been charged.

Commission rates are normally calculated as a percentage of the revenue value of the sale. The percentage can vary depending upon the product, value of a sale, the length of the sales cycle, the profit margins, and whether the sales agent can gain repeat business from the same customer.

As a guide, if you are selling low volume high priced items and you have to wait for the sale to go through a long process, then 20% – 30+% is reasonable.

Bear in mind you may have to wait longer for your commission and probably put in more work to earn it.

High volume, low priced products, such as consumables where there is repeat business, may have a much lower percentage commission because the manufacturer’s profit margins are lower. The large quantities sold can mean the earning potential is high.

Commission payments are often negotiable and should be included in your discussions with business principals.

Unless the product being sold requires a qualification, for example some financial products, you do not need any qualifications to work as a sales agent.

Having qualifications or experience in a sector can make you more attractive to business principals looking for sales agents.

Sales opportunities where a qualification or experience is required or desirable by the principal will always include the information in the advert.

Desirable skills for sales agents are: sales skills, self-management and motivation, good written and verbal communication, planning and organising, and the ability to motivate yourself.

Browse the opportunities on this page, view the full page advert, and thoroughly read the details of the opportunity and the requirements for sales agents. Use the Apply Buttons to send your application directly to the business advertiser.

Spend time on your application, include relevant experience and your current sales activity.

Explain why you will be a good fit for the agent role.

Customise each application with information pertinent to the opportunity.

And remember, you are in competition with other agents that will be applying so make your application stand out.
You can make applying easier by registering with us and entering a profile, plus you can get many more benefits to boost your sales agent business. Register your profile now by visiting salesagents.uk/join-us.

You will find companies advertising for independent self-employed: traditional field sales agents who sell face to face, online sellers, affiliates, lead generators, and telesales, all rewarded by commission. You’ll also find companies looking for agents (self-employed or SMEs) that can take on a nationwide sales agency.

There are opportunities in popular general markets, selling to wide audiences to both B2B and B2C customers. You will also find opportunities in specialist, niche markets where specific knowledge or experience is required. We have opportunities suitable for all levels of experience and in a wide range of sectors.

When you start a dialogue with the principal advertising the opportunity you should include in your questions:

  • Sales history and current results for the products or services you will be selling.
  • The number of sales agents they currently have.
  • The sales results and commission payments their sales agents are achieving.
  • Ask if you could speak with a sales agent.
  • Definition of sale for commission purposes, e.g., a signed order, payment of invoice, a qualified lead that closes.
  • How long after a closed sale will you be paid.
  • Any exclusive sales area or type of customer.
  • Competition from other companies.

An agency agreement is a contract between you and the principal, where the terms and conditions of your relationship are agreed in writing. The principal usually provides the agency agreement, but it is important that you read it and understand the terms and conditions.

The agency agreement should cover all eventualities such as: what happens to outstanding orders and related commission if you end the relationship.
Commission payments, support from the principal, sales area exclusivity, and any sales targets should be included.

Making sure you are happy with the terms and conditions of the agreement is worth taking time over at the beginning of your relationship as it will prevent disagreements later on. You may wish to get the agreement checked over by a legal professional with experience of sales agency law.

If you sign-up as a premium agent you can get legal question answered by an expert legal team in agency law.

While we check that the content of the adverts meets our standards it is impossible for us to validate all the opportunities are exactly as advertised. Here we offer some guidelines when considering an opportunity.

If you want to receive commissions based on the sales ‘you’ make, rather than the sales team you recruit will make, you would be wise to steer clear of pyramid schemes network marketing, or multi-level marketing (MLM) recruitment schemes. When the emphasis is on recruiting people to sell, rather than finding customers, you will work very hard on recruiting and maintaining a sales team and you will depend on their sales to earn commission. This can be very hard work and for little or no reward.

A Company that advertises an agent role but require you to ‘buy’ stock or want you to pay to work for them, should be carefully considered before applying. A sales agent is not a reseller, they don’t keep stock. Sales agents take orders from customers and send the order to the business principal to be fulfilled.

There are some genuine reseller or wholesaler opportunities where advertisers are looking for existing businesses that buy amounts of stock and resell it.

Beware of companies asking for payment to become a sales agent, a joining fee, or a subscription. A small deposit on company equipment such as a laptop is understandable, but large payments for training or exclusive areas should start alarm bells ringing.

Only in that you have created another level between the sale and the principal, which also means you are diluting your commissions per sale. However, you may make more sales this way and make up for diluting your commissions.

Whether you take on these agencies is completely up to you. An experienced business with a proven product will be a very popular opportunity, as a result the commission may be low and the market more competitive. With a new business or product, you may be able to negotiate a higher commission percentage and form a relationship with a potentially successful business at an early stage.

You can question and investigate the company’s market research, their reasoning behind launching the products and services, and any market tests they have completed. You may also suggest a trial selling period before signing a binding agreement. Make sure you have a temporary agreement to ensure you get paid for sales during this period.

You might want to ensure you are paid on your first sales before you invest your full resources in your sales activity. Your contract should also offer some protection but get to know your principal.

All you need to decide is if you can sell the products or services and you are happy with the commission scheme. If you are happy and think or know you can close sales, then go for it! If you’re cautious or concerned, proceed slowly and give the opportunity a trial run.

  • You are your own boss
  • Flexibility in all areas of your work.
  • Work the hours that suit you and fit around your commitments.
  • Choose who you sell for.
  • Choose what you sell.
  • Choose how you sell: face to face, online, telephone.
  • Decide how much you want to earn.
  • Have more than one agency if you wish.
  • No-one can make you redundant.
  • You are paid on your sales.
  • You will need to work more independently and cannot depend on help and support from a sales manager.
  • You will not have a fixed salary, but over time you can get recurring income which will serve the same purpose.
  • You will need to do your own accounting and administration.
  • You make all the choices and decisions, so your success is dependent on you.
