  2. Do you contract for the sale of a product with a principal? A “principal” is a person who manufacturers, produces, imports or distributes a product or offers a service, contracts with a sales representative to solicit orders for the product or service and compensates the sales representative at least in part, by a commission.
  3. Are you compensated by a principal for selling products or services by commissions? A commission is compensation that accrues to a sales representative for payment by a principal that is earned through the last day on which the service was performed by the sales representative and which the rate is expressed as a percentage of the dollar amount of orders or sales or as a specified amount per order or per sale.
