TRUTH #1 
 
THE FIRST PERSON TO SUGGEST A DISCOUNT IS USUALLY A SALEPERS 
 
WHY IT’S TRUE: In many stores, salespeople are authorized to give a maximum discount of 10% or 15%, when necessary, to close a sale. And when salespeople take the path of least resistance, guess what happens? The majority, if not all, of the sales are closed at that discount.  
 
PLAN OF ACTION: If you have a commission-based pay system, tie commissions into the sales price. If the piece is sold at the full price, then the salesperson should get a full commission. If discounted, cut the commission rate.
