View Full Version : Advice on commission amount
10-14-2003, 08:00 PM
My friend (and hairdresser) has offered to let me have a table at her salon, which is in one of the most affluent parts of town. She tells me that i don't have to pay her anything, but I'm not sure this is ok and not taking advantage (this was all her idea, however)
I am providing the table and all displays. The people would give her money that she would keep in an envelope for me. What do you guys think? Should I pay her a commission? If so, how much? How about a flat fee per month? Would that be better? Options? Opinions?

What part of being nice didn't you get? This is what I would do...........
Put the table up, take her offer. See how things go, then work out a deal with her. In the meantime, give her a piece of jewelry for her space, kindness and time.
I'm sure she knows what it's like to start a business, and she's helping you out.. Let her do this for you. She's a friend, and by showing your gratitude in goods for now, she will be appreciative and know thatyou are too.
Get your foot in the door, your name out there, and then.............make the deal.
I have friends that have shops, and they didn't offer this deal. I do a 30/70 split. Which is fine with me.
Again, only my opinion.
I agree with Chris. We had a similar offer. We took the free display space and sold a fair amount of finished jewelry. As I recall, we gave the owner jewelry to show our appreciation.. It was a good deal for everyone.

Oh, that's a good idea :) I will let her pick out a piece of jewelry or I will make something custom for her and then I'll play it by ear after that depending on sales. Thanks guys!
