Good day my friends. I am currently acting as a broker for a unique beverage offering. I am new to this and would greatly appreciate any guidance that you may be able to share with me. In particular, I am curious as to the appropriate percentage commission for different levels of beverage sales. I have extensive contacts to large grocery chains throughout the U.S. and have already been receiving very favorable feedback from them. The manufacturer has asked me to agree to a percentage of 5% on all sales that I am able to generate. Is this an adequate amount or should I hold out for more? I fear that my little bargaining power as a small distributor will put me in an awkward place, however my significant contacts could yield very favorable results for the company.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
