Broker
A BROKER is an individual person who arranges transactions between a buyer and a seller for a commission when the deal is executed. A broker who also acts as a seller or as a buyer becomes a principal party to the deal. Neither role should be confused with that of an agent —one who acts on behalf of a principal party in a deal. CONTENTS * 1 Definition * 2 Etymology * 3 Types of brokers * 4 References * 5 External links DEFINITIONA broker is an independent party, whose services are used extensively in some industries. A broker's prime responsibility is to bring sellers and buyers together and thus a broker is the third-person facilitator between a buyer and a seller. An example would be a real estate broker who facilitates the sale of a property. Brokers also can furnish market information regarding prices, products, and market conditions. Brokers may represent either the seller (90% of the time) or the buyer (10%) but not both at the same time

Purchasing
PURCHASING refers to a business or organization attempting to acquire goods or services to accomplish its goals. Alhough there are several organizations that attempt to set standards in the purchasing process, processes can vary greatly between organizations. Typically the word “purchasing” is not used interchangeably with the word “procurement ”, since procurement typically includes expediting , supplier quality, and transportation and logistics (T">. This involves three departments in the organization completing separate parts of the acquisition process. The three departments do not all report to the same senior manager, to prevent unethical practices and lend credibility to the process. These departments can be purchasing, receiving and accounts payable; or engineering, purchasing and accounts payable ; or a plant manager, purchasing and accounts payable

Commission (remuneration)
The payment of COMMISSION as remuneration for services rendered or products sold is a common way to reward sales people . Payments often are calculated on the basis of a percentage of the goods sold, a way for firms to solve the principal–agent problem by attempting to realign employees' interests with those of the firm. Sales personnel are thus paid, in part of entirely, on the basis of products or services successfully sold rather than being paid by the hour, by attempted sales, or by any other measure. A common form of commission sales is real estate ; in the United States, a real estate agent who successfully sells property will collect a commission of 6% of the sale price but a realtor who makes no sales will collect no salary or compensation whatsoever
