“On-track” or “on-target” earnings (OTE)
The typical pay structure may be composed of a basic salary with an additional amount of commission. The package usually involves a contract between the company and the sales person that ensures a specific commission percentage, fixed lump payment, or a combination of both, provided that the salesperson hits specified sales targets. While all commission plans are unique, often exceeding sales targets results in higher commission rates on sales beyond target for a specific period.
