How Factoring Brokers are Compensated

One of the most attractive features of this unique vocation is the compensation paid to referrers and it is this that attracts many to enter the industry.  Referrers, called brokers-of-record, are compensated in a variety of ways depending on the product.  Factoring brokers are experts in a variety of business finance products such as factoring, asset-based lending, merchant cash advances, SBA loans, microloans, and purchase order finance.  In the case of factoring, the referring broker earns aFactoring Broker Commissions percentage of the monthly fees (usually 10-15 percent) earned by the factor and will receive that each and every month.  This means that the commission for factoring referrals is residual and for the life of the referred account. 

Factoring brokers can build books of business over time which provides a steady stream of dependable monthly income.  It is not unusual for just an average referred factoring account to produce $300-$500 per month in commission income so it does not take a great number of active accounts for a factoring broker to break the $100,000 mark in income.
