The benefits of commission-based jobs vs hourly rates

Weighing up commission-based roles vs. hourly paid work? In this blog, we explore the pros and cons of both.


Choosing between commission-based and hourly paid jobs can be a difficult decision.


Although hourly paid work guarantees a reliable income, commission-based jobs have some great benefits that can outweigh those of a more traditional role. 


Increased pay


As a general rule, commission-based jobs pay better. It may sound scary not being able to rely on a steady income stream if you’re working on commission alone, but the pay rate will more than make up for it.


With Star Trader, you have the potential to earn up to £2750 each month. With the average UK monthly wage being £1826 every month, it’s a no-brainer.


Plus, if you’re good at what you do, word of mouth will quickly spread, ensuring you will always have work, and therefore money, coming in. 


You’re the boss


Hourly paid jobs are usually defined by set working hours. With commission-based work, you’re more likely to make the rules.


With Star Trader, for example, you can work whenever, and wherever, you want. If you have other commitments, this kind of set-up could be great for you.


New skills


Working for yourself will help you hone a whole new skillset. Independence, determination and a worker-bee attitude will all become second nature to you. Win win.


Got what it takes? Why not sign up to Star Trader today, and try out commission-based work for yourself. Plus, if you already do hourly paid work, why not try Star Trader? You can work around your commitments, whenever, and wherever, you want.
